Irise’s House

  • I've traveled extensively around the world and "Irise's House" is one of my favourites. Privacy for all guests is completely respected, something that is very important to me. Yet when you wanted to chat, you could easily find other guests or Iris to have great conversations with.  There were special and unique gestures found at Irise's House that you don't see much of these days. Such as the bowl filled with loose change in case a guest needed money/coin, endless types of teas and treats for guests, daily handwritten notes with offers of rides to the ferries or the airport (during my stay, Iris was offering a free ride to the airport if any guests needed transport), to personalized "artwork" that titled certain items (see photos), which I later found out were thoughtfully done by her young daughter! 

    Pets are also allowed and loved by this family and as an animal lover, knowing that warms my heart!  :-)

    It was my pleasure to get to know Iris a bit during my stay and this genuine and hardworking mother is full of GRACE and shines with a such a BEAUTY WITHIN. Iris spoke of her family often with much love and devotion. And this, my fellow travelers, is what makes "Irise's House" DIFFERENT than her competition. She has such strong and positive family values that she passes on and shares with her guests, making us feel as though we are part of her family.

    Thank you for a wonderful stay, Iris. I’ll be back for sure!

  • I stayed here with my boyfriend for a nice summer escape. I’m so glad that I found this place. Definitely a gem in the neighbourhood.
    The place is easy to find and near commercial area. But what’s more convenient is that they offer an amazing breakfast coming on this cute little blue tray! I couldn’t say enough thanks about that. Totally sweet and warm.
    The backyard is so relaxing. And if you’re a smoker like my boyfriend, you don’t need to go out and find the spot. They kindly allow smoking in the lovely yard. That is such a bonus.
    I would definitely come again and recommend this place to friends.

  • It’s a nice B&B from a Chinese family. You feel like stay as friend in their home. There is shared Bathroom. You get your own key so you can come anytime. WiFi everywhere. Breakfast. Printer. Not far to the ferry or to USA Border. Nearby also nice shopping mall and big outdoor shops. The surrounding is private neighbourhood any houses. I came there by rental car but it seems there is also a good public Bus going there . They are helpful if you have any question. I just came from airport to there and it was easy to find with google maps. Enough parking space.

  • Great hospitality and very comfortable and clean environment! The food was delicious, the sleep was excellent and Irise and her family were all so kind! We'll be coming back definitely!
