Great place in a great location with great owners

  • 5 of 5

This was the fifth year that we have stayed at Tony and Sandy's place . The location is very quiet and yet close to everything so that we don't need a car rental. The apartment is very well equipped and the owners very helpful.

Spacious, and most comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy and Tony are the most gracious of hosts. They have thought of every amenity possible to insure a most wonderful stay in beautiful Sidney. The apt. is in a perfect location to enjoy the town, waterways, and all travel routes.

I had the best of times, and my only dilemma is deciding when I might return!😊

Wonderful Hosts, Great Rental

  • 4 of 5

Exceptional hosts Sandy and Tony are warm, welcoming, and couldn't be more helpful. They are easy to communicate with and very prompt in responding to inquiries. The property description is accurate -- if somewhat understated. The unit is exceptionally clean and well maintained. It is also appointed very well. We stayed for 5 days and lacked nothing! We enjoyed having a full kitchen with everything we needed.

The bed (and even the hide-a-bed) are comfortable and have nice quality linens. The towels and provided toiletries are nice. The ensuite laundry was very helpful (we were on Vancouver Island for a couple of weeks and needed to do laundry half way through the trip).

The location is very convenient, in a nice Sidney neighborhood, and has a lovely yard. The only reason we didn't give this rental 5 stars is its location under the landing/take-off pattern of the airport. While we were staying there the morning disruption started about 6 and went well into the evening. It helps to close the windows -- but doesn't eliminate the noise.

That said we plan on and look forward to staying with Sandy and Tony again.

A wonderful home from home with everything to make your stay an enjoyable one.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 19 days in Tony and Sandy's apartment. So good we didn't want to go home! Everything was provided to make our stay a most comfortable one. It was very well situated close to town centre and shops, cafes and restaurants. Close to the shore line and lovely walks. Very close to the San Juan Ferry and bus stops for Victoria, Butchart Gardens and for the ferry to Vancouver and Nanaimo.

A lovely kitchen to cook meals. Food shopping was easy and we were delighted with the choice of at least 3 large supermarkets. Eating out wasn't so expensive as it was in UK and plenty cafes for coffee and cake in the afternoon. Overall we had a great holiday and Tony and Sandy were lovely hosts. We will most certainly be back . On second thoughts I maybe shouldn't have written this review? I want to make sure they are not all booked up and always have space for us! But seriously we can honestly say best place ever!

Great place, location and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful little suite for 2 weeks. It was very clean, modern and had a full kitchen with everything needed for cooking. The LOCATION was fabulous! I walked the ocean paths everyday, which was a two minute walk away from house. Another two minute walk to downtown. Groceries are a five minute walk away! I got many bike rides in while there. You can connect to the Lochside Trail in less the a minute! Owners, Tony and Sandy were great hosts and able to help with any questions or needs. I highly recommend this rental and will be returning myself one day! Thanks again Tony and Sandy!

About Sandy and Tony

We are a professional working couple with grown children. We love to travel and Sandy works as a home based travel agent when she is not at her government job. We enjoy meeting our lovely guests and sharing our beautiful town and island.

Sandy and Tony purchased this studio in 2007

What makes this studio unique

Being close to the ocean and the lovely walking trail by the beach is a bonus. Explore the new Ocean Discovery Center and visit many top quality shops and services within walking distance. We even have a small friendly movie theatre in our town that shows first run movies and cultural events! We are located on a residential street so you will become part of our local neighbourhood. You are only a short drive from top quality visitor attractions like world renownd Butchart Gardens and the fabulous BC Museum of Natural History. If you like hiking, we are near many beautiful nature trails for your enjoyment, there is something for everyone! We will assist you in finding activities that will make your stay memorable. You will love the mild coastal weather of Sidney by the Sea!
