My husband and I fell in love with this property in 2009. We were very drawn to it's beauty and peace. Over the past 2 years we have worked on our home and the cottage making many improvements.
Privacy, and only 20 minutes to downtown Victoria.
We enjoyed our stay at Woodruff Cottage immensely! The grounds were absolutely beautiful. The cottage was very well equipped. We had everything we needed and more.
Our hosts Deb and Dave made us feel most welcome!
I stayed at Woodruff Cottage for 4 nights with my wife while competing in the annual Xterra Victoria Triathlon. Value for money this is one of the best accommodations I have ever stayed in. The beds were extremely comfortable, the cottage was unique and felt like a home rather than just some where to sleep for a few nights. Deborah and Dave were amazing hosts, we even arrived 6 hours later than expected in the middle of the night and Dave stayed up to guide us in and make sure we were set-up in the cottage.
I plan on being back to Woodruff cottage the next time we are in the area, you would be hard pressed to find better accommodations anywhere near here. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing/peaceful setting and owners who maintain their property.
I apologize to Deborah and Dave for this long delay in writing my tribute to their lovely cottage. Everything was modern, spotless, and yet very homey. The bed was so comfortable, and I think that is the most important amenity for a weary traveler. The property is idyllic, and Deborah's gardens were lush. We felt very welcome, and the separation between the cottage and their residence was just enough for maximal privacy. When the washing machine broke, Deborah offered her own machine for us to use. She is also an expert on the area, and we gained valuable insight about our first trip to Victoria. I enjoyed every moment of our stay, and we will definitely rent again on any return visit!
Woodruff Cottage is a wonderful getaway. Centrally located, close to Victoria & Butchart Gardens. The pictures of the garden is what attracted us to this place and it truly delivered. Beautiful landscaping to go with the comfortable and cozy cottage. Enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the pond. Deborah & Dave are wonderful hosts... available yet respectful of your privacy. We will definitely be back to further explore Vancouver island!
This is an adorable little cottage. It is very cozy with a wood stove inside. The grounds around the cottage are so relaxing and private. The owners do live on the same property but you still feel like you have your own private space. The owners are beautiful people and even brought us Thanksgiving dinner while we were there!
We would stay here again if we were in Victoria. The were only a few minor things that may impact your stay here. First, cell phone reception is poor and there is no landline in the cottage. However, the owners will allow you to use their landline if needed. There is also no television in the cottage. This can make for a very relaxing, "get away from it all" stay. We didn't mind not having a television. There is internet available however. It depends on what you are looking for.
Overall, this is a great little cottage and we highly recommend this place while visiting Victoria!
This is a very beautiful little cottage. The owners are very kind and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. We like to have a home base and do day trips from that. This was a perfect location for that; Sidney and Victoria are very close. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
Rural setting with markets ,wineries,picturesque scenery,many outdoor activities. Close to town yet in the country!
