Sidney house description

This incredibly cozy, inviting home is just one block from Sidney's main street (Beacon Avenue) and only six blocks from the ocean. The house is quiet and fully equipped to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It provides the perfect opportunity to gather with family and friends for a shared getaway in a home setting where the beds are comfortable, the showers are warm and the living and dining rooms encourage conversation and relaxation.

The house is in great shape and is well cared for. You'll enjoy quality bedding and towels, cookware and furnishings. The open concept on the main floor offers lots of natural light and creates a warm inviting atmosphere. You'll rest easy and deeply on high-quality mattresses in all the bedrooms.

Use the house for a quiet, restful getaway or as the base for exploring all the wonderful attractions just outside the door. Sidney and the surrounding area have much to offer so every day can bring new adventures.

Travelling to and from Sidney is easy. The Victoria International Airport is 5 minutes away as are ferry terminals for US and BC destinations.

              Car: Not Necessary

              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.

               

              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.
