About Elaine Cowan
I emigrated to Canada 25 years ago, with my family from New Zealand. I am an avid gardener, and are enjoying developing an English Country style Garden. I have also developed a large cutting garden, and design arrangements, and bouquets for a local market, weddings, and other small events. I love living in this little piece of paradise!
Elaine Cowan purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2014
Why Elaine Cowan chose Nanoose Bay
Fell in love with the beautiful south facing property, its expansive view of the ocean and beyond, the privacy, and it's central location. It is a few short minutes to Hwy 19, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and close to many attractions in the surrounding area. A nice day trip to the West Coast, Mt Washington, and also Victoria.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Luxurious, and restful place to relax and enjoy, And the benefit of having walk on water ocean front property right outside front gate, fun to watch the ebb and flow of the tides across the shallow sands at the head of the bay, enjoy the water birds, as well as eagles in their perching tree, or nest nearby. The water is calm, which creates a restful place, and makes for easy paddling in a kayak, or canoe when exploring the bay, you are welcome to use B&B kayaks. I Built the home in 2011, and moved in early 2012, and have recently developed the Guest wing, into a B&B.

We had an amazing vacation here! Everything was evenn so much more beautiful in person! Our host was lovely and she spoiled us with a wonderful breakfast each morning! We loved Larry her dog who was well mannered and greeted us each morning and every coming and going.. The goats and cats were adorable and friendly (all pets were outdoor pets). We were centrally located with a variety of local beaches, wineries, whale watching out of Nanaimo, and beauty all around.
I would STRONGLY recommend this place to anyone!
Thank you Leasa, I appreciate your wonderful review of my B&B and loved that you enyoyed your stay! Larry and I will miss you both!
Awesome! Quiet little getaway. The kayaks were a great bonus on a beautiful bay. Loved the setting.
Easy, smooth, simple, great communication.
Fabulous Girlfriend Getaway!
Elaine made us feel right at home from the get go. Larry, her beautiful golden retriever, made the perfect greeter. Delicious breakfasts, serene setting overlooking the water and so close to Coombs market and other attractions. All three of us really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Elaine and Larry!
Beautiful spot, spa like B&B
We had an extremely positive visit to this B&B. It’s an absolutely beautiful spot and very secluded. The Bed and Breakfast is very well maintained and luxurious. Elaine made a delicious breakfast. Well worth a visit, would recommend.
Totally Awesome Experience!
My wife and two daughters absolutely loved staying at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast.
Elaine was an above and beyond host! Not only was her place clean, quaint and beautifully furnished with lovely floral gardens outside, but she was located right on a gorgeous bay in a great location with access to many amazing excursions (sky diving, hiking, whale watching, etc.). We enjoyed hours of kayaking from her shores among harbor seals. We all loved her beautiful friendly golden retriever Larry, especially our kids. In addition, the breakfasts she prepared were out of this world. We so looked forward to them each morning! On top of all that, we realized we had left a few items behind, which she kindly sent to us! Way, way above and beyond and such a wonderful stay. Highly recommend staying here. We hope to return some day. Thank you so much Elaine!
Thank you Randy, you and your family were such a pleasure to have stay, and pleased you ejoyed kayaking in the bay, even getting up at 5 in the morning to see the sunrise on the water for your last kayak before you left and it was great to see your pleasure in doing this as you returned!
Welcome back anytime!
My husband and two sisters spent four nights here. The property with the ocean and beautiful flowers made it feel like heaven. Elaine was the perfect hostess. The beds were so comfortable and the breakfasts she made for us each morning were a delight/ Homemade muffins,breads and jams. with fresh eggs. Location is central to all the sight seeing. Her dog Larry stole our hearts and we were amused with her goats. All in all it was a wonderful little holiday.
Thank you Barbara, it was a pleasure to have you stay, and pleased to hear you enjoyed your breakfasts. I'm sure Larry missed your attention when you left, and many thanks for the help with the goats!
