A 4 minute walk down the block will bring you to Fleming Beach and Macaulay Point, where you can watch, or take part in rock-climbing, kayaking, sports fishing, or just sitting and contemplating the marvellous view of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic Mountains of Washington State. A little further west, you'll find Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt, Canada's 2nd largest naval base...where you can take part in free summer tours, or, enjoy the Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum, also in the HMCS Naden grounds.

Most guests choose a Canadian breakfast, featuring fresh baked breads, homemade jams and preserves, and fresh fruit, which is served on fine china. The coffee and teas are excellent. Give us notice, and we can prepare a Japanese breakfast, of which rice and miso soup are the base and which is served with traditional green tea.
With two dining rooms and a living room, 2 sundecks, gardens, and a hot tub under the stars on the patio, there's plenty of space for guests. A fridge and microwave is available for guest use, and the proper pot of tea offered at check-in time has won the hearts of many a weary traveler to B.C.
Guests are welcome to enjoy use of two dining rooms, and living room. The living room has cable tv, and a dvd player for your enjoyment, though we notice that most guests find so much to see and do in Victoria that the TV is rarely on. Off the main dining room is a porch, where one can enjoy the Magnolia and Camellia in bloom in March, and off the sundeck in the back area of the house, you'll enjoy views of the koi pond and waterfall. Walk on down with a book, and relax beside the swirling fish. Nearby is the hot tub too! The patio has a table and chairs, for those wanting a summer breakfast outdoors.
In the front yard there is a roundabout driveway, and lots of free parking. The bus stop to town is directly in front of the house, with buses travelling to town every 30 minutes, and only taking 12 minutes to get there!
For those travelling here by bicycle, be assured that there is lots of room for safe bicycle storage and your gear in the garage. There is a guest refrigerator and microwave set up in one of the dining rooms, with a coffee and tea station. If you're travelling with your laptop, our wireless router means that you'll have free and easy access to the internet.
Regular items, such as plush towels, hair dryers, robes, slippers, clock radios, ipod docks, books, magazines, board games and cards, await you. Your hosts have a soft spot for seniors, and will do our best if a situation warrants assistance. We're sorry that at this time, we are not set up sufficiently with handicap accessibility amenities.
Rooms feature posturepedic mattresses, CD player/alarm clock, rich duvets (hypo-allergenic feather or polyester) plush towels and robes, hair dryers and slippers. Lounge in the living room, enjoying cable TV and the DVD player there, or meet other guests from around the world.
