Both bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows as well, so you are always enjoying nature inside and out when you are inside this beautiful vacation suite....Your home away from home while visiting Vancouver island! For our guests we have a deep sea dock, an outdoor firepit, heated pool and jacuzzi, We have 3 BBQ stations to use and many different patios and places to sit at including the pool, the herb garden or near the beach. Picnic on the beach anyone or marshmallow roasts at the firepit by the beach??? Take your chairs and sit on the dock watching the sun or moon rise ~ it is pretty fabulous!

Our surroundings: Sea breezes, Sun filled days by the Pool, and Sandstone Nature walks. What could be more perfect for you, your family, your friends and true loves? Our amenities include a deep sea dock to dock your boat, with 2 mooring buoys for bigger boats.Crabbing and fishing is also a favorite pastime from the dock. You can have a fire on the beach in the evening, a favorite for kids wanting to roast marshmallows. We have tennis courts, a doggy park, a kids play area and laundry facilities behind the parking lot area.

Shopping and Our Area: Good Restaurants and Pubs are 10 minutes away. The Mahle House for gourmet, and the Crow and Gate for english style fare. In town check out Asteras Greek Taverna, Delicados for lunch, the Lighthouse Bistro or Dingydock Pub all great menus and fun places to be.

Trails are abounding very near by in Yellow Point park, Roberts Memorial, or in Nanaimo proper there is Westwood lake, the beautiful Sea Wall walk in down town, and hiking trails throughout Mt. Benson. Check out the link!

Golf is a year round sport in Central Vancouver Island and we feature all ranges of clubs. Cottonwood and Eaglequest are nearby, and Nanaimo and Nanoose are two other favorites.

Shopping for groceries is 10 minutes away in Cedar, or farther afield in Ladysmith and Nanaimo. For big box items Nanaimo, Duncan and Victoria are where to go.

Things to do : Boating, Kayaking or Canoeing are the very best in summer months.

Garden Tours are a wonderful thing to do if you are a garden lover. The famous Butchart Garden is a splendor to see, and locally we have fabulous tours in Yellowpoint.

Farm Markets: Cedar Farm Market on Sundays is just down the road, Nanaimo has Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings, Saltspring on Saturdays is a must see, and Duncan on Saturdays is year round! All relatively close by

McNab's Corn peaches and cream just down the road has fresh corn available to purchase right at their farm, and the maze is open in the early fall.

Parksville Sand Sculptures: Wow, this is a spectacular event and a must see if you come in July

Wine tasting and tours are a fun way to check out local flavors in our Cowichan Valley. Some of the best wines are made locally.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
The condo we rented for 10 days was beyond our expectations and the property was gorgeous! The booking process was easy and everything we were promised they delivered on. My wife used the pool often and it was sparkling clean which she really appreciated. The property is very well kept and very tidy. The units were fairly soundproof but you could definitely smell the bacon frying every morning (which my son really liked). We took our little dog and he loved the property and we loved the fact that we could have him with us on our holiday. There is a park near the entrance to walk your pet or let them do their business which was great. He wanted to play with the little black rabbits that inhabit the place and which you can approach quite close to...unless... you're an excited little dog! This is truly a family place to stay and we had a wonderful time. It was so peaceful and never seemed crowded that it almost seemed like our own place at times. The condo looked exactly as it is represented on the internet site. The property caretakers were very pleasant and very helpful when we had any questions. Every guest I saw there seemed really happy with their units and I heard of no complaints from anyone. The dock was nice and my son fished off it regularly. The only thing that would have been nice to see was a fish gutting station or trough on the dock as some people who brought in fish they caught in their boats cleaned them on the end or side of the dock which made a mess for others even though they rinsed it down. I have no problem recommending the Inn of the Sea condos at all and hopefully will be back.

Owner's Response: Than you for your review. I am really glad you had a good stay and that everything was an accurate account of what you were told... and the best part was that it exceeded your expectations...that is great. We try our best to make sure your home away from home is a great experience.

We will certainly take into consideration the fish cleaning trough for future. It has been something we have talked about and will hopefully implement as more and more fisher folks come here for their holidays and discover they can go fishing both from the dock and farther afield....although we do not rent boats, they are available for rent in Nanaimo or Ladysmith or you can trailer your own boat and launch not too far away, then dock it at our dock while you are staying with us.

