                                                                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.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                It is always wonderful to see you return every year and make our guest suite your home away from home. Thank you for your kind words and see you next year, lets hope for an early spring!

                                                                Spacious, and most comfortable!

                                                                Martha L.

                                                                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

                                                                Harvey F.

                                                                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.

                                                                Close to beach and walking trails, within a block of restaurants, groceries stores, coffee shops and lovely boutique shops.
