We recently completed a very quick trip to Vancouver Island which was a mistake but choosing to stay for 2 nights at Eles Escape B&B definitely was not. Barb was extremely helpful in providing suggestions and directions. She was most welcoming, provided so many little extras and the breakfasts were AWESOME! Definitely would be back for a much longer stay....

After a frustrating day of airline problems, my husband and I arrived at Ele's Escape B & B by the Sea. We were feeling frazzled but Barbara made us feel at home immediately by offering us delicious snacks and a drink. Our tensions melted away as we continued to be wowed by this amazing host. Everything was excellent. The room,...

Stayed with Barb & Jack for 3 days. Barb's breakfasts are out of this world and the presentation was superb. Very comfortable house and lovely decor. Barb was also very informative for ideas of activities and very personable. I wouldn't hesitate on deciding where to stay if in the area again. Ele is a beautiful friendly dog and only wish...

My experience at this B&B far exceeded expectations! Not only was I able to get in in fairly short notice, but Barbara was pleasant right from the first email correspondence. Everything from the welcome email, directions, the suite, the adorable house, and most especially the generous hospitality to myself and my two Beagles, was absolutely superb. The breakfasts were amazing!...

An absolutely wonderfully charming experience for our first time at a B&B. Our hosts, Barb & Jack were welcoming and had many interesting stories to share. The accommodations were very clean, beautifully decorated, and the food was delicious; Barb is an artiste! Situated very close to the ocean, we enjoyed several lovely walks even in the cool October mornings. Right...

What a lovely place, go there you won't be disappointed, everything is top, location, accommodation, food and above all Barbara and her husband are very nice hosts. We also loved their beautiful dog. Our only regret was to have booked only one night, we would have really enjoyed staying longer.

We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming and enjoyable experience with Barb and Jack. The quality and variety of food was outstanding. Barb is very warm and open, and we had great conversations. The room was very comfortable and the place was lovely, inside and outside, with many seating areas. Great location!

Barb’s breakfasts are amazing, both the chocolate crepes and the quiche. Her and Jack are superb hosts; great conversations and good laughs. Barb and Jack know the area well and have great suggestions. The house is wonderfully inviting, with such great books, it’s hard to leave, but then, the location is excellent! The beach is just down the street. Sea...
