  • Beautiful, convenient comfortable home base!

    "Location was 5 star! Easy, beautiful walk to downtown Victoria & Wharf. We had the vacation of a lifetime with our family. The house accommodated our extended fam of 8 comfortably & Femke was beyond kind & easy to work with!"

  • Loved the location

    "My husband and I recently spent 6 nights in the 12th floor condo in Astoria Building. The location was fantastic very close to many restaurants and the inner harbour. As mentioned by others this is a very secure place and lovely grounds; we used the parkade for a few days but did not need a car the whole time because of close walking distance to sites. We liked the idea of breakfasts and lunches in the condo and mostly went out for dinner as there are so many great eating places. Also enjoyed the balcony for sipping wine and enjoying the views. Bartholemew's British pub next door had good food and we attended one evening to hear a band playing classic rock tunes, nice to have live entertainment nearby. Others we liked were Nautical Nellie's, Red Fish, Blue Fish and Catalona. Janet, our host met us as planned and was very thorough ensuring we had a good tour of the premises. Would love to stay here again sometime in the future."

  • Beautiful secluded hideaway

    "This gorgeous suite is Paradise. It not only comes fully equipped with everything you might need it is also decorated with Elissa's beautiful original and stunning paintings. Nestled in a charming neighborhood...It is also just a short walk to the beach. She is a lovely host who will ensure that your stay is pleasant. I look forward to staying next year."

  • Truly a home away from home.

    "We just returned from a 6 night stay at the Mermaid Condo. As others have mentioned, Maureen meets you with a smile and will give you the info on the condo and any other questions you might have. The location is second to none, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go except Butchart Gardens. (Which the #75 bus will take you to or, if it's a Saturday, take the CVS tour late to take in the free concert & fireworks with a guaranteed late ride back home. You won't be disappointed.) The condo does get warm but if you pull down the blinds in the afternoon, open the windows & put the fan in the doorway you're golden. Someone had complained about the bed in a previous post & I'll be honest that I was a bit concerned, as I would be the one next to the wall, but the bed is very comfortable & was not an issue at all. We ate in all but one breakfast, unfortunately we didn't get to try "Jam" as there was a line all the way down the street. We did find "Nautical Nellies" to be the perfect last night dinner with good seafood & a great view. There is a market up Yates street which had everything we could want (and more) to have our own feasts at the condo after a long day of playing, while looking out at the harbor. If you cross the bridge & head to the left you'll find a wonderful walking/running path along the bay that makes for a perfect morning run (at first you'll be in front of the big resort but stick along the waterway and there is an entrance to a trail by the Spinnaker Restaurant that is wonderful). If you go across the bridge & go right you'll hit the Galloping Goose Rails to Trails bike path and can bike for hours. What an impressive bike system they have with water & bathrooms along the way. There are also a few cafes & coffee shops just off the trail. Can you tell we were busy & happy? Lastly, I have to commend the designers of this condo. We've lived in very small confines so I make note of design of such places. This condo is designed in such a way, that while it's small, it doesn't feel like it. There is so much storage with cubbies, drawers and closets that a traveler could never fill it & a single person living there would be more than comfortable. The sound proofing is great, we never heard a peep except one bang against the wall on our last evening. Overall, Maureen's Mermaid Condo is a clean, quiet, convenient, gem in the heart of a noisy tourist area that we recommend highly!!! Thank you Maureen"
