Victoria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Hosting visitors since 1992 (and on the world wide web since 1994), The Carriage House Bed & Breakfast offers cozy, affordable bed-and-breakfast accommodation in a Victorian era NON-SMOKING home located in a quiet residential neighbourhood just TWO BLOCKS from Downtown Victoria, B.C., close to museums, the Inner Harbour, and the British Columbia Parliament Buildings; one block to beautiful Beacon Hill Park, three blocks to the Victoria Conference Centre; wireless internet, free on-site parking. So close, you do not need a car!
'The Carriage House Cottage,' a separate structure providing complete privacy, was 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, jetted tub, kitchenette, microwave, Flatscreen 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. It's simply the sweetest, dis-creetest little suite you'll ever see, and only five minutes walk from downtown. Includes patio, BBQ, free wi-fi, and parking.
Option: For our bed-and-breakfast guests 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 if you want this breakfast option; not always available in off-season).

Naoko (born and raised in Kyoto, Japan,) and Dan (an Appalachian hillbilly) are a happily married couple (15 years), delighted to live by the sea on magical Vancouver Island. Operating The Carriage House Bed & Breakfast since 1992 we are proud to have many repeat customers.
Aside from attending Victoria's myriad cultural venues and happenings we enjoy travelling, music, gastronomy (at home and out), horseback riding, ice skating, and swimming.
We invite you to come and share our beautiful island city with us!
