                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: I am an active 71 years young man who was born in England during the second world war. I grew up and was educated in England. At age 22 i emigrated to Australia. I had a wonderful time there and took a diploma course in pest management. I left Australia in 1969 and returned to England because of a death in the family. I stayed there for 6 years and worked for a large pharmaceutical company as an advisory fieldsman in agriculture. I loved the job but i still had the wanderlust and felt the need to seek what i thought would be greener pastures. In 1976, i emigrated to Canada with my family. My wife and two kids. In 1986 we took canadian citizenship and we have been here ever since. A total of 37 years. We love Canada and in particular B.C and in particular again, Vancouver Island. Over the years , i have built a pest control company in the Kamloops area which i ran and operated for almost 10 years and then sold it in 1986. I moved from Kamloops to the lower mainland where i worked for two horticultural supply companies up to the year of 2000 a.d I then took an early retirement, bought a motor home and went traveling for four years. Finally i decided to opt for a quieter life , hung up my hiking boots and left the city traffic behind, found a nice house in a great location with an ocean view and here i am.

                      Why Nanaimo:
                      I bought this property for the location which overlooks Departure Bay and over the straits of Georgia to Vancouvers north shore.mountains I can watch the ferries comming in to Nanaimo from Vancouver. I can watch beautiful summer sunrises as the sun comes up (blood red sometimes.) from behind the north shore mountains and i also get great views of the full moon as well. The Cilaire suburb is probably the nicest suburb in Nanaimo with large lots and all the services are underground. I'm surrounded by mountains, lakes and of course the pacific ocean. There are numerous islands to explore and tons of things to do like boating, hiking, climbing, golf, horse riding and swimming. Nanaimo also has loads of shopping areas, a theatre, museum , a casino, large parks and several movie theatre's, Its great living in this tourist paradise.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      A great climate, close to the ferries, easy to get around, (not fighting traffic the whole time.) Centrally located on the island for touring. Several major sporting centres like Bowen park, Beban park and a large new swimming complex and skating centre. There is also a convention centre and a cruise ship terminal.
