“Lovely surprise, more than expected”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I just spent three days at this special place with my two sisters. It was a very comfortable suite stocked with almost everything one might need. The view was beautiful with beach access as an added attraction. Our hostess Shelley was very hospitable. The beach house is located just about a mile from downtown Sydney which I feel is a plus as it is quiet and has easy access to a lovely walking path along the waterfront which we enjoyed daily. I would definitely book again and would recommend it to my friends.

“Creme De La Creme- Look no further for the best accommodations near Victoria”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This hidden gem is what you've been looking for. My partner and I had an AMAZING stay at Shelley's beach house. The suite is better than described- but the property itself is even better. Beach front, a giant garden oasis out back- pure relaxation. This is a place that you'll never want to leave.

LGBTQ friendly. We'll definitely be back.

“Charming place in a great location”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

I want to emphasize the most important amenities of this place and why I rated it as 5.
1. Location -- close to the Anacortes ferry to come and go back to the US, next to downtown Sidney, with the sea wall, restaurants, other things. 4 miles from Schwartz Bay terminal to visit Gulf Islands, or 15 miles to drive to Victoria.
2. The place itself is very charming and has a beach access on the other side of the road. In addition, the place had everything you need: full kitchen, coffeemaker, fridge, a computer, TV with cable and Netflix, other things.
3. The owner was always available to answer questions, give advice, and address any of your needs. She picks up the phone whenever you call. She was very nice and very helpful. She actually had food for us in the kitchen when we arrived, having kids in mind, She also provided coffee, tea and other things there for guests.
It was a nice vacation, good memories – we haven’t had one like that for a long period of time. We got there for Canadian Independence Day and saw a big crowd in the downtown. It was very lively time with street market, music, fireworks.

Thank you for the wonderful review!!!! I enjoyed having your family here very much. You were all very respectful of my home and besides you really liked my dog! ( What is better than that! ) I'm glad so much was going on with Canada Day it's nice that we can see the fireworks from here!
I am really looking forward to your return!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We would return in a heartbeat! My 2 sisters & I were looking for a place to spend our 1st sister getaway. Decided on a Victoria area trip, as we wanted to tour the Butchart gardens. Did not want to do the hotel scene, so did lots of searching for the perfect place to stay, & after much searching decided that Salish Sea Beach House was what we were looking for, & it surely turned out to be more than perfect! Shelly was more than amazing! Picked us up at the airport, helped with getting us a rental call with ph calls, & transporting us to pick it up, & take it back. Provided us with wonderful breakfast foods, & more! WiFi, movies, games, even umbrellas which we thankfully did not need to use! Wonderful view, & short distance to beach. We actually walked along beach walkway to Into Sidney, which had wonderful eating & shopping! Thanks to a tip from Shelly, we even found a treasure of sea on the beach shore. We are so ready to plan a other trip, & if you will have us Shelly, we will be back!!!! Thank You! Nancy, Glenda, & Melva

“A sweet sanctuary form every day worries”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This place is about as welcoming as it gets. The suite is beautifully decorated, comfy, warm and fully set up with a kitchen, wi-fi and T.V. You look out onto the Salish Sea and the beachfront is beautiful. We were there in early October, the weather was lovely but cool. No weather for swimming but the beachfront walk into Sidney was a treat. Sidney is a wonderful little place on the water, shops galore, restaurants and very friendly folks. About a 20 minute stroll to downtown.
Our host Shelley is as friendly, helpful and accommodating as one could wish for. Always ready with helpful advise, a ride somewhere or just a chat she really made us feel welcome.
The garden out back is amazing, a real paradise artfully decorated and mysterious. A perfect place to forget the world outside.
This place is first class and will visit again in the near future.
