About Adrian

We are a retired couple who still live in Sidney but have downsized. Eagles Nest is our family home that we have updated and equipped for visitors and visiting family to allow us to continue to share our wonderful piece of paradise. Our son, Adrian manages EaglesNest.

Adrian purchased this house in 1990

Why Adrian chose Sidney

We love this location for the water, the wildlife (it is on the migratory seabird pathway) the walks along the shore and into town, the nearby marinas and restaurants for a morning breakfast walk... it is one of the most sheltered low bank waterfronts in the area and perfect for kayaking, clamming and just soaking up birds and otters of Roberts Bay.

What makes this house unique

On Robert's Bay – Sidney B.C. Welcome to Eagle's Nest vacation rental. Welcome to pink sunrises silhouetting a distant snow capped Mount Baker and glinting off duck trails across the mirrored waters of Roberts Bay bird sanctuary. Watching colorful kayakers launching nearby to explore Gulf Islands National park. Amble along tree lined All Bay road to coffee shops, fine dining and pubs intermingled with the marinas and yacht charters. Walk a mile or so the other way to Sidney-Town with all its busy charm and pedestrian friendly activities. The Eagles Nest suite is the entire upper level (1500 sq ft) of this waterfront house. Living room with gas fireplace, sun room, three outdoor patios, two bedrooms (queen) and (double + twin), two bathrooms and a TV/media room. Two sofa beds are also available. The house is equipped to make you feel at home, including libraries of music, videos and books as well as board games. For those comfortable on the water, two sit-on-top kayaks are available to explore the sheltered bay. Binoculars and a telescope are provided those enjoying morning coffee in the sun room overlooking the bay or for gazing at the night skies. A spacious kitchen with attached patio allows for shared culinary productions and barbeque masters.

What an amazing locacation, beautiful property, home from home! We will definitely be booking again for next year if not before. Beautiful views of the bay and Mount Baker, was wonderful watching the seals playing across the bay on a morning, and the use of the kayaks was so much fun. The sun room was amazing to end a perfect day with a nice bottle of wine watching the lovely sunsets over the bay.
A very stunning and comfortable property with everything you need on your doorstep, a 15 minute walk to downtown and five minutes to lovely children's park , and a beautiful rose garden, very nice restaurants within walking distance. A nice collection of movies to watch, if you can rake your eyes away from the gorgeous views. I would highly recommend staying in Eagles Nest, 5 Star!!

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much for taking the time to add your thoughts. Yes Eaglesnest does have very fast and solid internet as well as the spectacular views walks... and yes, because we are looking out across the border to snow capped Mt Baker in Washington State the cell phone signals are kept weak to avoid border trangressions by the cell phone providers it seems...the signal is strongest in the sun room. I hope that the free internet phones in the house helped with keeping in touch with family and friends. We hope to see you again soon.

Peace by the Sea

  • 5 of 5
Eaglesnest is a wonderful well equipped house with great views of Robert's Bay. The location was perfect for walking into Sidney, kayaking in the bay or the short drive to Victoria. It is only ten minutes from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal and although the Airport is nearby we were not disturbed by aircraft noise. We went on an excellent Whale Watching Tour with Sidney Whale Watching, visited Butchart Gardens and attended the Victoria Symphony Splash Concert. Adrian met us on arrival to show us around the property and made us feel most welcome. We all had a wonderful time at Eaglesnest and would recommend the property if you want a peaceful, comfortable house with stunning views but plenty of exciting activities nearby.

The activities and recreational opportunites in the vicinity are simply too rich to list... at the top end of Ardwell Avenue across the Pat Bay highway there is a visitors information centre with information on wineries, equestrian farms, the galloping goose cycle path to Sooke and endless other opportunities.

There are dozens of restaurants in the area and just 5 minutes peaceful walk away there are two 5 sta restaurants up All Bay Road as well as a small bakery coffee shop.

The pedestrian friendly location of EaglesNest allows for family members to walk, ride, drive, bus or paddle as they like either together or independently.

Should you wish to travel to Victoria, the bus stops on Resthaven $2.50.. or to the ferry to Vancouver or the Gulf Islands for a day trip in the other direction.
