About the owner: We are a local couple living close to our vacation rental home. We are in the construction business, husband has been a builder for more than 40 years of quality homes and condominiums. We live about 15 minutes away from the rental property and are able to be of assistance should it be needed promptly. If there is an item that you need and isn't at the rental, we are more than happy to assist it getting it there.
Why the Owner Chose Sidney: We bought this property to downsize from a large home we previously owned as our family left home. Now we feel like a change and don't want to sell our home because it is a beautiful waterfront property and we love it. We have always lived on the Island, in fact, in this area and feel it has a lot to offer to travellers from all over. We may move back to this home one day but in the meantime, we will rent it out. The waterfront here is beautiful at all times of the year and should be shared!
The Unique Benefits at this House: We loved the views from this house. There is always something going on, summer time there is the boat traffic, great walking on the beach. In the winter, there are amazing winter storms to watch. It is unbelievably nice to sit on the patio in the lounge chairs with a nice glass of wine in your hand and just enjoy staring out to sea. We find it very peaceful and relaxing, especially with the water features running.
