We stayed for one night while visiting friends in Victoria and we will be back!
Vanessa and husband were awesome. They were so helpful and friendly and
thought of everything. We stayed in the Klimt room with a private outdoor deck.
There were special lotions, coffee, teas, movies, such a comfy bed, lots of great
art and of course the breakfast! Really this was a first class meal. I think this is the best breakfast I have ever had. I really did not want to leave the breakfast table! Her baked goods
are straight out of a magazine and world class. Her options for breakfast main course
were great! We loved the birds, the hosts, the home and the meal. The location is awesome as well. You are just a couple of blocks from downtown and all the action yet this is a very quiet neighborhood.
