About Property Manager
I’m Marlies Venier. Event planner, experience artist, people-hugger. Oh, and former assistant casting director. Modeling was actually my first career, but it didn’t take long for me to find my loyalty to good food ran deeper. So, I worked my way up through the Vancouver movie industry, from talent agent to agency owner, where I found I had a knack for connecting people with just the thing they were looking for. There is nothing I love more than creating delightful, memorable experiences for others.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2002
Why Property Manager chose Nanoose Bay
After my husband, Todd, and I found and rebuilt this place, we spent seven years here, blissfully raising our three adventure-loving children, before moving to Canada’s wine country, Kelowna, British Columbia. This place was such a gift to us—one I am honored to now share with you. The family who lived on this property before mine spent fifty years here, raising their children and grandchildren, filling the walls with love, memories, resonance. Their children and their grandchildren experienced the same joy of freedom my children did. When we decided to develop this property, we wanted that sense of history to stay with the place. So, when the original home was rebuilt, a central pillar was left intact. Once the heart of their home, it has become the heart of ours. And now yours.
What makes this House unique
My favorite time of year here is summer. We spend afternoons exploring the beach.. There’s almost always a breeze. It is colorful, green and warm It feels comfortable, happy. It’s almost magical. The kids play soccer in the grass. We might make our way into town to see the artists’ studios and to visit one of the many sandy beaches nearby. Other seasons feel happy here, too. Spring is cool, sunny, full of color, naturally. You’ll spot plenty of wildlife—eagles, whales, harbor seals, sea lions. You might even get caught in the rain. Fall is warm. Green and orange leaves everywhere, impossibly beautiful. Winter sometimes brings snow. The air is cool and damp. Beautiful ocean storms come and they will take your breath away.

Amazing house! Amazing property!
The pictures don't do it justice, what an amazing place, we felt so relaxed and comfortable staying here, the ocean was so peaceful, and the house was decorated so well!
We enjoyed sitting on the patio every night listeneing to the waves and on one night the whales breaching! We will return!
Wonderful home at a beautiful place!
Since we are from Texas, we have been renting homes in August to get a break from our hot summers. This year, we were fortunate to find Love This Place. The house is very well maintained and has everything that you need to feel at home. It is such a special home, located in a very private location, but with an outstanding view and near many things to do. During our stay, we golfed at multiple courses nearby, we hiked at numerous provincial parks, we went salmon fishing, we cooked....but, mainly, we just loved spending time at the house. Many of the evenings included a nightly visit from our "dancing" seals while we were having a glass of wine on the back patio enjoying the beautiful sunsets! We are looking forward to returning soon!
Love This Place is the perfect venue for a girl's getaway weekend or a retreat (calling all yogi's, artists, book clubs, spa enthusiasts etc) get creative and make plans with those who make you happy.
