MOOR YOUR BOAT IN FRONT OF THIS NEW 2 BDRM SUITE W. HOT TUB, PETS & KIDS WELCOME

Nanaimo Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Relax In The Yoga/Art/Dance Studio, Send The Kids Out To Jump On The Trampoline

Imagine waking up to the reflection of the sunrise on the ocean. Watch the eagles, heron, kingfishers, ducks even humming birds from this bird watchers paradise. Stay awhile and you are sure to see deer wandering down the beach, otters and seals playing in the ocean.

Enjoy this luxurious 2 bedroom suite designed and decorated to reflect the awesome nature of the surroundings.

The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances include a gas range and of course a dishwasher.

There is also a gas BBQ on the deck and an outdoor wood stove available for summer crab feasts.

The master bedroom includes a queen sized bed, electric fireplace, spacious closet and sitting area with an amazing ocean view.

The second bedroom has two twin beds, with pull-out daybeds. Again, the vaulted ceilings and big windows frame a lovely water view.

The living room is comfortable with leather couches, a flatscreen TV, DVD player and another fireplace.

The yoga/art/dance studio has a separate entrance, mirrored walls, yoga and tumbling mats. It is a peaceful space to stretch, meditate, dance or draw. (please bring your own art supplies)

The hot tub is located at the far end of the house and has a 180 degree infinity ocean view. A lovely spot for either the sunrise or the sunset.

You'll find the trampoline past the fish pond, set in the forest. It is a favourite spot for kids, use at your own risk, but it does have a safety net.

Located just 10 minutes from the Departure Bay and SeaAir terminals, we are as little as a 1/2 hour from Vancouver. Perfect for a rejuvenating weekend away from the busy city.

I traded in a banking career in busy Vancouver to live by the ocean and love life every day. After renovating and designing this property, we converted the west wing into a luxury ocean front suite.

Lucky for you! Come and be transformed by a week of pristine west coast beauty.

Camille Gignac purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

This is a unique south facing property with a virtually private beach. Honestly, we see more deer than people wandering the beach in any given week.

The sheltered cove creates a warm, calm bay perfect for swimming, kayaking or mooring your boat off shore.

It is a true island experience, without having to drive for hours, or take another ferry. Nanaimo is the second largest city on Vancouver Island and offers delightful entertainment, culinary and adventure options.

We are located only 10 minute from the Departure Bay ferry and SeaAir terminals, so your travel time is minimized. Yet we are far enough from the public beach to give you a true sense of peace and nature.

For those sailors who need a weekend on land, what better place to moor and stay.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL STAY ON VANCOUVER ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
This is an absolutely awesome place to stay. We have three kids aged 9, 15 and 18 and all the kids had an amazing time crab fishing, fishing, swimming, kayaking, rowing, photography and also eating out in Nanaimo which is really near. The suite is beautiful and has everything you might need, including equipment for enjoying the water - the property is right on the shore. The view from the suite is completely breathtaking. You could rent it for a month and just sit and watch the view - and the otters, bald eagles, seals, herons and kingfishers coming by the suite! The owners, who live nearby, are really helpful and hospitable. We had a rental car and explored the area - good shopping, yard sales, eating out (especially Japanese), wildlife spotting and enjoying the scenery. Our family travel a lot worldwide and rent property at every place we stay and this has to be the best we have ever stayed at. It just has it all.

Owner's Response: Hi Justin,
it was a pleasure to see you and your family experience everything we had to offer, including the trampoline, the paddle board, the rowboat, the kayaks, the hot tub even building fires in the outside wood stove after all what is a Canadian summer vacation without s'mores.
Please thank Bailey for the beautiful pictures he took from the property, especially the birds. I have printed several to canvas, as I think they will be perfect wall art.
We would love to see you all, if Nanaimo is ever again your destination.
til then Cheers
Camille

Great place to stay in Nanaimo!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Nanaimo at this house. It has a beautiful view overlooking the ocean, and because the water is inside a bay, the water tended to be calm. Camille was gracious and allowed us the use of her kayaks which we took to the nearby islands filled with seals! She also had a fantastic hot tub which was a nice treat after a long day.

The house itself was immaculate and everything was newly renovated. We especially loved the rainshower. She had all the amenities of home, including high quality cookwear and comfortable duvets.

The only minor thing we noted was a few spiders on the first night, which had likely crept in from the open windows. These were killed and we didn't have any troubles afterwards. I know that Camille thoroughly checked the place again after we had left and didn't find anymore!

I must say it was a great stay and we would have no hesitation returning! Camille is the perfect host!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. You came at the perfect time to see the seals and their pups sunning on the rocks. It was such a calm day even your mother in law was out in a kayak. What a great experience.
If you are ever in Nanaimo again, you are most welcome.

fantastic place, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5
My husband and my friend's husband borrowed the owner's access to go crabbing last weekend. Unfortunately their inflatable boat was hit by the rock and they both fell off to the ocean. James, Camille's husband, rescued them from the small island. On the second day, we have to go back to try the luck because my friend's husband' s glasses fell down to the water as well. James was so patient and helpful. He found the glasses for my friend after hard searching. All I can say is this is a wonderful place with fantastic views. And most importantly, James and Camille are so nice. They are willing to help people! Thanks again, James and Camille!

Owner's Response: Hi Sunny,
I must admit, I was astonished that David found his glasses. Usually items lost in the Pacific are gone. Having said that, it was a good day for a treasure hunt.
We consider living here by the ocean a gift, it is the reason we built a holiday getaway. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the exciting nature and kind culture of Canada.
We hope you will come back or send friends, at least come for the crabs, these days they seem to race for the traps.
thank you
Camille

Wonderful spa like retreat for our stay-cation.

  • 5 of 5
An amazing blend of 5 star amenities with local charm and helpful owners.

The rooms are beautiful and comfortable The fluffy towels and organic soaps where appreciated after the relaxing spa, sipping wine, and starring at the harbor.

Perfect for romantic getaways. Also perfect for family fun weekends with access to the beach and non motorized water gear.

Being all on one level accessible for all ages.

Doesn't require a car as it is a very short cab right from the ferry.

Camille, it was a wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable weekend. We will be back! Soon!

Thanks

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your relaxing weekend. The yoga room is perfect for those storm watching days. Next time take the kayaks out, or just read in the hammock, you choose, either way we would love to see you again.
Thank you

Excellent getaway

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 day in Feb,and we absolute enjoyed our stay. The condo has absolute spotless view of the ocean, and it is quiet and private, The kitchen is fully equipped as if it is for permanent residence. The owners are really friendly as well. Overall, it is a good spot if anyone wants to have a little getaway from the city.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you and your friends enjoyed your escape from the city. It was good to see guests out kayaking and crabbing in February. I was very impressed with your catch and hope you enjoyed your lunch.
You and or your friends are welcome back anytime, sometimes last minute adventures can become your best memories.
