Nanaimo apartment description
Executive suite close to downtown next to the Nanaimo Yacht Club. This two level suite offers the ultimate in comfort for your Island vacation or business trip. Barbecue on one of two decks with lovely views of Nanaimo Harbour and Newcastle Island right from the decks off the kitchen or master bedroom levels.
Brand new gourmet kitchen, comfortable beds and beautiful views from this convenient location make this a perfect spot to explore Nanaimo and the rest of Vancouver Island.
Within walking distance to everything Nanaimo has to offer. Easy access from seaplane terminal and ferry terminal. Right on the Sea walk called Queen Elizabeth II Promenade for easy biking or walking access to everything. It is an easy ten min walk around the corner to downtown and a 5 min drive or 15 min walk in the other direction to the ferry terminal.
This exceptional location allows for hours of endless enjoyment watching boats going by. Not only is the harbor of Nanaimo a popular stop for boaters cruising the gulf islands it is also Vancouver Islands main port for shipping goods to and from the Island.
Looking out the view windows you see Newcastle Island a Provincial Marine Park. There is an hourly ferry that runs to this island where you can picnic, swim, bike or hike.
A trip on the ferry to Protection Island is not complete without a stop for a meal at the Dinghy Dock Pub. Canada's only floating pub offers great local food and live music. There is a special section for kids and they can even go fishing right through the dock!
If you like to kayak, or even if you've never tried it before, across the street there is an exceptional launch for any level of kayaker. We have two kayaks for guests to use. Kayak rentals and lessons are readily available. This area is the gateway to many scenic day trips in one of Vancouver Islands premier kayaking grounds.
Other interest spots are Wild Play Adventure Park and the many beaches, lakes and hiking, walking and biking trails in the area.

Great Harbour View Condo
Great Harbour View Condo
Beautifully decorated, well stocked, two level condo. Perfect location by the Naniamo Yacht Club and a short walk to the Harbour Front and Downtown along the Queen Elizabeth II Pomenade. Lots of action seen right from the deck, with watercraft passing, float planes landing and taking off, ferries maneuvering to their destinations. Playpark for kids a short walk away. This is one of those adages, where you can't tell a book from its cover. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but WOW the inside is spectacular. The owners were very helpful in arranging for our stay and answering any questions we had. Thank you for letting us stay at your place!

We just spent a month at this locaton. The owners are two wonderful, helpful people. They recently refurbished the unit and it is first class. Wonderful kitchen with an island (three chairs to sit at). Dining room has the best view of the harbor and all the activity. We dined there most nights (when we were not eating out) or out on the balcony if we were dining more casually. The ground floor has your garage, the hot tub (used frequently; very private - clothing optional), and the courtyard for sunbathing or dining. First floor has the two bedrooms and a bath (master has AC which we needed for several days). The second floor (top) has the best views and is the living area. I believe we were the first renters for the new owners. There were several items that were needed and we gave the list to the owners and everything arrived within 24 hours. The location is fantastic. You can watch the float planes come and go, three ferries traveling the harbor, and numerous private vessels docking or anchoring. We had cocktails on the balcony (with brand new BBQ grill) and watched the Dragon Boats practice many evenings. If the wind was from the South, we would listen to the concerts from the nearby park. Nanaimo is central to most things on the Island and we explored the wine trail, farmers markets, goats on the roof, found numerous wonderful restaurants (best was Butler at the Mansion in Qualicom). Be sure to take to foot passanger ferries to Newcastle Perserve (pinic lunch) and Protection Island (Dinghy Dock Floating Pub). You can walk into town along the waterfront to access both ferries. Plenty to do from a very convient location. All the comforts of home with new and exciting things to do. Walking, biking, kayaking and all outdoor activities are available. Who could ask for anything more!!!

About the owner: Born and raised in the Vancouver area we associate Vancouver Island with great getaway holidays. We currently live in Vancouver and hope to retire to the Island.
Why the Owner Chose Nanaimo:
We have always loved Vancouver Island and the Nanaimo area. It is so close to Vancouver it is easy for us to 'get away' for a weekend. This great location is so close to everything and a bonus is that it is on the waterfront!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The accessibility to downtown and the views of Nanaimo Harbour, and proximity of Newcastle and Protection Islands are a huge benefit. The ability to walk from ferry or float plane to the apartment make it a great spot to come from Vancouver even without a vehicle.
