We stayed at Birdwatch retreat for three nights as part of a business trip. We could not have been happier - so much better than staying in a hotel. Breakfast was delicious and a great way to start the work day. The rooms are large and very comfortable with separate sitting areas that look out over the water. We will... More

Gini was so accommodating - happy to fill us in on local history and best places for cycling, hiking and eating. One of the features of our room was a beautiful balcony with sunset views. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely retreat. Gini and Roger made the place feel like a home away from home. The rooms were comfortable and luxurious, the balcony a nice place to relax, and the sitting room was comfortable. However, it was breakfast that really sold me on the place. Every morning we were greeted by a breakfast... More

Stayed for two days and was sorry to leave. Perfect hosts, excellent breakfasts, comfortable, clean, and spacious. The outdoor porch was an added bonus. One of the best values in Victoria. We were sad to not be able to use the fireplace, but it hardly detracted from our stay...it would just have iced the cake if we could! Will go... More

Unfortunately we were only at the Birdwatch Retreat for one night, however it was enough to encourage us to go back whenever we are in the Victoria area. Gini and her husband Roger go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and right at home. The back balcony view overlooking the inlet is gorgeous and peaceful, perfect for... More

The Bird watch retreat was a beautiful home away from home. We stayed for 2 weeks with Gini and Roger and enjoyed our quiet and spacious environment. The room has a fridge, ensuite bathroom, sitting room as well as a kettle/coffee press and utensils to have an afternoon snack back at the room. The view was amazing, over looking the... More

Amazing rooms with views over Portage Inlet, private deck and ensuite baths. Excellent location on bus route and 5 minutes drive from downtown. This is one of those B&Bs where the owners are doing it for pleasure, so the value is second to none and the service is outstanding. Gini and Roger (the owners) let us up to our room,... More
