About Tammy Beach

Being from the East Coast, my husband and I love the ocean. We have always dreamed of owning an ocean front property and a couple years ago we made that dream come true. It was the best decision we have ever made. We now live in Morinville Alberta, just outside of Edmonton and we try to escape to the island with our kids as much as we can.

Tammy Beach purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tammy Beach chose Ladysmith

We discovered this property a few years ago when we were searching for a family oriented waterfront vacation rental. We found paradise, it had everything we were looking for and more.....needless to say we bought this condo and now want to share what we have found.

What makes this condo unique

Having a dock available to moore our boat is a huge advantage to us.

Our kids would say the Pool is their favorite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful Condo! We had 6 people up for a friends birthday and it was perfect. Loved the hot tub and beach fire pit. Thanks!

Incredible! Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tammy's during the May Long weekend in 2017 and it was absolutely fantastic. We were two couples with a toddler each (1.5 years and just over two). The location is beautiful and the photos truly reflect what both the condo and the Inn of the Sea look like. The toddlers had a blast exploring on the beach, collecting sea shells and stomping in puddles. They also overly enjoyed the play ground with the toys that were there. The adults enjoyed playing tennis and some of the other activities around. We spent the majority of our time exploring and walking by the beach and also checked out the nearby communities. It was beautiful sunny weather when we were there and we loved spending the day in the pool and hot tub enjoying the gorgeous view. Even if it would have rained, there would have been lots of fun things for us to do and explore. We got our dinner a couple of times from the fresh seafood market in Nelson. Everything that you could possibly need is no more than 20 mins away (shopping included as well as a wave pool in Nanaimo). We enjoyed using the community BBQ and the kitchen in the condo was equipped with all the necessities that we needed. If you stay for a while I suggest investing in a crab trap and getting a licence online. What a fun experience. The condo was clean and worked beautiful for our needs. Our favorite part was enjoying the evening view from the porch. Tammy was friendly, nice and was great at answering our questions before we booked and was always fast to respond. She truly went above and beyond, followed up with us and made our booking experience a breeze! This was the first time we've booked a vacation rental home and it was great! This may just be an annual tradition for us from now on. I highly recommend booking with Tammy. The only less than ideal point of our getaway was that it had to end.

Comfortable and fully equipped condo - with great views!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for 8 days in February and enjoyed every minute. The view of the ocean was spectacular and the hot tub was as added bonus. Great hiking trails close and the location is close to most areas and yet tucked away for total privacy.

I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quiet escape. The owners are wonderful! Very responsive and accommodating to their guests.

Enjoyable get-away preoperty

  • 5 of 5

The property met our needs for a gals get-away. Kitchen was well stocked with all the implements we needed and appliances were in good working order. The site was very quiet at this time of year, and a nice spot for walks and some beach combing. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Will plan to be back next year.
