About Susan Wakal

When we are not out beaching it, you'll find us in our framing studio and workshop in Sidney (Picture Panache Framing), which we own and operate in addition to caring for our 4 vacation rental homes (all located in Sidney and surrounding area).

When we travel ourselves, we love to visit artist studios and collect artwork. If you happen to be a like-minded art lover, then do be sure to let us know, as there are tons of amazing artists to visit while you are on Vancouver Island. We'd love to connect you with a few!

Of course, no matter what your interests, we're happy to provide whatever help you need to plan YOUR perfect trip.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Susan Wakal purchased this condo in 2007

Why Susan Wakal chose Sidney

In 2007, our Mom and Dad purchased a quarter share (one week per month) in this studio suite in Miraloma on the Cove, a luxury waterfront rental vacation residence, nestled on 1.5 acres of protected heritage gardens. But, after a few short visits they discovered that a week was never enough!

Thus as a family, we set about negotiating to purchase the other 3 quarters, giving us full ownership of the suite and thus complete flexibility in booking stays of any length. Once you've been once, you'll want to stay longer next time! No problem!

Today, this suite, which was formerly operated as part of Bellstar Resorts high-end offerings, is offered 'By Owner', allowing a luxury stay at a fraction of the cost you would expect.

Our policy is first come, first serve, so don't delay or the dates you want may not be available.

We look forward to greeting you!

Susan & Don

What makes this condo unique

Location! Location! Location!

Or should I say, View! View! View!

From your room and from your balcony you are looking out on the ocean channel where boats enter and exit Tsehum Harbour with its many marinas and yacht clubs. So the scenery is fascinating and ever changing. Not close enough for you to hear any sound from the boats, just lovely silent vistas. Glistening water, boats and sunsets! What a heavenly combination. Glorious in the bright sunshine, mysterious in the mist and new everyday!

Inside the suite is roomy and elegantly appointed.

You really will love the views, the suite, the grounds and all of the amazing activities available in the surrounding area.

Take care or you'll be asking me for a referral to a good real estate agent and next thing, you'll be moving here!

It happened to us. It could happen to you.You won't want to leave.

Happy Planning! Email us now. Susan & Don

What a lovely, quiet suite. Just perfect for short or long stays all year round.

The view is gorgeous! It changes from minute to minute and never gets boring. I loved watching the sailboats, powerboats and fishing boats coming and going from the harbor even in rainy weather.

This suite really is fully equipped with all the amenities of home. I stayed in this suite over the late fall and winter season and found it very convenient. The kitchenette was fully stocked with all the essential utensils and even spices for light meals! The bathroom contains a large tub and a glassed-in shower, robes and plenty of towels …. and a heated floor! Along with the hi-def tv, wi-fi, indoor parking, and hot tub a single person or couple would require nothing else for a quiet, comfortable vacation stay in beautiful Sidney-By-the-Sea.

The Miraloma condo complex is located at the end of a quiet street. Within two blocks is the excellent harbor side Sea Glass Grill for dining out, a light lunch diner and a convenience store. The main street of Sidney is just a good 15 minute walk away.

I enjoyed the suite a lot and will return for sure.

Quiet, sparkling clean and luxurious

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in August. The property is exceptionally quiet, feels brand-new and is of very high quality inside and out. The "suite" (feels like a large hotel room with some small kitchen appliances on one wall and a large, luxurious bathroom) is lovely, with a very comfortable king bed and furniture for relaxing. Everything was sparkling clean and tastefully decorated with unexpected amenities such as a spotting scope on a tripod for watching wildlife out in the harbor. The view from the room and the deck of the water is wonderful. We watched seals playing in front of the condo every evening at sunset. There is a sweet little cover deck outside, perfect for enjoying coffee while you watch the boats coming and going. Note that there is no access to the water in front of the condo. But there are a couple of public parks on the water nearby that you can drive to. All in all, we highly recommend this place, especially if you are an individual or a couple looking for a quiet retreat.

Owner's Response: You just gave me a good idea. Will add a page to our manual, with a map to the beach accesses which are within walking distance. Sorry, you missed some of those! Next time.

Satisfied renters on the move

We rented this unit while we were moving to Sidney. It is well equipped and very clean and comfortable. It has a great view too. I would recommend it to others who need temporary accommodation during a move or during renovations. Friendly owners with attention to every detail. Beautiful building!

Owner's Response: If you have a gap between homes ... this works! It's compact size makes it economical, while still being a lovely place to rest your move-weary head! Your movers will be able to store your belongings ... in the meantime, you take a little mini breather, before taking possession of your own home or while supervising your pre-occupancy renovations. We love greeting newcomers to the Sidney/North Saanich area and welcoming them as our new neighbours. Call and experience the warm welcome of our Studio Suite!

Great location and lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Miraloma at the Cove. Upon our arrival, we were treated to a thoughtful basket of goodies. What a sweet treat!

The suite itself was beautifully furnished and had all the amenities we needed (fridge, simple kitchen gadgets etc). The location of the suite is perfect as it is walking or a very short car ride to the pier in Sidney where many stores and restaurants are located. The proximity of the suite made it a quick and direct drive to Victoria for our day trips.

During our evening, we felt very comfortable spending our time relaxing in this suite. We spent many a morning sitting on the balcony watching the boats while enjoying our coffee!

We definitely felt like this was a home away from home! We had a great experience working with Susan and Don and can't wait to return one day!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your little welcome surprise. From one year to the next we like to change things up, so our repeat guests are always wondering. Two years ago, it was a local red wine & the most adorable and yummy mini cupcakes from Oh La La Cupcakes, here in Sidney. Last year we went with locally roasted coffee beans (yes there is a coffee grinder in the suite) paired with a selection of Biscotti, also made right her in Sidney by Melinda's Biscotti. Are you wondering what your welcome might be? Of course, everyone gets fresh flowers. That goes without saying!

Room with a View!

This is a beautiful studio apartment with a lovely water view. Peaceful, close to an excellent restaurant. Small but cozy. Good for a week or two stay, as it is a studio. Beautiful garden grounds, close to Sydney, a lovely escape.

Owner's Response: Largest of the studio suites in this complex and with so many lovely common areas available, this suite is great value if you are planning on being 'out and about' either exploring or perhaps renovating your own home and need a comfortable, economical, and altogether pleasant, home away from home to crash at the end of your day. ( In fact, it's so nice, that once in a while when we have a gap in bookings, we invite friends over and have OUR own happy hour here! )

Nice place to run to away from snow

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Sidney, the people are so friendly, Highlands made the best fish and chips. Parking underground and taking the elevator straight up to our room was wonderful. Watching the sailboats fishing boats from our window and balcony was delightful and so picturesque. The owners were very helpful. Yes, we will go back.

Owner's Response: So glad that the accessibility of this suite, made possible your much needed two weeks reprieve from snow! Greenery and blossoms in March/April are such a treat. Delighted also, to hear that you were pleased with our concierge who met you, so our being out of town was not a problem. He's such a right hand man on the ground for us!
