About Char Roth

Bob and I have been married for forty years, have three beautiful daughters, three handsome son-in-laws, five perfect grandbabies and our special golden doodle, Bella. We are fitness nuts, love to golf (but don't seem to get time) and love to entertain. Over the years we have made several friends thru the Rotary exchange program and enjoy their frequent visits back to Canada and our trips overseas to see them.

Why Char Roth chose British Columbia

Employment opportunities brought us to Vancouver Island from Prince George BC. We bought this piece of property three years after moving to the Island. We wanted to get out of the busyness of the city. When we purchased this home, it needed a lot of work. We did it! We love it! We know you will love it as well!

What makes this house unique

More than anything, we enjoy sharing our view. It is hard to take your eyes off of the amazing sights of all the activity going on around us. Boating and fishing below, planes coming and going from the Victoria airport off in the distance, watching the cruise ships, BC ferries and the wildlife. Many of our guests decide to just stay put here and enjoy the majestic experience.

Better than home! I could call it Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at "Magnificent Malahat B&B" for a few weeks during January-February 2016. It was better than home. All was at superlative: accommodation, food, view, neighborhood etc. No reason to go to a hotel when a 5 star service is provided by real caring people - Char and Bob. I remember especially when I was sick in bed how the soup made by Char made me well, so the next day I was able to go again and do my work. I will sure be back with my wife this time and enjoy the hot tub and the wonderful scenery - a full HD screen with a diagonal of 10Km available to watch from your own bed.

Gigantische Aussicht - fantastische Lage Gigantic views - fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Meine Frau und ich waren leider nur für 3 Tage in dieser fabelhaften Unterkunft bei Char & Bob. Char unsere charmante Gastgeberin holte uns am vereinbarten Ort ab und wir fuhren zu der wohl einzigartigsten Lage unseren gesamten Urlaubs in Canada. Ein einmaliger Blick auf den Pazifischen Ozean, sogar vom Bett aus, Ruhe und die angenehme Art unserer Gastgeber werden wir vermissen. Nach Victoria sind es nur 30 Minuten, Restaurants in der unmittelbaren Nähe... Ein einmaliger Aufenthalt - wir kommen wieder!!! Ute & Joe

My wife and I were unfortunately only 3 days in this fabulous accommodation at Char & Bob. Char our charming hostess met us at the agreed place and we went to the most unique location our entire vacation in Canada. A unique view of the Pacific Ocean, even from your bed, rest and the pleasant nature of our hosts we will miss. To Victoria there are only 30 minutes, restaurants in the immediate vicinity ... A unique stay - we'll be back !!! Ute & Joe

A slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary and we chose wisely in our search for the perfect B&B/VRBO. The view of the bay is what first impressed us as we drove in. You are at 800 feet in elevation and there is nothing to obstruct your view of the bay and Mt. Baker! I would drive hundreds of miles just to witness this spectacular place and one of the 5 days we stayed here was dedicated to just that....staying at Char and Bob's wonderful location for the entire day without exploring the area...just watching the beautiful scenery. First off, the bedroom and bathroom are very well done on the side of luxury. Provided is a breakfast of eggs, meats, cheeses, bread, fruits, yogurt and too many beverages to list. You make it on your own time schedule. We found waking up at 9 am became easy! What a great change from the rat race of our jobs. The reason for the VRBO setting is that out your door is a cabana, bistro setting and grill and your own private hot tub...not a two person but a full size hot tub! I did several meals for my wife and I as the weather was glorious the entire time we were there and no bugs. Mill Bay, which is only 7 KM away has a gourmet grocery store so you will not want for the fun things you take a vacation for. We came from the middle states and will return sometime in the future. Meeting Char and Bob and staying in their wonderful B&B/VRBO will entice our return! Thanks for a memorable anniversary!

What a lovely little getaway spot! We were greeted with hugs from Char as we arrived and she made us feel at home immediately.

The room is beautiful and very comfortable. We were left with an array of snacks and breaky foods for us to make our own breakfasts at our leisure which was perfect. There is even a dish fairy that washes your dirty dishes for you! What more can you ask for from a vacation?

The hot tub was a special treat and we very much enjoyed sitting outside and overlooking the Saanich peninsula. The views are unbeatable even on a grey day.

You'll feel like you're a million miles away from home, even if you live just down the road. We highly recommend this little spot and we certainly hope to return!

Breathtaking View & Incredible Hosts

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we pulled into the driveway we were amazed with the view. Pictures can't possibly do it justice. We were immediately greeted by Bob and felt right at home. The property is beautiful and private. We settled in and were then greeted by Char. Felt like we had known them for years. The suite is beautiful and cozy. This is really the perfect private oasis. We were even treated like family by their super sweet dog Bella. We will be back. I'm planning another trip already to spend with my daughter. Hopefully this will be a gem I can enjoy for years to come. I highly recommend it... I wish we could have had even 1 more day. Thank you to the amazing hosts Bob and Char. You made our stay very cozy and inviting.

Car: necessary

If you are arriving via the Schwartz Bay Ferry, consider taking the Brentwood Bay Ferry over to Mill bay. It is a beautiful ride and very affordable.
