Ladysmith Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms Two bathrooms Sleeps 6 with ease

Blue Moon Oceanside Condos is one of several privately owned townhouses at Inn of the Sea Resort. It is a fully furnished 2 Bedroom 2 full Bath Penthouse Suite with breathtaking panoramic ocean views that await your arrival. Walk into the suite and view sparkling blue water dancing in sunlight as you look through floor to ceiling windows in the living room. There are 3 balconies on 2 levels, a wood burning fireplace, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and floor to ceiling windows in the dining room to provide views of Blue Heron Marine Park next door. Bedrooms have wood framed Queen beds and floor to ceiling windows to view the great outdoors, and along with the windows in the kitchen, which is equipped with stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, and Keurig coffee maker, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the view from this spacious open plan 1400 sq ft suite ~ Your home away from home on Vancouver Island. Nothing better!

Our great amenities include a Deep Sea Dock, an outdoor fire pit, heated Pool and Jacuzzi, a Kids play area, and a large tennis court. We have 3 BBQ stations and many different patios and places to sit including the pool, the herb garden, or near the beach. Picnic on the beach, go for a swim in the ocean, or take your chairs to the dock and watch the moon rise ~ It is pretty spectacular in any season! Sea breezes, Sun filled days by the Pool, and Sandstone walks. Crabbing and fishing is a favorite pastime from the dock. You can have a fire on the beach and watch the evening coming down.

Good Restaurants and Pubs are 10 minutes away. The Mahle House for gourmet, and the Crow and Gate for English style fare. In town check out Asteras Greek Taverna, Delicados for lunch, the Lighthouse Bistro or Dingy dock Pub all great menus and fun places to be.

Trails and Parks are abounding very near by. Yellow Point Park, Roberts Memorial, Cable Bay, Hemer Park. In Nanaimo there is Westwood lake, the beautiful Sea Wall walk in down town, and hiking trails throughout Mt. Benson.

Golf is a year round sport in Central Vancouver Island and we feature all ranges of clubs. Cottonwood and Eaglequest are nearby, and Nanaimo and Nanoose are two other favorites.

Shopping for groceries is 10 minutes away in Cedar, or farther afield in Ladysmith and Nanaimo. For big box items Nanaimo, Duncan and Victoria are where to go.

Boating, Kayaking or Canoeing are the very best in summer months. Garden Tours are a wonderful thing to do if you are a garden lover. The famous Butchart Garden is a splendor to see, about 1.5 hrs away and locally we have fabulous tours in Yellowpoint.

Farm Markets: Cedar Farm Market on Sundays is just down the road, Nanaimo has Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings, Saltspring on Saturdays is a must see, and Duncan on Saturdays is year round! All markets are relatively close by with McNab's Corn just down the road who has fresh corn available right at their farm, and the maze is open in the early fall.

Parksville Sand Sculptures, a spectacular event and a must see if you come in July. Wine tasting and tours are a fun way to check out local flavors in our Cowichan Valley. Some of the best wines are made locally. Whale watching in Victoria a day trip and Telegraph Cove, an overnight trip. Fishing on the Straight of Georgia, or the west coast for springs make us your base camp for it all!

About Rosalind McKenzie

Welcome to all my guests from all over the world. I am happy you have come to stay. I have traveled the world over, so I am pleased to offer a place for travelers to come to in Beautiful British Columbia. It has been a pleasure to meet so many folks from so many places, and I look forward to meeting many more of you as you find your way to Blue Moon Oceanside Condos at Inn of the Sea Resort on Vancouver Island.

Rosalind McKenzie purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Rosalind McKenzie chose Vancouver Island

I love this suite because it is a penthouse with gorgeous views of the ocean in all it's glory. The whole front of the suite has floor to ceiling windows to capture as much of this vista as possible, and being a corner suite it has a large floor to ceiling side window with views of the ocean through the trees. Standing in the kitchen, dining room or living room, you are surrounded by this incredible natural panoramic views from on high. Skylights, and vaulted ceilings give you a feeling of spacious abundance. Everywhere you look you are amidst our glorious natural beauty. The great outdoors is just off the living room where you can enjoy sitting on the patio having morning coffee, or afternoon/evening glasses of wine while you watch the moon rise. This is why staying in this suite is so incredible if I do say so myself!!

