Oh, and you might run into our two kitties on the property, Birch and Tubby ... they're brothers and almost always together. We hope to see you soon!
  • Clean and comfortable space with an incredible view. Great location for exploring the Shawnigan Lake area.

  • Lots of perks, thanks. Beautiful property. Boutique hotel quality. Great communication. Friendly owners who respect privacy.

    Eric2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for tranquility this is the place! nestled within a forest you feel far away from it all. Jim is lovely as well and even met us at the gate so we didn't get lost.

    Milli2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking to spend some relaxing time in the mountains, this is your place. Jim was very friendly and easy to communicate with. The space itself was clean and cozy (we especially loved the bedding), and we even woke up to snow in the morning! All in all, we had a great time and highly recommend checking it out.

    Tanya2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very cozy stay here, Jim was super helpful and responsive to all our needs. Would highly recommend!

    Sophie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely weekend away. We needed time out of the city to be around nature and have some quite. This was our favourite airbnb by far. Jim did amazing little touches like providing spices for cooking, and little treats for us. The bbq on the patio was perfect even though it was freezing outside.

    Jo2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing! The location and space was perfect. The hosts made me feel very at home and had so many nice personal touches in the apartment. They even left goodies for me and my dog Wyatt. And they even babysat my dog while I was out at an interview! I also forgot my toothbrush and there was a brand new one waiting in the bathroom! Such great service. Really was the perfect stay! Would 100% recommend! Thank you!

    Kate2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was absolutely perfect! Jim was really helpful and he made us feel at home! :) We might go back! ❤️

  • Jim is a fabulous host! Attentive, but also respects your privacy. We have stayed in about 8 airbnb's and this is by far THEE BEST we have stayed in. This space has everything you need and more. Feels brand new and everything is in top working order. It is just like the pictures and then some. Great WIFI and cell service. Really comfy bed and nice linens, good shower, top shelf appliances and loved the dishwasher! The Great Trail is right off the property and lots of hiking close by. Spectacular views of mountains, ocean and some city lights far in the distance. We had a full moon and star gazing was a treat! Fantastic deck and grill. This is a perfect spot for quiet and solitude. It feels like you have your own house as it is tucked away and planned for privacy. Our only regret is that we didn't plan to stay longer. If you want value for your precious vacation time, this is the place. A home away from home. We found it perfect!

    Pamela2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We love staying at Jim’s and Wyatts!! The location is incredible and they are the best hosts! The place has everything you need and more and the stay is always perfect. We can’t wait to come back again!

    Nathan2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Jim and Wyatt's. Their place was beautiful, clean, and well equipped. Would definitely stay here again!

    Cleo2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here with my sister and parents (and their dog) for my Dad's 80th birthday. The suite was beautiful, peaceful and spacious. We had such a lovely time in the sun, rain and snow. Jim was such a thoughtful and responsive host. Lovely walks right out the door for you and your K-9. Looking forward to returning one day. Thank you Jim and Wyatt!

    J.N.2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I came up with our two dogs and my Mother-in-Law so she could see the beauty of Vancouver Island. Jim and Wyatt's place was perfect for our stay! It is very clean, open, and comfortable . . . and a huge bonus for us was being so close to The Great Trail. Each morning, we'd take the dogs and spend an hour or so exploring out there before going about our day. The kitchen was well-appointed - we made all of our meals there and had everything we needed. The beds were super comfy, and we really appreciated the armoire in the bedroom as well as the space in the laundry room, so we could keep our stuff out of the way. The views from the place are wonderful, and the south-facing windows meant that we had lots of natural light. We could see the Olympic Mountains from our bedroom and living room, and loved seeing the sunrise each morning! Jim an Wyatt were so friendly and welcoming to us and our two dogs, and were very accommodating. They have a plant nursery on site, and we loved seeing all that they had growing there. The setting is a bit out of town, so we just planned to be out for the entire day and return in the evening. We chose this place specifically because it appeared to be peaceful and quiet and a nice respite from the city - it was exactly that, and we would 100% stay there again.

    Jessica2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is, by far, one of the best units we’ve ever visited. Jim is an excellent host. When fog settled in on our arrival day, Jim stood at the entrance with a torch to make sure we didn’t get lost. The flat is filled with the sorts of things you need, as well as little touches that make you feel at home. There is a binder full of local ideas, and Jim can direct you to many more. The place was so clean and tidy, and we never felt out of place. There’s a gas fireplace that’s great for winter. The view from the front window has mountains, forest, and ocean. You can’t ask for more!

    John2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was the tranquil space we were looking for. Friendly, private and beautiful. Right beside the perfect wilderness trail for the pups. I hesitate to say how truly amazing it was in fear that it will be all booked up for our next visit to the area.

    Jenny2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space with amazing views. Simple check-in, with printed out instructions always available along with maps and pamphlets. Lots of recommendations for fun activities and sites to see.

    70” TV!!! Stay & play up on Bear Mountain! Enjoy your very private, unobstructed view of the 18th green Valley Course at the Prestigious Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa. Relax in this lovely, bright ground level suite. No stairs, & parking is at your door. Make use of the kitchen with full size appliances & everything you'll need to cook up a meal! Then sit back & enjoy the 70 inch TV or listen to music on the BOSE speaker dock.
    * We are not located down town Victoria. We are located 20 minutes North of Victoria in the heart of Bear Mountain Village, Langford BC. A good idea is to map the area prior to booking to ensure the location is optimal for your stay. If you are at all unsure of our location, please contact Alicia prior to booking. **Children are always welcome and we are happy to provide toys, games and videos to use during their stay. Please be advised that although infants are welcome here, the suite is not 'child proof', meaning there are no covers on the outlets or child locks on any door or cabinet. The living room is very spacious and can easily accommodate the twin air mattress provided should guests wish to set it up.
    Right in the heart of the Bear Mountain Community, you will be within walking distance to the Hotel, coffee shops, North Langford Recreation Center, Jacks' Pub and Cold Beer & Wine store. If you are an avid biciclist, the Bear Mountain Bike Park is right out your front door. There is so much to do and enjoy here! Our property borders Ecoasis undeveloped land as shown in the pictures. This means plenty of parking and privacy! Our home is situated on the corner lot of two no through roads. Traffic is light however service vehicles do enter the Ecoasis ( undeveloped Bear Mountain) property from time to time. Our home is a corner lot. There are no homes directly beside or behind ours. There is an undeveloped condo building across the street that may give guests the impression we live in a construction zone! This is not the case. Bear Mountain execs halted the project over 10 years ago. There are plans in place to get the building completed in the future, however please know that it is for all intents and purposes, abandoned. Because of this, our street and home is very quiet and PRIVATE!
  • I really enjoyed my stay at this location. I booked in last minute but Alicia took care of everything & place was very neat & clean.

