Excellant location and view. Accommodation A1.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at Sunrise on the Sea. The accommodation and location is outstanding. The unit is within easy walking distance along the shore to the centre of town with restaurants, coffee shops, cinema and grocery stores.

Our hosts Lila & Les and manager George as always are very accommodating.

We hope to return soon.

Great location, very good property, and helpful people

  • 5 of 5

This was out 4th visit, coming from Scotland, which speaks for itself. Every year we say "we really should try somewhere new" and then come back to Sidney. The property is roomy, comfortable, and well-equipped, and George, the friendly and helpful manager is always available to deal with any minor issues. The view is stunning (the name says it all) and there is a pleasant, level, walk to the town with a good number of places to eat. The Saanich peninsula and surrounding area are beautiful, and Victoria is a short drive away. The property is close to Victoria airport and the ferry to Tsawassen for Vancouver or to Anacortes for Washington State. There are also other ferries to the Gulf Islands. Perfect location for a relaxing holiday, and one to be recommended

It was like winning the jackpot when we discovered 9472 Lochside Drive .Everything about Sunrise on the Sea is spectacular. The house is in within easy walking distance from the centre of town and just steps away from an amazing sea walk.The gourmet kitchen is well equipped with top of the line cooking utensils. Lila , Les and George were very helpful in assisting us with our early arrival. We had no problem in deciding on booking for the same six week period next year.

Everything we could have hoped for, and then some!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described - Spectacular! The purpose of our visit was to cycle the beautiful Lochside and Galloping Goose trails. We had 18 wonderful days of cycling, and came "home" every day to superb 5 star accommodations. Spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped. And best of all, the view! Close to shopping and great restaurants in Sidney. Wish we were able to stay longer. We'll be back!

Great Vacation Rental Home!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful rental home! The booking process was smooth and stress-free and upon arrival George was there to greet us and show us around the property even though it was later in the evening. The house was extremely clean and updated and everything we needed was there.

The location made for an easy walk to downtown and the views from the property were spectacular!

From start to finish the rental process was handled in a very professional manner and we would not hesitate to stay here again!
