About Michael & Leanne Wood

I am a retired Air Canada Captain, my wife is a retired piano teacher, we LOVE living in Nanaimo with its slower pace, access to beautiful trails, beaches, and, of course, the spectacular views that are soo good for the soul!

Michael & Leanne Wood purchased this house in 2006

Why Michael & Leanne Wood chose Vancouver Island

Our property is part of a very private, 3 home parcel of land on about 2.5 acres, surrounded by acres of forest, with some of the nicest views available, all really good reasons to buy! We are also only 5 - 6 minutes from major shopping including Costco, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, etc.

What makes this house unique

The best part of our property is the space between us and our neighbors, which is possible with 2.5 acres shared with only 3 other homes; we enjoy the privacy and the unobstructed views.

Excellent Stay in Nanaimo

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this amazing suit on the Nanaimo harbour. The accommodation is modern and with everything you could ever need for a fantastic holiday. The patio is a perfect place to BBQ, views are absolutely stunning.

Thanks Michael and Leanne for a great vacation and such a beautiful townhouse.

3 excellent weeks in May

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to rent the lower suit on top of the mountain for 3 weeks in May. What a view.

The rooms were clean and the property very well maintained. Actually better than advertised.

We relaxed in front of the outside gas fireplace and took long walks to the shore of Neck Point Park and Pipers Lagoon and many more hiking trails.

A very pleasant experience for the weary traveller which we can only recommend.

We plan to come back in the future for a longer stay.

Thanks so much

Wonderful one-bedroom suite, close to amenities, gorgeous view.

  • 5 of 5

This very clean, very well maintained suite is perfectly outfitted with everything you need for an extended stay, and is large enough for two people to share comfortably. The location is beautiful, with wonderful walking trails in the Linley Valley accessible just down the road (Burma Road entrance). You are also close to Costco, and a couple of very good restaurants (Nori and Hilltop Bistro). Michael and Leanne have thought of every detail - from the large-screen TV, to the instant hot water, to the Weber BBQ, wireless printer and the infra-red patio list just a few. The view across the Georgia Strait is spectacular, and you will see rainbows and bald eagles on a regular basis (at least in March!).

Cute place!

  • 5 of 5

Pros - Beautiful view, lovely space with all conveniences, heated patio to barbecue, Owner is wonderful with great customer service, central location for Island day trips, close to mall, costco, theatre, parks etc.

Cons - Uphill - hard for bikes, tenant noise above (walking, scraping chair - nothing serious but it's there), lack of sunny place to just sit outside.

I would definitely recommend! We stayed a month, best part is looking at the ocean from your window and the owner is fantastic. Thank you!

Lovely apartment with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

An immaculate apartment as pretty, clean, and well-furnished as the on-line photos and descriptions. The owners live over-head. They were attentive without being obtrusive; lovely people. Two nice forested parks, each with a pond and hiking trails within a block of the house. Great location for exploring the island, but you will want a car. Two ocean-side parks within 5-minutes by car; watch the seal plays! We would return in a heartbeat.
