Beautiful, relaxing Garden Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the home away from home in Colwood. We loved the beautiful garden! The set-up was ideal for us meeting our friends - we could make our own breakfast in the really well equipped kitchen (we had brought our own knives, but never needed to use them!) and even cooked a few evenings. But there were enough really wonderful restaurants in Victoria and the area around Colwood that we just wanted to try them all out. We slept like babies and the fresh air coming from the nearby coast was just marvelous! Thank you so much for the great stay - we hope to come again!

Enjoyed our stay at Foxgloveden

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. Loved the gardens and the quiet after being with grandchildren all day. Not far from stores. Lots of beautiful hiking trails. Nice and clean. Would definitely come back for another stay. Beds were so comfy.

A Very Comfortable, Restful Place To Which We Would Gladly Return

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Foxgloveden for the month of January as part of our investigation of places to buy a home on Vancouver Island. The suite itself is neat and clean, and very comfortable. It has all of the amenities that we needed to be self-sufficient during the month.The hosts, Leanne and Bruce, were very accommodating and helpful as well as knowledgeable about shopping, sightseeing, and the numerous places to walk in the area. Even in January there were a few flowers coming into bloom in the garden and it must be lovely during the spring and summer months. There were several species birds entertaining us daily at the bird feeder in the garden in front of our suite. If shopping is your thing there are several plazas within easy driving distance as is downtown Victoria. The Strait of Juan de Fuca is a good walk (or a short drive away). In short, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and left this lovely rental reluctantly for our next adventure.

Great locatıon, very clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a couple of nights and loved it. The house is in a beautiful location right next to the gorge and very close to downtown Victoria. It is very well kept and clean. It was much better than I would have hoped for.

Beautiful Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This suite is a beautiful and well equipped space to stay. It was very clean and the grounds were gorgeous. Our kids loved spending time in the garden, it was nice that the yard is fully fenced so we could let them play. We also loved the beds, after travelling for a few stays non-stop, it was so nice to sleep in such wonderful beds!

We stayed at Foxgloveden for 8 nights in late January- early February. The suite and grounds are beautiful. Living room is bright and quite comfortable; the beds are exceptionally good, the best I've experienced in a rental suite. Leanne was very accommodating and helpful with information about local places to walk, see birds, shop for groceries etc. Having two bedrooms, a complete kitchen, and gas fireplace as a bonus made our stay very enjoyable. Thank you, Leanne!
