Spectacular Space at a B&B Float Home at Fisherman's Wharf in Victoria,B.C.
The setting for my wife and my mid February Vancouver Island mini vacation was at Fisherman's Wharf on James Bay.
Carene's cozy studio float home room was a fun place to stay that was close to all of the events we were participating in (la Boheme at Royal Theatre, pub crawling and shopping in Downtown Victoria, and dining in the Inner Harbour).
Most of the venues at Fisherman's Wharf are closed during the winter months, but the water taxis are open for business and a great bargain at $6 per person.
And the walk from Carene's float home to the Inner Harbour is short.
Carene's place was perfect for the two for us. Warm,cozy and a gentle sway when the weather outside was cold,wet and blustery. Carene's home is nicely decorated with a small fridge and coffee maker and that was all we needed. We felt secure and safe in Carene's float home, especially at night when arriving home late. Carene provided just the right amount of care for us while keeping our place very private.
The breakfast portion of the B&B is at a restaurant called Imagine, that is close in proximity to Carene's float home. We had the best lattes and breakfast there we can remember. Great ambiance and warm, friendly staff and proprietors.
Storage space on any Float home is at a premium and Carene did her very best to provide as much space as she could. We felt that perhaps some of the cleaning supplies located in the bathroom cabinet could be reallocated and shelved back to a closet that held a vacuum, mops,etc. That would free up some space for my wife's makeup and my shaving kit, instead of living out of a suitcase.
All in all, we felt very comfortable and safe under Carene's roof. We can hardly wait to come back when all the venues are open at the wharf and the weather is warm.
Thank you for taking the time to write a great review- thoughtful, informative and constructive input.
As the bathroom counter is small, the mirror above it swivels and behind it is 3 shelves for make up etc. I neglected to point that out to you- apologies.
But I am going to remove the cleaning products from the bathroom closet- good input. I will also remove the patio chairs that I stored in the clothes closet where guests put their luggage. I stored the chairs there as you were here when we had high wind gusts and the chairs tend to be blown or moved about and the sound could have disturbed your sleep.
Do come back - you were great guests.
What a great place to stay in Victoria! It's a pleasant 15 minute walk from the inner harbour, so it's centrally located and just such a unique place to stay. Carene was a lovely host and gave us great tips re. walks and places to eat and then gave us complete privacy. While the wharf was fun and bustling in the daytime, it was nice and quiet at night (and felt safe at all times, including the late-evening walk home from town). The bed was comfortable, the place was very clean and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was of course small, but well-laid out and had a surprisingly spacious shower. Staying at this little gem of a place definitely added charm and fun to an already wonderful trip. Thank you, Carene!
I loved sharing my wee village and home with you as I am so fortunate to live in this coo, funky neighborhood
You were wonderful guests
R & R by the sea
We loved it! This was the highlight of our vacation. The location is central, it is right beside a bike path that winds along the coast, and there are restaurants and bars close at hand. What we liked the best was the vibrancy of the small on-the-water community. The vivid colours and electric vibe are very appealing. There were even local seals to entertain us! Although there are tourists around who go on the whale watching expeditions and eat at the restaurants, the area was quiet. And of course, in the evening, it is very quiet. The water taxi comes right to the front door so a quick trip to or from the Inner Harbour is easy! Our host was most gracious, the place was clean, the linens were very nice, the bed was comfortable. It was all good!
Thanks for your enthusiastic review. I love sharing my funky, cool village and home with guests like you
You were great guests- hope to see you again.
It was so much fun staying at Victoria's Fisherman's Wharf in a float home! The location is fabulous as you are in walking distance to the Inner Harbour, Parliment Building, and Downtown. If you wish to go further, just hop on one of the adorable water taxis that pulls up right near the float home.
Carene, the owner, was very accommodating and even met us earlier than the 4:00pm check-in time to provide us with a parking pass for our rental, as we wanted to explore the area since our flight got us into town around 12:30pm. Carene provided us with information about the area, including great places to visit/walk to and eat at.
We found our room in the float home to be very comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is there, including shampoo if you forget.
We were booked for a whale watching trip on our first morning (Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours - right at Fisherman's Wharf) so we missed having a meal at Imagine Studio Cafe but we made sure to make it there the next morning before leaving. It's a short walk across a park and worth it. Wonderful staff and delicious food!
We would happily stay with Carene again the next time we are in Victoria. Thank you again Carene for making the start of our trip so wonderful!
Hi Thanks for your detailed review and lovely words
Come back soon!
Float Home Stay - Awesome
Our stay at Carene's float home was amazing ... we were looking to be close to the water, so being on it was perfect! Carene was waiting for us when we arrived and gave us the tour of our accommodation so we were settled quickly and able to go exploring right away! It was cozy and comfortable and a perfect location in Fisherman's Wharf. The room was very clean and had everything we needed - it was really quiet at night and we had great sleeps! Very cute community in the harbour, with great little restaurants and harbor seals that were around every day! Our stay also included breakfast which was at a restaurant close by - this was a lovely place, great food, friendly staff and very relaxed - great start to our day! We loved staying there and would definitely do it again! Thanks, Carene!
Thanks for your words of appreciation I love it when guests are equally excited about staying in my floating B&B and enjoying the great location and vibrant wharf Come back one day?
Very modern float home.
We stayed at the float home for two nights on May 6 and 7. It was recommended by our friends.
The location was awesome and the water taxi stopped by our door. Quite a unique experience.
The hostess was very informative. We would definitely rent again. Esther and Douglas from Winnipeg.
