Salish Sea Beach House B&B Private & Oceanfront Sidney, British Columbia, Canada
Additional Location Information
Sidney BC is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island on the Saanich Peninsula - just a 20 minute drive from downtown Victoria. Sidney is home to the Sidney/Anacortes Ferry Terminal and is just minutes from the Victoria International Airport and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal. Sidney is a year-round tourist destination with 3.6 kilometres of waterfront and a bustling downtown core.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Saanich Peninsula is located north of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. It is bounded by the Saanich Inlet on the west, and various straits of the Gulf of Georgia on the east, chiefly Haro Strait. Its name in the Saanich dialect, WSANEC, means "raised up" (where meaning the people, that term means "emerging people). The exact southern boundary of what is referred to as the "Saanich Peninsula" is somewhat fluid in local parlance.
Lying in the rain shadow of both the Vancouver Island Ranges and the Olympic Mountains, the Saanich Peninsula is the driest part of Vancouver Island. The driest recording station in the provincial capital city of Victoria averages only 635 millimetres (25 in) of precipitation annually. Precipitation increases from east to west, and from south to north.
Many different kinds of bedrock underlie the peninsula. Sandstone is common at the northern end. Granodiorite crops out in many northern and central areas. Amphibolite, diorite, gabbro and quartz diorite are common in the south. Smaller areas of andesite, basalt, chert, dacite and limestone are also found.
The region is the historical homeland of certain Coast Salish peoples. Several Indian Reserves] are located on the peninsula, predominantly along the shore of Saanich Inlet. Early European settlers arrived in the mid-nineteenth century, pursuing mainly resource-based economic activities such as logging, fishing, and â€” most notably â€” agriculture. The peninsula is home to the oldest agricultural exhibition in Western Canada, the Saanich Fair, sponsored by the North and South Saanich Agricultural Society. In more recent decades, residential and commercial development has become widespread on the peninsula, although provincial law protects much of the region's farmland from rezoning. The peninsula is also home to many wilderness parks, mostly on its southwest. The largest of these is Gowlland Tod Regional Park.
The natural flora of the region include mixed forests of Douglas fir, Western red cedar, hemlock, arbutus, Garry oak, and manzanita. The ground cover includes snowberry, Oregon-grape, salal, sword fern, trillium, and fawn lily. The peninsula is characterized by rolling hills and numerous freshwater ponds and lakes. Notable natural features of the Saanich Peninsula include Elk Lake, Beaver Lake, Mount Newton, Bear Hill, Tod Inlet, Mount Finlayson, Prospect Lake, Durrance Lake, and Mount Work. Many of these features are protected in regional and municipal parks. The peninsula is also the location of the Swartz Bay terminal of the BC Ferry Corporation, the Victoria International Airport, the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, and Butchart Gardens.
The following municipalities are located on the peninsula of Greater Victoria/Capital Regional District/(CRD):
Central Saanich (containing the villages of Brentwood Bay and Saanichton)
Highlands (the southwestern part)
Saanich (its northern portions)

This is the most beautiful house I've ever had the opportunity staying in. It's in the perfect location - whether you're looking to find local restaurants and boutiques or looking to explore the greener side of your trip! The house is on a gorgeous property with an amazing private beach and garden. Exquisitely peaceful - no city noise or pollution.
The inside is stunning. The kitchen and bathroom are beautiful, extremely clean, and had everything we needed. The bed is the perfect amount of firm and soft (coming from somebody with chronic back pain!) and is so wonderful to wake up in. The living room is lovely, the couch can turn into a pull out and it has a great sized flat screen tv. The lights have a dimmer which was perfect for me later in the evening. Everything you need is in the house. The inside of the B&B; is absolutely immaculate, comfortable, and very welcoming.
Shelley is a fantastic host, and has wonderful neighbors. The overall community is adorable and almost dreamlike. You feel very welcomed and very safe here. And again its in a very accessible location whether it be by boat, plane, car, or just getting to the store. And if you're looking for takeout one night I'd highly suggest Mariners Pizza! Perfect prices, great service, and they'll deliver!
Well Miss Jordan I can't wait for you to come back here too! It was an absolute PLEASURE to have you stay and thank you for such a STELLAR review! See you soon!

“Beautifully appointed sea side serenity!”

The beach house is absolutely beautiful! The B&B; suite retains much of it's original rustic charm with the large natual log columns and brick, then absolutely beautifully appointed modern decor to complete the warm welcome feel of this suite.
Shelly will do nothing but spoil you while you stay in this little peace of west coast paradise. Take a stroll through the old school english style gardens and pathways in the rear of the Beach House. This is absolutely enchanting . . . and . . . if you look very very closely you may be one of the lucky ones to catch a glimpse of the fairies that live in the wood. If the suite and gardens aren't enough to relax your weary body then stroll across the street to Salish Sea Beach House's private little piece of the sea, for a stroll down the beach where Shelly hunts for "Sea Glass". I can't say enough about how absolutely beautiful this B&B; location is, how relaxing you will find it, and how wonderfully Shelly will take care of your needs.
How kind!! I think it is just because I have such fabulous guests that make this all the better! Looking forward to your return and I hope it's sooner than later!

I have stayed at the Salish Sea Beach house several times as a guest and have also known Shelley Lewis, the owner, for many years.
Shelley herself is a good reason for anyone to stay here-warmth, generosity, attentiveness and a huge laugh that fills a room keep the energy light and positive. She is also intuitive to the need and request for personal space and calm.
The suite is exquisite and tasteful, the morning sun fills the big windows that overlook the beach and endless skies. Just mention beach glass and you have a project and a knowledgeable guide for a shoreline walk.
Beautiful, clean, tastefully and carefully set up to fill every possible need...truly a lovely experience.
