About Tony Jackson
Sarah (my wife) and I are in our early 60ss. We have recently retired from the corporate world and moved to Vancouver Island in 2015. We have recently passed the the CELTA programme in Chiang Mai to teach English as a second language. Our goal is to travel through working on volunteer/charity projects using the teaching qualification wherever we can. What couldn't I live without; music, the opportunity to travel, the opportunity to try new experiences and friends and family. I have two mottos and I thank the dance band Faithless for both: 1. You don't need eyes to see, you need vision. (Salva Mea) 2. How can I change the world if I can't even change myself? (Reverence)
Tony Jackson purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Tony Jackson chose Mill Bay
Location, location, location and the potential to convert a large workshop into the 2 bedroom apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location and views are spectacular. Vancouver Island is also mid point (almost) for our travels to Europe and Asia.

Peaceful getaway, between Victoria and other island locations
The apartment was in a gorgeous location with bay view from deck and all windows. Very clean, had everything imaginable you would need, including full kitchen with cookware, and grill out on the deck. Exceptional hosts, providing every detail. 5 mins. from the small Mill Bay/Brentwood ferry near Butchart gardens. GREAT place!
This property is amazing. The view from the rooms and the deck is fantastic and the owners have literally thought of everything.
On a sunny day hummingbirds and other wildlife entertain you on your private deck. You can cook to your hearts content in the kitchen which has virtually every gadget you might need. This place is the perfect base for trips on the southern part of Vancouver island as most places are only a short drive away.
Tony and Sarah have provided a veritable oasis amidst the busyness of Vancouver Island! It is an extremely well-appointed unit! We were able to have a family barbecue on their lovely deck! Thanks for a great experience😊
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mill Bay! The accommodations and view were incredible! Tony & Sarah were very helpful and knowledgeable of the area and were very prompt to reply when we had a question. The suite was very comfortable, clean and had everything we required. We would highly recommend staying with Tony & Sarah and we will return one day!
