Sidney townhome description

Welcome to SIDNEY MEWS, a vacation rental accommodation in the heart of beautiful Sidney-by-the–Sea on Vancouver Island, BC. SIDNEY MEWS is a one bedroom, ground floor, fully equipped newly remodeled patio suite, located on a quiet street one block from the waterfront promenade, and one block from Beacon Avenue, the town’s main shopping street.

Your suite features local and native west coast art for your enjoyment.

This spacious 660 sq ft vacation rental is a short drive to local amenities and tourist attractions, such as, the world famous Butchart Gardens (15min), local wineries, seasonal markets, the Panorama Recreation Centre with public swimming pool and workout facilites, and just 30min to wonderful downtown Victoria. Vehicle access is quick and easy to the Victoria Airport (5min), Swartz Bay ferry terminal serving Vancouver and the Gulf Islands (10min), and the Black Ball ferry to and from Port Angeles, WA, USA (30min). The Anacortes Wa, USA Ferry terminal is within walking distance of SIDNEY MEWS.

Through your private side entry to SIDNEY MEWS, you will discover a tranquil east facing courtyard patio with a soothing water pond and fountain exclusively for our guests. Visible through your patio doors, your furnished outdoor sitting and dining area invites you to relax on your vacation. Enjoy alfresco dining accompanied by the enchanting music of gurgling water. On your own gas BBQ, prepare west coast delicacies to be savoured in the romantic glow of garden candle light.

This well appointed recently renovated unit has a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with all cooking amenities for your needs: granite counters, contemporary chandelier, full-size stainless steel stove and fridge, microwave, dishwasher, coffee-maker, pots, stem ware, flatware, dishes, and various small appliances. For your convenence, there is also a roller shopping cart to transport your groceries with ease. Three grocery shopping options are available within a short walking distance, so use of a car is optional.

The room is decorated in serene dove gray tones with west coast charm, featuring 400 count linens and a second TV over an electric fireplace for cozy relaxing ambience and optional heat in the winter months. A large closet provides good storage and includes two plush white terry bath robes. A large picture window overlooks the serenity of the water pond.

We are the owners of this property and we reside on the upper two floors of this dwelling. We will try to make this your home away from home. Slow down, unwind, with the gentle breezes. Enjoy the fresh ocean air, the call of the sea gulls as you enjoy your west coast island time.

We look forward to welcoming you to SIDNEY MEWS and a relaxing West Coast stay.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              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.
