My wife and I spent over two months between January and March, 2015, at this condo (both suite 306/206) that is well renovated and decorated with great artificial tastes with an unforgettable ocean view. One of main reasons for us is to avoid very cold weather in Ottawa. Also, we came to this place in order to experience how a winter time in this area to see whether this area can be a future location for us to select for our retirement during winter in Canada. Although this period is a low season, we still had a wonderful time while staying there. Not only this condo and the resort (the Inn of the Sea) provided a conformable place and facilities for us to live with regular outdoor activities, but also this place provides easy access to many beautiful local attractions, parks, walking trails and nice small towns. We visited Yellow Point Lodge, Nanaimo downtown and beaches, Laysmith beaches, Chemainus, Cowichan Bay, Tofino and national parks, Ucluelet, Campbell River, Comox, Duncan, Victoria, ButChart Gardens, and etc. Our winter experience showed us that this is a best place in Canada if you want to escape cold places with heavy snows and ices. Of course, we believe that you will have different kind of wonderful time while you stay here during other seasons because the land itself is a breathtaking place with very unique beauty, weather and landscape.
