FABULOUS 4 BR HOME IN PRIME LOCATION

Nanaimo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Hawthorne House is bright with an open floor plan with a large great room and kitchen with eating area, four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a separate laundry room all on one level. It has a King Master bedroom with ensuite, Queen, Double and Single bedrooms.

This tastefully furnished main level has everything you will need for a home away from home holiday. The well equipped kitchen with granite countertops has all appliances including a microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, and panini sandwich maker. The great room has a gas fireplace, big screen TV with cable and DVD player. French doors open onto a lovely sunny patio. The spacious spa like master bath has a separate shower and huge tub and double sinks. Comfortable furnishings and an ample supply of towels and linens make this home an enjoyable retreat.

The nice bright patio has a natural gas barbeque and outdoor furniture for relaxing and enjoying the evening sun and mountain views. The kids can play on the grass in your private fenced backyard.

Hawthorne House is nicely situated in a quiet new neighborhood close to downtown Nanaimo and Nanaimo Parkway Highway for easy access up and down the island. This is a great location to use as a base to explore what Vancouver Island has to offer. It is close to Vancouver Island University, Parks, Nanaimo Aquatic and Ice Centre, Trans Canada and Parkway Trail for walking/biking/jogging.

The Hawthorne neighborhood is a block away from the Buttertubs Marsh Conservation area and bird sanctuary with an easy trail system. The trail system has an entrance right across the street at Hawthorne Park. It is ideal for cyclists and joggers or even a leisurely stroll.

Hawthorne Park is midpoint in the trail system heading in all four directions of the compass. It leads to Colliery Dam and Chase River Estuary Park to the south, Nanaimo Lakes, Morell Sanctuary and Westwood Lake swimming beach to the west (nice spot - it is a short drive too) Parkway Trail to Brannen and Green Lake to the North, and Bowen Park with it's petting zoo and the Harbourfront Walkway with Swy-a-Lana Lagoon Park in downtown Nanaimo and Beach Estates Park to the West. Take a day and explore each way.

Make sure to check out the Wild Play Park at Nanaimo Lakes including aerial adventure courses, bungy jump, king swing and zip lines. For waterskiing and wakeboarding Brannen Lake is the local hotspot but we also enjoy Long Lake. Tide pools and thousands of baby crabs at the ocean lagoon steps at Swy-a-Lana Park are worth exploring. A short drive to almost any lake or beach will have lots of trails to enjoy a leisurely stroll.

We fell in love with this charming well built new home in a great new neighbourhood close to VIU. It is a great location to live while attending University. We are outdoor enthusiasts and we enjoy walking, hiking and biking. We also enjoy boating on the local lakes, skiing at Mt. Washington and surfing in Tofino. We love the location close to everything and the fabulous trail system. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do and our other renters have.

Gordon or Margaret purchased this house in 2008

We chose this very central location in Nanaimo because it was close to everything in a safe and quiet new neighbourhood. In the summer season it becomes a home away from home for visitors wanting to explore what Vancouver Island has to offer from a comfortably furnished home with lovely private outdoor space.

It is easy to get anywhere in Nanaimo or explore Vancouver Island from here because it is close to the Nanaimo Parkway and a five minute drive from downtown. This home is very close to walking and biking trails that lead in four directions to many of the attractions in Nanaimo. It has more comforts and ammenities that most rentals because it is owner occupied for most of the year. The well equipped kitchen and big screen TV are features of this bright and open home with lovely patio and yard.

Fantastic visit!

This house is beautiful on the inside and out. We were greeted with a beautiful home, very well-maintained yards and anything you could need on the inside. The house was so welcoming...a fruit basket and bottled water waiting for us, luxurious beds and linens, a soaker tub with candles. The colors and decor are very modern...the place is like a show home!
We enjoyed our stay tremendously, going to Goats on the Roof (Coombs), the sand sculptures (Parksville), Victoria Harbour and the Sooke potholes. With a big kitchen we were able to cook supper for family and have a nice visit in the backyard! My only wish is that we had a few more days to just relax and enjoy the house, as well as the parks surrounding it.

We enjoyed our stay at Hawthorne House. It was well stocked and very comfortable. We were very lucky to have a wonderful week of warm sunny weather and enjoyed sitting in the back yard on the patio. Family from NorthEast Saskatchewan

This home is exceptional! Pleanty of space, beautifully finished (as described) and a fantastic yard for the kids to play and for the adults to relaxing. Superb location, great parks nearby and easy acess to downtown. Very quiet.
We had everything we needed and the owners were available if we needed, so glad that we found this gem. Highly recommended for families as we had 4 adults and 2 kids with no shortage of space!
Thanks for some great memories.

2nd DREAM VACATION WITH OUR 4 GRANDDAUGHTERS

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
We have stayed at many homes around the world listed with VRBO and while all have been lovely, this is by far the best equipped home ever. The home is actually more beautiful than the pictures and gives you a feeling of "home away from home" from the time you enter thru the front door. Two of our little ladies were 6 years old and the other two were 9. They loved the big screen TV, movies, games, comfy furniture, having their own bedrooms & bath, etc. Every room in the house was fully equipped with anything we could ever need.
They especially loved the Aquatic Centre which is only a few blocks away. We spent part of 3 days enjoying the indoor pool, water slides, lazy river and wave pool. A visit to Protection Island, the only floating restaurant in North America, was very enjoyable. Great food but the service left much to be desired. The girls enjoyed the boat trip and fishing from the end of the restaurant.
Thanks so much for helping create wonderful memories to last a lifetime. We will certainly recommend your home to all of our family and friends.
