About Scott and Mary Alice

We started coming to the Island over 6 years ago and with each visit fell more and more in-love with it.

Scott and Mary Alice purchased this Apartment in 2012

Why Scott and Mary Alice chose Sidney

Mary Alice had a strong visceral reaction to the Lochside ocean walkway and said ' This is it !!!' So, here we are. The Lochside beach walkway is one of the longest, private and most beautiful stretches of oceanfront on the Island.

What makes this Apartment unique

Ever been crabbing? Sidney and Sidney Pier (500 meters away ) is one of the best places to catch large red rock crabs. There are Dungeness crabs too. Just lower your crab trap off the pier, tie it off and come back in a couple of hours. Other than crabbing, the fishing in Sidney is quite decent ... you may be able to catch some good-sized soles right from the pier.

A short stroll in either direction is beach access, waterfront walkways, art galleries, bookstores, unique shops, wildlife excursions, World Class aquarium (Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre), Sidney Museum, Saanich Peninsula Community Arts Council Gallery in Tulista Park, great restaurants and more.

Sidney Spit is a popular family destination with its long sandy beach, bird and marine life providing lots to explore.

                                                                      With the fully equipped kitchen, I was able to cook almost everything I wanted to cook.

                                                                      Diana N.

We were however disappointed to find out that there was no hot tub as was indicated in the VRBO add. There was some confusion as well with check in as the app said that unless other arrangements are needed the owners meets you there at 4 pm on check in day. We arrived and there was no one there and we had no code for the lock box. We made a few calls before reaching an owner. Minor details were that the bbq tank and fire pit propane tanks were empty and needed refilling also no blow dryer in the condo. Also had to call to regarding getting our damage deposit back. Everything worked out however there was just some inconveniences. FYI also in the flight path of the Victoria airport.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

We had to remove our SoftTub earlier in the summer 1) for maintenance and 2) because Guests were using it without paying the slight up-charge for it. We had removed it from our VRBO description but perhaps you had seen it much earlier.

                                                                      We typically do NOT check guests in as they come at all times of the night. We provide a lockbox on the Suite door for self check-in as I described in my eMail to you prior to your arrival.

                                                                      In any event, thanks for staying. We don't handle any of the financial arrangements about deposits etc. That is all handled by VRBO. We just let them know if there is any damage.

                                                                      Thanks,
