Property description

Beautiful waterfront cottage styled home located near quaint Town of Sidney. This is a two bedroom, two bathroom home just steps from the ocean. Surrounded by stunning gardens including ponds and waterfalls with a wonderful patio for you to sit and enjoy the scenery. On evenings when you want to spend more time outside, there is a covered deck complete with a patio heater. The master bedroom has a propane fireplace for cozy nights and there is a wood burning stove in the great room. The home is completely furnished and includes all the amenities you will need. Located only minutes from the Victoria International Airport, the Anacortes Ferry and BC Ferries. Take a walk along the waterfront to the Town of Sidney or a short drive to the world renowned Butchart Gardens. The City of Victoria is a short distance to drive and there are many interesting things to see and do there.

Take in nature and go for a walk along the beach. On low tides, there is a wonderful sandy beach to walk on. Bird life is abundant and you will see Bald Eagles glide by almost at eye level. Watch otters frolic in the ocean and on odd occasions, you will see Orca Whales swim by.

The two bedrooms both have queen sized beds, all hypo-allergenic pillows and duvets. There is an ensuite bathroom off master bedroom with separate toilet room, two vanities, tub and separate shower. The second bedroom has quick access to another bathroom containing shower, vanity and toilet.

The kitchen is a cook's delight with a Viking propane cooktop, electric oven and a separate propane griddle for those pancake breakfasts or a stir-fry dinner. The fridge has an ice maker and there is also an instant hot water dispenser for your convenience. Sit at the bar and enjoy each other's company during food preparation.
There is a separate eating area that has Eclipse doors so you can open them out and enjoy the outdoors from inside. The great room contains a big screen TV, Blue Ray DVD player, CD player with speakers that can be accessed from outside. There is also a large dining room for those times you might want to have guests come for a visit.

The outside area is completely furnished with BBQ, all patio furniture with cushions for your comfort. The covered deck is accessed from the dining room through custom French doors and has a table with chairs for outside dining or just sitting and relaxing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

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.
