Wurzburg, Germany

Perfect place amidst nature to stay with family and small children.


I am from Germany and stayed here with my wife and two small children for a week. Place is very nicely situated in a calm spot a few kilometres from the shore, surrounded by a forest. Everything was neat and clean. The apartment is very spacious, with a huge living room and two large bedrooms. Host was very friendly and helpful, even drove me in her car to see some interesting locations in the vicinity (hiking trail, restaurant...). There are a few rabbits living on the large lawn surrounding the house, which my kids enjoyed feeding with carrots.

Fabulous Retreat North of Victoria, B.C.

My recent stay at Xanadu Estate far exceeded my expectations. The pictures on the website 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 lavender farm and winery are right next door, and a golf course is down the street. You can easily spend several days exploring the neighbouring towns and islands, and still not scratch the surface of this scenic area. I could have happily stayed a month and 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.


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 colours 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 ferries. Around the corner is a wonderful little lavender 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.

Leslie: Wonderful Xanadu Stay

We had a very nice stay in one of the Xanadu suites. It was a very spacious, nice suite. The kitchen was well appointed--really the whole suite is! On top of having a very nice little apartment, the grounds are so beautiful and relaxing. Jane is very nice and helpful. The location is so nice we would have been happy to sit outside and enjoy the grounds, sounds of ducks overhead and views, but we were busy visiting relatives. I would highly recommend Xanadu if you are looking for a place that will provide additional amenities beyond a standard hotel along with a nice get-away location.


Rachel: YES, to Xanadu Estate

Our stay at Xanadu was like a home away from home. The site and rooms were incredibly clean and well prepared. Its convenient location allowed us to see lots of the island away from the main tourist areas. The space was super comfortable with 2 bedrooms, living and kitchen. The outdoors are welcoming with lots of sitting areas, various landscapes and even a trampoline (our daughter loved jumping on it, we enjoyed laying on it to look at stars). Jane was fabulous from the moment we booked- very informative and helpful to make our trip easy. We would definitely book again if going to BC. Thank you!
