                      The activities and recreational opportunites in the vicinity are simply too rich to list... at the top end of Ardwell Avenue across the Pat Bay highway there is a visitors information centre with information on wineries, equestrian farms, the galloping goose cycle path to Sooke and endless other opportunities.

                      There are dozens of restaurants in the area and just 5 minutes peaceful walk away there are two 5 sta restaurants up All Bay Road as well as a small bakery coffee shop.

                      The pedestrian friendly location of EaglesNest allows for family members to walk, ride, drive, bus or paddle as they like either together or independently.

                      Should you wish to travel to Victoria, the bus stops on Resthaven $2.50.. or to the ferry to Vancouver or the Gulf Islands for a day trip in the other direction.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About: We are a retired couple who still live in Sidney but have downsized. Eagles Nest is our family home that we have updated and equipped for visitors and visiting family to allow us to continue to share our wonderful piece of paradise. Our son, Adrian manages EaglesNest.

                      Why Sidney:
                      We love this location for the water, the wildlife (it is on the migratory seabird pathway) the walks along the shore and into town, the nearby marinas and restaurants for a morning breakfast walk... it is one of the most sheltered low bank waterfronts in the area and perfect for kayaking, clamming and just soaking up birds and otters of Roberts Bay.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      On Robert's Bay – Sidney B.C. Welcome to Eagle's Nest vacation rental.

Living room with gas fireplace, sun room, three outdoor patios, two bedrooms (queen) and (double + twin), two bathrooms and a TV/media room. Two sofa beds are also available. The house is equipped to make you feel at home, including libraries of music, videos and books as well as board games. For those comfortable on the water, two sit-on-top kayaks are available to explore the sheltered bay. Binoculars and a telescope are provided those enjoying morning coffee in the sun room overlooking the bay or for gazing at the night skies. A spacious kitchen with attached patio allows for shared culinary productions and barbeque masters. This special vacation home is intended for couples and families who enjoy a peaceful waterfront environment while also providing ready access to the activities and facilities of the quaint town of 'Sidney-by-the-Sea.' While a short walk to Sidney's Main St there are also two fine restaurants, a coffee shope, convenience store and masseuse within a 5 minute walk to the Marina and harbour area.
