About Tammy Beach

Being from the East Coast, my husband and I love the ocean. We have always dreamed of owning an ocean front property and a couple years ago we made that dream come true. It was the best decision we have ever made. We try to escape to the island with our kids as much as we can.

Tammy Beach purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tammy Beach chose Vancouver Island

We discovered this property a few years ago when we were searching for a family oriented waterfront vacation rental. We found paradise, it had everything we were looking for and more.....needless to say we bought a condo there and now want to share what we have found.

What makes this condo unique

Having a dock available to moore our boat is a huge advantage to us.

Our kids would say the Pool is their favorite thing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful Condo! We had 6 people up for a friends birthday and it was perfect. Loved the hot tub and beach fire pit. Thanks!

Very Disappointed !!

  • 1 of 5

This is our second review..... was the first not received ? Loved being by the ocean, but the condo itself was another story.... because this is the second one we have been asked to write ; thinking that the other one is there somewhere.... will just tell of one big main concern we had.... upon opening the doors, we were greeted with big musty, mouldy smell; which stayed with us for the 2 weeks we were there , and it did not help to open the windows and doors, as that smell was in everything.... sheets ,pillows, blankets ,towels, and even in our clothes when we got home . Was totally disgusting, and no reason for that at all. Our friend , who was with us ; has allergies, so you know what that did to her ! This condo should never be rented out ; much less at that price ; and feeling that we were totally ripped off !!

Owner's Response: This is the first complaint that we have had about an odor and we will of course, look into the matter immediately. It could have been that our condo was closed up and not rented out in January combined with the extra cold temperatures and moisture on the Island this year, it could have caused a stale odor. I wish to thank the reviewer for bringing this to our attention. As you can see in our other reviews I've never had a odor complaint and everyone seems to love our condo as much as we do. Our guests comfort is of paramount importance to us and the issue will be addressed immediately.

Weekend getaway with friends

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend with friends. Used the hot tub as pool was too cold. Nice to be able to make meals in the condo with all the equipment there. Also nice to have a room downstairs for the light sleepers. Overall everything was very nice. We did replace the smoke alarm battery as it was beeping all night, but no big deal. Loved the scary haunted house at Mcnabb farms....especially being chased down the road with a crazed chainsaw murderer!

Wonderful time at Inn of the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in Ladysmith at Inn of the Sea. It was just as we expected. Tammy was great to communicate with. The accommodations were great, but there was sooooo much to see and do in the area that we really spent very little time at the condo. It was spacious for the four of us (2 couples) and very clean. My husband enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The view of the ocean from the balcony was lovely, and the view from the shore was even nicer. There was no air conditioning (there was a fan), but when we were there (beginning of July) we did not need it. The occupants around us were very quiet. I would recommend this place to others, no problem.

Some of the enjoyable things nearby that we did that you should check out:

Rathtrevor Beach - can walk and beach comb for a couple kilometres before you actually hit the water

Whale watching in Cowichan Bay - a fabulous experience

The Old Bakery in Ladysmith - the best bakery we've ever been to with very reasonable prices; go for breakfast or lunch or take-out!

All the falls in the area!! (Little Qualicum Falls, Englishman River Falls, etc.) - spectacular scenery

Cathedral Grove - huge, old trees

Paradise Mini Golf - (Parksville?) - again, the best we've been to!

Goats on the Roof - market, Cuckoos restaurant, ice cream shop

Dinghy Dock floating pub - take the passenger ferry across to Protection Island

We really enjoyed our stay on the island and plan to go back to see what we missed!

Inn Of Sea

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Spent 5 days in the condo just prior to Easter break.

The unit was easy to find and get to from the Departure Bay Ferry, approximately 20 minute drive. Even though the complex is out of the way it is close enough to Ladysmith, Nanaimo etc to make trips. Being out of the way was an advantage as it was quiet with little to no noise. The resort in on the ocean , rocky beach with a park close by and well sheltered.

Try the pizza place in Ladysmith and bakery, well worth the trip.

We used our condo as a place to relax between trips to Parksville, Victoria, Chemainus and Salt Spring Island. All easy to get too.

Overall complex was excellent, grounds were well taken care off and the people were respectful.

Our unitwas clean and well supplied. Found the seating to be a little uncomfortable in the living room but overall everything else was excellent. The kitchen was well supplied with everything you required.

Very happy with our stay, was excellent to be allowed to have our dogs with us and would stay again if we are in the region.
