Very clean and cozy.

  • 3 of 5

The house was very clean and cozy. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was kid friendly which was great as we have 4 grandkids on the island and there was enough room for everyone to feel comfortable. The only issue we had was regarding the deposit refund. I would recommend staying here but be careful about the deposit.

welcoming home in a quiet neighbourhood close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home while travelling to Nanaimo for the summer games. There were 4 adults and 1 child. The home is very comfortable and welcoming. It felt like home and we were so happy we decided to rent this home rather than stay in a hotel. Almost everything we needed was supplied, a few things missing for cooking like spices, etc but nothing that we couldn't live without. We did leave some suggestions for the owner. The jacuzzi bathtub was very nice and the beds were comfortable with memory foam pillows and comfortable bedding. We enjoyed the deck and BBQ as well. It is a nice neighbourhood very close to all amenities. Also close to parks and beaches. We would stay here again.

Felt Like Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July/August. With a baby and a toddler, hotels aren't the best option for us anymore.

The home is exceptionally clean and felt like home. This home is great for babies, kids and of course adults.

THE BEDS ARE AMAZING!!! The towels are high quality. Everything was perfect. My boys loved the jacuzzi tub at the end of a long day. The BBQ & patio set were a definite plus for us as we love cooking. The home has all your basic necessities for cooking, cleaning and relaxing.

The location is great! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for an all around great place to stay. It's amazing how a nice home to go back to every evening makes your vacation that much better!!

Thanks again!! We can't wait to come back next year!!

Relaxed and in awe after a weekend in a lovely island getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rain or shine, this vacation getaway was indeed a home away from home. Gorgeous scenery from the home, walking trails and city, had our cameras going constantly. The house was bright, comfortable, private and spacious. The Zen-like spa bathroom was a retreat in itself. I can't wait until my next visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the awesome review! The house really was designed to feel like a spa experience, and we are happy you enjoyed that. We are also happy you got to enjoy the near by trails and all the area has to offer. We look forward to hosting you again in the future. All of us at Eagles Rest :)
