About Carolle

Hi my name is Carolle MacIntosh, I'm a Real Estate agent with 460 Realty and I love to travel. It's almost always about food tourism. Remote locations appeal to me some of the time but I simply adore being smack dab in the middle of a community; places where local people do business daily. The Historic Old City charm offers function and fun all wrapped into one package. Travel companions can branch out in their own separate directions while maintaining easy access to the holiday home base. Position me in the heart of downtown and I'm off to discover what made people want to settle there. After all this questing about, my heart is set on reviewing my discoveries over a fabulous glass of wine.

Carolle purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carolle chose Vancouver Island

There's something special about waking up in the morning and going for a walk along the seawall. The flat calm serenity transforms before your eyes into a thriving harbour front showcasing merchants tidying storefronts, fishermen and leisure boaters preparing to set out on adventures, walkers strolling the seawall and the sound of seagulls lamenting to one another. The condo is within close walking distance to the attractions and business services. Walk to the conference centre.

I always marvel at the selection of exquisite shops and services available along the historic mainstreet. Old books, nifty art work and fashions for every member of the family including the pet. There are harbour tours or boat rides to the islands for food, fun or exercise. Ever kayak on a full moon? Try this guided adventure. It's a blast. Welcome to Nanaimo

What makes this condo unique

No need to move the car for an evening out. Everything is mere steps away. 1 underground parking space, storage locker with insuite laundry.

Good service!

  • 5 of 5

We were not able to visit this Nanaimo condo as planned due to multiple flight cancellations, but Carolle provided quick responses to all of our inquiries, and dealt with our unexpected cancellation very well. If/when we do make it there, we wouldn't hesitate to book with Carolle again.

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Carolle's apartment is fantastic. Located right in the heart of the quieter downtown section of Nanaimo. Plenty of cafes and eating options in a close walking distance. The undercover car parking spot was great so I didn't have to park my rental car on the street.

The apartment itself was great. Well presented and clean with all of the things a traveller could ask for. Full cooking facilities, washing machine and dryer, ironing board etc... The bed was super comfy and the apartment was toasty warm. Good tv access through Telus with plenty of viewing options.

For the price this apartment was great and I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever back in Nanaimo. Thanks Carolle.

Everything you need in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Carolle was wonderful to deal with and the condo was done up very nicely and in a great location! Handy being on the ground floor to go in and out through the back door instead of having to go through the hallways. Underground parking was a bonus and she had everything we needed! Great location for walking everywhere in Nanaimo! Will be back!!

Charming and great location

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay at this property and once again we were greatly impressed. The condo is decorated with great charm and it is fully equipped. (Although, we did have to buy toilet paper and we were unable to find a light bulb to replace) But other than those small issues, we just love the location... steps from the quaint downtown and the ocean. We will continue to rent this quiet condo as it is already starting to feel like home.
