Perfect!

I strongly agree with the rest of the reviews on Home Suite Home. The suite is wonderful but what really makes this place special is Tara and her family. They are the most welcoming and friendly people. Tara brought me some delicious seafood chowder as well as other yummy treats. Her husband caught a 20 lb salmon and they made candied salmon. Her daughter gave me some applesauce that she made. The location in Sidney is great. It's close enough to easily visit Victoria, but a better place to stay for a peaceful escape. Butchart Gardens and the Butterfly Garden are both about 15 minutes drive away. I also recommend whale watching in Sidney. We saw 4 Orcas, including a baby. I had a great time at Home Suite Home, and so did my cocker spaniel. Thanks Tara!

Everything a vacation home rental experience should be!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we pulled up to the property, Tara and her husband were simply brilliant. I simply cannot say enough good things about our experience- the hosts' generosity, kindness and genuine warmth were complemented by a very well-designed, function and comfortable suite. We stayed for a month, and my children- aged 10 and 6- had the time of their lives, eager to get on the trampoline, pick and eat the garden's fresh veggies and cover the concrete in the provided sidewalk chalk. The backyard was private and serene, and the hot tub rocked!

We have already booked ahead for our next visit- that should tell you everything you need to know about the place. We have rented vacation suites at least a half dozen times before, and this one has been the best experience.

Wonderful suite and great owners

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our 6 night stay at this property. This was a great place to stay for my husband and I. The place is located in a nice neighborhood and close to a small market and fantastic fish and chip restaurant(which we dined at two times-definitely a must do while visiting.) We cooked breakfast daily and made a few evening meals. The stove is electric which I am not familiar with. The bed was comfortable and we slept great. The walk to town was do able but farther then my husband cared to walk. The owners are great to work with and even showed up one night with fresh crab. We did not have time to use the yard or spa. We would definitely consider staying here again if we go back to the island. We did a lot of site seeing and drove 600+miles. The weather was great most of our visit but for a future visit we would go later in the year. Some of the activities we wanted to do were seasonal and not available.

This vacation rental was simply wonderful!
Our family of 4 plus one large dog arrived to find freshly baked bread and beautiful flowers on the counter. The cabinets and fridge were filled with yummy snacks and food staples so we didn't need to go to the grocery store right away. The host, Tara, and her family were so welcoming we felt right at home. The kids loved the trampoline and hot tub and the rental is walking distance to several beaches to stroll for seashells. The suite itself was well equipped with modern appliances, furniture and decor. We especially appreciated the Tassimo coffee machine with endless coffee supply! We were very sad to leave and look forward to returning again in the future!

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5
This suite is everything the description and pictures show it to be. Spotlessly clean and we'll equipped. Great sound proofing and private. The owner and family are friendly and helpful. The suite is supplied with more than just a few items for the first breakfast. The personal touch of fresh baked cookies on arrival and other baking through our stay was very much appreciated. A good supply of cooking staples, spices, sugar, flour, condiments and such was also there. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, and utensils.

The suite is well located with a beach, restaurant, and grocery store all a 5 minute walk away with downtown Sidney less than a 15 minute walk. Both the airport and ferry are a 5 minute drive and downtown Victoria is 25 minutes down the road.

We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and have already made plans to return ourselves next year.

Carefree Cozy Comfort

  • 5 of 5
My son, puppy, cat and I felt so at home here. Everything was at our finger tips and we wanted for nothing. It was very clean and more up to date furnishings than most hotels. The bed was very comfortable with a variety of pillow choices and comforters. The family were so friendly and approachable if we needed anything. Sidney centre was just minutes away, short walk to the beach too. Just what we needed and would recommend to anyone.
