“Incredible Experience”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

My husband and I just spent a night at the Beachside Garden B & B and it was a real treat for us. When we arrived, Warren and Verna were there welcoming us with open arms. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the Magnolia room which had the best bed I have ever slept in and breakfast was top notch. They served us delicious smoothie with fresh fruit, eggs wrapped in ham with asparagus and fresh smoked salmon. The view is breath taking from the dining room and was quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be back and is in a great location for those travelling north or south on the Vancouver Island. Don't miss out on this beautiful gem.....Janet

The Beachside Garden B&B was my first introduction to B&B's. If they were all this way, I may never stay in another hotel again.

Warren and Verna are a warm and welcoming couple, happy to share a glass of wine with you and offer recommendations for sightseeing -- if that's what you want. The building was fairly new (4 yrs?), was very clean and smartly designed - the B&B has a separate entrance from the home and each bedroom was positioned so that they have corner windows with a view of the water. We were there on a Thursday and had the place to ourselves. There is a small sitting area, a galley "kitchen" and a wonderful eating area with a magnificent view of the water.

The backyard is set up so that you can sit with a morning coffee in a couple different locations. The "beach" was mostly bedrock (I think) but great for exploring. A few steps away, literally, is a public beach.

We were so entranced by the views at the back of the house that we didn't notice the wonderful landscaping out front (the house is set back from the road so there is a large gated landscaped yard). Not sure how we could have missed it but now we have one more reason to go back.

Breakfast was amazing -- raspberry French toast with warm lemon sauce, bacon, fruit, a smoothie and coffee/juice.

I would love to go back.

Thank you so much for your very comprehensive, kind and flattering review. We are truly pleased that you stayed with us, as we thoroughly enjoyed your delightful company and conversations.
Yes, the ocean view is magnificent. The front yard will soon be bursting with blossoms - a parade of spring bulb, cherry, magnolia, rhododendron, peony, iris, lily ....... a feast for the senses.
We look forward to welcoming you back.

Just spent two wonderful days at Beachside Garden B&B! Immediately upon arrival we felt welcome in Verna & Warrens home. Sufficiently set up to allow maximum privacy as well. The food and snacks were excellent & graciously shared recipes as well. Sharing local knowledge of the area made for two exceptional dining experiences. Will defiantly recommend this B&B to our friends.

By far one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. The welcome was oustanding, with super friendly hosts. The experience was outstanding and only surpassed by the outstanding views.
Very clean and breakfast was wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. My only negative was that was a little out of the way, but if you want peace and quiet, it is the place to be.

The hosts Warren and Verna are most kind and hospitable. They are extremely attentive to the needs of their guests and the breakfasts are wonderful.
The rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean, as were the bathrooms.
In my opinion,the entire property is first class.

Room Tip: Choose any, they are all very good.
