You won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

The exceptional reviews we read before arriving, all turned out to be true. This well furnished, immaculately maintained suite had everything we wanted and some nice surprises we didn't expect. We enjoyed the location in a quiet neighbourhood with an awesome view, and very good proximity to central and north Nanaimo. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, and like other reviews had mentioned, were available when you needed them but otherwise gave you complete privacy. The kitchen was so well equipped with pots, pans, mixing bowls, utensils, flatware, dinnerware, etc that we had no restrictions in preparing meals for our own guests. Sheila even provides a complete spice rack and many condiments in the fridge. We watched hummingbirds on our private deck during breakfast, a nice start to the day. We'll definitely be planning to stay here again for our next Nanaimo visit; we didn't want to leave.

Very comfortable, well equipped and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Suite was excellent, large, warm and very clean with an exceptional view of the back yard and ocean. We were there for one week and were delighted with seeing humming birds when we arrived on April 1st and every day on our stay. We spent a marvellous week hiking and visiting relatives and friends in the area. We highly recommend this well furnished unit.

Comfortable , Quiet, and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for almost 6 weeks while we looked for a home to purchase. The suite met all our needs and the view of the ocean each morning was a pleasant extra.

Comfortable, Roomy and Well Equipped Suite

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are retired, we stayed here for two weeks to enable us to visit family in Nanaimo, everything we needed was provided, even down to the salt and pepper and olive oil for cooking!

Everything worked, we had our own private balcony with a lovely view and BBQ, the suite occupied a fully self contained floor of the house with lounge kitchen/diner and bedroom, there was even two folding deck chairs to take down the nearby beach.

We had our own parking space and there were stairs down to the suite, but they were easy to negotiate and we were delighted to see the hummingbird visit the feeder hanging just outside the kitchen window every morning and evening.

Sheila was very helpful and even stayed up late for our arrival at midnight from the ferry. She provided us with fruit from the garden and washed the towels whenever we asked.

We can thoroughly recommend this suite for a quiet, comfortable and relaxing stay, we will definitely stay here again.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got married and this was a great choice for our honeymoon. The location is great, close to beaches, hikes and shops. Sheila had a great system for the unit; it was really well organized. It really felt more like a home then a hotel room which was great at the end of a long day. We really enjoyed watching humming birds in the garden and beautiful sunsets from the deck. We will defiantly make it a top choice for a future vacation spot. Thank you Sheila!
