For those comfortable on the water, two sit-on-top kayaks are available to explore the sheltered bay.

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.

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.
