Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

If this unit is booked we have two other condos in the building.This oceanfront, corner, unit with floor to ceiling windows along two walls looks into the harbour in downtown Victoria. We also can accommodate some two day rentals

Sit on your private covered balcony and watch the boats in the inner and upper harbours during the day and the sunsets at night.

Walk to all downtown amenities. Take in whale watching, kayaking, water taxi and biking right outside your door on the wharf. BBQ or relax on the roof top patio.

Located in the heart of downtown Victoria in the Mermaid building. On the waterfront of the harbour and the edge of the Gorge waterway, the Mermaid Building allows its guests to experience downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, the Gorge Waterway, the ocean, the upper part of the island and Vancouver, with ease.

Some of Victoria’s most popular restaurants surround the building, making it easy to have gourmet meals with out the worry of taxis or drinking and driving.

Take a Whale watching tour right outside the door. Or rent a kayak and glide through the harbour to the open ocean to discover the Pacific’s wild life. Or paddle up the Gorge waterway and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Salmon Fish with a charter or rent a power boat and just take it easy touring Victoria from the water’s perspective.

Just steps away, the harbour sea planes take passengers in a half hour flight to downtown Vancouver, offering great shopping on Robson street, Theatres, Stanley Park and more, and all in a day allowing one to return home for dinner.

The Mermaid neighbours Historic China Town with its many vegetable stores, restaurants and curio shops.

Romantic horse drawn carriages carry passengers through the inner harbour past the parliament buildings, the world famous Royal BC Museum, live entertainment, Underwater Sea Gardens, Omnimax Theatre, Miniature World, Double Decker sight seeing tours, and tour buses to the renowned Butchart Gardens.

Cycle, stroll, run, or even ride a horse on the picturesque Galloping Goose Trail. This multi-use trail, formerly a railway line, moves right beside the Mermaid Building, through urban, rural and wilderness scenery on its 55-kilometre journey from Victoria to Sooke. Whether you're commuting to work, meandering on a weekend afternoon or pacing yourself from Sidney to Sooke, the trail is yours to enjoy.

Catch the little Harbour Ferry stopping at the Mermaid and travel right up the Gorge waterway to Tillicum and down to the Empress.

Nothing has been spared in furnishing this space. It is fully equipped with a 32 inch flat screen Smart TV, DVD player, high speed Wifi internet and modem, microwave, dishwasher, stove, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had such a great visit in your lovely city. Such a nice escape from the cold. We really enjoyed the magnificent sunsets. We found it so easy to walk everywhere. A real plus. Being right in the heart of the old town was lovely to enjoy the independent boutiques and restaurants. We would choose this part of the city again. The condo is so modern and beautifully equipped. Although the condo is not large, we did not feel cramped. Everything is full sized. We would like to recommend the condo to all. Please feel free to post this letter on your web site

Beautiful View, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this vacation rental in Victoria. Completely remodeled and decorated with style, it has a view from the whole unit of a working area of the harbor. We enjoyed sitting on the little balcony table and chairs watching the water taxi's and other boats come and go. The kitchen area was well stocked to cook simple meals and the bed was so comfortable with a foam topper and soft quilt. We also enjoyed the extra deep soaking tub. The concierge who checked us in gave us a whirlwind narrative about the unit and the surrounding area, with bits of history mixed in. It proved to be very helpful the next few days as we made our way around the neighborhood.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Great condo in the heart of the old town of Victoria, steps from restaurants and shops, convenient parking within the building, drop dead views of the waterway. The accommodations are top notch and your host, Francis, is friendly and available, if necessary. Check out the Canoe Pub across the street.

Very good position in the City of Victoria

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant! this condo made our holiday perfect. It definitely was by far the best accommodation we chose on this trip. The views, the location and comfort. From the welcome to the departure, it exceeded our expectations. It is very comfortable well equipped and the location to the sights is amazing.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect in every way. The photos don't do the view justice. We have already booked for next year. The kitchen was well equipped. The air conditioner came in useful one evening and worked well. We really just enjoyed Victoria from this delightful condo.
