We spent a week here, 7 of us, 3 generations from Ontario visiting our family in the area. Everything was perfect & beyond our expectations. It felt like home. The house had everything we needed & was very well equipped for making our meals. The cottage was clean & comfortable. Location couldnt be better! It is a short drive to all the attractions & a few minutes from the airport.
We will definitely plan to return.

We stayed at this cottage for 2.5 months to get away from the snow. It was a lovely spot, the neighbourhood was super friendly, and the location really couldn't be beat.

A beautiful house surrounded by beautiful scenery for my staff team getaway. The rooms were perfect for what we needed and the kitchen was well stocked. My team enjoyed having easy access to the beach and the not too far drive to Victoria for outings.

Unfortunately, neither the WIFI or cable TV worked during the entirety of my team's stay and everyday there were phone calls asking for the owners which got a bit annoying.

Our guests gathered at Pendray House for 4 nights to attend our son's wedding and travelled from the USA and England. We knew it would not be easy to accommodate 14 adults when we started our search for a vacation rental in the Sidney area, but feel extremely lucky to have found this beautiful rental property right on the water. The rental procedure was easy and straight forward with good communication between us and the managers, who responded to questions and were very helpful on arrival. The house is quite spacious and has 3 very good bathrooms, with ample hot water and towels. The kitchen was large enough to cope with group breakfasts and lunches. The real advantage of this property though is the delightful outside space and access to the little beach. Our guests were able to spend a lot of time on the deck and beach, enjoying the incredible views across the inlet with the ever changing light reflecting different colors and moods on the water. The large table out there was used for lunch and dinner and would be the perfect spot for a BBQ. We saw an eagle and seals and enjoyed the tranquility of the neighborhood and easy access to shopping in Sidney. There is adequate on street parking outside the house and some little trails to take a walk and explore the coastline. This house was a perfect vacation rental and none of us wanted to leave. What a wonderful experience for our family and friends in beautiful British Columbia!!

Enjoyed the row boat crabbing and oyster fishing with our brother in law from the area.
Grand Children had fun with each other 7 under age 4. Excellent location. Lamp in the living room is getting rather worn out should be replaced. We were unable to find the remote control for the upstairs TV but had nice weather so didn't really need it

We 12 of us from 4 families from Seattle area stayed for 3 nights in May. We enjoyed our stay a lot overall. Gorgeous view and sunset. The facilities were good. The house has a character. We did backyard bbq. Kids loved playing in the rocky beach. Only negative things I can think of WiFi too slow, microwave oven too small and under-powered, and some of the cooking pans are too worn out.

This house was great for our family of 9 adults who were visiting Victoria for a family wedding. The view from the dining room, living room and deck was stunning. The fireplace in the living room made for comfortable, relaxing evenings for visiting and the little extras throughout the house made it very inviting and feel like home. As we all arrived at different times from various points in Canada and the US, we truly appreciated the convenience of access to the airport and the ferry. Although there were only 3 queen size beds, the bunk beds in the 2 other rooms were big enough that for a few nights, young adults were able to sleep comfortably.

Rather than buy gifts for everyone for Christmas we decided to rent accomodations for our family of 13. Was a wonderful interlude from winter-28 degrees in Central B.C. for five days!With a 15 passenger van we were able to explore the area and cityand both grandkids and adults found the beach fascinating! The weather co-operated too so all in all it was a golden moment in time for our family!I heard many times Grandma,this was better than opening any gift!We will savor our pictures and memories for a long time to come!!!

Great house with lots of room. We had 4 young kids and 3 couples and most had their own space. The location of the house is awesome for a quiet getaway with easy access to the ocean. The house is quite unique and different with its decor and items. This did become a little challenging with 3 babies. My only hope was to have more practical items- especially in the kitchen ex. small knifes, oven mitts, dish clothes. Everyone enjoyed their stay- especially the little ones!

