“A great place to stay:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We stayed at the B & B while doing some volunteer work. We were very warmly greeted both by the owners and their 4 legged feline friends. Very engaging and welcoming couple and easy to interact with. The breakfast was to die for and so elegantly served. A lovely home and wonderfully designed and welcoming. Thanks for the great overnight stay:)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I had a friend coming to stay from New Zealand, and at the time my accomodation was not big enough for both of us.
Being a busy time of year on Vancouver Island I had some trouble locating the right place for her to stay,but when I found Debbie and Darwins lovely house in Ladysmith,I knew that this was the one.
They are a lovely couple, Debbie is an amazing cook and the breakfasts she provided, which I was invited to,were out of this world.My friend from New Zeland needed some peace and quiet to recover from an injury,and she was well and truly pampered by Debbie and Darwin.
The situation of the house which has a great view of the Ladysmith harbour, is sunny warm and expertly decorated inside and out, with both Debbie and Darwin being keen gardeners.
This is a lovely B&B. I have travelled a great deal and this is one of the
best. Ladysmith is a great little town handy to all parts of Vancouver Island. Do join Debbie and Darwin at their superior B&B you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask about the suite downstairs which has a kitchen and separate bedroom

Had a great stay! Great Ocean views with a nice patio over looking the ocean and main land mountains. The breakfasts were great. Hopefully your stay will include the home made cinnamon buns!

My husband and daughter and I stayed here last fall and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were great and quiet and the house is new and is a lovely design. We stayed long enough to see the town and some restaurants and have a hike. The patio is on the front of the house(east side) and was warm in the morning for coffees while looking at the ocean and playing with the cats. When we visit the island again we will definetely make plans for another stay here and make it longer this time. The hosts are very warm and friendly and helpful.

Thanks Debbie and Darwin for a great stay. Really enjoyed the early morning sunrises and wonderful breakfasts you prepared. Really liked stretching out on the big deck, so relaxing. Found your location so accessible for all our planned activities. See you again.

My wife, Son(1 year old) and myself stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time! we woke to fresh coffee and food everyday. My wife LOVED the patio with an ocean view, this is where she spent the majority of every morning! We stayed in the large suite downstairs and found it very comfortable and accommodating to our baby and us. We were in and out at all hours and found it very easy to come and go as we pleased.

Thank you Debbie and Darwin!

Room Tip: Basement was More the comfortable and Very private
