I arrived back from Gabriola Island yesterday where I had stayed for 2 days at 'Arbutus Grove B&B' 870 Duthie Road.  I would very much like to thank Renay for the warm welcome and introduction to their lovely B&B, it was very nice to meet you. It my first visit to Gabriola and I could not have wished or expected anything more.

Upon arrival Renay showed me the room which has a very nice queen size bed. She issued me the password for internet server, a key to the room and a hand-piece for the flat screen TV. (Can you believe this).  It certainly surpassed all my expectations, I was so impressed with it all I can't say enough. Also, I was left in piece after this and really saw no one until next morning when breakfast was served.

The room provided an extra fan plus one in the ceiling, a lovely in-room bathroom and shower, hair dryer, convenient outlets, housecoats and a small fridge and yes, breakfast was lovely and very filling.  All I can say is you will not be disappointed if you should chose this rustic but up-to-date B&B. A few friends in the wedding party were envious after I described all this to them.

All I can say to a few of the other B&B's on the Island is they better look out as they have some stiff competition in this new B&B.  Best regards from a very satisfied customer who would most definitely come again.

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of spending several days at Arbutus Grove B and B during a recent trip to the Northwest. After 5 days on Vancouver Island we decided to make a side trip to Gabriola Island, a 15 min ferry ride from Vancouver Island. It proved to be a good decision. The island is charming. We discovered several harbors having great views, several good eateries and areas for hiking and biking.
Arbutus Grove B and B was delightful. The home and grounds are beautifully kept  and our room was very comfortable. Our hosts went out of their way to provide an excellent experience which included a delicious breakfast each morning.
My wife and I were pleased to have discovered this gem of a get away.

Just returned home from another fabulous getaway at Arbutus Grove.  Renay and Darrell made us feel more than welcome from the very start which made enjoying their beautiful home and gorgeous property an absolute delight.

Their home is very easy to locate, just a few minutes from the ferry.  Within a short walking distance you can reach a shopping village with quaint shops for snacks, coffee, groceries, wine etc etc. The room we stayed in was brand new and decorated in warm relaxing tones, complete with flat screen, wifi, and our own in room bathroom with shower plus fridge.  The bed was exceptionally comfy too!!

Breakfast was delicious and was left upstairs in the dining area at our preferred time.  Already looking forward to our next visit.  You will not be disappointed with anything at this lovely home away from home.
