We stayed in the Hemminway suite - and it was perfect. Elona is a lovely hostess, with her smiles , positive thoughts . She shared her knowledge of the area with us. We would definitely return to the Hemminsway by the sea b&b.

After some research, I picked Hemingway's By the Sea for a weekend getaway; it certainly fit the bill for a wonderful base for exploring Victoria. Ilona greeted us with tea and cookies and, after settling us in, gave us a hand-annotated map and some wonderful advice on parking and nightlife. The B-and-B is outside of the city (in a residential...

Ilona was fabulous at helping us plan our day. She was very flexible with breakfast time and was a very good cook! We stayed six days and were made to feel as a member of her family. Wait until you get there to make reservations for popular activities. Ilona's knowledge will ensure that you get the most Victoria has to...

Needed a place to stay last minute on a long weekend and managed to get an amazing room here. The wonderful host brought us in immediately and prepared us some tea and snacks as we settled in. Could not have asked for a more beautfiul place to stay for the night.

A great b&b with various rooms to suit set in a wonderfully quiet and respectful residential area. We had the self contained two bedroom apartment which was perfect for our stay. The apartment was clean and tidy and had appliances for use. Our time there was lovely. Our host was a truly remarkable lady with a good heart, she works...

We had a very relaxing time at Ilona`s place- Hemingways By The Sea. I felt like I was staying with my own sister. The Breakfast was full, fresh and prepared with care, catering to each of us. The location is in a safe, quiet neighborhood-2 doors away from the CFB family housing. The ocean, is only 2 blocks away, with...

What a gracious way to be cared for! We had comfort, companionship and a sense of family. The home is decorated with Hemingway decor and we had privacy plus companionship around the breakfast table each morning. What a great way to meet people from different areas.

My husband and I really enjoyed our two nights in this inn. The house was lovely, very true to its 'Hemingway' theme, our room was very spacious and comfortable and Ilona, our hostess, was very welcoming and helpful. Our room, the Key a West, had a beautiful big window overlooking the street to the ocean beyond, and a comfortable bed....