What makes this townhome unique

We are in a forest and on the ocean allowing you to feel like you are completely away from civilization, but 10 minutes down the road, you can get everything you need at Cedar Shopping Center. We have a farmer's market on Sunday in Cedar and several in Nanaimo on different days. There are 4 wonderful restaurants within 10 minutes drive, and lots of hiking and walking trails near by. Artists working from home allow visitors to come most of the year, with the Yellowpoint Christmas Craft Fair tour in November. You will find that there is much to do right here in our rural Yellowpoint area. We are centrally located so make an ideal base camp for exploration further afield, like Tofino, Victoria, the sandy beaches of Parksville and Qualicum, or further up Island. There are many Unique Benefits while roosting at Blue Moon Condos so come enjoy the Island this season.

A little piece of paradise! A place where beautiful memories were made.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time, as a family of 6, to take on a vacation this way, rather then staying in a hotel. I will be completely honest in saying I was very nervous . It reminded me of house hunting. Looking for that perfect place. I know most of you will know what I mean by this, as pictures of homes for sale look awesome, but then when you go look, it's not even close. That being said, there was absolutely no disappointment ! Bluemoon Condo, was clean, and fully ready, with all the fixings! Beds, bedding, towels, pots, pans, dishes, dishwasher, microwave, barbecue, washer and dryer available, heck, there was even a Kurig coffee pot! Score!! It felt like home❤️ We were able to comfortably fit all of us, even our sons dog was welcomed! I cooked, most the time while we were there, saving huge amounts of dollars, by being able to do this! This place is nestled, almost hidden away. The views, breathtaking, the scenery, quiet, serene. Very clean, and well maintained property by a wonderful fella by the name of Ian. A heated pool, a hot tub, the ocean, and even a campfire while looking out to the ocean and listening to the waves. I just can't say enough about this property. A short drive in either direction will take you to Ladysmith, or Nanimo! Shopping made easy! The owner of this Condo is Rosalind. Now here is a woman who went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. A friendly, smiling face, with a big beautiful laugh. Her home was your home, and she made sure of that! A herb garden waiting for you to use. Beautiful outdoor plants, as well as indoor ones to brighten your stay. Rosalind was full of know,edge about the area, ready to answer our questions! I felt like I had known her forever! I would 110% recommend this place to family, friends, and yes too even you, strangers. A place you will never forget, as it will leave imprints on your heart and in your soul.

You and your great bunch of boys are welcome anytime at Blue Moon Condos, Inn of the Sea Resort. It was a pleasure to meet y'all. I am glad you came and happy that your fishing trip was a great success, and I look forward to posting some of your pictures on my website...especially you two standing on the dock and the one with your son playing the guitar. Beautiful shots! I am glad you took a chance and hope to see you again...all the best to you! Cheers, Roz McKenzie

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo we rented for 10 days was beyond our expectations and the property was gorgeous! The booking process was easy and everything we were promised they delivered on. My wife used the pool often and it was sparkling clean which she really appreciated. The property is very well kept and very tidy. The units were fairly soundproof but you could definitely smell the bacon frying every morning (which my son really liked). We took our little dog and he loved the property and we loved the fact that we could have him with us on our holiday. There is a park near the entrance to walk your pet or let them do their business which was great. He wanted to play with the little black rabbits that inhabit the place and which you can approach quite close to...unless... you're an excited little dog! This is truly a family place to stay and we had a wonderful time. It was so peaceful and never seemed crowded that it almost seemed like our own place at times. The condo looked exactly as it is represented on the internet site. The property caretakers were very pleasant and very helpful when we had any questions. Every guest I saw there seemed really happy with their units and I heard of no complaints from anyone. The dock was nice and my son fished off it regularly. The only thing that would have been nice to see was a fish gutting station or trough on the dock as some people who brought in fish they caught in their boats cleaned them on the end or side of the dock which made a mess for others even though they rinsed it down. I have no problem recommending the Inn of the Sea condos at all and hopefully will be back.

