  • Another glowing review

    "We were immediately impressed when we walked through the door. This sprawling bungalow was the perfect place to call home for a week while we visited the coast of Vancouver Island. We (a family of four) slept comfortably in the immaculately kept rooms, and had enough space to get away from each other when we needed to! Kids were well accommodated with toys and games. We were able to cook all evening meals at the house, thanks to a kitchen that is well stocked with equipment and essentials. We enjoyed the yard as well, which offered a quiet getaway after busy days exploring. I will happily return to this lovely property!"

  • Spectacular!

    "What a lovely little getaway spot! We were greeted with hugs from Char as we arrived and she made us feel at home immediately. The room is beautiful and very comfortable. We were left with an array of snacks and breaky foods for us to make our own breakfasts at our leisure which was perfect. There is even a dish fairy that washes your dirty dishes for you! What more can you ask for from a vacation? The hot tub was a special treat and we very much enjoyed sitting outside and overlooking the Saanich peninsula. The views are unbeatable even on a grey day. You'll feel like you're a million miles away from home, even if you live just down the road. We highly recommend this little spot and we certainly hope to return!"

  • AMAZING HOME IN NANAIMO, BC

    "This is our second time staying at the Hawthorne House (our first time was in 2012). We love this house, as it has everything a person could need. It truly feels like a home away from home. The house is beautiful, inside and out. It has a full patio with a gas BBQ and lovely landscaping. Inside, the house is very well stocked - ample towels and linens, fully stocked kitchen with dishes, small appliances and little extras like a fully stocked spice rack, welcoming fruit bowl and bottled water. The location is very central, and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. We based ourselves from Nanaimo and traveled to Parksville, Qualicum Beach and as far as Campbell River for day trips. We can't wait to be back to Nanaimo, and would definitely stay at Hawthorne House again."

  • Waterfront cottage Nanoose Bay

    "We stayed here for a week in August. The cottage is exactly as pictured. It is huge, and the views are stunning of the ocean, offshore islands and mountains in the distance. We were very comfortable, and used the recently renovated kitchen and BBQ to eat most of our meals in. We found it to be very clean and well maintained. The layout would be perfect for multiple couples or families with children and lots of room to spread out, both indoors and out. The local grocery store in Nanoose is only about a 10 minute drive. The Marina restaurant has closed, but lots available in Parksville 10-15 minute drive away. We enjoyed exploring a number of the local parks, beaches and trails with our dog, and unwinding. There were some neat markets and galleries in the area as well. We would definitely come back, and have recommended it to friends. We felt for the size, view and quality it was very good value. It is built on a slope as seen in the pictures, so there are a few stairs from the parking level down to the cottage, and then stairs down to the beach, so might be not suitable for all."
