Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I emigrated to Canada 25 years ago, with my family from New Zealand. I am an avid gardener, and are enjoying developing an English Country style Garden. I have also developed a large cutting garden, and design arrangements, and bouquets for a local market, weddings, and other small events. I love living in this little piece of paradise!

Why the Owner Chose Nanoose Bay, BC, Canada:
Fell in love with the beautiful south facing property, its expansive view of the ocean and beyond, the privacy, and it's central location. It is a few short minutes to Hwy 19, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and close to many attractions in the surrounding area. A nice day trip to the West Coast, Mt Washington, and also Victoria.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Luxurious, and restful place to relax and enjoy, And the benefit of having walk on water, ocean front property right outside front gate, fun to watch the ebb and flow of the tides across the shallow sands of the estuary, enjoy the water birds, as well as eagles in their perching tree, or nest nearby. Explore the estuary at low tide, and discover several types of shellfish, including oysters, and clams. The water is calm, which creates a restful place, and makes for easy paddling in a kayak, or canoe when exploring the bay, you are welcome to use B&B kayaks. I Built the home in 2011, and moved in early 2012, and have recently developed the Guest wing, into a B&B.
