Highly Recommend!

Fantastic location right on the water and within walking distance to all of downtown. Kitchen is well stocked and we really enjoyed the espresso machine. Loft is very clean and beautifully decorated. Underground parking was a nice bonus. The owner was very prompt on getting back to us, and the manager was on time to meet us and show us all the features of the loft. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Victoria.

Best VRBO Stay Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous place!! Our stay was absolutely perfect!!

The location was wonderful ... easy access to everything!!

The hospitaliity was amazing. We really appreciated the goodies left in the fridge ... and I enjoyed fixing breakfast both mornings we were there!! We were able to sleep in and just relax. Even the rain did not dampen our visit!!

LOVED the showerhead and seat in the master bath!!

All the glass allowed us to enjoy the view, even from our bed.

The outdoor seating area was nice too!!

Our only regret ... that we could not stay longer!!

Thank you so much for sharing your home!!

We just spent 9 days at Kal's place. What can I say about the Mermaid Loft that hasn't already been said! Amazing, beautiful, fantastic, wonderful etc! It has a lovely patio and garden facing the water, great little bbq. Interior is ultra modern. The building is really quiet, nothing disturbs your good night's sleep! There is nothing a person could want for while staying at the Mermaid Loft! It's close to everything! Kal got back to me prior to booking very quickly and his mom Frances is an angel here on earth. When we got there she had purchased cream for our coffee, butter and even a few snacks. I have used VRBO many times before but never have I had a condo where everything supplied even spices! There are just so many good things to say about the condo and the family! We will return for sure in the future but hopefully next time for a much longer stay! Thank you so much!

Enjoying Victoria

  • 4 of 5

We just spent the long week end in this beautiful loft. Absolutely perfect location, wonderful patio, clean and spacious accommodations. Frances contacted us prior to our arrival and was there to welcome us - even provided milk/cream and snacks, so we were set for our morning coffee!

Thank you for a stress free booking.
