"The Carriage House Cottage," is a separate structure originally built to house horse drawn vehicles. It has been tastefully renovated in a style reflecting its former use and features a large tiled bath with multiple shower heads, jacuzzi tub, kitchenette, microwave, flat screen TV/DVD, etc. It has a beautiful queen-size Murphy Bed bed on the main floor which conveniently folds into the wall for more daytime space. Another queen-size bed is in a large sleeping loft reached by a captain's ladder. A couch on the main floor converts to a comfortable single bed ( Please note: this cozy layout does not provide complete privacy among your entourage the way separate rooms would do. If your group requires that you are better off to rent our two rooms in the main house ).
A delicious breakfast is served in the dining room of The Carriage House B&B between 7:30 and 9:00 a.m. You may have eggs, French toast (pain doré), or cereal (hot or cold). All are served with a fresh fruit cup, whole grain toast, and beverage (tea, coffee, milk, juice). Special dietary requirements can usually be accommodated (please let us know in advance).
PLEASE NOTE: Canada Goods & Services tax (5%) is included on prices shown. We may require a minimum two-night stay for certain holidays and weekends.

We had great time at the Carriage House cottage. The loft bed was wonderful and the place was very clean. We didn't meet Dan (he was away) but Naoko made us a nice breakfast the next morning. A really nice place to stay!
Naoko and Dan Pedrik were great hosts. The BB was great. We stayed in a cottage in the back and it was perfect. Great loft for the kids and a wonderful jacuzzi style bath tub. Very good breakfasts. Dan and Naoko made us feel welcome and provided us with lots of information about Victoria. I absolutely recommend this BB to anyone who is going to Victoria. Naoko speaks English and Japanese fluently so a great place for anyone coming from Japan. A wonderful place to stay.
Our hosts were so kind and hospitable. Breakfast was wonderful. Great location. Clean and comfy place.
Great location - walking distance from the bus terminal, the conference centre, park, etc... I was only there one short night, but the cottage was comfortable and fun - I stayed in the loft bed. Hosts Dan and Naoko are both warm and friendly and nicely accommodated my early morning departure.
Lovely little carriage house. Clean with a great bathroom setup. The location is incredible, no more than 2 minutes walk from the center of the harbor. The hosts made us feel very at home, cooked a lovely meal, and helped us set up our tours. Great place, highly recommended.
The hosts were gracious, friendly and understanding. The room (single large room with murphy bed, small bed/sit and bed in a loft) was clean, accommodating and worked really well. Close to Victoria downtown, but quiet. Start to finish a great stay!
Was warmly greeted by Dan in the yard, as he was doing some yard maintenance. He showed me to the cottage. It was exactly as describled, small cottage, located in the backyard. It was extremely clean and well organized. Both Dan and Naoka are very warm and friendly. The breakfasts were wonderful, and they were gracious enough to keep me company on the morning when there were no other guests at the B&B. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and the hosts were very considerate and accomodating.
