My son is special needs and has significant asthma and multiple life threatening allergies. His class was staying up the road at Camp Thunderbird for 2 nights but my son couldn't stay because he needed access to electricity for his respirator and nebulizer. Also, because of his asthma to dust and various scents, we have tried to stay at multiple... 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

Our stay at the Arbutus Cove Guesthouse & Cottage was perfect in every way. We rode our bikes from Victoria on the Galloping Goose bike trail and arrived in the early afternoon at the B & B. Our room was ready early and we were able to drop off our panniers to lighten our load and then continue up the... More

It has a big open great room with comfy couch & big chairs for a group to gather in. Our bike group stayed there 2 nights and had a wonderful time.... More

We stayed in one of the cottages. As you will see from other reviewer's photos, the location and views are breathtaking. Kathy had the hot tub ready and we could sit there under the stars on arrival. We had three nights.here as part of a travelling holiday and wished we'd stopped for longer. Lovely walks on the doorstep and nearby... More

Everything about this place was superlative: location, view, friendliness, cleanliness, food, and on and on. I would return in a flash. If you are going to be biking the Galloping Goose you can't get any closer to the trail and a friendly nearby bike rental operator will deliver your bikes to you and then pick them up. I have never... More
