Jane makes you feel welcome while respecting your privacy - a great balancing act! The fully furnished, two bedroom suite is nicely done and is supplied with games and books if you should get bored of exploring all that this lovely area has to offer you! A car is pretty well a necessity and parking is plentiful, but there are walking trails to a park and the beach, as well as a golf course, restaurant and lavender farm just a short stroll up the road.
“Simply the best. Every modern comfort, on forested acreage, and”
Xanadu is our top choice for furnished short or long-term stays and is truly a home away from home. We've returned often, drawn by the comfy, spacious accommodation, huge bathroom and modern kitchen with every amenity. Owner Jane is a charming, warm and obliging hostess. The 5-acre forested property -- a delight to explore -- abounds in seasonal wonders including visiting deer, songbirds, owls and woodpeckers. A short 5 minute drive takes you to the picturesque shops and ferry at Mill Bay. Xanada receives our best recommendation.
“Beautiful, relaxing, charming - just the best!”
Xanadu Estate is a short scenic ride north of Victoria. When we arrived at the property we were greeted by Jane who was an incredibly welcoming host. The property is set on beautiful acreage that was covered with all the wonderful colors of fall. The suite offered everything that one could want for a relaxing vacation. (It is just as the pictures show - large, comfortable, clean with all the amenities you could possibly want.)I was sorry that we were not able to stay a bit longer. It is only a short drive to many small communities, restaurants, shopping and the ferries. Around the corner is a wonderful little lavendar farm. Nothing could be better than to explore during the day and then come back to your wonderful suite to sit and relax with a glass of wine or a cup of English tea looking out over the beautiful view. I would love to return in the summer so that I could take advantage of all the wonderful outdoor activities that are available in the area. I would definitely recommend Xanadu to everyone - singles, couples, friends and families.
“Fabulous Retreat North of Victoria, B.C.”
My recent stay on Xanadu Estate far exceeded my expectations. The pictures on the web site are exactly what you get - comfort and luxury in a beautiful, serene setting. When we arrived, the deer were munching outside the windows of our suite, and a Bald Eagle flew by. What a welcome! Jane is a lovely and gracious hostess and has furnished the suite tastefully with everything needed to have a pleasant stay. The bedrooms are large, with ample closets, and the kitchen is very well equipped. A beautiful, spacious bathroom and comfortable lounge/dining area complete your private suite. Everything was immaculate and looked brand new. Jane gave us lots of good advice on things to do in the beautiful Cowichan Valley and surrounding areas. A lovely lavendar farm and winery are right next door, and a golf course is down the street. You can easily spend several days exploring the neighboring towns and islands, and still not scratch the surface of this scenic area. I could have happily stayed a month and definitely plan to visit again. Xanadu Estate is a little bit of paradise and a wonderful, peaceful spot to relax and unwind. I heartily recommend this gem of a place.
Xanadu Estate exceeded our expectations. The suite is beautifully furnished, very spacious and has everything that you could want. 4 adults or a family would be very comfortable here - we had more room than we required as a couple. The location is beautiful and the house is surrounded by stunning gardens and woods. The region is beautiful with so many activities and places to visit. We were fortunate to be there on the weekend of the Cobble Hill fair and enjoyed a great night of music. We wish we could have stayed longer because there is so much to do and see. Jane was a wonderful host making us feel very welcome and at home.
Jane was very welcoming & accomodating. Very clean apartment. Lovely grounds. Good central location for the activities our family had planned. Husband loved firepit & kids loved outdoor cats & bunnies. Upon arrival wasn't sure how to locate owner for check-in. Loud bangs & sounded like someone stomping around in workboots late at night & early morning. Some maps and more info about area within apartment would be helpful. Ceramic tile in apartment very cold on feet. Kitchen could use a few more commonly used utensils. Use of a BBQ would also be nice. Would recommend to others with some note of caution about noise. Overall a pleasant stay.
“Wonderful Clean Comfortable accommodations”
My wife, daughter and I stayed for 10 days at Zanadu Estate in the 2 bedroom apartment located on the first floor. It was a wonderful experience. Clean, neat, comfortable and well equipped. Jane was great. Extremely helpful and friendly. She told us about all the local activities and towns. We had full use of the property to sit and enjoy the open space. The apartment is centrally located to towns and places to visit in South Vancouver Island (Salt Spring Island, Victoria 45 min., hikes, towns...). Cow Bay town was particularly nice near by within 15 minutes. The apartment is across from the golf course and indoor tennis courts. The apartment was equipped with everything we need to cook and relax. Take advantage of Jane's hospitility.
“New friendships made in a serene setting.”
Not far from Victoria, and just about as near to Nanaimo, Jane and her family welcomed us with open arms. The view of Salt Spring Island only encouraged us more to take in that adventure. Her home is beautiful, as is the acreage. We needed a car to travel to be able to get to anywhere, but that seems the norm for Vancouver Island. Blue, her siamese cat thinks that everyone is his best friend. Thanks for everything Jane...we'll be back!
