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!

This was such a wonderful place to stay. From the moment we walked in we felt at home. It is a cozy, private and quiet place with peaceful views of the cove. The kitchen was very well stocked, and we loved that it had washer/dryer as well. It was very clean, and the bed was so comfortable! There is a quaint coffee shop within walking distance. Everything far exceeded our expectations and we'd love to come stay again. The owner was delightful as well!

Fast track to spring blooms

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay! We appreciated the the kitchen facilities and the washer and dryer. The grounds, the building, the condo exceeded our expectations. The unit and the building were very clean. The building is very quiet. We saw a few people in the main floor common room and balcony but heard no noise whatsoever. For anyone interested in using the ferries in the area, you should purchase your tickets at Thrifty Foods, you will save over 30%. Would recommend The Sea Glass restaurant which is on the waterfront within walking distance. We already plan to return and will contact Joanne to see if the unit is available. I would recommend to friends.

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 !
