Overview

Sidney House Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront Escape is a balance between the natural west coast ocean and forest surroundings, and being close enough to enjoy the small town country charms of North Saanich and Sidney or city amenities of Victoria BC.

Oceanfront Escape is a balance between the natural west coast ocean and forest surroundings, and being close enough to enjoy the small town country charms of North Saanich and Sidney or city amenities of Victoria BC. The views from this sunny-side south-facing vacation home and property are incredible and can only be appreciated in person since photographs will only provide a taste of what you will really experience while staying at the Oceanfront Escape.

The Oceanfront Escape is a three bedroom, 2200 square foot house situated on an acre of prime oceanfront property in one of Victoria's most sought after communities. There are two bedrooms on the main floor, both with queen beds. The third bedroom is located on the ground floor which is set up as two twins or can be combined into a king bed if required. The main floor boasts spectacular bay windows that provide 180 degree views of the ocean, mountains, Gulf Islands, and harbour. From these windows you can view the sea mammals and birds in the area swim or fly by. Take in the majesty of the resident eagles as they perch themselves on the tree tops outside the windows of the property or watch them soar along the bluff side on patrol hunting for fish from the ocean below. The living room, dining room, and kitchen open plan make it a perfect place to socialize, cook, and eat together without being separated from each other. There is direct access to decks from the main floor as well as from the ground floor. A hot tub is located on the ground level deck which is accessed from a large family room that includes a large wide screen TV, snack kitchen, and wood burning fireplace. Washrooms are located on both floors. The upper floor washroom has a bath tub shower combo while the ground level washroom has a walk-in shower, hand painted wall murals, and a washer and dryer for your convenience. There is exercise equipment located in the car port entrance room for those who need a work out. The grounds are graced with little pathways that take you to the outdoor fireplace area, private contemplative sitting areas and down to the ocean side deck. The pathways get you to experience views, natural flora and fauna and geological rock formations on the property.

The Oceanfront Escape is conveniently located close to many attractions and important transport access points into Southern Vancouver Island. The BC Ferries Swartz Bay dock is only a few minutes away by car where you can come in from, or return to, Vancouver BC. Sidney is only a 5 minute drive away where you can access Washington State Ferries to Anacortes or the San Juan Islands. Victoria is only a 25 to 30 minute drive away where you can access the Blackball Ferry Service on the Coho to Port Angeles Washington. The Victoria International Airport is only a 10 minute drive from the property. There is located public transportation leaving from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal and from Sidney. Many attractions are located nearby such as the World Famous Butchart Gardens, Butterfly World, The Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, and the many curio shops, restaurants, and pubs that dot the streets of Sidney BC. During the late Spring through until the early Fall you can take advantage of the many farmers street markets or street side stands to sample the locally grown produce. There are companies that provide tours of the local waters where you can take a whale watching tour, fishing charter, eco-crusies, kayaking, or boat shuttles to Sidney Spit Island Park which is part of the fairly newly created Gulf Islands National Park. The downtown city of Victoria is a short 30 minute drive where you can experience one Canada's jewels in the crown. Victoria has fantastic restaurants, shopping, and many more attractions for visitors to explore.

The Oceanfront Escape will provide you with wonderful memories and experiences. While visiting Victoria or Sidney BC, make the Oceanfont Escape your home away from home.

Reviewer Comments:

Our visit was during the month of March. We have visited the area most winters but this was the first four week stay and we found this home to measure up to its claims with amazing views of the water with abundant marine traffic, birds and even squirrels to entertain. The weather cooperated, spring came early to Vancouver Island and even had occasion to sit on the deck and catch some rays.

Liked: Open space living area, Deck, Views, SIRIUS Radio, Hot tub, Friendly Hostess addressed concerns

Dislikes: obstructed views - several of the sealed picture windows on one side of the living area have become opaque because they have lost their seals

Suggestions: bring your own fry pan and muffin pan; oven does not show actual oven temp, being it is an older cook top/stove, so bring an oven thermometer

First time using VRBO/EMR and found the experience did not disappoint. If opportunity allows us we would come back.

Spectacular is an understatement; we lived like millionaires!! LOVED it

  • 5 of 5

We knew from the photos and the reviews that this place would be good, we didn't realize it would be as fantastic as it was. We stayed here for a special birthday, so splashed out on a better standard of accommodation that we would ordinarily take and boy this place did not disappoint! We had planned to visit the museum and do some shopping but we just didn't want to leave this place. We were exceptionally lucky that the first morning we woke up, we had spectacular sunny warm weather (for mid Jan) and we sat outside on the deck until the sun went down. My little dog was panting, that is how hot it was. The views are breathtaking and even when the stormy winter weather returned, we still just wanted to sit and gaze out over the water. The views from the hot tub were also amazing. The place was very well cleaned and maintained and comfortable. We did not want to leave and we plan to return. I actually didn't want to write this review as I want it to be kept a secret! Probably not the best for very young children due too steep cliffs on the property (my kids were 9 & 11) TV/DVD/MUSIC and good internet access.

We had the pleasure of staying in this home over Christmas. It has a breathtaking view,always something happening on the ocean and the home is lovely. We extended our visit by two days as we did not want to leave.The neighbourhood is friendly and great to take walks. Short drive to amenities. We loved this trip mostly due to this accomodation.

Spectacular Time in House with Sweeping Ocean Views!

Please share this with the property owner.

****************

My family and I were overwhelmed by the breath-taking beauty of "Oceanfront Escape." The panoramic views of the water and neighboring islands was astonishing.

The outdoor hot tub is why we chose this property. We found it secluded and lovely, with the added plus of having a view.

The property was clean, bright, fresh and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

We come to Sidney at least once a year, but this location was new to us. We found it quiet and convenient to all we chose to do.

We had a very memorable stay at OceanFront Escape and would definitely like to enjoy coming again in the future.
