About Lisette and/or Gwen Reservations
We are both professionals in our 40s (Pete is now 50!!) who have increasingly enjoyed the comforts of life. Lisette is originally from Saskatchewan, lived in Alberta for several years and has lived in BC since 1998. Peter is originally from England but has lived in BC for the majority of his life. We hope that we have created a suite that is comfortable, relaxing and one that you can't wait to stay in again and again. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Thank-you in advance for considering our suite. Peter and Lisette
Lisette and/or Gwen Reservations purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Lisette and/or Gwen Reservations chose Nanaimo
We purchased this property brand new which is now 6 years old. We bought this suite because it is a corner unit and the largest unit in the complex (besides the above penthouse suite). The views are spectacular. Ocean views are nice but ocean with marina views are nicer. We are located on active channel so it is always entertaining to watch the boats & the kayakers come and go.
What makes this Condo unique
The real selling points for us were the gorgeous views from the balcony and its central location within Nanaimo. Nanaimo’s downtown is only a 2-3 minute drive (within walking distance), where you can enjoy numerous opportunities for dining, shopping and entertainment. There are 3 restaurants with stumbling distance (b/w 600-800 meters). The Nanaimo general hospital is less than 3 kms away. Enjoy the downtown or take advantage of the many activities; kayaking, swimming, hiking, beach combing, boating, fishing, wild life viewing, wine tasting, etc., that Nanaimo has to offer. The world famous Newcastle Island is right across the water. You can take a short (4 minute) ferry from downtown Nanaimo to Newcastle or grab a bite at the Dingy Dock Pub - Canada's only floating pub located on Protection Island.

Great condo in a great location
Beautiful condo with exceptional views. Walking distance to the docks near Newcastle and to town.
Very satisfied with stay.
We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the property. It was close enough to downtown, but in a quiet part of the bay. The patio was excellent.
The property was very clean, there wasn't anything we needed or felt was missing. Very comfy for four adults with two separate baths.
Check-in and out was very easy! Would stay again if the opportunity came up.
We enjoyed our 3 night stay in this beautiful condo recently to our trip to Vancouver Island. Lisette is very friendly and very easy to work with. She will reply to every email on a timely manner. The condo is exactly like the pictures. Very clean and fully stocked with all we needed. Its also in a very quiet location. We did drives to Englishman falls and Cathedral groves from the condo. It is about 45min. to and 1 hour drive but the drive is easy form the condo. I would stay at this place again without any hesitation.
This is a real gem!!!
This condo was perfect for us, very stylish, immaculate condition and very clean. The owners Listte and Peter obviously take great care to make everything as comfortable and easy as possible. And thank you Gwen (Peters mother and also the owner of the next door condo) for meeting us and helping us get settled. We rented this Condo last year for six weeks and liked it so much we came back again this year for two months. We love the area and its proximity to downtown Nanaimo and the Seawall on one side and the restaurants and activity of Departure Bay on the other. The floor to ceiling windows and glass doors give a stunning view of the ocean, boatyard and marine below. I particularly enjoy the view and comfort of the wraparound deck that gives an even more expansive view of the Nanaimo harbour. This is a very convenient condo for those that are in a wheelchair or have trouble with stairs as it has an elevator from the secure parking garage to the fourth floor condo. This is a beautiful area to go for a walk, we often walked down to the Seawall and checked on the "catch" of the hobby fishermen and also the fishboats at the various marinas. We would definitely recommend this very upscale condo to couples or families visiting Nanaimo, they'll love it, we did.
Everything was great !
Everything related to this condo rental experience was great.
Lisette was easy to deal with to finalize the reservation, all details for arrival, being met and and getting acquainted with the unit were simple and well taken care of, the unit itself is terrific with all one's needs met, including an extensive array of cooking essentials. Weather was not great ( worse snow storm in 12 years) so couldn't enjoy the balcony or the nearby walks, but unit is very well located and easy access to everything in central Nanaimo.
We've had many VRBO experiences and this was among the best.
Highly recommend it.
Like home !
Very clean and well appointed condo. Well stocked kitchen. Super view of the marina. Nicely situated to hop on the harbour walkway into the centre of town (walking or running). Lisette is very attentive and helpful. Would return.
