This is a gorgeous place with excellent hosts! The grounds are wonderful with flowers on the decks and beautiful bay views. After hours of travel, we felt a wonderful sense of relaxation come over us upon arrival. We had some issues with our phones and Dieter was amazing in helping us take care of things in the states that were... More

Best stay of our lives. The B&B overlooks a lagoon with an artist commune and Hatley Castle within walking or kayaking distance, and the owner is more than happy to give you helpful advice on attractions or dining options. Breakfast was amazing all four days we were there. If you don't mind waking up early, it's worth setting an alarm... More

Idyllic. Quiet. Perfect place to relax. The view of the lagoon is priceless. If you are looking to get away from your busy hectic work life, or just want to stay away from the buzz of downtown Victoria, stay here, sit on the dock, kick back and relax. The owners are great people, helpful, friendly. The place is about 15mins... More

We found this gem of a place during the Thanksgiving weekend, and one word to describe it, WOW. Everything was perfect, from the location, bathrobes, down to the breakfast Debra (the hostess) prepared for us. This place has all the amenities that even the Ritz-Calton couldn't compares. You could even use the boat and bikes for free! We will definitely... More

The host was friendly and helpful, he suggested great restaurants and made reservations for us. Victoria is a beautiful little city, the B and... More

My wife and enjoyed our stay at Birds of a Feather Bed and Breakfast. Our private deck gave us a wonderful view of the water. We enjoyed the sounds of seagulls, geese, and seabirds from the privacy of our own room. The breakfasts were wonderful. It was nice to visit with guests in the morning before heading out to see...

The setting is very nice and accommodation is fine and clean. However just be sure you google map location - although it states its ocean front it is located at edge of lagoon and ocean is a bit of a walk away. That said the view is very nice. The location is also in a neighbourhood in Colwood and at... More

Unfortunately having spent only one night with us you sampled only one of our many delicious breakfasts - in this case our baked cream cheese blueberry or strawberry french toast. While this has been very popular with thousands of our guests over the past 17 years it clearly did not appeal to you. The maple syrup is 100% Canadian and... More

What a beautiful setting right on the lagoon. We enjoyed a wonderful sunset watching the three white swans near the shore and the dock. Our host Dieter is the perfect type for a B & B. Always glad to see you and filled with wonderful advice, etc. His place is handsomely done and a real joy to stay in. I... More

A gentleman, knowledgable in the area, efficient, energetic and has a lifestyle I would love to emulate.
