We found the property very homey

  • 4 of 5

We were exceptionally pleased with the cleanliness of the property and the friendliness of the owners. The place is within easy walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants,shops, and the coast. A few more TV channels would be nice for the evenings. We had a very pleasant stay

Great place in a great location with great owners

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spacious, and most comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.
