                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: When we are not out beaching it, you'll find us in our framing studio and workshop in Sidney (Picture Panache Framing), which we own and operate in addition to caring for our 4 vacation rental homes (all located in Sidney and surrounding area). When we travel ourselves, we love to visit artist studios and collect artwork. If you happen to be a like-minded art lover, then do be sure to let us know, as there are tons of amazing artists to visit while you are on Vancouver Island. We'd love to connect you with a few! Of course, no matter what your interests, we're happy to provide whatever help you need to plan YOUR perfect trip. Hope to hear from you soon. Susan & Don

                  Why the Owner Chose Sidney:
                  In 2007, our Mom and Dad purchased a quarter share (one week per month) in this studio suite in Miraloma on the Cove, a luxury waterfront rental vacation residence, nestled on 1.5 acres of protected heritage gardens. But, after a few short visits they discovered that a week was never enough! Thus as a family, we set about negotiating to purchase the other 3 quarters, giving us full ownership of the suite and thus complete flexibility in booking stays of any length. Once you've been once, you'll want to stay longer next time! No problem! Today, this suite, which was formerly operated as part of Bellstar Resorts high-end offerings, is offered 'By Owner', allowing a luxury stay at a fraction of the cost you would expect. Our policy is first come, first serve, so don't delay or the dates you want may not be available. We look forward to greeting you! Susan & Don

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Location! Location! Location! Or should I say, View! View! View! From your room and from your balcony you are looking out on the ocean channel where boats enter and exit Tsehum Harbour with its many marinas and yacht clubs. So the scenery is fascinating and ever changing. Not close enough for you to hear any sound from the boats, just lovely silent vistas. Glistening water, boats and sunsets! What a heavenly combination. Glorious in the bright sunshine, mysterious in the mist and new everyday! Inside the suite is roomy and elegantly appointed. You really will love the views, the suite, the grounds and all of the amazing activities available in the surrounding area. Take care or you'll be asking me for a referral to a good real estate agent and next thing, you'll be moving here! It happened to us. It could happen to you.You won't want to leave. Happy Planning! Email us now. Susan & Don
