AMAZING place to stay on Vancouver Island!

  • 5 of 5

So I may be a few months late for this review... but better late than never!

It was our first time to the area and we were treated so well! George made sure that we had drinks and snacks of our choice at the house when we arrived. We had some luggage issues and they really went out of their way to help make us feel comfortable. Lila was so sweet and welcomed us in like we were family. I cannot thank you guys enough for providing us with a beautiful home to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We hope to be back soon!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Sidney area many times before, but we're delighted with this home. The ease of access from the airport after a long flight and transfer in Vancouver was so helpful.

The first morning greeted us with the most incredible sunrise, and they just kept coming throughout our stay.

Everything about the property was first class, including the booking process made so easy by George.

The friendliness of Lila and Les, was something we will long remember and hope to experience again next year.

Thanks for making our holiday so memorable

Our 2nd Time Staying Here

  • 5 of 5

We knew to book early as this was our second time staying at this stunning property. The location and panoramic views of the ocean can't be beat. There are bike and walking paths that run along the ocean. It was easy to get around and close to all amenities. The home itself is very spacious and well appointed with the highest finishing. Be sure to check out the outdoor market every Thursday in Sidney where the main street is closed from 4-9 and features numerous vendors selling local crafts & foods. Thank you to George the property manager and the owners for their gracious hospitality. We will definitely be back a third time!

This is the perfect vacation rental. Right across the street from the water and within walking distance to the town of Sidney. Sidney is a lovely small town with everything you will need available there. It is just an easy 20 minute drive to Victoria. This home is beautiful and everything is top of the line. George was wonderful to work with very helpful.

Beautiful view and nicely appointed home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our one week stay - the home was spotless, very nicely furnished with a very spacious layout (perfect for 2 couples since it has 2 large bedrooms, each with their own ensuite). The view of the water from the front of the house is beautiful, and the flowers and shrubs surrounding the house/front patio area are lovely. Location wise, you can walk across the road and onto the path that goes right into Sidney town (nice not to have to take the car if you want to go out for a bite to eat). There is a quite a bit of traffic on Lochside drive but you get used to it (and the view more than makes up for it). The kitchen has everything you need and we liked being able to BBQ. We would definitely return to this home again.

Everything about this condo was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month in January/February 2015 and found it to be a wonderful experience. The unit was beautifully appointed and very well maintained with comfortable furnishings and a spectacular kitchen. The size of the unit exceeded our expectations -- spacious and very comfortable for the 4 of us. The location was ideal, easy walking distance to downtown Sidney, and convenient to all the local tourist spots and restaurants.

It was a pleasure to work with George during the booking process. He very pleasant and friendly via e-mail and telephone and answered our inquiries promptly and was the point-person during our stay if any questions or concerns arose.

The owner met us upon our arrival and gave us a walk-through of the unit to familiarize us with how things work and where things were stored. She and her husband were very gracious and accommodating and clearly showed how caring they are.

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this wonderful place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sidney is a quaint Sea side town that has a lot to offer, yet close enough to explore the other Gulf Islands and Victoria area. It was a pleasure to meet you and look forward to your return visit next year. George
