Beautiful quiet place to stay but still near to Victoria and other sites on the Island
Xanadu Estate was perfect for our (2 adults and 12 year-old son) accommodation on Vancouver Island. The place was very clean and well maintained. It was a really nice touch for the owner to provide a bottle of wine upon our arrival. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with necessary utensils and cooking pots. There was a two-burner hot plate, toaster oven, and a full-size refrigerator. We used this location as our headquarters for exploring Vancouver Island. It is about 30 - 40 minutes from Victoria, 10 minutes from Duncan and 4 hours from Tofino. It is an hour drive from the Swartz Bay ferry dock. We visited Victoria (twice), Chemainus (check out the murals and the Twisted Sisters Tea Room), Tofino (great Whale Watching, check out Tacofino for good eats), Butchart Gardens (amazing!). There is a well stocked grocery store about 10 minutes away in Mill Bay - Deloume Road (there is a Timmy's, McDonalds, two gas stations and banking at this location as well). After a busy day sightseeing it was so nice to come back to a quiet relaxing place to put up our feet. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family!
