Sidney Mews is like a home away from home in its level of comfort and ambiance and there are many extras too. We were picked up from the air port and fresh flowers, fruit basket, croissants & jam awaited. Beautiful electric fireplaces are in both the living room and bedroom. The private deck with bubbling water and bountiful greenery is enjoyed from both inside and out. Sidney Mews, being close to everything needed within walking distance, including the ocean, is a wonderful place to stay, as are the people who host it.

Owner response: It was lovely to hear that you found the suite so comfortable and homey. That is how we want our guest to feel. Your guest book comments were wonderful!! It was great that you enjoyed watching all the bird life, herons, finches frolicking in our pond, morning doves cooing, humming birds whizzing by... I agree the fresh fish from the fish market down the street at the dock is second to none. We ourselves fully enjoy this local treat as well. Enjoy your vacation memories of Sidney back in the UK. Cheers to you both! Barb & Mike

Our stay for the Month of May at Sidney Mews
We very much enjoyed meeting your and the accommodations were Very, Very Nice! We give you an "Excellent" and, yes, we are happy to, and will, recommend your place to friends - we do have the business cards. And as you well know (!!!!), we did have some company show up to see us in Sidney and they were all impressed with "Our place away from Home" and I know if the occasion arises, they, too will recommend your accommodations. Hope you have a great summer.

We would like to start off by saying thank you for allowing us into your home. From the moment we arrived, your professionalism was second to none. The warmth, generosity and kindness you displayed, not just to us but to my Dad and Uncle as well made us all feel very welcomed. In our opinion our experience at Sidney Mews was better than a 5 star resort.... and for this we thank you! We look forward to coming back next year. We would definitely recommend a stay at Sydney Mews.

Owner response: It was absolutely lovely hosting both of you on your Winter Getaway here at Sidney Mews. You two certainly escaped all that snow for a while at least. Isn't it nice being Snow Birds and not having to leave the country. We're looking forward to seeing both you again. Cheers and Good Travels!

About the owner: We have lived on the Saanich Peninsula Since 1999 and have recently moved to Sidney to experience it's many charms. Both Barb and Mike can help you find whatever you are looking for in the area and are always glad to share Sidney and the Saanich Pennisula's many attractions! This area is truely a wonderful treasure on the west coast. We both have FRENCH as a second language and welcome the opportunity to practice speaking it whenever we can!
Why the Owner Chose Sidney:
We first relocated to Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island from Ottawa, ON in 1999 with the intention of giving our three boys a different living experience in another part of Canada. We’ve never turned back. The West Coast life style is the perfect fit for our family. As the boys grew up and started moving out, we decided to relocate from our suburban home in Brentwood to the vibrant small coastal town of Sidney. This wonderful friendly sea side town offers everything at your finger tips. We are truly enjoying the life style change and the absolute convenience this location provides us and for the many guests that we are hosting here at Sidney Mews. Let us share with you the many delightful attractions, Sidney, the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria have to offer. Come, stay and explore this slice of paradise that we have come to love. Like us, you’ll be glad you did! Barbara and Mike
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We both enjoy the opportunity to speak FRENCH and enjoy practicing the second language whenever we get the chance with people we meet.
