What Our Guests
Say About Herons Landing

Great Place

Property was great, location good. We were very please with this rental overall. Master bed need replacing. Kitchen very well equipped and BBQ is great.

Terry S.

Family Reunion

Our experience was great. Everything we needed was provided and there was more than we expected. Loved sitting by the fireplace and listening to music on satellite TV. Will definitely consider renting again.

A Lovely Stay in a Rainy March

Although it rained for most of the month of March, we had a fabulous time staying at Heron's Landing. The home is located close to Pat Bay with lots of cycling/walking paths nearby. And it was kind of cool having coffee in the living room and looking out at the horse traffic walking by. The rental is by far the best equipped we've stayed at. Also, there were lots of good restaurants within 10 km to choose from when we got tired of eating in. We'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our friends and family.

A happy landing for our wedding party.

I was very pleased to have a house where my family and friends could stay over the day before and day after our wedding. We were happy with the space and location. The only downside was that I had prefaced my reservation asking if it would be ok to have an open house mid afternoon the day following our wedding as I wanted to b clear about our reason for renting a house and the property management company left me a voice mail an hour before my wedding saying they needed to speak about it right away. It was disappointing that they didn't have all emails I sent on file as I tried to be as transparent as possible about the open house and someone calling to tell me it might be a problem was a bit stressful. The property management was very professional and it was a non issue as it was roughly 20-30 people who stopped over the course of 5hrs mid-day when noise was not an issue. Overall the property was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful Time at Heron's Landing!

What a fantastic property! Perfect for a large family. Four nice sized bedrooms and a great kitchen. Very clean. Moreover, great assistance from the rental company. Good and quick communication. Overall, a super experience. Thanks!

Finding the Garden of Eden.

We arrived at Heron's Landing and within a few minutes Richard was there to greet us and show me around the house. What a beautiful spot, tree-lined, yet so close to the Sound. It is in a great neighborhood with friendly people and dogs who behaved so well. We were definitely impressed. The glass front house was so beautiful.Having a downstairs proved a blessing as some of us got tired and were able to go to that floor, watch tv, eat, sleep, etc.without bothering others. This is what I would call the kids floor. Games, books, etc. everywhere. We are all over 60, but still enjoyed the bedroom downstairs with two bunks. Everyone slept very well, and those who gave recommendations to us of places to see, eat and go to visit, were so helpful. Buchart Gardens wowed all of us and we were totally impressed. If there was one negative about the house, it was all the spiders and webs behind the tv's and some of the furniture. But overall, we would certainly recommend Heron's Landing to those visiting Victoria. Hope to return.

The vacation home at Heron's Landing was absolutely amazing . The location truly felt like home rather than just a place to stay. After staying there , I don't think any hotel , no matter how fancy , would have even come close.

Ken and Beverley H.

Beautiful house, great location-would rent again in a heartbeat!

There were 7 of us, it was like our own home. Very clean with plenty of towels, pots and pans and dishes and very spacious, we were never on top of each other! And the location couldn't have been better - located within a 45 minute drive from everything we did whale watching excursion, scuba diving, kayaking, hiking, golfing both regular and miniature, peaceful walks, wineries, beach walking and much more we didn't do! The weather was also wonderful. We highly recommend this beautiful house and vacation spot to anyone!

Melissa L.

Great home, nice quiet location ...

Home is well equipped and a nice place to spend as a family 7 of us and is well priced - it's got space, it's got games / movies, fully equiped kitchen / bbq / laundry. Location is great, nice places to run and stroll right out the door, relatively close to gas/groceries. Would definately rent again if I was in the area and have no problem to highly recommend to others. Would have been nice to have access to the garage - but really quiet street, so was ok w parking outside.

Great Stay

We enjoyed our stay. The property is very spacious and in good condition. The location is very convenient for Sidney and the surrounding area. Our only issue was that the house,particularly the upstairs bedroom ,was unbearably hot. I know the weather has been exceptional but stronger fans are required for when the weather is so good. I am also not sure why the sprinkler system has to come on in the middle of the night as it did disturb our sleep for the first few nights. However despite these two points we would recommend the property.


Ideal location, easy access to everywhere, waterfront within minutes walking. local restaurants very good. House is W.O.W.

David S.

Home away from home

The place was much more than expected. The house was clean, the supplies ample, very spacious and the location was great. The only complaint was that the master's bedroom upstairs was very hot on a 30 degrees day in July. Even the ceiling fan and the portable fans did not help much. Except for that, our family enjoyed our stay at Heron's Landing.

A great family rental.

