“Best Place on the Island”
Reviewed 1 December 2010

The Island serenity bed and breakfast is a cozy, relaxing studio suite. You can't find anything better. Large comfortable king size bed and also includes free internet and long distance calling. The suite also includes a washer and dryer and a great kitchenette. There is adequate supplies for a quick breakfast and timmies coffee
in the morning before your start. The view from the outside garden patio is the best.
Enjoy your stay.

This is a wonderful place to stay, and our second visit. We have stayed here approximately 2 years agfo as well. Kevin & Edna have a delightful place, with its own garden teeming with hummingbirds and other feathered friends. It is not a typical B&B, they stock the fridge with some basic items and will typically bring some fresh baked items at some point during your stay. For us, this is perfect - free to do things at our own pace. The unit is down a long flight of stairs, and has its own private entrance. There is a kitchenette unit with a normal refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and hot water maker. Outside is a gas grill with a side burner which works wonderfully. The sleeping area also has a sitting area. The bed & pillows are quite comfortable, and there is both ample heat and also air conditioning available in addition to the ceiling fan which helps circulate both. There is a lovely closet which also houses the mini-office with computer and internet access (wireless too) and fax/printer/copier. The suite has a full bathroom, and full-sized washer & dryer, perfect for an extended stay or for refreshing one's wardrobe after adventuring.

We find this a lovely spot to base our day-trips throughout the Cowichan valley on Vancouver island. This is a nice quiet spot in a quiet neighborhood for a couple, or perhaps a solo traveller. This would not be a suitable place for kids (adults only) or more spirited revellers. There is only a single suite, so a larger group can not be accomodated here. The long stairway does limit the accessibility of the unit as well. These mentions are not to dissuade you from this place, but more intended to make sure you know what you are getting. For my wife and I, this is a perfect spot, and the value is incredible. We will certainly return the next time we venture to this area.

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a very good experience. The property is well maintained and comfortable. It was great having access to a kitchen, washer and dryer and computer, all included in the room rate. There is also a lovely deck area that is beautifully landscaped. The owners have great taste, everything from the building materials to the plants and bird feeders were high quality. The whole environment is quiet and relaxing. The location is central to many island attractions with lots of stores and places to eat within easy driving distance. Not a big deal to us but housekeeping is not available and there is a long steep flights of stairs you must go down to get to the rental unit. I would definitely stay here again and would reommend this to anyone that can do stairs. There is a portable air conditioner unit available but we never needed it. Edna's scones and muffins were very good.

kevin6866, Owner at Island Serenity Chemainus Bed & Breakfast / Vacation Rental, responded to this review, 18 September 2012
Island Serenity offers features of Bed and Breakfasts, Vacation Rentals, Hotels, and Executive Suites. As advertised and discussed with this booking, one of our most desired features is we respect your privacy and do not enter your suite during your stay. Of course clean linens are always available upon request as noted inside the suite. The stairs in question have 11 inch treads and a 7 inch rise, which is very common, safe, and comfortable for most individuals. We always assist with luggage with your permission.
