About Kristen and Karl Issel

Thank you for considering our beautiful home!

We are long time residents of Victoria and Sidney. We love to travel and spend as much time travelling to different parts of the world.

We have stayed in VRBO's over the years and love the move- in- and "feel like you're home" quality. With all the conveniences of sleeping in a comfortable bed, a full kitchen to prepare healthy meals, washer/dryer and space to spread out, VRBO's have made our travel experiences so much more memorable. We've even met some very good friends as a result of meeting our neighbours in some places.

We want to spread that welcoming feeling and invite you into our lovely condo to spend some quality time in Sidney by the Sea. Whether you are from North America, Europe, Australia, or Asia, you will love staying here as we make every effort to make your accommodations comfortable and pleasant.

Kristen and Karl Issel purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kristen and Karl Issel chose Sidney

We chose this property because of its location. We love living in Sidney for its proximity to the ocean, airport, ferries, and Victoria. We live a very active an healthy lifestyle as a result of living here. We walk everywhere and it has everything from popular children's parks to exciting and beautiful hiking and biking locales.

Sidney as a town, is bustling in the summer and a quaint quiet place in the winter. The community is active and has many celebrations throughout the year that can rival bigger city events. It is a place where you can find a quiet beach to dream or paint at and is abound with coffee shops and books stores to stimulate the mind.

The town has all amenities imaginable. All major Canadian banks are here, 3 large grocery stores, a multitude of ethnic an local cuisine. It has an award winning spa and an amazing recreation centre with pool, skating rinks (we won Hockeyville this year!:), fitness rooms and classes. There is an amazing market in the summer where local farmers on the Peninsula bring fresh fruits and vegetable as well as incredible arts and crafts of all sorts.

Sidney is safe! We couldn't imagine a better place to raise our daughter in. Sidney gets very quiet in the evenings as the shops close late afternoon to early evening. The local police station and fire is 3 blocks away. It is a popular retirement location as well as a place for boaters to spend the lovely summers.

What makes this condo unique

This home has probably of the best decks to watch the sunsets. There is an outdoor living room where you can lounge with a coffee in the morning or enjoy a book and a glass of wine in the early evening. We have loved decorating our condo into a comfortable and stylish home and would love to have you come and enjoy.

very well appointed, a gem of Sidney

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late and were very pleased with this beautiful condo. It was very quiet so we had a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed and woke to find coffee in the cupboard for the coffee maker. Nice touch. This condo is close to shops so we hardly used our rental car. The patio was a nice bonus to watch the planes from the nearby airport. (when the windows were closed we were not bothered by the noise one bit) All in all this luxury get away had everything we needed for a little holiday. So happy to have found it! Thanks for everything, we will definitely be back.

This 1 bedroom sleeps up to 4 with a new comfortable queen bed and queen sofa bed in the living room. Parking is available as well as 2 bicycles with helmets for use and beach gear.

Outdoor activity abounds. In the summer there is the popular Thursday night market from 4:30- 8:30. Beacon Avenue transforms into a market paradise with local fresh fruits and vegetables (many organic), great music from our local talent, food options for dinner, local arts, crafts and clothing. Don't miss out on the amazing Salmon Burgers!

Sidney spit is a short ferry ride away and has probably some of the best sand beach on Vancouver Island. Catch the ferry over every hour on the hour and be sure to pack water, a picnic and sunscreen! For avid boaters, there are more marinas per capita in Sidney than anywhere else in Canada.

If you want to venture to Butchart gardens or into Victoria inner harbour, the bus stop to these popular destinations is one block west from the condo. You can sit on the top of our double decker buses and enjoy the beautiful views into the city or to the gardens.

If you plan to travel further along, there is the Anacortes ferry to the USA 2 blocks away. The Swartz bay ferry terminal to Vancouver and other Gulf Islands is a 5 minute drive or a short bus ride (10 min). The Victoria International airport is a mere 10 minute taxi ride or drive.

Sidney by the Sea is a gem on Vancouver Island. Life here can't get any better!
