Belle Maison Auprès De La Mer3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had the Nest room which is very comfortable with an ensuite bathroom. Breakfast is served on the balcony with an amazing view of the water and the trees, a true little paradise (there were even deer grazing in the garden). The B&B is in a very quiet neighborhood, away from the busy towns, but still a reasonable distance to Victoria (30min by car), and close to Butchard gardens and Sidney (for whale watching). Ross and Ruthanne are amazing hosts and made us feel completely at home. We had a wonderful three nights here.
Beautiful setting, excellent amenities, gracious hosts, and only 10 minutes from the ferries. We enjoyed the lovely gardens and beautiful view from the balcony. Sidney by the Sea is a beautiful destination. Belle Maison Aupres de la Mer made our visit even more enjoyable
Beautiful spot. Rented the cottage, it was quite nice but is right next door to the main property so you don't have a lot of privacy. Good bed, wifi was fine as well. Breakfast was just okay. Overall nice stay but didn't feel it was quite as amazing as the reviews made it out to be.
Exceptional in every way! The house and gardens are as beautiful as the photos show, if not better. There were 6 in our group and every room was comfortably appointed, including the delightful cottage! The hosts are welcoming and attentive. And the breakfast was delicious. We would highly recommend staying at Belle Maison Aupres De La Mer.
The house is beautiful and so was our room. The couple that run this place are wonderful. The view of the water is great after a day of exploring Sydney. We look forward to finding an excuse to return.
The Hosts greeted us even before we could make it to the door. The house is beautiful and absolutely spotless. The view from the balcony is lovely. The room was very well appointed with in room TV, which you probably wont use because again, view from the balcony! And the Hosts went way above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. I would rate this location as perfect.
Situated on a hill with a peek at the ocean, this b and B is lovely. We stayed in the cottage which a perfect example of a "small" house. It is beautifully furnished with all the amenities and a patio. The breakfast delivered to your room was excellent (eggs, fresh OJ, toast, super coffee). The proprietors, Ross and RuthAnne are very warm and make the expereince absolutely delightful. Highly recommended.
This is a beautiful home, renovated and spotless. Our room was decorated as if it were in a magazine. This is a wonderful place for a quiet weekend. The hosts were friendly and greeted us with tea and coffee. Breakfast is wonderful, you fill out what you want and the time and its ready. The cost was very reasonable for this B & B 30 minutes from Buschart Gardens and quite close to the ferry dock. We felt fortunate to have found this gem so close to Victoria.
We stayed in their separate building to celebrate out 37th anniversary. Very memorable and wonderful. Perfect size for a couple. Quaint livingroom, bedroom with small kitchen and great bathroom. The owners are very charming & accomodating. A good & delicious breakfast was served in our buidling. We would hightly recommend this place.
It was our first time on Vancouver Island and we had camped on San Juan Island the 2 nights prior so I knew we'd need a bed and hot shower (I took my mother who does not camp anymore). When I was researching our options I came across Belle Maison and decided to stay in the Sidney area our first night after taking the ferry over. When driving there it took me a couple of tries to find the address (I'm used to US addresses that have odd numbers on one side vs even). Drove up the gravel driveway and was warmly greeted by our hosts who had just got done gardening. They had lemon water ready and shortly after brought tea to our room. The decor was very tasteful and immaculately clean. We relaxed with our tea on the balcony and enjoyed the view. Cozy robes were provided and we ended up not leaving for dinner and just had a few snacks we brought and watched netflix in our very comfortable room. We originally intended to eat breakfast on the balcony but some inclement weather came through and we were served in the kitchen. My mother enjoyed talking and sharing stories with our amazing hosts. They were always ready to give us our space if we desired but company is just what mom needed so it was great to meet them. We even got to take home some handmade soap they made. Excellent value and experience. Perfection in every way.
