Seagulls Loft is truly a home away from home. With stunning views of the Gulf Islands, ocean and mountains, this authentic Tudor-styled house has a warmth about it that will make you feel at home as soon as you step through the front door. Unique features such as a central circular fireplace, furnishings made from original African Rhodesian teak railway ties and a spacious and bright master suite located in the loft add to the character of the home.

On a sunny lot, Seagulls Loft boasts a garden with indigenous shrubbery which attracts an abundance of wonderful bird life. The living room is bright and cozy with views of the the ocean, a wood burning circular fireplace and a bar. The sundeck off the living room is an excellent spot to view both the gardens, ocean and mountains. Through the formal dining room, you will find a large and spacious kitchen with a breakfast nook that provides you with ample views of the garden and a great spot to watch the birds come and go. A bedroom with a double size bed and a powder room finish off the main level.

Continuing upstairs to the very top floor, you are met with the open, bright and cheery master suite providing views of the ocean and mountains that can be viewed when lying in bed or sitting in the private sun room. The ensuite is both relaxing and spacious with a separate shower and tub.

The lower level of the home features one bedroom with an ensuite. The laundry facilities are also located on the lower floor.

The large lot is surrounded by gardens and towering trees. A flat sunny yard is a great spot to play in or just relax and enjoy your surroundings. There is a beach access located at the rear of the yard, however, it is incredibly steep and should only be used by older children and adults.

The beach located at the bottom of the ladder is rocky but could serve as a kayak launch. The nearest public beach access is just 2 kms away and is a secluded sandy beach. You can also sit and enjoy the sailing boats and yachts as they head out for a day on the water from one of many marinas close by.

On the way back you can call in to Canoe Cove Cafe or Stonehouse restaurant both of which come highly recommended by the locals. Sidney is only 5 minutes drive away or you can head in the opposite direction from Sidney, along Lands End road, towards Deep Cove, and enjoy a most beautiful drive as the road twists and turns through a forested area, passing beautiful homes and catching glimpses of the ocean and islands along the way. Deep Cove market is not to be missed in the summer months, where the locals gather to sell their produce.

Seagull's Loft is the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and treat yourself to a memorable getaway in comfort and style. Make Seagull's Loft your next stay when visiting Victoria!

What Our Guests
Say About Seagulls Loft

positive

great location, condition. Recommend

Marcel A.

Family get-together at its best

The space was perfect for our big family. Two of our kids came with their spouses and one with a 11 year old son. We gave the family the master suite...perfectly private. The only complaint was the oven and that was self-cleaning was pretty bad. To cook in something like that was not so appealing. I gave it a bit of a clean but for the money paid it should have been done. The rest was fantastic. Mille et un merci, thank you so much. BTW, my husband and I spent 6 months in Jambiani, zanzibar, africa and noticed so many familiar things around the house. Character home indeed!

Beautiful view!

We enjoyed the Seagulls Loft very much. The view was stupendous and fun watching the ferries coming and going. No problem with any excess noise from this. Lots of different areas for conversation. Weather was mostly perfect while here in late September. Parking a little tight at times but everything else made up for it. No problem with noise from tenant/son who lived in lower part. Worked just fine.

HOME BY THE SEA!

Seagulls Loft is a very relaxing place to stay, with the charming town of Sidney groceries, shopping, etc. only about a 7 or 8 minute drive away. The home is nice and spacious. A 3-level with a smaller Master with small bathroom and separate laundry room on the lowest level. The middle level where you enter has the living room with fireplace and view, good sized deck with partial ocean view, kitchen, dining and tv rooms, half bath and non-master bedroom. The upstairs is the 2nd and larger Master Bedroom with an enclosed balcony and larger bathroom with shower and tub. Clean and comfortable!

Nice place, good location, good for seniors and couples

The place is really nice, located by the rocks going all the way down to the water. View is spectacular, in the evening especially. Plenty walking options.
Unfortunately a bit far away from amenities, thus driving is required. Clean, tidy, comfortable.

Several disagreeable Issues

We were told the the Ferries ,which are located directly below the house , would not disturb our stay - not true! The gardens are lovely, photos show that the view is stunning.....the stove was quite dirty but the EMR staff were wonderful wanting to send the housekeeper back. One has to be cautious not to trip in the tiny space where the didning table is as there are bricks on the floor which surround a gas stove for extra heat/ right next to this table! Also if stairs are not your 'thing' probably choose another location. We relocated and owners refused to refund any money EVEN if they were able to fill our time with others. I'd say to avoid this location!!!!!

