About Karin

I have been providing tourist accommodation in Nanaimo for over 15 years. I very much enjoy assisting our clients with all their vacation needs and suggestions for wonderful tourist attractions.

Karin purchased this house in 2003

Why Karin chose Nanaimo

Lakeview was created, as I grew up in Ontario in a resort. We had 5 cottages and a guest house. My greatest pleasure is being able to share this cottage country like living with all newcomers and repeating guests alike. Living on a fresh water lake right in the middle of a city, is like a pocket of paradise.

What makes this house unique

This waterfront home has a dock, use of non motorized watercrafts including a paddleboat, canoe, kayaks. A lovely beach and large deck overlooking the lake to sit and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Home away from home”! This home suited the needs of our family perfectly. Your town is ever changing and your waterfront home very impressive. We enjoyed the accessibility by ferry to Gabriola Island, sea plane to Vancouver, and access to all the small hidden treasures along the way. Your home on the lake provided us with comfort and relaxation. I thank you for the natural and peaceful surroundings. We will highly recommend it.

Amazing place and fantastic host

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing place for anyone looking to play or relax by the lakeside. You are a stone's throw from the water which is often the perfect temperature when we visit. We have stayed at this place for the last few years in mid-July and we always look forward to our next trip. Karin is a great host who takes great care of us. Although it sounds odd for Victorians to "vacation" in Nanaimo (1.5 hours away), Long Lake is just that special. And Karin has always been there to make our stays memorable.

Stay at Long Lake, Nanaimo

  • 5 of 5
The description and photos correctly reflect the property which is located on the shore of Long Lake. I have stayed at this property twice in the fall season and found the property very cosy. The property is very well maintained both inside and out and spotless in cleanliness. The property is very well presented with quality fittings and appliances and internet access - everything that I needed for our stay. I was in contact with the owner Karin on occasions when arranging my stays and found her to be very warm, friendly and helpful. We had a hire car during both stays and the home was a great base for us to do our day trips. I could easily live in this home and location and have already recommended it to my friends. I look forward to returning again next year!

This was my second stay at this property and I look forward to there being a third time!

Excellent lakeview 2Bedrm. cozy cottage stay!

  • 5 of 5
My one month stay in this very clean, cozy cottage-type home was more than adequate for one person! The neighbourhood was very quiet and pleasant. Parking was right at the front door! -- and no safety issues to worry about. I was less than a 1000 yards from the public beach at Long Lake, as this lake is centrally located in the middle of the city of Nanaimo! Shopping was also very convenient! Great local for a stay and very private too! Thanks again Karin for this great rental! I will keep you posted for the next time!

Very comfortable space run by helpful people

  • 4 of 5
I stayed in the little bachelor suite off the driveway of this property for three months while on a work placement. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful view of the lake. Very close to library, groceries. Karin was quick to answer questions and provide assistance when needed. Probably too small for families, but a nice spot for a couple. Laundry could be a bit of a pain as the facilities are in the basement of the main house, down a short, but very steep flight of stairs. Only an issue because I was there for three months rather than a short stay. Overall, a lovely property.

This is my groups second stay at this great spot. House was just as pictured. We totally enjoy the " at the lake" feel. House is fully equipped, very clean and Karen is a great host. Excellent location, close to all amenities and on the North side of Nanamio closest to Parksville, Long Beach etc. 10 times better than a hotel. The dock and the lake are wonderful. We will be booking our 3rd stay soon.

Great place. Spent a lot of time sitting and relaxing on the deck, watching boaters, water skiers and swimmers enjoying the lake. Three bedroomed home, great for families and groups of people. Clean, tidy and fully equipped kitchen. Close to highway, supermarket and shopping malls. Will definitely go again.