    Deepanshu2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place and amazing location, very clean. Alicia was quick to reach out too. Loved staying at this place.

    Navchetan2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Alicia made us feel welcome and at home during our stay. The apartment was sparkling clean, had comfortable furniture and obviously receives a lot of care. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the island!

    Sarah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place! Will certainly go there again! The place was so clean, and well done. It had the luxury of hotel style service, but with much higher quality, and access to more space.. The bed was so comfortable too! I highly recommend staying here, you will have no regrets.

    Jordan2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Alicia was welcoming, gave us our space and halo helpful notes in her welcome brochure.

    Sadie2020-02-01T00:00:00Z

    Take your time out and enjoy the outdoors at it's best. A relaxing adventure is waiting for you. Stay at a unique off grid property in the middle of nature. We offer a cozy cabin with wood stove and loft. Explore the farm animals, go for hikes (awesome trail and Trans Canada Trail is just 500m away), go bird watching, visit the Beaver Dam or just enjoy the peace and quiet. The perfect weekend get away or place to stay to fill up your energy. Help on the farm is always welcome, but not a must.
    Our Homestead is secluded in the forest on the foot of Sooke Lake Watershed. We are 4km away from our next neighbour. The cabin has a queen size bed up in the loft and a pull out couch in the living area. The cabin has a full kitchen and we can offer you indoor plumbing. Of course if you like, you can still use the outhouse :)
  • Conny and Gary are so welcoming, warm & friendly and their delicious breakfast is the nicest touch possible. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the cabin, the energy restoring atmosphere, and all the friendly furry friends!

    Janina2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • My son and I visited Gary and Connie last year around the same time. He has been talking about “the cabin” ever since. This year there was much more snow but the cabin was warm and amazing to stay in. Connie and Gary are great hosts and they took the time to acquaint us with the changes in the farm and make us feel at home. As usual the breakfast was amazing. Next time we hope to stay longer. I just want to sit in the chair on the porch for hours! Thanks guys!

    Hamish2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Visiting Conny’s ranch was an incredible and very authentic experience, and the hospitality was very genuine and warm. The cabin was super cosy and the breakfast was fantastic...BEST EGGS EVER! We are already planning our return :)

    Susanne2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Conny and Gary were very welcoming. Their farm and the animals bring a sense of peacefulness and being off the grid in a cozy cabin made us truly feel on vacation :). Breakfast is a must, thank you!

    Lisa2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Conny’s cabin! The space is clean and very cozy. The property is beautiful and very secluded. Conny is a wonderful host and breakfast was delicious!

    Taylor2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for an amazing getaway! We loved the place with the full kitchen and beautiful farm. The home made breakfast in the morning was also a highlight! Very kind hosts who showed us around and took time to chat :) will stay again!

    Emily2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous visit with the fresh earth smells, antics of the farm animals and the company. A good night sleep in the cozy cabin then breakfast with fresh buns and homemade jam was thoroughly delightful. A great getaway from hustle and bustle with opportunity to immerse in rural life and nature. We highly recommend this experience.

    Nola2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a cozy and lovely place to stay! We found the place no problem with the directions our host provided us. As soon as we entered the gates to the homestead we knew we found a perfect off the grid getaway. Geese and chickens greeted us with our host. The cabin is chic and cozy. A loft above the kitchen and bathroom has a double bed that will provide you with a delightful nights sleep. The complete kitchen allowed us to make a meal without having to bring any cookwear or utensils. We stayed warm by tending to the wood burning stove, although an additional heater was provided to us of we decided to not use the stove. We had forgotten about breakfast until our host was on our doorstep with delicious scrambled eggs, warm buns, a variety of cheeses and jams, fresh squeezed orange juice, and fragrant coffee. I would definitely reccomend this place to anyone looking to disconnect and enjoy the walking trails through the woods.

Highly recommend!

    Layla2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Kirsten’s home is beautiful and immaculate, and located in a scenic area. It immediately felt like home as soon as I walked in. The only regret I have is not being able to stay at her place longer! She provided thoughtful amenities that helped my family and I get settled in quickly. I highly recommend her place for your next visit to Victoria.

  • I absolutely loved the place. It's amazing and lovely. It has a wonderful view. We took a tons of pictures just outside of house. Marina is a great host, she is a absolute sweetheart. Extended our stay saying we might be exhausted. I loved everything.looking forward to stay again when we visit Victoria.

    Samskruthi2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great wooded location. We had a great time during December holiday season. The place was heated well and very clean. Our host Marina was very responsive and made our stay memorable. We really enjoyed the woods and the walking trails around the neighborhood. It would be great if the property got a living space for our family of 7 guests.

    Water's Edge Cottage is perched on a private beach in the picturesque Saanich Inlet near Victoria, BC. Surrounded by forest in a tranquil setting with unobstructed ocean views and breathtaking sunsets this is a perfect getaway location. Cape cod inspired decor, thoughtful amenities, large windows and a wrap-around deck make this a very comfortable and cozy retreat. Hiking, biking & kayaking at your doorstep.
    This well appointed cottage has all you will need for a relaxing and memorable getaway. The kitchen is stocked with all appliances including a dishwasher, blender and coffee grinder, and staple cooking ingredients. Sip your morning coffee and lazily take in the beautiful ocean views while lying in the very comfortable queen sized bed. The wraparound deck offers lots of room to lounge in the sun during the day or to gaze up at the stars at night. Dine el fresco and use the barbecue and outdoor beverage cooler.
    Set on Sannich Inlet, the cottage is minutes away from some of the area's best hiking and biking trails, as well as the world famous Butchart Gardens. Launch a canoe or kayak from the beach and enjoy a scenic paddle to Brentwood Bay Village.
  • This place was more than we could hope for. Set beautifully just by the water, we saw seals and otters almost daily, the cottage was clean and full of little details, with a large kitchen equipped with all necessary equipment, a comfy bed, and of course the floor heating in the bathroom. You can walk to the beautiful national park just around the corner, it‘s a 30 min drive to Victoria, and the Red Barn Market has all the local products you need (try their own double amoked bacon!). Bethany was responsive to all our questions and just a very nice host. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a quiet getaway in nature.

