The adjacent Dining Room (168 sq foot) adds to the open plan feel and with a sky light it adds to the light and airy feel. Comfortably seats 8.

With a huge makeshift table, we have had many evening diners with over 12 people. Again great for adding to your holiday memories whilst enjoying family and friends watching the sun go down.

About Gary McElroy

We live in New Zealand and bought the place from our great friends so that we could carry on a tradition of our annual summer family holiday's. I have 2 younge girls who just love exploring for crabs and shells on the beach. It's one of the best parts of their year and they have it planned months in advance.

Gary McElroy purchased this Townhome in 2009

Why Gary McElroy chose Regional District of Nanaimo

Though we were best mates whilst I lived in the UK, the family that we bought it from are very much seen as our extended family. It's a great place to build happy memories.

What makes this Townhome unique

Pacific Shores Resort is a great location for a holiday or break-away. We have one of the best units, certainly the largest, and likely the best views.

Woodgrove Sopping Mall is the opposite direction 10 minutes away. With a cinema and plenty of shops it is a nice distraction if the weather is not perfect. Some great local beaches, Rathtrevor and Qualicum are 10 and 20 minutes away respectively. As tidal beaches you can walk for ages and they are lovely and clean. Great for the family or relaxing walks. Of course you can walk out the lounge and within a minute you are on the rocks and sand of Craig's Bay. Spectacular vistas all day, but especially at dusk.
