Quiet with outstanding view

5 on June 21, 2017

My wife and I recently stayed for two nights at this very nice, off the beaten path, BnB. David was extremely gracious and full of interesting history and stories. We elected to have breakfast a little later, but the irresistible aromas from his early morning preparations brought us to the table early each day for a breakfast any way we wanted it. Very close to Butchart Gardens and less than 30 minutes from downtown Victoria. The views from our room were simply outstanding. If we ever get back to that part of the world, this BnB will be on out list. The Humfelds


What a wonderful and peaceful place! Great service and spectacular views!

What a wonderful and peaceful place! My husband and I wanted to find a place "off the beaten path" so to speak! This B&B is located 12 min from Victoria, North East from Buchart Gardens, nestled in the forest on the mountain. The hosts greeted us so warmly and were a joy and so much fun to be around! The service they gave us was wonderful. We swam in the pool, enjoyed the hot tub and David kindly showed us some walking trails around their place. The breakfast was wonderful. The atmosphere was welcoming and so much fun! We felt at home right away! The room was a little small, but we were late with our booking, so we got their so called spare room. It was still lovely! The location is awesome and we truly enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful setting! The views are incredible! We will come back for sure! Thank you David and Jill for making our stay so lovely!


wonderfully quiet getaway

David was wonderfully friendly and kind. He drove us from the airport and downtown as we needed. It was the perfect getaway after our hectic wedding. The view can't be beat, and we enjoyed the hot tub and the complementary wine :)


Beautiful views and perfect get-away

Thank you for an amazing stay. We had no idea what to expect as the room was booked for us. This is no ordinary B and B! We were greeted by David as we drove up and were welcomed with open arms. After viewing our room (Opal), our private terrace with amazing views and the common area, we went to hot tub with complimentary champagne, towels and robes. We had access to a pool, walks on trails, delicious breakfasts, complimentary wine and great views during our entire stay. We were sad to leave! Thank you David and Jill for the best stay!


Fantastic

Booking lodging via the internet is always a bit of a guessing game. Through BedandBreakfast.com, we reserved Rae Leigh Heights for a recent weekend getaway. We could not have done much better. The home’s location is idyllic. Situated on a hill at the very end of a quiet lane, RLH features stunning views of the Saanich Inlet and surrounding hills. While the trees stand tall about the property, the open garden offers sweeping vistas of the bay and landscape below. From the moment we stepped from the car, the fresh air and peaceful setting began working their magic on us. As our host said, if you squint a little bit, “you can almost see the Vikings’ sails making their way up the fjord…” The home itself is well appointed. Common areas are welcoming and comfortable. Interesting décor from various places around the world lend an international feel. We found our room to be very comfortable and tasteful. It felt like home within minutes. A comfortable bed, sufficient closet storage, an in-room coffee maker, and breathtaking views combined into a restful hideaway. We found our hosts, David and Jill, to be among the friendliest folks you could ever hope to meet. Their gracious hospitality, attentiveness, and kindness were wonderful. They took splendid care of us. The generosity of David’s fresh breakfast portions was matched only by his sense of humor. We recommend booking here only if you enjoy a restful home, in scenic beauty, with friendly hospitality, run by kind people. Just, please, don’t book it when we want to be there. Michael & Lindy


B&B with picture-postcard view & charming hosts

4.6 on May 24, 2016

This is not an ordinary B&B, apart from the picture-postcard view, charming hosts, wonderful breakfast, it is very quite yet close to downtown Victoria or Airport. It is worth the try to stay at this place and enjoy the warm hospitality offered by the hosts.


Wonderful place, peacful and beautiful // llg

Stayed at this BnB for six days 13-19 April 2016. Very friendly hosts Jill and David, their house is beautiful and the scenery is priceless, a nice place to stay if you want to relax in a quiet setting. They have one small apartment that has all the facilities, it would be suitable for a couple who wants to celebrate an anniversary and cook their own meals. I was welcomed with open arms and a glass of wine - bonus after being on the train four days and a few hours on the bus/ferry to the island - it was like being home away from home. With the huge of breakfast they serve you will not go hungry, all fresh and delicious. Thank you Jill and Dave, I enjoyed my time while staying at your place, hopefully you will have many people coming to your place // Lise


Worth the drive

My sister and I stayed at this B&B the end of March and it was fabulous. The hosts are very gracious and fun to visit with. The property is beautiful and the walking trail was a wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and way more food than one should eat in a sitting. There were several other guests while we were there and no issues with noise at all, great sound proofing work on the rooms. My sister and I drove in to Victoria sight seeing, as this was our plan, but I would go back to Rae Leigh just to soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the quiet beauty of the property. I will be visiting this place again and I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in this area.
