About Joyce Scott

My father built this home in 1939 and our whole family grew up here.

Joyce Scott purchased this house in 1939

Why Joyce Scott chose Sidney

Sidney is a beautiful town with everything you need within easy walking distance.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like a view of the ocean on a sunny day or during a winter storm. Carry the canoe across the front lawn and go for a paddle or just sit out and enjoy the view.

Magnificent Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully comfortable home that is spacious, with an open layout perfect for gatherings of family and friends. With large picture windows looking out onto the water, with a large lawn perfect for outdoor relaxing, and located a mere 10 minute walk to town, this is one of the best home rentals in Sidney that I've had the pleasure to experience.

The owners and family have provided everything you need in the house (the kitchen is fully supplied) , including use of kayaks and canoe. They were available to assist as needed and were very welcoming during my stay. I highly recommend this home.

Beautiful Sanctuary by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean family home right on the ocean with amazing views of Sidney Harbour and Mount Baker. Close to the town center with nearby shore walking path. Hosts were delightful and accommodating, and this was a wonderful spot for us to stay and enjoy peaceful moments while in town for a family celebration. We loved exploring the tide pools, watching the parades of Canada geese, paddling the kayaks, viewing sunrises, walking through the beautiful garden, and quiet moments

just looking at the scenery. This spot was special. Thank you for our stay and your warm welcome. J & N

House with a view

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 4 days, 4 adults and three children, 1. 4 1/2 and 5 yrs old, whilst we stayed on our boat at Sidney Marina. It was perfect for everyone. The view was fantastic. The house was ideal for the baby to run around and the elder girls played on the rocks and beach for hours. Nothing like the evenings on the grass looking over the water. The house is very well equipped and owners very helpful, willing to do everything to make your stay perfect. The proximity to the town and all the attractions was great.

Thank you for sharing your house. Helen and John

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. I remember spending many hours down on that same beach as a child, turning over rocks to find small crabs and catching little 'bullheads' in the tide pools. We're so glad your family has enjoyed our family home. (and beach).

This lovely family home is right on the ocean in beautiful Sidney-by-the Sea. Minutes from Victoria International airport, B.C.Ferries at Swartz Bay as well as Anacortes ferry to Washington State. Visit Butchart Gardens and Butterfly World. Go whale watching, diving, snorkeling, golfing, sailing. Wonderful Thursday night market during the summer. Visit beautiful Victoria, only a 20 minute drive from home. The possibilities are endless.