    Marlene Maria2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect. We had an amazing stay! We were so impressed with the personal touches that Bethany included and the open communication. We could not have been happier and loved every bit of it. We spent as much time as possible on the patio watching the local wildlife swim by. We will be back!

    Alison2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • If looking for a quiet retreat away from the city this quaint cottage was lovely. The neighbors and waterfront were mostly quiet during our stay. The cottage has a lovely deck and dock for taking in the sunset. However, if you have any mobility issues, this may not be the cottage for you. There are many steps down to the cottage as well as a very steep hill to ascend/descend from roadside parking if you do not have a 4 wheel drive. Bethany was quick to respond to all questions before and during our stay. There was a welcome gift upon our arrival with local treats which was a nice touch. It's a nice cottage for two looking to escape for a few days.

The location was amazing, with uninterrupted views of the water, it felt as if we were in our own little bubble. Bethany did an amazing job at welcoming us and went above and beyond in every aspect of this place. I really hope to visit again one day!

    Claudia2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with fantastic hosts! Enjoy the wild life and private beach. Lovely tiny house to rest a few days and totally relax with a beautiful view. Lovely details everywhere in this happy place. Thanks a lot to Bethany and Craig for this wonderful piece of paradies. Would come back definitely!

    Gabriel2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cottage on the water (literally on the water) and feels exactly as advertised. You feel like you’re in complete isolation yet close enough to amenities to make the stay perfect. Bethany responded incredibly quickly, and the cottage has great little touches to make it feel like home.

    Preston2019-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible location with a really thoughtful and communicative host.

    Matthew2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is lovely! Great views, gorgeous property and comfortable accommodations ideal for 1-2 people. Wonderful place to get away and spend some quiet time by the ocean. Highly recommend.

    Byunghoon2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • As every other review says, absolutely stunning patio! Better come prepared to bbq - not doing so would be a huge miss on your side. We chose the place because of the patio, but the house is great as well - spacious and clean. Living room sits comfortably 6 guests and is a great space to hangout together or watch TV. Kitchen is well stocked. Beds are comfortable. Gordon is a great host. He is very passionate about his place and was always ready to answer our questions and drop by to help us figure things out as needed. Overall, great experience staying here and would love to come back!

    Daria2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay in. Clean, spectacular view. Owner was great! Will come back...

    Joe2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This house and location is simply amazing! Gordon was the perfect host. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay special. The house is truly spectacular. What you see in the pictures is really what you get. I can't think of a better place to stay and enjoy the beauty of Victoria in a special setting, and in real luxury.

    Steve2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome time at Gordon’s home. The view was spectacular and the home was super clean! Gordon was an excellent host with very quick communication. We will definitely come back again.

    Michelle2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in Victoria on numerous occasions but wanted something a little more scenic and comfortable. This exceeded all expectations for our trip. Easy drive to Victoria to shop and eat. Majestic view, ultra comfortable surroundings and a congenial host that made you feel like you were at a luxurious resort. Completely private, even with the owner on the premises. Like a genie, he was immediately available if you need anything but invisible otherwise. A dream vacation, absolutely perfect. This home will provide all you need in all ways, if not, Gordon will do his best to provide it. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience.

    Jean2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gordon’s place is a really special find. The views from all over the house are truly amazing. The house had everything we needed for our family and Gordon was available for all of our questions. We highly recommend this property.

    Yelena2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and a group of friends stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was exactly what we were hoping for! Relaxing, clean and spacious, the Sunrise Orchard was ideal. We were coming from Victoria, and it felt far enough away to be a mini vacation, but without having to spend time traveling. Gordon is an enthusiastic host and greeted us as we arrived. He lives just next door, so when we needed assistance with something he was over to help in under a minute! I would recommend staying here and would love to come again!

    Ryan2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very beautiful and highly recommended. My friend and I spend two nights there and we loved the view from the treehouse. You should bring your sleepingbag cause it can be very cold at night. Unfortunately we could not meet juli and Meron in person.

    Caroline2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cool experience to stay in a treehouse overlooking the water. Right down the street was a beautiful hiking trail. Its a fairly easy drive from Victoria, about 35 -45 minutes depending on traffic. Close to Butchart Gardens, which was definitely worth checking out!

    Patrick2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here with my two dogs! The waterfront access is amazing, and Meron was a great host. Treehouse is small but had everything I needed.

    Michael2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful trip, it was exactly what we expected and were looking for. Definitely an experience and what a blast! Thanks for hosting us, the barge trip was an excellent bonus!

    Hilary2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse was very comfortable with everything we needed. But most importantly, we had a great experience because of all the lovely people who where out there aswel. We arrived on a saturday and were so lucky to be able to enjoy an amazing BBQ and first class view on the fireworks of Butchart Gardens!

    Isabel2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Micro treehouse in a little slice of paradise. First thing we did when we got down to the cabin was jump off the dock into the bay! We stopped off at the red barn to buy groceries for the stay. We napped, painted, took photos and relaxed. We followed the road until the end, there the road became a provincial park. We saw deer, raccoons, a baby mouse, dog mermaids, crabs, starfish and many birds. Great place to disengage and reconnect together. (Beds not ideal for people with back pain issues)

    Heather2019-08-10T00:00:00Z

  • We loved our weekend stay at Joanne and Dean's adorable little place! This was a perfect place to stay with kids - outside space to play, quiet surroundings, and a fun loft space. The location was great. Rural and minutes from lakes and the ocean but also close enough to city life. We appreciated all the special extra touches from our hosts, including little Valentine's treats for our kids. Dean and Joanne were very friendly and helpful but also respectful of our privacy. We will definitely stay here again!

    Jen2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

  • Absolutely adored The Loft at Sea Aira! Prior to arrival, Joanne was quick to reply and happy to answer any questions we had. The check in was flexible and very simple. The space is located near to the historic Butchart Gardens, spectacular Durrance Lake, fabulous hiking trails, and all of the amenities of Brentwood Bay. The space is a carriage house and very private. Very tidy and lovely with a fully equipped kitchen for everything you need. The bed was extremely comfortable with quality linens and the bathroom had luxury towels with heated floors (bonus!). Joanne and Dean were exceptional hosts and there when you needed them. We greatly appreciated all the personal touches and the thought put in. We had a fantastic stay and highly recommend!

