A lovely B&B run by very hospitable hosts. The home is immaculate and a pleasure to stay in. Waking up to the songbirds was a joy. The breakfast was excellent and our dietary needs fully accommodated. The previous reviewers have painted a very accurate description of this B&B.

This lovely B&B is nestled in a lush forest area along with other homes. Surrounded by gorgeous trees with beautiful potted plants on the deck. Our room, as well as the entire home was very clean, modern and spaceous. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful. We spent a lot of time chatting with them. They had to prepare a... More

It was difficult for us to find it, because we did not have a printed street map of the area, the Garmin 42 we bought in the USA does not support Canada maps, and our iPhone Waze guided us to a wrong street. Once we arrived there, we enjoyed it very much. The house is in a remote street, located... More

We stayed for three nights and found this B&B well situated for visits to the Butchart gardens, Victoria and other parts of Saanich. We were able to use the owner's living space and deck. They were very friendly and helpful, for example providing us with a list of restaurants. The breakfasts were ample, tasty and varied. The rooms were good... More

We stayed five nights in July 2013. What a hidden treasure this place is. Great location, only five minutes drive from the city but feels like you are miles away in the quiet countryside. A beautiful house and private yard, you can relax on the deck and watch the hummingbirds. Hosts are terrific, great cooks as well. Grab this place... More

I had the wonderful opportunity of staying at this unique B&B.. The hosts Jos and Donna were great , seeing to our every need and desire, as well as entertaining with travel stories of their own.

One of the best B&B's we've stayed at, and we've stayed in many. Jos and Donna are interesting people, who take the time to visit with their guests, and swap stories. Their open plan home is sunny and welcoming. Situated on five wooded acres, with a big garden and many beautiful arbutus trees, the place is alive with many varieties... More

Jos and Donna are perfect hosts! My family of 8 stayed in all 3 rooms and we had a wonderful time. The room on the first floor has an ensuite bathroom, while the 2 upstairs rooms share a large bathroom and a loft sitting room. Jos and Donna make you feel right at home, and they cook a FANTASTIC breakfast!... More

Brilliant. The bedroom was small but pristine and the bathroom was large, immaculate with large bath and separate powerful shower. Breakfasts were varied and excellent for our two night stay and the muffins were delicious. The table gave us a wonderful view of the bird feeders and we saw an amazing variety of very colourful birds which had to queue... More

Jos and Donna really share their home and go "all-out" to make you feel like a member of their family. They are great resources for sight-seeing, history, restaurants and shopping--don't miss the 3-ring binder of information in their foyer. For those who appreciate a rural setting with spectacular views and a convenient location, this B&B should clearly be rated #1... More