The pictures on your site does not justify how beautiful this property is. It's very spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and the view is breathtaking! The person that I spoke with EMR Vacation is very professional and patient with me, she have answered all the questions I have. Our greeter was very pleasant to deal with, we called her during our stay and she's always available to help us out. I'm pretty sure me and my family will ALWAYS be using EMR Vacation for our travels!

I would not recommend the property to anyone else because of the limited parking. The parking on the street greatly crowds the passing cars. Also because of scrutiny from neighbours you feel like you can't have visitors, raise your voice above a whisper, etc. I felt unwelcome the whole time.

:inner_fname and :inner_sname :.

EMR Response

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We have never had complaints about parking unless a guest has attempted to over crowd the property. The parking on the property will accommodate 2 vehicles. This property is located in a residential neighbourhood and is meant for family groups and not for parties. We do have a selection of properties that are better suited for larger groups and events. We hope to see you again in the future.

Our family of 14 adults, coming from all corners of the US, found this home a perfect accomodation for all of us. The outside dining table as well as inside dining was a wonderful surprise.

We loved our stay at the Pendray house. With 10 of us in all, there was plenty of room to spare. The beach and deck were used every day even swimming in October. The deck was great for entertaining friends. The master bedroom with ensuite were luxurious. We loved the community and would love to call the area home one day.

The home and setting were very nice. The general condition was clean and ready for use. The rental staff weren't very knowledgeable about the property and what was included but overall our experience was positive. If you're looking for a quiet rental within short driving distance to amenities then this is an excellent location...

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful property. The view was priceless the house perfect for our group of 7, everyone had their own room.

One small disappointment, we were not able to use the deck at the bottom of the stairs by the water since it was being used to store firewood.

We are gald you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind review. We will look into why there was firewood on the deck. Normally it is stored in the shed at the side of the house.

This home was very clean, well kept, management was very easy to work with and pleasure. The house is perfect for a large family with children. We were two families with 7 children combined and this home was everything we needed. The beach and water front had incredible views and made our stay very relaxing, even with that many kids. We would stay here every weekend if we could!

Great house. Our kids loved walking down the steps to their own private tidepool. So many beds allowed each to have their own for the night and not share a queen. The internet didn't work when we arrived but it was a blessing because we spent more time enjoying the beach and playing games as a family rather than watching TV. It should be back up by now. One of the upstairs couches was a little wobbly but clean and may need to be replaced down the road. The piano could be tuned but was enjoyable to play. We felt very comfortable here and the kids said they want to come back every year! Very satisfied and glad we came. Much better than any hotel. Having a full kitchen allowed us to cook in the morning and evenings with ample seating and a great private ocean view. Cast iron skillets and hot cocoa in the cupboard made it feel like home.

Very nice location if one is ok being a bit removed from the city. Lots of sleeping space and great views from the dining room. Excellent home to just hang out in and soak up the view and play by the water even in the water in December. Good for older kids, games, big meals. Good fit for us.

It was clean on arrival, rental quality cookware, lots of bathrooms, good beds, and great location. Driveway is a little tight but not really a problem.

The binoculars could use replacing. Overall a good rental.

Overall our weeklong stay was very good. Loved the lay-out, large kitchen well-equipped, superb setting, especially for children. Comfortable beds, efficient bathrooms, more than ample supply of linens, cottage temperature easy to adjust, effective. Dining room furniture was expansive and in good shape. We were eight - adults and children. Good ease of access, services, facilities nearby. Approachable, engaging neighbours.

The location of the Pendray house was amazing. Our group of nine women loved sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean or strolling the beach. The 3 queen rooms were very nice with comfortable beds. Downstairs bunk beds were adequate. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked. We cooked in most nights and it was great to have a BBQ, seating for 10 and plenty of dishes etc. Enjoyed exploring nearby Sidney, Island Beach Park and Butchart Gardens was close and worth the visit. A lovely 4 days catching up with old friends!

The house surpassed the pictures. It was very clean and open and the view of the harbor was spectacular. The quietness and location were perfect to get away from the city. EMR communications were excellent in providing good customer service. Sidney is a great little town. The Butchart Gardens are amazing. Victoria is close enough to go for dinner at 10 Acres. Plenty of historical things in Victoria to see. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we look forward to coming back again soon.

