What our guests say...
Super cute little cabins right on the water. Exactly what you see in the pictures! Ashley was a phenomenal host, and the rest of the staff was super friendly and kind. The views are great, the gym is clean and up to date. The BBQ and Pool area were a total bonus. They are renovating around the cabins at this time however you don’t even notice once you’re in your little slice of heaven. The area is away from the chaos but close enough to get to really anywhere. It was so relaxing waking up and seeing deer, blue heron, geese and people on their boards in the water. Highly recommended space, we will for sure be back.
Great place with beautiful views of the Gorge Waterway right outside the front door. Immaculately clean.
Our group really enjoyed our stay at Portage West. Beautiful spot on the Victoria Gorge with daily visits from Geese, Herons and the occasional Deer. The cabins are brand new inside, and there's a pool, gym and BBQ's just a few steps away. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks to Ashley for great communication!

Thank you for accommodating us and our dog for the weekend! Beautiful place with gas station across the street and supermarket within walking distance. About 15 minute drive into Victoria.
We stayed at the Sea Creature Cottage at Portage West and we couldn’t have had a better experience. We booked at a busy time for Victoria hotels/accommodations and were lucky to find this “oasis” in the city. The cottage is located on The Gorge in Victoria/Esquimalt, giving you the opportunity to explore the nearby park and its wonderful garden. Bus stop is a ten minute walk and you are in downtown Victoria in minutes. You’re in the midst of everything, but secluded in your own little spot.
The cottage was spotless and everything brand new – almost as if we were the first to utilize the premises. Our hosts accommodated our early arrival, and while we didn’t have any issues or requests, were available to help us out. Groceries/beer/wine etc were just a 10 minute walk away to purchase.
We had a great experience – and we will definitely be back again!
Thanks for a great stay and lots of great memories.
