With having two busy work schedules, we made our reservation last minute and we're so thankful a room was available. We ended up leaving our home late, caught dinner around 6pm, went to Chamainus Theater for an 8pm showing and so didn't get to the B&B till close to 11pm. We were greeted with big smiles and welcomed to their beautiful home. They went the extra mile; they had flowers and a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. After an amazing sleep on an incredible bed, we were served hot coffee and seated outside to a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains where we were then served an amazing breakfast...we suggested they apply for Canada's Master Chef. We then were shown the grounds and had a lovely visit. We really wanted to stay an extra night but we needed to be home by Sunday.
If you need to relax...this is the place you need to be!!

Everything about this retreat is perfect: as you drive through beautiful southern Vancouver Island, you approach the Bed and Breakfast along a driveway bordered by a riot of colours and the most beautiful landscaping. You are then warmly greeted by Verna and Warren who will go out of their way to make your stay the best ever. From the gourmet breakfast and coffee waiting for you in the morning to the pleasant visit by the water in the gazebo with wine and beer, from the helpful directions and the extra attention, everything is taken care of. I almost cried having to leave this beautiful place. Thanks Warren and Verna................

My wife and I have stayed in many B&B's in different locations in the world, this one rates among the highest for us. From the immaculate landscaped grounds surrounding a beautiful home, to the breathtaking view of Elliot bay from the breakfast nook and patio, for us it could not get much better than that for our vacation get away.
Our Magnolia room was lovely, and we enjoyed being in it very much, and the home itself is incredible. From Brazilian cherry hardwood floors to the beautiful cove moldings throughout , it was really a pleasure to stay in it.
Warren & Verna were the perfect hosts, from the scrumptious breakfasts every day, to the invaluable help with the local sight seeing, and friendly conversation, they made our stay very memorable .

We stopped off here for one night on our way round from Ucluelet to Port Renfrew but in retrospect wished we'd stayed longer!

We arrived after a long drive and were greeted by our hosts offering wine and beer (what more could you ask for after a long drive!) and then sat and relaxed with them on the back patio in the sunshine overlooking a little secluded bay, watching hummingbirds, sea otters and seals!

The hosts were attentive but not overly so, and got a good mix of being welcoming but not overbearing. We were more than happy to sit and have a chat but know that if we hadn't been they would have left us alone.

The rooms were clean and beautifully presented, breakfast was delicious and overall the B&B lived up to all expectations! Would certainly recommend

Would highly recommend this to anyone! Even a family could stay here with the 3 seperate self contained rooms.
The property is very well landscaped and as we sat on the ocean front sipping champagne that we brought, hummingbirds flew around sipping the nector of the many flowers and 4 bald eagles flew in front of us scooping fish out of the sea.
We lucked out with perfect weather and have decided to make this an annual tradition!

It was so nice meeting you and getting to know you both - very kind, considerate and friendly people. We greatly enjoyed your company. We are happy that not only the weather cooperated, but the bald eagles and the humming birds put out such great performances for you!
We look forward to seeing you on an annual basis, if not more frequently!
