Sidney House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 2, close to the beach


Welcome to our West Coast vacation suite, located in Sidney-by-the-Sea, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Our modern West Coast-themed one bedroom suite features high-end quality finishing’s and furnishings to provide you with everything you would need at a ‘home away from home’. The suite is decorated with local native artwork, which creates a warm and welcoming environment to enjoy. Two reclining leather chairs invite you to rest and relax with a book or in front of a large flat-screen television. Or sit in the sunshine on the small deck with the double French-doors.

Our custom made kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances and European-made washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is supplied with all that you may need.

The bathroom is lovely; with heated marble floors and a custom granite floating vanity. The best part is the spa rain shower and bathtub.

We are located one block from the beach and less than five minutes from Sidney’s main street, BC Ferry’s Swartz Bay terminal, Washington State Ferry terminal and the Victoria International Airport. Downtown Victoria is a 25 minute drive and the world famous Butchart Garden’s is 15 minutes away.

Come explore all that Vancouver Island has to offer! Feel free to call us any time for additional information.

We look forward to welcoming you.

The apartment was decorated so nicely and had everything we needed. Photos don't do it justice. Close to downtown Sidney, very convenient. Hosts were very attentive and friendly.

Gorgeous one bedroom apartment. Modern, quiet in a little cul de sac only one block from beach

  • 5 of 5

Well, I wondered if all the raving reviews I read were actually true.... And, they were! Geoff and Brenda are amazing. So helpful, accommodating and hospitable!! And, they put EVERYTHING you could possibly need in this beautiful, cozy apartment. We could not have chosen a better place to stay!! Great access to "downtown" Sidney and walkways/bike paths. We hope to come back again next year!! Thank you so much!!

This is a wonderful facility. It is new and well furnished. It certainly provided all the requirements that we needed. The bus service in Sidney is exceptional and we were able to use it for trips to Victoria and the Sidney area therefore eliminating the need for a car rental.

Our Hosts Geoff & Brenda were like family to us and we appreciated the welcome they extended. We are thinking seriously of going out next year and this would be our first choice.

We would recommend this place to anyone.

Thanks again Geoff & Brenda and we look forward to hearing from you and seeing you again.

The Woodlands, Texas

Classy condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is well-equipped and beautifully decorated. It's very comfortable and in a quiet cul-de-sac between the Swarz Bay ferry terminal and "downtown" Sidney. The buses to the ferry and also to Victoria are 2 minutes from the condo. A day ticket - on and off as many times as you like - costs $5. So you can manage without a car even if you don't like to walk far. We preferred to walk into Sidney about 20 minutes on foot. It was very pleasant as the town is pretty. The bus ride into Victoria took a little over an hour but again the island is beautiful. Our hosts Geoff and Brenda were very friendly and attentive. We could not have asked for more