The location was great, as it had a post card type view that was amazing. We saw whales, owls, seals and dolphins from the patio on multiple occasions. It had plenty of seating, so our party of 10 had lots of room to stretch out. The kitchen had far more accessories then most home rentals do with plenty of room to cook, and dine.

However, it did have some areas that should be addressed. The living room sofas were seen as very uncomfortable, and the area was over flowing with unneeded furniture and dusty nic nacs. It was hot, the location was void of fans, and some rooms didn't have a few window screens. So we left with mosquitoe bites everywhere. Additionally, there were areas that really are needing a deep cleaning, that are beyond what a house keeper would be expected to touch between rentals.

There is a old junker car in the front yard, and a old rotten empty shed. So the front view was less desirable. Further the grill is in bad repair and has to be manually lit.

All in all, we did enjoy our stay. The amount of room was perfect for us. Looking through the available rentals with enough room for 10 plus, it was a easy choice. We could see our selves hoping to return one day. Everyone we spoke to was nice and helpful. Sidney BC, was a hidden gem. Further the short drive from the ferry and airport was excellent.

This property has an amazing 'homey' feel to it. This property is less than 5 minutes away from Victoria BC International Airport, less than 10 minutes to Sidney by the Sea, and about 30 minutes away from downtown Victoria BC. We were able to see so much during our stay and we always looked forward to getting back to the house. Had my coffee in the backyard every morning watching the birds - humming birds, herons, osprey, bald eagles, woodpeckers, and rabbits running through the yard. So peaceful, relaxing, and everyone in the party was happy.

EMR staff was waiting when we arrived. We had one small issue early on and EMR were on it right away. Beautiful cottage setting. The property was a bit tired looking but fit the cottage appeal. Great beach access perfect for groups with kids. Our granddaughters spent many many hours exploring the beach and water. Accommodated our group that had people from 7 to 87. Large patio with huge table and lots of deck chairs was our favorite spot. Great bird watching. Easy access to Sidney and Victoria and all the sites in the area. We would definitely rent this property again.

The property was absolutely gorgeous, well appointed, and spotless. It was a perfect rental for our group of three young families. We travel every year together, always booking through the two big vacation rental sites. HOWEVER. The rental company pestered us so often from booking through to access to the unit that we would NOT recommend booking this place. I have 42 emails in my exchange with this company. We had to provide our credit card number FOUR times AFTER booking through the rental site. We had to arrange to meet a greeter onsite on arrival, rather than use a code for the door, which they HAD but did not provide for us. Instead, we had ONE key to share amongst three families. All of the parties we encountered were very friendly, but it is completely unnecessary in 2018 to have to have this much interaction for a vacation rental. I've booked dozens of places on VRBO and Airbnb and the amount of interaction with this particular company was more than all the others COMBINED. They also used a combination of signed and scanned forms, website forms from multiple sites, which seemed very disorganized. I was a bit skeptical that the rental would actually work out, so I was pleased when our friends arrived and there was actually a greeter there. To summarize gorgeous property that is horribly managed by seemingly nice people that have no clue how vacation rentals work in this decade. I'd be happy to book again if the owners decided to use the VRBO or Airbnb platform as they're meant to be used - it would be 100x simpler, easier, and likely less expensive for them.

Our group consisted of 9 people, ages 5 to 70, for a family get together of 4 different households. I had never rented a vacation home before so it was a new experience. It was an easy process. The staff was very helpful. Our greeter was helpful in directing us to a place to eat & a grocery store that first night. We had an issue with the BBQ girl. It was quickly resolved. We enjoyed ourselves we decided we need to do family get together more regularly & would certainly prefer Pendray House if we return to the area and use EMR if looking elsewhere.

We found the home to be very comfortable and well cared for. The view of water and access were good...stairs might need a little help in the future. Its secluded and yet you're close to Sydney and Victoria is only a short drive away. We enjoyed out time.
We were surprised we had to supply our own toilet paper and paper towels. Unusual.

