All the amenities I needed and more. Very comfortable, immaculate and relaxing. The view is amazing and wish I had more time to spend there. I will definately be back. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Hope to go back again and again, the place is private, modern, clean and has everything you'll need. It was so quiet and the bed was wonderful, so was the coffee! The hosts have really thought out this accommodation to make your stay perfect.

The kind hospitality of our hosts and the ultimate in accomodation made our stay at Island Serenity over the top. This quiet facility has absolutely everything you could ask for including free computer, free phone calls, washer and drier, private deck and barbeque, very comfortable king bed and good kitchen and bath facilities. All this and a gorgeous view included of the water beyond the professionally landscaped garden. Chemainus is close by with lots of good restaurants from which to chose. Instead of "breakfast at 8" the hosts provide food for breakfast as you request and this leaves both guests and hosts free of time constraints. This aspect appealed to us in this completely private facility. We highly recommend this delightful place.

Room Tip: You won't find a more appealing vacation home!

We have stayed at a number of B&Bs, and Island Serenity is by far our favourite. We've stayed there several times, and will continue to do so in future.

Edna and Kevin have thought of everything. Apart from the usual furnishings you should find in any accommodation, they provide all kinds of extras, such as a fridge stocked with beverages, condiments, etc., utensils like scissors, plastic wrap, etc. The bed is wonderfully comfortable with high quality linens, and the large screen LCD t.v. is mounted in the top corner of the room for easy viewing in bed, complete with tons of channels via their satellite service. They also provide a computer with internet access, and a phone with free long distance within North America. And the bathroom even has a washer and dryer, along with laundry soap, etc. Edna provides a delicious breakfast.

The suite has its own private entrance, and breakfast is provided in the suite. Kevin and Edna are only a phone call away, though, and always check in to see if we need anything.

There is honestly not one thing we can think of that needs improvement. It's a perfect spot, and we can't recommend it highly enough!

My husband and I recently returned to Island Serenity for a two-night visit after spending one night with Kevin and Edna last year. Everything was as clean, well-organized and comfortable as we remembered, and this time around the weather co-operated so that we could also enjoy their beautiful garden with its views of the ocean and its visiting quail. On both our stays we have been made to feel very welcome. The suite is peaceful and we would agree with the other reviewers that the amenities are much more than you would expect - having access to a computer with internet definitely makes things easy for last-minute planning, and Kevin and Edna have accumulated an abundant reference library of local information. The only thing not available is a stove, but there is a microwave and a BBQ with a side burner, so that's a very minor thing. Kevin and Edna's restaurant tips mean we probably wouldn't have cooked even if a stove was available!!

While the suite is so comfortable that you might not want to leave, we've found the location is great for exploring Ladysmith, Cedar, Yellow Point, Chemainus, Duncan, and the Cowichan Valley. We hope to return soon to this "home away from home".

To Edna and Kevin,

I combed all through the internet and then found this: Breakfast and Bed.

It’s called “Island Serenity” and just the place for us be be.

We came from very far away and only had two days to stay.

But ‘whale watching’ it had to be, so we prolonged our little ‘spree’.

Our hosts helped us in every way, when we went to Cowichan Bay.

But coming ‘home’ was a real treat, since everything here is so neat.

Sun deck and garden are a beauty - we guess that Edna/Kevin is often ‘on duty’ to keep all this pretty and orderly as well as the house - a real sight to see!

We felt so happy and well cared for in the ocean house of the the ‘open door’.

We hope to come back from no matter how far, to “Beautiful British Columbia”.

Many Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Anne & Gunter Zenk.

I felt as comfortable at Island Serenity as I do in my own home. The suite is exceptionally finished and exceptionally clean. It is also very well organized. The hosts have thought of every detail to ensure a pleasant experience, including things like an automated night light to guide your way to the suites private bathroom. You are encouraged to offer suggestions that would improve your stay, but I couldn't think of anything else. Not only did we enjoy generous coffee provisions, they provided treats and drinks. As an insomniac, I appreciated the use of a computer with internet in a separate room as well as a separate kitchen area, both apart from the bedroom. The bed is king size and comfortable and I slept well. Telephone within Canada and the US is free ! While I didn't need it, the use of a clothes washer and dryer could prove to be a helpful amenity.

I found Chemainus to be an excellent location for sports activities, including proximity to great scuba diving, kayaking and golf. Hosts Kevin and Edna helped with useful suggestions and went out of their way to make us feel at home.

I think staying at this B&B helped me recharge my batteries during a much needed vacation.

Room Tip: The suite is completely self contained and apart from the main residence. It appears to be very well...
