Don and Stephanie S. from Shoreview, Minnesota recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2016 Please refer to phone details given to Kari Osselton during our stay. Shower, cobwebs/dust,light switch on wall,light bulbs,etc.
A guest from Bainbridge Island, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2016 The Miraloma complex is located on a quiet peninsula north of the town of Sidney. It would be a long walk to town, but easily done if one wanted to - flat and all sidewalks. The unit is on the SW corner of the second floor so it is bright with afternoon sun. This means that (without a/c) it is warm on hot days. The two other windows barely open, but the deck door can be left open for cool breezes off the water. The deck doesn't not connect with anyone else's and is isolated and secure. As a single female traveler, I felt safe the entire time I stayed there. The condo's finishes are in good shape and are deluxe. The drapes are super heavy and block out all light - allowing deep sleep. The absolute quiet of the building and neighborhood supports a great night of sleep too. Even the sleeper sofa was comfy. The property description was correct and the unit was clean and everything worked except the bathroom exhaust fan was not very strong - needs an adjustment centrally probably. There were a few minor inconveniences: no garbage bags or sponges (had to buy) and no cutting board (did not buy). We plan to stay here again considering how much fun we had in Sidney (go to the Thursday night market when in season) and all the hiking and biking opportunities in the immediate area. Fabulous!
A guest from Sidney, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 The property description was accurate and seemed to be well maintained. We loved Sea Glass Waterfront Grill, which was right next door and enjoyed walking the beach when the tide was out. The kitchen could have been stocked a bit more with items to cook with, etc. I think a small oven would be a great addition, although we enjoyed using the BBQ in the common patio area.
Property Manager Response: Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc. Thank you for your review of Miraloma 209. The Sea Glass Grill is a great place. I will be in touch to find out what items you thought the kitchen could use, as this would be a benefit for the property and future guests. It seems like you had a good stay, and we hope to have you stay with us again in the future.
A guest from London, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 My daughter and I were so pleasantly surprised at the very high quality amenities and furnishings in this apartment. It was clean and easy to live in, with a wonderful balcony over the mature gardens.

A guest from North Saanich, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in October, 2013 We rented the suite while we were renovating our townhouse. It was the perfect loction for us at this time. After a hard day's work it was lovely to sit comforably in our home away from home.We appreciated the efforts of the caretaker, Bryan to take care of any of our concerns.
Property Manager Response: Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind review.
Claudia K. from Granger, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Miraloma 209 was a beautiful and large luxory condo. The toilet ran continually, though, and the bathroom racks were not ptoperly fixed to the wall. It would be nice to have a few kitchen supplies (e.g. salt and pepper) in the kitchen. Otherwise, it was perfect, although next time I might reserve a water view condo.
Property Manager Response: Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc. Thank you for your review of the Miraloma 209. We are glad to know you enjoyed the location.

Pat and Jim W. from Calgary, Alberta does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2013 We have stayed in this unit in the past -when a management company was onsite.We saw the key handover when we arrived -then left the key in the unit as he was busy in the garden when we left-rest of the time -we were entirely alone.The unit is showing it's age -already! Paint chipped ,curtain has a stain and furniture has water marks, some of the dishes are missing, three light bulbs had burned out, needed replacing (we made due as my husband was in a back brace and I don't climb anymore.)This time the niceities were missing-no extra toilet paper roll (a half one in the hook) no cleaning supplies (windex tub cleaner etc.) no bar of soap etc. if these are no longer being supplied-a warning should come with the booking.The "yucky" part was - there was garbage left in the bathroom can.For the positive part-the silence really is "golden" the location is perfect for a quiet stay-and we never heard anyone...until the "Friday night Meet and Greet"-we all brought our own and stayed to chat with the other (mostly owners)-that was fun.The bed is wonderfully comfortable, all the appliances work well as does the TV -for the "rainy days".We had a wonderful rest-but you really are on your own.

Each unit is individually owned and operated independently as vacation rentals. As you mentioned there isn't any guest services in the building as the hotel shut down. However, we do have people available to respond to deficiencies immediately. We do have 24 hours service number that is provided to every guest. Please call us if there is any issues incuding cleaning issues. We do our best to be on top of reported problems quickly to ensure you comfort and satisfaction is not compromised. We are going to review your concerns expressed about the property and have them acted upon. Thank you.
