AFFORDABLE WATERFRONT LUXURY DOWNTOWN: APRIL WK/$950; EASTER WK.END TH-SUN $450

Victoria Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo,1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Be sure to see our VIDEO of the condo at the top left link on this page which brings to life this harbour oasis with its SPECTACULAR WATER VIEWS, and downtown walking access.

This luxurious condo FRONTS directly on Victoria's harbour with NO ROAD OR TRAFFIC running by out front, in a seven story residential building, offering both scenic peacefulness and convenient access. (Beware of SIDE condos here which are easily disturbed by late night restaurants or early morning garbage pick up and rush hour traffic.) A short walk will bring you to all major downtown attractions, including the Empress Hotel and Convention Center, the Parliament Buildings, the Museum, and some of Victoria’s finest restaurants. Nearby are many boutiques, theatres and shopping opportunities.

Why not have breakfast on the balcony while watching up close seals frolic and kayakers paddle past? On a cool evening, perhaps you would enjoy curling up by the living room fireplace with one of the books or DVDs provided, as the harbour lights twinkle on.

Wake refreshed from the comfort of the sumptuous KING SIZE pillow-top bed surrounded by carefully selected furnishings. Enjoy a romantic second fireplace, in the bedroom, and view rowers and harbour traffic right from the bed. A comfortable Queen-size pull-out sofa bed is available in the living room.

Always verify that the condo you are renting is a real 1 bedroom: many small studio condos are advertised as 1 bedrooms when the bedroom and living space are in one room with no wall and door separation very much limiting living space and flexibility. Ours is a full King bedroom with ample square footage, and privacy to live comfortably, allowing someone to watch TV while another sleeps or reads undisturbed.

Savour meals prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, and elegantly served at the mahogany inlaid dining table. All types of cooking necessities are provided including 2 ovens, one a convection oven.

This condo also offers AIR CONDITIONING to ensure no summer days are uncomfortable, and reduced glare window tinting to maximize your comfort in the increased temperatures of these last few summers. The four piece bath includes a deep soaker tub, shower, hair dryer, and two robes for your relaxation.

Charming water taxis zip into the wharf below and will transport you, inexpensively, to Victoria's many attractions. Should you wish, whale watching and kayaking excursions are just a few steps away. Perhaps you would choose instead one of the many golf courses, or miles of waterside bike paths. Bike rentals are next door.

Sunset is a lovely time to enjoy a glass of wine on the rooftop patio, overlooking the boats and seaplanes, while dinner sizzles on the gas BBQ, or on your private, west, sunset facing balcony contemplating the water activity below.

The Mermaid Suite, perched over the harbour, is a haven of scenic luxury, with waterFRONT views and delightful walking access to downtown amenities, yet removed from the downtown bustle .

The condo is 5 minutes walking distance from the Seaplane Terminal to Vancouver, 15 minutes from the Seattle Ferry port, 35 minutes from the Victoria Airport, and 40 minutes from the British Columbia Ferry Terminal at Swartz Bay. We provide dedicated underground parking, and are happy to assist you with airport pick up, grocery delivery, reduced rental car rates, and information on restaurants and attractions.

Pets only by prior written arrangement, and for longer terms than 1 week please.DO VISIT OUR HOME WEBSITE, WWW.MERMAIDWHARFVICTORIA.COM , to explore the links we have provided to enable you to enjoy Victoria fully by starting your vacation planning in advance.

The abundance of variety in scenery, and activities, both recreational, and cultural, really impressed us in Victoria. Biking, whale watching, garden touring, museums, wineries, theates, the symphony- all in a Pacific island community with Canada's most moderate climate. The ease of manoeuvring around a small town without freeways, and the friendliness of a seaside community that has the charm of the little harbour ferries, all conjures up a peaceful haven separate from the frenzied real world.

Here you really can have the beauty of Victoria nestled at the water's edge without any of the usual downtown intrusions such as noise, congestion, smog, but still have immediate walking access to shops, and restaurants once you leave the condo. How nice to move about on foot, or on a bike to take in the fresh sea air rather than have to fight for a parking spot every time you venture out. Plus the changing panorama on the waterway just off the balcony will encourage you to slow down, and enjoy the captivating scenery and sunsets.

Romantic Vacation Getaway

We just came back from celebrating our 27th year anniversary. Don and Colleen had a bottle of champagne and a card waiting for us on our arrival. Francis was great! He gave us a tour of the building and great restaurant recommendations. That was the start of a wonderful week. The condo was beautiful and in a great location. It had everything we needed and more. We were able to walk everywhere. The rowers were out every morning and afternoon. We could sit on the balcony with a cup of coffee and something from the bakery and watch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Victoria. It is perfect. We hope to come back again.

