We have been living in Nanaimo for the past 8 yrs and love all the island has to offer. We especially enjoy the wonderful moderate climate, and the wide variety of healthy outdoor activities available at our doorstep.
Having travelled extensively in Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand, we've always enjoyed the value and flexibility of staying in self contained suites. It is because of our enjoyable travelling experiences that set us on this path to offer this distinct, one of a kind accommodation.
Norma is a retired Operating room Registered Nurse. Robert has been a furniture designer and maker for 40 years. His working Studio is on the property so he is always available for visits from our guests. He was instrumental in organizing the popular Hammond Bay Open Studio Tour featuring fabulous local artists working in various mediums. A number of these talented artists exhibit in the Artful Suite, which lends to the richness of the decor.
So our intent was not only to offer a unique, comfortable surroundings for travellers but also a venue for local artists to showcase their work which is available for sale through the Artful Suite.

My husband and I were delighted to be the first guests. Attention to the smallest detail was evident in this clean and convenient private suite. We enjoyed the unique aspect of local art and handcrafted furnishings displayed throughout.
Great Location....only a short walk to seaside Piper's Lagoon Park where we experienced spectacular eagle watching and beautiful mountain views.
