Sidney apartment description

This will truly be your 'Home Away From Home' and only 10-15 minutes from almost everything!

A 10-15 minute taxi/drive from Victoria International Airport, BC Ferries Swartz Bay Terminal and Washington State Ferry Terminal. A 10-15 minute walk to Sidney's best beaches and to Sidney main street. There you will find a world-class spa, grocery stores, unique clothing/shoe stores, used and new bookstores, coffee shops, galleries, ocean discovery centre, ocean adventure tours, a cinema, pharmacies, walk-in medical clinics and many restaurants.
Enjoy a beautiful stroll along Sidney's waterfront seawall!
No car is necessary. Around the corner, you can catch the transit bus south to take you into Victoria with it's famous inner harbor and many attractions. Don't forget to visit the famous Butchart Gardens.
There is parking if you bring your car or a rental from the airport. There is also a car rental agency 10-15 minutes walk at the end of the road if you decide to explore beyond the transit for side day trips up island.
Not only is the location so handy for all your outings, you will return to all the comforts of home. Enter your private entrance with patio, gas barbecue and bistro set. The entire suite is fully tiled with in-floor radiant heating though-out (warm in winter, cool in summer). The electric fireplace will create the ambiance for curling up in the evenings.
There is free WiFi to check your emails. Enjoy a 43' HDTV with sound bar and subwoofer including cable and DVD player. There is a selection of DVDs and board games. Curl up with a book or watch TV from the sofa (air mattress queen sofa bed) or glider/ottoman. This new suite was built with extra sound proofing.
The kitchen has a full size fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, toaster and blender. It is fully stocked with glasses, dishes, flatware, utensils, pots, pans and small appliances for all your serving, cooking and baking needs, and basic spices and pantry items. You can pack a picnic and/or put the slow cooker on for a easy meal for when you return after your full day out. Sit up to the table to enjoy your meals, play cards or board games.
In the suite there is central vacuum, a full-size front-loading washer and dryer, detergent, ironing board/iron, beach towels and beach blanket plus portable lawn chairs.
The bathroom includes tub/shower with plenty of towels. A hair dryer, hand soap, bath wash, shampoo and paper products are supplied.
After a day of sightseeing relax with your feet in the portable foot spa! Then off to a premier queen bed with a gel memory foam pillow topper and made up with luxurious linens. In the bedroom there is plenty of closet/storage space, a dresser and cable TV.
If you have a little one, a travel crib/playpen and high chair and toys on request can be added.
All you have to pack is your clothes. We are the owners and live on site so we can be there to help with any questions but at the same time give you your privacy to make this your 'Home Away from Home'.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We have three children and five grandchildren, all living nearby. We moved to Vancouver Island in 1989, then fell in love with Sidney. After 11 years our last child finished high school then we were able to move to Sidney. Then it took another 11 years to find our town lot to build our custom retirement home.

              Why the Owner Chose Sidney:
              After traveling and using VRBO ourselves, we felt our, 'yet to be used' suite would be a perfect fit for a vacation rental. We picked our home location for very specific reasons and we look for similar qualities when we select rentals for our vacations -- close to scenic walkways, grocery stores, restaurants, tourist attractions, airports and ferries. Quiet is also something we wanted, so we're happy we added extra sound-proofing during construction. We also know, the better-equipped the rental is, the more you'll enjoy your stay. You should only need to pack your clothes. With the washer and dryer you don't have to pack many! On our travels we made lists of things that felt were missing and noted extra things owners did. We took our time to finish the suite so that all these details were not overlooked. Although it's a basement suite, it's private, cosy and comfortable.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              We picked our lot to build our home because of location. When we go out for our walks the decision is which beach today. We have three beaches, 10 minute walks in three different directions. We know our guests will love our location also!
