The Marifield House B&B is ideally located in an central location in Victoria and is within easy walking distance of the Inner Harbour to the north, the bay to the south, Beacon Hill Park to the east, and a small shopping center (with a Laundromat) to the west. Although we did have a car, we mostly used it for longer trips outside the central city. The B&B is located in James Bay, an old neighborhood and about half a block from the Emily Carr home. It was fun to walk around the neighborhood and see the many heritage houses and gardens. The B&B was beautifully decorated but not so fancy that one didn’t feel comfortable. The owners do require guests to remove their shoes in the front hall but that was no problem. The breakfasts were probably the best meals we had on Vancouver Island and were as beautifully presented as they were delicious. David was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and answering our many questions about Vancouver Island.
