Sidney apartment description

This walk-in Garden Suite by the Sea is a self-contained, first class, fully furnished, fully appointed rental accommodation.

The town of Sidney is located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Sidney-by-the-Sea is a beautiful seaside town with cobble stone sidewalks, artistic statues, summer markets, street cafes', sea side walkways, etc. Other amenities include art galleries, numerous grocery stores, wine stores, pubs, library,great restaurants, book stores, recreational center, ocean water activities, and city amenities. Complete medical services are also readily available.

Victoria International Airport (YYJ), the Swartz Bay to Vancouver, Saltspring Island, Galiano Islands and the Washington State Ferry (gateway to the San Juan Islands) are just minutes away. The bustling harborside City of Victoria is less than a 15 minute drive, or safe and beautiful bus ride, away.

As the oceanside gateway to the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands, and with all that's available on the Saanich Peninsula, Sidney offers access to myriad recreational activities including sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, whale watching, golfing, cycling, hiking and more. Our fully furnished two bedroom, one bathroom suite offers 2 separate bedrooms, and each has a queen size bed with quality linens.

Very easy access ( @5 min ) from Victoria International Airport, BC Tsawwassen/Swartz Bay Ferry, walk accross street to Washington State /Anacortes Ferry. Less than 20 minute drive from Victoria (Black Ball Ferry from Port Angeles, US).

The suite is new, fresh, bright, comfortable and professionally decorated. The new deluxe queen beds will ensure a relaxing sleep and you'll wake refreshed with a picture window view to your private garden oasis.

Get your own groceries and cook in your full kitchen facilities (includes coffee machine & milk steamer, fridge, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, small appliances, enough dishes for you and guests). Or to heck with cooking and decide to treat yourself by walking to one of the many fabulous restaurants.

The living area is so very comfy for kicking back. Cherish some alone time reading on the patio loungers, snuggle with your sweetie on the huge sofa or enjoy your favourite media in the entertainment system (Cable TV, DVD, AM/FM, CD, I Pod Dock, and library of CD's, DVD's, books and games).

Patio doors open from the living room to the private, professionally landscaped, well maintained backyard with a lovely unistone patio, year round greenery, barbecue, patio furniture, and shade umbrella. Sunny mornings, shady afternoons, you'll not want to leave! Except for your walks along the seawall and poking through the unique seaside shops.

Breath in deeply and enjoy the moist freshness of the ocean air. Anticipate many days exploring quaint Sidney by the Sea. Walk to everything. Enjoy Starbucks, Sidney's many bookstores, unique clothing stores, galleries, world class spas, or plan a great outdoor adventure. Sidney is also well situated for day trips to the Gulf Islands, spending time at Butchart Gardens, Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, visiting world famous Victoria Inner Harbour with all the street performers and so much more. You name it, it's at your beck and call.

So whether you're looking for a one week getaway in the summer or a whole winter escape from the snow, we think you'll be glad you chose the Patio Suite.

Hope to hear from you soon.

              Car: Not Necessary

              Thank you for taking an interest in our picturesque town of Sidney-by-the-Sea. Situated amidst the Gulf Islands with Mount Baker in the distance, you will quickly discover why we are fortunate to live, work and play in this community where you can experience the relaxed atmosphere of a small seaside town and enjoy all the advantages of the big city.

              Sidney is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island on the Saanich Peninsula - just a 20 minute drive from downtown Victoria. Sidney is home to the Sidney / US (Anacortes, WA) Ferry Terminal and just minutes from the Victoria International Airport as well as the Swartz Bay BC Ferry Terminal. Wide-ranged local bus service is available to all areas of the Peninsula and downtown Victoria. Our weather is the mildest in Canada with prevailing westerly ocean winds moderating both summer and winter temperatures.

              We are a year round tourist destination with 3.6 kilometres of waterfront and many wonderful activities to explore including: a Historical Museum; the Ocean Discovery Centre; whale watching; street statues and murals; a Mineral World; and our 420 ft. Fishing Pier with a thriving marine life Artificial Reef. Our waterfront location allows for many other water related activities such as boating, sailing, kayaking, diving and fishing.

              Our pedestrian friendly downtown offers an excellent variety of stores, specialty shops and businesses providing unique products and personalized service. Sidney is Canada's only Booktown where you can enjoy many hours of browsing through new and used books in a large number of bookstores. Sidney’s restaurants offer a diverse assortment of excellent meals and cater to all tastes.

              Sidney is alive with culture and entertainment, boasting its own exciting 310 seat multi-purpose Theatre for stage productions.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We started coming to the Island over 6 years ago and with each visit fell more and more in-love with it.

              Why the Owner Chose Sidney:
              Mary Alice had a strong visceral reaction to the Lochside ocean walkway and said ' This is it !!!' So, here we are. The Lochside beach walkway is one of the longest, private and most beautiful stretches of oceanfront on the Island.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Ever been crabbing? Sidney and Sidney Pier (500 meters away ) is one of the best places to catch large red rock crabs. There are Dungeness crabs too. Just lower your crab trap off the pier, tie it off and come back in a couple of hours. Other than crabbing, the fishing in Sidney is quite decent ... you may be able to catch some good-sized soles right from the pier.
