"My first B&B , excellent !"
08/28/14 deeptooth Toronto, Canada
I knew I wanted to spend some time on Vancouver Island but hadn't really researched it well. Arrive early at BoF and meet Deiter. A gentleman, knowledgable in the area, efficient, energetic and has a lifestyle I would love to emulate. BoF has everything you need for a vacation getaway, short weekend romantics or longer holidays.Terrific facilities,nice grounds and a lovely view. The best part is that Dieter has the information and the resources to make your stay perfect. I wanted to get a feel for the island and after discussing this with Dieter I realized that I didn't want to spend time driving around to catch the ferry to do some island hopping.He suggested that I rent him out with his super large and safe Zodiac which would save me time ,energy and yet see what the Island has to offer. The most efficient way was to let Dieter show me around and he did just that. We spent a lovely day at Springfield Island Market, eating shopping and enjoying a post hippy culture, talking to local folks and taking it all in whilst Dieter waited patiently and sunbathed. On the way back Dieter showed us where the big boats hang out, the Whales, sealions, Bird life, wild island goats and beautiful Island scenery. I took several real estate papers incase I decide to buy here after this. The property boasts several units that are very well furnished with everything you need. The family suite is especially interesting. The honeymoon suite overlooks the Lagoon and has a lovely view. I especially loved the breakfasts as Dieter makes them himself and presents it to the whole group. It really is a privilege to meet folks from around the world at a dining table and enjoy stories of their travels. Dieter was kind enough to let us use one of his private bedrooms as we had overstayed our trip and he was booked solid. So a second breakfast ensued, lucky for us, and more time to enjoy the company. Dieter was very helpful in directing us to attractions and events ongoing on the Island and in Victoria. An itinerary that Dieter provided for us on our way to Nanaimo really helped as we used it to make the trip more interesting. Let me add that the facilities that BoF provides will go well with large and small groups. In summary Dieter has really gone out of his way to make my trip interesting and memorable. Hs stories and conversations will stay in my memory banks for ever. I wish you well in your new marriage with your beautiful bride, and every success in your very impressive ventures. This B&B turned out to be one of a kind . Regards Hemant and Bhavna Tailor ( Toronto)
"Gem in Colwood"
08/25/14 Craigsee Vancouver
Birds of a feather provided us with a Victoria experience that was a breath of fresh air. I've lived in Victoria and visited the city many times but never stopped in Colwood or Metchosun. On this visit, once we arrived, we had no desire to go into the city. We had a spectacular view from our room and our deck, a quiet lagoon where we could go out in the canoe or kayak and trails for hiking. Once we did go for a road trip it was a quick and pleasant drive out past Sooke to the Juan de Fuca trailhead. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway to relax and recharge, or for a romantic getaway.
"weekend in Victoria - on the sea coast"
08/11/14 daniel s
We took the ferry from Vancouver and found the Birds of a Feather bed and breakfast in the suburbs of Victoria on a beautiful inlet on the sea coast (very near Hatley Park castle). The host is most gracious, informative and personable. The morning breakfast was most enjoyable and shared with 6-8 other guests. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Victoria or Vancouver Island.
"After a "Full Day""
07/31/14 retired1309 White Rock, Canada
The beds were wonderful, to be able to make an early morning coffee was a great perk. Dieter went above and beyond to give us a lift and make it "easy" for us to enjoy our evening libations without having to leave the B&B. At the end of the day, two very tired cyclists were very pleased with the accommodations! Of course the setting is perfect. L&J
"Awesome for a group of friends"
07/29/14 WendyGD Whitecourt, Canada
A group of nine of us were celebrating a 20 year anniversary of our group. Dieter's B&B provided the perfect opportunity for us to relax in between our outings. Our only hope was that we didn't disturb the other guests as our relaxation involved a lot of laughter (and wine, beer and mojitos). We had wonderful, filling breakfasts every day, that allowed us a late lunch with tapas on the deck in the evening. Dieter took us out on an all day tour in his zodiac and it was another day filled with laughter. A few of us took the time to go on early morning kayaks and watching the sunrise. Definite memories were made.
"Best experience of my life"
07/24/14 Vincent R
Staying at birds of a feather was the best expirence I lve had in my life. I am 18 years old from ontario and came out to Victoria to see all the mountains for the first time. With all the services Birds of a feather offered, such as bicycles and kayaks, it made my journey a pleasant and unforgettable experience. Not to mention the delicious breakfasts you have every morning with the other guests that come from all over the world. Its a real sense of family at Birds of a feather and id return in a heart beat! Absolutely loved it.

We stayed for a night as part of our hike across the peninsula with Trek & Treats. This is just simply a great place to stay. Bikes. Kayaks. Canoes. Helmets...life jackets...a castle to look at and an artist collective within walking distance. The room we stayed in was wonderful, great space, kitchenette, BBQ available, deck space that was wonderful and looked out over the lagoon. Dieter is laid back and welcoming and made us feel right at home. Also, great breakfast...blueberry/cream cheese stuffed french toast! The highlight? Paddling out to see the sunset at high tide on a beautiful night! Simply magnificent.
"Excellent Elopement Location"
07/19/14 Christina A Ottawa, Canada
As a second marriage for both of us - We wanted a "hassle" free experience just to get away and to show up without having to attend to all the tedious details. They certainly accommodated us and made our trip//wedding easy. They also provided the Justice of the Peace for the ceremony - Joan who was truly outstanding! Finally they kindly provided the witnesses - one of whom took pictures for us. It is truly a lovely bed and breakfast and my husband and I would recommend it, particularly to people wanting an elopement package. Thanks again Christina & Jeff.
"Of all the things to do in Victoria -"
07/11/14 Mike D
one of our favorites was staying here after a day out and about and relaxing in the late afternoon or evening sitting on the deck watching the geese, swans, and other birds and the calm waters of Esquimalt Lagoon. Dieter is helpful and informative. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a great way to end a week touring the Olympic Peninsula. This was our best B&B experience and we would happily stay here again. M&M San Francisco Bay Area

this passed June, I surprised my fiancé with a small wedding ceremony at the birds of a feather b and b. Yes, I surprised him! I live no where close to Victoria, or Vancouver Island, and the owner was away in Thailand at the time I emailed my inquiries. The next day, I received an email from the owner! Over the next few weeks we exchanged emails, he did his best to not only accommodate my fiancé, my 9 month old son, and the 20 or so people we would have present for the ceremony. He introduced me to our JOP (via email) provided info on rentals etc. The location is beautiful. Perfect for a small intimate wedding ceremony. Our wedding pictures turned out amazing - and Im sure I owe it to good weather, a great photographer, and a gorgeous landscape and setting. I stayed two nights in the honeymoon suite - and cannot say enough about it. I loved the private balcony for early mornings and late nights, and the shared balcony was a nice way to get to know other guests. We were able to canoe to the fish ladder with friends of ours who stayed in the family room for one night. Life jackets were provided for every one of us, including my infant son. My only complaint was that I did not bring my camera battery charger. Both mornings our breakfast experience was spectacular. The food, the company, and the stories exchanged made for an enjoyable morning. Dieter (or Dietre?) was a wonderful host - and I look forward to staying at the Birds of a Feather again. I cannot say enough about the great experience we and everyone at our ceremony had.
