Victoria Bed and Breakfast
Victoria Bed and Breakfast in a unique Edwardian heritage home. Only 500 steps from the Inner Harbour!
Marketa's Bed and Breakfast, Victoria, BC, offers a unique taste of traditional hospitality mixed with European flair. As soon as you walk into this heritage Victoria home built in 1912, the paneled walls echo a different era. An era of Edwardian comfort and hospitality, a place to rest and recuperate after a day investigating the many treasures of downtown Victoria, BC - the garden city.
Marketa's Bed and Breakfast, Victoria, BC, offers everything from the romance of hand-crafted four-poster beds and Air-jetted tubs for two, to beautifully decorated standard and family rooms all at remarkably affordable rates. Choose from private or shared baths and queen-sized or even four-poster beds. With several rooms, all uniquely decorated, Marketa's accommodation offers all the personal service and ambience of a bed and breakfast with the convenience and charm of an inn.
The attractions of Victoria, BC, are just a stroll away as the sound of seagulls leads you to Victoria's breathtaking inner harbour. Stop awhile and watch the float planes landing and taking off alongside million dollar yachts, charming sail boats and Victoria's captivating tiny harbour ferries that zip around the inner harbour picking up and dropping off passengers at the many attractions that dot the harbour.
Walk a little further and the famous Empress Hotel comes into view (perhaps you will try one of their superb English high teas) and to your right the Legislature building, which at night is a marvellous spectacle of lights. Next you will see one of North America's finest museums, the Royal BC Museum. Want to journey a little farther? Walk for a few more minutes and you have the choice of either world-class shopping along Government Street or, in the opposite direction, the peace and tranquility of Beacon Hill Park with is fabulous flower display. One interesting fact about Victoria is that there are flowers and cherry blossoms blooming as early as February!
Feeling tired? Our British Columbia Bed and Breakfast is still less than ten minutes or so away, where all the comforts of home await you. Your friendly and helpful host, Marketa and her lovable small dog (with a big name) MR. T, will welcome you and ensure you have a wonderful stay. Marketa is also an artist and her stunning art-work greets you at every turn as you wander through the Victoria house.
Later, retire to beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable rooms, each displaying Marketa's unique design flair. Sleep soundly, for tomorrow offers another busy day of sightseeing. Perhaps you will take one of our specially discounted guest packages offered by local tour groups and visit Butchart Gardens, Kayak through the inner harbour and into the Gorge waterway or be really adventurous and take a Zodiac ride, go whale-watching and get to meet our resident killer whales, right up close.
Whatever you decide, a day of excitement awaits you and you will need a good breakfast. Mingle with the other guests in the sunny breakfast room, or on the deck, take a look at the gourmet breakfast menu and prepare yourself for a feast.
