Eyes on Victoria Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well equipped condo in an advantageous area of Victoria. Walkable to restaurants, shops and groceries. If you don't feel like walking, hop on a water taxi within yards of the building. Great view of the harbor to watch ships, rowers, float planes and the rest of the cities activities.

Fabulous place to stay for your visit to Victoria

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this penthouse on Mermaid Warf! ;)

To start, Alex was fabulous to work with in terms of booking and getting checked in. He met us at the location, walked us to the parking space, and walked us through the apartment and roof top deck area to make sure we knew where everything was. If you're like us, you really want to check out the private roof top deck space. We spent some time there every evening with drinks, enjoying the boats, and people watching.

The condo itself was very clean and well appointed. The full bank of windows was awesome and we spent a couple of nights just eating at the table and watching the boats and folks below. Even if you don't check out the roof top deck the view from the apartment is also very nice! In the mornings you can watch the boats paddling crew right below the window.

It's very well located and we spent a lot of time just walking around the area. One day we walked to the Parliament buildings which were 10 minutes away, from there we walked to Beacon Hill and then followed the waterfront path down to the Ogden break water. We then walked to the Blue Crab Restaurant and from there caught one of the little water ferry/water taxis back to Mermaid Warf. Another day, we took the water ferry/taxi right out front all the way out to West Bay Marina (Esquimalt) and then walked the Songhee's trail along the waterfront back to the Johnson bridge which we crossed to get home. Victoria lends itself to walking and enjoying the outdoors and this location lends itself to walking! ;)

There are several restaurants right out the front door and Alex had some really good recommendations in his book (check out Foo for take out - you will not be disappointed!) The TV was easy to stream netflix, wifi worked great, water pressure fabulous, kitchen well stocked . . . .You can also rent kayaks or canoes at the dock out front if you choose.

All in all it's a fabulous unit and made for a terrific trip! ;)

We look forward to another visit some day!

Wonderful view, comfortable space, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thought this was the perfect spot for our 6 night stay in Victoria. The condo is lovely, and the view of the harbor was fascinating. We loved watching all the water activity - rowers, taxis, working vessels - and the opening and closing of the new bridge. The private patio was a great getaway, wonderful for reading and sipping wine. All this, and it's just a few minutes walk to central downtown. Alex was a great host, and came to our rescue right away when we had a wifi connection problem. I've already recommended this vacation haven to a friend who's making travel plans. It's a five star winner!

Truth in advertising!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse was everything it was advertised to be. Super clean, just enough comfortable furnishings, tastefully decorated, nice view of the harbour and central to so many places to eat and things to do. We had a great time using it as our base of operations. We traveled to BC in a vehicle so the free parking was a great plus for us. The food in Victoria was outstanding. We didn't have a bad bite our entire stay and one of the better places to eat (Fishhook) is in the same building so it's just an elevator ride away. We even saw some sea otters from the balcony. We highly recommend.
