Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and once again it was very enjoyable. We visit our daughter who lives in Nanaimo every year and it was wonderful to find such a lovely, comfortable home last year. That is why we came back again this year and plan to do so again in the future. The home is well equiped, clean and has magnicifent views.

We are always happy to hear that our guests feel comfortable and find the house has everything they need. We look forward to seeing you next year when you visit your daughter again. Hopefully the weather will cooperate so that once again you can enjoy the stunning views.

Great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month at Ocean View House while we were in the area house hunting. The house is in a great location, close to all amenities. Woodgrove Centre, Costco and grocery stores are a short drive away.

From the moment we stepped in the front door, we were awestruck by the amazing view. We could see from the picture windows the view across Georgia Strait and the Sunshine Coast.

The house was very clean and well appointed with modern furnishings. There was a binder in the home with suggestions for shopping, markets and sightseeing etc.The owners had an abundance of pamphlets in the den with all sorts of visitor information. Jean Guy was always available to answer any questions for us.

We loved seeing the comings and goings of the hummingbirds on the patio and the deer roaming the neighbourhood.

Great hiking and beaches close by. Check out Neck Point Park and Piper's Lagoon, both a 5 minute drive from the house.

We would recommend this home to anyone coming to the Nanaimo Area.

Owner's Response: Dear Rick and Nancy, it is great that you found Ocean View House to be in such a great location and close to all amenities while you were house hunting in the area. We are very fortunate to have such spectacular views which can be seen as soon as our guests walk through the door. For anyone wanting to make use of the many parks and trails or go shopping, Ocean View House really is a a great location to be able to take advantage of all that. The binder and pamphlets usually are a big hit with our guests to help decide what they would like to do when visiting the area. With so much to do, it helps to narrow things down a bit. For nature lovers it is also an ideal spot to see so many deer as well as the humming birds flying to and fro from trees to the feeder. We hope your move to Nanaimo goes smoothly and we wish you luck in finding your new home.

Lovely quiet ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed my weekend stay here. House was lovely, while the view was amazing. Plus there was a deer living in the backyard, he even slept there. Two gorgeous parks were close by and there was a near bye pub. Only two things less then perfection, one was cell phone service was not good (but a landline is provided so that helps a lot), and second the bed in the master is only a double, comfy but small.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Ocean View House and that you found the views amazing. It is nice to see the deer so close by. We are sorry that you found the bed in the master bedroom small. The beds in the master and second bedrooms are both queen sized beds, which are 60" wide and they both take queen sized bedding. The cell phone service is dependant on your provider so it was good you made use of the landline which we provide for our guests use.. We hope to see you again on your future visits to Nanaimo

Great Location and Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect, being close to Neck Point, local trails to walk the dog and easy access to shopping, restaurants and groceries. The home was very clean, comfortable, and we spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the spectacular view. For people that are unfamiliar with Vancouver Island, there is plenty of great information on the local attractions and sites. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone and would return in the future.

Great view from every window!!

  • 5 of 5

Laguna Rd home has a beautiful view. The patio overlooking the water was a great start for coffee and planning our day. Also a great ending to review what a great day we had and enjoy dinner, cocktails, and dinner. We saw deer everyday and one day saw a cougar strolling down the street. Canada is very pristine, friendly and an overall lovely place to visit. Our house had everything you need to make yourself at home. Thank you. 5 STARS

Owner's Response: We are not at all surprised you saw deer daily as they are frequent visitors to our back yard. However, we are very surprised and even a little jealous that you would see a cougar. We have lived here several years and have never seen one, especially strolling down the street. We are very happy you made the most of the deck to enjoy your morning coffee and plan your day. Nanaimo is a beautiful city and Vancouver Island has so much to offer. We hope you managed to do lots of fun things and if you missed anything this time around, we hope you will chose our home for your next visit.