Owner's Response: Katy,

I am so glad you stayed for the full week to celebrate your anniversary. We find when guests come for only 3-5 days, they exhaust themselves visiting so many of Victoria's scenic sites and boundless recreation without being able to relax fully at the condo. You wisely reserved the time to enjoy both Victoria and the harbor waterfront from the condo's comforts since you had time to enjoy a balance of exploration with leisure.
There is so much more to explore outside the city and elsewhere on the island. There are ferry day trips to other nearby islands or a quick flight to Vancouver for the day on the harbor float planes just a 5 minute walk from the condo. I so hope you can return to try some of these new adventures. Maybe for your 28th anniversary!
Colleen

We were in Victoria for a wedding and wanted to stay downtown. We found e Mermaid Suite and liked what we saw in the picture on VRBO. They don't do the condo justice. It is absolutely beautiful and in a fantastic location. Everything about it exceeded our expectations (which are pretty high to start with). Colleen and Don were easy to work with and the arrival went as planned with Francis. thank you for a wonderful few days of exploring a gorgeous city. We had outstanding weather and walked everywhere. I would, and will, definitely recommend this property to anyone going to Victoria.

Thanks for recognizing our efforts, and our special location on Victoria's downtown harbour. We hope you can visit again. Colleen

AMAZING ACCOMMODATIONS, AMAZING EXPERIENCE

  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
Hello, Colleen!

We LOVED LOVED LOVED Victoria and our amazing accommodations! It has been 17 years since we have been there and it was like seeing it all new
again....hmmm, must be our age..

Francis was wonderful - picked us up at the airport, gave us the option of
the scenic road into Victoria which was beautiful, and showed us around the
suite, the parking and the building. We were able to come in to the condo so
early because they had just finished cleaning from the previous renters.

You have a beautiful property there, and so very convenient to everything.
We love walking and in fact did not even rent a car until our last evening so
we could go to the gardens, etc. on the way to the airport the next day. We
walked to Craigdarragh, walked to Fishermans Wharf, Westbay Marina, the
beach, and everything was breathtaking. The weather was quite cool but that did not matter at all. We spent one cooler windy day at the museum and took in 3 Imax shows, and one Saturday was quite rainy so we spent most of the day relaxing in our -home-. I read an entire book from your selection there and Dennis enjoyed channel surfing.....just like at home! And yes, even though it was chilly, we still sat on the balcony with our wine and snacksand took in the amazing view and constant activity on the water!

We did find a favorite place where we felt so at home.....Swans Hotel.
Always entertaining there, and through extensive testing at various
locations Dennis proclaimed their Seafood Chowder as the best in Victoria!
We truly loved all the little brewhouses we checked out as well.

I have already referred you and Francis as well to some people we met there
from Indiana. They go to Victoria about once a year and were this year
staying at Executive House. When we told them how great your place was,
they took down the info so hopefully they will end up there one day.

I have attached a few photos just in case you need some for testimonials!
Thank you again, Colleen - it was an amazing experience and was so very true to your website description - much appreciated!

BREATHTAKING SCENERY, COMFORTABLE STAY

  • Submitted: Jul 13, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Hello Colleen,
Thank you so much for your farewell note. We had such a wonderful time in Victoria, and so enjoyed exploring the island. We spent Canada Day down by the Inner Harbor and celebrated your beautiful country with everyone there. It was a sunny, beautiful day, and we ended it sipping the champagne you provided - thank you - while sitting on the balcony watching the fireworks. It was a fun day.

We spent one day driving along the west coast and another driving along the east coast. We visited Chemainus and saw all the wall murals and had lunch in Nanaimo at a wonderful little Greek restaurant called Asteras Greek Taverna. We visited Butchart Gardens -incredible-walked along the Dallas Road paths, and spent lots of time walking downtown and exploring all the little shops and alleys. The location of the condo was absolutely perfect!

We ate lunch at Canoe on our first day, and had dinner at Ulla, my favorite place for Halibut. We also ate dinners at Spinnakers - took the water taxi which was fun - the Black Olive, and Il Terrazzo.

We were blessed with beautiful weather while in Victoria. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Don and I have traveled extensively and I can honestly say that Vancouver Island is one of the most naturally beautiful places we have ever been. A one week stay really was not long enough, and we have already talked about coming back.

We so enjoyed staying in the Mermaid Suite. We had everything we needed and felt very comfortable while there. It was fun to watch all the activity on the harbor in the evenings, and soothing to hear the call of the gulls. We have visited many places in Europe and Canada, all of them beautiful, but I told Don that if I could relocate to anywhere in the world, I believe I would choose Victoria.

Thank you again, for providing such a lovely place to stay while enjoying Victoria and the island.

Yvonne

Great Location, No Car Needed

  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2012

Your condo is beautiful, but your location is even better. We walked and biked the nearby trails along the water, went whale watching directly from the condo pier, walked to the float plane terminal to spend a day in Vancouver after an early morning 20 minute flight into that harbour, and walked to Via Rail to take the historic train up to Qualicum through gorgeous scenery for the day. We had an amazing time without needing a car. Thank you.
