About the Pied-à-Terre Harbour Penthouse in Victoria, BC, Canada:

Beautifully designed, this luxurious south-west view, corner penthouse on the harbour’s edge creates a unique sensory experience for the sophisticated traveler. The suite was renovated, May 2011, and the use of local materials, suppliers and trades makes it uniquely Victoria. Furnished to 'stand out from the crowd,” all fabrics and furniture pieces were selected by Interior Designer, Teresa Ryback, who is recognized for creating grand prize lottery dream homes and luxury residential properties. The Pied-à-Terre features two balconies on the main level that open to create a refreshing cross breeze and a private, rooftop deck that can be accessed via an in-suite staircase (luxury yacht-type ladder) or by way of elevator and stairs from the building’s hallway. A verdured, common-area adjoins the Pied-à-Terre’s private roof deck, where a gas barbeque is accessed on a first-come basis.

Perfect for vacation or business travel, this exquisitely furnished, full 1 bedroom/ 1 bath, comfortably appointed penthouse boasts Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, silestone countertops in the (fully equipped) kitchen and bath, stainless steel appliances, high-speed internet connection, 50' flat screen Panasonic TV w/ Optik TV digital programming, NETFLIX, washer/ dryer, gas fireplace and secure underground parking, plus more.

This “sweet suite” is conveniently located in the modern and secure, Mermaid Wharf building in Victoria’s “Design District” - a historic part of downtown, just steps away from entertainment, water activities and eclectic shopping. Enjoy the spectacular views of water, sunsets and the rhythm of the downtown lights. Access to activities and amenities is easy and near endless from this well situated location-!

It is truly a jewel in the heart of Victoria.

Steeped in history, rich in culture and blanketed in colour, downtown Victoria is a very pedestrian friendly area; numerous restaurants and entertainment are walking distance from the Mermaid Wharf building.

There are seaplane services and Ferry transportation to Vancouver, Seattle, Port Angeles and Bellingham that are easy and convenient.

                                                                      We loved staying in the Pied-A-Terre Penthouse in Victoria. The size is ideal - compact and convenient. Our check in was easy and effective. The kitchen was well-stocked, and the living area was beautiful and comfortable. It has a lovely little patio next to the kitchen/dining area which we enjoyed for meals. However the private roof patio is amazing! Overlooking the harbor, the view is spectacular, and we enjoyed a visiting seagull as well as drinks with a peregrine falcon one evening. Memories of our vacation will stay with us in the beautiful pictures, and we definitely recommend it for any couple visiting Victoria.

                                                                      My two friends and I stayed at the Pied-A-Terre on the long weekend in April. It has beautiful views and the apartment was stocked with all the items we needed to be able to eat in, with a grocery store just a short walk away in China-town. We loved that it was so close to downtown for easy walks to the museum, shopping, the harbour and there are many fabulous restaurants in the area. www.ilterrazzo.com, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Canoe Pub, Shizen Japanese Restaurant ... and so many more. There is a really neat store one block away called Full Circle World... loved it for unique items.

                                                                      When we arrived at the Pied-à-Terre, our gracious host Teresa gave us a full tour of the penthouse and we were immediately impressed.

                                                                      It was beautifully decorated and fully equipped with all the amenities including fridge, dishwasher , washer/dryer, TV, etc.

                                                                      Gorgeous floor to ceiling windows so we could enjoy the harbour view from anywhere.

                                                                      We enjoyed the 2 patios which included an incredible roof top deck.

                                                                      Located in a fabulous central location everything was within a short walk away, including restaurants, pubs, boating, transportation, gift shops etc.

                                                                      The underground parking spot was close to the door/elevators.

                                                                      We should also mention that the price was very reasonable.

                                                                      We had a wonderful stay at the Pied-à-Terre and would highly recommend it.