Owner's Response: Than you for your review. I am really glad you had a good stay and that everything was an accurate account of what you were told... and the best part was that it exceeded your expectations...that is great. We try our best to make sure your home away from home is a great experience. We will certainly take into consideration the fish cleaning trough for future. It has been something we have talked about and will hopefully implement as more and more fisher folks come here for their holidays and discover they can go fishing both from the dock and farther afield....although we do not rent boats, they are available for rent in Nanaimo or Ladysmith or you can trailer your own boat and launch not too far away, then dock it at our dock while you are staying with us. Hopefully you will come back, and recommend our property for future guests. Thanks again, Rosalind McKenzie and Blue Moon Condos.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend the winter! We left blistery cold Manitoba for a four-month retreat to Inn at the Seas. What a beautiful spot - so peaceful and serene during the tourist off-season. The hiking trails are endless within minutes of the resort and the view from the condo is amazing - particularly the sunrise over the water and the resident bald eagles. The condo itself is lovely and has everything you could ask for. Although the pool was obviously closed for the winter, we took full advantage of the hot tub on a regular basis. We would highly recommend you stay at this lovely home-away-from-home!

The Perfect Condo Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our little family had never been to Vancouver Island before, and this condo was the perfect base from which to discover Parksville, Victoria, and every beautiful little village in-between. The layout was perfect for our 12 year old son, who after a full day of being with his parents, wanted a little privacy, and quite frankly this worked out perfectly for us all! He took the downstairs bedroom with the private full bathroom, while we enjoyed the spacious upstairs with the huge comfy living area and the wonderful kitchen and dining area. The beds were all SO comfy, and the pillows were amazing...not something I would normally remark on, but they were that lovely.

All in all the decor, the cleanliness and the books and cards available made our stay very comfortable. Getting up in the morning and seeing that gorgeous ocean right in front of us was breathtaking. We all loved the pool, the hot tub, the dock ( where my hubby loved to jump) and the tennis court. Thanks so much for letting us borrow your little piece of paradise Rosalind, it was a fantastic week!

Owner's Response: Hey Kelley,I am so glad your family came to stay, and please come back anytime. You are most welcome!I am really happy to hear that my beds are comfy, and my pillows are 'pillowy' and the suite provided your family with the in suite amenities and room necessary to add to your comfort. This is the kind of feedback we need to hear about so we can make our Blue Moon Condos the most comfortable for our guests.I really agree we are situated in an area so that our guests can enjoy our outdoor amenities and use the place as a home base to easily explore the many places Vancouver Island has to offer, like Parkssville, Victoria and Tofino for day trips. I am happy to hear that you did some exploring and dicovered sweet little treats while here.All the best, and thankyou for this wonderful review.

Bluemoon Condos

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Ros's lovely condo. The location is fabulous, the view is amazingly beautiful and the pool was a nice bonus. We were thrilled to watch sea otters in the ocean as we sat in the hot tub, and the rocky beach is great for exploring.

The condo is warm, welcoming and creatively decorated. I was very happy with the well appointed kitchen and the lovely linens and bedding supplied.

Ros was wonderfully accommodating when we asked to stay longer the day before we were due to leave.

We hated to leave and hope to go back. Highly recommended.

Relaxing paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Blue Moon Condos gave us a fantastic weekend away in Paradise! The weather was beautiful so we were lucky to have a relaxing afternoon by the pool. There is no better feeling then lounging on a pool lounge chair by the pool and looking over your feet to the breathtaking ocean view. The suite had everything! We brought stuff to BBQ, and everything we could think of for use in the kitchen was there. You can also take advantage of the tennis amenities, walking along the waterfront, bonfire on the beach. Overall 10 out of 10!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. It is really nice when people take the time to notice the things they enjoy while staying at Blue Moon Condos, Inn of the Sea Resort. We changed out our pool surround from bricks to glass so the view would be splendid, and sure enough it is! I try very hard to make sure the Blue Moon Condo is well supplied with everything that anyone would need so that my guests feel cared for, and this confirms my efforts I am really happy you had such a good time, and I hope you come back soon! Thanks again, Roz McKenzie
