Harbourside rental at Mermaid Suites

This rental exceeded our expectations. It was perfect and bigger than
advertised as a studio. The picture windows and Juliet balcony provided
memorable sceneries from dawn til dusk.

Our wonderful host and hostess, Steve and Trish, went above and beyond to
ensure we had the best accomodations during our stay -- they even went out
of their way to pick us up at the bus station after so many erratic changes
in our schedule. What a relief it was for us to have such a warm welcome and
assistance with our luggages especially after a 4-hr ferry/bus commute from
Vancouver to Victoria.

The rental has a plethora of information for activities. Our favorites
included: Butchart and Butterfly Gardens, the Hippo Bus, Parliament and
Empress (free), Beacon Hill Park...we took a 3-day rendezvous to Seattle, WA
via the Clipper...and the list activities (that don't require a personal
car) goes on and on.

There are also lots of restaurants to eat nearby (including the Canoe Club
across the street, which had wonderful live music playing from Thursday to
Saturday night. Some days were great for lazing inside - full kitchen
provides alternate opportunities to practice our culinary skills (heh heh).

We hated to leave. Can't wait to return -- and when we do, we're definitely
calling Steve and Trish at Citylife Suites.

We Hated To Leave-Can’t Wait To Return

We enjoyed our holiday in Victoria and area, it is a very beautiful city with great walking along the harbour.

Our condo, the City Harbourside Suite in the Mermaid Wharf building was very nice, clean and very well equipped with everything you need and was exactly as described in the listing.

The condo is in walking distance from restaurants and shopping and has a great view of the upper working harbour, there is always something to see. The Canoe Club below has a good menu and great beer.

Steve and Trish were great hosts and informed us about the condo and the areas attractions. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Exactly As Described-Would Definitely Recommend This Condo

I was fortunate enough to spend 3.5 months in Victoria. During the time, I chose to rent 3 different vacation rentals. Although each of them were fantastic (for different reasons) and all property managers were top notch.......Steve and Trish from City Life Suites were the perfect hosts!

Upon settling in, I discovered that they had left a fresh loaf of bread, cream, coffee/tea and some fresh fruit to welcome me. Such a thoughtful gesture especially for guests who would arrive late. They could at least wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee and breakfast before starting their Victoria adventure.

Steve and Trish were only ever a phone call away if I needed any questions answered or any assistance. I mentioned to Steve that I was excited to BBQ and he delivered a fresh tank of propane the next morning. I could seriously go on an on regarding Steve and Trish, but I will simply say.....they started as my vacation rental hosts and now I am honoured to call them my friends. CLASS ACT!

As mentioned, this was my 3rd vacation rental this year and the unit itself is beautifully furnished and decorate. It was "stocked" the best out of the 3. I entertain a lot, so it was nice to have all the extra's (napkins, placemats, wine glasses, matching dinnerware and even champagne flutes) provided. I would highly highly recommend City Life Suites for your next vacation!

Big thank you Steve and Trish! I will remain in touch!

Steve And Trish Were The Perfect Hosts

We just spent another fabulous two months in the Metro Suite; this is our 6th year staying with Steve and Trish and City Life Suites. They are so warm and friendly and treat us like family.

The high quality standard they have set for their rentals have kept us coming back and every year they impress us with upgrades to the accommodation. The Metro Suite has truly become our
home away from home and we look forward to our winter vacation in the most walkable city in Canada.

Every day is an adventure exploring the downtown area, the harbour and the beautiful Beacon Hill Park. The location of the Astoria building is so convenient to a wide assortment of restaurants and
