During our two week tour of BC we stayed at several B&B's, none of which came close to ElesEscape in ANY area. Here you you get pampered. Here you have a complete floor of the house, not just a bedroom. Diningroom, living room, bathroom (with heated floor), etc. Barbara has flair which shows up everywhere in the home. Like staying...

After six days on the West Coast Trail, we could not have been more pampered. A welcome of figs, cream cheese and hummus, while we eased into a comfy chair on the upper deck. Was able to stretch and practice yoga on the lower deck before taking a stroll with Barb and her English Sheepdog on the beach. An idyllic... More

Stopped in Nanaimo to bird Buttertubs Marsh and the Neck Point/ Piper's Lagoon area. This B&B is close to both; in addition, it's a quick, enjoyable walk down the road to small neighborhood beaches and more birding. Went to Buttertubs early in the morning, came back to a delicious, healthy breakfast. Very comfortable stay: as others have described, the hosts... More

Small, intimate B&B close to the beach and attractions. Barb has made this small B&B exceptional with her attention to detail. The breakfasts are amazing, decorators touches throughout the home, relaxing porches with ocean views, special treats upon arrival, stocked mini fridge and to top it off Barb is a wonderful hostess full of helpful information. Oh, and let us... More

We recently completed a very quick trip to Vancouver Island which was a mistake but choosing to stay for 2 nights at Eles Escape B&B definitely was not. Barb was extremely helpful in providing suggestions and directions. She was most welcoming, provided so many little extras and the breakfasts were AWESOME! Definitely would be back for a much longer stay.... More

Stayed with Barb & Jack for 3 days. Barb's breakfasts are out of this world and the presentation was superb. Very comfortable house and lovely decor. Barb was also very informative for ideas of activities and very personable. I wouldn't hesitate on deciding where to stay if in the area again. Ele is a beautiful friendly dog and only wish... More

My experience at this B&B far exceeded expectations! Not only was I able to get in in fairly short notice, but Barbara was pleasant right from the first email correspondence. Everything from the welcome email, directions, the suite, the adorable house, and most especially the generous hospitality to myself and my two Beagles, was absolutely superb. The breakfasts were amazing!... More

An absolutely wonderfully charming experience for our first time at a B&B. Our hosts, Barb & Jack were welcoming and had many interesting stories to share. The accommodations were very clean, beautifully decorated, and the food was delicious; Barb is an artiste! Situated very close to the ocean, we enjoyed several lovely walks even in the cool October mornings. Right... More
