The yard is shared with the upstairs suite and the laundry room is shared as well (only available for stays of 5 days or longer). Propane Weber BBQ is also available for your use, but is also shared with upstairs guests. Please note: you may hear moderate road noise

in the yard during peak times of times of day.

Large patio has a dining table with four chairs and umbrella. There are also lawn chairs and a picnic table for soaking up the sun in the yard :-) Beach towels and cooler are available if needed!

Interaction with Guests:

I am very rarely home. I like to leave my guests in peace, but am available at any time should you need me! Sometimes I live in the suite upstairs, but when it's rented I stay somewhere else. Happy to accommodate you in any way I can!

House Rules:

This is a non-smoking property, including the yard. NO EXCEPTIONS! There are guests in the suite upstairs at various times, so please respect that the property is shared.

About Shannon

I love to travel, but I rarely have the time for it! I work a lot. I have an enormous bucket list of places to work my way through. I love meeting new people and I thoroughly enjoy hosting travelers in my home. I am very outdoorsy and active, but I also love sitting down to read a good book or watch some TV.

Shannon purchased this house in 2011

Why Shannon chose North Saanich

My home is in the heart of North Saanich. It's super easy to zip onto the highway and get to downtown Victoria, or head into the quaint Town of Sidney for some awesome restaurants, local shopping and a waterfront stroll. My yard is huge and the house is just minutes to the ocean. I have an orchard with apples, plums and pears, as well as herb and veggies gardens, strawberries and raspberries. Makes it easy to enjoy local eats in the spring and summer! Tons of farms nearby for all the extra fruit and veg that I don't have :-)

What makes this house unique

I'm a 2 minute drive or 20 minute walk to Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse, and 15 minutes from any winery on the Peninsula and Butchart Gardens. I'm just 5 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from Sidney, and 15 minutes to the ferry terminal. Dean Park is a 5 minute drive up the hill and has amazing hiking trails and a gorgeous viewpoint! Lots of farms nearby to get fresh produce all year round. 25 minute drive to downtown Victoria.

Great location - nicely renovated - friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay! Shannon was very friendly and was always available for any questions that we had. Had everything we needed, lot of room and really well thought out modern interior. Nice to be able to sit on the back patio with a glass of local wine and beer. Look forward to our next stay (without kids LOL).

Good location for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Shanon's place. Everything was well maintained and clean. The property was easy to find, and well located for our half Iron Man stay. Sydney was wonderful. I am glad we stayed away from the busy Victoria. It is close to wineries and Buchardt Gardens. We would stay again.

Clean, pleasant and comfortable but close to the highway and a bit noisy outside

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and comfortable, Shannon was responsive to our problems. the yard was lovely but noisy because of the highway. The neighbourhood was quiet with plenty of parks for walking. Islandview Beach is just down the road and well worth going to.

Old but redone inside

  • 3 of 5

Shannon was very friendly and accommodating. She put a bench out in the sun for us. The place is a basement suite but not what I would call luxury. There was plenty of room to sleep four but only sitting in the living room for three. The living room furniture needs to be replaced. The high chairs and counter for eating is not the best for seniors. However, there were lots of dishes, utensils. It was nice to have laundry facilities. No TSN for sports lovers. Very noisy in the back yard because of nearby traffic.

Location was excellent for us!

Owner's Response: Hi Don. Thank you for your feedback. My listing does make note of the potential for road noise at peak times of day, and my listing photos show all of the spaces in the suite, including the furniture options in the living room and kitchen area. I will be sure to inspect the furniture to see what, if anything, needs to be replaced already, and will certainly look into getting TSN for sports lovers. I'm very sorry to hear you were displeased with the accommodations, especially when you seemed so happy when I met you both in person throughout your stay and I very accurately described and pictured everything in the listing details.
