“Gal Pal Weekend Extraordinaire”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2014

Sometimes you need to ditch the husband/boyfriend and the kids/pets and get away with your amazing girlfriends for a weekend of laughter, camaraderie, good food, and way too much wine. Eight of us rented this fantastic house right on the ocean in Departure in walk-on waterfront! The location is spectacular. Did I mention the beach? Waves crashing. Gorgeous sunrises. Seals. Eagles. Otters. Ferries coming and going. Sea planes floating overhead. Breathtaking. And the house! We all gasped when we arrived. The place is gorgeous. Better than the pictures on the website. It is very well laid out. There are places to gather, and places to get away from each other. There are decks front and back and a large patio with a BBQ. The beds are comfy. Big bathrooms. Good linens, sheets and towels. The kitchen rocks. It is very well equipped from spices, to sharp knives and all manner of cooking pots, pans, platters, gadgets - the list is endless. Whoever set-up this kitchen is obviously a good cook. And of course the two big gas fireplaces to nestle in front of at the end of the day. But beyond all that, there is something about the house that invites you to kick back, relax, unwind and just be - be with your friends, be with nature, be alone, best of all - be present. We've all decided that this will be our "same time next year" special place.

“Winter Getaway”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2014

We wanted to escape the awful winter in Calgary and have family visit us as well, and we knew from renting Seaview previously that the Departure Bay Beach House was in a fabulous location. I couldn't resist the newly built home, and it truly delivered. The main floor is very well laid out, and flows right out to the Bay. But the main show-stopper was the view from the second floor. The windows give a panoramic view of the ever changing Bay and took our breath away. Family and friends came to stay with us, and they were impressed as well. I put family members to work in the completely outfitted kitchen, and even had my brother-in-law on the BBQ one night. The fireplaces were a big hit with everyone, and the TVs only came on for a couple Olympic hockey games. We were too busy taking in the view and enjoying our surroundings to turn it on otherwise! The whole experience was so well worth it, and the house is so lovely we referred to it many times when we were out as "heading home". I think there can be no higher compliment than to have that feeling - a sense of home while on vacation in a stunning setting.

Response from the owner Wow! Michelle, such high praise! We are overwhelmed with your feedback about your stay and the house. We work hard to make the house a home away from home, and are delighted that you felt exactly that while in residence. Thank you so much for your kind words. And I love the pictures that you posted. Further evidence of the wild life on the beach. Hope to see you soon. All best best, Su G.

“Wonderful Experience”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2013

Our wonderful experience with Su from Departure Bay Beach House started long before we arrived. Su knew I was planning to travel with 2 seniors (one in a wheelchair) and my daughter. She was so helpful with activity suggestions that the 4 of us could do, even though there were 3 generations to please. Then suddenly, my plans changed 24hrs before arrival and the trip turned into a 2 sisters and 2 daughters trip. Su sent me more wonderful suggestions of things we could do as 4 "Island Girls". Arrival at the house took our breath away. It is easy to find in Nanaimo and close to all the shopping amenities you may need. The house is exactly as shown on the web site. It's just beautiful... and the grounds are beautifully done as well. The cleanliness is spot on and all appliances are in perfect working order. The scenery of the bay is breath-taking; the house is steps from the ocean. Su goes that extra mile to make you comfortable. Aware that my trip was suddenly changed at the last moment and thinking that I might be a tad stressed, she had a bottle of "Stress relief "waiting in the fridge for us, as well as fresh bakery bread. So sweet of her. We had 4 nights, 5 days of fun ... using ideas sent in texts from Sue and suggestions from her guest binder on the counter. It was comforting to know that Su is readily available to deal with any issues (which we had none!) She really looks out for her guests! We would not hesitate to return for another visit and would recommend this beach house to anyone!


Reviewed 14 Sep 2013

We were speechless from the moment we opened the front door. This home was exceptionally planned and bulit and makes everyone, children and elderly alike feel at home. The ocean is the backyard and it invites you to start every day of your vacation feeling inspired and happy. The pebble beach opens up to beautiful sand at low tide, and the ocean treasures are a must see experience... From ferries to sea planes, seals, friendly geese and even resident starfish, you are in a private location, but are never really alone. This vacation home allowed our family to have many special gatherings as it is very open, accomodating and comfortable for large groups. Everyone staying at the home had their own bedroom, bathroom, and even access to various decks situated very well on the property. The kitchen and dining area are very welcoming and are really an invitation to coming out to enjoy the beauty of departure bay. We never felt the need to leave for anything better...Truly one of our most memorable family vacations. We can't wait to come back again next year... The property owner, Su, went out of her way to welcome, greet and see us off as well. Truly the start of a wonderful friendship... Thanks so much for letting us share your beautiful home...
