Lovely apartment, well-equipped with all the comforts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this wonderful, private apartment in a quiet hilltop neighbourhood with a magnificent view. Our hosts, Brenda and Monty, thought of everything.There was even some beer from their craft brewery in the fridge chilling! We had everything we needed, from towels and linens to cleaning products, shampoo and laundry detergent. When we enquired about a barbecue, Brenda and Monty kindly made sure there was one there for us. The apartment itself is spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped and we were able to cook a lot of meals there instead of fussing over where to eat every night. The beds were comfortable and my husband and I had no problems sleeping. My mother stayed in the other room and also slept very well. I can't speak highly enough about how well appointed this suite is. Brenda and Monty are lovely hosts and I hope we get more opportunities to chat with them as well. We are regular visitors to Nanaimo as we have family here, and we will definitely stay here again. This apartment was most definitely a home away from home.

Highly recommended, will definitely go back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at this place, as per a previous experience we found the house perfect in every respect, clean, bright and very well equipped.

The cottages were furnished well and comfortably and there was a great selection of pots, pans and serving dishes which made it easy to cook meals for all of us.

Monty & Brenda McKay are very nice people and available at the next door.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean comfortable place to stay. We only spent 2 nights and didn't use many of the conveniences offered but the beds were super comfortable and the place was very clean, which is always a concern for me staying away from home. (I need to find out what they use to make the sheets smell so good!) Great place, easy to find and quick simple check in/out. Will stay here again

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Roxboro Place - a spacious and tastfully furnished lower suite that was complete with everything we needed for our mid island getaway. Monty and Brenda were friendly and quick to respond to any questions we had. Highly recommended.

Quiet and clean

We stayed there from August 15 to 17. The place was clean when we came in. And it was quiet during the nights. I would recommend this place to my friends.
