WATERFRONT CONDO ON THE HARBOUR IN DOWNTOWN VICTORIA

This trendy downtown condo at Mermaid Wharf has an up-market feel which is contemporary yet warm and cozy. It is an open-plan studio style with bedroom alcove containing a queen size bed. The sofa is a custom-made, convertible double bed of commercial grade ensuring comfort. There is a full, well-equipped kitchen, gas fireplace, wall-mounted flat screen 40” TV, a computer with high-speed internet plus free WiFi. Taking care of laundry while you're travelling is easy here with the in-suite washer/dryer.

This place is kept in immaculate condition, attested to in the many reviews. The bedding is luxe, top quality 100% cotton in keeping with a high standard. The artwork is local, original and interesting.

The location is great - on the harbour, close to the downtown area and an easy walk to many of our attractions and excellent restaurants. The downtown location encompasses not only the excitement and convenience of being close in, but also the inevitable noise and bustle of an urban environment.

The living room views are of paddlers, rowers and the life that generally makes up the harbour, plus glorious sunsets over the water. Catch stunning views of the harbour and waterways from the rooftop patio which also has BBQ facilities.

There is convenient kayak hire at our own wharf, also kayak/canoe hire is available a block away at Ocean River Sports. Bike rentals available two blocks away.

The dock is also a stop for the little harbour ferries – pick them up at many spots along the seawalks around the harbour. The condo is a short walk from the inner harbour, Empress Hotel, museums and Legislative Buildings. Chinatown with its restaurants and markets is two minutes away. Golf? Lots...from spectacular Bear Mountain designed by Jack and Steve Nicklaus, to smaller, inexpensive courses and many in-between. Victoria is extremely cyclist-friendly with many dedicated lanes - for venturing out-of-town or for more of a workout, check out the Galloping Goose trails which are accessed near the condo.

Everything is here for a wonderful and affordable vacation.

NOTES: There is a currency converter at the top of the rates page, right hand side, it's very small so you have to really look for it.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE that VRBO now charges a service fee payable by guests on each booking. I have always endeavoured to keep my rates affordable and in answer to this new fee, I am removing the cleaning fee which more than offsets the service fee. My rate is all-inclusive - secure underground parking, internet (there is also a computer), WiFi, all taxes and the cleaning fee.

Thanksgiving! and we're thankful that M introduced us. What a charming pied-a-terre you have created. You have thought of everything to make us feel at home. Great location, great bed! every time we looked for something it was there in its place...we will return.

Amazing property. Amazing location. Amazing New Years Eve.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with the location, the property or the service. Look no further if you want a well-cared for location near downtown and right on the water. Close to good restaurants, pubs, nightlife and the New Years Eve celebrations were only a 15 minute walk away. The fireworks lit up the night sky across the harbour. Fantastic!

Excellent communications in preparation for arrival and to meet us upon arrival. Condo is located close to all amenities. No need to use our car. Great view of the Upper Harbour from our window. Condo had all facilities. We will return.

A beautiful apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well equipped apartment just as the photos show. 3 adults stayed here comfortably for a week. Maureen was very helpful and communication was fantastic. We stayed during a very cold spell of weather and the apartment was very warm. Ideal location close to everything in Victoria. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip to Victoria and couldn't have been more pleased with this property. This was our first time using VRBO and our first trip to Victoria and all of it was perfect! Maureen was easy to communicate with and quick to reply to inquiries about availability. She reached out right before our trip to ensure she knew when we'd be arriving and was there to greet us, show us around and give some local recommendations. The property was beautiful, had everything we needed and was walking distance to everything we wanted to do and see (with the exception of Butchart Garden). We drove up from Oregon so the secure/free/underground parking was a huge plus. We were lucky enough to be in Victoria when it snowed---absolutely stunning! We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and would stay here again on future trips. Thanks for the stay Maureen!

The apartment is a perfect place to stay while enjoying the city. The location is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cozy apartment. The underground parking stall is a definite bonus. Maureen met us upon arrival and viewed and explained everything we needed to know about the apartment. She also has created an information package that is very helpful. The location couldn't be better. We had a fabulous weekend and a great stay. We would absolutely stay here again upon returning to the city.

Great location, welcoming host, comfortable and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Maureen's condo is In a great location. It is right on the water and within walking distance of everything you could want downtown. It is a short block to get to Victoria's historic Chinatown, great shops and fantastic restaurants. The condo itself was very clean and comfortable with a well appointed kitchen, comfortable bed and sofa bed. Maureen very graciously meet us at the door and gave a quick, yet thourough orientation of the property and overview of the neighborhood. The only small downside of this property was that is was quite warm and we needed to keep the windows open at night to regulate the temperature better.

I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Victoria.

Additional information about rental rates

NOTE: There is a currency converter at the top of the rates page, right hand side, it's very small so you have to really look for it.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE that VRBO has recently implemented a service fee payable by guests on each booking. I have always endeavoured to keep my rates affordable and in answer to this new fee, I am removing the cleaning fee - a significant benefit as it is more than the service fee on a four-night booking so the result is an overall reduction in the daily rate. My rate is all-inclusive - secure underground parking, internet (there is also a computer), WiFi, all taxes and the cleaning fee.

Fees include two persons; each additional person is $20/day

Cancellation policy: 75% of the deposit refunded if notice of cancellation is provided before 30 days of the date of arrival.
