We stayed at Beachside Garden this spring and were very happy all around. The place is fully wheelchair accessible (not always easy to find), the location is beautiful (right on the water looking back at Ladysmith) and the hosts are very friendly.

Great spot if you want to watch the birds, explore the beach or just relax with a book.

Room Tip: One of the rooms was built to be fully accessible.

When we planned our B&B, we paid particular attention and built to enhance accessibility for people with mobility issues. We are so glad that this feature has served you well; and that you were very happy with your stay with us. We enjoyed your company.

Great stop for a night or two as you travel around Vancouver Island. We wanted to stay here to visit the nearby Crow & Gate Pub (English-style country pub), and while that was great, we also had a fun time relaxing with the hosts at the B&B as well. Would definitely visit again.

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 .
