I went with a group and we stayed in the two cottages. Our stay was excellent for several reasons: the hosts are extremely helpful and accommodating, the views are stunning, and the cabins are squeaky clean and have everything you could need. Each cabin is attractive, well appointed, has a hot tub on the deck, and is situated at a... More

My husband, three boys and I stayed one night here in June and had a great visit. The owner was super helpful. The property is on a beautiful piece of land. We enjoyed the hot tub on the deck overlooking the water and the boys played on the trampoline. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good... More

We booked the Arbutus Cove Cottage as a treat for my mom's 75 birthday. Not only did they take great care of my parents but the cottage was absolutely beautiful and clean with stunning views. My parents had us over for drinks and apps and I got to see the cottage first hand. My parents had friends who stayed in... More

We stayed for two nights in March 2014. After spending one night in Victoria which was perfectly nice, we were looking forward to escaping once again to the country. And we certainly found it with this B&B. You could not ask for a more idyllic location and the views are breathtaking. Kathy was very friendly and provided very helpful advice... More

We spent two nights at Arbutus Cove Guesthouse in mid September and could not have found a more tranquil and special place. Our very spacious room was on the lower level of the home, with the deck and incredible water views just outside our door. After a full day of exploring Botanical Beach and the Port Renfrew area, nothing was... More

Kathy Hicks, the proprietress of Arbutus Guesthouse is a very special person. We got a late start on the Galloping Goose bike trail; so arrived late. Kathy interrupted her dinner and took her time to make us welcome. She toured us around her cottage, gave us insights for our dinner plans, and introduced us to her guest enjoying the hot... More
