About the property

Lovely Private 1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Suite. Sleeps 2

Much care has been taken to design a suite that will give guests a holiday experience balanced with the conveniences of home.

We are across the street from a historic little neighbourhood church, the over 100 year old st. Andrews.

Perfectly located 2 blocks from town centre: shops, movie theatre, shaw ocean discovery centre, excellent restaurants and, also, 3 grocery stores to provide all of the ingredients you'll need to cook your favourite dishes during your stay.

2 blocks from the ocean & the sidney-anecortes washington state ferry terminal,

a short 9 min drive to either the victoria international airport/ yyj or the swartz bay bc ferry terminal and excellent bc transit service to victoria & butchart gardens.

Sidney is also home to the mary winspear centre/ charlie white theatre, which is known as one of the premier community performance theatres in the province. See website for shows & concerts.

The accommodation provides 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, equipped kitchen and a private laundry room. As a comfortable nights sleep is an utmost priority, we have chosen a queen size serta mattress from the iseries hybrid sleep system, egyptian cotton sheets, firm & soft pillows, and a silk duvet.

If you're planning on sidney as your vacation destination, we are looking forward to your stay. We welcome snowbirds.

About LeeAnne Franke

I have lived in Sidney for 33 years. My husband & I both attended the local high school and, after graduating, we took many opportunities to travel together. It was an extra special experience to be guests in peoples homes. Now, after being married and staying closer to home, we thought it would be fitting to offer other travelers a unique place to stay.

Why LeeAnne Franke chose Sidney

Even after returning from many lovely travel destinations, my husband & I appreciated Sidney more & more. We feel like we are holidays in our own town. We enjoy taking care of our home. The location of our house could not be more perfect for us, as it is just steps from everything we need.

What makes this apartment unique

One day, an artist came to our front door and asked if she could paint a picture of our house. She said she enjoyed the character, design & details of our home's exterior. We thought it would be the perfect image to select for our listing.

A home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

April 11 - May 16, 2018, these past five weeks at T House - not only the quality of furnishings/appliances, but also the minute details including information that would enrich any stay, all combined makes this venue truly a 'home-away-from-home.' Central yet in a quiet part of Sidney; immaculate upkeep; conscientious management. Value in every sense! Thank you, LeeAnne.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of December in this well maintained and quiet suite. The location was perfect - two blocks from downtown as well as the Salish Sea walk. LeeAnne and Darren were gracious hosts and their attention to detail was evident throughout. We appreciated the very comfortable bed, the fresh linens, the well equipped kitchen, and the washed and dryer. It provided us with a welcoming and good feeling - a home away from home. We look forward to our next stay with LeeAnne and Darren.

Wonderful accommodation in Sidney

  • 5 of 5

The location made walking to town, the walks along the seawall, every kind of shopping and public transit to ferry and downtown Victoria fun and easy. Must also mention the cafes, restaurants, vegan, vegetarian, organic options at these and Mother Earth's grocery within a quick walk.

The beautiful suite had everything I could want or need and more. Spotless clean, airy and convenient. I highly recommend this property.

Thank you for a relaxing stay in your beautiful home!

We stayed at the cozy 'T' house for 10 days. LeeAnne and Darren are wonderful hosts. The place was immaculately clean with many small touches that made our stay wonderful and amazing, so comfortable and pleasant. We will definitely stay here again if we return. Thank you for a lovely time!
