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 Departure Bay
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Amazing rental and views
Our stay at this home was a great part of our trip to Canada.
Camille is a very kind and helpful host.
The house has all the facilities you need to enjoy and relax. The kayaks and hot tub added extra treats to the holiday.
The house is situated in an ideal spot to travel around Vancouver island.
This house and host comes very highly recommended.
Beautiful waterfront stay
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time while staying at Camille's. The suite is nicely decorated, bright and comfortable. The hot tub looking out onto the water was probably our favourite part. The location, very convenient for those taking the ferry or harbour plane. Far enough away from the town for peace and quiet but not so far that we couldn't walk to the store (about 25 minutes). Camille was friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!
The perfect place take a family or just for 2 people to recharge and relax. 3 teenage girls loved being able to kayak and live in a hot tub jucuzzie. Close to everything yet secluded.
This place made our week in Nanaimo a perfect respite.
Beautiful location, clean house and lovely host. Couldn't ask for more.

Fantastic place to be
We had a wonderful time on Vancouver Island and couldn't have a nicer place to stay with our kids. We really enjoyed the ocean view from every room in the house. We loved observing the seals and the otters from the couch. We came all the way from Europe and we are planning to come back.
