Greater Victoria Bed & Breakfast, Guest House

Offering luxurious, comfortable and affordable accommodations since 2013, By the Sea BnB (built as a guest house in 1995 and formerly known as the Celtic Guest House) is owned and operated by Wendy since 2013 and has grown to become a “4-star Accommodation” in North Saanich, by Sidney BC.

Convenient Location with Great Views

We are very conveniently located near the Victoria International Airport YYJ, the Swartz Bay Ferry to Vancouver via Twassen and the Sidney-Anacortes USA Ferry, with great access to Highway #17-Patricia Bay Highway that leads directly to the Inner Harbour in downtown Victoria.


The 5000-square foot executive style guest house, located on Lochside Trail, south of Sidney, BC by 3 kilometres, features a grand entrance and open concept floor plan with vaulted ceilings adorned with numerous skylights, along with views of the ocean from the inside upper balcony.

Escape with Adult-Oriented Accommodations

Guests can enjoy breakfast in the formal dining room. The guest house and bed and breakfast is nestled on an acre of park-like grounds and gardens. Enjoy a glass of wine on the garden patio area in the sunny afternoons, surrounded by flowering baskets and trees, awhirl with hummingbirds and numerous song birds. Relax in a space elegantly furnished with an “old and new” concept and seascape art. The winding staircase and pillar-like columns give the house its own unique flair of angles and curves, perfect for weddings or other gatherings.


The separate formal dining Room lavishly done in fine china, crystal and polished silver give classic character to the house and it’s a popular place to enjoy the bed and breakfast motif, followed with coffee and conversations.
