The Flores del Iris Gardens

Halfway between British Columbia's beautiful Butchart Gardens and Vandusen Gardens is a boutique garden set in the natural beauty of an island... and this garden is set in a small inn so you can actually stay here.

A Garden that is Yours to Discover

The Inn has many hidden treasures to discover. A secret garden behind the Inn, replete with streams and waterfalls, ponds and garden plantings to discover. As special in autumn as it is in summer.

Autumn colours, warm lazy days, quiet in the garden, the colours are rich golds and warm yellows. After the lively summer crowds, you may meet a different kind of visitor.

Our gardens stay green all winter, and some flowers may linger while fresh ones are often first to appear on the coast. Rich berries feed our equally rich bird life.


Riotous colour along the paths and iris pond, and fresh colours heralding new growth. Year round, enjoy the quiet, a massage by a waterfall, a cup of tea or glass of wine , or yoga outside your guest room. Spring comes early to Galiano Island.
  Yoga in the Glass Garden room, or on the outside lawns in summer


Our sweet rose garden brings heady scents to warm days and long evenings and lingers into the next season. Christmas roses are not unheard of in this, the mildest climate in Canada.

Or take time for yourself to just 'be'.

Here nature reigns supreme, with decks and fences built around tree limbs to leave them undisturbed. Just as you would want it.A quiet place for a cup of tea or a glass of wine.

And the best way to connect with nature... a relaxing massage in the Cedar Garden Cottage.
