About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
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.

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.
Owner's cancellation policy:
Policy available by contacting owner when booking
