Norma or Robert Waddell
We have been living in Nanaimo for the past 7 yrs and love all the island has to offer. We especially enjoy the wonderful moderate climate, and the wide variety of healthy outdoor activities available at our doorstep.
Having travelled extensively in Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand, we’ve always enjoyed the value and flexibility of staying in self contained suites. It's because of our enjoyable travelling experiences that set us on this path to offer this distinct, one of a kind accommodation.
Norma is a retired Operating room Registered Nurse. Robert has been a fine furniture designer & maker for nearly 40 years. His working studio & gallery is on the property so he is always available for visits from our guests. He was instrumental in organizing the popular Hammond Bay Studio Tour featuring fabulous local artists working in various mediums. A number of these talented artists exhibit in the Artful Suite, which lends to the richness of the decor.
So our intent was not only to offer a unique, comfortable surroundings for travellers but also a venue for local artists to showcase their work.
Norma has family that have resided in Nanaimo for years. We had been coming to Vancouver Island to visit for many years, and loved what the island had to offer. An unexpected opportunity arose that allowed us to move here 7 yrs ago. We have never looked back and and enjoyed every moment here.
This is a mature property, offering a lot of privacy to the home and suite that occupy it. Being a third of an acre one doesn't feel cramped on the property. We love that our location is convenient to all amenities that Nanaimo has to offer. We enjoy the location which is nestled amongst some of the very best ocean parks and land locked parks this area has to offer. We take full advantage of them. Although we have a magnificent view of the Salish Sea from our Living room. We truly enjoy the casual stroll to Piper Lagoon park to enjoy the smell of salt air, the pounding of the waves and screeches of the eagles over head.
