Hi, we're your hosts, Laurie & Faye and we're excited to be opening our new," Ultimate BnB" bed & breakfast. The unit is perfect for 1 or 2 people and is located on Vancouver Island (ranked # 7 In the Best Islands in the World: Reader's Choice Awards 2015 by Conde Nast magazine) on the Westshore of Victoria BC, Canada. Check out the photos and details below then use the Contact Us form to secure your booking. You never know, a stay at Ultimate BnB just might be your ULTIMATE getaway!
We think the best holidays include rest & relaxation, pampering, and joyous discovery. Our wonderfully appointed private and fully self-contained ocean-view suite has been carefully designed and outfitted to meet those ideals. Cleanliness, comfort and thoughtful details are just the starting point. Our 5-star concierge-like service is the difference maker:
•Need a lift from the airport or ferry terminal? We can do that!
•Need a restaurant or theatre recommendation? No problem!
•Need directions to 2 Jack Nicklaus designed world-class golf courses just 15 minutes away atop Bear Mountain? We can help!
With many years of award winning hospitality service in tourism, we understand the tiny details that can make a vacation fabulous.
Away from city noise yet minutes to shopping (Big Box & Outlet stores), hiking, golf, and many south-island attractions, we feel our vacation home is a perfect choice. Off-street parking and private entrance allow for a come-and-go-as-you-like vacation. The pampering begins with soothing warmth that greets your toes from our gas-fired in-floor radiant heating system and the humidity controlled HRV system completely recycles fresh-air every 4 hours. As well, our on-demand hot water boiler means you'll never be out of hot water and complements all our home's enviro-friendly mechanical systems. As you awake, reach for the remote control, lower the window coverings and take in the breathtaking ocean view. Step up to the window and enjoy the vista before you:
•the 565 acre old-growth forest and lagoon at Royal Roads University
•Fisgard Lighthouse at historic Fort Rodd Hill National Park
•The City of Victoria
•Cruise ships, freighters and plenty of marine traffic
•On clear days, marvelous Mt. Baker and the Cascade Mountain range just behind the San Juan Islands.
Oh, and in the evening, enjoy the same view with the added bonus of twinkly city lights beneath starry skies while relaxing in the soaker tub. Magical!
Ultimate BnB is equipped with Miele and Bosch appliances, Natuzzi Italian leather chaise lounge and swivel chair, solid wood furnishings throughout, tasteful art selections and accents that reflect this gorgeous part of the world you've chosen to visit. Your kitchen is well equipped and ready for a culinary adventure or… warming pizza; you choose! Missing something? Just ask, we'll do our very best to help.
The bed is a queen-sized leather-framed Scandinavian design and there's plenty of closet space. The tasteful décor found in the bathroom sets the scene for more pampering. The glass door on the shower allows for taking in the view while the Maax Jazz tub was chosen to allow for a ‘pleasurely' satisfying soak. A convenient ‘towel-tree' stands beside the Italian granite topped maple vanity.
Need a little space after a long day of ‘togetherness'? That's where the separate Den comes in. There's a desk for writing a letter or e-mail. (There's reliable, no-charge Wi-Fi/Internet throughout the suite). A comfy love-seat to curl up on and read a book or…? For a romantic evening, curl up back in the living room in front of the fireplace and enjoy Netflix, listen to iTunes, YouTube or? A great time to crack open an award winning bottle of Vancouver Island wine; there are many to choose from!
Outside you will find 2 large terraces surrounded by understated greenery so as to not detract from the magnificent panoramic views. Patio furniture is available in-season and a natural gas barbecue is available in summertime.
Some notes about being pampered:
•We only have one rental unit so guests get our undivided attention. That's why we chose the name Ultimate BnB
•Ultimate BnB is a self-catered bed & breakfast experience. What that means to us is that when we travel we like to operate on our schedule and we like knowing ingredients for the most important meal of the day are supplied, ready for us and are included in the price. The self-catered option allows us to do that. We can create a romantic gourmet brunch after a glorious sleep-in, or grab a toasted bagel, glass of orange juice and a piece of fresh fruit at 7:00 a.m. on our way out the door to whichever adventure the day may hold.
•You can't miss our lovely productive garden when you arrive. We happily share seasonal offerings when they are available and the garden-bed outside your suite is filled with fresh herbs…please help yourself.
•In the kitchen, award-winning locally roasted coffee from Caffe Fantastico, Silk Road Teas, jams/jellies, vinegar…
•Toiletries (Aveda hair products, Salt Spring Island Soapworks)

