"Location was unbeatable, right on the water with awesome views. More than adequate space in the house for two people! Advertised as 2 bdrm but really a 3 bdrm. House needs a bit of work and an update, but was fine for our needs. Equipped with all supplies needed for long term use, as we stayed for 2 months! The owner was very thorough in his guest manual instructions, and Internet speed was great. Plenty of blankets, pillows, towels etc and laundry facilities are more than ample.
Although the pictures give the impression of isolation and complete serenity, Resthaven Drive is a major thoroughfare so is not at all true to street name! Bus runs right by the house, and house is not well insulated from noise. Public beach access is also right by the house, so lots of foot traffic as well.
We were commuting to work almost every day, so noise was an issue for sleeping. Proximity to hot spots and the safe neighborhood for vacationers would surely outweigh the cons of this property. It was by far the best of all the options we explored, and the owner was very accommodating."

"Four of us -- my wife, our 13-year-old daughter and my 90-year-old mother -- stayed in this fabulous home for a week. We all wished it could have been longer, and I'm confident we'll go back. The house is spacious, clean, comfortable, well appointed and perfectly situated to make the most of the fabulous views. It had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. We ate many meals outside on the deck, watching the wildlife and the boats. The sunsets were sublime. On most days we'd watch a seal or two playing in the water. Several times we saw a ramp of otters as dusk fell. And on the last night we saw orcas! (We were grateful for the powerful binoculars set up in the living room.) Pure magic."

"Our stay at the suite was better than we expected. The suite is clean and well maintained and the local wine, flowers and chocolates were appreciated. The location is great with lots of available parking. Please don't let the small kitchenette put you off, it is very efficient and stocked with everything you need to be fully self sufficient. The gardens are beautiful and the fully unobstructed view is a dream, we spent a lot of time watching the boats go by. The local Thrifty Foods has an excellent bakery, deli and meat department.
Sidney was itself a lovely surprise and warrants recognition as a desirable vacation spot in its own right. We had viewed this vacation as a trip to Victoria but enjoyed Sidney so much that we spent most of our time there. The extensive walking paths, excellent customer service and friendly people have us planning to return."

"This basement apartment is a gem located in the heart of Sidney within walking distance of eateries, bookstores and shopping. The apartment is bright, well appointed and cozy. If we ever need a place to stay again in Sidney, this apartment is the place."
