Stunning waterfront location, ocean views from every window.
Imagine waking up to the reflection of the sunrise on the ocean. Watch the eagles, heron, kingfishers, ducks even humming birds from this bird watchers paradise. Stay awhile and you are sure to see deer wandering down the beach, otters and seals playing in the ocean. All of this just 10 minutes from the shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants of downtown Nanaimo.
Enjoy this luxurious 2 bedroom suite designed and decorated to reflect the awesome nature of the surroundings.
The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances include a gas range and of course a dishwasher.
There is also a gas BBQ on the deck and an outdoor wood stove available for summer crab feasts.
The master bedroom includes a queen sized bed, electric fireplace, spacious closet and sitting area with an amazing ocean view.
The second bedroom has two twin beds, with pull-out daybeds. Again, the vaulted ceilings and big windows frame a lovely water view.
The living room is comfortable with leather couches, a flatscreen TV, DVD player and another fireplace.
The yoga/art/dance studio has a separate entrance, mirrored walls, yoga and tumbling mats. It is a peaceful space to stretch, meditate, dance or draw. (please bring your own art supplies)
The hot tub is located at the far end of the house and has a 180 degree infinity ocean view. A lovely spot for either the sunrise or the sunset.
You'll find the trampoline past the fish pond, set in the forest. It is a favourite spot for kids, use at your own risk, but it does have a safety net.
Located just 10 minutes from the Departure Bay and SeaAir terminals, we are as little as a 1/2 hour flight from Vancouver. Perfect for a rejuvenating weekend away from the busy city.

About Camille Gignac
I traded in a banking career in busy Vancouver to live by the ocean and love life every day. After renovating and designing this property, we converted the west wing into a luxury ocean front suite. Lucky for you! Come and be transformed by a week of pristine west coast beauty.
Camille Gignac purchased this Guest House in 2010
Why Camille Gignac chose Stephenson Point
This is a unique south facing property with a virtually private beach. Honestly, we see more deer than people wandering the beach in any given week. The sheltered cove creates a warm, calm bay perfect for swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding. It is a true island experience, without having to drive for hours, or take another ferry. Nanaimo is the second largest city on Vancouver Island and offers delightful entertainment, culinary and adventure options.
What makes this Guest House unique
We are located only 10 minute from the Departure Bay ferry and SeaAir terminals, so your travel time is minimized. Yet we are far enough from the public beach to give you a true sense of peace and nature.

Amazing property, wonderful host!
We had an awesome experience here. Gorgeous views and loved going out to kayak. Would definitely stay again!
Myself and family recently spent two nights here. We loved it. The hot tub and kayaks were great for us as well as a trampoline for the kids and video games. The location is fantastic as was the owner. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
A Private Waterfront Paradise on Departure Bay!
We could not have asked for a better vacation accommodation. The central location, the modern amenities and the beautiful property were all top notch. The photos don’t do the property justice; you have to see this place to believe it.
Every window overlooks the water and having waterfront access can’t be beat. All of the extras, the kayaks, hot tub, trampoline, hammocks, WiFi, all made it a rental we will recommend to friends and hope to visit again ourselves.
Hats off as well to our gracious host, ensuring we always had everything we needed.
The only down side was when we had to leave! Looking forward to next time, thanks for everything.
Loved every minute of our stay. It was the perfect getaway for us!
Enjoyed every minute. Great location to up or down Island. Camille was great.
Beautiful Property. Great view from anywhere, even the Hot Tub!
Lovely home in a beautiful setting!
Very friendly host. Home was clean and comfortable with a nice water view. Kayaks and hot tub made for a fun and relaxing stay.
