Carpets, tapestries, pictures, paintings, antiques, and humorous art pieces, impressive! One made me laugh and so I asked the host – Fernando where in the world did you find that piece? Well he didn’t find it, he had created it along with all the other ones that were ‘a little eccentric’ that we would find as we explored the rooms. All sorts of things from brass Buddha like hands to miniature children’s dolls. Not all to our tastes but much to be fascinated with and entertained by.
Our room was clean, decorated with tapestries and weavings and very quiet. The carved foot and headboards went along with the carpets – the bed itself was comfortable. The claw tub interesting but the modern shower was more to my taste.
It is a 5 to 10 minute walk to downtown Victoria along the edge of the harbour. The neighbourhood is filled with older style homes in keeping with the history of the area. We learned of the home and how it came to be a B&B as it evolved over the years. Fernando provided good guidance for restaurants, we chose The Superior a block or so away and were pleased with the recommendation.
Coffee waited for us in the parlour and then exactly on time we were invited in for breakfast - a feast of fruit compote followed by a wonderful Spanish frittata with salmon, mushrooms and shrimp – we didn’t need lunch! The next morning the fruit dish was a colourful mixture of melons and berries followed by some sort of lemon fluffy ‘pancake’ that was nothing like any pancake I have ever had – delightful.