    Alicia2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Our waterfront oasis is in beautiful Brentwood Bay, complete with king & queen beds, it's own swimmable beach, dock, shared hot tub, and a five-star spa, pub & restaurant close by. Only a few extra minutes gets you to local shops, a bakery, grocery store and the famous Butchart Gardens. Bring your kayak/paddle board or borrow ours! Coming by boat, car, or bike? We have parking for all three! 20 mins to Victoria, 10 mins to airport, 15 mins to Vancouver ferry. Walking distance to a bus stop.
    This suite has a private entrance overlooking the ocean, new kitchen (added February 2018!), dining table, sitting area, 2 separate bedrooms (one with king-sized and one with queen-sized bed), a private deck with outdoor dining area that is steps from the ocean. BBQ and outdoor fireplace. There is a hot-tub overlooking the ocean (shared with one other suite). There is a TV with cable and Netflix. In 2018, we also renovated the master bedroom to include a closet area and new window. We also renovated the laundry room and added a large storage area that has all of the kitchen gadgets you might need (slow cooker, toaster oven, blender, various sizes of pots...perfect for boiling your catch of crabs and local spot prawns). We have a couch with chez and available blow-up mattress should additional guests be joining you. There is also an adjacent 1 bedroom suite (complete with full kitchen) with an adjoining door that can be combined so as to create a 3 bedroom rental space. Let us know if you want details. **Please note- the suite is on a waterfront property and and on the lower, water side of the house. There is a sloped driveway and several stairs to get down to the entry door of the suite and then more stairs to get down to the beach. While there are railings on all stairwells, accessibility may be difficult for those with mobility challenges.
    Brentwood Bay is a lovely village with all of the basic amenities available- excellent restaurants (three on the waterfront), pubs, bakery, butcher, grocery store, pharmacy, gift shops, coffee shops, yoga studio, a five star spa, liquor store and cold beer and wine shop to name a few. There are fantastic beaches, hikes, water-side walks, fishing, water sports, world-class scuba diving (complete with local scuba company), the famous Butchart Gardens, Butterfly Gardens, local eco tours, and more. Other local activities include paddle board yoga, kayak tours, and glass-bottom boat eco tours...to name only a few. Brentwood Bay is only 20 minutes from Victoria but gives you easier access to the amazing outdoor adventures that Vancouver Island has to offer.
  • Sarah & Dallas have a beautiful place right on the water that I can’t wait to visit in the summer!

    Martin2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy getaway. Beautiful sunsets. Great hot tub. Friendly owners.

    Philip2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful, modern, reasonably priced suite right on the water of Brentwood Bay. It was the perfect location for visiting Buchart Gardens. We also discovered lovely shops and restaurants nearby. The host was so very helpful with restaurant recommendations in Brentwood Bay and in Victoria. If you have a car, you should consider this area a bit outside the frenzy of Victoria, but close enough to drive in for shopping and eating. The suite had every detail covered and it was very quiet for sleeping.

    Kara2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • I really like staying here.

    Jessica2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful space for our family of four (two kiddos ages 5 & 7) during our holiday vacation! Everything was as described and beyond! Clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Many thoughtful touches made our stay extra easy! Location is perfect and beautiful. Centrally located to everywhere we wanted to go. So much to see and do within a short driving distance. Communication with Sarah was clear, prompt and helpful with local tips when we asked for recommendations. Thank you for sharing your space with us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and couldn’t have asked for anything better!

    Hannah2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second time staying with Sarah and Dallas. They are great hosts and the place is absolutely perfect. Very comfortable and well equipped. Will be back and definitely recommend!

    Jen2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem of a place! The hosts are very generous with their time and amenities. The suite is lovely and had everything we needed for a comfortable little get away. King bed is comfy!. We plan to return and highly recommend Sarah’s place.

    Tyler2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had a wonderful stay at Sarah's. It was right on the water, spectacular views from the hot tub and patio overlooking the bay. It's close to the Brentwood Bay Resort/Spa - we spent an afternoon getting massages and had a lovely lunch there. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you might need. It is a very clean and comfortable space. If it had been warmer weather we would have gone out on their SUP, they also have kayaks to use. We did make use of the firepit by the water one evening and had an amazing view of the stars from the dock. We would definitely keep it in mind for our next visit to Brentwood Bay.

The suite is a completely separate building with a deck and little picnic table backyard space that is shielded and offers complete privacy — a rare feature these days! Selina and Andrew are fabulous hosts, offering all the necessities with additional sweet touches that made the place really feel like home. My few nights there was a gift from my mom for my birthday, and I used the time and space for a music writing retreat — I couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing, quiet, clean and homey experience. It was so special. I would go back in a heartbeat.

    Susan2019-09-12T00:00:00Z

    Experience the Canadian countryside as you would imagine it to be. Stunningly beautiful, a slight breeze...... Views of the ocean (Finlayson Arm fiord) stretch all the way to the Olympic Range in Washington. Snuggled into a quiet rural area in the heart of wine country we are surrounded by wildlife. We share this acreage with deer, quail and this year in particular, eagles which are nesting Only 50’ from the house. We respect your privacy and welcome all nationalities. Sarella

Looking south one can the fiord and hills all the way to the Olympic Range in Washington State - hiking - whale watching - Damali Lavendar Farm & winery - First Nations Historic town Chemanus - unique place surrounded by forests and overlooks the ocean - tranquil and quiet
    We live in a quiet, rural neighborhood surrounded by forests with spectacular views that stretch to the Olympic Range in Washington. It has what you would imagine the Canadian countryside offers. Deer and quail are seen every day, and this year we have an eagles nest only 50’ from the house The sleepy coastal village of Mill Bay is 15 minutes to the north and we are 35 minutes to the township of Victoria. Set in the wine country of Cowichan Bay. Your privacy and comfort is my goal. Smoking OK outside
  • Sarella went out of her way to make my stay effortless and enjoyable. The location is seconds from the water and in a beautiful location. Relaxing and invigorating.

    Ben2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing experience to stay at this place. The apartment was nice, cozy and clean and had a great view of waters. Sarella and Patrick gave us the full privacy and responded very quickly to our texts when we had any request. The amenities inside the apartment were good enough and thoughtfully arranged. We would love to come back here.

    Rohit2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • The view! The view is stunning! What a perfect spot to anchor our exploration of the Cowichan area and eastern Vancouver Island! Sarella & Patrick have created a lovely tranquil environment that is a joy to inhabit after a day of roaming the vineyards and lakes of Malahat, Mill Bay, Shawnigan Lake and the Cowichan valley. Great hospitality in a great setting - what can be better than that!

