"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).

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 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.
This B&B is very good value for money. We stayed in the cottage which sleeps 5. It would be suitable for a family or 2 couples as there isn't much privacy. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage clean. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Dan and Nako were excellent hosts. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Dan and Naoko were both so kind and pleasant to deal with. The morning breakfast was amazing and they will customize to your liking. we stayed in the cottage house and it was so cozy and clean. Very nice location as it was only a few blocks away from downtown Victoria. Would definitely stay here again if I were to go back to Victoria.
Dan and Naoko's bed and breakfast is a wonderful place to stay. They are both very warm and inviting and made us feel comfortable right away. Their place is clean and well kept, and is only a few blocks from the parliament buildings, so very ideal. Also, the French toast they made was delicious. Thank you, Dan and Naoko, for a wonderful stay!
My girlfriend and I had a short stay here, but we had a great time. The Cottage was very cozy and Dan and Naoko were wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay here again.
