Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have lived on the Saanich Peninsula Since 1999 and have recently moved to Sidney to experience it's many charms. Both Barb and Mike can help you find whatever you are looking for in the area and are always glad to share Sidney and the Saanich Pennisula's many attractions! This area is truely a wonderful treasure on the west coast. We both have FRENCH as a second language and welcome the opportunity to practice speaking it whenever we can!

Why the Owner Chose Sidney, BC, Canada:
We first relocated to Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island from Ottawa, ON in 1999 with the intention of giving our three boys a different living experience in another part of Canada. We’ve never turned back. The West Coast life style is the perfect fit for our family. As the boys grew up and started moving out, we decided to relocate from our suburban home in Brentwood to the vibrant small coastal town of Sidney-by-the-Sea. This wonderful friendly sea side town offers everything at your finger tips. We are truly enjoying the life style change and the absolute convenience this location provides us and for the many guests that we are hosting here at Sidney Mews. Let us share with you the many delightful attractions, Sidney, the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria have to offer. Come, stay and explore this slice of paradise that we have come to love. Like us, you’ll be glad you did! Barbara and Mike

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We both enjoy the opportunity to speak FRENCH and enjoy practicing the second language whenever we get the chance with people we meet. Sidney Mews has an ideal Location, centrally located in Town yet away from the major bustle! You can even see the water at the end of our street. Best of Both Worlds!!
