  • Our Hawaii on Vancouver Island

    "Usually my husband and I winter in Hawaii but with the failed Canadian dollar, we decided to look at other options. I researched this property, communicated with Donna and rented from Jan 11 to Mar. 22. Upon arrival we were met by Donna who spent time with us explaining the complex, the area, and suggested activities in the area. This was very comforting. BUT the payoff was the condo. It is everything Donna's ad says and more. It is truly right on the water which we enjoyed. The complex is quiet, peaceful and welcoming. Because of the length of our stay,Donna checked with us periodically to see if all was well or if we needed anything. Soon we head home, but it is with appreciation of a wonderful winter and regret having to leave our Canadian Hawaii. Thanks Donna, you are a gem."

  • My piece of paradise

    "My husband and I have been coming here for almost 12 years. We absolutely love the location and the quietness. The view is so beautiful.....I love sitting on the patio and looking over the ocean at any time of day or night. Our unit is large, clean and well stocked with everything we need except the groceries. Some of our highlights over the years have been visiting Coombs market...they have goats on the roof, strolling along Qualicum Beach, just a 1/2 hours drive away...the sandy beach just goes on forever. There is a charming pizza place in Ladysmith that has a great special Tues nights and the farmer's market at the Crow and Gate Pub on Sun is a must see. The Pub also is amazing...world class British Pub on a country road miles from town. People from Victoria make the drive just to sit in the beautiful outdoor garden...and there are lots of gardens in Victoria to choose from. I could go on and on.....the swimming pool is my favorite place here....it is cantilevered over the cliff and the blue water of the pool combined with the blue of the sky and ocean is quite marvelous. Every morning I walk past the rose garden on my way to a quiet swim to start my day.....heavenly. Be sure to bring some binoculars...have not seen any whales yet, but others have...we just enjoy watching the boats go by while drinking our morning coffee on the patio. Angela looked after us for many years, now we have Patricia and Scott who have been just as great. They are available by text or email and live just down the road. Each unit is individually owned here which gives this place its charm. Make sure you have the owner;s contact information but really, it does not matter since there is always a helpful person to get a newcomer orientated. One more thing. I mentioned that we have been long time renters....and if we were younger or fully retired would buy a unit here in a heartbeat. Over the years, we have seen the property maintained and improved on...and all improvements are better than the original fixtures. There are at least 2 owners who actually live on site. That speaks volumes to the quality of this place....owners live here too. They keep the place running well, the place is quiet and family orientated and it has quality and charm. Hope you love it as much as we do."

  • The Charming Cabin is a Serene Retreat

    "I was greeted upon arrival with the Cottage lights on, and Oscar the cat welcoming me. The Cottage made me feel safe, peaceful, and surrounded by nature. Just a short drive into Nanaimo, however, Cedar offers an upscale market, a local coffee shop, and farmers market. It was the perfect getaway to relax and recharge. Nicole the owner is down to earth and respects ones privacy."

  • You won't want to leave

    "The exceptional reviews we read before arriving, all turned out to be true. This well furnished, immaculately maintained suite had everything we wanted and some nice surprises we didn't expect. We enjoyed the location in a quiet neighbourhood with an awesome view, and very good proximity to central and north Nanaimo. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, and like other reviews had mentioned, were available when you needed them but otherwise gave you complete privacy. The kitchen was so well equipped with pots, pans, mixing bowls, utensils, flatware, dinnerware, etc that we had no restrictions in preparing meals for our own guests. Sheila even provides a complete spice rack and many condiments in the fridge. We watched hummingbirds on our private deck during breakfast, a nice start to the day. We'll definitely be planning to stay here again for our next Nanaimo visit; we didn't want to leave."
