About the Property

Waterfront home close to everything, 2 Bedrooms + Media Bed/Room, 1.5 Bath

(For a video tour please see the video link button)
The Eagles Nest suite is the entire upper level (1400 sq ft) plus entrance foyer/office of this waterfront house. There is a large open living room with gas fireplace and 42 inch cable TV, sun room, three outdoor patios, two bedrooms (queen) and (double + twin), two bathrooms and a separate bedroom dedicated as media room with a queen sofa bed and 46 inch TV, Stereo etc. (kids and parents love this room away for TV down the hall from the living room)

The house is directly on the shore with calm and protected low bank waterfront. There is an expansive tidal flat that attracts the herons, eagles and seabirds while providing clamming and crabbing opportunities as well as ideal kayak launching. Stunning views of the ocean and Snow capped Mount Baker bring the outdoors in to the sun room, dining room, kitchen and living room

The house is equipped to make you feel at home, including libraries of music, videos and books as well as board games. For those comfortable on the water, two sit-on-top kayaks are available to explore the sheltered bay. Binoculars and a telescope are provided those enjoying morning coffee in the sun room overlooking the bay or for gazing at the night skies.

A spacious kitchen with attached barbecue deck allows for shared culinary productions and barbeque masters. Sit down dining area seating for 6 at the dining room table with enough settings for occasional overflow such as day visitors.

There are all the usual appliances, large and small for the gourmet cook. The Laundry Room was updated with large capacity Samsung appliances in 2014. The laundry and carport are shared with a one bedroom owners suite downstairs.

This special vacation home is intended for couples and families who enjoy a peaceful waterfront environment while also providing ready access to the activities and facilities of the quaint town of 'Sidney-by-the-Sea.'

Accommodation overview:

The house has two principal bedrooms with a third bedroom dedicated to be a media/TV room with 46 inch TV, stereo equipment and a queen sofa bed.

The master bedroom has queen bed with en-suite toilet/sink and large walk-in closet.

The second bedroom has two beds, one double/full size one single/twin

There are generally 8 sets of everything from bedding to cutlery on the assumption of a maximum occupancy of 8. The house will be best enjoyed by two couples or a couple with two children. It is always possible to entertain of course.

There is also an alternate queen sofa bed in the living room for those who like to arise early to the pink sunrise!!

Pets and smoking are not permitted.

There is one side of the double carport available for guest use and driveway parking for two guest cars.

Living areas:
A large open plan dining and living room looks out onto the water with large sofas (and another sofa bed). A large dining room table, 42 inch TV, stereo with iPod dock and a gas fireplace for seasonal use.

A favorite place in the house is the bright and airy Sun Room that opens onto the outside patio decks. A wonderful place for a morning coffee or lazy afternoon book or perhaps enjoying the wildlife through the high powered binoculars and telescopes provided. There is a CD / iPod player in the sun room.

Access and Travel Connections:

The house is located on Roberts Bay Bird Sanctuary which is about 1.8 Km from Sidney Town (20 minute walk) and 0.4 km along tree lined All Bay Road to several marinas, the upmarket Seaglass bistro, The Latch 4 star Italian restaurant, a coffee shop, corner store massage clinic etc

There is lots to do in Sidney town and the surrounding Saanich Peninsula. One of the favorites is whale watching

There is also the Shaw Ocean Discovery Center, Butchart Gardens, Muse Winery, Panorama Recreation Center and so many more..... the Town of Sidney website has many useful links.

Car: Recommended

The activities and recreational opportunities in the vicinity are simply too rich to list... in Sidney Town on 5th St there is a visitors information centre with information on wineries, equestrian farms, the galloping goose cycle path to Sooke and endless other opportunities. We will ensure that there a full complement of information brochures for you to peruse.

There are dozens of restaurants in the area and just 5 minutes peaceful walk away there are two 5 star restaurants up All Bay Road as well as a small bakery coffee shop and a convenience store.

The pedestrian friendly location of EaglesNest allows for family members to walk, ride, drive, bus or paddle as they like either together or independently.

Should you wish to travel to Victoria, the bus stops on Resthaven $2.50.. or to the ferry to Vancouver or the Gulf Islands for a day trip in the other direction.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1990

About: As a globe trotting family Eagles Nest was our choice in the world for our family home with Sidney and Victoria the friendly communities we chose to land in; like so many other like minded people. We have updated and equipped Eagles Nest for visitors to allow us to continue to share our wonderful piece of paradise.

Why Sidney, BC, Canada:
We love this location for the water, the wildlife (it is on the migratory seabird pathway) the walks along the shore and into town, the nearby marinas and restaurants for a morning breakfast walk... it is one of the most sheltered low bank waterfronts in the area and perfect for kayaking, clamming and just soaking up birds and otters of Roberts Bay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pink sunrises silhouette a distant snow capped Mount Baker and glints off duck trails across the mirrored waters of Roberts Bay bird sanctuary. Colorful kayakers launch nearby to explore Gulf Islands National park. Amble along tree lined All Bay road to coffee shops, corner store, massage therapists, fine dining and pubs intermingled with the marinas and yacht charters. Walk a mile or so the other way past the Thai and fish and chip cafe, the Library and Beacon Avenue shops and services.
