While planning our wedding, we were eager to find a venue that spoke to our sensibilities, while not costing an arm and a leg. My new wife sent a short email to Karey and Howard, and I'm so glad she did! We couldn't have asked for a nicer, more supportive couple to help and accommodate us for our big day!
Right from the start, Karey and Howard did everything they could to welcome our crazy families into their home. We had an amazing day, and they both worked hard to make sure everyone was happy and taken care of.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Karey and Howard. We are forever grateful to you, as well as your amazing bed and breakfast, for providing us with everything we could have hoped for, and then some! Thanks again!
Rebecca and Chris McLeod
Our stay was delightful! We were welcomed with warm and gracious hospitality, and offered well appointed, comfortable and spacious accommodations. Many extras were thoughtfully provided at every turn to make us feel at home, like delicious warm blueberry muffins upon our arrival. Coles Bay has a small beautiful wooded park to wander through, and a hidden beach to explore. The area is quiet and pastoral, and offers a great base for the Saanich area.

This is our first trip to Vancouver island. We stayed for a total of 3 nights and there were 4 adults. Karey and Howry are great hosts and made us feel very welcomed. Every evening, we looked forward to return to a warm and comfortable place to rest after a long day out. The place with 2 bedrooms and a living room is just perfect for us, giving us enough space. The location is great, 30 mins from Victoria and less than 15 mins to great restaurants in Sidney. It is a nice and quiet place, away from the busy Victoria and definitely a great place to rest for the night before heading out for new adventure the next day. It is also near to Butchart garden. Karey prepares good breakfast and we get to specify what we like for breakfast. Thanks Karey and Howry for a great vacation.
This place has all the charm of a country home, while still having the modern amenities that today's guests are looking for.
We enjoyed our stay, and look forward to coming again.
