Guestbook comments from the owner

Recently returned from a two-week stay in this beautiful home. Michelle was an excellent host. We found the house perfectly equipped, spotless and full of surprises ie location and with a perfect sunrise. No details have been overlooked. Mill Bay is a friendly town with an excellent grocery store, good restaurants and access to remarkable beaches. Close to golf courses, wineries, provincial parking for hiking etc. Easy drive to Victoria, access to Sidney via Brentwood Bay - Mill Bay Ferry, but mostly we loved the picturesque and spectacular views from our living room. We look forward to returning soon. It was everything plus what we were expecting.

Gorgeous rental steps from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 weeks Oct./nov. Michelle and Cam were great hosts. There when we needed them but really respected our privacy. The rental was spotless and there was everything we needed. The bed was soooo comfy it was hard to get up in the morning! But there is so much to see and do we couldn't wait to get out and explore. Mill bay has everything you need but Victoria, Duncan and Nanaimo are just a short drive away. We highly recommend this rental and will stay again if we come back this way.

Beautiful Mill Bay

  • 5 of 5

Truelly a beautiful home with awesome views of the ocean. Everything was great including the bed which was so comfortable. Would say her again in a heartbeat and probably will. The golfing was also great and will probably retire at Arbutus Ridge area. Highly recommend this place to say for a visit.

exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Thank you to Michelle and Cam.

Your guesthouse exceeded our expectations. The pictures online are spot on; a beautful, well maintained home, fabulous view, and very quiet vacation home to spend our time on Vancouver Island, Mill Bay area. We loved our home away from home. Highly recommend Michelle and Cam's Mill Bay Guesthouse.

Long term rental

  • 5 of 5

A huge thank you to Michelle and Cam for renting me their little piece of heaven for 6 months while my son attended school in the area. The guesthouse was perfect. I brought a few extra comforts from home but it really had everything I needed. The location couldn't be any better. You are literally steps to a gorgeous beach that makes this place even more special. The Mill Bay shopping plaza, only 1 km down the road, has everything you need. It's an easy 30 minute drive south to Langford (which has more shopping, restaurants & a movie theatre) and 10 minutes past there you are in downtown Victoria. You can spent endless hours exploring the hiking trails and other beaches in the area. My sixx months flew by and I will truly miss my little home away from home :)

Thank you again for making me feel at home and for providing such a beautiful place for others to enjoy.

Great Place to Explore the Valley

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderful guesthouse. Michelle was a gratious host who was available if needed and provided us with excellent accomodations. The guesthouse was perfect for us and we loved the large balcony and the wide open space the door provided. We used the place as our base and we explored from Victoria to Nanaimo to the north. We hiked, ate and cruised the wineries. Kitchen was well equipped and I used the grill several nights to cook our fresh salmon. Bed was comfortable with no problem falling asleep for us. The property is as it appears in the pictures, although the landscaping around the property is got given justice in the pictures. Area is quite with no road noise that we heard. You are close to a grocery store so it is easy to stock up on what you want. Thanks again Michelle for a wonderful time at your guesthouse. It was a great break for us both!

Heaven away from home

  • 5 of 5

Michelle and Cam's guest house is the perfect retreat. Immaculate, well thought-out, convenient, homey, comfortable, and a spectacular view! Plus, Michelle's hospitality is evident in all of the amenities offered, and her promptness and warmth on communication. I would recommend staying here in a heartbeat. In fact, the only reason we might *not* come back to stay here is tht we loved it so much we want to move to the area :)
