1 Bedroom Cabin Beside An Amazing Swimming Hole On The Nanaimo River
About Mindi Pettitt
We are Dave and Mindi Pettitt, your hosts for your stay at Riverside Vacation Rental. We’ve lived in Nanaimo for the past 11 years. Back in about 2005 Mindi took Dave out on a scouting venture. “Let’s just drive around and discover something new about Nanaimo.”, she said. “I hear people like the Nanaimo River.” Here we are 10 years later, having bided our time. Waiting for the right time and place to buy our dream home on that very river. We’ve travelled around the world and even lived in Mexico for half the year, but there is no better place in the world than our very own piece of waterfront property. A perpetually renewing swimming hole, at the edge of the mountains. Previous owners of 99 River Terrace, John and Gina did an amazing job turning this into a dream property. We couldn’t ask for anything more than what they’ve created here and we are so thrilled to make this our home. At the same time, we welcome our guests to come and discover the hidden beauty of Vancouver Island.
Mindi Pettitt purchased this Cabin in 2015

Cute guesthouse/cabin just outside of Nanaimo
Stayed for three nights with my husband and our dog. We loved the property and the proximity to the river. I wish we had more time here on the island. This property made it very easy to tour the island and come home to a restful night in a very comfortable bed. It was a very clean property and we felt right at home.
My family of four and one dog could not have had a better time. The cabin was perfect and the beauty of the river is impossible to describe.
We loved the location, great place for swimming.
Could have had a bigger sign to see were it is.
Loved the quiet
Cozy and quiet
Our family enjoyed staying at the cabin, an awesome location and very peaceful.
Simple but comfortable, self-contained one-bedroom unit
- location, although part of a residential area, one feels tucked away in the woods; only 15 minutes by car away from all the amenities of Nanaimo.
- accommodations are clean, well equipped, and spacious for two persons.
- friendly and helpful hosts during our visit who, also, responded promptly to inquiries prior to arrival
Comfy fun and close to everything
Enjoyed it greatly. Though out in the woods it was close to everything. River is beautiful and fun!
We are located 15 minutes from downtown Nanaimo.
5 minutes from WildPlay