We spent the month of March in Sidney and were very comfortable at Heron's Landing. The house is comfortable with two gas fireplaces, comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen and lots of room. Our daughter and her family visited us there for a week and the accommodations for six of us were very good with plenty of space for everyone. EMR were efficient and helpful with everything ready for us when we arrived. We would recommend this rental to families and two or three couples to share.


it was the perfect home for our Christmas family reunion. it was clean, the kitchen was well stocked with cooking appliances, the bedrooms were cozy and comfortable and the living space was relaxing. we loved having the lower level for games and TV. the children loved all the great toys and adults played some board games. I would definitely do it again and would love to rent it during the summer if available. the back deck and yard are beautiful. it is a short walk to the water and there is a nice walking trail.

Lovely Home

Our family recently spent three nights at Heron's Landing and enjoyed everything about the house. We have rented homes for vacation stays many times and thought this was one of the best. The location close to Pat Bay is appealing and the neighbourhood has a great feel to it. The proximity to the airport is handy and we weren't troubled by hearing the occasional airplane overhead. The house is attractive and very comfortable, but what particularly impressed us was how immaculate and well organized it is. The house is very well stocked with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans etc. and since we like to cook this was important. The binder of information we were given was the most comprehensive we have ever seen, with an inventory of where to find anything we needed. We were warmly welcomed by Jeanette of EMR Vacation Rentals who gave us a thorough tour of the house so we felt secure that if we had any problems we didn't Jeanette would sort them out. All in all, it was a great experience and we hope to go back.

Weekend group stay

Our group had a great stay at Heron's Landing and it was perfectly located for the event we were attending at Elk Lake. The close proximity to Sidney was also really useful for groceries, etc. The only minor negative aspect was some aspects of cleaning or lack of it. For a 200 fee, I would not expect to have to re-wash a lot of items in the kitchen perhaps they shouldn't trust the dishwasher to do the job and one of our party also found a neat pile of toenails on one of the nightstands. Heavy dust on top of the fridge and ceiling fans is easy to deal with, so there's not really any excuse there either. Get your cleaning company to earn their money!

Lindal Home Sidney B.C.

Over all the house was great.We spent time in Sidney as well as Victoria and all the way yo Cambpell River. We went Whale watching ,caving,fishing,attended the fire works in Victoria. Lots of fun. See you next time.

Comfortable and lovely lodging

My family and I enjoyed a two week stay at Heron's Landing in Sidney, BC. The layout of the house made it easy both for our group to be together for meals and visiting, and for individuals to have private time. The beds were comfortable the linens of good quality the kitchen functional the laundry facilities very convenient. The weather was not quite warm enough for us to enjoy the decks and garden although we did use the BBQ.

Yes, there are herons at Heron's Landing!

We were here for a family wedding & thoroughly enjoyed our stay - morning walks along the beach, lots of cycling paths nearby, close to Sidney & the airport,a beautiful home with everything we needed and more. Great for any group up to eight people. We would definitely stay here again.

William B.

Victoria swim meet

This house was very nice and located within minutes from the Victoria airport. We had plenty of room for our group of 9 people. The trip into Victoria was quick and easy. The group really enjoyed your rental. Thank you.

Easter Long Weekend at Heron's Landing

Fabulous place. It housed six adults and four children under 5 including two babies easily. Grandparents got the room to themselves upstairs, and each family a floor of the house. The downstairs is particularly spacious and well suited for a family to have some space to themselves. And lots of deck and yard space for nice weather bbqs, etc.

The place is really new, so everything looks perfect. You have a sense that you could be the first people to have stayed there.

Wonderful yard for the kids, perfect for easter egg hunts. Lovely quiet street for kids to ride bikes along and some forest opposite to go exploring in. Beach within easy walking distance. All the neighbours are friendly and welcoming. A v. short drive into Sidney.

The only downsides, if I dare identify any, are 1 soundproofing ain't great, you can hear everything from the floors above, and b the kitchen is small given how many people the house can easily accommodate, and no gas stove.

The management company were very professional and friendly. I would definitely look to rent accommodations through this company again.

And overall, without a doubt we'll be back again.

Jan V.

Beyond perfection!

This home truly surpassed all my expectations nothing was overlooked in this beautiful home. It has all the amenities you would have in your own home making you feel incredibly comfortable & gives a whole new meaning to home away from home. I will absolutely recommend this rental to everyone I know - I will definitely come back to this place. It is simply the best vacation rental I have ever stayed at.

Lisa M.

Amazing Home

Heron's Landing is a 5 star resort home. The linens are very high quality and the beds are extremely comfortable. The home is located in a beautiful neighbor that is 1/2 block from the water. The home has many amenities such as new dishwasher, washer and dryer.

Four of our adults daughters and one infant granddaughter along with my husband and myself stayed in the home. Everything we could possibly need was there. We would able to invite our extended family back after my father's funeral. It was such a blessing to be able to do so.

