Victoria estate description

The world famous Butchart Gardens is a mere 5 minute drive from the Sunrise Suite and not to be missed. Come and join us for the 'magic of Christmas'.


At Butchart Gardens, Christmas is ultimately a season unto itself.
When visiting Victoria during the holiday season. One of the top overall attractions, Butchart Gardens transforms itself into a winter wonderland once early December rolls around. Tens of thousands of lights help to set the stage, as do wreaths, evergreen swags, ice skating, carolers, cosy fireplaces in the dinning rooms and much more. It's truly to be enjoyed especially once the sun goes down.

Stay in this light and bright private suite which enjoys southern exposure with beautiful views.

Overlooking the gardens and meadows of Heathwood, the Mt Newton Valley, the Olympic mountain range in Washington and the ocean at Brentwood Bay.

This 1000 sq. ft. Sunny, cheerful suite is spacious and peaceful and has been designed with attention to detail to make your stay unforgettable.

The kitchen is fully equipped with many extras

The spacious bedroom has a luxuriously comfortable king sized bed with fine linens and private patio and meadow view, a cozy chesterfield for a quiet place to relax and read as well as a hand carved desk for those who wish to work.

The generous living room is bright and open with a cozy fireplace, intimate dining space and leads to your private patio.

The amazing views and ambiance of Heathwood lay just outside your door.

Centrally located in the Mt. Newton valley, local activities are just moments away. Whether you like to commune with nature, hike trails, walk along beaches, whale watch, kayak, tour gardens and wineries or shop local artists galleries and boutiques we are close to them all.

Many of our guests comment on the peaceful and relaxing surroundings here at Heathwood and they so enjoy the delightful cuisine that our local restaurants provide.

We encourage you to enjoy all that Heathwood has to offer and we look forward to your stay with us.
