House, 3 Bedroomsm plus den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
I have been providing tourist accommodation in Nanaimo for over 20 years. I very much enjoy assisting our clients with all their vacation needs and suggestions for wonderful tourist attractions. My motto "Short term accommodation providing long term memories" I take great pride in going above and beyond to make your stay very memorable.
Karin purchased this House in 2003
Why Karin chose Nanaimo
Lakeview was created, as I grew up in Ontario in a resort. We had 5 cottages and a guest house. My greatest pleasure is being able to share this cottage country like living with all newcomers and repeating guests alike. Living on a fresh water lake right in the middle of a city, is like a pocket of paradise.
What makes this House unique
This waterfront home has a dock, use of non motorized watercrafts including a paddleboat, canoe, kayaks. A lovely beach and large deck overlooking the lake to sit and relax.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great space - close to loads of fun spots.
Thrilled with our accommodation for our Girls weekend away at
Lovely home with lots of room. View is terrific and home is wonderfully landscaped with nice path leading to the lake. Hostess was more than accommodating. Great experience for our Girls weekend away.
Beautiful lakeside home
Myself, my husband, our two year old son, my parents and my brother stayed here for 4 nights for a family get away. Communication with Karin was easy and clear, the home is well equipped with spices, glassware, kitchen appliances, pillows, towels... the list goes on. The view is peaceful, the beds were comfortable, the owner is friendly. I would definitely recommend this home to friends.
The only thing we had issue with is that the wifi signal is a bit weak and slow. That is the only negative thing I have to say about the experience.
Thank you Leigh, your family was our absolute pleasure to host. It was so lovely to see you all come together and spend such nice quality time together. Thanks for coming to join us all here at Lakeview! hope to see you again.
Fantastic! Karin’s attention to detail in making you welcome and comfortable is next to none.
Karin’s property was very clean and extremely accommodating. She really has thought of everything and you can see her passion for hosting in every detail from the beautiful welcome package to ensuring you have everything you need for making great family memories. Her staff is so kind and helpful and I would rent any property Karin and her team is managing as I know I can expect great quality from them.
Thank you Lynn, so nice to hear you enjoyed your time. Your family was so delightful. Thank you for choosing Lakeview to create your memories with. It is something we like to take great pride in doing. Hope to see you again next summer
Our stay at the Lakeview home was fabulous!
Our stay at the Lakeview home was absolutely fabulous. This was our first time staying in Nanaimo and we really picked a winner. The house was large enough to accommodate us as a group of 12 (6 adults and 6 kids). There was plenty of space for all to sleep and relax. There was a recreation room downstairs which was great for the kids to watch TV and play while the adults got to enjoy the upstairs.
The house itself is in a great location less than 10 minutes from the Departure Bay ferry terminal and in close proximity to all your shopping needs. It comes fully stocked with everything you could need and more. Karin really made us feel welcome and even provided us with great ideas and outings to do around town.
The best place in the house is of course the deck that overlooks Long Lake and the dock. Family breakfasts and dinners were so much more memorable because of the view. The walk down to the private dock from the lake is only a few meters and its a few minutes’ walk to the public sandy beach for swimming. The children thoroughly enjoyed using the watercraft's available and didn’t want to leave the water at all.
We are already planning our trip for next year!
Thank you so very much for your review. Greatly appreciate people taking the time to share their experiences for others to know what we do well. Truly hope to see you again on your next trip to Nanaimo and we for sure will have many more things to suggest so you can explore other areas close by. Enjoy your summer
Everything we imagined and more!
Our stay at Karin's Lakeview Home was just perfect! It was clean, well stocked, beautiful and Karin really goes out of her way to ensure the space works for the dynamics and needs of your group. I'd have to say that this is by far one of the best vacation rentals that I've ever been at. We'd absolutely return.
The setting is also perfect and it was fantastic to have access to a well-maintained and stocked dock. The lifejackets and equipment were in great shape, and you save a lot of money and time without needing to travel and rent kayaks to access the lake. The location is also very convenient for groceries and any last-minute purchases needed.
She takes a lot of pride in her properties and keeps the standard top notch!
Thank you Nancy, it was such a fun time hosting you and all your friends. Certainly enjoyed seeing how you can come together and cook such incredible food! We hope to see you again on your next trip. Have a great summer
