Great Sidney condo.

  • 5 of 5

Great location & spotless! Has everything you need. Owner easy to communicate with. I had a lovely few days here & one day want to buy a condo in the Miraloma. So this was a great way to 'check out the building'. I look forward to staying in # 309 again very soon! Thanks & all the best.

An excellent alternative to a hotel

  • 5 of 5

I had a couple of weeks work to do in Victoria and was lucky enough to find this place instead of the hotel option. It had everything I needed (hi speed wireless internet, cable tv, privacy). The location is only 10 minutes away from the ferry terminal. Just outside of Sydney, a great town to visit) it is a bit of a drive to downtown (about 20 minutes) but has a great view of the ocean and is in a really quiet and peaceful area. The condo is tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The owners were very approachable and always available if I had any questions (nice, nice people). I would recommend this rental option to anyone who is spending a bit of time on the island and wants to feel like they never left home.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 3 weeks. What a great "find" in that not only was the location perfect on Vancouver Island it was also a very clean, equipped and a beautiful place. It truly felt like our second home after a few days. From the balcony, we could watch boats, hear birds and just relax looking at the beautiful gardens that surround the condo building. Every day I could walk to Sidney centre which was a 25+ min , "zen" stroll through gorgeous neighborhoods and along the pier boardwalk.

The condo itself was very clean with so many little "extras" (lots of extra staples - ie spices, etc - in the kitchen cupboards; laundry detergents for the in-suite washer/dryer; a welcome binder with so much information about the condo, the town, etc)

The booking process was also great - the owner responded quickly to my numerous questions and was always available for additional questions via email/phone.

Very impressed with this rental - would return again and would highly recommend to others. Great place!

A 15 minute stroll will bring you to Sidney , famous for its many book stores. Added attractions include the Shaw Discovery Centre, Shoal Harbour Bird Sanctuary, salmon fishing, whale watching, kayaking, and a First Nations canoe tour.Close by you can also find the BC Aviation Museum .

Sidney has some excellent places to eat many interesting stores to wander around , and a lovely sea walk.

A bus ride or short drive will take you to wineries, the world famous Butchart Gardens, and Victoria set around the busy inner harbour.

Have tea at the Empress hotel, visit the Maritime Museum, the Royal BC Museum, or some of the many art galleries.Bastion Square is the site of the original Fort Victoria , and now home to many shops and restaurants.

Spend a morning wandering Antique Row ( Fort Street ), China Town, or follow the pedestrian walkway around the inner harbour.

Russells Books on Fort Street is a must for book lovers and Johnson Street for non chain store clothes.

Almost too many things to do and see in Sidney and the surrounding areas !
