Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: This is our family cottage that we have owned for more than 10 years now. It is in a wonderful area with beautiful views, steps from the beach with fabulous neighbors.

Why the Owner Chose Nanaimo H, BC, Canada:
We bought this house so that we could all enjoy it together. The four grandchildren enjoy playing in the sand and looking for crabs & starfish. Sitting out on the deck and beach together as a family is where memories are made! The location of our cabin won us over as it is near the center of Vancouver Island's east coast so it allows us to enjoy all that the island has to offer. We are 45 minutes to the chair lifts at Mount Washington, there is great fresh and salt water fishing, lots of wildlife, kayaking, hiking, caving, whale watching, birding & diving to name a few. Not to mention the numerous golf courses, mini golf, bumper boats, Spas, aquariums and plenty of local wineries, galleries, studios and farmers markets! So much to do and yet our cabin is a great spot to go for a relaxing walk on the beach, gather around the fire pits or hang out with friends on the deck!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love watching the eagles from our deck, the cruise ships passing by and sitting at the fire pits. Library, art gallery, grocery store, liquor store & coffee shop are all close by. This house sleeps 8 comfortably.
