"Our month stay here at Yellow Point just flew by. Great location for a Canadian winter vacation retreat, quiet, spectacular sun rises and views of the Coastal Mountains in the distance. Enough activity on the water to keep you interested from all the birds to the occasional fishing boat or log boom being towed to the local saw mill. In the first 5 minutes of our arrival while standing on the deck admiring the view I was greeted by a humming bird at the feeder. I had to pinch myself as we had just left -30 in Northern Ontario and here we were, February 1 standing outside on the deck in shirtsleeves saying hello to the humming bird!!
Lots to see and do in the area, great hiking, beach walking places to eat. Your close enough to all the shopping or restaurants you would require in Nanaimo or Ladysmith but have the ability to escape it all quickly to the serenity of Yellow Point. Angela has thought of everything you need to make your stay enjoyable beyond the obvious, location views etc. The condo is well appointed, has all the dishes, cooking utensils you would ever require to be self sufficient and the most important factor very clean and comfortable. Thank you for all your help and the great stay Ang."

"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."

"As soon as my husband and I arrived we felt right at home. Sheila, Dave and their dog Jack are extremely friendly and helped us to find interesting places to shop and visit. We stayed for the month of February and we couldn't believe how quickly the time passed. We had family come and visit and usually when you pull out a hide a bed it takes up most of the room, that's not the case here, the living room area is very spacious and has plenty of area to stretch out with two full size couches and a love seat. The backyard looks like something out of Better Homes and Gardens and the views of the ocean and mainland mountains are amazing. Definitely recommend staying here and look forward to returning."

"I highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a no-hassle, comfortable, short or long term rental. Karin had been very accomodating and helpful in every single way. The house is very well maintained and everything you need is there. The lakefront view can't be beat either, and close to all amenities. Thanks for making our transition into this city so easy for us!"