Guest access

Ultimate BnB is a private, fully self-contained suite with private entrance and a self-catered (i.e. have what you want when you want it) breakfast is included in the price.

Interaction with guests

Your guest suite is situated on the first floor of our home. We live just upstairs and will be readily available to answer questions, provide information, and do everything we can to make sure you have an 'awesome' visit! Please NOTE: Our home has 3 levels. We live on the top level so there is an entire level between us and your suite. Your suite is very quiet and private.

Other things to note

Please do not smoke anything/anywhere on the property. Also, we love animals but due to allergies we regretfully have had to adopt a 'no-pet' policy...sorry!

We are a legally licensed Bed & Breakfast. As such our permit is for 2 adults only so, sorry but no kids allowed. Also, we ask that hours between 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM be observed as quiet time. Just general respect for person and property is all we ask of any guest. Please note: We understand that accidents happen and we understand about normal 'wear & tear'. "Stuff Happens!" We would far rather you bring something to our attention so we can deal with it and make it right than to have it left unreported and we discover it later.

This was the PERFECT honeymoon destination! Private and secluded, luxurious, attention to every detail and the most gorgeous setting, private hot tub and a view out every window (bedroom, bathtub, living room/kitchen). We savored every moment and scrapped some of our plans to visit local attractions because we didn't want to leave this breathtaking haven! Gorgeous walks to a castle and flower gardens on the university campus, and down to the water. We would recommend this place for any romantic getaway or retreat and hope to come back!

Wonderful hosts! They made sure we had exactly what we wanted for breakfast. Made a point on checking up about our allergies. Beautiful view from living room, bedroom and hot tub.

The place was great and I would stay again. Pros: Amazing views, hot tub, nice unit layout, quite setting, hosts provided excellent breakfast options, new unit with updated features, great location for exploring the west coast of the Island, proximity to trails and nature. Cons: Bed is not comfortable enough for current price point, unit is somewhat isolated from downtown Victoria (short drive). The unit overall is a great place to spend a few days. The views are amazing and the hot tub was really nice.

Response from Laurie:
Hello David & Shannon, We are so sorry you found our bed to be uncomfortable ... it's such a subjective thing. Here's a direct quote from the review left by folks who stayed here immediately prior to you: "The place was very clean, the bed was super comfy, and everything you could possibly need was thought of..." It's so hard to anticipate the tastes of each of our guests...but we certainly try!

Thanx Rochelle! Glad you 'survived' what sounded like a pretty hectic week at RRU! Perhaps next time it will be a holiday!

It's too hard to decide on where to start with how great Laurie and Faye's place is to stay at! My wife and I came here on our 1 year wedding anniversary and it was nothing short of perfect. We have stayed at a few Airbnbs that look fantastic in the pictures, but fall well short of that once we arrived. I could not complain about a single thing during our stay. The place is quiet and cozy and has every amenity you could think of needing while away. I was able to easily cook a full 3 course meal, do laundry, and relax in the living room...just as if I was at home. The views are spectacular! Especially when you are able to wake up and at the push of a button, pull the bedroom window shades down to watch the sunrise. The view of the bay from the hot tub cannot be explained in a way to give it justice (we even saw deer in the backyard while we were in the hot tub)! Laurie and Faye made sure to walk us through the place when we first got there and made sure we were comfortable. After that we spent the next 3 days together as if we owned the whole house. It felt as if we were the only ones there as Laurie and Faye stay on the third floor and we were on the first. They graciously sent us a text half way through our trip just to check on us, which I found to be a great touch to add to the hospitality. For anyone coming to Vancouver Island/Victoria, this is the place you want to stay at. It is only a short and scenic 20 minute drive into downtown Victoria and 5 - 10 minutes away from a number of hiking trails and beaches. The next time we are traveling northwest, we are making sure that we stay a few nights here!

