This suite has all the basics, except for a sofa bed. I had wrongly assumed there would be one. Host John quickly came to our aid with an extra mattress and bedding. He also realized we had no breakfast items, and brought us some coffee and muffins! The location is marvellous, in the country yet close to much that matters....

Management response:

Hello Dirk, thanks for the kind words , I'm glad you and Paul had a pleasant stay with us. all the best, John

What a great find. This little place is located in beautiful surroundings. Though it is off the beaten path, it is extremely close to everything. It was only about a 10 minute or less drive to Butchart Gardens (a must see....should be one of the wonders of the world). The owner, John, was nearby and available for all of our...

A great pleasure meeting you both , we hope to see you again in the future !

Holly Farm is in an acreage-type area about 20 minutes north of downtown Victoria on the Saanich Peninsula. The farm was located close to Butchart Gardens and many parks where we were able to go for short walks. There was a very good grocery store and cafe within 3 minutes driving distance from Holly Farm. Brentwood Bay is only 10...

About the neighbourhood
We live in rural Saanich, 20 minutes from downtown Victoria. If coming from the BC Ferries, or Anacortes Ferry or the Victoria Airport we are halfway to Victoria. We are surrounded by forests and farms. In Saanich West and Central Saanich there are beautiful 'rain-forest' hiking trails that follow the lakes, and up small mountains, and down to the ocean. There are hiking trails suited for all fitness levels. The ocean can be reached on both sides of the Saanich Peninsula. On one side there are many small bays and inlets separating Vancouver Island from the mainland; and the ocean on the other side of the peninsula is the 'Salish Sea'...that leads to the Pacific ocean. Nearby is Island View Beach a beautiful spot for beachcombers to walk and picnic. Kayak rentals are avail... more
