“Great place to launch a kayak for a Gulf Islands trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

This B&B has so many benefits-a wonderful location with beautiful views and gardens, gracious and engaging hosts and immaculate accommodation. We chose to embark upon a 5 day kayaking trip from this location as the owners had an easy and well protected beach access for our kayaks and our endless gear. This worked amazingly well and we would recommend this to anyone thinking of exploring the Gulf Islands by kayak. We stayed here at both the beginning and end of our trip so we went from luxury to back-country camping and back again- it was a wonderful experience. Thanks to Warren and Verna for a great stay. Highly recommended accommodation.

Thank you for your generous review. We are very impressed by your attention to details when you planned your trip: from determining the perfect spot to launch your kayaks, to making sure your car is in safe keeping while you explored the Gulf Islands, to finding rooms for all your gears and supplies in the kayaks, etc. We are happy to have ample parking space to accommodate your car while you were on the Gulf Islands. The sheltered beach in front of our B&B is paradise for kayakers, scuba divers and swimmers, and indeed, many kayak tours and scuba dive lessons start from here. It’s fantastic you had a wonderful time – you deserve it!

We found out about BG 'on line'. It is always hard to know from the 'web presence'. We were happily surprised with how beautiful, clean and quiet BG is. We had our rowing shells with us and launched from their perfect gravel beach. Our hosts were top notch: pleasant company and very helpful. The facilities were excellent: clean, quiet, comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and convenient. Parking is conveniently close and on the same level as the room. Views are awesome. Thank you for having perfect weather, too!

Room Tip: There's only three. You can't go wrong.

We are extremely happy that you found us ‘on line’ and took a chance on us. We are equally happy that you love our beautiful B&B, awesome ocean view, delicious breakfast, and the convenience of launching your sculls directly from our property. We have enjoyed your company and appreciate you taking time to share your joy with us. We learned something new and very interesting! The day was perfect, the ocean a piece of glass, paradise for ocean rowers!

We were committed to attend a family reunion for most of our time in Ladysmith but thoroughly enjoyed our four days, starting each with sunshine (lucky us!) a scrumptious breakfast tailored to our preferences, great coffee and amazing scenery. We could easily have never left the property as everything is there: gorgeous ocean views, a gentle slope to a walk on beach amd clear water warm enough to swim in. The property is a work of art and Verna and Warren work hard to keep it beautiful. They are still adding and changing the landscaping. Both hosts went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable. We will have to come again when we can simply enjoy the experience of the Beachside Garden.

We have enjoyed your company albeit for a few moments each day. We are happy you had a great family reunion, and took time to enjoy the gorgeous ocean view and beautiful gardens. Yes, the water is so clear and warm enough to swim in! It is a real pleasure getting to know you – warm, caring and compassionate. We look forward to seeing you again.

My husband and myself toured part of the Pacific Coast bike route from June 19-July 5, 2011, covering British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. We visited many B&B's, hotels, and restaurants on our travels, and the Beachside Garden B&B was of very high standard. You enter a long driveway with wonderful gardens to come upon a new and elegantly designed house. But what is on the other side, and which you enjoy from your bedroom window and breakfast table in the morning, is a stunning water setting on Ladysmith Harbor. The house inside has beautiful hardwood floors and a decor scheme that is harmonious and peaceful, with the B&B area giving you access to a small kitchenette and laundry facilities, and the rooms are fully equipped with everything you need. But if you are in need of anything, you can rely on the friendly hosts Warren and Verna. They recommended a great English pub/beer garden in the neighboring town, and Warren drove us to dinner and back, and drove us (and later my wallet) to the main road for us to resume our bike tour the next day. I only wish we could have stayed a few more days!

You described our place much more eloquently than we could ourselves, and giving it more justice. Thank you so much. We were more than thrilled to recover your wallet. We hope you have enjoyed your cylce tour though the beautiful Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island, onto Washington and Oregon. What a fantastic tour! Of course, we also wish you could have stayed with us for a few more days, giving us a chance to get to know you better. Warm regards,

My husband and I are traveling frequently for business reasons so I was looking for something different - our stay at the Beachside Garden B&B exceeded my expectations. The location is gorgeous, the view is stunning, the room was comfortable and cozy, the home made breakfast was simply somptuous. Warren and Verna are incredible hosts and give a whole new dimension to the art of B&B.

We cannot agree more with you about the stunning ocean view, which never ceased to impress us. We are humbled by your request for the breakfast recipes so you can make them for your daughters. What doting parents you are! We thank you so much for staying with us, and we look forward to your return with your daughters.