Response from Laurie:
Hi you two, We're not sure you can know what it means to us to get this kind of review. Thank-you hardly seems enough but it's a place to start! What's really cool about it is that when we set out to do this we wanted to create a place where people could have a 'truly romantic getaway'. Based on this it seems we're having some measure of success. But mostly, we just want to thank-you for taking the time...we know what it's like to get home and get back to busyness and never quite get around to writing that review. Thank-you both!!

What a great vacation! My husband and I stayed for a long weekend for our second anniversary. We were looking for peace and quiet and definitely found that. Also, the view was absolutely stunning. The house is located in a residential area that was very mellow. There were great walking and running trails nearby and you can walk down to the beach. The best part was Faye and Laurie's attention to detail with the way they stocked the place! Overall, I would highly recommend staying here!

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon on Vancouver Island, and this space was one of the highlights of our trip - easily the most superbly planned and executed AirBnb listing that I have been a guest at (and I have stayed in many). Laurie and Faye clearly devote plenty of time and energy in anticipating the needs of their guests, and meticulously furnishing the quarters with beautiful and high quality appliances, furniture, and decor. They have every single base covered, providing things that I didn't even know that I needed - until, of course, I needed them. If you are ever in Victoria, or just passing through the area, do yourself a favor: book here! You won't regret it.

Laurie User ProfileLaurie is a superhost.

About Us: Your hosts at Ultimate BnB are Faye Wardrop and Laurie Ingalls. It took nearly 40 years for us to find each other; another 3 years to ‘test the waters’ before taking the plunge. We married on July 15th, 1995 at Sooke Harbour House, a lovely seaside resort just down the road from our current home.
Putting together our Ultimate BnB has been a labour of love. For us, it has been one of those ‘someday’ projects…one we were never quite certain we would actually get to do.
Faye: “I come from a business background but my interests include music, food, gardening and travel. In the mid to late 80’s I was the GM at an import/export wholesaler in Winnipeg MB. It was an exciting time for me because we were among the first companies in Canada to develop trade with China and other countries in the Asian Pacific region. Laurie and I met in 1992 at an industry trade-show in Victoria, BC. While ‘testing the waters’ as Laurie likes to put it, we joined forces and began to grow our tourist retail business, Maple Leaf Gifts. We operated 2 gift shops that anchored either end of the Victoria Conference Centre in a perfect location right next to the famous Empress Hotel. We loved meeting people from around the world and many came back to visit us year after year. I must have made an impression because I was nominated for the City of Victoria’s hospitality award and won it 2 years running. After the successful sale of that business in the spring of 2002 we took some time for travel before launching our current consulting practice where we fill the CFO(Chief Financial Officer) role for a small group of business clients.”
Laurie: “I share many interests with Faye, but with a twist. I am a former professional musician. I graduated Grant McEwan University in Jazz performance in the 80’s while Faye was learning international trade! As an owner of Southern Sound Recording Studios I worked in sound engineering and production. I recorded albums for a variety of artists and worked on radio and TV commercials for both regional and national accounts. I have released an album and a CD under my own name as well. Several years back I was fortunate to be part of Victoria’s Jazz-Fest as a member of the George Essihos quartet when we opened for Downbeat magazine’s male vocalist of the year, Kurt Elling at Alix Gooldin Hall. In 2000, we were invited to appear on CBC Radio’s weekly jazz show ‘Hot Air’. I posted one of the tunes from that show on YouTube and you can find it if you search for: Laurie Ingalls – Interplay.”
Faye & Laurie - Why we chose Victoria: “We met in Victoria. Like most transplants from elsewhere in Canada, we each, for separate, yet similar reasons looked to ‘find a way’ to live in the most beautiful part of this great country and to be able to enjoy its temperate climate year round. Truthfully, we simply wanted to escape those ferocious and legendary Canadian winters!”
