A warm and entertaining home away from home really clean and striking views of the straits.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the house after dark and had absolutely no trouble following the directions.

The property was spick and span inside and out, including two types of Humming Birds and a visit from a fawn and doe. The views of the Georgia Straits were beautiful and entertaining with fishing boats and Navy maneuvers.

Jean Guy was friendly, courteous prompt and helpful. We would surely recommend this home and location.

Thanks to you my wife and I were able to see our new Grandson and go home each night to our own quiet home. We were able to have our family come and visit with us at our house and serve them a couple of home cooked meals with the use of the lovely kitchen appliances and dishes. We spilled a little bit of that meal on our, shirt and were able to wash up our clothes with the washer and dryer. We live in Ontario, Canada so you can understand how wonderful it was to welcome our family over to a meal at our vacation home..

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a positive review of Ocean View House. It sounds like you were able to take every advantage of the amenities our home has to offer. One of the things our guests always enjoy is the views of Georgia Straits and on clear days views of Vancouver as well. It is always nice to be able to have home cooked meals when away from home instead of having to eat out at restaurants. How nice it must have been for you to see your new grandson and have your family over for a meal or two. We certainly hope you will stay at Ocean View House again if you plan on returning to Nanaimo to visit your family in the future.

Fabulous views from every angle of the property

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and comfortable and had all the amenities needed. The house is attractive , but the views are unbelievable. We felt they were some of the best views we saw on our vacation on the island. It was so very nice to come back to this house after a day of activities. We spent every evening on the balcony enjoying the views and the sunsets. It was so wonderful sitting out, that we never turned on the tv. We loved the beautiful parks just 5 mins away. Jean Guy was very helpful in giving us tips on destinations close by. We really enjoyed our stay there and had a great vacation. We would definitely return. We can highly recommend this house!

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.

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.
