The place was clean, and very well stocked with anything we could have thought of. It was quiet, and so convienient. Sheila was accommodating, and worked with our flights etc (even though our flights were a mess). We highly recommend this suite... can't wait to do this again!!😁

Great little walkout apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent hosts with a nice clean and well kept apartment that had everything we needed - kitchen, comfy table and chairs for outside relaxation with a waterfall garden, and beach towels. Location on the west end of Nanaimo is nice for heading further up Vancouver Island.

Super friendly owner Sheila. Exceptionally clean, stunning views. Sheila had everything and more anyone could ask for. The kitchen was awesome 👏�🏻�, beds comfy and a living space that was welcoming. We will definitely come back to this suite away from home.

Ocean-View Suite is the absolute best

  • 5 of 5

Another July and another glorious week at the Ocean-Veiw Suite! This is our second year here and it just doesn't get any better than this.

Not only is the suite spotless, quite as a church on Monday morning, it is the best rental unit going. BAR NONE! Did I mention the floral garden and the views? You really have to see it to believe it.

Sheila and Dave are great host and really go out of their way to make your stay in Nanaimo a memorable one. They are freindly, respectful of your privacy yet are there if you need anything.

We cannot recommend this suite enough. We feel like we have visited friends.

Already missing it.

Much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This VBRO rental, is fantastic! We stayed from Jan- Apr, and even though the weather was not so kind in Nanaimo this year, we had an awesome stay. This self contained unit was spotless, well stocked with most everything you would need, in a home away from home. The suite is very spacious, comfortable and well decorated. The owners, Sheila & Dave, are great hosts, friendly & informative. The location is great, in a residential area, built on a hillside overlooking Georgia Strait and the Coastal mountains of the mainland. The vistas are awesome, and can be viewed from the kitchen table or from your own covered deck. We certainly enjoyed watching the boats travelling by each day. The back yard, is well manicured and we quite enjoyed watching the hummingbirds flitting to and from the feeders. The area is close to many parks, as well as a shopping mall about 10 minutes away. This unit does not have laundry facilities, but there are laundromats close by. We will be more than happy to stay here again!

I came in September and stayed through until December. This is a great suite, with a wonderful deck looking onto the yard with a very pretty water feature. The view across Georgia Strait to the Coast Mountains is superb. This suite comes with everything one could need and when I arrived it was absolutely spotless. Sheila and Dave are great hosts. I can heartily recommend it.
