“Perfectly placed retreat on Vancouver Island”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The suite was perfect for our stay on Vancouver Island. It was easy to get in to Victoria but also a great starting point for a day out exploring the West Coast too. Lovely quiet neighbourhood with plenty to do within walking distance too - woodland walks, Hatley Castle and Gardens and the Ocean Boulevard and it's beaches too.

The Suite was a great size, well equipped, clean and felt very homely. It has a lovely garden that backs on to the woodland and we saw deer just the other side of the fence as we sat eating our meal the first night - brilliant. The hot tub was incredible and we used it every evening - perfect after a day spent exploring.

Our hosts kept great contact before and after our stay, they were friendly, really helpful and quick to respond,

Whilst visiting I'd recommend visiting the Pot Holes at Sooke - great for some wild swimming.

“Lots of Extra Touches”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent two nights at Elemental Insights and were quite pleased with all the extra touches Frank and Angela provided. It was so helpful to have spices, oils and other basic things we could use for cooking. The suite is clean, spacious and very private. The use of the hot tub was appreciated after a long day of exploring the area and the opportunity to make long distance calls to anywhere in Canada is something we haven’t seen in any of our other rentals. While we didn’t have the chance to meet the owners they were quick to get back to our emails. All in all, it was a pleasant stay and we would recommend the suite to others who were looking to stay in the area.

“Perfect Location for this Lovely Garden Suite”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

I cannot recommend this suite enough - it is perfect! Where else can one stay and be surrounded by lovely flowers and gardens, a forest, a castle and be 5 blocks from the ocean? Also it is 20 minutes from Victoria and about 30 minutes from Butchart Gardens and the Ferries. The bed is super comfortable and all needed amenities are within the suite and garden. (Hot tub, BBQ, kitchen, large screen TV, free Wi-Fi, free CA and US land line, washer and dryer, etc.) Frank and Angela are very gracious hosts, and they are very helpful with suggesting fun things to do in the area, but they don't bug you a lot either. My sisters and I were thrilled with our two week stay here. Til next time......
