We are situated on an acre of private woodland on the scenic Saanich Peninsula. We are walking distance from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal gateway to the Gulf Islands. Canoe Cove with it's coffee shop and The Stonehouse Restaurant and Pub is also walking distance.

The charming seaside town of Sidney with its Ocean Discovery Centre, Bowling Alley, Cinema, wide range of restaurants and shopping is just minutes away. Take an evening stroll down the pier or visit the street market on summer Thursday evenings. Whale watching trips depart twice a day in the summer months. Sidney Spit is easily accessible by water-taxi - take a picnic and enjoy the unspoilt beaches.

Victoria is just a short drive away (or catch the express bus from the ferry terminal). Hop around the scenic inner harbour using the tug-boat ferries and sample Barbs Fish & Chips in James Bay. The Imax and BC Museum are close by. You can take tea at The Empress or breakfast at The Legislature. Explore Market Square for great shopping and be sure to walk down Fan-Tan Alley to Chinatown.

Butchart Gardens (with Saturday night fireworks throughout the summer)

and the Butterfly Gardens are a 20 minute drive away and both offer year-round beauty.

Closer to home, The Muse Winery and Sea-Cider Farm offer wonderful views and relaxed tastings.

For those who like to keep fit - Panorama Recreation Centre offers swimming, gym, seasonal skating, tennis and squash - plus a great childrens playground outside.

Brentwood Bay offers more dining opportunities, access to the Mill Bay Ferry and kayak and paddleboard rental facilities.

Being located on the Peninsula we are surrounded by ocean and dozens of uncrowded beaches. You can be as busy or relaxed as you choose.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Darren & Dina met in 2001 when Dina worked as a Flight Attendant for British Midland International (based at London Heathrow) and Darren for Air Canada Jazz Cargo (based in Calgary AB). Having travelled extensively, they knew that Victoria BC was a beautiful place to settle and raise a family. They were blessed with their daughter Brooke in 2004 and converted an used area in their home into a B&B studio so that Dina could be a stay-at-home Mom and others could enjoy this tranquil area of natural beauty with their own temporary home away from home. Their guest book bears testament to the comfort of the studio and the diversity of local attractions. Brookhaven offers the best of British and Canadian hospitality and the privacy to come and go as you please. Brooke is now 11 and loves to show off her 'French immersion' skills with our multi-national guests. The beautiful sea-life nearby has inspired her to be a marine biologist and conservationist in adult life. Darren is employed at Victoria International Airport and Dina works part-time as a Cosmetician at a local Pharmacy.

Why the Owner Chose North Saanich, BC, Canada:
This modern home is set in it's own acre of woodland. It has tidal ocean views and is set back in a high location to afford privacy. We still love to travel so close proximity to the ferry and airport is important. Sidney is a great place to raise a family and the population is mature and friendly. Every season has something special to offer and we feel comfortable and safe here.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Being surrounded by ocean is wonderful. Little remote beaches and walking trails are tucked away to explore. The July 1st Canada & Christmas Parades are spectacular for such a small community. The Thursday Street summer market is also a treat all summer long. Our home is great in that each part of it has great privacy,
