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
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-by-the-Sea. 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
We both enjoy the opportunity to speak FRENCH and enjoy practicing the second language whenever we get the chance with people we meet. Sidney Mews has an ideal Location, centrally located in Town yet away from the major bustle! You can even see the water at the end of our street. Best of Both Worlds!!
This was our 2nd visit to Sidney Mews this June 2015 which speaks volumes about our views. You go over the top to make our visit special. We love the location and the comfortable homey feel that you've created. The little touches are much appreciated and not at all little! We love Sidney and the opportunity to visit dear friends. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We will be back again.
A delightful oasis in the middle of Sidney. Warm, comfortable, well equipped and oh, so peaceful. We never heard a thing despite being tucked away only 2 blocks from main street Sidney. Lovely ambiance with a great view of the pond. A perfect retreat yet everything within easy walking distance. Terrific value. Will be the first place I will call next time I wish to stay in the area. The special bonus for me was it’s ground floor with no stairs. Thank you Barbara. You were a most gracious host.
Sidney Mews is a lovely place to stay and is very conveniently located to explore the town of Sidney. All of the amenities (and there are lots of them) were operational and we thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay.
Our One week family stay at Sidney Mews was a splendid experience. It was like a home away from home, and Barbara was always there - A very big thank you from the Kids. If you are considering a visit to the Island, then Sidney Mews is the place to stay. LOVE IT!!!
In trying to extend our stay a week in beautiful Sidney, you so generously allowed us to book Sidney MEWS!! Thank you!!! We loved the beautifully appointed yet homey feel, the closeness to everything including our morning and nightly walks ocean side, grocery and fish market, and of course the bike distance away from all of the bicycle trails Mike came to know and love!! I will cherish our impromptu visits Barbara, and thank you so much for all the advice and tips on the area. I can tell you love it there! We will be back for years to come we hope!! Thank you and Mike so much for this home away from home!!
After five nights at Sidney Mews we were NOT ready to leave back to the world. We feel in love with the quaint town of Sidney and it's friendly, kind people! Besides being a quiet, cozy "home away from home", Barbara added special little touches to make it extraordinary. There was fresh fruit and yummy bakery items to enjoy, robes, and oh, the warm bathroom floor, my feet were in love, among other little surprises!! The outside deck and water feature was so soothing. And, the little Eastview Park was just around the corner. We loved our walks and hikes in the area. We enjoyed using the picnic basket that was provided as we explored the Island. The street faire on Thursday night was fun. Barbara is sweet and friendly and knowledgeable about the area! We would love to come and stay again sometime!!
Nicely furnished clean accommodations in a very convenient location. The outside deck and pond complete with a waterfall was gorgeous. My husband really appreciated the espresso machine that Barbara had set up for us. We really enjoyed watching the Canada Day parade with Barbara and Mike. The Thursday night market in town was amazing. To top this off the ocean is only a 5 minute walk from the suite. I'll look forward to returning.................
Great Location, one block off the water, lots of waterfront walking to do.
