Excellent staff, friendly, helpful and flexible. Beautiful location with use of kayaks and bikes. The breakfast was wonderful , homemade and huge. We just did an overnight, so the less expensive lower room was fine.

Thank you for the review Tom. I'm glad you guys had the time to take advantage of our complimentary boats. It's amazing that here on the west coast we can enjoy water sports year round. You are right about the Honeymoon Suite being the best View , but I must say that all of our upper suites have ocean views....

We recently had the pleasure of a multi night stay at Birds of a Feather B & B ...just outside of Victoria. The property shares an exclusive waterfront with only a small number of homes. As you look out over the calm Lagoon ... toward the open ocean and Victoria ...you will be distracted by the many wildlife residents of...

We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at The Birds of a Feather bed and breakfast. We enjoyed the cosy fireplace in the luxury suite. Bed was most comfortable. Very clean and comfortable. The best was Debbie, the manager who served an excellent, filling breakfast. She was friendly and kind and a real joy to meet. The beach, many walking...

This is a beautiful, unpretentious B&B that pays careful attention to detail (such as the small telescope looking out on the lagoon). Our suite was perfectly clean, spacious and nicely equipped with all the kitchen amenities one needs. The setting is glorious and we were well looked after by a friendly and knowledgeable innkeeper who serves up a bountiful and...

This B&B is truly wonderful, and I cannot wait to go back for another stay. Beautiful and unique property with breathtaking views of the ocean, sunrise, and all the various wildlife of the lagoon sanctuary. While out in the complimentary kayaks were even accompanied by a friendly seal! I am very impressed all around with Birds of a Feather. The...

We booked this place for a quick getaway but where soon to discover it was not the room we expected. Upon arrival we where shown our room " #6 " labeled with just a sticky note. The small room had the bed pushed up against the window so no view and even if there where no bed there would be...

The room is not small. The $12,000 solid cherry wood "garage sale" as you put it is just that huge it dwarfs the room. At $79 USD point we had not anticipated an expectation issue. The other suite you were shown had become available after you had made your booking. While in hindsight we should have given you a free...

Me and a friend stayed here for one night near the end of December 2015. It was exactly what we needed. Having been working so much, we were looking for a place that was away from the hustle and bustle and it was exactly what we were looking for. A beautiful room with a beautiful view, provided by beautiful people....

Was looking forward to the stay based on the reviews, but was very disappointed. We stayed in room 6, which was not accessed through the guesthouse door but through the private innkeeper's door. The room was nothing like advertised on the website-- I think the room was part of the innkeeper's suite that was quickly converted into a rentable space,...

Dear Ms. kangaru2, It is with regret that I learned your expectations founded in our TripAdvisor reviews of our 5 star luxury condo suites were not met upon booking a USD $79.00 overflow room. In light of your experience we will now contact every booking in advance of arrival to ensure they've read this room's details and reiterate how it...

My wife and I stayed at Birds of a Feather Oceanfront Bed & Breakfast and had the most wonderful time. Our hosts Dieter and Paphada Gerhard were most gracious and made my wife and I feel at home.

Birds of a Feather Oceanfront is an awesome B&B located in a quiet and inspiring neighbourhood. As a solo traveller, I have not booked one of the luxury suites. However, from my single room, I enjoyed quality time, peace of mind and outdoor activities such as cycling and running on trails nearby with spectacular sightseeings of the lagoon and countryside....
