The four of us enjoyed relaxing in the a suite. We were able to cook, eat out side on the private patio and enjoy our Victiria wine.
We had a very nice stay in one of the Xanadu suites. It was a very spacious, nice suite. The kitchen was well appointed--really the whole suite is! On top of having a very nice little apartment, the grounds are so beautiful and relaxing. Jane is very nice and helpful. The location is so nice we would have been happy to sit outside and enjoy the grounds, sounds of ducks overhead and views, but we were busy visiting relatives. I would highly recommend Xanadu if you are looking for a place that will provide additional amenities beyond a standard hotel along with a nice get-away location.
Overall I would rate this a good place to stay. Rooms were nice and beds were comfortable. Kitchen is functional, but note there is only a hot plate and toaster oven for making simple meals. Host was very nice. Much much better than a hotel room. I can easily recommend the Xanadu Estate for someone looking to stay near Victoria.
We toured Butchart Gardens (definite yes) and the Royal British Museum (pretty good also) in Victoria. Also bring swim suits as there are beaches to the north on the east side of Vancouver Island that can make for good swimming and wading.
Rooms were clean and the property was well maintained. Owner provided good customer service.
Xanadu Estate was perfect for our (2 adults and 12 year-old son) accommodation on Vancouver Island. The place was very clean and well maintained. It was a really nice touch for the owner to provide a bottle of wine upon our arrival. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with necessary utensils and cooking pots. There was a two-burner hot plate, toaster oven, and a full-size refrigerator.
We used this location as our headquarters for exploring Vancouver Island. It is about 30 - 40 minutes from Victoria, 10 minutes from Duncan and 4 hours from Tofino. It is an hour drive from the Swartz Bay ferry dock. We visited Victoria (twice), Chemainus (check out the murals and the Twisted Sisters Tea Room), Tofino (great Whale Watching, check out Tacofino for good eats), Butchart Gardens (amazing!).
There is a well stocked grocery store about 10 minutes away in Mill Bay - Deloume Road (there is a Timmy's, McDonalds, two gas stations and banking at this location as well).
After a busy day sightseeing it was so nice to come back to a quiet relaxing place to put up our feet.
We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family!
we were lucky enough to stay with jane for 2 months at xanadu and loved it,jane is a really kind and welcoming host.The location is just right and really peaceful.

[not forgetting bun buns]
Just the place to unwind and relax
