Location

North Saanich, British Columbia, Canada

Our neighborhood is in the country and close to Coles Bay beach. It is quiet, secluded with many areas to go for a stroll, power walk or run. The golf course is across the street from us so we are surrounded mostly by trees, lawns and rural vistas.
We have many wild birds, bunnies and deer that visit the property completing the country feeling.

My husband Howie and I will be your hosts. My mother, Jan and step father, Maurie Turner completed building their home in 1978. This was intended to be and became their dream home. They have always wanted to create a bed and breakfast but never got around to it. My mother, unfortunately passed away in 2014. We are now full-filling her wish to open her home to guests from around the world to share and enjoy the beauty of Vancouver Island that we have had the privilege to call home for over 50 years. We are in a two phase process. We are opening the first suite in our house at the moment and will have an 1100 sq ft. guest home on the property available by spring. We are continuing my mother's love of flower gardens to create an inviting yard to sit and relax on a warm summer evening or pull a ripe apple or plum from my mother's fruit trees. I owned and rented a guest cottage in California back in the '80's and had so much fun and many wonderful memories with our clients. We look forward to meeting you and creating new ones!
