"Our stay at Pied-À-Terre Harbour Penthouse at Mermaid Wharf was everything as advertised on VRBO. Booking the unit was quick and easy, with owner, Teresa, responding within a day. From check-in with Colette on our day of arrival, to our final day at the condo, all enquiries were handled graciously and efficiently. Without a doubt, we would again make this condo our home-away-from-home on our next visit to Victoria.
The unit, within easy walking distance to several of the City’s restaurants, entertainment venues and sights, was secure, clean and beautifully decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen and a private underground parking space. Having the Harbour Ferry and Water Taxi service operating from the building’s docks came in very handy on those occasions when we were too tired to walk back to the condo.
Among the highlights of our stay were our regular walks on the Galloping Goose or Songhees trail systems, a bus tour, and watching from our private balcony the various activities on the Gorge Waterway: boating, kayaking, rowing, canoeing, board paddling, and rehearsal by the Harbour Ferry Captains of their summer Water Ballet.
All in all, reasonably-priced accommodations at a very convenient location made this an exceptionally wonderful and enjoyable holiday."
