Great views of a working harbour

The City Harbourside Suite is located overlooking Victoria's busy Upper Harbour Area, where there's always something going on. It's great for watching tugboats come and go, sailboats, rowing boats, kayakers and canoeists, as they play on the sheltered waters.

Right at your doorstep is a Harbour Ferry Stop and a seasonal Water Taxi service that will quickly sail you to the Inner Harbour or, anywhere else around the harbour you may want to go, such as Fisherman’s Wharf, Point Ellice House, the reversing falls on the Gorge Waterway or the West Bay Marina.

Next-door is The Canoe Club that has it's own Micro Brewery and make some very tasty ales. In the summer you can dine on their waterfront terrace, enjoying the afternoon sun while sipping on your favourite beverage or enjoying a delicious meal from their menu.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, head over to the Canoe Club for the best live music in town, it's a whole lot of fun and it's just a stones throw away. (Don't worry about disturbing your sleep patterns, they close down at midnight, have noise level rules.)

So 'go with the flow' and enjoy the ambience and the fun.

Head one block up the street and you’re in Canada’s oldest Chinatown, where you’ll find many unique shops and restaurants. Explore the “secret” alleyways, like Fan Tan Alley and Dragon Alley or shop for Asian curios and foods or locally-grown and imported produce.

Just around the corner is Victoria’s historic Old Town area, where you can visit Market Square to browse the shops or enjoy a musical concert. This is also the location of the “Lo Jo Fashion Area” the home of many locally-owned and operated boutique fashion emporiums.

A few minutes away you'll find all kinds of things to do; such as whale watching adventures, deep sea fishing, walking and cycling trails, beaches, gardens and parks, historic buildings, walking and bus tours, wineries and vineyards, organic farms, forests to take your breath away and mountains you can climb to see incredible views.

Steve and Trish own and/or manage 6 vacation rental apartments in downtown Victoria. We have traveled to many places in the world and love meeting new people and making new friends. We hope you will be one of them.

Steve or Trish purchased this condo in 2006

The tremendous location, close to the Harbour Ferry Stop, across from the Canoe Club (great food, micro brewery), a few minutes walk to Chinatown and Old Town, make this the perfect location for visitors.

You're never more than a short walk from sightseeing, many attractions, restaurants, shopping, banks, cafes, theatres. You are, in fact, in the heart of everything that makes downtown Victoria such a great place to be.

Great apartment ,excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5
Having booked from UK we were impressed by the promptness of replies to our queries from the host. Very comprehensive directions were supplied and we were met on time at the address by Steve and Sue. The apartment was excellent and proved to be very comfortable and well equipped for our week's stay. There was fruit, tea, coffee Milk cleaning materials already supplied thus avoiding the need for a shopping trip. Our impression of our hosts were that they were considerate, non intrusive and most helpful when asked. The apartment has a great location being a stroll from downtown and having ready access to roads out of Victoria. We had a memorable stay and would commend the rental without hesitation

Hated to leave - can't wait to return

Hated to leave - can't wait to return
  • 5 of 5
This rental exceeded our expectations. It was perfect and bigger than
advertised as a studio. The picture windows and Juliet balcony provided
memorable sceneries from dawn til dusk.

Our wonderful host and hostess, Steve and Trish, went above and beyond to
ensure we had the best accomodations during our stay -- they even went out of their way to pick us up at the bus station after so many erratic changes in our schedule. What a relief it was for us to have such a warm welcome and assistance with our luggages especially after a 4-hr ferry/bus commute from
Vancouver to Victoria.

The rental has a plethora of information for activities. Our favorites
included: Butchart and Butterfly Gardens, the Hippo Bus, Parliament and
Empress (free), Beacon Hill Park...we took a 3-day rendezvous to Seattle, WA
via the Clipper...and the list activities (that don't require a personal
car) goes on and on.

There are also lots of restaurants to eat nearby (including the Canoe Club
across the street, which had wonderful live music playing from Thursday to
Saturday night. Some days were great for lazing inside - full kitchen
provides alternate opportunities to practice our culinary skills (heh heh).

We hated to leave. Can't wait to return -- and when we do, we're definitely calling Steve and Trish at Citylife Suites.

Owner's Response: Roy and Mary, what can we say? Your review is outstanding and we so much appreciate all the positive comments.
We just loved having you as our guests and wish that we could have spent more time with you while you were here, but you were too busy doing all kinds of things:-)
Anyway, we really hope you'll be coming back again soon and we will keep the homefires burning until you do.
Our warmest wishes to both of you!

We Enjoyed Our Victoria Holiday

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our holiday in Victoria and area, it is a very beautiful city with great walking along the harbour. Our condo in the Mermaid building was very nice, clean and very well equipped with everything you need and was exactly as described in the listing. The condo is in walking distance from restaurants and shopping and has a great view of the upper working harbour, there is always something to see. The Canoe Club below has a good menu and great beer. Steve and Trish were great hosts and informed us about the condo and the areas attractions. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Warren, we certainly enjoyed meeting you and are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the City Harbourside Suite. It is a great spot if you want to be close to the sights and sounds of Victoria and the neighbourhood around the property is filled with so many great places. Having the Harbour Ferry stop just outside the building is a definite bonus too, as well as the great views of the upper harbour. We hope you'll come and stay again, the welcome mat will always be out for you.

Wonderful Upscale Condo, Spotless and so comfortable. Felt like Home.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here 10 days and absolutely loved it. the condo was clean, spacious and very well appointed. We loved that the building was a safe and secure building. We loved that is was so close to everything in the inner harbour. Steve met us at the condo and showed us how everything worked and gave us some tips on dining and exploring. We loved coming home in the evening to relax and watch the activity in the harbour. So cozy and comfortable. We can't say enough about this condo. We hope to return for a longer stay.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
From the time we arrived to the time we left we truly enjoyed this studio apartment. We were transported to and from the ferry dock by the managers, a most delightful couple. Downtown was within walking distance and Victoria is very quant and clean. Apartment was spotless and new. In spite of the cool rainy weather we had a wonderful time and would rent this apartment again should we return.
