  • Happiest Anniversary Dream Come True!

    "I searched online for several weeks to find the perfect home and location for our family to all be together in celebration of our milestone 40th Wedding Anniversary. We are a family of 6, including our toddler granddaughter. We knew from the moment that we stepped foot into Su's beautiful and immaculate house with panoramic views of Departure Bay, that we had found our idyllic home away from home for the next 10 days. Relaxing soft music was greeting us from within the house and fresh breakfast Danish was on the kitchen counter from a local bakery to welcome us. Wow! I'm not a world class traveler, but can honestly say that this is the most lovely home we have ever rented for a vacation. There is so much personal space throughout and breathtaking views from both levels. The ferry terminal is within view, so there is always a ferry or a seaplane or a kayak to see. Neighboring otters are nearby near a clear water stream and can be seen early in the morning, as are deer and seagulls and an occasional hawk. We enjoyed every deck and had such glorious weather. Most meals were eaten outside on the spacious patio with Su's beautiful ornamental grasses and the water, only footsteps away, soothing our souls! Su's kitchen and cabinets are so well stocked! Nanaimo has myriad things to do and a great assortment of shops, restaurants, farmers markets, excursions, etc. We also planned several fun day excursions away from home - a trip to Victoria, and wine touring in Cowichan Valley where we visited several small wine estates and experienced spectacular scenery along the way! Loved spending a lot of time at or near the house - walks on the beach, kayak rides, looking for shells, walks to the nearby kiddie park or splash park or take a short car ride to the top of Sugarloaf mountain nearby. Su is the absolute most gracious and hospitable hostess than you can imagine. She goes the extra mile in helping with your vacation planning and has great tips and recommendations for restaurants, excursions, shopping places, etc. She even offered to come to the house one day and take some casual family photos of us outdoors. As guests, Su made us feel like we were part of her family and that her house was our home. She even supplied a high hair, a stroller and a portacrib for our granddaughter. Many treasured memories were made here and our 10 day vacation with family was a dream come true!"

  • Nice quiet place to stay in Nanaimo

    "Perhaps unsurprisingly for the "Zen House," the furnishing is quite sparse, and yet, it seems to have everything you need. We were very happy with our stay, and would definitely stay again next time we are in the area."

  • Immaculate, well-furnished condo

    "This two-bedroom condo was in perfect condition and was beautifully furnished. The location was good being situated on the waterfront between downtown Nanaimo and Departure Bay, with two good restaurants in walking distance. The owner was very helpful and was easy to contact. The only reason we did not give 5 stars was because it took us some time to get use to the noise from the adjacent marina, the nearby sea-plane base, and the highway leading to the ferry terminal."

  • Great Harbour View

    "My husband, me and our teenage son stayed here for 17 days to visit family. We throughly enjoyed our stay. Beautifully decorated! Awesome view of the harbour, watch the boats or float planes coming in and out, we also saw the snowbirds perform from the balcony. Dining and sitting area was perfect for family meals, visiting and playing games. Having access to hot tub and lower sun deck was an added bonus. Many evenings were spent winding down in the hot tub after a busy day. Owners were quick and helpful to any questions we had. So much better than a hotel!"
