                  Nanoose Bay is located on a peninsula on east side of Vancouver island just north of Nanaimo and south of Parksville. Our guest house is nestled in the woods yet only a 5 min drive to the beach where there are numerous water sport activities and fishing available. The area is known for its many pristine hiking and mountain biking trails (for all levels of fitness)many that include beautiful waterfalls and ocean views.

                  The nearest large shopping complex is only 10 mins away and includes movie theatres and a wide variety of restaurants. Also within a 10 min radius is the world class Fairwinds golfing resort and marina. A 15 min drive takes you to Parksville, which boasts a number of tourist attractions for families, including Coombs marketplace. Horseback riding is only a few mins away from our guest house. Take a day trip to BC’s capitol city of Victoria which is approximately 2 hours away.

                  For those of a more adventurous spirit there is the world famous Horne Lake caves for spelunking, and bungee-jumping, zip lining and high ropes at Wild Play in Nanaimo. Nordic and alpine skiing, snow shoeing and tubing at Mount Washington is just over an hour away. Explore Long Beach and Tofino a few hours away on the west coast where Canadian surfers ride the waves!

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: Lori and Cheryl Ann are outdoor enthusiasts. Both have traveled extensively and are experienced wilderness campers. Cheryl Ann and Lori are active in paddling- outrigger, voyageur, dragon boat, sculling, canoeing, kayaking- you name it! They have been married for 9 years and love living in the Nanoose Bay area.

                  Why Nanoose Bay:
                  We have always loved the relaxed lifestyle of Vancouver Island and it was our dream to own property here. This guest house is named in honor of Al Robertson. He was a gentle Aboriginal man who honored nature. Al was an avid hiker and helped us find this location. In memory of Al, we have used 'Red Hawk' as the name for this guest house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  This property has a perfect location- a couple hundred meters away from a forest reserve- where we can hike for hours. All the lots here are 5 to 10 acres so it is very private. There is much wildlife here- especially deer who love to munch on our garden- but we don't mind. In addition, it is on dead end road so there is virtually no traffic. It feels like a very remote location- yet we are only a 14 min drive to a big shopping complex.
