Thank- you for sharing your wonderful property. The Cove was like a pond so calm with birds and ducks all around.

My best friend and I took a weekend and stayed in the Arbutus cottage at the Arbutus Cove Guesthouse. Kathy was very friendly and welcoming but we really appreciated that once we checked in, we really didn't see anyone for the rest of our stay and were left to our own devices. The cottage is so wonderful! Super clean, comfy,...

We have stayed at this guest house on a couple of different occasions! The property is absolutely stunning and we have the best sleep ever in the cozy beds. It is such a treat to be able to step off the 5 acres of private waterfront onto the Galloping Goose walking/biking trail. The private rental cottages look incredible as well.

After a long day of riding - from the Schwartz Bay ferry, this place was a welcome beauty. From the warm welcome from our host and two friendly dogs to the beautiful view and clean EVERYTHING - we loved our stay. The breakfast was fun and yummy. We rode to the Stickleback Restaurant for supper and that was spot on...

We cycled Victoria to the Potholes and Leechtown and back to Arbutus Cove (80 km.)for the evening. What a treat to soak in the tub, drink wine and look over the cove at sunset. Our Room#3 was perfect and had one of the comfiest beds we could ask for. We enjoyed our hosts as well as other cyclists.We highly recommend...

We had a wonderful weekend here and were very impressed. The cottage we stayed in was absolutely beautiful, with everything we could possibly need. The bed was beyond comfortable. It was very private. The view was fantastic. I can't think of one negative thing to say. Excellent value for the money, imho. Thank you! We will absolutely return.

We stayed in the Arbutus cottage with our own private deck and hottub. The cottage was lovely, large living room and bedroom with a nicely set up kitchen that allowed us to have breakfast and lunch at the cottage. We didn't plan for cooking dinner but easily could have. We were able to access their dock and paddled our sea...
