About Kathryn Panrucker

Born and married in England, we came to Canada in 1975.

We have two children and two grandchildren. We enjoy being in Sidney so much we look forward to bringing in more visitors from around the world.

Kathryn Panrucker purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kathryn Panrucker chose Vancouver Island

After living most of our lives in a northern community of B.C. and having a sister living on the Island, we came across Sidney on one of our many visits and found it so relaxing as you can walk around it so easily along the streets or walking trails. The people are friendly and we feel so at ease there.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is so centrally located that it is a pleasure to walk around town or down to the beach. Bicycles are available for rent just around the corner for those who wish to explore further afield. The streets in Sidney are kept immaculately clean.

Great condo close to water, restaurants & shops

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful condo for two enjoyable weeks. The condo is very well furnished with every convenience you would expect in a luxurious rental. Its location is close to Sisney's restaurants, shops and the water. Two of our favorite restaurants are the Swiss Bistro and Beacon Harbor and are easily within walking distance. Kathyrn was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions on a timely basis. We had a great time!

Sidney Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a very attractive condo. The photos really don't do it justice. We were immediately impressed with how spacious it is, and the patio is a delight. We were able to walk just about everywhere we wanted or needed and rarely used the car we had borrowed. We had a lovely time!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was a repeat. We like the location -- great for walking to the ocean, into the town, and for getting groceries. The unit had everything one would want. The complex was quiet and clean. Not only would we come back again, but we have done so 3 times. We are so happy staying here that we don't even rent a car. Also, the unit is only one block from the transit bus for going to Victoria.

Great little condo

  • 4 of 5

This unit fit our needs perfectly for our eight day stay in Sidney. The location was great, right in the heart of this beautiful little town. The accommodation was very clean, something that is important to us. Due to the time of year we unfortunately couldn't make use of the well appointed deck sitting area and BBQ. Building was quiet and well maintained. Although we had a rental car for the week, we did not use it much as you can walk everywhere. Our only complaint was one day going down to the car park there was a strong smell of smoke at the bottom of the stairwell. Would definitely recommend this unit and hope to stay again later this year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for a lovely review, we are so glad you like Sydney and the condo. We will look into the smoke smell in the stairwell as this hasn't come up before and this is a non smoking building. Usually we receive comments on how the building still smells new. We look forward to having you return one day. Kind regards, Ken and Kathryn
