Wonderful week in Nanoose Bay
We really enjoyed our stay in Nanoose Bay. The house was wonderful for our family of 4. We enjoyed being right on the water and looking for starfish. We saw bald eagles, seals, and deer daily. The hot tub looking out at the water was lovely as well.
We ventured out a bit to enjoy all of Vancouver Island. In Campbell River we went to Holly Hill Petting Farm and Elk Falls Provincial Park. We really liked Sidney, and recommend Glass Beach and Sidney Pier Bistro. We had a great time kayaking with Adventures Seas Kayaking - we saw many seals, starfish, and sea urchins. It was fun seeing the goats on the roof at Coombs Market and we highly recommend the donuts at Billy G's. We drove to Tofino for a day too. It was beautiful, but you should check the road closures before you go.
You should check out Moorecroft Regional Park both at low tide and high tide. At high tide we saw several seals close in, and at low tide you can see many shellfish.
We did have a few issues arise with the house while we were there, but Graeme and Ava did everything in their power to try to fix them. It was a very well stocked home.
Beautiful location, well appointed property.
Great place to wind down and relax.
Lovely house, amazing view!
We spent just over a week here in Nanoose Bay. The house was perfect or our family of 6 with plenty of room for us all. The beds were comfy, showers hot and kitchen very well equipped. We stocked up on supplies at Costco about 20 minutes away and used the local supermarket several times which was less then a 10 minute drive. We visited a farmer's market, Englishman River Falls, Qualicum town and beach, Parksville beach, ate a delicious lunch at Rusted Rake, did a kayak trip with Kim at Wild Heart Adventures, and whale watching with Vancouver Island Whale watch in Nanaimo...we would highly recommend all these! Husband and son played golf at Fairwinds (there is also a driving range there) and at Qualicum Beach and enjoyed both. We visited Coombs market, which is a tourist attraction, a bit tacky and odd....but worth a visit if you need something to do.
However the best thing about staying at this house is that you are right on the water! We fell asleep to the sound of waves lapping, and saw glorious sunsets. The kids were in the sea every day, even though it was cold! They snorkelled around and saw many starfish, we watched the boats, birds and saw Lucky the seal many times. The hot tub was the perfect place for a glass wine in the evening. ;) We had a few lazy afternoons where we did nothing but sit in the sun and look at the sea...it was wonderful! The house is in a secluded little cove with only 5 other houses. The neighbours are friendly and it's a peaceful, quiet location.
We would definitely recommend staying here, and if we visit the area again we would love to return to this spot!
Thanks Graeme and Ava for sharing your home with us!
Peaceful location, beautiful view
Our family has been coming to this location for over 50 years. We love the quiet beach, wildlife (eagles, whales, dolphins) and access to interesting walks, golf and islands. Graeme and Ava's home is beautiful and they have thought of everything in their well-equipped and maintained home. The kitchen area is amazing with everything available, open and airy space and view of the ocean. Thanks to Graeme and Ava for the use of their lovely home.
Anne and family
Beautiful vacation getaway
We enjoyed our stay at Nanoose Bay we thought the view was absolutely breathtaking and their home was Immaculate and lovely. it was conveniently located and we could take day trips with ease and we always looked forward to coming back and enjoying the ocean view and all of the amenities!!
The property is truly a wonderful place and a great base for seeing the island.
We had an amazing time staying here, having the ocean literally on your doorstep really makes this property special.
The location is ideal for those wanting a relaxing quiet place but that is also convenient for visiting local towns and sightseeing if you choose to.
The house is very spacious and so well supplied and maintained you will want for nothing. The kitchen had every imaginable tool, implement or gadget you could need, and with such an amazing outdoor eating area we only ate out once during our weeks stay.
This property really made our vacation, we holidayed with family we hadn’t seen for two years and it was perfect for us to relax and have family time in this home from home.
I cannot recommend this property highly enough and we were very happy with the owners prompt replies to queries and attention to detail.
We hope to visit again, it is a truly magical place!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad that you and your family had a memorable time!
