OCEANFRONT DOWNTOWN PENTHOUSE, BEST LOCATION TO SEE CITY

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This waterfront penthouse is located in the heart of downtown Victoria in the Mermaid building. On the waterfront of the harbour and the edge of the Gorge waterway, the Mermaid Building allows its guests to experience downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, the Gorge Waterway, the ocean, the upper part of the island and Vancouver, with ease.

Some of Victoria’s most popular restaurants surround the building, making it easy to have gourmet meals with out the worry of taxis or drinking and driving.

Take a Whale watching tour right outside the door. Or rent a kayak and glide through the harbour to the open ocean to discover the Pacific’s wild life. Or paddle up the Gorge waterway and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Salmon Fish with a charter or rent a power boat and just take it easy touring Victoria from the water’s perspective.

Just steps away, the harbour sea planes take passengers in a half hour flight to downtown Vancouver, offering great shopping on Robson street, Theatres, Stanley Park and more, and all in a day allowing one to return home for dinner.

The Mermaid neighbours Historic China Town with its many vegetable stores, restaurants and curio shops.

Romantic horse drawn carriages carry passengers through the inner harbour past the parliament buildings, the world famous Royal BC Museum, live entertainment, Underwater Sea Gardens, Omnimax Theatre, Miniature World, Double Decker sight seeing tours, and tour buses to the renowned Butchart Gardens.

Cycle, stroll, run, or even ride a horse on the picturesque Galloping Goose Trail. This multi-use trail, formerly a railway line, moves right beside the Mermaid Building, through urban, rural and wilderness scenery on its 55-kilometre journey from Victoria to Sooke. Whether you're commuting to work, meandering on a weekend afternoon or pacing yourself from Sidney to Sooke, the trail is yours to enjoy.

Catch the little Harbour Ferry stopping at the Mermaid and travel right up the Gorge waterway to Tillicum and down to the Empress.

The Suite sleeps four. There is a hide-a-bed queen and a queen bed. Nothing has been spared in furnishing this space. It is fully equipped with a 32 inch flat screen Smart TV, stereo, DVD player, high speed internet and modem, microwave, dishwasher, stove, fridge, blender, toaster, coffee maker, washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom has a claw foot tub, separate shower and pedastall sink.

We found this top floor condo after 6 years searching all across North
America looking for the perfect winter get away from snow. We were so
impressed by this romantic and very bright penthouse apartment and the great
views of city and inner harbor with all the activity. This was the best and
our favorite place we stayed in Victoria. It is ideally located for
restaurants, shopping and all the tourist attractions. The halibut tacos at
the Canoe across the street are amazing.

Exquisitely appointed larger studio in great yet quiet location

We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful, light filled studio apartment. It has everything from a full kitchen to a roof top garden with amazing views. It is beautifully appointed and has a gorgeous, classy bathroom. It even comes with a parking spot and free Wifi. It is on the water near Chinatown and close to many restaurants, as well as the trendy Market Square area. Across the Johnson street bridge, take a beautiful waterfront stroll (or jog) almost 3 km towards Esquimault, passing islets, coves, but all on a nice walkway or boardwalk. The downtown shops, inner Harbor, and Royal BC museum are also within comfortable walking access. We certainly hope to be back. This place is a gem.

Getaway

We stayed here and totally enjoyed the awesome location! Lots of historical architecture around, including Chinatown and downtown, with great access to the sea wall for runs and walks and tons of good restaurants to choose from right nearby. Loved the floor to ceiling windows in the suite, and the newly renovated bathroom has a big brand new modern tub and contemporary flooring. Very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed too plus there’s a private rooftop deck. I agree with the other reviews, we’d absolutely stay here again. The city has awesome cycling trails and this condo is one minute from the start of that whole network. You can ride all winter in this city! There's so much to do here. Great to have the secure bike and kayak racks in the underground parking. Owner was super accommodating on short notice.

Excellent Location and Beautiful Condo with Great Service!!!

The place was fabulous and we will definately rent it again next time we are in Victoria :) I can't say enough good things about how well we were treated. You went above and beyond in every way possible and we were both amazed at how kind and helpful you were during our stay.

We had vehicle trouble on the way to Victoria which delayed our arrival time from late afternoon until later that evening but you were still able to meet us at the condo and show us everything at what would have been a very incovenient time for her given the last minute change . On top of it all you were able to arrange for pick up our race packages for us as we no longer were able to make it to the Race expo prior to it closing at 6pm due to our vehicle trouble. This was a huge help to us and we really appreciated it :) When we arrived to the condo we were kindly let in, told about the area and condo and were welcomed with our race packages waiting for us neatly on the kitchen table. I must say I don't think we have ever had such great service and had someone go above and beyond for a couple of strangers as we experienced with this stay.

We loved the location of the condo. We were able to walk to everything as the location was so convenient. The inside of the condo was beautiful and we enjoyed the private roof top patio. Great Place and and Great Location!!!
