We Hated To Leave-Can’t Wait To Return

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.
