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.

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!

Amazing View, Property and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this stay was top notch and we got the luxury of beatutiful weather to top it off. There is so many thoughtful things that were provided, including a variety of food, more amenities than you would be used to, wonderful areas to relax in a few different settings. This was the most relaxing getaway I've ever had. Thank you for everything and we will be back.

Amazing Property with Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary and were blown away with how amazing this place is. The views are stunning and the pictures don't do it justice (no picture probably can). It's a full 180 degree view for miles, on a clear day you can even see the high rises of downtown Vancouver in the distance. The patio and hot tub area is amazing, you get the entire view from inside hot tub, you even get a view from in bed! The amenities were great they have almost everything you could need and they provide a ton of food for you to make your own breakfasts (meat, eggs, cheeses, homemade bread, preserves, crackers, tons of fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee & tea, soda and more). We had a great time and will definitely be back again.

Truly magical! A view like no other!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and it was even more beautiful than the pictures show. The view is just perfection! Char is such a wonderful hostess and she was so respectful of our privacy, we hardly knew she was there. Great communication via text. Their dog, Bella, was a delightful surprise the first morning as she was at our sliding glass door, waiting patiently to greet us. She visited a bit, then returned to the main house, but she came each morning for more love! The location is ideal, as it is not far from any of the usual attractions on the island. The hot tub was just amazing; sitting out there at night, staring up at the stars, made for memories we will always remember. Char & Bob have obviously given a lot of thought & attention to ways to make their guests feel at home and welcome ~ from the bath robes, extra large towels and several pairs of Crocs to choose from for the walk down to the hot tub, to homemade bread and preserves, to a variety of dishes for every dining/drinking need. Honestly, though, even if all these extra touches weren't there, it would still be our first choice to stay while on Vancouver Island because of that breathtaking view!

Amazing. Stay here! Look no further!

  • 5 of 5

The view is just incredible, pictures don’t do it justice. Char has thought of everything from an assortment of beverages, fruit, fresh baked bread to a heated seating area and fire pit. We truly felt at home here in this beautiful oasis that they are so generous to offer up. The hot tub was wonderful for a morning coffee, late night star gazing or to simply take in the gorgeous scenery. If you are feeling overwhelmed with searching for a perfect get away, your search has come to an end. Just do it. Book it. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing property - fabulous hosts

  • 5 of 5

Best set up Bed and Breakfast. Every attention to detail that is needed for a

Relaxing getaway. Perfect combination of privacy and attentiveness.

We absolutely loved it - weather not so cooperative but we were warm and cozy. Our dog Jasper loved it too - made himself right at home by eating Bella’s food the first night.

Hot tub was lovely and view was ever changing but beautiful.

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.
