I was in the area for a workshop and this property was such a dream at the end of the day. Highest quality linens, gorgeous views, fully stocked kitchen along with quiet made my ten day stay easy and enjoyable.



The hosts, Jacqui and Ollie left no detail unaccounted for. I was warmly greeted and provided every amenity I desired. the WiFi worked perfectly, good grocery stores in the area, along with beautiful furnishings. I highly recommend this property to singles or couples.

The absolute beauty and uniqueness of the valley allows us to live in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by farms producing fresh local produce where the honor system is still often used.We are in the perfect location; with easy access to Victoria the capital city of British Columbia, a short 15 to 20 minute drive. Or if we wish to explore this magnificent Island the Pacific Marine Circle Route is the perfect one-day drive. Including visiting West Coast beaches and parks, world famous ancient forests and mammoth trees… with interesting and quaint places to see along the way such as “Point No Point” for tea with a stunning view, French Beach, China Beach, Port Renfrew and the fascinating Botanical Gardens the trailhead of Pacific Rim Park, Cowichan Lake , the list is immense.

After a day of sight seeing and discovering new places to return to the peace, beauty and tranquility of Heathwood is a treasure we never take for granted.

Victoria and the South Island region is home to many exceptionally talented chefs who turn local products into memorable dining experiences. Taste the amazing foods from the region, fresh produce, Pacific seafood, fine wines and ales at the restaurants in the area or bring the delights you find home to enjoy in your “home away from home” – Heathwood.

GARDEN OF EDEN

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this tranquil little haven for five days. Would that we could have stayed 5 more! The property is so beautiful and peaceful that you don't want to leave. The cottage has all that you will need for a comfortable stay. Our charming hosts even left us some local organic eggs and bread in the fridge in case we arrived starving. Though you are close to everything, you feel like you are away from it all. Very nearby are farms and wineries - in the quaint town of Sidney-by-the-sea, all manner of shops, bakeries and restaurants. Don't miss the stunning Butchart Gardens a few minutes away! For the foodie, make a bee-line to the gastro-brew pub Spinnakers or the wonderful Zambri's in downtown Victoria. All in all, one of our best trips. We look forward to visiting the lovely Heathwood cottage again sometime soon!

LOVED THE SUNRISE SUITE, AND THE HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
The Sunrise Suite is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Butchart Gardens, if you're looking for a place of serenity, comfort, and fellowship. It's close enough to some small towns to have decent dining options (5 minutes or so). Go a little farther (up to 15 minutes) and there's a very good selection. But we don't come to Heathwood to be within walking distance of fine dining. We go there because the people are fantastic, their property is almost as pretty as a piece of Butchart Gardens, and it is very peaceful.
Sunrise Suite is larger than some apartments. You approach up the lawn and to your own private door. There are two separate bedrooms and one shared bath, a small laundry (perfectly large enough for our purposes), a living room with a view of the pasture and hills, and a cozy kitchen. Everything is as clean as can be, and if you have any problem at all, Jacqui and Ollie are wonderful about taking care of things.
It is, at most, a 10 minute drive to Butchart Gardens. Less if you don't have to stop for any traffic. And traffic out there is minimal. If going to Victoria, it's very straight-forward and no more than 40 minutes at rush hour. At least, that's what we encountered. Less, more like 25-30, outside of the relatively-heavy traffic. If you're used to a larger city like Seattle, even the rush hour traffic in Victoria is very light. Sidney is a cute town and just a few minutes north. Really, Sunrise Suite is very centrally located if you're exploring the Saanich Peninsula.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here with our next visit.

LARGE, BEAUTIFUL, QUIET SUITE.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the Sunrise Suite at Heathwood for the weekend of our wedding, Oct 4-7, 2013. The suite is quite large, so it worked well to for my bridesmaids and I to get ready for the wedding, which included hair and makeup for 6 people. The property is so beautiful so we were able to take some wonderful photos of our dresses etc with the scenery. We also did a reveal photo shoot where my husband and I saw each other for the first time and the property offered a lovely backdrop. Jacqui and Ollie were extremely accommodating and very helpful for us. The suite is beautiful and the bedroom is very spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. We would definitely recommend this suite for anyone as it can be very functional for a quiet weekend away or used in a similar way as we did.

Owner's Response: Dear Chellan,
Thank you for taking the time to write this very complimentary review,
especially as we know you have just returned from your Honeymoon.
Ollie and I are very grateful that the Sunrise Suite was all you wished it to be, and that the grounds of Heathwood helped to make your very special day a success.
The weather was wonderful, and although it was a fall day in October
you had a lovely warm and sunny day for your many photographs .
Ollie joins me in wishing you both a very happy, fun filled future together.
Very Best Wishes to both of you,
Jacqui & Ollie

This is the ideal place to spend a relaxing holiday.The property is immaculate and the accommodation is set up very well for cooking. The location is convenient to the airport and downtown Victoria. We enjoyed the peacefulness and of course the Horses and Donkeys.

SUBLIME

  • 5 of 5
Upon arriving at Heathwood our nerves relaxed and stress dissolved because the surroundings were serene and beautiful. Everything about Heathwood was top notch. The grounds were immaculately groomed and the Sunrise Suite was refreshing and tranquil. We immediately renamed the suite "the cottage" since it resembled the quaint English cottages found in England. The art, antiques, and fine linens were tasteful and inviting. We were in love and felt very much at home. The dogs we met by chance and found them to be lovable and mannerly. Our hosts, Jacqui and Ollie were so willing to accommodate us. Thanks to Heathwood our vacation was a true delight. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We highly recommend this superb place for your next visit to Canada.
