About Michele Mitchell & Andrew Mitchell

My name is Michele. All my life I have been involved with projects that I have designed myself. For much of this time I was a fashion designer having my own high end boutique. After some years as an interior designer with my own clients, I became a figurative sculptor after obtaining a university BFA as a mature student. My husband Andrew was professional civil engineer until he retired and now we work together mainly on large commission sculptures. I grew up in Quebec but have lived in different countries over the years, including England, Spain, Southern California and the west of Canada for the most part. I enjoy travelling, gardening, reading and meeting people of different backgrounds. We especially enjoy the time that we pass in our studio in Miraloma; it is our special quiet retreat place by the sea and we would like you to enjoy it also to refresh yourself.

Happy VRBO Users.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous. Very comfortable and clean. Michele is a very gracious hostess. The location is excellent - serene, quiet, and close to everything we wanted. Sidney itself is worth exploring. VRBO services have been reliable and helpful. All around, a good experience.

Beautiful property and lovely owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Sidney. Property is not even 10mins from the ferry, which after a long day of driving was nice to be able to get on the island and not have to drive any more. The property is beautiful and clean and the owners were lovely to deal with. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking to unwind.

It was clean but it didn’t meet all our needs.

  • 2 of 5

It does not have a full kitchen which I didn’t realize, no a/c and was very hot and stuffy. Since it was cool outside we were able to cool the place down by leaving the door open but had it been really hot outside would have been unbearable. Only 2 bath towels for 4 day stay & 1 tea towel in suite. Place was clean, very quiet and I liked the location. Very close to the ferry.

Owner's Response: We are taking our role as hosts for VRBO very seriously and try to give the best possible. The kitchen is well equipped with two under counter fridges also microwave, small oven, induction plate, toaster, kettle, coffee pot, rice maker, small George Foreman grill, pots and pans and a set of dishes for four people. Futhermore, there is a full kitchen on the main floor to be used by residents and guests.and a barbque on the terrace outside. All our guests have enjoyed the facilities. As the temperature has been getting warmer, we have now installed air conditioning in the suite to make sure that our guests are comfortable at all time. We provide a complete set of towels for each of our guests plus a basket of facecloths. Under the basin in the bathroom, we keep a good amount of towels, as extras for our guests. We care to give the best to our guests.

Our stay in 307, Miraloma

  • 4 of 5

Michele and Andrew were very welcoming hosts. The condo was very comfortable, very clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our two week stay in Sydney and Miraloma is a delightful place, excellent location and beautiful gardens. Sydney has many good restaurants, many marinas and great coastal walking.

Owner's Response: We have enjoyed very much having you as our guests. As soon as we met you we felt as if we had known you forever. You were so accommodating in every way and we could not have had more delightful guests. You get 10 out of 5 as far as we are concerned. We hope to see you some day again and we will keep in touch with you. We hope that you return home was great. Fondest regards, Andrew and Michele

What a Wonderful Find!

  • 5 of 5

..This property was a wonderful find for my wife and I..Top floor and top drawer! The building it's self is quite unique, in that the design and accents are extraordinary.. The view from the

veranda to the gardens below... and through the trees to the marina.. awesome!

..we came to Tsehum Harbor on our 26' boat, wanting to explore the outer islands and bays

in the gulf.. we had a difficult time leaving Miraloma each day! ..we just wanted to hang around the studio and listen to jazz on the veranda! ..and the Hosts are exceptional as well!

..a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Hello Mr and Mrs Sullivan, Although we did not have the pleasure to meet you, we can sense by your review that you have enjoyed Miraloma. Thank you for being so generous in describing your experience, it is very much appreciated. We are glad that you found Miraloma to be a special place too. We bought the suite in April because our son moved from Edmonton to Victoria. His wife had taken her first degree at the University of Victoria and had always wanted to go back there. They moved along with our only little grand daughther of 17 months. So now we can visit for long period as often as we can. We cannot believe that we found such a peaceful beautiful place to enjoy while visiting them. It must be wonderful to sail along to different places and stop where ever you wish. It sounds so ideal. We hope to have the pleasure to host you again some day. Best regards, Andrew and Michele Mitchell
