Dave Ilyn purchased this bungalow in 2013
We coveted owning this home since the day we purchased The Buccaneer Inn. It's central location in Nanaimo and the fact that it is next to our motel meant it was the best property for us to offer vacation renters and those looking for a roomier, extended stay alternative to our suites at The Buccaneer. .
We really loved the central location of this home in Nanaimo. It's a great spot to base yourself to tour Nanaimo and Vancouver Island. Also a good location if you need to stay for a hospital visit, dealing with a house insurance claim or visiting your kids at Vancouver Island University.
We loved the character of the house. Coved ceilings. Loads of windows that give it a bright, warm feeling.
Like the private yard that lets one enjoy a warm, sunny spot to read, BBQ or sunbathe.
We enjoy the views of Newcastle Channel, Newcastle Island and the 3 palm trees next door at our motel. Gives us the feeling we're on an Island with a nice, mild climate!
Though we bought this home and renovated it with the intention of offering it to others, we would gladly live here!
We stayed at the most beautiful home the Buccanner Inn has to offer.
March 8th of this year for a week. This home is gorgeous with it's view
and gourmet kitchen. Beautiful bedrooms, bathrooms and so much more. Prime rib and turkey dinners were cooked in that gourmet kitchen.
Monique and this gorgeous house made our vacation. You must book
this home. You will not be disappointed. We will always book our vacation at this home.
My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children) stayed a week at the house. Having previously stayed at their Inn, I expected and received a very clean and welcoming property. We very much appreciated that they took the time to open the windows ahead of time so that when we arrived it was cool and breezy. There's a lovely breeze and they provide several floor and ceiling fans for hot days but also throw blankets for cool evenings. This property is managed differently than other rental homes we've stayed in; in a good way. They provided mid-week cleaning and a generous starter supply of laundry soap, liquid hand soap, dish soap & detergent, coffee, etc. The BBQ is not located in the immediate fenced in yard but rather in an adjoining fenced in yard. This was ok but not as expected and we only used it once. The washer is older but cleaned our clothes well; the dryer will need replacing soon as it took a long time to dry a small load (90 mins). The décor is great. Be prepared to sort your garbage, recycling, and compost. We were a little unsure about what was garbage or recycling...hope we did it correctly! There's a lot of parks and family activities within a short drive but the hidden gem was the large playground only a few minutes walk away just up the hill behind the house. Thank you for a lovely stay, we recommend this property and their Inn and would absolutely stay again.
We found our stay to be very pleasant. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful with directions and tourist information. The house is spotless and very comfortable. We only had use of the backyard one day. (rain) We felt very welcome and very comfortable.
First we stayed 4 of us in the three studios - very good! Then we came back for additional studio stay. We were now a party of six, two adults and four adult children. The very kind hosts had moved us to this very nice 2 Bdrm/2 Btrm. Now we could be together as the familien we are. Well equipped kitchen and spacious enough for all 6 to be seated for nice breakfasts. With our rental car it was easy to get to sightseeing on the island. We would recommend this house!
Stayed for a week with 2 adult children. House very well equipped for cooking, laundry and spacious enough for 3 of us not to kill each other! Very clean, great linens, comfy beds, private deck and yard and BBQ access. Hosts very welcoming and charming. Location good; close walk to bars, liquor store, marinas and restaurants. Owners' commitment to environmental products made me happy! We'd defiantly recommend this house and will be back...
