We loved our stay in the studio apartment/flat. The location was great. We were able to walk almost everywhere during our month-long stay, grocery stores, cafe's, bakery, seafood store, liquor & wine stores, water front pub...even downtown, all within easy and pleasant walking distances, even despite the wet November weather. Cathy and Brent were great hosts. We arrived late from the last ferry crossing and were pleasantly greeted when we finally arrived. The flat was clean and inviting and fully furnished and stocked with pots, pans, linens, towels, coffee maker...everything we needed. We cooked most of our diners at home but there are a lot of dining and eating out opportunities, including fine-dining for those who prefer. Fair warning, the flat may be a tad on the small side for some, but no different from what we've became used to after traveling for a month in Italy this past summer

“Great studio, great location, great hosts!!!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2014

The studio has everything you could possibly need..from towels to cooking utensils!!! Very cute studio with a great backyard and view of the ocean . The place is well kept and very clean.Beat part??? Only steps from the seawall and stroll into town. The other way is to the marina and a couple of great restaurants and of courser, the ferry terminal! Both Cathy and Brent went out of there way to make us feel at home and welcome. I would highly recommend this studio to everyone!

“Quiet and relaxing stay”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2014

This little apartment is compact but with everything you need for a lovely stay. There is a large fridge and cooker and plenty of space for up to 2 people. There is a nice deck outside with a small view of the sea, which would have been nice in warmer weather. The apartment was conveniently located about half an hour from downtown and half an hour from the hospital It has a great wifi connection and is very close to departure bay ferry terminal and bus stops for getting around, although I would recommend a car to explore the island with. The only thing that I would say was that the apartment was a little dusty when I arrived and the famous canadian ants were a bit of a nightmare for the last week of my stay, but Cathy and Brent were really nice and helpful with every aspect of my stay, even when they were out of the country! I would have loved to have had a curtain to separate the bed area from the cooking area as they were very close together and it was hard to stop my clothes and bed linen smelling like food. However, overall it was fantastic and I am very glad I stayed there. I would fully recommend it to independent travellers and couples.

“My stay in Nanaimo”

I stayed at this property for two months. It was an excellent choice for me. It was conveniently located for my work and shopping mall was closeby. It is a cozy apt with all amenities. Brent and Cathy are excellent landlords and very helpful and willing to do things to make my stay comfortable.

“Cozy Home, Great Location”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2013

I had a lovely one month stay in this beautiful little studio. It's conveniently located close to the ferry terminal and groceries, and not too far from downtown Nanaimo. The owners were really kind and willing to address any concerns, going out of their way to provide great service. The bed is super comfy and the studio is equipped with everything you could need. It feels brand new and is very well kept.

“A Little Home From Home”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2013

Thanks to Cathy & Brent they made are stay very memorable with their friendliness and input of the area for sightseeing, and the location of their rental could of not have been better as a central location for everything that we wanted to do i.e. sightseeing and shopping and all the amenities which was offered with the rental just made everything so nice and easy, it was as if you never left home except for size of the rental which is diffidently set up for two (but far, far better than a hotel room). This rental gets an a+ from us with plans in the works for our next trip to Victoria Island/Nanaimo.

“Can't beat the price!”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

Stayed here for one week. It was good for the price. Had everything you needed and more. The bed was quite soft though and the place was a bit humid. Overall we enjoyed our stay!

“Great appartement with very friendly Host”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

It was a great stay which we had here. We found enough towels for the complete week and we could do our laundry there - big machine and dryer. save on foods plus bakery and butcher (and the typical fastfood stores and more) are a five-minute walk away and about 20 min into city center. looking for a quality home for less? you found it! ps: good and quick e-mail-communication before the stay.

“good location”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2013

The service was excellent The suite was almost new, and had lots of towels and good quality cookware, and a nice view from the outside sundeck. Very central location with lots of good restaurants close by. What we liked best was "Emma", the owner's very friendly cat, and the racoons in the back yard.

“A cozy home away from home”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2013

I really enjoyed my stay here, it felt more like "home" than any hotel. So nice to have the kitchen area to cook dinner after a long day of hiking & sight-seeing. I brought my computer and used the Wi-Fi service (something I haven't done before) and it was so helpful looking up routes to travel and places to see the next day on the internet, while having a bite to eat and relaxing. I rented a car, but certainly didn't need to if I had planned on just visiting Nanaimo...everything really is close by. Wonderful owners that make you feel like invited guests, anything you needed they were more than happy to help with and a bed that was one of the most comfortable I have slept on anywhere I've stayed.