    Leigh2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • The photos can’t really do this place justice. The view is amazing, and the apartment is modern, well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. Little touches like lamps and tissues on both sides of the bed, along with enough power outlets, really make a difference (for us at least) when traveling. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and bathroom (which has a tub as well as a shower.) Also, the hospitality was beyond compare. Sarella contacted us beforehand to ask if we had and dietary restrictions (we do), and had a delicious breakfast bread, fruit, and vegan butter waiting for us. While we were there, there was an eagle nest with a fledgling eagle that would perch on a limb waiting for the parent to return. It was all we could do NOT to sit there all day, watching the eagles and enjoying the view and the peaceful water feature.

    Susan2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sarella and Patrick were gracious hosts. The place is so beautiful and peaceful. We hope to come back and stay here again in the future.

    Rony2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Sarella really is a superhost, providing us with lots of recommendations for our stay and a place with a garden and view that will stay in our memory for some time. And the humming birds seem to like it too. Besides that, it was very comfortable with many thoughtful touches. Would definitely stay here again!

    Kathrin2019-07-02T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful place! We loved it :)

    Alexa2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Paddy's place is beautiful, new, and immaculately clean with a gorgeous view of the Saanich Inlet. It's a bit outside of Victoria, so it's very quiet. The bed is super comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked. Highly recommend! Thank you Paddy for a wonderful vacation.

    Sonja2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The view is spectacular & changes regularly. The apartment is clean and light and feels spacious. We appreciated the many little touches & attention to detail...like many hooks to hang things on and little storage boxes for your needs. The bed is really comfy and the sofa bed is also comfy and really easy to put away in the day. This place is worth the trip. Shawnigan Lake is great for swimming-so clean and the temperature is mild. As long as you have a car you can access shops, hiway, and lots of sights within easy distance. Highly recommend future travellers to stay. Very helpful hosts.

  • Sparkling clean, wonderful decor and an outstsnding location in the wilderness. Couldnt have asked for a more beautiful place for the 3 days.

Just a relaxing place to start everyday with an adventure. You can stroll the farm and meet our animals, go for hikes (just 500m to the Trans Canada Trail), book a trail ride with one of your great horses, go bird watching, visit the Beaver Dam or just enjoy the peace and quiet. The perfect weekend get away or place to stay and fill up your energy.
    Our campsites are perfect if you are traveling the Trans Canada Trail and need a place to stay over night? We do offer a cabin to rent as well, if your back needs a break from sleeping on the floor.

  • My dream of having a remote ranch is Here!!! My Hosts checked on me to make sure I was getting there safely, then made sure I was set with firewood & water! So Kind!! I woke to the sound of horses, chickens, and Pigs! I do suggest a High clearance vehicle as this is 5k onto gravel roads & nothing else around. I definitely plan to return!

    Tara2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • The road in is a little rough and I'd recommend having a truck over a car. Camping areas are bare bones and you won't have much in the way of utilities, but if you come prepared to camp out you will have tons of privacy and some wonderfully silent nights away from the noise and light of the cities. Your hosts will be very accommodating. We pretty much had pick of where we could setup to camp, water was brought down to us when we needed some, and wood was available to burn. We went horseback riding on the second day and the horses were very calm and good for a couple who had pretty much no riding experience. The area is quite scenic and we enjoyed to the ride. I'd recommend the stay to anyone who is prepared to get in and isn't afraid to camp on the land with minimal amenities.

    Justin2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice Host. They were very friendly and showed us their beautiful ranch. The ranch was cozy and the campground had everything we needed. totally recommended.

  • Fantastic place. Fantastic views. It really was as good as the pictures in the advert. Fantastic also to see a bit of the local wildlife with deer in the garden and a lovely seal visiting us on the jetty. Host was on site while we visited, a lovely guy and really helpful. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

    Debbie2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Clean!!! Incredible location and view. Comfortable beds and the ocean and private dock are incredible. We’d be thrilled to stay again.

    Colleen2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! We met the host at the door who gave us fresh fruits! the house is great and clean with a lovely view of the ocean. It is also very very quiet and relaxing. We met several groups of deer hanging out in the backyard which made our day extra special. I highly recommend this if you like to stay near the Butchart gardens and then relax with a view at the end of the day.

    Kimia2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • This air bnb has one of the most spectacular views of the Saanich inlet and the host was most gracious. The space is open and airy to compliment the views. The private deck for relaxing, reading, eating or sharing a glass of wine is perfect.

    Felecia2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! It was newly renovated and spotless clean. It had a fully equipped kitchen for cooking and dining. Very nice view and balcony, facing the water. The beds were comfortable. Check-in was easy, and the host was responsive. Recommended.

    The suite is very bright and super private, the den has large windows looking out to the forest - no curtains required! Hear the birds singing and watch hummingbirds feeding all day long. The suite is decorated with Canadian made furnishings and artwork some created by local Native artists. Enjoy the large kitchen, dining room, and the massive dark sleepy bedroom. The covered private deck complete with Hammock and Dream Chair to enjoy while overlooking the treetops ")
    The most unique thing about this space is that the parking and entrance area are not visible from the road - making it very private. The Sweet Suite is the lower part of a 10 year old home perched atop the Malahat Mountain. It's a private and picturesque locale with tree top views, close to nature where hummingbirds abound. There are a few stairs in the suite so guests must be physically mobile. The Private Entrance is monitored by a code lock. The entrance to the suite is in the living room next to the gas fireplace. You could be welcomed by a lovely, warm fire (upon request). There is a clean, comfy (pillow topped) queen sized bed in the darkened bedroom on the same level as the bathroom. There is also a hide-a-bed and single bed in the den with french doors for privacy if required. Clean linens are available for all sleeping spaces. The huge windows will make you feel like you are in a large comfortable tree house. Even in the hot summer, the suite stays nice and cool.
    The world renowned Villa Eyrie Resort & Restaurant are at the top of the mountain at the end of the road (a 2 minute drive). They offer a beautiful dining experience with spectacular views, I highly recommend their breakfast menu. When you are ready to get into the forest with your feet, there is the lovely little known Spectacle Lake Provincial Park (just go right around the corner at beginning of Ebadora Lane). It's a stocked fishing lake (two different types of fish), occasionally you will come across people fishing from the rocks. It has an easy walk side (on the right) or you can follow it to the other side which is slightly more difficult, it takes only about 45 mins to walk around the entire lake. If you are feeling more adventurous and have a few hours, you could follow a trail to an even bigger, man made lake deeper in the bushes it's called Oliphant - you will likely not see anyone on this hike (maybe a bear or deer tho)...the trail head is at the end of the right side trail around the lake. There are many things to see and do in the Cowichan Valley from Cidery's to Winery's to floating on the Cowichan River to checking out murals and totem poles. Type "tourism cowichan" in your browser for many ideas of things to see and do in the area. I recommend the Kinsol Trestle it is the largest wooden trestle in the Commonwealth of Nations and one of the highest railway trestles in the world. If you would like to get a good idea of the area and distances to surrounding highlights like Mt. Baker, Vancouver and the USA, turn North at the highway, there are 3 lookout stops over the ocean, hold out till the 3rd one. It's a right off the highway where the rock splits, there is an incredible view there, especially on a clear day - also, there is a map with the views around and distances to them.

