Absolutely Lovely B&B
We had never stayed at a B&B before. This first experience was fantastic. The location of the house is in a quiet, leafy area yet still close to restaurants at Oak Bay, & not far from the city. The accommodation itself was a feast for the eyes-ornamental, clean, but still comfortable, & the garden is a delight. There was a fire place in the room, & a mural painted on the walls and ceiling with an Italian vibe. Our hosts, Alex and Diana, were just lovely people. They left us to our own devices, but the breakfasts they presented us with were outstanding! Four courses to start the day, different everyday too, & they will cater to dietary needs if you communicate the information beforehand. Definitely no need for lunch which was fine by us! There was no tv in the room, though there is one in the lounge area. We were far too tired to be concerned with tv. If you want a really nice experience with fantastic breakfasts this is the place to stay while in Victoria. We were so pleased we chose this venue, & could only highly recommend it.

Amazing! They usually serve breakfast at 8:30 and due to our work schedule we couldn't attend at that time. The Innkeepers made us a special 8am breakfast! So considerate and helpful!

The Villa is a real gem. Hosts Diana and Alex made us welcome from the minute we arrived and provided a first class service. The four course breakfast were a real treat. Our weekend will be remembered for a long time to come, we will be sure to return.

Great area, beautiful house and yard. There was a lot of wildlife, including an owl that stayed for the whole day.

Nice and quiet location with a great garden. No air conditioning so with the windows open we heard early construction noise.

Beautiful bed and breakfast, very romantic.
The staff was very friendly and helpful with great recommendations for restaurants and places to see in Victoria. A 4- course breakfast was served each morning, and my husband was served delicious gluten-free options as well. Our room was gorgeous. We would definitely go again.
