              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.

              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. Welcome to pink sunrises silhouetting a distant snow capped Mount Baker and glinting off duck trails across the mirrored waters of Roberts Bay bird sanctuary. Watching colorful kayakers launching nearby to explore Gulf Islands National park. Amble along tree lined All Bay road to coffee shops, fine dining and pubs intermingled with the marinas and yacht charters. Walk a mile or so the other way to Sidney-Town with all its busy charm and pedestrian friendly activities. The Eagles Nest suite is the entire upper level (1500 sq ft) of this waterfront house. 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.
