Fantastic condo on the Victoria waterfront that far exceeded our expectations!!!
"Awesome views of the harbor, well equipped condo as well as extremely cozy. The name "serenity" is so very appropriate. After exploring Victoria by walking or water taxi, it was so refreshing to come back to the Serenity Harbour View Penthouse and completely unwind. The quaint deck with great views as well as the wonderful private roof top deck were spectacular places to enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the unique sites of this lovely harbor town. Seeing the sea planes taxi out for take-off and watching the sea planes approach for their water landing was also very unique.
Perfect location to explore Victoria on foot. Chinatown is one block away, the Public Market three blocks away and many of Victoria's must see attractions as well as most of the city's great restaurants can be reached by a short walk or combination with the water taxi. A great walk we did was to walk across the bridge and walk the Songhees Walkway that hugs the harbor to West Bay Marina. It's an enjoyable walk, about 1.7 miles that is easy and affords the opportunity of seeing the sea planes take-off & land plus other boat activity within the harbor.
At West Bay Marina we took the water taxi across the harbor for just $5 each to Fisherman's Wharf. A must see area with boats, homes moored to the docks and quite a few specialty quick serve type restaurants that are very good. We walked back to the condo via the walkway along the harbor. Another great walk that goes by the BC legislature buildings and in front of Wharf Street. We enjoyed this excursion, walk so much; we did it again the next day.
If you have never seen the resident Orca whales, this is highly recommended and it's a short walk to the various whale watching operators on Wharf St. Buchart Gardens is an absolute must see. What an amazing, beautiful and tranquil place that is breathtaking.
Parking is secure in the parking deck and the designated space is just a few steps from the elevator. While some reviews have indicated the bridge construction was disruptive, we were not bothered. It also appears that when the new bridge is complete the already terrific views from the condo will be even better.
The owners and their manager are wonderful, very caring and helped make our great stay even better.
This trip was everything we had hoped for and so much more!

"There were 11 of us--7 adults, 4 kids--and we rented the whole chalet (both suites). It worked out great. Having two attached suites allowed us to have some privacy, when we needed it, but also to get together communally. The chalet is clean, spacious, and new. The kitchens are we'll equipped. It was particularly nice to have those great barbecues. The only downside was not being right on the hill and not having the village to go for evening walks. That said, driving to the bottom of the Hawk chair was hassle free."

"We very much enjoyed our stay in this very pretty, clean, comfortable condo. The views are spectacular, especially the evening arrivals of the float planes into the inner harbour. Lawrence is a fabulous host. We will happily return and again and would highly recommend this unit to others."

"Thank you Donna and Wayne for your wonderful home. It truly is a home away from home. It is beautifully situated on the Island and allowed us to commute to everything with wonderful day trips and ending each day with a return to relax and finish our days in true comfort.
Everything was there for us. We had wonderful meals in your dining room and wonderful peaceful sleeps in the three comfortable bed rooms.
We stayed for two weeks and were very sad to have to leave.
We would definitely recommend your home for those that want a peaceful and relaxing place to stay while on the Island.
