Villa Marco Polo Bed and Breakfast Inn

Our room was exceptional-huge, comfortable, filled with amenities that we could not have imagined such as an in-room fireplace, several sitting areas and an incredible bathroom. We have stayed in many B&Bs but Villa Marco Polo was an incredibly beautiful home in a lovely residential area. The public spaces are gorgeous and our hosts Diana and Alex were warm and welcoming and more than willing to orient us to the local area. Their restaurant suggestions were perfect as well. If we return to Victoria, we will definitely stay here. The only “downside” for a traveler unfamiliar with the island is that the main tourist sights are a drive or bus ride away. This was not a problem for us as we had a car.

We traveled to Victoria via ferry for our 30th wedding anniversary, We wanted to get acquainted with a residential neighborhood outside of the Empress-Parliament area we knew very well from previous trips. Villa Marco Polo was an exceptional place to stay — it reminded us of all the reasons why we used to stay in B and B lodgings rather than hotels. The managers, Diana and Alex, were so welcoming and informative — they gave us great tips about places to eat in both Oak Bay and downtown Victoria, information about the history of the Villa Marco Polo, the First Night celebration dowtown on New Years’ Eve, and oriented us to our location and nearby attractions. Alex even, unasked, gave us information on how to get to Saltspring Island. Our room, the Persia Room, actually was three rooms in one: the bedroom, a large windowed room with a soaking tub on a platform, and a large bathroom with a good sized shower. There was a walk in closet, with built in cabinet as well. Parking in the beautiful neighborhood was free. Also included in the room price was a 4 course gourmet breakfast that Diana cooked and Alex served in the L’Orangerie sunroom. The house also includes a beautifully-appointed library, with availability of port and teas, and a gorgeous backyard with a fountain and statuary. We were totally content and felt very well cared for.
