                          • Sidney by the Sea is a fantastic little town where you can wander at your own pace and enjoy all the gems it has to offer. Stroll down the main street (Beacon Avenue) and stop at one of the many friendly restaurants, cafes, galleries and shops. Take a water taxi across to Sidney Spit and enjoy a picnic on the beach. Book into kayaking and canoe tours or go whale watching. The waterfront around Sidney is great for beach combing and dog-walking. Plan day trips to Victoria, the Butchart Gardens or one of the many Gulf Islands. And when you're done for the day, come back to your cozy home-away-from home, cook a great meal, share your stories around the dinner table and enjoy a well-deserved rest. Then do it all over again the next day....moreless

                            Our family plus 2 dogs showed up to open the door to a very clean, well stocked spacious 3 bedroom home. It was well located to shopping. We walked down by the ocean every night. Parking was easy and it is very accessible. It was wonderful to deal with Jim and Cathy(contact in Sidney).

                            Recommended for: Pet owners, families with teenagers, families with young children, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About the owner: We are Cari Chernichen and Jim Swiss of Calgary, Alberta Canada. We run a successful consulting business that focusses on worker safety and environmental protection. Our work has taken us around the world, but we are constantly drawn to Sidney. It has been our goal to live at least part time on Vancouver Island and to our good fortune, this house came available in early 2013. We jumped at the chance to own it and are thrilled to know it is there for us. It has become our oasis.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sidney:
                          Sidney has been a second home for Cari since the early 1970s. She watched it grow from a tiny fishing and retirement village to the bustling elegant vacation destination it is today. We both love spending as much time as we can in Sidney visiting family and friends who call it home. We have travelled to many places around the globe and have rented vacation properties through VRBO on several of those trips. We have always been more than pleasantly surprised with the accommodations we've found on VRBO and we look forward to sharing our VRBO rental with visitors from around the world.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We love walking and this lovely little house allows us to park our car in the garage and leave it there. Everything we need for day-to-day living is no more than a few blocks away. And if we just don't feel like venturing out the door, the house is so warm and cozy, we can lose ourselves for days in books, movies and home cooking.
