About TERRY & KINGSLEY LO

We are professionals, now semi-retired. Kingsley is an architect, with his wife Terry assisting in management.

We rented a condo suite in this resort for a few years and fell in love with it. So, we begged someone to sell us this waterfront unit.

It has been totally renovated to suit our taste, including artworks to reflect the waterfront theme. We welcome guests who share our enjoyment of this condo and who would treat it like their own home.

Why TERRY & KINGSLEY LO chose Ladysmith

There are many units in this resort, and only a limited few are on the waterfront row. This unit has been renovated tastefully and furnished with high quality furniture.

What makes this condo unique

You can choose to be very active on the beach, hiking, swimming, cycling, tennis etc., or just sit back in the leather rocking recliner to watch the view, with a glass of wine or coffee in your hand. Wake up to watch the dramatic sunrise from the front deck, or stroll along the waterfront to watch the romantic moon, listening to the music of the breeze at night.

So much more than we expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a dream place to stay! The view....word's can't describe.

Already planning our next trip back. Thank you Terri for all you did for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. This place is for those who love nature, (and who doesn't), and simultaneously enjoy the comfort of "civilized" convinience such as TV, internet, hot shower and fully equipped kitchen. We choose this place rather than camping in a tent for that reason. Glad you enjoy sharing our fortunate discovery.

Just amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a mini family reunion. The pool was perfect, the little playground for the 2year old to keep busy and entertained. Kayaking, swimming, and the views were breathtaking. I would highly recommend this location, and plan to come back.

relaxing, quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We only had a couple of days to be away and found this gem "Inn of the Sea" Our view looked out at the pier and gulf Islands in the distance. Perfect! The condo is clean, the property is beautiful and the people very friendly. We took our Kayaks and ventured out in the morning and swam in the pool in the afternoon. There are a couple of Pubs in the area if you don't feel like cooking and the food is good. I look forward to visiting again in the near future, great place for a weekend getaway

Best Unit in the Complex!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are familiar with Inn of the Sea as we have stayed there before in a different unit.

But Terry’s unit must be by far the best unit in the complex!

It’s truly deserving of all it’s Five star reviews. Nicely decorated with quality furnishings and was

very clean. The large living room windows, vaulted ceiling and sky lights make it nice and bright.

Her unit is in the ocean front building and has stunning views! Make sure to bring your binoculars.

The deck is partially covered with an awning, which made it nice to sit out side and enjoy the

water view even when it was raining.

When you enter the unit there is a door in front of you and a door to the left.

The door in front of you leads to the 2nd bedroom and a full bathroom. This is the bedroom that is optional to rent. It’s also the room that faces the ocean.

The door to your left leads up some stairs to the rest of the unit.

The complex is well maintained and even has resident bunnies running around not to mention all the birds, occasional seal harbours and bald eagles.

There are threes community BBQ’s located in a few different areas.

Although the pool was not heated, there is an outdoor hot tub open year round.

Being a shared internet service with the rest of the complex, we were pleased that the internet was fast enough to stream my husband’s hockey games.

Thank you Terry, we really enjoyed our time at Inn of the Sea!

We greatly appreciate that you take the time to give a such walk-through description of our condo and the general amenities. This certainly benefits the other future guests. Encouragement like yours really helps us in our continuous effort in providing a place for those searching for a comfortable home-away-from-home. Happy travelling!

Lovely location to just relax and enjoy the view

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this seaside condo where pretty much everything we needed was available to us. The sunrise and sunset views were just breathtaking and there are numerous trails/activities in the surrounding area. Would love to come back again one day!

Oceanfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the fathers day weekend at this condo (both suite 306/206) The condo is well equipped, spacious and has an unforgettable ocean view. We had a wonderful time enjoying the pool, hot tub, tennis court and we even did some crabbing off the dock. We look forward to returning!
