  • Great place for families with loads of activities for the kids.

    "A well appointed condo. It was perfect for a family of 4. I think 6 might be tight. We had the two parents in a bedroom and the kids in the main living room (one on sofa bed and other on a cot). The condo was clean and very up to date. Having the large patio area was great and added to the living space. Being on the ground floor is key. The complex had loads for the kids to do... indoor pool, tennis, golf, ping pong, volleyball, soccer, beach with slide, etc. We had a boat which was a bonus. However within hours of arriving our kids were offered a ski on another families boat. The community of people ar very friendly. There were lots of kids around to play with (young and old). The adults often meet for appies and drinks and we were invited. They even do a mini boot camp some mornings. So if you like a place filled with lots to do and friendly people around this is your place. Russ was very easy to deal with. We even left a very precious ring and he managed to track it down and keep it safe for us at his home."

  • Karen

    "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!"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful stay.

    "We just had a wonderful week at Shady Shores, sunshine every day but one ,the fish ( pink salmon) jumping right in front of the resort , waves of them , my husband got a licence and caught his quoter each day, I loved the view from our two bed unit while I was cooking and eating breakfast dinner,we had fires on the beach in the evening , hot tub and kayaking. Free wi fi .The pub up the road was interesting , this is a great location for visits to Quailcum beach, mount Washington and further north . We enjoyed our chats with Carolyn ,she was most helpful and accommodating and humerus , the units aren't huge , but most suitable , we wouldn't have any qualms staying there in the near future, Carolyn, we never did have that glass of wine , next time ok! Cecilia+Almost Englishman Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple"
