Why Michelle Larsen chose Vancouver Island

Beautiful Mill Bay

  • 5 of 5

Truelly a beautiful home with awesome views of the ocean. Everything was great including the bed which was so comfortable. Would say her again in a heartbeat and probably will. The golfing was also great and will probably retire at Arbutus Ridge area. Highly recommend this place to say for a visit.

exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Thank you to Michelle and Cam.

Your guesthouse exceeded our expectations. The pictures online are spot on; a beautful, well maintained home, fabulous view, and very quiet vacation home to spend our time on Vancouver Island, Mill Bay area. We loved our home away from home. Highly recommend Michelle and Cam's Mill Bay Guesthouse.

Long term rental

  • 5 of 5

A huge thank you to Michelle and Cam for renting me their little piece of heaven for 6 months while my son attended school in the area. The guesthouse was perfect. I brought a few extra comforts from home but it really had everything I needed. The location couldn't be any better. You are literally steps to a gorgeous beach that makes this place even more special. The Mill Bay shopping plaza, only 1 km down the road, has everything you need. It's an easy 30 minute drive south to Langford (which has more shopping, restaurants & a movie theatre) and 10 minutes past there you are in downtown Victoria. You can spent endless hours exploring the hiking trails and other beaches in the area. My sixx months flew by and I will truly miss my little home away from home :)

Thank you again for making me feel at home and for providing such a beautiful place for others to enjoy.

Great Place to Explore the Valley

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderful guesthouse. Michelle was a gratious host who was available if needed and provided us with excellent accomodations. The guesthouse was perfect for us and we loved the large balcony and the wide open space the door provided. We used the place as our base and we explored from Victoria to Nanaimo to the north. We hiked, ate and cruised the wineries. Kitchen was well equipped and I used the grill several nights to cook our fresh salmon. Bed was comfortable with no problem falling asleep for us. The property is as it appears in the pictures, although the landscaping around the property is got given justice in the pictures. Area is quite with no road noise that we heard. You are close to a grocery store so it is easy to stock up on what you want. Thanks again Michelle for a wonderful time at your guesthouse. It was a great break for us both!

Heaven away from home

  • 5 of 5

Michelle and Cam's guest house is the perfect retreat. Immaculate, well thought-out, convenient, homey, comfortable, and a spectacular view! Plus, Michelle's hospitality is evident in all of the amenities offered, and her promptness and warmth on communication. I would recommend staying here in a heartbeat. In fact, the only reason we might *not* come back to stay here is tht we loved it so much we want to move to the area :)

A trip to remember

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better time staying in this beautiful guest house! Every morning we would open the glass garage door that serves as an enormous window and let the clean, cool, fragrant Mill Bay air in. Coffee would be brewed, and we would sit on the balcony, soaking in the sun, reading, chatting or planning our day. Nights would find us grilling fresh salmon on the balcony. This guest house is stocked with everything you need - appliances, soft towels, snuggly linens and plump pillows. The house is immaculately clean, and the owners make sure you have all the privacy you want. We can't wait to come back and bask in the beauty and comfort of this warm, friendly home and wooded, welcoming town. Thanks for the lifelong memories!
