The Neighbourhood

Close to everything-in the heritage side of town. Canoe Brew pub is right next door! Water taxi within steps. Walking score is 98/100.

About Julie Sullivan

My husband and I are longtime Victoria residents, having made our way west from the snowy central part of Canada....We are industrial hygienists by profession, which means we try to keep workers safe from hazards such as asbestos and lead etc etc. It is fun and challenging work!

We are looking forward to being able to travel more and get to see all the wonderful places our guests tell us about!

Julie Sullivan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Julie Sullivan chose Victoria

When we retire, we plan to live here part time-it cannot be beat for conveniences and comfort. South facing we get the sun and never even need to turn on the heat-even in January, although the fireplace is cozy!

What makes this condo unique

concrete, very secure, great roof top deck!

Great location with all we needed

  • 4 of 5

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at Julie's Victoria apartment last week for a night. Julie and Taylor made everything so simple (booking, info, check in and check out). Easy to get to and secure underground parking were great. Amazing location - we walked the whole city and left our car parked. Great food and shopping nearby and all the important sites within walking distance. The place was cozy and clean and well stocked. Having laundry facilities is a nice bonus. We really enjoyed spending late afternoon with a glass of wine on the rooftop patio.

Wonderful location for exploring Victoria

  • 4 of 5

Nice little spot with a great location for exploring Victoria. We walked about 12km everyday. Lots of great pubs with local micro brews. Garricks Head Pub was a favorite. 50 different beer on tap and all meals were great. Only disappointment with the condo was BBQ is not available at this time of year. Full kitchen and laundry were nice to have. Definitely worth a return visit to check out more of the island.

Our favourite accommodation of our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Mermaid Wharf building. The suite was clean, spacious and very comfortable. It was quiet and very secure. The location of this suite was perfect for our purposes - tourists!

Very clean, cute and great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in Victoria, with this condo being within a few minutes of walking to the main harbour area. It was very clean, and the person who met us to give us the keys and walk us through what we needed to know was very helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend staying there, more ideally for two people than the 4 of us that did stay, as the second couple slept on a couch/bed which wasn't quite as comfortable, but still okay. The weather was very hot out, so a little more AC would have been a welcome addition, but we managed okay with their fans. Very lovely overall! We biked into Victoria from the ferry and this location was only a couple of minutes from where the Lochside trail connected to the Johnston Street Bridge. We locked up our bikes in their underground parkade and it all worked out well.

Harbor Haven

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well designed and light filled condo,

wish we could have stayed more than 1 night!

Had a very good meal just steps away at Canoe Brew Pub and just enjoyed walking through the neighborhood. Our stay included 2 adults and 1 teen and was centered around visiting University of Victoria. Thanks to Julie and Tayler for the super service!

We hope to return one day and stay longer at your very comfortable refuge.

Clean & comfortable condo in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent the night for an event right next door at Canoe Club, so it was the perfect location for us to stay for the night. The condo was clean, modern & comfortable, and we were also able to enjoy some sunshine on the rooftop patio before we headed out for the evening. Overall a perfect alternative to a hotel and Julie was very friendly and professional.
