This is one of the best VRBO properties I have ever been to and that's saying a lot! The property is gorgeous with beautiful gardens, and the views of the yacht harbor and the bay from the balcony are terrific. The condo itself is beautifully decorated and perfect for a couple like us. There is a very comfortable king bed and a see-thru fireplace between the bedroom and living room. There was plenty of room for a 1 bedroom and the bathroom was spacious and elegant. The area of Sidney is quaint with great restaurants (Sea Glass is in walking distance and superb), shopping, whale watching and the aquarium is fun. We really hated to leave!
I think we must have been gypsies in another life , we have moved so often and lived in so many places.
But having spent the best past of the last few years moving between our rental homes in the West Indies having a base back here in Sidney has given us a new appreciation for the area that we did not have when we lived and worked here.
Bright and airy. Our own deck to enjoy the sun and water views from.
So convenient to everything , airport, ferry, Victoria and walk into Sidney.
Best Thai food restaurant in Sidney.
