Overview

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

The Patio Suite in Sidney is a delightful space to be in. We found it comfortable, relaxing and a welcome home at the end of the day. The suite came complete with everything we needed, including a killer coffee machine! All of the amenities were modern and in excellent condition. And yes, the namesake patio was cool and peaceful with a beautiful small garden. It was so easy to walk and bike from, and access to all that the town of Sidney has to offer couldn’t be more convenient. Susan and Don were charming, unobtrusive hosts.

We were fortunate to stay in the Patio Suite for an entire month; we liked it so much we booked for another month this year.

This is no April fools!

I almost hesitate to tell you how great it is to stay at Don and Susan's place because it will be 100% booked in no time!! ( just kidding!). We are so pleased every time we stay there because of the location, the cleanliness and they way the place it outfitted. Having a top drawer coffer maker, we got spoiled by having espresso and cappuccino almost every morning. Add a two block walk to the wonderful Sidney bakery and you have it made! So handy to grocery stores and if you want to head into Victoria, just hop the bus ( be sure and take the 70X and sit up top for some awesome scenery!) Have $2.50 for exact fare and you are good to go! From comfortable linen's and towels to a wonderful king sized bed.. it was a great place to stay while visiting family in the area!

Thank you Don and Susan, we will be back "soon"!!

lovely patio suite!

  • 5 of 5

Once again the patio suite was very welcoming with flowers, chocolate, & wine ! It does not get any better than that!! The T.V. is wonderful -great picture & enough sports channels for Derwyn's hockey games. The grab bar on the tub works just fine for me -thank you for that. Whoever does your cleaning for you should be commended-the unit was spotless. Now if the sun would just shine!! But what the heck there are flowers & green grass-so much nicer than snow & ice!!

Lovely suite for a get-away in the beautiful seaside town of Sidney.

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic suite was just perfect for the 2 of us each needing our own bed. We had everything we could need to make our stay easy, comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are very nicely decorated and outfitted to meet every need. Parking off street was included.

The suite's close proximity to main street, town and ocean front made walking everywhere a pleasure. Sidney is a wonderful little town full of interesting shops, restaurants, cute architecture and beautiful scenery.

Perfect Sydney by the Sea vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental property. Everything is immaculate and comfortable. Walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants,shopping, sightseeing and seaside walks. Espresso machine!

Small unit perfect for a couple with a pullout if needed. We stayed five weeks and would book again no question. We have used VRBO a lot and this was the best rental we have had.

I have passed the info to friends. Very nice neighbors and property owner attentive to details and helpful.

Visiting friends in Sidney, B.C.

  • 5 of 5

The location of this lovely apartment was just perfect for us, when visiting our friends in Sidney. The apartment is very well kept, and comfortable. We also appreciated the laundry and BBQ. I do think of our stay often, and would be more than happy to stay at this apartment again in Sidney. Thank you so much Susan and Don for your kindness.
