Overview

About the property

Lower Suite in Home: Bedroom w/Queen & Bunks, Livingroom w/Queen Sofa bed

BRAND NEW in 2012: 'Home Suite Home' in Sidney by the Sea.

*** This is a NO SMOKING property. We kindly request that smokers do not inquire.***

Wake up to sunshine streaming through the front windows. Relax all day on your private South-West facing patio, or take a five-minute stroll to the nearest beach.

Explore the many boutique shops on Beacon Avenue, a 20 minute walk. Discover Sidney's many book stores and coffee shops as well!

Practise your culinary skills in the well-appointed custom kitchen, order in, or dash out to one of many local and delicious restaurants for dinner.

Spend your evenings soaking under the stars in the hot tub, or have a candle-light bath in the deep soaker tub... step out onto heated tile floors in the bathroom.

Finish your day by snuggling into bed, enjoying a great nights' sleep on a 5-star luxury hotel mattress set in a gorgeous sleigh bed.

If you packed light or encountered inclement weather and would like to do some laundry, our laundry room is nearby, and we're happy to share!

A propane fire-pit and trampoline are available for sharing in the back yard! Having raised our own children in the area, we can recommend some really neat places to visit with the little or mid-sized ones - just let us know and we'll help with the fun!

Whatever your style, we know you will find Sidney a lovely place to visit, and we trust that you will find this accommodation to be your 'Home Suite Home' while you're here.

COMPLIMENTARY snacks are provided in the pantry, and breakfast items for several days' worth of breakfasts are provided in the fridge.

Note: Although the suite theoretically has sleeping space for up to six (queen bed, queen sofa bed, & two little bunks), the space is best suited to two adults and two small children, OR two adults and an additional adult or two if just for a short period. The couch sits three. Two bar chairs are in the suite, with two more available upon request. Ottoman stools and extra camp-style chairs are also available upon request. It's all about versatility :-)

Awesome place to be at

  • 5 of 5

Nice floor plan, upgrades, and have every little thing u need specially in the kitchen. Owner also left some snacks and food in the refrigerator. She was a phone call away when needed. Her kids were also very helpful. She was also a guide for us for the trip, gave lot of good suggestions. Very nice and quite neighborhood. I will love to go back in future. Highly recommend.

Absolutely Loved Our Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week and a half and absolutely loved everything about the place. It was so clean and quiet so it made it very relaxing when we were there. The town of Sidney is beautiful and we would both love to come back there again some day.

Book it and enjoy your stay

  • 5 of 5

My recent stay with my family at Tara’s place is a great satisfaction. The place I will say not clean but super clean and spotless. When you go there you feel like you are staying in a brand-new unit. Very quiet, nice neighborhood, lovely nature, kind, and friendly treatment by the owner. “You name it” everything you need is there. This is the first time I visited Victoria and it was my first experience with VRBO , I will go back and stay there during my next visit also. Any one booking Tara’s place can close the eyes and walk in without any worries and you will get the value for the money and service. If the place is vacant book it because you do not want to miss the good place to stay clean and safe.
