The Mermaid Suite
|Price:||$ 1,285 per week|
|Location:||Victoria, BC - Downtown|
This may be the Victoria vacation condo you have been looking for!
Hugging the harbours edge, this west facing luxuriously furnished rental offers up close views of the ever changing harbour activity below. As there is no road running in front of the building, the centre front position of this condo looks onto views of the waterway – undisturbed by downtown street activity or traffic noise. Here you can enjoy scenic peacefulness downtown because this suite at the Mermaid is truly a waterfront condo – not a distant water view condo!
Here, you will have instant access to downtown amenities and recreation immediately upon exiting the building. Although the Mermaid Suite is fully equipped for self-catering, there are many wonderful restaurants within a short walk. Enjoy the very popular Canoe Club Brew Pub, which is located directly across the road from the main entrance to our building!
A short stroll away are the many and varied shops of one of Victoria’s most famous shopping districts, Government Street! From popular stores such as The Gap, Eddie Bauer and W & J Wilson – to the world famous Rogers Chocolates that delivers to her majesty The Queen herself! Downtown Victoria is also home of the world famous Hudson’s Bay Company! Do you enjoy looking in antique stores? Auction houses? Then you won’t want to miss a stroll up Fort St! Other shopping excursions include Bastion Square, Trounce Alley which is almost totally hidden away… but well worth the visit! Do not miss Market Square and lower Johnson St stores, also known to Victoria natives as “LoJo”, and of course a visit to Victoria is not complete without a stroll through our China Town!
A leisurely 15 minute stroll along Victoria’s harbour brings you to the beautiful Inner Harbour. There you will find the iconic and Majestic Fairmont Empress Hotel. A trip to our city is not complete without having afternoon tea at this famous hotel! Also close by is the world renowned Royal BC Museum and the stately Parliament Buildings at night both buildings are lit up… making for a great photo opportunity!
Outdoor healthy living goes hand and hand with visiting Victoria, you can find kaya rentals on the pier just outside the buildings front door! Enjoy world class biking through the city or on the fabulous Galloping Goose Trail, a stroll through beautiful Beacon Hill Park or jump onto a Victoria Harbour Ferry that stops regularly outside of the Mermaid Wharf. These fun mini ferries are great boat taxi’s that toot around the harbour, Gorge waterway, Fisherman’s Wharf and more.
If you choose to venture further, take your car out of our dedicated underground parking space (or take downtown public transportation) and drive to the World Famous Butchart Gardens. For many, this is reason enough to come to Victoria, as you can spend many a restful hour exploring its charms – in all seasons of the year.
At day’s end, wherever your explorations have taken you, return to the Mermaid’s comfort. Your home away from home!
