A wonderful retreat

5 on October 13, 2014

Having been recommended Wit's End by fellow travelers it certainly lived up to and exceeded our expectations. The room, the breakfasts, the garden, the wine and nibbles on arrival and the very pleasant hosts Heather and Sandy made for a wonderful three night stay. Wits End is close to Victoria and a pleasant short drive to Butchart Gardens.

a piece of heaven so close to Victoria

We (my husband, our daughter - 6 - and myself ) are just back from a wonderful trip on Vancouver Island and want to thanks again Heather and Sandy for the highlight we had at their Wit´s End Retreat. Coming from Europe, we are used to good B&B, especially when traveling in France where I am from, but what we have experienced in this one was outstanding. It starts with a very warm welcome in the beautiful garden, a very spacious room and bathroom, well-decorated and perfectly equipped, and finally the delicious breakfast we won´t forget! If you look for a unique experience in a quiet and wonderful place close to Victoria, don´t miss the Wit´s End Retreat!

I had the pleasure of staying here with my husband when he was on a business trip. My husband had been once on his own for business and just had to bring me on his next trip so that we could share the experience. Blissful is the word. Our hosts were fabulous, friendly and helpful. The accomodations were perfection. Food brilliant. AND, a beautiful beach just off the property. We look forward to another visit in the future.

Sophisticated Woodland Retreat

Wits End is a treasure! Find it, you will love it! Heather and Sandy have filled their B&B with every luxury. Sublime gourmet breakfasts, soft robes, fluffy towels, heated tile bathroom floor, fridge filled with wine, juices, cheese and surprises, comfy bed, and peaceful garden views out large windows. If you want a lovely spot outside of Victoria, but just a few minutes away from town, find Wits End Retreat just above Witty Beach.

An Event to Remember

5 on August 03, 2011

I recently planned a vow renewal for a couple celebrating 30 years together, and we had the celebration on Heather and Sandy's beautiful property. They catered the event and were very accommodating with all of the special requests. They were a pleasure to work with while creating this event and I would definitely work with them again in the future. Their property does justice to the city's name "the garden city", beautiful and extensive, it is obvious that they take great pride and care in all that they do. My client also rented the B&B for the evening before the event and she was incredibly impressed with the mixture of modern amenities and rustic charm. She found Heather and Sandy to be completely accommodating and incredibly generous and thoughtful with their time and all of the little touches (free Wi-Fi, in room fridge stocked with water and juice, crackers and wine, robes, TV, etc.) I would recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking to relax in a beautiful setting away from the noise of the city but still have a top notch experience.
