Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We love travelling. It is our family's passion. We continue to travel extensively and when we're not, we live vicariously through the stories of fellow travelers. We settled in Nanaimo in 1996 and have owned and operated the neighbouring Buccaneer Inn in Nanaimo since. In 2013 we purchased the home next to our motel and completely renovated and rejuvenated The Chart House. It's a great little place! We love living in, and sharing our passion of, Nanaimo, Vancouver Island and the places we've travelled to. We've been involved in tourism industry in Nanaimo for many years and have a large pool of knowledge about travelling around and enjoying Vancouver Island. We're happy to help and look forward to the conversation! Enjoy the fruits of our travels and our professional hotel experience in the comfort of your vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Nanaimo:
We coveted owning this home since the day we purchased The Buccaneer Inn. It's central location in Nanaimo and the fact that it is next to our motel meant it was the best property for us to offer to vacation renters and those looking for a roomier extended stay option.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
We really loved the central location of this home in Nanaimo. It's a great spot to base yourself to tour Nanaimo and Vancouver Island. Also a good location if you need to stay for a hospital visit, dealing with a house insurance claim or visiting your kids at Vancouver Island University. We loved the character of the house. Coved ceilings. Loads of windows that give it a bright, warm feeling. Like the private yard that lets one enjoy a warm, sunny spot to read, BBQ or sunbathe. We enjoy the views of Newcastle Channel, Newcastle Island and the 3 palm trees next door at our motel. Gives us the feeling we're on an Island with a nice, mild climate! Though we bought this home and renovated it with the intention of offering it to others, we would gladly live here!
