The perfect way to enjoy the Island Lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, clean, spacious, and with views that can't be beat. An unbelievably friendly host who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. Beats any hotel by a mile. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent place with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to get away from it all. Beautiful views, great house and wonderful personal touches. Jennifer is great to deal with offering ideas and suggestions, not to mention fresh muffins, milk and eggs in the fridge. It's very child friendly, it even has some toys and baby gear that you don't have to bring! We will absolutely be back again!

Wonderful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views from the main living area and the master bedroom make this house breathtaking. And so much attention to detail made our stay memorable. The kitchen is fully stocked. There was even goodies in the fridge for breakfast (croissants, eggs, jam, bread, milk, cream, muffins) which I did not expect. They had chilled mugs, lots of ice ready to go, binoculars on table next to a bowl of fruit, and a welcome note in a bottle. Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. We were looking for a place to relax and enjoy some great meals together, and this place was perfect. Last house at the end of the road, made it very quiet even though the neighboors were having a full w/e wake, we weren't disturbed by this at all. The owners came up to make sure we weren't being bothered by the activities and ask if we required anything at all. I felt like I was staying at a friend's home. The only minor, critique is that we found the bedrooms somewhat stuffy. We had one fan which we alternated from one bedroom to the other to try and move some air. My only suggestion might be to install some nice ceiling fans in the bedrooms. Thank-you for everything!

Excellent accommodations with a personal touch

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two teenage boys (17 & 19) stayed for two nights. The home was spectacular and exceeded our expectations. The home was very clean, the beds extremely comfy and extra items such as hot tub, beach towels, chairs, kayaks binoculars, extra toiletries, fully equipped kitchen with extra spices, cold water in refrigerator all were a delight to have available. The owner was extremely knowledgable and helpful with assisting on restaurant recommendations and activities. Only wish we would have planned on staying longer! Thanks again :)

Alberta crew

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upper unit for five days in June. The views from the expansive deck and large windows are magnificent. The unit is very well equipped with everything. Lots of glasses, dishware, spices, towels, chairs etc.. Owners very pleasant and helpful.

Close to groceries, coffee and to major roads and highway. A short drive to downtown and the seawall, which has a walkway path, a beautiful walk and great for photos. Washer and dryer is not in the unit but on the lower level. Be prepared to climbs lots of stairs to the upper unit. Would highly recommend this unit, but not for seniors.

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This Beach Front House Upper Unit was fantastic. Everything we needed was available. Just walk in unpack and enjoy the beach House. This Beach House was in a great location. We wanted to be close to Nanaimo which it was.. It was clean, quite and very comfortable. I would totally recommend to anyone to book this unit. This beach house was above and beyond my expectations. The unit had lots of information on eating and sight seeing places. owners, who live in the same house (lower unit) are super friendly and helpful. so many small little somethings (binoculars were on the kitchen table when we arrived, fully equipped house, with beach chairs, lots of towels, soap and shampoo, spices in the kitchen,....)

breathtaking view of the sea, super patio with BBQ

super location, last house - no traffic, but just 5 minutes to the harbour and 10 minutes to city center; direct on the beach (Departure Bay) and nicer beaches just 5 minutes drive
