We stayed at the Serene Suite for 3 nights and loved every minute. The suite is highly equipped, everything was well thought of to the very last detail. It is extremely convenient, welcoming, and spotless clean! The location is great and our kids loved the Hot Tub.
Angela provided us with excellent recommendations and made sure we were comfortable and well oriented.
And to top it all the surprising gestures really warmed our heart.
We highly recommend the Serene Suite and will surely come back

“Everything you need with nature at your doorstep”

We loved the vacation rental in Colwood. It was only 20 minutes or so from the marina in Victoria and we were able to visit the Hatley Castle, the oldest pub in BC (6 Mile Pub) and take a nature walk seeing deer and rabbits. We spent our days on a sailboat, walking along the waterfront, eating oysters and visiting the butterfly and Butchart gardens. We enjoyed the hot tub and played cribbage at night. Great 15th Anniversary.
