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.

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!

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.

Handy location

  • 3 of 5
Very well equipped with everything you need. Unfortunately the noise from the house above is a bit much, and the constant fountain means you cant have the window open at night if you dont like the sound of running water whilst in bed. Also we had to wash the bedding so we could change the bed as there was no spare bedding. Very well located for Sidney town, but has its downsides.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback of your visit here at Sidney Mews. We are always trying to communicate with our guests during the course of their stay to ensure that they are comfortable. It is very important to us.
As for the fountain gurgle, we could have easily turned if off for the night had we known that you did not enjoy this ambient sound. It was unfortunate that this was not mentioned to us. We did have family visit us a few days during a portion of your stay and didn't realise that this was disturbing you. Our sincere apologies. Extra bedding is always provided and is stored in the suite closet. I have marked it more clearly for other guests to locate. We welcome all feedback to further improve the vacation experience of all our guests.
I hope that you enjoyed your time visiting your family and your little grandson. It was a pleasure seeing him enjoy your company! Enjoy your summer back in England. Cheers and good luck to you both.

The suite was just perfect. Fresh fruit and fresh flowers awaited us. The owner is super friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient. You can walk to the grocery store and to several restaurants in the area. The suite has a very nice patio area with a pond and fountain. Very tranquil. A great place for a morning coffee. We hope to be able to go back again soon.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you both had an enjoyable stay here at Sidney Mews. I agree that having morning coffee in the sun by the trickling water pond is a great relaxing way to start the day, especially when on vacation! Hope to see you both back, it was a pleasure meeting you both. Good Travels, Barb and Mike

Immaculate attention to detail, excellent location and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for renting your space to me, I really enjoyed the comfort and tranquility of it. Clean, comfortable, warm and cozy. One thing I didn't care for was the bath mat in the tub hurt my feet however it was easy as taking it out! Problem solved. I travel often and your property is such a welcomed change vs. any hotel room I've been in, no matter how luxurious that hotel room might be your space is even better. Thank you so much and I hope to have the opportunity to rent from you again.
