Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Shera and Chidakash are in love with people and with travelling. This work has culminated in the building of a unique home and seaside retreat called Serenity by the Sea Retreat, on Galiano Island, in the Gulf Islands near Victoria. Shera is an artist and maintains a large studio gallery at home. She also has remarkable skills as a therapist and healer which are enhanced by the extraordinary energies of Serenity by the Sea, its waterfront and gardens. Chidakash manages the retreat and has created a unique style of bodywork called Expansive Body Integration. Together they offer transformational journeys to Peru and annual trips to Thailand to care for elephants hands-on. We are delighted that our Victoria Properties at Mermaid Wharf as a retreat to support people wanting to make their own discoveries and explore their interests and creativity.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
When we walked into this condo we were blown away by the dramatic panoramic expanse of harbour view. It was a 'Wow!' factor that was irresistible. And we have already been delighted by the location of Mermaid Wharf and its proximity to so much in Victoria. We are at retirement age and here we will have all the pleasures of being in the centre with non of the hassles of traffic and parking!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This stunning penthouse property is a beautiful refuge for anyone who would like to rise above the turmoil and traffic of the city. Everything about it seems to be a celebration of the Harbour, and the ocean, the open sky. The patio garden on the rooftop adds a fabulous dimension to this waterfront experience. With a fridge and a barbeque and lots of seating, it is a delightful place to host family, friends, or colleagues
