FRESH, COMTEMPORARY 1 BEDROOM SUITE WITH PRIVATE GARDEN OASIS!

Sidney Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This Patio Suite is a self-contained, first class, furnished, rental accommodation. The 600 sq. ft., one bedroom, one bathroom, ground level suite is located in scenic Sidney by the Sea, close to all amenities and a short drive to Butchart Gardens and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Very easy access from Victoria International Airport, BC Tsawwassen/Swartz Bay Ferry, Washington State /Anacortes Ferry. 20 minute drive from Victoria (Black Ball Ferry from Port Angeles, US).

The suite is fresh, bright, comfortable and professionally decorated. The deluxe king canopy bed will ensure a relaxing sleep and you'll wake refreshed with a picture window view to your private garden oasis. The entire unit has ceramic tile with underfloor radiant heating. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer.

Get your own groceries and cook in your full kitchen facilities (includes espresso machine, fridge, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, small appliances, enough dishes for you and guests).

Or to heck with cooking and decide to treat yourself by walking to one of the many fabulous restaurants.

The living area is so very comfy for kicking back. Cherish some alone time reading on the chaise lounge, snuggle with your sweetie on the huge sectional or enjoy your favourite media in the entertainment system (Cable TV, DVD, AM/FM, CD, I Pod Dock, and library of CD's, DVD's, books and games).

Patio doors open from the living room to the private, professionally landscaped, well maintained backyard with a lovely unistone patio, year round greenery, barbecue, cushioned patio furniture, shade umbrella. Sunny mornings, shady afternoons, you'll not want to leave! Except for your walks along the seawall and poking through the unique seaside shops.

Breath in deeply and enjoy the moist freshness of the ocean air. Anticipate many days exploring quaint Sidney by the Sea. Walk to everything. Enjoy Starbucks, Sidney's many used bookstores, unique clothing stores, galleries, world class spas, or plan a great outdoor adventure. Sidney is also well situated for day trips to the Gulf Islands, spending time at Butchart Gardens, Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, visiting world famous Victoria Inner Harbour with all the street performers and so much more. You name it, it's at your beck and call.

So whether you're looking for a one week getaway in the summer or a whole winter escape from the snow, we think you'll be glad you chose the Patio Suite.

Hope to hear from you soon. Owners, Susan and Don

About Susan Wakal

Hi! We're Susan & Don Wakal,

We own the Patio Suite. Our other business, Picture Panache Framing, occupies the small commercial cottage to the front of the same property. When first setting up the framing studio we chose to live in the Patio Suite ourselves for a year. In many ways we found it just the right size. Everything in it's place means so little cleaning. That leaves more time for exploring Sidney's many used bookstores, galleries, unique boutiques, walking the beach, eating out in great restaurants and just enjoying all that Sidney has to offer. In this photo we've taken our lawn chairs down to the waterfront park to enjoy the view, meet friendly people and listen to music which plays at the Bandstand each Sunday afternoon in the summer. Isn't life great?

Can't wait to greet you. Susan & Don

Susan Wakal purchased this condo in 2007

Why Susan Wakal chose Sidney

We relocated from Edmonton to Vancouver Island in February of 2005. All of our friends said we were going to hate it here. It was going to be rainy and overcast and we'd be depressed. Well, NOT! So climate is the first reason to love this location. Lush, green and moist even in the winter, your skin feels better, your hair feels better, you feel better. Then come summer you'll be almost intoxicated by the fragrance, colour and glorious sun. It just doesn't get any better than this. Our first year here we lost count after 55 people came to visit. Needless to say, not everyone is free to move here, but everyone deserves a little island time. We hope this vacation rental suite will allow you to treat YOURSELF to some Island time.

Come and enjoy! Susan and Don

Now why Sidney specifically? You know this is really just the nicest town. It is so friendly and the main street, Beacon Ave. is packed so full of unique shops that even for those of us who live here feel like every day is a holiday. Did you know that in our Star Cinema movie theater a real live person comes down the aisle to announce the coming movies. It's the little things like this that are small, seaside town, fun! Then of course there are the beaches. Nothing soothes the soul like the sound of waves. While here you could walk a different one each day of your stay! Need more reasons yet ... well people come from all over the world to see the Butchart Gardens, Victoria Inner Harbour, Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre.

We love to play host and unlock all the insider secrets Sidney has to share. Please come and experience it yourself. You may never leave! That's happened before! In which case, we're also happy to introduce you to all of the people you'll need to meet, in order to get yourself moved here permanently!

Whether you are planning a week or a year, we'd love to hear from you soon. Thankyou for choosing to stay in our Patio Suite.

