      Five Nights in March

      Excellent stay in all regards. Would recommend to others seeking a peaceful setting with all amenities and yummy extras! Close to town as well and to golf.

      5/5 Excellent

        Excellent accomodations and great hosts

        Very nice rural property, quiet & beautiful. Hosts did a great deal to make our stay enjoyable with many extra touches( cookies, jams etc). They were very friendly but also respected our privacy. The provision of generator power for my wife's oxygen machine when there was a general power outage in the area was much appreciated.

        5/5 Excellent

          Charming, clean, pleasant, private, excellent.

          Hosts were most welcoming. Suite charming with everything needed in it, even an umbrella and home made jam. Super clean, warm, and cozy. In a wonderful location close to Patricia bay and walking trails, Sidney and airport. Clean bedding and supplies brought over every week.

          5/5 Excellent

            This location is perfect for those wanting visit the South Gulf Islands of BC. Beautiful country!

              Cozy and Clean and Everything In-between

              This is one of the best short term stays we have had the pleasure of enjoying. Janet has thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. The beautiful basket of goodies, fresh eggs, milk, cream, bread, jam and cooled glasses in the freezer were the icing on the cake to put this rental over the top. The bed was extremely comfortable too. We would definitely recommend the Arbutus Digs to anyone enjoying North Saanich.
