About Tammy Beach

Being from the East Coast, my husband and I love the ocean. We have always dreamed of owning an ocean front property and a couple years ago we made that dream come true. It was the best decision we have ever made. We try to escape to the island with our kids as much as we can.

Tammy Beach purchased this condo in 2017

Why Tammy Beach chose Nanaimo

We discovered this property a few years ago when we were searching for a family oriented waterfront vacation rental. We found paradise, it had everything we were looking for and to say we bought this condo and now want to share what we have found.

What makes this condo unique

Having a dock available to moore our boat is a huge advantage to us.

Our kids would say the Pool is their favorite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Tammy, we had a wonderful stay. Your condo met our every need. We loved Lady Smith. Had never been there before. The weather turned out superb-sunny and in the 20's the whole time, and we saw a lot of things we had not seen before. We ended our stay by going to Butchard Gardens, before heading to the airport, (just missed the ferry by 3 cars – the trips only bummer) which is always a real delight. Hope this finds you well. Thanks again for a great stay at your lovely condo. Connor and Susan

Fabulous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful, newly renovated, very clean and comfortable, it had everything we needed. I like the fact that it was ground level, easy to bring in our luggage and groceries. A bonus was on the very hot summer days our condo was nice and cool, as the cedar trees provided lots of shade. It was also nice to be able to see the ocean right from our living room. The grounds are immaculate and having a pool and hot tub right on the ocean to relax around was wonderful.

We also loved sitting on the patio taking in the ocean view and watching the hummingbirds and bunnies play.

Tammy was a joy to deal with she was very responsive and made it very easy for us to book our vacation.

We would definitely recommend this condo to other travelers and we for sure will be back again next summer.

Beautiful, secluded waterfront condo with nice amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Inn of the Sea and had a great time. We appreciated the comforts of the well maintained condo and grounds, the walks by the ocean in the evening. My son loved the pool and the badminton net. Its close proximity to the highway made it easy to sightsee the coast. We would definitely stay here again next time we come to the island and recommend others to stay here too!

Very Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for four nights. Our kids really enjoyed the beautiful scenery, the campfire near the pool and exploring the beach at night. The owner was very accommodating and the accommodations were easy to access and room. There is a more than adequate grocery store nearby. The kitchen had everything we needed and the couches were comfy. The rest of the property was tranquil which is what we were looking for to decompress. Would highly recommend for those looking to catch up on some reading near the water.

Beautifully appointed condo - fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

This condo is quite large for a one bedroom. The kitchen and living areas are newly appointed and really nice. The owner is very attentive, accommodating and helpful with all inquiries. I especially liked the fact there is a hot tub year around and a pool (although not heated during winter months). The location of Inn of the Seas is perfect. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle but also within 20 minutes of the bigger city of Nanaimo. I would recommend this resort and unit 127.
