Reviewed December 31, 2012

Visited yesterday and had a wonderful stay. Very friendly hosts and the facilities were very up to date. Room was exceptionally clean. Had a great sleep as it was dead quiet at night. Wonderful views and steps from the beach. Did I mention the delicious breakfast? Looking forward to going back soon!

We had a wonderful stay. Verna and Warren were excellent hosts, very helpful with good recommendations for the area. Enjoyed going kayaking directly from the B&B. The food was delicious and enjoyed watching wildlife while eating outside.

What a delight it was meeting you and having you stayed with us. We are happy you had a wonderful time kayaking and exploring the surrounding area. It is always a joy watching the otters and seals frolicking in the sea; and the bald eagles and blue herons having their occasional squabble. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to give us this fabulous review. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Nice house right on beach. Room was super clean and breakfast was awsome. It's a really nice stay. Bed was comfortable and hosts were friendly. But it's quite a drive to the house. It won't be sutiable for people who take public transit

Room Tip: We stay poney room is pretty good and quite

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your lovely review. We are quite happy that you have enjoyed our beautiful and quiet accommodation, the bed and our breakfast. Yes, the beach is beautiful even on a cool cloudy day.
We totally agree with you that our B&B is not suitable for people relying on public transit; as Vancouver Island is not an easy place to travel around without ones' own vehicle, and sometimes even impossible.
We have thoroughly enjoyed your company and the pleasant conversations - places of interest for traveling, work, etc. We look forward to welcoming you back, especially during the warmer weather.

My wife and I recently spent 4 days at Warren and Verna's and were thoroughly impressed with the physical facilities, the friendship of the hosts, their willingness to suggest what to do in the vicinity and most of all, their fantastic breakfasts.
The weather decided not to cooperate ( it rained very day ) which did not allow us to enjoy thier fantastic outdoor patio and ocena views.
The bedrooms are very comfortable and there is a reading, sitting area whic might be a bit cramped if the B&B had full occupancy.
Otherwise we were very impressed and would highly recommend this B&B to anyone in the Ladysmith or Nanaimo area.

It's a real treat meeting you and getting to know you a little. You were delightful guests; good company and great conversation! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us, and for you generous and kind review regarding our facilities and breakfasts. It was such a disappointment that the weather didn't cooperate during your stay. The spectacular ocean view, the beach and the gardens act like magnet during good weather, drawing guests outside, often making our indoor dining room and sitting area redundant.
We look forward to welcoming you back next summer, and we pray for fabulous weather.

Beautiful location. Excellent breakfast. Would like to come back in warmer weather to swim or kyack. Only fault was the noisy fan in bathroom that took forever to turn off. It was motion sensored. Difficult to have a sound sleep. Bed was very comfortable. Hosts were pleasant to visit with. Agree with coments from others.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to give us a review. We are delighted that you have found our location beautiful, bed comfortable and the breakfast excellent!
We are so sorry that the bathroom fan bothered your sleep. It runs 3 minutes before shutting down. Since our place is so quiet, one can almost hear a pin drops. The smallest noise can become accentuated. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We would certainly look into the issue.
We look forward to welcoming you back when the weather is warmer. The water in front of us, Elliott Beach and Ladysmith Harbour, boasts to be the warmest north of San Francisco. It's paradise for swimmers and kayakers.

My husband, my Mother, and I stayed at Beachside Garden in early September, and we give this charming B&B our highest recommendation. The location is gorgeous, the rooms are all newly remodeled and impeccably clean (we stayed in two of the downstairs rooms), and the service is outstanding. Verna and Warren greeted us warmly the moment we arrived, and they made us feel right at home, immediately giving us the tour and showing us where we could store our groceries and get coffee, tea, or sodas at any time of day or night. We were immediately charmed by the gorgeous house, which appears to be brand new, and impressed by the room. In the morning, Verna outdid herself by preparing a breakfast that was fit for a king! We were offered the choice of eating inside or outside, and because it was a beautiful day, we chose to sit outside at a charming table with a view of the water. Verna immediately appeared and gave each of us a huge bowl of fresh fruit and a delicious fruit smoothie with hints of fig and honey. We actually thought that the breakfast was over at that point (and we were already impressed with it) when Verna came back with plates of homemade gourmet muffins. She had not one, but THREE varieties of fruit muffins one each plate. (We are still dreaming about those muffins!) Finally, the third course arrived - a delicious frittatta. I was touched because my husband and I don't eat pork, so Verna had specially prepared this dish with eggs, veggies, and chicken. The other thing that impressed us was how considerate Verna was. She seemed to genuinely be interested in talking to us and her other guests, and she gave us maps of the island and helped us plan our day exploring the surrounding towns. She also told us a bit about how this B&B has been a long-time dream of hers and Warren's, a dream they worked toward for years. You really get the sense that Warren and Verna are now living their dream. They are giving this B&B everything they can and really going the extra mile to make the experience a special one. When I asked Verna where she got her wonderful recipes for breakfast, she said that she experiented in advance with several recipes for each item, and then went with the best of the bunch when her guests arrived. Anyway, the next time we come to BC, we plan to stay at Beachside B&B for several days and to explore the area more. One was not enough.

Pure serendipity led me to this beautiful spot while on a "road trip". I am in awe of the meticulous attention to detail. I find it in the building itself, the furnishings, the garden and of course in the thoroughly delicious breakfasts. I am determined to get back here somehow at a good time to kayak and to have oysters. Hmm—but first a suitable companions to share all this with. Thank you so much for your kind and generous hospitality.

Room Tip: I particularly appreciated the one facing the bay.
