We stayed 4 nights at Arbutus Hill, and our group of 5 had all 3 rooms. Jos and Donna are amazing hostesses and prepared a delicious breakfast each morning. The setting couldn't be more perfect. We spent a lot of time enjoying the birds and other wildlife. We highly recommend this spot to anyone and hope to return in the...

We stayed with Jos and Donna for 4 nights at the start of our third trip to BC and we wish we'd found them before now. They have a lovely home in a very quiet neighbourhood amongst woodland (which includes arbutus trees) on top of a hill- the name says it all. Their home was lovely, their food even better...

If you think you are on the wrong way - you are on the right way. Very charming place with brilliant hosts! Perfect breakfast, fantastic scenery, nice rooms and big bathroom. Perfect located for day trips around Victoria. - a real B&B jewel.

We planned a stay of three nights in the Victoria area but didn't want to stay in a standard "cookie cutter" hotel. We found this wonderful bed & breakfast and couldn't have been more pleased. It is close to everything but feels like it is off in the woods. The food was excellent and the hosts were so helpful. It...

A lovely B&B run by very hospitable hosts. The home is immaculate and a pleasure to stay in. Waking up to the songbirds was a joy. The breakfast was excellent and our dietary needs fully accommodated. The previous reviewers have painted a very accurate description of this B&B.

This lovely B&B is nestled in a lush forest area along with other homes. Surrounded by gorgeous trees with beautiful potted plants on the deck. Our room, as well as the entire home was very clean, modern and spaceous. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful. We spent a lot of time chatting with them. They had to prepare a...

It was difficult for us to find it, because we did not have a printed street map of the area, the Garmin 42 we bought in the USA does not support Canada maps, and our iPhone Waze guided us to a wrong street. Once we arrived there, we enjoyed it very much. The house is in a remote street, located...

We stayed for three nights and found this B&B well situated for visits to the Butchart gardens, Victoria and other parts of Saanich. We were able to use the owner's living space and deck. They were very friendly and helpful, for example providing us with a list of restaurants. The breakfasts were ample, tasty and varied. The rooms were good...

We stayed five nights in July 2013. What a hidden treasure this place is. Great location, only five minutes drive from the city but feels like you are miles away in the quiet countryside. A beautiful house and private yard, you can relax on the deck and watch the hummingbirds. Hosts are terrific, great cooks as well. Grab this place...
