Beachside Garden B & B
Ranked #1 of 8 Ladysmith B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2011

We stayed at the Beachside Garden B&B this past summer with four of our children. We rented all of the rooms so not only did we have complete privacy in new and spotlessly clean rooms, but the view was spectacular! Warren and Verna were particularly obliging and gracious,the breakfasts were gourmet,and the room rates were reasonable. We highly recommend!

Stayed: July 2011, travelled with family

Thank you so much for your kind review. It’s our great pleasure meeting you and your family. We were very impressed by your kindness (you and your wife), the cohesiveness of your family, the courtesy of your children, and the creativity of your son. We hope you have enjoyed our beautiful Vancouver Island, both the east coast and the west coast. We look forward to your return.

Like many of the other reviewers we had an excellent couple of nights at the Beachside Garden B and B. It is located next to Elliot's Beach so swimming and snorkelling are possible during the warmer months. A kayaking excursion we took from Ladysmith stopped at Elliot's Beach and the hosts of the Beachside thoughtfully took photos of us from shore as a momento. Breakfasts are top notch, the hosts are very open to food/beverage requests, and the grounds/building are clean and modern ( WiFi available). The hosts, Warren and Verna, were outstanding with their hospitality and knowledge of the area and we would not hesitate to return again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Peony Room which is at the back of the house and has a view out onto the ocean - id...

We are delighted that your enjoyed our breakfasts and facilities; and that you had a wonderful kayaking excursion – the scenery around Elliott Beach and Ladysmith Harbor is spectacular, and the water crystal clear. We enjoyed making your acquaintance and were delighted to be able to provide the information you needed. Thank you so much for your review, and we look forward to seeing you again.

My wife and I stayed with Warren and Verna for 2 nights. I would recommend them to anyone driving through Vancouver Island. The house overlooks the bay with steps down to the water front. The water is crystal clear with ochre sea stars on the rocks.
The room was spotlessly clean (we stayed in the largest of three). The guest accomodation, all ground floor, forms a separate wing of the detached house.
The hosts are welcoming and helpful. The area is peaceful and quiet about 20 minutes by car from Ladysmith centre.

We are so happy to have met you and to help researched information on the marine life and water birds in our neighbourhood. Yes, the water here is amazingly clear year round, and the star fishes are plentiful and colourful - the orange and purple ones are simply gorgeous!
We hope you would return to visit our beautiful Vancouver Island, and it will be a real treat for us to see you again.

A beautiful B&B.. All three rooms are on the ground level. No Stairs... There are gorgeous gardens and it's right at waters edge. So peaceful and quiet. Only a few minutes from the highway between Ladysmith and Nanaimo. Your hosts, Warren and Verna, are so hospitable and the breakfasts were amazing. We were two couples and stayed for three nights. Every mornings breakfast was different and so delicious. This building is quite new and they live in half of it. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back when it's time to visit our Canadian Families again. We live near Seattle and took the Coho Ferry out of Port Angeles to Victoria. From Victoria to Ladysmith is only a little over an hour and a beautiful drive. Enjoy this beautiful place and great hosts....

Room Tip: Only three rooms. We had the Magnolia Room with a walk-in shower plus the tub. Loved it! All thre...

It’s a real pleasure meeting you and having you and your family stayed with us; as well as meeting your Canadian families, our neighbor in Ladysmith. So happy you have enjoyed all the breakfasts, and we were more than delighted to share some of the recipes with your wife. We are also happy to have shared our common interest in gardening. Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us and for your generous review, and we look forward to seeing you again.

We spent a couple of nights at this brand new (opened Jan. 2011) B&B. The Hosts could not have been more welcoming and offered a cool drink on arrival and a small parting gift. - Very nice touches.
The 3 room B&B is attached to the main house and it is purpose built. The decor is delightful and the whole area is sparkling clean. There are coffee makers, sink and a fridge in a kitchen area and a barbecue outside for guest use.
The rooms, though very comfortable, are quite small and there are no chests of drawers in which to stash your belongings. This is fine for a couple of nights but I would find it a bit frustrating for any longer than that.
As is shown on the website, the windows in 2 of the 3 rooms are not very large and I found the room to be a bit dark.
The "living room" mentioned on the website, though beautifully decorated, is really a hallway leading from the entrance to the kitchen/dining area. So, not too comfortable on a rainy day!
The B&B is situated directly by the water and the grounds are delightful. It is about 20minutes drive to Ladysmith, about 8 minutes by car to the closest restaurant and about 30minutes to the town of Cedar for a choice of more restaurants. A car is an absolute must.
All in all, a very pleasant stay .

Room Tip: 3 Rooms - 1 at back has a large, luxurious bathroom but a bit dark. The front room has best view but...

My wife and I spent two nights here and attended nearby car shows the following days in our 1963 impala. Warren and Verna were teriffic hosts. We were treated like family. Overall we had a wonderful stay with them. The nearby Crow & Gate Pub was a bonus also. We even lucked in on the perfect weather. We definately hope to stay with them again.

Verna and Warren have a beautiful, new home in an amazing location with a gorgeous beachfront, great landscaping, beautiful interior finishing - and they share it all with a smile and a delicious breakfast. This B&B is a new addition to this area and one we will return to.

Room Tip: Rose room has ocean view.
