About Patricia Suess

Retired and recently moved from Victoria to Denman Island, we spend our summer in BC and our winters in Mexico. Victoria, and specifically, the heritage downtown and the Inner Harbour are our favorite places to enjoy all that the beautiful city offers. We feel like we are on vacation each time we walk the exciting streets, enjoy the lively street scene and dine out at the numerous restaurants all within easy walking distance. Victoria's many festivals and lively cultural scene ensure that time spent is always fun.

Patricia Suess purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Patricia Suess chose Victoria

The smartly designed apartment, in the perfect location immediately reminded us of our travels to various countries where walkability, and living urban feels like just the right thing to do. We feel that the apartment allows us to be comfortable but yet gives us the ease to access everything we love about the downtown core.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely - everything you could need for a great stay in Victoria and the location can't be beat. It's right on the water, an easy walk to absolutely everything and right across the street from the Canoe Pub, which shouldn't be missed. There is an underground parking stall which is ideal - we parked our car and walked everywhere.

Perfect Victoria GetA-Way

  • 5 of 5

We just spent six weeks in Victoria at Trish's unit in the Mermaid Wharf. I have only good things to say. The posted pictures represent the unit well. The apartment is adorable, clean, well thought out, equipped with everything you might need. The bed was quite comfortable....a most important detail. And the location is awesome. We enjoyed hearing the sea gulls and the sea planes overhead. The peek-a-boo view of the harbour was lovely. China town is just across the street with its yummy restaurants and food markets. IT is just a quick walk to the Parliament Buildings, the Harbour, the Empress Hotel, parks, trails etc. We didn't rent a car but were able to walk everywhere. I used public transportation if I had to go somewhere a bit farther- like to Costco. The apartment is located a quick walk away from most buses. Dealing with Trish was easy. The manager, Colette met us when we first arrived to orient us to the unit and the building. Colette was a quick phone call or email away if we had any questions and always lovely to work with. We have already booked for next winter!!!!!!

Classy and Clean

  • 4 of 5

This was our first VRBO rental, so I do not have any previous experience to compare to. We are a couple in our early 30s and we just stayed for five nights. We found it to be very comfortable, clean, classy looking and thoughtfully set up. Shower was warm and pressured, bed was comfy. We did not hear any noise from the other condos. The building was very secure and we were never nervous walking to/from even in the evening. We did not have a car and found it to be comfortable to walk around downtown and along the harbour. We walked to Fisherman's Warf, on the other side of the harbour, in a leisurely 45 mins. We did not use it, but there is a handy harbour ferry stop nearby as well. We also cooked and found we had everything we needed for ourselves, and also to entertain another couple. Property manager Sue was really awesome. We would definitely stay here again!!! Just a couple things to be aware of though: bring a sleep mask if you need dark. The condo stayed fairly warm (was fairly warm for victoria at the time as well), which is a plus in my books, but there is no AC so may be minus for you if you need that. As a heads up, the bed only has enter/exit access from one side (was never an issue for us). Finally, we had all the windows open and did get noise from the street, a little in the early am and at night on the weekend. We found this to be pretty minor with earplugs. All in all we felt this was a great fit for us and we were very happy.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very honest and detailed review. I agree with you and am working on some room-darkening draperies to reduce the light and also the noise. The summer season is the busiest time in the area and at other times of year there is less street noise.
