About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Oceanfront Escape is a balance between the natural west coast ocean and forest surroundings, and being close enough to enjoy the small town country charms of North Saanich and Sidney or city amenities of Victoria BC. The views from this sunny-side south-facing vacation home and property are incredible and can only be appreciated in person since photographs will only provide a taste of what you will really experience while staying at the Oceanfront Escape.

The Oceanfront Escape is a three bedroom, 2200 square foot house situated on an acre of prime oceanfront property in one of Victoria's most sought after communities. There are two bedrooms on the main floor, both with queen beds. The third bedroom is located on the ground floor which is set up as two twins or can be combined into a king bed if required. The main floor boasts spectacular bay windows that provide 180 degree views of the ocean, mountains, Gulf Islands, and harbour. From these windows you can view the sea mammals and birds in the area swim or fly by. Take in the majesty of the resident eagles as they perch themselves on the tree tops outside the windows of the property or watch them soar along the bluff side on patrol hunting for fish from the ocean below. The living room, dining room, and kitchen open plan make it a perfect place to socialize, cook, and eat together without being separated from each other. There is direct access to decks from the main floor as well as from the ground floor. A hot tub is located on the ground level deck which is accessed from a large family room that includes a large wide screen TV, snack kitchen, and wood burning fireplace. Washrooms are located on both floors. The upper floor washroom has a bath tub shower combo while the ground level washroom has a walk-in shower, hand painted wall murals, and a washer and dryer for your convenience. There is exercise equipment located in the car port entrance room for those who need a work out. The grounds are graced with little pathways that take you to the outdoor fireplace area, private contemplative sitting areas and down to the ocean side deck. The pathways get you to experience views, natural flora and fauna and geological rock formations on the property.

The Oceanfront Escape is conveniently located close to many attractions and important transport access points into Southern Vancouver Island. The BC Ferries Swartz Bay dock is only a few minutes away by car where you can come in from, or return to, Vancouver BC. Sidney is only a 5 minute drive away where you can access Washington State Ferries to Anacortes or the San Juan Islands. Victoria is only a 25 to 30 minute drive away where you can access the Blackball Ferry Service on the Coho to Port Angeles Washington. The Victoria International Airport is only a 10 minute drive from the property. There is located public transportation leaving from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal and from Sidney. Many attractions are located nearby such as the World Famous Butchart Gardens, Butterfly World, The Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, and the many curio shops, restaurants, and pubs that dot the streets of Sidney BC. During the late Spring through until the early Fall you can take advantage of the many farmers street markets or street side stands to sample the locally grown produce. There are companies that provide tours of the local waters where you can take a whale watching tour, fishing charter, eco-crusies, kayaking, or boat shuttles to Sidney Spit Island Park which is part of the fairly newly created Gulf Islands National Park. The downtown city of Victoria is a short 30 minute drive where you can experience one Canada's jewels in the crown. Victoria has fantastic restaurants, shopping, and many more attractions for visitors to explore.

The Oceanfront Escape will provide you with wonderful memories and experiences. While visiting Victoria or Sidney BC, make the Oceanfont Escape your home away from home.

Reviewer Comments:

My sisters and I have a weekend getaway once a year. This year we choose the Oceanfront Escape just outside of Sidney as my sister was having her convocation from UVic. We were extremely pleased when we walked into the home, there was everything we had asked for and more. The home was clean, well equipped, the hot tub overlooking the ocean as well as the entire open concept top floor. The fireplace added a cozy touch for the rainy day. We were on a dead end road perfect for our morning and afternoon walk. We were extremely pleased with the overall location and wonderful layout of the home. Beautiful. The downstairs fridge was not working properly and the bbq was dirty so we didn't use it. Otherwise no complaints.

We had a wonderful 3 days at the cabin to celebrate thanksgiving with friends. The house had everything we needed except no dishwasher tablets and enough toilet paper (we ran out on day 2!) Location is ideal so close to the ferry. A nice quiet area and 10min drive to the shops. Will be back again I'm sure!

My family and I had a wonderful in Sidney. The house was fantastic and the views were exceptional. The unobstructed views of the water were amazing. The house has everything you need for a very enjoyable stay. Very private and peaceful. Just a short drive into town for restaurants or groceries. The only maybe negative was the downstairs bedroom. The twin bed on the left needs a new mattress and the window needs blinds or thicker curtains.

Reviewer Comments:

Started out stressful for our flight arrived late night and had no clear directions to get to the place. To top it off, my GPS did not initially work and it was our first visit to the island. Thanks to our greeter, Richard, he met us right off the highway and led us to the place which had quite a few twists and turns. The rest of our stay was great and we really enjoyed the time just looking at the view. One noticeable thing was that the main floor got almost unbearably hot whenever we arrived late afternoon from sightseeing. None of the heaters were on as we checked repeatedly. Another minor thing was the bed sheets,cover and pillow covers could use a fresher scent as it had a sort of musty odor where my wife and I stayed. This is the bedroom next to the bathroom. Like, I said, these are both minor issues and we still enjoyed the house immensely! I would definitely rent the place again. Thank you to the EMR staff, especially Judi and Richard, our greeter who was so patient with us. Can't wait to schedule another trip to the island.

Reviewer Comments:

We love staying at Oceanfront Escape. We have stayed there 2 years in a row and booked for 2017. The only issues we have are: there needs to be a fan for a hot day; and a screen for the patio doors leading out to the deck (to keep the wasps out of the house and to create a crosswind on a hot day).