Not worth the hassle

Not worth the hassle of paperwork, setting up payment account, half dozen confirmation emails and calls from half dozen different people, and fees to top it off. For the price, I expected sufficient towels and toilet paper as described. Strict schedule is not flexible for travelers subject to ferry, traffic or other unexpected delays. Scheduling arrival time requires reliable roaming cell service. Nonetheless, the view was excellent and we enjoyed spending time together.

Delayed Flight

Nothing wrong with the property or the contact for registration. We were delayed from getting to Victoria from Lethbridge because of plane trouble. My sister and brother-in-law were already in Victoria. I asked if my brother-in-law could register instead of me. I was told no way, only I could do the walk through even though I had already paid the rental in full. I offered to send copies of my Drivers licence and sign so that my brother-in-law could go to the house and do the walk through but was told no. My wife and I nearly did not even make our second attempt to fly to Victoria from Calgary because of a snow storm. Had we not been able to make that flight my brother-in-law and sister would have had to rent a hotel room which would have been ridiculous. For that reason I don't think I will rent from you in the future.
I was paying the rental and if I cannot designate a person to do the walk through that is wrong.

Awesome place!

Our whole family had a great time staying at Seagulls loft. We were a little unsure about the noise from the ferry traffic but that turned out to be a non-issue, in fact we think it's one of the highlights of that location! Lots of room, nice kitchen and awesome fireplace Thank you EMR for help making this trip very special! We'll be back!

NEPTUNE'S RETREAT

BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE HARBOR, WITH VIEWS YOU COULD SEE FOR MILES AND ONLY WONDER. WITH LUSH GARDENS & OUTDOOR SEATING, THE OVERGROWN & UN MANICURED LANDSCAPING MADE IT DIFFICULT TO FULLY ENJOY. THE ENTIRE FRONT & SIDE YARDS NEED PRUNING & CLEARING. SEEMED QUITE ODD, SINCE A LANDSCAPER LIVES ON THE PROPERTY! UNSURE IF THE FIREPLACE FLUT WAS OPENED OR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO OPEN IT ARE NEEDED, WE BURNED THE FIREPLACE, VERY NICE, BUT SMOKED WOULD ENTER THE HOUSE WHEN OPENED AND LINGER UPSTAIRS. I WOULD RECOMMEND A CONVERSATION DURING THE INITIAL RENTAL PROCESS INFORMING RENTERS THAT THEIR IS A TENANT WHO WILL BE IN THE HOME DAILY AND ON THE PROPERTY AT NIGHT WITH GUEST. ESPECIALLY IF THEY WILL BE USING THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM. ADDING A 3RD TV IN THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM & A HEAT LAMP IN THE BATHROOM IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AS WELL...ALSO WE HAD TO CLEAN THE INTERIOR OF THE WASHER BEFORE USING. THERE WAS DIRT & DEBRI FROM PREVIOUS USE. , .LUVED IT VERY MUCH WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN!.....THAANKS SO MUCH!

Seagull's Nest

The views from 2nd and 3rd floor are fabulous. Bottom floor seems like a basement. The property is adjacent to the Ferry terminal to and from Vancouver and the Gulf Islands so there was a lot of noise from ferries blowing their horns and sitting in front of of the house with their engines rumbling. this hadn't been mentioned in reviews I read. Since one of main criteria was quiet we would not have selected this house, nice as the two top floors are, had we known that ferries run from 7am to 11pm.

Disappointing Stay at Seagulls' Loft

This waterfront Sidney property offers nice views etc, however is right above the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal, so you certainly get to learn the schedule. Most concerning for us was the non-disclosure of a tenant/caretaker living in the basement of the property. To clarify, I mean a young single fellow, who owns a noisy vehicle and whom you have no trouble hearing upstairs. Other personal habits make this property not family-friendly in my opinion, so much so that we decided to leave early. Instructions could have been better for some of the facets of the property, but all in all we used it largely as a base for day trips on lower Vancouver Island. We are repeat VRBO users and this stay was not in keeping with previous experiences.

A great getaway with friends.

We had a great time. Great facilities but only 2.5 baths instead of 3 as advertised. Would stay there again.
