About Darren Tomlin

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, I started my career with the Banff Springs Hotel in my early 20's. I then worked at the Gastof Post Hotel in Lech, Austria, a small town in the Arlberg ski region. A few years later, I opened Peaks Lodge, a mountain retreat and restaurant in Revelstoke, BC. I spent 10 years taking guests into the back-country on skiing and snowmobile tours.

My strong passion for the ocean brought me back to the Island. I then decided to open The Corbett Adventuee Guest House. I chose to bring fun and work together. Sharing my favorite hobbies with the house guests, activities such as bicycling, sailing, kayaking, fishing and crabbing are offered to anyone interested. Many other attractions and services are available in the nearby area. I strive to ensure that my guests have a wonderful stay at the Corbett Guest House and an exciting visit to our beautiful town, “Sidney by the Sea.” Looking forward to meet new comers or welcoming back regulars!

Darren Tomlin purchased this house in 2001

Fantastic suite with all of the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely suite which is bright and spotlessly clean located in a central area which was perfect for morning walks and beachcombing! The bikes were a bonus and well used by the 6 of us!

We will definitely stay again!

Clean and well Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the three bedroom suite from Darrin for a family gathering to attend a family member's wedding. We needed the three bedrooms and we wanted a kitchen to prepare meals, as we like to cook. It was absolutely perfect and so well stocked, we didn't lack for anything! Unfortunately for us, we were too busy to take Darrin up on a sail around Sidney, or to go kayaking or biking. All our family members really enjoyed Corbett House and we would not hesitate to recommend this place to others. Darrin is attentive but not hovering. We felt looked after but left to our own privacy and enjoyment of the property. Darrin's long experience in the hospitality industry really shows.

Clean, well furnished, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed three nights while we introduced our twin grandchildren to Canada. The neighborhood is quiet and low key, a perfect contrast to busy downtown Victoria where we spent one day. The house is also close to Butchart Gardens where we visited and watched the Saturday night fireworks. Darren has bicycles, kayaks, and standup paddle boards which we just didn't have time to use.

A very well-fitted out apartment in a lovely quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Darren's Corbett House accommodation had everything we could want. It was spacious, spotlessly clean and lovely and quiet.

Darren was very helpful re answering any of our queries, and we would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Fantastic Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best weekend trips my son and I have been on and it was because of the hospitality and location at Corbett House. The breakfasts were delicious and our suite was comfortable and clean with its own private patio. Darren was a wonderful host - picking us up from the airport, giving us a quick tour of Sidney to get our bearings along with hints regarding what to see/do in the area. There are bikes and kayaks available to use as well crab traps to use on the dock, (my son's favourite!). We also went sailing with Darren, the owner, and had a wonderful time.

The location is great - a couple of blocks from the beach as well as the main street. For those without a car, public transit is very close as well allowing you to explore Victoria or to take the ferry from Swartz Bay if you would like. We will definitely be going back!