    Quiet property, shared with a gentle old horse, named Chip. Close to the lake and a 3 minute drive to the Cowichan Trail, connecting to the historic Kinsol Trestle, for hiking or cycling.
    We are a short drive to various Cowichan wineries. 30 minutes to Duncan and 40 minutes to downtown Victoria.
    This is a usually quiet neighbourhood, which gets busy in the summer months with boating and other lake activities. We are 10 minutes away from a public beach and our small village, with a great cafe, bakery and vintage shops.
  • Great spot to relax.

    Korey2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely couple of nights at Mary Ann’s cozy loft, and our only regret was we didn’t stay longer! It is such a peaceful, private hideaway, immaculate and nicely equipped with all you need. We so appreciated the spaciousness, and loved sitting up on the deck with a coffee or glass of wine. Mary Ann has thought of everything, including little extras in the fridge. And it was really nice to chat with Glen about the area, and get visited by old Chip. Super hosts, and a private, immaculate space among the trees...don’t hesitate to book this cozy loft! Thank you Mary Ann and Glen

    Lori2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious and lovely. MaryLou and Glen are welcoming and friendly. Chip is quite nice too. The space has everything you need and more. Great stay.

    Wesley2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mary Lou provided all we needed for breakfast The house is very quiet, in the trees and well equipped, with two balconies with armchair and there is a lot of space outside. We got all information we needed Michele and Patrick

    Michele2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptionally clean, beautifully designed, stylish and super comfortable place. Indeed, a Cozy Loft! We had a short stay and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The friendliness of he hosts made our stay even more enjoyable. They have a beautiful and gracious horse, Chip, who was welcoming us every day. MaryLou went above and beyond to create a great stay for us. We are back home with great memories and will definitely return back, but for a longer stay. Great place if you want to recharge, feel closer to the nature (forest, lake), but at the same time being close to city amenities.

    Oksana2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mary Lou and Glen are amazing. They make you feel like you are family. They went above and beyond for us. The pictures of the loft do not do it justice. It is amazing. When we were sitting out on the deck having a beer we felt like we were in a tree house. So quiet, except for Chip (the horse). Felt like we were in the middle of nature. It is only 2.8 km from the exit point on the cowichan Valley Trail, which mad it appealing for us, as well as we could only stay one night. We will be back in the near futer for a get away. Truly amazing. Great value for money as well. I will also add that Sarpinos delivers there and the pizza was great.

    Jan2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • A unique stay - beautiful and private, not to mention outstanding hospitality from hosts. We would definitely stay here again!

    Ben2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

    Located in the heart of Goldstream Park just 5 mins from amenities in nearby Langford, this rural forest setting is 20 mins from downtown Victoria. Close to the city but a world away, hiking trails, streams, waterfalls and ancient trees await.
    This is a unique fully furnished private 2 bedroom/1 newly renovated bathroom suite located on two forested acres with stunning forest views, cozy open concept living space and gorgeous deck overlooking a creek lined with ancient Red Cedars. This space is a Nature lovers dream, located at the base of beautiful Mt. Finlayson in magical Goldstream Park. The two private bedrooms have queen sized beds comfortably sleeping 4. There is a private deck for resting, painting, meditating, forest gazing, birdwatching or dining. The cozy open concept living space is great for socializing while cooking, complete with woodstove for a cottage feel. There is a dishwasher and in suite washer/dryer for your convenience - we will provide laundry and dish soap to ensure the soap is eco-friendly (we are on a septic system and we cherish our deliciously clean well water).
    This is a country setting, in a small micro-community nestled in the centre of the park. Neighbors are friendly and welcoming. We are across the road from Mary's Farm & Sanctuary - with horses, lamas, goats and more, trails and spectacular views of Mt. Finalyson and the Estuary. Farm visits are by donation, if you are interested please inquire. Goldstream Park has much beauty to offer, breathtaking waterfalls, many hiking trails, ancient forest giants, and during the yearly salmon run the park is home to many majestic Bald Eagles and you might just have an intimate encounter.
  • I would thoroughly recommend staying at this cottage. It is in a superb location in a forest setting with frontage to a running stream. The cottage is very comfortable and clean and we were made very welcome. Thanks Kristen and Rudi

    Deborah2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • We spent Christmas in Shadow Fin Inn and we had a very nice time there . The location is perfect for hiking in the surrounding area. The house is spacious and was perfectly clean at our arrival. We would highly recommend this place !

    Clement2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice time at this place! Kristen is a great host, provided us with lots of tips about the area. The house was very well equipped, very clean and a bonus - we enjoyed the deer, squirrels and birds in the garden. Unfortunately although located at the provincial park, we have heard the highway.

    Zuzana2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! The house has everything you need and more. Beautiful interior leaving nothing to be desired. Beautifully located in the middle of a forest with a large patio to enjoy nature. Rudi and Kristen are absolutely gracious hosts and provided us with many thoughtful details like shampoo and detergent and useful tips for things to do and see. We are experienced travellers but this was the best vacation home we ever stayed in.

    Adrian2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Every part of our stay here was wonderful! Located an easy half-hour drive outside Victoria, Kristen & Rudi's space feels a world away from anything. A huge deck wraps around the house, with a table for outside dining and lounge chairs for staring at the trees/stars/deer in the yard (trust me - you can loose hours out there). Full kitchen, beautifully renovated bath and laundry facilities have everything you need to feel at home. Super comfy beds and couches, and beautiful local art fill the home. Kristen pointed us in the direction of a waterfall that was an absolute highlight of our trip. It would be an honor to go back here some day <3

    Emily2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Exquisite nature (with easy access to outdoors) comfortable and well appointed accommodations, warm welcome and helpful hosts....this spot could not be better! And the bed I slept in was a dream! Thank you, Kristen and Rudi!

