We took Canada by storm...

A travel blog entry by varucasventures

Girls night in Victoria, BC Canada. We had high hopes to see Butchart Gardens but nature had other plans. We awoke Friday morning to the only rain storm I got to see while visiting Seattle... of course it's on the day we plan to be outside strolling through a majestic garden.
Not to worry, we found lots to entertain us in beautiful Victoria. < …

Well today is the day! At 4pm my first plane takes off from Victoria. I can't believe that this is actually happening and that I am finally doing something on my bucket list. When I was planning this trip it was originally going to be me going away for Christmas, but I am glad my mum mentioned leaving a few days later and going to New Years. The next post here will hopefully be made from ...

Goodbye Alberta Hello again BC

... Victoria! We got our hire car. It's a Chevrolet Equinox and smaller than our last one with not as many bells and whistles! Andrew was not impressed. Found our way to the motel where we all crashed for a while. Andrew has caught a bug - hopefully the rest of us won't get it! After a rest we drove into town and walk around the harbour. Heaps of people around. Beautiful clear night. Got excited as we thought we found a Beavertails cart ...

Butchart Gardens & Whale Watching

... not to go on the jet boat as we didn't fancy getting soaked with spray and it was going to be 3 hours. The jet boats had fun bouncing and broggying over the wake of our boat - we had had our bit of fun in a jet boat in NZ. We did a 100 km round ...

... Well, we can each check one bag and carry on one bag . . . anything else is extra . . . how much . . . $11.20 (not $11.50 . . . $11.20 . . . go figure!!). So, I pay to check two additional bags.

Then things get interesting . . . remember the big box at the ferry terminal in Prince Rupert . . . well, that big box had a bike in it . . . only I didn’t know it had a bike in it . . . I don’t know if it was made of titanium or some carbon fiber ...

    June Escape


    This was our second stay at the Humboldt House and it was as delightful as our first. Our room was romantic and decorated beautifully. Every room I have seen there (and we peaked in at several) are of unique design and ambience. Love the jacuzzi tubs! The breakfast was very generous (I recommend the eggs benedict) and served unobtrusively by way of a two-way pantry cubboard. We enjoyed the welcoming touches such as the flowers, truffles and champagne. Our innkeepers were very welcoming and helpful. They were sincere in wanting us to have a wonderful trip and were happy to make suggestions or answer questions. We are already planning a return trip.

    Outstanding stay at the Humboldt..


    Outstanding stay. Romantic, great location and outstanding breakfast. We loved the breakfast delivery to the "breakfast box".... David, the innkeeper, was an excellent host and was able to arrange for all of our requests.... The room was outstanding..

    Loved it!


    My husband and I recently returned home from a wonderful stay on Vancouver Island. Our stay at the Humboldt House in Victoria was perfect! This is a lovely B & B in a perfect location. We were able to walk just about anywhere that we wanted to go even though we had a rental car! David was a perfect Host and the gourmet breakfast delivered right to the room was a very special treat! We will definitely stay there again.

    Humboldt House - A Fantastic Bed & Breakfast


    We just spent the weekend in Victoria BC and spent the night at the Humboldt House Bed & Breakfast. We were looking for a private, quaint, comfortable and romantic accomodations and the Humboldt House provided them all. The rooms had their own private fireplaces and double jacuzzi tubs. The morning breakfast, which consisted of the the entree of our choice, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee and baked goods was delivered to our room through a dumb waitor and was beyond superb. The hospitatlity provided by the Innkeeper and his staff should set the standards for all Bed & Breakfast and Inns. We found ourselves wishing we had more time to stay longer.

    Delighted with Humboldt House Bed and Breakfast Inn


    Enjoyed the quaint accommodations. Everyone was extremely kind and helpful....making reservations for dinner and whale watching. The breakfasts were absolutely delectable!!! Easy walking to the Inner Harbor. A wonderful 3 days.



    This B&B has it all figured out. While in Victoria I wanted that extra touch and that's exactly what I got. Excellent location, a wonderful room and a great host. Upon arrival I was introduced to my very spacious room (The Mikado Room) where I found a log burning fireplace, a Jacuzzi and well appointed furnishings. A glass of cherry and home made tarts were available at all times... just for that extra touch. Breakfast is a definite must have - they go over the top! I could go on and on...

    Well done Humboldt House - I will be sure to stay again next time I visit Victoria.

    Great place for romance!!!


    This place exceeded our expectations! The room was wonderful and the atmosphere very intimate. We even received fresh flours uppon our arrival. The locations is just perfect since the inner harbor is within short walking distance. The breakfast was nicely prepared!

    To keep it short: we would definitely stay there again and can recommand this place for sure!

    No top sheet = Kinda creepy


    We spent one night at the Humboldt House. The location was very convenient, close to the museum and inner harbour. David was very gracious and allowed us to drop our luggage early so we could explore the city unencumbered. When we returned to the house to settle in, we found our room (the Oriental) to be very smoky smelling. Evidently, someone lit a fire in the fireplace without properly venting everything. The room was good sized, but we were disappointed to only find a hand held shower in the spa tub. Later, when we prepared to go to bed, we found that there was no top sheet on the bed! Only a comforter in a (hopefully) clean cover! My husband did not think this was a big deal, but I was really creeped out! What if I only wanted to sleep with a blanket? If it had not been so late, and had we not already had to request an early breakfast (so we could catch the ferry) I would certainly have called to ask for a sheet. Consequently, I could not fall asleep and got no rest that night.

    Expectations Exceeded


    I just stayed at the humboldt house this weekend, after spending a week traveling. It was the only stay that met expectations and in fact exceeded expectations. The owner David was very helpful both suggesting places to visit as well as booking reservations. The breakfast in bed each morning was unbelievable with fresh crescents, fruit crepes, and fresh squeezed OJ daily. The rooms were a beautiful blend of style and comfort, and the location was phenomenal only 2 blocks away from the museum, parliament building, and Empress Hotel. I wholeheartedly recommend this B&B. I cant imagine any other comparing.
