We stayed with Jos and Donna for 4 nights at the start of our third trip to BC and we wish we'd found them before now. They have a lovely home in a very quiet neighbourhood amongst woodland (which includes arbutus trees) on top of a hill- the name says it all. Their home was lovely, their food even better... More

If you think you are on the wrong way - you are on the right way. Very charming place with brilliant hosts! Perfect breakfast, fantastic scenery, nice rooms and big bathroom. Perfect located for day trips around Victoria. - a real B&B jewel.

We planned a stay of three nights in the Victoria area but didn't want to stay in a standard "cookie cutter" hotel. We found this wonderful bed & breakfast and couldn't have been more pleased. It is close to everything but feels like it is off in the woods. The food was excellent and the hosts were so helpful. It... More

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. We were treated to a very filling home made bread, breakfast and muffins every morning during our 2 day visit to Victoria and the... More

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
