                    Marvelous location on Vancouver Island, very close to Nanaimo - Ein toller Ort auf Vancouver Island

                    Das kleinere Appartment von Natalia und Victor, das wir belegt hatten, ist gross genug für eine kleine Familie: Es ist einfach sehr schoen, es ist angenehm und vollstaendig eingerichtet, es fehlt wirklich an nichts, zudem ist alles rundum sehr sauber. Es gibt einen offenen Blick durch das riesige Wohnzimmerfenster in den wunderschoenen, grossen Garten, in dem man reichlich Platz hat, z.B. zum Ausruhen, auf dem Sofa Sitzen, in der Liege Wiegen, auch zum Spielen und z.B. auch fuer ein Badminton-Turnier. Dahinter geht es 60 (sehr) steile Meter hinunter zum Meer, das ist mehr fuer Kraxler geeignet, es gibt aber auch ein paar 100 m entfernt einen weiteren Zugang zum Meer. Im Garten kann man abends und morgens tatsaechlich Rehe (deers) sehen, die sich von Menschen nicht besonders stoeren lassen. Erstaunlicherweise gibt es auf den hohen Baeumen beim Nachbarn ein echtes Adlernest. Jenseits des Gartens liegt tief unten der Ozean und am Horizont sind Inseln und hohe Berge zu erkennen. Es ist generell sehr ruhig, denn das Haus, die Ferienwohnungen und der Garten sind dem Meer zugewandt. Die Lage des Hauses bzw. des Grundstuecks ist nahezu ideal für alle kleinen und grossen Ausfluege "in, auf und von" Vancouver Island, es sind nur ca. 1,5 km zum Einkaufen, eine gute Viertelstunde nach Nanaimo Downtown, nach Victoria sind es etwa anderthalb Stunden, und der offene Pazifik an der Westkueste von Vancouver Island mit Ucluelet, Tofino und den unfassbar schoenen Straenden ist nach Durchquerung der wilden Insel in gut 2-3 Stunden zu erreichen, alles natuerlich mit dem Auto. Das Wasser des Pazifiks ist allerdings von Natur aus sehr erfrischend. Noch groessere Touren lassen sich von Vancouver City aus unternehmen, man nimmt z.B. die Faehre von Vancouver Island nach Horseshoe Bay oder Tsawassen, auf geht es dann nach Vancouver DownTown, Richtung Norden nach Whistler oder ein bisschen weiter nach Sueden in die USA, wir haben beispielsweise das Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle besucht und sind am naechsten Tag noch weiter zum Mount St. Helens gefahren (ca. 5-6 Autostunden von Vancouver aus). Unsere Hauswirte, Natalia und Victor, sind sehr freundlich, angenehm, hilfsbereit und zugaenglich, sie wissen schlicht alles und helfen bei jeder Frage ! Auf jeden Fall eine ganz besondere Empfehlung, natuerlich das wilde und schoene Vancouver Island, vor allem aber das Haus von Natalia und Victor !

                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway.

                    What a wonderful location for a relaxing holiday! The apartment forms part of a beautiful house with a lovely garden facing the sea with views of snow-capped mountains. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need on vacation. Bald eagles can be seen circling overhead and deer visit the garden in the morning and early evening looking for food--they even came up to the door of the apartment! The beautiful photographs do not do the location justice, it is absolutely stunning there. We cannot fault the hospitality of the owners of the property who are delightful,warm and friendly and could not do enough to make our visit extra special. They both know the island very well and that knowledge was invaluable in where to go and what to see during our stay. They made our first visit to Canada an unforgettable experience -- one we would very much like to repeat !

                    Owner response: We are very happy that Trevor and Karen loved everything at our place and Vancouver Island in general. It's pleasure to have such a nice guests and share with them our love to abundant wild life combined with all modern life conveniences.

                  Just look at pictures. Most of them are taken in our own backyard, the rest - withing a short walk or drive from our house. I think these pictures say all.

Not to mention wide ocean view, with cruise ships, yachts, boats passing by, mountains with snow on their picks.
