About Barbara

We have lived on the Saanich Peninsula Since 1999 and have recently moved to Sidney to experience it's many charms. Both Barb and Mike can help you find whatever you are looking for in the area and are always glad to share Sidney and the Saanich Pennisula's many attractions! This area is truely a wonderful treasure on the west coast.

We both have FRENCH as a second language and welcome the opportunity to practice speaking it whenever we can!

Barbara purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Barbara chose Sidney

We first relocated to Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island from Ottawa, ON in 1999 with the intention of giving our three boys a different living experience in another part of Canada. We’ve never turned back. The West Coast life style is the perfect fit for our family. As the boys grew up and started moving out, we decided to relocate from our suburban home in Brentwood to the vibrant small coastal town of Sidney. This wonderful friendly sea side town offers everything at your finger tips. We are truly enjoying the life style change and the absolute convenience this location provides us and for the many guests that we are hosting here at Sidney Mews. Let us share with you the many delightful attractions, Sidney, the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria have to offer. Come, stay and explore this slice of paradise that we have come to love. Like us, you’ll be glad you did! Barbara and Mike

What makes this townhome unique

We both enjoy the opportunity to speak FRENCH and enjoy practicing the second language whenever we get the chance with people we meet.

Lovely accommodation! Nicely furnished and very well equipped. Well located in Sidney for easy walking along the ocean front and very close to the main street in town. Barb was easily accessible and a pleasure to meet. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Lovely accommodation and very comfortable. Great number of items in the kitchen. Only issue was the noise from the fridge/freezer very noticeable in the night. Nice touches like flowers, fruit and croissants on arrival as well as milk. Great location as we love walking and could walk round Sidney very easily.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you both enjoyed your stay here with us and that you were able to visit with near by family. Sidney is indeed a very walkable town and we are so close to everything! Thank you for letting me know about the fridge noise. This is a Brand New Appliance and should not be having noise issues. I will be sure to have a service maintenance person in to look into the issue. It was lovely meeting you both and sharing in your many interests. Keep well and best wishes back home in Scotland, Barbara

Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is so spotlessly clean and has everything you could want for cooking big meals, right down to potato peeler. Set in a great location, close to the ocean and shops. Barb was so kind. We were treated to beautiful flowers to grace the kitchen table along with fresh fruit and croissants, coffee and cream. I would love to stay there again and would suggest this homes to anyone looking for a great vacation stay. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Your time spent with us seemed to have been full of enjoyment! It was great that you were able to see so much of your friends out here. Our suite has proven to be a great setting when looking to re-establish a new home in Sidney and the surrounding area. Many of our past guests now reside in Sidney and absolutely love their new locations. Hope you decide to make the move as well. It was wonderful getting to meet you both. Cheers! Barb

Sidney Mews

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sidney Mews was exceptional. The location was perfect for walking to the waterfront and to down-town Sydney. The basement suite was furnished beautifully and was very clean. The Queen Bed slept wonderfully and the kitchen had all the supplies a person needs. The hosts were very hospitable and the fresh flowers and "turtles" were a very nice touch. The only issue we had was hearing the foot traffic from upstairs during the hours of 6-9 pm. Other than this we highly recommend the Sydney Mews.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful that you enjoyed your stay. You had such great weather compared to back home! We are indeed in a great location. Thank you for your helpful input. At the end of the month, we are embarking on a major renovation and upgrade remodel of this ground level suite. We will be addressing and mitigating for sound transfer from our residence, as well as, adding many upgrades to the suite. This is for the enjoyment for all our future guests. We hope to see you again on a return visit so that you can enjoy the new amenities as you scout out Sidney for possible retirement options. Enjoy your other travels abroad. Bon Voyage! Barb and Mike.

Happy Resting

  • 5 of 5

I needed a quiet place to regroup after being widowed. This was the perfect spot. Very nice accommodations. I was greeted warmly, and found fruit, flowers and a bit of candy waiting for me. I was able to sit outdoors in a comfortable setting with a fountain bubbling behind me and flowers in the garden. All in all it met my expectations and then some. Wonderful owners!

Owner's Response: I am so very glad that you had the restful experience that you were looking for. A loss of someone so near and dear is always deeply difficult. I hope that sharing some time with us has helped in your healing journey. It was such a pleasure getting you know you and I hope things will get easier with time. Sincerely Barbara

A First Class Experience at Sidney Mews

  • 5 of 5

I am a former resident of Sidney. On a return visit, my wife and I and our son stayed for a week at Sidney Mews in July, 2014. This one bedroom apartment is spacious, beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. Our host Barbara was very friendly, kind and considerate, and provided excellent advice throughout our stay. Sidney Mews is on a quiet street and is just a five minute walk to Sidney Pier, the Marina, a Supermarket, Starbucks, and the many other shops on Beacon Avenue, the main street in Sidney. We enjoyed the walks along the Sidney waterfront paths, coffee outdoors each morning at Sidney Pier, and excellent waterfront dining, as well as walking in Sidney's many parks. The Town of Sidney maintains wonderful flower boxes along the main streets and beautiful flower beds in the parks. We recommend Sidney Mews to other guests, and hope that you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure hosting you and your wonderful young family here at Sidney Mews. It's great to hear that you where able to take such advantage of our great location and enjoy all our amenities close by. We ourselves also like taking a stroll to the pier and along the ocean. It's a great way to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, no matter what time of day or year! Charm and friendliness is our town. We hope to see you again on future visits.
