Overview

About the property

Lower Suite in Home: Bedroom w/Queen & Bunks, Livingroom w/Queen Sofa bed

BRAND NEW in 2012: 'Home Suite Home' in Sidney by the Sea.

Wake up to sunshine streaming through the front windows. Relax all day on your private South-West facing patio, or take a five-minute stroll to the nearest beach.

Explore the many boutique shops on Beacon Avenue, a 20 minute walk. Discover Sidney's many book stores and coffee shops as well!

Practise your culinary skills in the well-appointed custom kitchen, order in, or dash out to one of many local and delicious restaurants for dinner.

Spend your evenings soaking under the stars in the hot tub, or have a candle-light bath in the deep soaker tub... step out onto heated tile floors in the bathroom.

Finish your day by snuggling into bed, enjoying a great nights' sleep on a 5-star luxury hotel mattress set in a gorgeous sleigh bed.

If you packed light or encountered inclement weather and would like to do some laundry, our laundry room is nearby, and we're happy to share!

A propane fire-pit and trampoline are available for sharing in the back yard! Having raised our own children in the area, we can recommend some really neat places to visit with the little or mid-sized ones - just let us know and we'll help with the fun!

Whatever your style, we know you will find Sidney a lovely place to visit, and we trust that you will find this accommodation to be your 'Home Suite Home' while you're here.

COMPLIMENTARY snacks are provided in the pantry, and breakfast items for several days' worth of breakfasts are provided in the fridge.

Note: Although the suite theoretically has sleeping space for up to six (queen bed, queen sofa bed, & two little bunks), the space is best suited to two adults and two small children, OR two adults and an additional adult or two if just for a short period. The couch sits three. Two bar chairs are in the suite, with two more available upon request. Ottoman stools and extra camp-style chairs are also available upon request. It's all about versatility :-)

*** We kindly request that there be NO SMOKING on the property.***

Thank you Tara and families for providing a home away home! It was cozy and comfortable. Our two boys loved the bunk bed converted from closet so much!

This was a great place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this comfortable place and were walking distance to town. Our 9 year old granddaughter was cozy in the top bunk in the closet. We all loved the hot tub which we used every night. Milk, cereal, and snacks were provided and we felt very welcomed. We would recommend this place.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

For me the location ideal. It is a 12 minute walk to downtown. 5 min to a convenience store. Close to beaches and great walking areas. A 5 min drive to the ferries and 25 min to downtown Victoria.

The suite is very quiet and well set up. Everything that one will need is there. The owners are friendly and strive to ensure that you have a good stay.

I highly recommend this rental.

Stylish, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three-week stay in this well-designed, bright and cosy one-bedroom apartment situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. The queen-sized bed is really comfortable and the heater is very efficient. The large shower head is a real luxury, as is the heated bathroom floor, and there are plenty of fluffy towels. It has a full kitchen with a large amount of cutlery, crockery, glassware, pots and pans. There are generous pantry provisions to welcome you. The Sidney shops are a short walk away, either via the main road or by the waterfront. The bus to the ferry or downtown Victoria is at the end of the street. It is so conveniently located. There is even a great local fish & chip shop a 5-minute walk away.

Tara, Dan and the girls are lovely welcoming hosts. They were on hand if needed or just for a chat, but never intrusive.

We were visiting my Mum, who lives a few streets away, and definitely plan to stay here during every future visit.

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

I was so lucky to have found Tara and her lovely suite in 2013. In total, I stayed here 3 times, prior to moving to Sidney. The last time I stayed was for a month, and was extremely comfortable. Sidney is lucky to have this little gem for visitors to rent.
