Arguably Trillium’s most scenic property, Acacia Ty Mawr is nestled amidst five acres of gardens and wooded glens in the community of Shawnigan Lake.
Originally a heritage house, Acacia Ty Mawr was transformed into a 35-suite residence, revitalizing the government-subsidized home into an enviable character home. Features of the original heritage house, including wide mouldings to stained-glass windows, were conserved in an effort to preserve its beauty and charm.
Acacia is a publicly funded home; as such, its beds are reserved for those who are awaiting a bed via the Vancouver Island Health Authority.
“Thank you for taking such amazing care of my dad, my sisters and me. You made a terrible situation bearable. The thoughtful, tender care you gave our dad made us feel very comforted.”
