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.

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.
