Our home is truly a great place to relax, enjoy a hammock, hot tub on your private deck accessable from your private room entrance.

About Char Roth

Bob and I have been married for forty years, have three beautiful daughters, three handsome son-in-laws, five perfect grandbabies and our special golden doodle, Bella. We are fitness nuts, love to golf (but don't seem to get time) and love to entertain. Over the years we have made several friends thru the Rotary exchange program and enjoy their frequent visits back to Canada and our trips overseas to see them.

Why Char Roth chose Malahat

Employment opportunities brought us to Vancouver Island from Prince George BC. We bought this piece of property three years after moving to the Island. We wanted to get out of the busyness of the city. When we purchased this home, it needed a lot of work. We did it! We love it! We know you will love it as well!

What makes this house unique

More than anything, we enjoy sharing our view. It is hard to take your eyes off of the amazing sights of all the activity going on around us. Boating and fishing below, planes coming and going from the Victoria airport off in the distance, watching the cruise ships, BC ferries and the wildlife. Many of our guests decide to just stay put here and enjoy the majestic experience.

WOW!!! A MUST STAY!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading this, and trying to decide where to stay while you are on Vancouver Island, you would be crazy not to stay here. There really is no view like it and that is only one part of the stay. The bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was awesome (love the instant hot water and pressure), the amenities were perfect and we never needed something we didn't have. Everything has been thought through, down to the little details like "hot tub" shoes to wear down to the hot tub steps out your door. We came for a long overdue vacation and left feeling like we had no worry in the world. This is a place that will make you smile and relax, feeling like the world is far away, yet it is still 5 mins to shopping and stores.

Char, Bob and Bella, thank you so much for sharing your place with us! We enjoyed hanging out over wine and watching the view! Your recommendations on restaurants and things to see was spot on! Gilly and Snowy had a blast and we all can't wait to come back again soon!

The property was just what was advertised.. a beautiful view overlooking the ocean !

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were the most generous and caring people.. making sure every little detail was taken care of! They even had us in for Xmas dinner which was such so much fun ! Getting to know Char and Bob and Bella was fantastic and hearing their stories was even better.. truly got to know each other!

We came as renters to a B and B and came away with new friends!

It was a most relaxing and serene setting with views you can only imagine. It was very private but you could get to Victoria or Up island so easily which was wonderful as we could go in any direction and get there quickly!

We will definetley go back to stay and would highly recommend to anyone wishing for a beautiful setting and the most hospitable hosts.

Thx again Char and Bob... you made this Christmas truly a special one! Hugs!

Breathtaking view... amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

That was one of rare journeys when I didn’t want to come back.. I wish we could extend our trip even for couple of days longer. The location is spectacular, breathtaking view, almost unreal. Char and Bob were wonderful hosts. We had everything we need and even more. An accommodation was great, warm, pleasant, everything in working order, easy and quick access to nearby trails, local restaurants, Victoria is about 30-40 min away, depending on traffic; ferry is also close by.

We used a hot tub, sat next to the fire pit watching the flame dancing, drinking hot tea and looking at City lights on the bay...unbelievable peaceful and quiet feeling. On the way to the place we saw a huge eagle flying over the highway and also touching one of the cars; and while going to the local restaurant, saw a family of deers walking across the street, slowly and gracefully. We truly enjoyed our short weekend getaway and I was so happy we picked Malahat B&B as our accommodation provided. We are planning to be back in summer or even earlier. I recommend it 150%!

Magical place and amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful two night stay here. The place has incredible views, even on a grey day! Everything was very nice quality and the kitchenette well-stocked. Suite was spotless, bed was so comfortable, and bathroom very well done on the side of luxury. The icing on the cake was the hot tub overlooking the mountains and ocean! Provided breakfast was delightful with the array of meat, eggs, cheese, fruits and yogurt. We especially enjoyed the homemade breads.

Hosts were easy to communicate with, and very accommodating with our requests and check out time. Really takes care of every detail and does a great job to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. Char was there to greet us upon check in and was nice and friendly. We had left some items behind and was super helpful to ship them back fast! It's very much appreciated.

Such a lovely little getaway spot. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

Car: necessary

If you are arriving via the Schwartz Bay Ferry, consider taking the Brentwood Bay Ferry over to Mill bay. It is a beautiful ride and very affordable but keep in mind that they only take cash.
