A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to stay at accommodations that offer kitchen space and that allows us and our teenaged son to spread out a little. This house and its amazing views was the icing on our vacation to Nanaimo. We looked forward to our leisurely suppers on the private deck each night. The kitchen provided ample space for us to make meals as well. The location must be mentioned since we were just an hour or 2 away from everywhere we went including: Victoria, Cowachin Bay, Parksville and Comox. We will definitely be back and recommend this awesome house to friends!

A warm and entertaining home away from home really clean and striking views of the straits.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the house after dark and had absolutely no trouble following the directions.

The property was spick and span inside and out, including two types of Humming Birds and a visit from a fawn and doe. The views of the Georgia Straits were beautiful and entertaining with fishing boats and Navy maneuvers.

Jean Guy was friendly, courteous prompt and helpful. We would surely recommend this home and location.

Thanks to you my wife and I were able to see our new Grandson and go home each night to our own quiet home. We were able to have our family come and visit with us at our house and serve them a couple of home cooked meals with the use of the lovely kitchen appliances and dishes. We spilled a little bit of that meal on our, shirt and were able to wash up our clothes with the washer and dryer. We live in Ontario, Canada so you can understand how wonderful it was to welcome our family over to a meal at our vacation home..

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a positive review of Ocean View House. It sounds like you were able to take every advantage of the amenities our home has to offer. One of the things our guests always enjoy is the views of Georgia Straits and on clear days views of Vancouver as well. It is always nice to be able to have home cooked meals when away from home instead of having to eat out at restaurants. How nice it must have been for you to see your new grandson and have your family over for a meal or two. We certainly hope you will stay at Ocean View House again if you plan on returning to Nanaimo to visit your family in the future.

Fabulous views from every angle of the property

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and comfortable and had all the amenities needed. The house is attractive , but the views are unbelievable. We felt they were some of the best views we saw on our vacation on the island. It was so very nice to come back to this house after a day of activities. We spent every evening on the balcony enjoying the views and the sunsets. It was so wonderful sitting out, that we never turned on the tv. We loved the beautiful parks just 5 mins away. Jean Guy was very helpful in giving us tips on destinations close by. We really enjoyed our stay there and had a great vacation. We would definitely return. We can highly recommend this house!

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara, We are so happy that you enjoyed staying at Ocean View House and that you found it to be very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need. We are very fortunate to have such amazing views from the house and it is so nice to hear you appreciated them so much. Our guests do enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the sunset. It really is the place to sit and relax after a busy day.. We are glad you took the time to visit some of the parks in the area, most of our guests comment on Neck Point park as it is so beautiful. We certainly hope to see you back in the future.
