Best VRBO Stay Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous place!! Our stay was absolutely perfect!!

The location was wonderful ... easy access to everything!!

The hospitaliity was amazing. We really appreciated the goodies left in the fridge ... and I enjoyed fixing breakfast both mornings we were there!! We were able to sleep in and just relax. Even the rain did not dampen our visit!!

LOVED the showerhead and seat in the master bath!!

All the glass allowed us to enjoy the view, even from our bed.

The outdoor seating area was nice too!!

Our only regret ... that we could not stay longer!!

Thank you so much for sharing your home!!

We just spent 9 days at Kal's place. What can I say about the Mermaid Loft that hasn't already been said! Amazing, beautiful, fantastic, wonderful etc! It has a lovely patio and garden facing the water, great little bbq. Interior is ultra modern. The building is really quiet, nothing disturbs your good night's sleep! There is nothing a person could want for while staying at the Mermaid Loft! It's close to everything! Kal got back to me prior to booking very quickly and his mom Frances is an angel here on earth. When we got there she had purchased cream for our coffee, butter and even a few snacks. I have used VRBO many times before but never have I had a condo where everything supplied even spices! There are just so many good things to say about the condo and the family! We will return for sure in the future but hopefully next time for a much longer stay! Thank you so much!

Enjoying Victoria

  • 4 of 5

We just spent the long week end in this beautiful loft. Absolutely perfect location, wonderful patio, clean and spacious accommodations. Frances contacted us prior to our arrival and was there to welcome us - even provided milk/cream and snacks, so we were set for our morning coffee!

Thank you for a stress free booking.

Beautifully appointed home in a central location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is gorgeous! It is well decorated, exceptionally clean, and very comfortable for our 5 night stay. It has every amenity you could possible need, and the manager, Frances, was a pleasure to meet.

The condo is on the bottom level of the Mermaid Wharf building, with a dedicated parking spot in a gated garage.

Fantastic Place, Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely return. The owners did a great job of communicating-- Francis gave us terrific directions from the ferry, greeted us warmly and graciously, showed us around the condo (which is even slicker than the photos) and provided ideas for dinner, shopping and events. We even had an opportunity to join her family for a party with some of their neighbors and friends during a BC Day fireworks party-- an experience that made our trip more than a vacation. The condo is right on the water taxi stop for Chinatown and there are terrific brewpubs, restaurants and cool little alleys and shops to explore. Walk to the inner harbor took us 15 minutes, walk across the bridge to WestVic about an hour and half. Thank you, Francis and Toivo.
