"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%) not included on prices shown. We may require a minimum two-night stay for certain holidays and weekends.

We have stayed here two times now, and they have both been excellent. The carriage house has a great space, and a cool loft bed and Jacuzzi tub. It is very conveniently located close to the Inner Harbour, and Dan and Naoko are wonderful hosts. Wonderful breakfast - we've always had great conversation with other interesting travelers. Excellent quality for the price, I would definitely recommend it!
A cozy home-away-from home in downtown Victoria was perfect for our needs. The cottage was ideal for two people, has a gorgeous soaker tub, shower and kitchen. Groceries could be bought just a few blocks away. We walked to all of the major sites as well as along the ocean front in James Bay. Our hosts were welcoming, warm and helpful. Highly recomended!
We really enjoyed our stay. The carriage house was cozy, and three adults can be accommodated very comfortably. The neighbourhood was lovely, and within easy walking distance to downtown.
Excellent. It was exactly what I was looking for. The carriage house is clean and comfortable. Had great conversations with the hosts. Be sure to pick Dan's brain about area history. He knows his stuff!
Dan and Naoko were very welcoming. The Carriage House was clean and tidy and the price was right. It is in an excellent location — we parked our vehicle and walked to the waterfront, shopping and Beacon Hill Park/beach.
We are a couple in our early 60's. We stayed at Dan and Naoko's for 2 nights in mid April. Could not possibly have had a better experience, we will try to stay there again when we visit Victoria. We were in the Carriage House. Do not be fooled by the rustic appearance of the Carriage house exterior. Inside, it was neat, clean, very well appointed, and spacious. We especially liked the huge shower and tub area. Breakfast selection was generous, nicely prepared. Dan and Naoko were most gracious hosts.
We had a great stay in the cottage. Dan & Naoko are very gracious, experienced hosts. Great location to town. The cottage was cozy and worked out really well.
