A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely sea resort very comfortable, with all the space for easy living. The kitchen had every item you would use for entertaining and everyday cooking. The appliance's where top of the line. The bed was very comfortable. Needed a larger shower head for better spray. The towels did the job very well in drying. The TV in the living room could have been larger for the size of room. Plenty of DVD's, games for all ages. Lovely view of the sea and the hot tub was wonderful.

The location was close to hiking trails and not far from the small towns. Our condo provided was only a phone call away if we needed any information about the condo. We would recommend this lovely place.

It has it all - great value condo for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this unit with my husband and two young children in the middle of July.

The living room and kitchen are on the top floor of the condo, along with one bedroom and one bathroom. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the spacious patio off the living room. We enjoyed spending time in the evenings on the patio. The living room is very spacious and the children had lots of room to play. There was a second bedroom and full bathroom on the level below with its own patio and ocean view. The property was clean and well maintained.

One thing we really enjoyed about this condo is that it is very well stocked with convenience items to make your stay pleasant. There were games for all ages in the closet, toys, beach towels, bath towels, a huge supply of DVDs and a DVD player in the living room and lower bedroom. Laundry soap, dishwasher soap and clean supplies were on hand. For outside use there were two kayaks, life jackets and toys for the pool. It was easy to entertain both the children and ourselves.

The resort itself is very quiet and peaceful and we felt very relaxed here. There was a large outdoor heated swimming pool and hot tub. Both were clean and well maintained with lots of lounging chairs. There was a tennis court, boche ball, play strucutres with slide and swing, and horse shoe pit for outdoor games.

We felt that this owner goes to great lengths to make you feel at home. She left some stuffed toys for the children and she was kind enough to arrange the return of Claria - our daughters precious stuffed bunny back to our home in Kelowna.

For the price during high season we felt that this unit was a great value and we will consider returning in the future.

great unit - great property

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best private vacation rentals I have found. It sits in a lovely property - incredibly well maintained with lots of amenities and overlooking the ocean with rocky beach for exploring. The view from the unit is fabulous and back and front balconies catch the sun at any time of day. It was quiet even though the resort seemed to be quite busy. The unit has been nicely updated and is really well stocked with all the basics as well as nice touches like air conditioning and even remote control candles! Everything is nicer than you would expect to find in a rental - from heavy pots and cutlery to thick towels and nice glassware. All furniture, including the beds, was comfortable and the separation between the bedrooms gave us lots of room for privacy when we wanted it. Hmmm... what else? Did I say the view is fabulous? The pool was clean and water warm.... really, we could not ask for much more. In short, the place was better than advertised!

Fabulous, tastefully appointed condo for R&R!

  • 5 of 5

After a long week travelling through the gorgeous Canadian Rockies we arrived late at Inn of the Sea Resort and let ourselves in. When we saw the space and views we knew immediately that we had chosen this condo well for our week of R&R! Everything was absolutely wonderful about this condo and even when we couldn't find the washing machine on Sunday morning Peggy was back to me within minutes telling me where it was! (I blame my sleeping daughter for hiding it in the closet in her room!). I loved the kayaks and used one every morning and evening for seeing the beautiful coastline a little bit closer. This condo is superb and we were very sorry to leave when the time came!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the condo and couldn't have picked a better spot to share time together. The view of the water is fantastic, and the sound of waves and boats going by gives you an authentic seaside feel. The fireplace inside the condo was a huge hit with my wife and I, as we spent most evenings cozied up on the couch in front of it watching films. The condo is also quite close to both Nanaimo and Ladysmith which allowed us to do some shopping and go for a couple nice dinners.

Overall, the condo was a great stay and my wife and I would very much like to visit again.

A perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation ever at the Inn of the Sea Resort on Vancouver Island, when we stayed for 2 weeks this past august.

The rental unit we booked(upper and lower levels) was spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The photos you see on the Yelland's website portray the unit perfectly. It contained everything we needed for our family of 5 (which include our daughters who are 9, 7 and 2). It was stocked with things such as tennis rackets, beach towels, Dvds, books, barbeque, toys for our toddler, games and puzzles for the family, and everything we needed to cook with. We loved the fact that we were able to do laundry right in our suite while a lot of other tenants had to use communal laundry facilities. The air conditioning unit was also a treat on the hot days.

Our family used the pool every day we were there, even the rainy days. It was a perfect temperature (heated) and although quite often busy, we were always able to get a lounge chair within minutes of arrival. We also used the tennis courts and playground frequently and we were very happy with them.

As far as location goes, it is at least 15 minutes to the city of Nanaimo, so keep that in mind if you are looking for more entertainment in a city. We originally chose this place as we wanted to travel around a bit. We loved that it was easy to get to Victoria (which we visited for a day), Nanaimo, and Ladysmith. We also headed north of Nanaimo to the Parksville area. At the end of the travel days it was nice to come back to a quiet resort. The unit is an end unit in the back and it is extremely quiet, which we loved.

Peggy and Doug were available when we needed to contact them for one issue and very approachable and easy to work with when booking.

Perfect location + perfect rental = perfect vacation!

If a simpler fare is your taste the local Crow and Gate Pub is renowned for its traditional British dishes. This is a wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate!
