Overview

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

If this unit is booked we have two other condos in the building. 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 two. There is 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.

romantic and very bright

  • 5 of 5

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.

Victoria studio condo

  • 4 of 5

Unit was nicely appointed, very clean with good quality linens and furnishings. Bath had shower as well as huge soaking tub. Would suggest that bath soap be provided so not necessary to go out to purchase. View of city lights and harbor were nice - it should be noted that the unit looks at Johnson Street Bridge being renovated/enlarge and old building undergoing preservation so construction started at 7 am--not a problem for us but travelers should be aware. We didn't use the garage but enjoyed the sense of security with the "fob" style access keys to all entries. Super location if you like to walk around the city and was just a 15 minute walk from ferry. Would stay here again.

I highly recomend this condo! It was absolutely spotless, with everything that you could possibly need. The location was excellent, within walking distance of shopping and many local sights and restaurants. The underground secure parking was a bonus. I hope to return again next year.

Romantic Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great! Everything I was hoping for--cozy, romantic, and comfortable. The location is perfect, the view is gorgeous, and the building itself is well maintained and secure. Jeanie, the owner, was gracious and even recommended some great restaurants as well. I would absolutely recommend this listing, and hope to come back myself sometime soon.

We had an excellent time here. The condo was more than we expected. it was a great place to stay. we would stay here again and would recommend this condo to others. we arrived a little early while the girls were still cleaning the condo but they were more than helpful and very polite. we can't say enough about the condo and the hospitality of the owner. Well done!!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the condo. Genie was very accommodating about our early arrival, and everything went smoothly. You can't beat the location for easy walking around Victoria. I'm not a bathtub person, but couldn't resist soaking in the beautiful tub. Only downside to the condo is that there is major construction going on at the property next door, so noise and obstructed views right now.
