There are two bedrooms; both have queen sized beds. This home sleeps a maximum of 6 guests as the futon bed, located in the private study sleeps 2. Your master bedroom has a flat screen TV, and 3 piece ensuite bathroom which leads out onto the deck where you can enjoy the panoramic ocean view.

Within a 5 minutes drive,you will be at the trailhead of Linley Valley, a large dog-friendly park with lakes and streams and trails that go on forever. There are several mountain bike trails in Linley Valley and around the city.

Come and stay at Ocean View House, a home away from home and enjoy the beauty of Vancouver Island.

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to stay at accommodations that offer kitchen space and that allows us and our teenaged son to spread out a little. This house and its amazing views was the icing on our vacation to Nanaimo. We looked forward to our leisurely suppers on the private deck each night. The kitchen provided ample space for us to make meals as well. The location must be mentioned since we were just an hour or 2 away from everywhere we went including: Victoria, Cowachin Bay, Parksville and Comox. We will definitely be back and recommend this awesome house to friends!

Owner's Response: We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Ocean View House. It is nice to have the space to relax and enjoy the views after a busy day sightseeing. Nanaimo is very central on the Island and is a great location if you want to explore the Island as many of our guests do. We hope you can make it back as we would love to have you stay at our home again.

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.
