About the property

Beautiful 500 square foot studio apartment, close to beach.

Neck Point Place, Nanaimo, BC, Vacation Home and B&B. A lovely, self-contained suite, located in an upper-end, private residence overlooking the Georgia Strait, Pipers Lagoon and Neck Point Park, with the Sunshine Coast and the lights of Vancouver serving as the perfect backdrop.

Managed by Gary and Carole Baker, a retired couple who take great pride in their home. This immaculate, 500 square foot bachelor suite is ideal for 1-2 adults. Guests looking for quiet, comfortable, affordable accommodations to call home, while exploring Vancouver Island, will love this centrally-located gem, just a 15 minute drive from the Departure Bay ferry terminal, two hours from Victoria, three hours from Tofino, and 90 minutes from Campbell River.

A short walk through a series of meandering trails provides guests with the opportunity to spend a day picnicing seaside or exploring the Island’s east coast. Both high and low tides provide unique experiences. Spend a quiet evening enjoying some of the best natural scenery in the world, or watching the many ships that sail the Georgia Strait everyday. There is always something to see.

Neck Point Place

This studio suite has everything an island visitor could need. Appliances, spices, coffee, tea, a comfy bed, location....and the two nicest owners! Super accommodating. We would stay in this very clean and comfortable suite again!

Nanaimo retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were most welcoming and they went beyond the normal duties to make us feel welcome.

This suite offered the perfect retreat for two old friends to be self sufficient in our modern and comfortable rental. We loved our stay.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The picture shows it all. One large room with comfortable bed, sitting area, and kitchen. Everything was modern, clean, and nicely furnished. Gary and Carole Baker were extremely friendly and hospitable. They welcomed us and showed us around. Left some coffee and supplies to get us started. The backyard was beautifully landscaped and ours to enjoy; Gary told us to pick whatever tomatoes we wanted. We particularly enjoyed the Parksville-Qualicum area which was about a 40 minute drive. Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park in Parksville was a fun walk along the beach and through the trees. Bring lunch and enjoy a few hours in the area. Shady's in Qualicum Beach was a really nice restaurant on the water. We also enjoyed hiking in Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park. Coombs, in the same area, was a neat little town. They advertise "Goats on the Roof" but we were surprised by the excellent gourmet grocery store under that roof.

I stayed here for two weeks, and felt at home in this comfy, clean and welcoming suite. Garden and patio area were beautiful and very private, and Gary and Carole keep the grounds immaculate. Would highly recommend this vacation suite.

A beautiful view properly overlooking the ocean with a lovely patio for outside meals

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay with the Bakers. They are kind, engaging people with a knack for making guests feel at home. The studio suite is well appointed featuring a new kitchenette, laundry facilities available, a very comfortable bed and sitting area. There is lots to do in Nanaimo. We tried a local golf course, the aquatic centre and did lots of hikes. I would recommend this suite to anyone who needs a comfortable place to stay in Nanaimo!