Overall, we were satisfied with our vacation rental. However, there are some simple things the owners can do to improve their guests stay. I would highly recommend using an unsented laundry product the bedding was almost unusable because of the strong smell of laundry products. Our greeter mentioned the BBQ probably doesn't work, so we didn't even attempt to use it for our salmon. Please just get a new one! Coffee maker works, but the filters were for a different type of coffee machine. Duh! Loved the outdoor furniture and the deck down by the water. The livingroom sofas were very uncomfortable, maybe invest in some new ones. The bathrooms were very clean and nicely done and we loved the diningroom table overlooking the water. A big thankyou to our greeter for bringing a blender for us to use for smoothies!

Our 3 generations of family had such a wonderful stay at Pendray house. The home was clean and cozy and had everything that we needed for our 2 week vacation. We loved hearing about the history of the home and talking to the neighbours about the beautiful surrounding area. We beach combed, canoed supplied our own, wandered the quite neighbourhood and basked in the magical view. It was wonderful to be able to bring our four legged family member along with us too. Although we come from different parts of the world we definitely hope to be back one day to add to the amazing memories made.

This was our fifth visit to Pendray House. We enjoy the ocean side location and the close proximity to our family. Our grandchildren love the access to the water and exploring the beach. We had excellent weather for our stay and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the Saanich Inlet.
The property is in need of some repairs and maintenance and we have some suggestions to make this home more enjoyable for guests.
The back fence is in need of repair as the rails are rotting and the pickets are falling off. The stairs to the water are showing signs rotting and some of the steps are separating from the stringer. This is potentially dangerous. The dining room chairs, although recently reupholstered, have many stains on them and the sofa cushions are spotted and are in need of a cleaning. The silver wear needs to be cleaned. The kitchen recycle and garbage containers should probably be replaced or at least the inside of the lids and containers should be thoroughly cleaned, pretty grungy. The dishwasher doesn't dispense jet dry and the dishes end up spotted and many had to be rewashed by hand. There is perhaps a lot of crud trapped at the bottom of the dishwasher.
The yard and the decks are well maintained and quite enjoyable.

There was a bit of a mix up for the greeter. I didn't have her cell number and when I tried the other numbers given in the email there was only voicemail on a Friday of a long weekend of course Seems that this process could be made simpler.

The house was in great condition. Some of the kitchen appliances and utensils could use an upgrade - knives, frying pan, stove and microwave. There was also no propane in BBQ.

We've been doing this for 9 yrs and this was voted the best one yet. Thanks!

We had a wonderful weekend at Pendray House. The setting was beautiful. The house had very comfortable beds and soft cozy duvets on the beds. The kitchen was equipped with all the necessary equipment an tools. There were books on the shelf for reading. Lots of outdoor seating. The weather was fantastic while we were there. It was the first really nice weekend in the area so our timing was perfect. It was great for walks or looking at starfish on the beach when the tide was out. We were a group of five women friends from high school celebrating our 40th annual get together. The five bedrooms and three bathrooms really added to the enjoyment of the weekend. The short drive to the airport or ferry made it very easy to get everyone in our group to their destinations after the weekend. A rental car is a must if you plan to see the surrounding area. The only improvement I would make to the house is to widen the driveway so it is easier to get in and out of and possibly make room for two cars to park side by side. The only thing that was missing in terms of supplies at the house was a box of facial tissue Kleenex.
I would stay there again with a group and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Sincerely, Maureen, Saskatoon, SK

We had a wonderful time at Pendray house. We had lots of room and the views were fantastic, eagles in the trees in front of the house, herons in the water at the bottom of the stairs. Our guests from Alberta and Saskatchewan were in awe.
We would recommend it to anyone.
We will look forward to returning in the future

There were seven of us, and we all thoroughly enjoyed staying at Pendray House. There was easy access to the beach. The layout of the home was very well planned so that you could take advantage of the view of the water. The kitchen was spacious as was the dining room and living room. Plenty of cooking utensils. We were all very happy with the accommodations.