    Marc2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the Shadow Fin Inn was a very serene and relaxing experience. Kristen was a very helpful and gracious host. The property offers all of the amenities that anyone could ask for. The living area is spacious and clean and provides a very homey feel. The outdoor deck is relaxing and provides a wonderful forest view. We even saw a few deer one morning! The property is located adjacent to Goldstream Provincial Park which is well worth exploring. Shopping and restaurants are about 5 minutes away for your convenience. We took advantage of the full kitchen and prepared most of our meals. I highly recommend the Shadow Fin Inn for anyone planning a trip to the Victoria area. You won't regret it.

    Only a walk away from Butchart Gardens, my home is located in Brentwood Bay, BC. The property is on a quiet cul-de-sac and backs on to Butchart Gardens. It is close to the Mill Bay Ferry which can be taken from Brentwood Bay to head north on Vancouver Island. There are many walking trails to the ocean, available in the area. Luggage and pick-up service available, between 10am - 7pm, if pre-arranged.
    My home is a 4 level split with a front and side entrance. The bedroom for 2 guests has a queen size bed with a latex mattress. There is a half-bathroom ensuite. The shower/jetted soaker tub in the main bathroom would be shared. If a single person is booking, the bedroom used has a double bed and access to a full bathroom. I have a basement suite which is occupied by a single person.
    One can walk to Brentwood Bay where the shops are. Butchart Gardens is a 10 minute walk, Tod Inlet is a 30 minute walk, waterfront restaurants and hotel, a 20 minute walk.
  • Diane is a relaxed and experienced host. Her bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen are comfortable. I felt welcome, enjoyed getting to know her animals, and slept well. I can recommend staying with Diane.

    Elizabeth2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Diane is a great host! Her home among tall trees is very comfy, and her dog, Bella, and cat, Mr. Mew, helped me feel very much at home.

    Susan2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • This home is clean and comfy. There is stairs. Diane will get you anything you need. Makes a great coffee, which you can enjoy on the huge deck. Good location in Brentwood Bay and very quiet area.

  • Very nice stay at Diane who is a really charming and caring person. We enjoyed our exchanges and she was a great help during our stay. The house is perfectly clean, the terrace is great and the room is comfortable with an adjoining private toilet. The bay mentioned in the pictures is 5 minutes walk and the Butchart Gardens 10, very convenient!

    Caroline2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • best host ever! no kidding Diane's house is totally a home should be like. clean and warm yet old school with classic decorations. there's a magical kitchen with every thing you need and things over your imagination. thanks to Diane I can have a taste of traditional Canada. be well and I will be back next time!

    Nianxing2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Diane’s house is in such a great location! It is a quick walk to the Butchart gardens, and Diane has a map of a shortcut you can take to get there. It is also a short distance to the bay that has a beautiful view and hosts several neat restaurants. Diane’s home is super comfortable—the bedroom window has a blackout curtain and the house is in a quiet neighborhood in case you are a light sleeper like me, and the guest bed is super comfortable. Diane was super nice with neat tips on getting the most out of your stay, and super accommodating with my travel itinerary. She has a dog and a cat who are well groomed. The place doesn’t smell like pets;) I have a slight cat allergy, but didn’t have a problem at all with her pets (even though I petted her cat several times). Her dog Bella is such a sweet obedient dog, and fun to be around! In all, it was a great stay, and I highly recommended!

    Tirzah2019-08-23T00:00:00Z

    Albert2019-08-11T00:00:00Z

The room was quiet, clean and spacious, the bed was amazingly comfortable. We loved meeting Bella the dog and Mr Mew the cat, who were very well behaved and welcoming themselves :) Diane's place is an easy bus ride to downtown Victoria, and walkable to the pub in Brentwood Bay, and the stunning Butchart Gardens. Highly recommended to others. Thanks again Diane for a wonderful stay.

    Nestled off the scenic Malahat Drive, this 53 acre waterfront estate offers amazing peace and tranquility. Very private yet located only 25 minutes from downtown Victoria, 15 minutes from Brentwood College & major shopping, dining and services.
    This property offers total peace and quite with only the occasional boat or kayakers passing by. Every room from the house has access to the deck which which overlooks the water and the opposite side of Finlayson Arm is a Provincial park so you are looking at only water, mountains and greenery! Drive in, fly in or arrive by boat the choices are yours.Kayak rentals and salmon/halibut fishing can be arranged with prior notice.
    There is plenty of sea life to enjoy from either the house or the shoreline,sea otters, crabs, star fish are among the many wonderful sights. Occasionally whales have been spotted passing by so keep a sharp look out, you don't want to miss that opportunity! Deer are plentiful so don't be surprised if you see a family on a regular basis. It is not advisable to feed them.
  • What can you say - The view is better than advertised, the home is modern, clean, and spacious! The kitchen is well-appointed - previous travelers and I'm assuming the owner, have left condiments and staple so you can make most meals on short notice. There is a caretaker very nearby who took care of a slight maintenance issue immediately and with great communication! Have I mentioned the view?! Location is private and secluded, and yet you are only 10 - 15 min. from restaurants, stores, parks, and fun things to do; also only about 25 min. from downtown Victoria. Just book it and enjoy!!

    Derek2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kurt’s house was absolutely amazing. It was exactly what we were looking for and needed. It is very private, relaxing, clean, and the views of the water cannot be beat. We loved the long drive down to the house and the privacy. We also enjoyed that the house is close to Mill Bay and Victoria where there are plenty of restaurants and things to do. The house is sparkling clean. The beds were very comfortable. Everything about our stay here was perfect. We especially enjoyed the seals that sleep on the dock each day. Hopefully we will be back someday.

  • Beautiful retreat for absolute privacy on Vancouver Island. Just 30 min from Butchart Gardens and downtown Victoria.

    Sarah2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful place. We would definitely come back. The listing doesn’t do it justice. Views are amazing! We had a minor snafu with a miscommunicated checkout time, but was a small blip on an otherwise blissful stay.

    Tim2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation is extremely recommendable. It will exceed all your expectations! The river outlook is absolute fantastic and enjoyable from each room.

