Why Karin Parakin chose Nanaimo
Have travelled to Nanaimo for over 15 years and stayed many times on Long Lake, fell in love with the area, and have watched for property like this for many years until the right fit became available.
What makes this House unique
This home is one of a kind, surrounded by the lakeviews in every room, relaxing on the sunny boat dock during the lazy days of summer is a dream come true, there are even branches for shade to sit and lounge on the dock and read a book, or just enjoy all the beauty.

Beautiful vacation spot
Beautiful spacious home with all of the amenities needed for our family vacation. The house was immaculate and included a private dock with kayaking and swimming. Karen was very good to work with and answered all of our emails texts quickly. It was an excellent home to stay in!
We had great time staying at Karin's property. We were 7 adults and 4 kids. The weather was not co-operating, but the house was so big and full of fun things to do, that we didn't miss the sunshine. The property was extremely clean and pantry had all the basics (in case you forgot to buy something). Thank you for having us over.
This as one of the best place I stayed in.
I enjoyed everything about the house, the lake, its location and proximity to the town. It was a comfortable place and we had plenty of space for everyone. The people welcomed us with open arms. Thank you to the staff that made our holiday a success.
Thank you Denis, it was so nice having you join us. We are so glad you felt so welcomed, we like to take great pleasure in our hosting experience. Hope to see you all again on your next trip to the Island.
Nice location and clean house
The house has excellent view, very spacious, clean through out.
Kitchen was equipped with everything. View from Kitchen, dining, living and deck is beautiful. Quiet neibourhood. We used Canoe and it was a lot of fun.
Access to lake is just going down the stairs. It was great place to stay.
We enjoyed very much.
Thank you so very much. It was such a pleasure to have you all stay. Greatly appreciate what excellent guests you were too! We hope to have the pleasure to have you stay again in the future! :)
Our Zonta Trip to Nanaimo
We were a group of 5 couples. The women were coming to Nanaimo for the District 8 Zonta Seminar and brought our husbands along to play. The home was spacious with plenty of room for us all. The guys did a great job picking out great spots for dinner, after our long day in our meetings. Apparently they had a good time at the house too. What happens in Nanaimo, stays in Nanaimo. It was a wonderful adventure, made more enjoyable with such a comfortable place to stay. I would not recommend this home for anyone with disabilities due to the many stars.
Hello special Ladies,
Thank you so very much for coming and bringing your husbands. It was a great pleasure meeting you.
An extra thank you for all of your contributions through Zonta, its organizations like yours that make such a valuable contributions to our community.
Look forward to seeing you again :)
Nanaimo Biking trip
We were a group of 8 senior biking friends. The home was beautiful and spacious. It's central location was great for biking the local trails and it was just a short drive to the ferry for further adventures. We enjoyed the decks and the ability to have a refreshing dip after a hot ride. More people can be accommodated when you are there as couples rather than singles. I would suggest the reading lamps be a welcome addition in each of the bedrooms. Definitely not a place for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. Our host was most gracious and we enjoyed our time spent with her and her willingness to share local knowledge. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to spend time in the area.
Thank you so much Joan, Your group was such a fun bunch. I enjoyed meeting all of you and I am so inspired by you all. Thank you for coming and bringing your group. I look forward to seeing you again.
Thanks for the info about the added lights, great suggestion, I appreciate that.
