Arbutus Hill

356 Cyrl Owen Place , Victoria, BC V9E 2B6 Canada (Show map)


Located about midway between downtown Victoria and Butchart Gardens, a location that is quiet and scenic, yet within easy reach of all that Victoria has to offer. We serve a healthy, hearty, hot, home-cooked breakfast, and warm and helpful hospitality. We use environmentally friendly, unscented, biodegradable products for cleaning, laundry and bathroom supplies. Arbutus Hill Bed and Breakfast is a great B&B value.

Peaceful Haven

This lovely home is off in the woods, providing a peaceful setting for a restful stay. Although it is definitely off the beaten path, access to Victoria is very easy by car, and there are also several restaurants only a few minutes drive away. The hosts are attentive and helpful with local advice, and offer a delicious cooked breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Stay

Donna and Jos were great hostesses. Their home was beatiful w an amazing view. I loved the location of the property as it was not right in the hub of the city but was still close enough to be able to get there w a short drive

Serene hilltop home

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Arbutus Hill B& B. The peaceful, beautiful setting high in the hills provided a lovely retreat for our family of four, after seeing the sights of Victoria. Comfortable and reasonably priced accomodations, welcoming and helpful hosts, and delicious breakfasts all made for a wonderful stay! Jos and Donna also readily offered suggestions for nearby restaurants and hiking trails. If you have a car and prefer a serene B& B, consider Arbutus Hill.

What a beautiful home. Jos and Donna are wonderful hosts and even made room last minute for our two additional guests. They are full of helpful info about the area. Breakfasts were also top notch. We'll be back!!

Wonderful stay!

About the innkeepers

We have operated our bed and breakfast for 14 years. We enjoy sharing experiences and perspectives with our guests. We retired last year from a graphic design and production business. We enjoy hiking the many scenic trails in the forests that surround Victoria. In summer we devote time to gardening on our five-acre property, much of which is wild forest. Our Dutch is fluent, our French and German less so.
