Property description

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, 32' flat screen Panasonic TV w/ Optik TV digital programming, washer/ dryer, gas fireplace and secure underground parking, plus more. The Pied-â-Terre Harbour Penthouse sleeps one to three with both a queen-sized bed and a sofa hide-a-bed, complimented by quality linens.

This “sweet suite” is conveniently located in the modern and secure, Mermaid Wharf building in Victoria’s “Design District” - a historic part of the west side 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. As numerous restaurants and entertainment are walking distance from the Mermaid Wharf building, it makes an evening on the town stress free without the concerns of public transportation or drinking/ driving issues. Many forms of off-island transportation are available, if desired. There are seaplane services and Ferry transportation to Vancouver, Seattle, Port Angeles and Bellingham that are easy and convenient. Additionally, there's the Victoria Harbour Heliport offering Helijet service and charters.

Please note, we provide a smoke and pet free environment for the comfort of all our guests.

Again, one dedicated secure parking space w/ bicycle storage is provided during your stay at Mermaid Wharf at no additional cost.

Please inquire by email.
