Hello! I am your host, Don Ohlgren!

I am a semi-retired businessman with 40+ years working in property management. My main enjoyment nowadays is welcoming guests to the various properties that I manage here in Victoria, the garden city on Canada's breathtaking west coast! 

Whether you're here for business or pleasure, short-term or long-term, I can find you the perfect place to stay!

Feel free to contact me directly at 778-700-9722 or info@bemyguestinbc.com with any specific requests or questions that you may have. I'm happy to do everything I can to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.

I look forward to hosting you!

Welcome to Victoria!

Boasting the mildest climate in Canada, Victoria is a unique blend of old-world charm and new world experiences.

In Victoria, heritage architecture, beautiful natural landscapes, and traditional afternoon tea mix with a plethora of outdoor adventure, world-class culinary experiences, and a vibrant culture & arts scene. It is green and beautiful year-round. In fact, it's rumoured that when it snows (maybe once per winter) that there is a civic bylaw that the snow must be gone by noon the next day!


You will love staying with us!

My wife (Anna Markland, best-selling author on Amazon for 5 consecutive years) and I have travelled extensively, and we know what makes a home-stay enjoyable and what visitors expect from a great host. 

Our various properties are quite diverse in features, providing many options and settings for renters. Each property has unique attributes, allowing us to cater to all preferences.

Also, if you're interested, I can switch you around between our available properties so you can get a feel of the different locales, and experience all of what Victoria has to offer.

Contact us now to book your next holiday or executive rental!

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we now use Hypo Foggers to clean our properties!

Our cleaning staff now uses Hypo Fogger machines between guest stays to totally disinfect every unit with Hydrolyte Disinfectant Solution. Hydrolyte is a sanitizer / disinfectant microbicide that is used in hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, correctional facilities, schools, etc. 

The Hypo Fogger electrostatically charges the solution when fogged into the air, thus they envelop all surfaces they come in contact with, providing a complete coverage of all surfaces and eliminating all germs and pathogens. The mist is so fine that there is no need for follow-up wiping. 

EPA Registration number for Sars-Cov-2 Human Coronavirus Disinfectant 92108-1

  • Tuberculocidal, Broad Spectrum Disinfectant.
  • Meets OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogen Standards for sanitizing.
  • This product kills 99.9% of Bacteria and Viruses in 2 Minutes.
  • Active ingredient hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is derived from naturally occurring salt minerals and water.

More info about the Hypo Foggers can be found on their website at https://hypofoggers.com/
