“The Feeling Of A Family Visit”
Reviewed 5 weeks ago for a stay in September 2018

There is a comfortable family feeling here. Karey's warm welcome and walk around the property is only the beginning of a wonderful stay. Lovely gardens and the ocean a short walk away. Great local restaurants nearby. Accommodation were clean and upscale, everything you would need. They went beyond. Little extras everywhere like in the bathroom drawers just in case you forgot something. Warm home made croissants with Karey's pear jam was the best and a visit with Wallie her new puppy was precious.You will feel like family.We will stay here again! Thank you Karey for a wonderful stay.

“Quaint Retreat with awesome Hosts!”
Reviewed August 27, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We stayed as a family of 4 and enjoyed this quaint and serene retreat away from the city. Hosts Karey and Howie provided 5-star services and we were delighted every morning with freshly baked treats! We found the place to be clean with functional facilities for a family with a washer/dryer, kitchenette and fridge stocked with the basic groceries! We would definitely recommend this for short or long stays!

“Magnificent”
Reviewed August 22, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We only stayed one night. Karey was great, pleasant, helpful, gracious. The room, and bed were very comfortable. Coffee, tea, creamers, and biscotti were supplied as well as luxurious robes. The bathroom had everything we needed, and more. We left too early to partake in breakfast. The photos are accurate. Really the only thing I would suggest would be easily accessible outlets on each side of the bed for charging devices.

Thank you for your very kind comments! I'm glad you enjoyed your short stay. I appreciate your suggestion for charging. We've been thinking about it so I will check into it. We're also looking into a two head directional light above the bed for reading.
All the best and we hope to see you again! Especially for breakfast.

“Excellent place and hosts”
Reviewed August 1, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This is the best vacation house we have ever stayed, excellent location, beautiful surroundings, and every kind hosts. The rooms are very well set up with everything you would need. Karey was very welcoming and she made absolute the best croissants and cookies! We had our breakfast in the beautiful backyard. My kids enjoyed reading books the hosts prepared. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely stay here next time if we come to this area. Thanks Karey and your family!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 10, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We arrived from up Island, and our stay was only for two days, but this was an excellent choice. We wanted to stay away from the sterile chain hotels, with their "cookie cutter" rooms and amenities. Our choice of Coles Bay Resort was excellent, from the surroundings to the superlative breakfast in the morning!

I would highly recommend Coles Bay Resort, (and in fact have already done so among friends who regularly travel to the Victoria area).

“Away from the summer crowds but convenient to everything.”
Reviewed June 25, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We wanted a comfortable and quiet place near Butchart Gardens. Coles Harbour was that and more from Karey's delicious croissants in the morning to the lovely walk down to the beach area to watch the sunset. It was a quick drive to the Gardens and to the many restaurants in the area. Quite a memorable visit - thanks!

“Outstanding hosts and amazing stay!”
Reviewed June 20, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Amazing hosts who truly care about their guests! The cottage was superb and the preparation for our arrival was outstanding. Thought and care put into every detail. The morning croissants and fruit were a great way to start our day.
