Interaction with guests
It varies, I pretty much meet and greet, and then make myself available for tips and local knowlege if desired... I may be occupying the one bedroom owners apartment downstairs or away travelling. (which is why I prefer longer term guest stays)
Other things to note
Too many things to list... please consult the web pages for the Town of Sidney with all of its links... the Saanich Peninsula is much drier, warmer and sunnier than Victoria itself even though it is so close.
No pets, no smoking. Suits families and respectful couples.... House can accomodated up to eight but comfortable target is about four to six. We often have just couples who enjoy the space to themselves.
