... Queen Victoria, this seems like of appropriate). I went for a quick walk around immediate area before heading back to the hotel to recharge the batteries of my camera and myself before heading back down to the Parliament Buildings at about 7pm in order to get a couple of photos of the building all lit up... and it did not disappoint!!! It looked amazing and kind of took my breath away. The building ...
... enough walking for one day by this stage, but I wanted to fit in as much as possible.
This was advertised as Victorias "ghostly walks", so I knew I'd be in for the usual share of stories designed to scare and thrill, but these aside, the history and actual true events in this city's colourful past made for great and sometimes grisly entertainment. If you get a bit freaked out by things that go bump in the night you might want to skip the rest of this ...
Young lad at Reception was funning said he was glad to see we still liked them and were checking out on the right day.
Early start the morning air was very fresh a nice brisk walk to the Granville Station to catch the Millenium Skytrain. Nice young lad showed us where to go and had the nerve to ask for some change I gave him a US dollar as I didn't want to waste any Canadian money. Had to change trains ...
... Bear, just sitting there on the hillside digging for worms, oblivious to the people below watching him! It was amazing! This made my day, although now we have actually seen a bear, we are a little nervous about camping tonight (well in the car camping) Ida lake where there is a free campsite is in the middle of a Forrest next to a lake! It's stunningly beautiful but smack in the middle of bear an cougar country! Ah well, we are in a car, nothing can get ...
... where we would be getting the Black Ball Company’s ferry MV Coho over to Victoria BC and Dave & Yvonne’s home for a few days. We still had time though to amble along at our usual pace and take in the lovely Washington scenery of endless forests and its impressive coastline of rugged cliffs, dark grey sand beaches often piled high with tree trunks thrown up by the big Pacific surf.
Somewhere on the highway north of Hoquiam we passed a lone ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Chalet by the Sea Victoria
We only spent one night at Chalet by the Sea, but it was a nice one. The arts-and-crafts-style house is cozy and has been lovingly restored. Our room (the smallest of the four but still quite large) faced out onto the garden and was decorated in a flowery motif, with beautiful antique furnishings. Our only quibble was the scarcity of drawer space for stowing clothes.
A very comfortable place to stay and it was great for us that kids are allowed. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and our hosts were very welcoming.
Pleasant old world setting
My wife and I had two wonderful nights at Chalet by the Sea.
The house is quiet and subdued. Interesting art works
can be found throughout.
Our room was large and our beds were extremely comfortable.
The rooms had many antique accents. Everything was very clean and neat.
Our host and hostess created delicious breakfasts, taking pains to use
It was about a half block walk to a lovely park ( dotted with joggers
and romping dogs that looked out over the water and mountains.
The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood.
All in all this was one of our nicest B&B experiences.
We visited in mid January, not the ideal time to visit Victoria, but the warmth of the welcome and the hospitality soon made us know that we would have a fabulous time. We stayed in the English Country room, and our son & friend were across the hall in the La Dolce Vita. We stayed 4 nights.
In planning a trip to Victoria, we found the Chalet by the Sea bed & breakfast through a random web search. It looked promising, though, so we booked our stay -- and lucky we did! It exceeded our expectations in every way: the large, graciously decorated rooms; warm, welcoming hosts; and picture-perfect breakfasts where all of the details were carefully, deliciously, presented. We stayed 4 nights, and would have stayed 40! Our stay was made complete by the expert recommendations we received from our hosts. Every bit of advice pointed us in the direction of the best Victoria had to offer -- tips we did not find in the guidebooks but which always proved to be wise and good.
Our stay at Chalet by the sea was like visiting old friends, who happen to be great cooks with a beautiful house. The beds are outstandingly comfortable, and the rooms generously spaced. We recieved the utmost in attention and generousity. Whenever we had a question the staff was there to help us. We were greated each morning with smiles and a huge, delicious breakfast, which allowed us to save time and money with a quick and light lunch. The chalet is just steps from the Inlet and a beautiful walking path, where the locals walk their dogs and watch the sunset. A wonderful adventure for the afternoon. We can't wait to revisit the chalet and take advantage of the bathtub and fireplace in the room all over again, and hopefully have some time to relax and enjoy the reading room by the dining table much more than the last trip.
Enchanting Quiet Retreat
Chalet by the Sea was my first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and now, it will be the standard to which I will compare all future B&Bs. The Vitos were gracious, hospitable and imformative. Without a trace of intrusiveness - they tended to every detail. Located 1 block from the beach and a nice 20minute walk into the center of town, Chalet by the Sea is a two story house located in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is very clean, nicely appointed and with ample space in each room. The house is virtually your own when you are a guest and breakfasts are not to be missed! You will not go away hungry or unhappy when you stay at the Chalet by the Sea.
chalet by the sea gives a new meaning to the title B&B!!!!
Two couples, one from Ontario, the other from Alberta, enjoyed four nights at Chalet by the Sea, a beautiful home built in 1911. The beds and bedding were luxurious, the bathrooms were modern and well-appointed, and the location was one block from a lovely walk along the sea or across Beacon Hill Park into town. The hosts, Alexander and Ava were gracious and helpful. One of the guests needed a gluten-free breakfast, not always the easiest meal to provide. Ava had bought gluten-free bread (from the Edmonton bakery, Kinnikinnick) and served gourmet breakfasts to all of us. The presentation was beautiful and the food tasted just as good. Breakfast provided us with enough sustinance to take us to the evening meal with just a light snack in the afternoon. We would all return to, or recommend, Chalet by the Sea.
