OCEANFRONT DOWNTOWN PENTHOUSE, BEST LOCATION TO SEE CITY

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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.

Mostly great, with some drawbacks

  • 4 of 5
The listing was accurate in its description of the property. It was very comfortable for the 3 nights we were there, and we liked the location on the waterfront near Chinatown. However, the bridge right outside our windows was under construction from 7 a.m. to 4 or 4:30, with lots of noise and exhaust from the heavy machinery. The weather happened to be quite warm, which normally would be nice, but the condo has no air conditioning and is south facing, so we were forced to have the windows open. It would have been nice to know about the construction ahead of time. The weather, of course, is unpredictable, but a/c would have been nice.

Very Romantic

  • 5 of 5
Recently my wife and I stayed at this condo for a romantic anniversary weekend, it was just as the photo's show , probably better. Walking distance to everything downtown, the view from the private rooftop patio was awesome at night over a bottle of vino. Jeanne and Marina were both a pleasure to deal with. Would defianatly stay here again.

Chic and Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
I normally book hotels but this time I wanted a different experience and also a full kitchen. Well, I loved it. It was so bright and because I was also doing some work it was a super location and view. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, best sleep I have had when I have traveled. I took breaks and went for a wonderful walk over the Johnson Street Bridge which was right there. Truly magical. I would stay her again in a heartbeat.Easy to park, easy to access and the owner super to deal with.

Exquisitely appointed larger studio in great yet quiet location

  • 5 of 5
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.
