Our guests still express delight after 28 years
I have created more art here in 3 days than I have in months at home! Deeper than relaxing — subtle-exquisite-is-the Zen of Seido-en!
Kathy & Steve – Victoria, BC
All the small discoveries here — tiny flowers tucked into the stones of a path, deer startled at night under the moon, finding Quan Yin hidden away in the forest on my last night. What an amazing and beautiful paradise.
Brie MacDonald – Victoria, BC
Seido-en has been a chance to let go of all the busy-ness of our day to day lives. As we depart and head home, we take with us a feeling of groundedness, calm, joy and deep gratitude for the beauty of life.
Richard & Terry Ann – Victoria, BC
We loved sitting in the window seat enjoying coffee. The trees are amazing and I am always a big fan of an outdoor shower.
Christina & Tim
Thank you for sharing Seido-en and the magical forest — for the peace, calm and tranquility. We had no idea how much we needed the sanctity and rest.
Julie & Andrew
No interruptions, no visitors, no television. Seido-en has been a sanctuary; a retreat. We loved the hot tub, bamboos, heated floors, spices, books and art supplies! We have reconnected to what matters most.
Tara & Angus
At Seido-en I have been reminded to tread lightly in the company of the deer and the slugs.
Seido-en has been a wonderful place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and the most restful place we’ve ever stayed. Paradise.
Ada & Ralph
The comfort of a down duvet, the limitlessness of the universe viewed from the hot tub at night and in the background, red cedar and Douglas Fir that have been here for centuries.
Seido-en Japanese Forest House is exquisite. We loved each moment, finding new details of delight and feeling the tranquility and ambience of nature around us — always.
Shan & Rick
It’s like coming home. Seido-en gives our souls the spiritual nourishment they desperately need. It is never enough time. We never want to leave.
Walt & Diane
Seido-en is everything one could wish for — exquisite, harmonious, serene, exciting and much more.
