Condo, Studio , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

If this unit is booked we have two other condos in the building. This waterfront penthouse is located in the heart of downtown Victoria in the Mermaid building. On the waterfront of the harbour and the edge of the Gorge waterway, the Mermaid Building allows its guests to experience downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, the Gorge Waterway, the ocean, the upper part of the island and Vancouver, with ease.

Some of Victoria’s most popular restaurants surround the building, making it easy to have gourmet meals with out the worry of taxis or drinking and driving.

Take a Whale watching tour right outside the door. Or rent a kayak and glide through the harbour to the open ocean to discover the Pacific’s wild life. Or paddle up the Gorge waterway and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Salmon Fish with a charter or rent a power boat and just take it easy touring Victoria from the water’s perspective.

Just steps away, the harbour sea planes take passengers in a half hour flight to downtown Vancouver, offering great shopping on Robson street, Theatres, Stanley Park and more, and all in a day allowing one to return home for dinner.

The Mermaid neighbours Historic China Town with its many vegetable stores, restaurants and curio shops.

Romantic horse drawn carriages carry passengers through the inner harbour past the parliament buildings, the world famous Royal BC Museum, live entertainment, Underwater Sea Gardens, Omnimax Theatre, Miniature World, Double Decker sight seeing tours, and tour buses to the renowned Butchart Gardens.

Cycle, stroll, run, or even ride a horse on the picturesque Galloping Goose Trail. This multi-use trail, formerly a railway line, moves right beside the Mermaid Building, through urban, rural and wilderness scenery on its 55-kilometre journey from Victoria to Sooke. Whether you're commuting to work, meandering on a weekend afternoon or pacing yourself from Sidney to Sooke, the trail is yours to enjoy.

Catch the little Harbour Ferry stopping at the Mermaid and travel right up the Gorge waterway to Tillicum and down to the Empress.

The Suite sleeps two. There is a queen bed. Nothing has been spared in furnishing this space. It is fully equipped with a 32 inch flat screen Smart TV, stereo, DVD player, high speed Wifi internet and modem, microwave, dishwasher, stove, fridge, blender, toaster, coffee maker, washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom has a claw foot tub, separate shower and pedastall sink.

                                                              We had a great holiday and would come back any time. Fireplace was most enjoyable and appreciated. Next time we hope we could use the private patio up top.Small suggestion would be a coat tree to hang coats at the door. Thank you.

                                                              A wonderful relaxing location

                                                              We have now stayed at this location twice. Once five years ago, and now this past week. Victoria is a gem, and this apartment is wonderful. We enjoyed the location of the building as it is just on the outskirts of downtown - walkable to everything, yet extremely quiet. We specifically enjoyed the beautiful tub and large sectional couch. Having the option of parking was really nice, as well. Thanks for the wonderful place and service Jeanie. Hopefully we’ll see you and your lovely city sooner than five more years down the road.

                                                              We enjoyed our stay and the location. I agree with the other reviews that a new bed is needed. Quite noisy. The area was also noisy with bridge construction as well. That should be over soon. Francis was great in showing us around. Victoria was smoky when we were there so we did not uae the rooftop patio although it looks amazing.
