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.

Lovely property with a gorgeous ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

A week was not enough to enjoy all this property has to offer. Close proximity to great hiking and the view is spectacular! Owners were a delightful couple and the fact that they were dog lovers was a bonus. The suite has all the modern conveniences you could ask for and is very tastefully furnished. We would highly recommend this property and hope to be able to come back soon!

Spectacular Sunrises and Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Even driving up the steepest driveway I've ever seen didn't deter me from appreciating the beauty of this unit and the spectacular views. The photos are a little out of date as an island has been added to the kitchen but that little addition really completes the look. Wonderful kitchen which has just about anything and everything you could possibly want. Wake up to the lovely water sounds from the pond right outside your bedroom.

I found Piper Cove Park on my last morning here. I wish I'd found it sooner as it is a beautiful beach to walk and has a lovely trail taking you out to the point. I'll bet it is a perfect location for sunrise and sunset memories and/or photos.

"On Top of the World"

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on top of the world was the only way to describe this lovely property. Not only were the views, including glorious sunsets spectacular, the property was warm, inviting, and always a comfortable respite after a busy day. There were parks and pubs nearby which only added to the enjoyment of our visit. Our hosts made life easy with clear instructions and answers to our questions. A return visit is a must.

The View.....!!!

  • 5 of 5

The mountains had an hypnotic effect on us flatlanders....not that we stared at them all day.........they were always there waiting to be appreciated.

Our hosts, Michael & Leanne, were available for any problem or question that arose. We felt very comfortable in & around our well furnished stay. By the end of our stay I was able to bike up Malaspina & Laguna Way........ not bad for a flatlander. We had a Great stay!!

A fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, beautiful, well-appointed. Close to several parks.

It is up a big, steep hill so my bike gathered a lot of dust.

Cozy little place with an amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even more beautiful in reality and It's very comfortable and well appointed. If you like nature and hiking you will truly enjoy this location. There are many hiking trails in the area and the house is surrounded by lush landscaping, forest and even deers and hummingbirds. It is exactly what we needed and feel really privileged to have discovered this incredible place that offers breathtaking views from all windows. One thing is for sure... you won't be disappointed!!!

Sincerely, Lili and Alan