Cheers! Owners, Susan and Don Wakal

What makes this condo unique

We'd love it if you chose to stay at the Patio Suite. We want you to enjoy the home like it's your own, minus the day-to-day stresses. To that end, we've tried to imagine every detail that might contribute to a special stay. Cozy housecoats, funny movies, a bowl of M & M's, fresh flowers, a welcome basket filled with a favorite wine and tasty local treats. When you stay here, you'll love the quiet evenings, wake refreshed, step out in the morning to the smell of ocean air and never run out of fun things to do. Come experience the joy of living in Canada's paradise.

Hope you'll plan a trip to stay with us soon.

Cheers! Owners, Susan & Don Wakal

An enjoyable winter holiday in Sidney B.C.

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in the patio suite very much. We were there for 2 months & have booked for the same 2 months next winter. It is very comfortable clean & the owners made us feel very welcome with flowers coffee& biscuits on the table when we arrived. It was so nice to be close to the seawall & walking distance to the downtown area & the many good restaurants in Sidney.Yes I would recommend this property to friends.

Owner's Response: Delighted that you have already booked your two months for next year. Return visitors are our ultimate compliment. Our suite is very comfortable for a long term stay and thus we have many returning 'snowbirds' who find walks on the seawall and year round greenery a little easier to take than the snow at home! I expect we missed that last star in your rating, due to some frustration with working the TV/Cable. Aren't remote controls the bain of everyone's existence these days? Since your departure we have replaced the cable box for a more updated version and hope you will find it much easier next year.

Everything you will want in a place to stay in Sidney BC

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the nicest little spots to stay if you are visiting Sidney, BC. Not only is it spotless, it has all the conveniences.. including an espresso maker! A washer and dryer sure come in handy if you have been travelling. We have family in the area but don't want to be "under foot" so we stay here and it is really lovely. We used the BBQ when our family came to visit and it was so nice not having to go to a restaurant! The bed is so comfy... with the salt air you could sleep for hours! Sue and Don are excellent hosts and are very accommodating as well. An easy walk to everything in the area. We will return again soon!

This property was perfect for us as we needed to rent somewhere close to our own home while we negotiated with contractors for future renovations. It is the perfect location for getting out and about in Sidney, with or without a car. Everything is so convenient, and the suite is lovely. We are back there again in September while we oversee more projects to our house, and are thrilled that it is available for the time we need it. Highly recommend it for anyone in our position needing somewhere to stay while renovations are underway, or for just a holiday vacation in beautiful Sidney.

Owner's Response: So glad that we were able to play a small part in easing your move back to Canada. Our suite has been a 'first home' for several guests who are now our new neighbours.

It's also a great little sanity saver, for anyone doing a major renovation on their own home, in the Sidney, North Saanich area. So lovely to not have to live alongside the contractor and trades, amid the dust, etc.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was as advertised, very clean and well maintained. Loved the fact that we could walk anywhere in Sidney, our sister and family lives close by so it was easy to visit back and forth. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Enjoyed Island Touring, wineries, scenic drives, etc.

Thank you Susan and Don, would love to stay again.

Owner's Response: Though the home sleeps 4, 1 couple to the bedroom and 1 couple on the fold-out (with air bladder for extra comfort) in the living room area, it's a rare two couples that wouldn't find the arrangement fairly close quarters. How nice that the four of you travel so well together! Usually the additional sleeping accommodates short visits from relatives and friends quite comfortably.

Great to have your own accommodation while visiting Sidney/Victoria relatives. Some time together and some time apart is always welcome. Nice also to be able to reciprocate & have guests in to your place for a meal now and then. Extra leaf available for the table & enough dishes for entertaining. Enjoy!

The Patio Suite

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent three months in the patio suite this past winter and enjoyed it very much. It was nice to be so close to the shopping area and also the good restaurants. My sister in law visited from Scotland and she thought the apartment was lovely..Being able to take the ferry to one of the islands and the bus to Victoria was very convenient . We would have no hesitation going back there again especially to escape the winter in Ottawa.

Owner's Response: Most of our guests do either drive or fly and rent a vehicle, in which case we do offer 'off street parking'. But, for those who decide to 'go green' without a vehicle, the suite is within a short walk of just about anything you could need ... groceries, beverages, pharmacy, banks, medical attention, restaurants, shops, attractions, lovely seaside walks. And as you mention busing also available. Glad this worked out so well for you this winter & that you were even able to reconnect with relatives from afar. That's why we put the fold-out sofa (with air bladder for more comfort than you'd expect in a fold-out). When we are in town, we are happy to do airport pick-ups and drop-offs. If we happen to be out of town, it's just a short cab trip.

Patio Suite

Thank you Susan and Don- we had a wonderful two weeks at the Patio Suite. The location is perfect. Within walking distance of the town centre, the Anacortes ferry, the seafront and minutes away from the airport and BC Ferry terminals. We took public transit from Sidney downtown to Victoria downtown. No parking hassles and bus stops in walking distance of the waterfront.

The patio suite is just as described - perfect! We are looking forward to returning.

PS Found 1 item left in the suite, so I've posted that in the mail to you.