Hopefully you will come back, and recommend our property for future guests.

Thanks again,
Rosalind McKenzie and Blue Moon Condos.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to spend the winter! We left blistery cold Manitoba for a four-month retreat to Inn at the Seas. What a beautiful spot - so peaceful and serene during the tourist off-season. The hiking trails are endless within minutes of the resort and the view from the condo is amazing - particularly the sunrise over the water and the resident bald eagles. The condo itself is lovely and has everything you could ask for. Although the pool was obviously closed for the winter, we took full advantage of the hot tub on a regular basis. We would highly recommend you stay at this lovely home-away-from-home!

The Perfect Condo Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our little family had never been to Vancouver Island before, and this condo was the perfect base from which to discover Parksville, Victoria, and every beautiful little village in-between. The layout was perfect for our 12 year old son, who after a full day of being with his parents, wanted a little privacy, and quite frankly this worked out perfectly for us all! He took the downstairs bedroom with the private full bathroom, while we enjoyed the spacious upstairs with the huge comfy living area and the wonderful kitchen and dining area. The beds were all SO comfy, and the pillows were amazing...not something I would normally remark on, but they were that lovely.
All in all the decor, the cleanliness and the books and cards available made our stay very comfortable. Getting up in the morning and seeing that gorgeous ocean right in front of us was breathtaking. We all loved the pool, the hot tub, the dock ( where my hubby loved to jump) and the tennis court. Thanks so much for letting us borrow your little piece of paradise Rosalind, it was a fantastic week!

Owner's Response: Hey Kelley,I am so glad your family came to stay, and please come back anytime. You are most welcome!I am really happy to hear that my beds are comfy, and my pillows are 'pillowy' and the suite provided your family with the in suite amenities and room necessary to add to your comfort. This is the kind of feedback we need to hear about so we can make our Blue Moon Condos the most comfortable for our guests.I really agree we are situated in an area so that our guests can enjoy our outdoor amenities and use the place as a home base to easily explore the many places Vancouver Island has to offer, like Parkssville, Victoria and Tofino for day trips. I am happy to hear that you did some exploring and dicovered sweet little treats while here.All the best, and thankyou for this wonderful review.

Bluemoon Condos

We had a great time at Ros's lovely condo. The location is fabulous, the view is amazingly beautiful and the pool was a nice bonus. We were thrilled to watch sea otters in the ocean as we sat in the hot tub, and the rocky beach is great for exploring.
The condo is warm, welcoming and creatively decorated. I was very happy with the well appointed kitchen and the lovely linens and bedding supplied.
Ros was wonderfully accommodating when we asked to stay longer the day before we were due to leave.
We hated to leave and hope to go back. Highly recommended.

Relaxing paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Blue Moon Condos gave us a fantastic weekend away in Paradise! The weather was beautiful so we were lucky to have a relaxing afternoon by the pool. There is no better feeling then lounging on a pool lounge chair by the pool and looking over your feet to the breathtaking ocean view. The suite had everything! We brought stuff to BBQ, and everything we could think of for use in the kitchen was there. You can also take advantage of the tennis amenities, walking along the waterfront, bonfire on the beach. Overall 10 out of 10!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. It is really nice when people take the time to notice the things they enjoy while staying at Blue Moon Condos, Inn of the Sea Resort. We changed out our pool surround from bricks to glass so the view would be splendid, and sure enough it is!

I try very hard to make sure the Blue Moon Condo is well supplied with everything that anyone would need so that my guests feel cared for, and this confirms my efforts I am really happy you had such a good time, and I hope you come back soon!

Thanks again,
Roz McKenzie

We had a wonderful stay at the condo. There were seven people in all, all adults and yet we did not feel that there was not enough room. The sunrises in the mornings were spectacular. The laundry facilities were emmaculate and very inexpensive. The pool and jacuzzi were well used. We enjoyed walks on the beach, collecting seashells. The condo complex was very quiet with a tennis court and playground area for children.
I would recommend this area to all I know. We even had a call from the owner as we had not called her on arrival as it was late. She was very easy to contact and the condo was exactly as described on the e-mail. Thank you so much Rosalind for the wonderful accomodations it was a vacation that we will not soon forget.
