About Sharon Cusack

I grew up in Alberta and moved to fabulous Vancouver Island 17 years ago and have never looked back. I love this Island and all the adventures it has to offer. It's beautiful, friendly and absolutely gorgeous with so much to do and see!

Sharon Cusack purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sharon Cusack chose Vancouver Island

The downtown core of Nanaimo has so much to offer, it's walking distance to waterfront, shopping, restaurants and ferries to Gabriola, Protection/Newcastle Islands. Lovely places to explore and enjoy beaches at. The suite is clean new and has everything to call your home away from home. I enjoy staying in vacation rentals by owner and wanted to offer guests to Vancouver Island the same.

Great apartment in an excellent location.

Lovely apartment in very central location. Apartment was very clean with all we required for our time there. The location meant we could walk everywhere in town. Highly recommended.

Amazing Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the condo. Everything we needed was provided....and I cook in. The condo was clean and the furnishings were high quality. We loved the fact that we were in walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, a shopping mall with grocery store and even the waterfront. The patio table and chairs was a great spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, even dinner. We are from Texas and have been on Vancouver Island many times but never stopped in Nanaimo. What a treasure it is, and to find such great lodging makes us want to hurry back. Thank you, Sharon. We hope to see you again next year.

Clean and Modern

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Sharon's condo, easy access with a nice patio to enjoy. Her condo was very clean, modern updates and comfortable for us. Unfortunate that we didn't have more free time to walk around the area as it's an easy walk to the Harbour. Anytime we are back in Nanaimo we will be booking again with Sharon.

Great neighbourhood and condo

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a great area for walking, close to cool restaurants and shops and only a couple of blocks to the waterfront. The condo was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The big, deep soaking tub was a really nice treat after a long day of hiking. Yes, the bed was a little hard but Sharon had provided extra quilts and blankets so we just put one under the sheets for padding and it was really comfortable after that. The main floor rear entrance was very convenient for bringing in our luggage and groceries and the underground parking was convenient. We rent from VRBO often and this was, by far, the easiest and most hassle free experience that we have ever had. No cleaning fee, no damage deposit, no long list of rules other than be courteous and respect your neighbors. We made the payment online, texted her when we arrived in Nanaimo and she met us there to give us the keys. We had a wonderful stay there and when we were ready to leave we packed up the car and left the keys as per her instructions. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Great fit in the heart of Harbor City

  • 4 of 5

Sharon's condo was a perfect fit for us. It has basically everything you need to make it your home away from home.

Kitchen has enough utensils to pull off a good meal.

It was great to have the 2nd bedroom/den. Even had a 2nd little TV in there.

The condo has a stacking washing and dryer which came in very handy. That was nice.

Their is loads of room in the open concept living area to entertain.

Both master bedroom and bathroom had amply space - large soaker tub if your a tuber.

There is an outside ground level patio to sit back with an afternoon cocktail.

We chose it because we were able to bring our dog's with us.

Unfortunately I found both the beds uncomfortable hence did not get good night sleeps.

The condo is right in the city, in a quiet complex. You can walk to everything - make sure to check out Old City Quarter, head down to the Harbor to take in the activity that goes on there - stop in for some Fish and Chips.

Thanks Sharon for your hospitality - it was great to get to know you.
