To enhance your spiritual self



While you are here, we invite you to extend your stay and more fully experience the Esquimalt Lagoon — migratory bird sanctuary, historic First Nations site and home to some of the most magnificent urban forest in North America!

Our primary offering is the Elemental Garden Suite, a lovely one-bedroom vacation rental, fully furnished with all the comforts of home. Our location offers endless opportunities for relaxation, exploration and enjoyment. You can take in the nearby beach with views of both Mount Baker and the majestic Olympic Mountains, feed the ducks and swans at the lagoon, or delight in a leisurely stroll along old-growth forest walking trails. For the artist, you can easily lose yourself for an hour at the neighbouring Coast Collective Art Gallery — and maybe even drop in for a class! If you're a history buff, you may be interested in visiting nearby Fort Rodd Hill / Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites and museums. The lighthouse, for example, dates from 1860, and was built by the British back before Vancouver Island was even a part of Canada. And, of course, there is historic Hatley Castle and gardens. Nestled on the adjoining grounds of Royal Roads University, it was designed by renowned architect Samuel Maclure and built for James Dunsmuir in 1908. During the outbreak of World War II, it was actually considered as a possible residence for the Royal Family! All this, and you still haven't even left the lagoon area.

The list of activities are nearly endless with most amenities and attractions, including downtown Victoria's Inner Harbour, all within a 20 min drive.

Staying in the suite offers you a private garden courtyard with your own entrance and sheltered coffee deck. Inside you'll find a warm decor, with everything you need to complete your stay. At the other end of the yard you'll find a flagstone patio with a relaxing hot tub to enjoy.

The Elemental Garden Suite is a non-smoking, self-catering self-contained suite in our private residence, available as a nightly (two-night minimum), weekly, or monthly rental. Please note that a refundable, advance deposit is required for all stays. We are currently only able to accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or Paypal.
