I live 24 km away from Wit's End Retreat but after working from home and socially isolating for the past year, I needed a solo retreat. Wit's End was perfect for it. I spent time reading, journaling, soaking in the clawfoot bathtub, and sitting in front of the gas fireplace. I walked to the My Chosen Cafe one day for lunch and enjoyed the artistic fence on the way. After lunch, I went behind the cafe and petted their goats. The breakfasts are delicious and the hosts are warm and welcoming. Such a great stay and hope to return with my wife in the near future!

Thank you so much for your review. In these uncertain times, it is refreshing to still have people local or otherwise come and stay with us. Unfortunately you did not get to play with the Goldens this time, too wet. Please come again and bring your wife so that you both enjoy our B and B and Metchosin. See you again, Heather and Sandy

We booked three nights and were blessed to find such a beautiful garden, rural location and incredible hosts. The spacious suite with modern amenities (including heated bathroom floor) was so comfortable with many windows overlooking the lovely garden and woods. It was such a pleasure drifting off to sleep to the melody of geese and owls , waking to gourmet breakfasts and having interesting and humourous chats with Heather and Sandy. Three playful golden retrievers to enjoy,. A short walk to the beach and a wooded trail to waterfalls and otter inhabited lagoon. The location, accommodation and relaxing hospitality were far beyond our expectations and superior to any other B&B we have visited.

To say the least we had many, many good chats. One of us had many questions. We do know who that was right Rob. It was great meeting the two of you. I am really glad you liked our B and B and Metchosin. We are lucky we have a wonderful community. You are not that far Victoria so you can wander down and enjoy lunch or dinner. I have to say that your pictures you took Sherri were beyond great. Thank you so much. Hope to see you both back here one day. Stay safe. Cheers, Heather

I cannot say enough about Heather and Sandy and the hospitality they show to me each time I book in for a relaxing rest in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. I return each year and I look forward to pulling up on the driveway knowing what's in store for my stay! The property is amazing and these two are so welcoming. The room itself is GORGEOUS and serene, peaceful and quiet. Sandy and Heather pay attention to detail and know how to pamper their guests! Their beautiful 3 golden retrievers are joyful to be around and the breakfasts...... INCREDIBLE. Thank you both so much for opening up this little piece of heaven to me!

We recently returned for our 2nd stay at this bit of paradise. The retreat is surrounded by a beautiful secluded garden that is there for you to enjoy, sit in, walk through or play with the dogs. Water features add to the ambiance as you make your way to a private suite. Breakfasts are gourmet and served in your suite. Heather and Sandy are certainly the ultimate hosts..kind, helpful and fun to talk with. It would be difficult to find a more renewing place.

Thanks for your lovely review. I hope everything works out for you and that you let us know how the operation went. The dogs miss you throwing the ball. Sammy really never gets tired chasing it. Hopefully if you return Frankie might be a better girl. She is still learning the words off and no. We are sure glad you enjoyed the Metchosin Benny. I do love taking care of the property with all it’s beauty. Hope to see you again one day. Remember what Dr. Bonnie saids, be safe, be calm and be kind. Best regards, Heather and Sandy

Loved our stay!!! Both Sandy and Heather were amazing hosts and took the time to make sure our stay was fantastic! It's truly a beautiful oasis tucked away from the hustle and bustle of every day life! Stroll the garden property or head down to the Witty's Beach, which is just across from their place! Loved every minute and wish we had booked longer!

It is great when some of our locals see what we have to offer. Sandy and I are very proud with what we have accomplished here. We love our guests to relax and enjoy the grounds. We love it when our guests enjoy the Goldens though they are sometimes a pain, ha, ha to me. They do love to perform for others. Please come and see us again. Cheers, Heather and Sandy