Restaurants, grocery stores etc are located within a 5 minute drive.

We would all HIGHLY RECOMMEND this home to anyone. It is very affordable priced. We hope to have the opportunity to stay again in the future.

The Management Company was excellent as well.

Deborah W.

Fantastic house 5 stars

Our family had a great time staying in this lovely house set in a quiet semi rural area near the sea. The house is very well equipped with everything you need while on holiday from patio tables/chairs, BBQ to an abundance of clean towels. There are short and long walks to and along the sea shore and through the countryside.

A very nice spot at a great location

Really enjoyed the stay. I suggest that the property description includes greater detail about the separate residence on the property... it should be made clear that this refers to the basement had we have known this we would have chosen a different location. Trying to keep our two your children quiet and respectful of the occupants of the basement suite was a full time job and really took away from our enjoyment unfortunately. That said there weren't any complaints from the tenants... but as a respectful and mindful renter it just didn't turn out to be a good fit for us. I wouldn't recommend this property to families with toddlers unless they are very calm and quiet unlike ours!or unless the parents simply don't care.


Have not a bad word to say. Everything was top notch. Great location. Quite.. just all around a good time..they have thought of everything.. I would definitely stay here again..

Linda A.

Great vacation

This place is wonderful! Well stocked and comfortable. Great location. And any questions we had were quickly answered. We would definitely stay here again!

Treena H.


5 of us stayed at Herons for 2 months. Close to lovely town of Sidney, airport and ferries. Nice quiet neighborhood and rural feeling. The home was incredibly well equipped for a long stay. We wouldnt hesitate to return or to recommend to others

A nice visit

We had a nice stay. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils. The WiFi was great, one member of our party had to be on multiple conferences so that was really helpful. We were a bit self conscious about the neighbors below as we had two small children but it seemed to work out okay. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do.

Great weekend at Heron’s Landing

We celebrated part of our 50t anniversary at this delightful home with close family.
It is a great location, a block from the ocean with a nice waterside walking path.
The home was immaculate and has a very well equipped kitchen.
EMR staff and their greeter are great, so helpful!
We highly recommend this stay!

One of our best experience

Beautiful home with beautiful kitchen supplies and furniture.
Very close to quiet beach to relax, swim and watch the sunset.
We enjoyed it a lot.

Serene and Quiet

Had an excellent stay - home is fully furnished and very comfortable. The location is almost rural and yet only minutes from Sidney. Cycled everyday and explored this end of the island. Highly recommend.

Tom L.

Home in Sidney

Beautiful, well equipped comfortable home.

They were very helpful and accommodating!

Heron Landing Review

Lovely, bright and spacious home located in a very nice neighbourhood. The house was tastefully decorated and was sparkling clean. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with plenty of cookware and serving dishes. Just a block away from a beautiful walk along the shoreline. EMR was very prompt to respond to any questions or concerns. Overall, a very pleasant experience for our seven week stay and we would definitely return.

Sidney Weekend Rental

Thank you so much for the beautiful home. We rented during the thanksgiving long weekend and couldnt have asked for a better host. The entire home was spotless, bedrooms comfortable and being so close to the ocean was great when going for walks. I loved the area and nearby shops that made my stay feel like home.

Benjamin E.

Cozy Home Away From Home

Absolutely amazing. We wanted for nothing. We came in the summer and we were surprised by a chilly, rainy vacation day. The owners came by to turn on the fireplace for us.

Spacious and cozy for our party of four. Perfect location for a nice getaway from the city.

Maryanna D.

Heron’s Landing

Lovely, well equipped upper level in a very quiet neighbourhood. We walked along the beach each morning and evening. It was so beautiful and peaceful. It wasnt close enough to walk to anything, but only a 5 minute drive to town. We loved it and had a fabulous time.

Wendy P.

grieving extensive and significant loss

The loss of several thousand dollars - attempting to partner with EMR / VRBO is just one of the significant losses to our family, because of Covid. In the end, compared to the grieving of loved ones, it's little more than worthless money.

Stay at Herons Landing

We had a great time staying at Herons Landing. The house was beautiful and clean with anything you could need to cook in the home. Close to the water and easy drive to Sidney or Victoria.

That being said, the ad listed on both VRBO and AirBnb stated this was a rental house, not shared living. It stated there was a SEPARATE caretaker or renter residence ON THE PROPERTY. It did not say it was a shared home or shared yard. We rented this house to specifically have it to ourselves. The yard was shared with renters in the basement who let their dog out into the backyard. The ad seems dishonest and misleading. We wouldnt have rented if we knew it was a shared house/yard.
