About Ken and Fern Davey

As long time residents of the Victoria area, Ken and Fern are very familiar with the many activities and amenities available in Victoria or anywhere on Vancouver Island. Ken is an avid sports fisherman and is very familiar with sports fishing opportunities. Fern has kayaked most of the Vancouver Island and adjoining Gulf Island waters. Evidence of our enjoyment of gardening is immediately visible especially from spring through fall. As your hosts, we take our cues from you. We are happy to provide Island information and respect that some guests prefer their privacy.

Ken and Fern Davey purchased this house in 1993

Why Ken and Fern Davey chose North Saanich

The suite is located in a quiet neighbourhood across the street from a public pier that overlooks lovely Deep Cove harbour and the Saanich inlet.

What makes this house unique

The property is located in a quiet area suited to many outdoor activities as well as having easy access to restaurants, shopping, transportation (ferries/ airport) and the Institute of Ocean Sciences. Many people enjoy kayaking in the calm waters of the Saanich Inlet and we were drawn to the rural charm of the area.

Couldn't have been better. We strolled the beautiful country side roads to deep cove and the muse winery. Our carriage house apartment was clean and comfortable. Ken and Ferns country house could not be more charming with gardens galore. Ken an Fern were wonderful hosts.. We loved it!!!

This B&B is stunning. It is located on a beautiful, large, secluded property, surrounded by trees and very attended to gardens. I likened it to the Butchart Gardens. My daughters and I stayed for 9 days and I did a lot of my own cooking and just went out to eat a few times. Fern and Ken are so kind and generous and stocked us up with homemade jams and breakfast foods, eggs included. There are lots of modern kitchen appliances even including a crockpot (I made soup while there). It is well furnished and has a lovely decor. The property is spotless and the owners are very respectful of their guests' privacy, while still readily being available to answer questions in person, by phone or email. It is quiet, and located less than a 10min ride to the other side of the peninsula to the ferry dock and Sidney. About 30 to 40min drive to Victoria. 10 min drive to airport. This property is a great stay too for someone with allergies - there are not any pets and you can easily accommodate food allergies by doing your own cooking in the kitchen, not having to eat out all the time. Lots of fresh air when windows are open. We can't wait to go again!

A great place to stay on vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The suite was beautiful and well stocked with everything you could ever need. The hosts Fern and Ken were very nice and gave us their time to give us suggestions on places to go and things to see. The property was beautiful and they encouraged us to feel free to sit out in their beautiful yard anytime. We would definitely stay there again. 😎

It is a short walk to a public pier, calm ocean kayaking waters, 10 minutes drive to the Victoria airport or ferries to Vancouver and Washington State, 15 minutes from Butchart Gardens or excellent shopping in Sidney-by- the-Sea and for enthusiasts tennis courts one mile away. Walk to the corner store for coffee and a muffin and watch the sheep being herded across the street.
