About Sherrie Aftanas
I am a community health care worker. I grew up in Port Alberni on Vancouver Island. I have lived at this address for 2 years.
Sherrie Aftanas purchased this House in 2014
Why Sherrie Aftanas chose Departure Bay
I bought this property because I love gardening and the big back yard is really quite lovely. I also have a very nice view of Departure Bay from my deck and from the patio below. The dogwood tree, quince tree and forsythia bush have such beautiful blooms in the spring, from rich yellow, soft cream and beautiful fuschia. Then there is the rhododrendrum blooms, a magnificent red and pink.
What makes this House unique
I am a short 5 blocks from the beach. The city has just finished building a brand new walk way along the beach with beautiful exposed aggregate tables/seating. If you are lucky enough to be at the beach when the whales come through it is an incredible sight. There are hiking trails just a few minutes down the road and of course a beautiful 50 minute walk around Westwood Lake, as well as swimming at the lake. There are many very nice restaurants and shops within a 10 to 15 minute drive either south or north Nanaimo. We have silly boat races in the downtown harbour, as well as bathtub weekend. The Nanaimo Symphony plays during the summer at the outside pavilion. You can walk along the downtown waterfront, check out the little shops, have ice-cream or special coffee or take the little ferry to Protection Island and have supper at the Dingy Dock pub and enjoy the live entertainment. This is just a few of the many activities that can be enjoyed in Nanaimo.

Very nice unit. Lovely backyard.
Departure Bay Gem
Well appointed and and cozy spot. Lovely garden to relax in. Close to ferry, beach, and just a short walk to the bottom of the street to a coffee shop where you can view Departure Bay. Sherrie is a gracious host and we hope to return.
The basement suite was beautifully decorated and very comfortable! It was close to everything. We only stayed a few nights but it would be great for a longer stay as well.
Great location, beautiful suite, would highly recommend!
Home is well kept and suite is fully modern with all amenties you would expect. I stayed for a month while relocating and felt right at home. Sherrie was a great hostess and very accommodating. I would recommend to all visiting the Nanaimo area as a great alternative to any hotel.
Thank you, it was an absolute pleasure to have you here.
