About Lisette - Reservations

We are Helen and Al, lifetime residents of Nanaimo. In fact, our family boasts the fact that we were one of the twenty-three founding families who settled way back in the 1800's. We have always enjoyed our beautiful harbor and Newcastle Island, and want to showcase everything Nanaimo has to offer from the windows of our beautiful suite.

Lisette - takes the reservations for this suite.

Lisette - Reservations purchased this condo in 2012

Immaculate, well-furnished condo

  • 4 of 5

This two-bedroom condo was in perfect condition and was beautifully furnished. The location was good being situated on the waterfront between downtown Nanaimo and Departure Bay, with two good restaurants in walking distance. The owner was very helpful and was easy to contact. The only reason we did not give 5 stars was because it took us some time to get use to the noise from the adjacent marina, the nearby sea-plane base, and the highway leading to the ferry terminal.

Great location, nice views, perfect interior

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at the end of our three week tour through B.C. and the stay was the perfect end to our trip. Nice views on the harbour and Newcastle Island. The apartment has everything you need and more. The apartment is new and very well maintained.

Clean, comfy and great view

  • 5 of 5

Al and Helen's condo was perfect for our little family! We had absolutely everything we needed, this place is fully stocked (including providing some baby items for our little guy). We also loved the view and how spotless it was. The best part about the condo was Al and Helen. They were sweet and patient with us when we missed multiple ferries and the check in time was delayed. As well, Al popped over an extension cord within minutes of us asking for help getting the (electric) bbq going. We would absolutely book here again!

Harbour side Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was great, owners were friendly and accommodating, since we had a new baby and needed to be flexible with check in and check out times. Location was perfect for the view, and close to sea wall for walking access to DT. Would and have stayed again.

• KAYAKING and FISHING: Within walking distance you will find Alberni Outpost for kayak rentals, as well as two public boat ramps. In your kayak, explore the changing erosional features of the coast, paddle into the sandstone caves known as the Malaspina Galleries on Gabriola Island; overcome with awe by those colourful sandstones. From the boat ramp, step into your boat charter, and go fishing for the day. Clean your harvest right on the dock. With your catch in hand, walk back to your residence and immediately cook your catch on the BBQ or in your gourmet kitchen.

• PICNIC, SWIM, or BIKE: You can do all these activities while enjoying the pristine views of Newcastle Island, a Provincial Marine Park with hourly ferry nearby. At low tide, watch dry land appear between Newcastle Island and the neighbouring Protection Island.

• EXPERIENCE A FLOATING PUB: Visit Protection Island, with ferry service till late in the evening. Stop for a meal at the Dinghy Dock Pub, offering great food, live music or fish right through the dock!
