Best Cottage ever

  • 5 of 5

I have already submitted one review but got the dates wrong hopefully they will print this one. Our stay at the Country Cottage was one of excellence. We couldn't have asked for a better place or location for our time in Victoria. We were there two weeks and enjoyed every day and truly our hosts went beyond hospitable expectations.

The grounds were exceptional and lots of birds to watch which we really enjoyed since we are birders and main reason for our trip. We would recommend this cottage to our friends and family it's a great stay and would certainly stay there again in a heartbeat.

Terrific Cottage Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for two weeks and was by far the best accommodations we have encountered . We couldn't ask for better hosts they went beyond making our stay relaxing and enjoyable . The grounds and the cottage were wonderful, beautiful scenery all around. We especially enjoyed all the birds that we saw as we relaxed on the cottage deck. Very well located not far from anything and a lovely cafe at the end of the street.We would defiantly come back for another stay it was like staying at a retreat just lovely and would certainly recommend this place to all our friends and relatives .

Very much exceeds expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned VRBO renters and we found this cottage goes way beyond providing a comfortable, clean, cozy and very well appointed accommodation (they even provided bath robes). It is quite magical, in that the grounds are incredibly beautiful, meditative and restoring. It is incredibly well located as it is close to all the attractions & amenities that the Victoria area has to offer, while at the same time feeling sheltered and retreat like. I would highly recommend this property & we will definitely stay here again if needing a place in the area. The owners are also very accommodating and helpful people. Thumbs up all around.

Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a MUST see and stay! Deborah sets the bar extremely high for other VRBO hosts. Her hospitality goes above and beyond all expectations. Thank you Deborah! The cottage is well stocked, all the way from the kitchen, to bedroom, to bathroom. It is perfectly located for anyone that has Butchart Gardens as their destination. We only stayed for 3 days. So we did not get a chance to explore much more. Its very hard to leave the cottage. We are already planning our next visit!

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First, thanks to our hosts Deborah and Dave for making us feel welcome at Woodruff Cottage, which we had the pleasure of visiting for three days in early summer. They generously shared raspberries, cherries, and greens from their extensive gardens. The cottage is clean, quiet, private, and very comfortable, with a fully-equipped kitchen. We walked to the nearby Mosi Bakery Cafe in 5 minutes or along the interurban trail to the Red Barn Market grocery in 15-20 minutes. (Or ride bikes, if you have some, as we did.) We also rode our bikes to the gardens of the HCP (Horticultural Centre of the Pacific). It's only a 5 to 10 minute drive to Brentwood Bay, and Butchart Gardens, and several bay-view restaurants, such as Blue's Bayou Cafe and the Brentwood Bay Resort Pub.

Bottom Line: We had a wonderful time at Woodruff Cottage and look forward to visiting again.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of calling Woodruff Cottage home for our recent 18 day stay in Victoria. It was a clean, cozy, well-equipped cottage that offered us an ideal self-contained space to use as a base for getting our son established in Victoria. It is in an excellent location in a quieter more rural environment while only being a short drive to shopping malls, Cook Street Village and downtown Victoria. It was also well situated for accessing the airport, The Butchart Gardens and the Brentwood Bay ferry for other day trips.

We found it easy to unwind after our busy days in the beautiful surroundings that are part of the property that Deborah and Dave have created. And falling asleep to the sound of spring peepers from the pond was an added treat. Deborah and Dave are warm and welcoming hosts with great local knowledge. We knew they were there if we needed anything but the design of the cottage and property offers lots of privacy too.

It was an easy place to look after and making meals was convenient including the gas bbq but we also enjoyed having Mosi's Bakery and Cafe within walking distance for morning coffee or pizza nights. Plus the Red Barn is only a short drive away for great deli sandwiches, excellent meat and other supplies. And should you find yourself in need of a garage we can highly recommend Prospect Lake Auto just at the corner.

The only thing we didn't like was the fact that we had to leave but we will definitely be back!
