Why Lindsay White chose Nanaimo
This area is quaint and quiet, close to Vancouver Island University, the Aquatic Center, the Ice Center and surrounded by parklands. What's not to love? But if the great location isn't enough, Poet's Retreat has been designed with your comfort in mind. From walking in the door, you will notice the relaxing and soothing vibe of this suite and will love the beautiful furnishings and comfortable beds. It all adds-up to a great and memorable vacation that you'll wish didn't have to end.
What makes this House unique
You'll feel relaxed the moment you walk in the entryway. The home is comfortable, updated, immaculate. Large windows, 2 decks and views of Mount Benson keep you connected with nature while enjoying the amenities that are all available near-by.

Amazing house, great location and Lindsay was great in making sure our visit was great. Thanks so much.
After a long trip from Toronto, we came to this welcoming beautiful home with a warm personal note, Nanaimo bars, fresh flowers and comfy bathrobes. It was fully furnished with everything we needed and more! Even a beautiful view of Mt. Benson on the front balcony in a quiet neighbourhood. Could not ask for anything more. We were there for two weeks, it had all the appliance and untensils to cook (or BBQ) a full family meal. Lindsay our host was very responsive when we needed her, but I think we only had one or two questions. Everything is well organized and explained with instructions.
Definitely recommend this place and will be back!
Thanks for your kind words Rob! We are so glad you had a great trip and enjoyed your time at Poet's Retreat. We would love to have you back any time. All the best with your big move to the island!
A lovely place to stay!
This property was perfect for our needs. Very modern, super clean, well equipped kitchen and maybe most important, nice comfortable beds in a very quiet neighbourhood - no traffic or people noise after dark. Our host Lindsay was very accommodating with our check-in and check-out requests and while we did not meet her personally we knew she lived close by if we did need her. All in all, a very professional presented property that we would certainly return to in the future if we are back in the area. Thanks Lindsay,
Thanks so much Wayne! It was a pleasure having you. We'd love to welcome you back anytime.
Neighbourhood is adjacent to Buttertubs Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary. A delight for birding or for anyone who just wants a beautiful walk. Keep an eye out for the endangered western painted turtle who nests here!
Poet's Retreat is also less than a 15 minute walk to Bowen Park that has lovely forest paths, a great rhododendron garden, outdoor pool, tennis courts, beach volley ball courts, lawn bowling, and even frisbee/disk golf!
