About The Owner

Born and raised in the Vancouver area we have gone to Vancouver Island for many years for great getaway holidays. We currently live in Vancouver and hope to retire to the Island.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2012

Why The Owner chose Vancouver Island

We have always loved Vancouver Island and the Nanaimo area. It is so close to Vancouver it is easy for us to 'get away' to. This great location is so close to everything and a bonus is that it is on the waterfront!

What makes this apartment unique

The accessibility to downtown and the views of Nanaimo Harbour, and proximity of Newcastle and Protection Islands are a huge benefit. The ability to walk from ferry or float plane to the apartment make it a great spot to come to even without a vehicle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came from the other side of the globe and had a wonderful stay for a few days.

The condo is very nice, we felt very comfortable!

Great Harbour View

  • 4 of 5

My husband, me and our teenage son stayed here for 17 days to visit family. We throughly enjoyed our stay. Beautifully decorated! Awesome view of the harbour, watch the boats or float planes coming in and out, we also saw the snowbirds perform from the balcony. Dining and sitting area was perfect for family meals, visiting and playing games. Having access to hot tub and lower sun deck was an added bonus. Many evenings were spent winding down in the hot tub after a busy day. Owners were quick and helpful to any questions we had. So much better than a hotel!

Great Harbour View Condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated, well stocked, two level condo. Perfect location by the Naniamo Yacht Club and a short walk to the Harbour Front and Downtown along the Queen Elizabeth II Pomenade. Lots of action seen right from the deck, with watercraft passing, float planes landing and taking off, ferries maneuvering to their destinations. Playpark for kids a short walk away.

This is one of those adages, where you can't tell a book from its cover. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but WOW the inside is spectacular.

The owners were very helpful in arranging for our stay and answering any questions we had. Thank you for letting us stay at your place!

Active waterfron location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month at this locaton. The owners are two wonderful, helpful people. They recently refurbished the unit and it is first class. Wonderful kitchen with an island (three chairs to sit at). Dining room has the best view of the harbor and all the activity. We dined there most nights (when we were not eating out) or out on the balcony if we were dining more casually. The ground floor has your garage, the hot tub (used frequently; very private - clothing optional), and the courtyard for sunbathing or dining. First floor has the two bedrooms and a bath (master has AC which we needed for several days). The second floor (top) has the best views and is the living area. I believe we were the first renters for the new owners. There were several items that were needed and we gave the list to the owners and everything arrived within 24 hours. The location is fantastic. You can watch the float planes come and go, three ferries traveling the harbor, and numerous private vessels docking or anchoring. We had cocktails on the balcony (with brand new BBQ grill) and watched the Dragon Boats practice many evenings. If the wind was from the South, we would listen to the concerts from the nearby park. Nanaimo is central to most things on the Island and we explored the wine trail, farmers markets, goats on the roof, found numerous wonderful restaurants (best was Butler at the Mansion in Qualicom). Be sure to take to foot passanger ferries to Newcastle Perserve (pinic lunch) and Protection Island (Dinghy Dock Floating Pub). You can walk into town along the waterfront to access both ferries. Plenty to do from a very convient location. All the comforts of home with new and exciting things to do. Walking, biking, kayaking and all outdoor activities are available. Who could ask for anything more!!!