  • If you just get one thing from this review, let it be this: YOU HAVE TO STAY AT THIS HOUSE! It is absolutely stunning and by far the best Air BnB I have ever stayed at! It is very secluded but just 15 minutes from Victoria. My wife and I went with our 1 year old and a couple of friends with a baby the same age. We all consider ourselves adventurers and planned to spend most of our time out of the house (hiking, exploring, etc). However, we loved the house so much, we hung out there more than anything else. The house's layout is perfect for little ones because it is all one story. You will need to babyproof it a little but that is to be expected. I personally loved all the windows. It brought in a lot of natural light and of course the beautiful scenery. Having the sliding doors in every room was nice too because it gave you access to the large deck wherever you were in the house. The wildlife was definitely the kids favorite part. They were fascinated by the deers who would get as close as 15 meters from us. We saw a mommy deer and her two fawns on the property so often that we named them. Also, every day we were there we saw at least one seal or otter loitering in the water below. I can't say enough about what an awesome experience it was to stay at this home. It was very difficult to leave and I think the adults cried more than the kids. Thank you again Kurt for everything and hopefully we will be up your way again soon.

  • Kurt’s place in Malahat BC is a hidden gem away from the hustle of modern city life that will make you loose track of time in the best of ways. If you keep your eyes and ears open you will see deer, killer whales, seals, eagles and a bunch of other wildlife. The house is perfect and makes you never want to leave.

  • This was an unforgettable experience for my wife and I. Just perfect for day tripping and then relaxing. Enjoyed every minute.

    Our beautiful cottage is just 20 min from downtown Victoria. Your busy day in town or the surrounding area will end with the quiet reward of a front porch in the forest overlooking a pond where you can see the fish jumping. Comfortably fits two-four people with a full kitchen, BR, washer, dryer, wifi and tv.
    Our main house is on the property, and close enough if you need us, but you'll be quite private.
    We are close to many amenities but you will need a car. The Victoria airport and BC Ferries are about 45 minutes away. Shopping, golfing, hiking, ocean or lake beaches, restaurants, pubs and many more activities are within our community.
  • Could not recommend this place anymore. Absolutely stunning. Incredibly homey. Outstanding hosts. We stayed there for our wedding and it made our special day all the more special to be able to relax there.

    Rae2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was a really lovely place to stay - close enough to explore Victoria yet secluded enough to feel very private, peaceful and quiet. It is nestled in a beautiful forest with a great deck for sitting out to watch the wildlife at the pond (and sheltered from the rain :), yet still close enough for a very quick drive to all the amenities you would need. Also close to some great hikes, waterfalls, and swimming holes! The cabin itself was very clean and well equipped. We had a great stay at Stephanie's cabin nestled in the woods! We would love to have the opportunity to stay again!

    Abby2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing calm and quiet spot in a beautiful peaceful area. Super cute and clean cabin directliy in the woods. Great!

  • I would need pages to accurately describe and reflect the high level of hospitality, assistance, and architectural beauty and design we experienced over our 3 day, 2 night stay at Allison and Alex’s amazing home. As a home it is clean, bright, beautiful, with outstanding personal touches and art throughout the house. Yet, it was warm, comforting and so enjoyable to stay in: the most comfortable beds, high ceilings with large windows, the nicest linen and towels, and too much more to mention. From the gorgeous views to the layout of the house, to the beauty and comfort of every single room....all light and bright throughout, well furnished with any and all amenities and comforts anyone would need during their stay. Alex and Allison are the best Airbnb hosts we have ever encountered; quick and personal responses, assistance that went above and beyond expectations, and such genuine kindness and warmth. They made our stay there a highlight of our lives, and this is not an exaggeration. We will definitely be back again, to enjoy the beauty of the area and the warmth and hospitality of our hosts.

    Lisa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • The house is exactly as advertised and more. The house is impeccably clean and the rooms are very well decorated. It had everything we possibly needed and if more was asked for, Alison provided. She responded quickly and was very kind. You will not be disappointed by your stay here. The views are amazing!

  • These hosts go above and beyond! I’ve been using Air BNB for awhile and never had such thoughtful gracious hosts! While this location is outside of Victoria the peace and quiet was worth it!

    Shaina2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • As a very frequent user of Airbnb the attention to detail, and all the extras Valentina & Richard provide are fantastic. I spend 50 percent of my year in AIrBnb's these past few years mostly in Ontario and the Territories for work, and none of them come close to this level of detail. I was previously happy just to just find coffee available. From the breakfast selection to the kid toys that were available, it was amazing how comfortable this small space was for 5 people. They truly have thought of everything. Highly recommended

    Kevin2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolute pleasure it was to stay in Casa Mia Victoria. Valentina & Richard made us all most welcome and our accommodation was beautiful. There is everything you could possibly need and everywhere was spotless. Such a beautiful location too.

    Julie2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Mia was my first air B and B experience and wow have they set the bar high! They were excellent hosts and even greeted me at my car when I arrived and walked me to the suite to show me around. They responded very promptly to any questions I had and had. This was a way better experience than what I expected and I preferred staying here than a hotel 100%!

    Kiana2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a genuinely fantastic place. Very clean and modern with plenty of space. Some of the most thoughtful hosts I have ever seen (they've thought about everything you could need). Richard was very personable and fun to talk to. There were also deer in the front yard both when we pulled in to the driveway and when we left.

    Bernardo2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • It feels like home with a friendly greeting right away. The space is a separate entrance and large basement apartment. I was very impressed by how many thoughtful details were put into the place. Backyard oasis, laundry space, updated appliances, comfortable beds, Netflix, breakfast and everything you would need for a comfortable stay. It's was further into the woods then what I thought but really enjoyed as I love nature. There's a small town about 8 mins away though with grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Thank you Casa Mia for welcoming us to your home. We loved our experience!

    Elyse2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • It was our first time renting on Airbnb, so we truly did not know what to expect. This guest suite is so far above anything we could have expected or hoped for. Valentina and Richard are the consummate hosts and just wonderful people. The suite is so tastefully decorated and all the little extras were so thoughtful. It was so impeccably clean, that we felt right at home. The beds were so comfortable that we had not slept this well in years. We sat out on the back patio, under the stars, and simply communed with nature. The breakfast food provided to us for our first day, was invaluable, as we did not have to rush out for groceries. It was a magical treat to see the deer, the cats and the rabbit up close. We absolutely loved our experience, and definitely intend to go back. We have nothing but good thoughts and memories of this place.

    Steven2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best of the best. Very clean and big spaces. Price is reasonable. We arrived in the late night, just plan the self check in. Surprisingly, Richard was waiting near the entrance and gave us a good introduction. The suite is so clean that we almost feel guilty if we make any mess. After the stay, we changed almost all possible bookings from regular hotels to airbnb for our following 2 week vacation. Thanks Valentine and Richard.
