- Very Good
We went to Nanaimo for a scuba dive trip. We rented the lower unit with 2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms. We had 4 adults. The place was roomy and comfortable for all of us. The walkout and covered deck along with the extended driveway really made moving scuba equipment around much easier. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating allowing us to use the area to spread out the gear, use their hose to rinse and dry our equipment. The house is beautiful and very close to the ferry, to the marina and all amenities. We will recommend to our scuba diver friends.
Having not traveled away from family with our 8 month old infant, we were unsure what to expect. Peter and Irene went out of their way to ensure that everything was perfect. The clean and well-windowed rental space was just what we were looking for and a mere 10 minute walk to the hospital or beach, with the destination dependent on whether it was myself or my wife doing the walking! Peter and Irene even went above and beyond, finding age-appropriate toys for our child prior to our arrival. I'd suggest they released the deer and whales for us to see as well, but I think that may be beyond even Peter's capabilities. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone interested in staying in Nanaimo. Easy access to amenities and close to the harbour in a safe neighbourhood, it's all we could have asked for.
“A perfect short-term home”
We stayed in this apartment for 2 months this fall. We had decided to move back to the island and needed a place to stay that was central and would accomodate our 3 young kids while we all explored Nanaimo and searched for a house. Peter and Irene were incredibly welcoming and kind. The apartment with immaculate and very well-appointed, with plenty of room for everyone. the location was very central - a very short drive to downtown, 10 minute walk to a beautiful beach access, less than 5 minutes to groceries, a hardware store, coffe, etc. We actually opted to buy a house just up the road! A huge bonus was the covered deck where the kids could play, even on rainy days. The extra bathroom was very helpful as was the washer/dryer in the suite. There was a ton of storage space through out the place that made it easier to store a lof of our luggage and kid "stuff". The view was beautiful and truly took our breath away every day. And the kids loved looking at the deers that frequently wandered right outside the windows. Would definitely recommned this place to anyone! Thanks again Peter and Irene.
“Excellent experience. Thank you”
Excellent house, excellent hosts. Will rent the same house again
“Bel emplacement avec vue sur la baie”
Terrasse au niveau du sol avec BBQ et table de pique nique pour manger à l'extérieur. Laveuse et sécheuse pour le lavage. Toutes les commodités, comme si on était à la maison. Propriétaires sont vraiment gentils et nous a très bien accueillis. La maison est près de l'épicerie, 1heure de Victoria, 3h de Tofino, 45min de Cathedral. Vraiment central et à 3min du BC Ferries se rendant à Vancouver (HorseShoe Bay). Coin très paisible. Nous reviendrions sans hésitations. Merci Irène et Peter du beau séjour.
“Wonderful Family Vacation!”
Hi Irene & Peter, We had a wonderful time staying at your place. You guys are excellent hosts even before our arrival. We were groups of 8 people (4 adults and 4 teens), we appreciate your constant follow-ups with us through emails and phone call in making sure we were well informed about the transportations, ferry schedules, car rental and also provided us with map/direction on how to get to your place from the ferry terminal. We had fun times visiting the places of interest that you suggested; we also managed to sneak in the zip-lining aerial advanture at Wild Play :) The children had so much fun there! Your place is exactly how it shows in your website; bright and clean, very scenic and beautiful. Irene and Peter, you guys are friendly, respectful and always with a sense of humour and we thank you for opening up your home for us! Please take great care! Lu & the gang :)
“Host hospitality and accommodations were both excellent.”
From the time we arrived Irene and Peter displayed wonderful hospitality. Once they had us acquainted with the suite they respected our privacy. Travelling with two elderly mothers the accommodations fit their needs. All enjoyed their stay. A well equipped kitchen was provided. The view is outstanding. The location of the suite is very close to shopping and beach. We have and will continue to recommend this accommodation to others.
“Lovely location and comfortable accommodation”
My family's recent stay on Vancouver Island was greatly assisted by the comfortable accommodation and friendly advice about sightseeing provided by the owner of this accommodation Peter. We rented the ground floor 2 bedroom apartment and it met the requirements of 4 adults very well. There was enough seating for all, both indoors and out, and the separate half bathroom made life easier. I'm happy to report that the view shown is pretty much what you'll see. Even though we didn't make much use of the kitchen, it had everything we needed and had we stayed longer, we could have and would have put it to great use. The house is very close to the Departure Bay ferry terminal which was very handy.
“Nanaimo Long Weekend”
Peter and Irene were able to accommodate our group of 5 at the last minute. We were so pleased to find a place for all of us to stay together instead of having to rent separate hotel rooms. The rate was also fair when compared to booking hotels in the area. The place was spacious, private and clean and the 2 full bathrooms were great for us having to get ready for many wedding functions. The location was ideal as it was close to both the Departure Bay ferries as well as the Island Highway. There is also a small plaza within walking distance. Thank you Peter and Irene for being such lovely hosts.
This vacation rental was in a perfect location, in a great neighbourhood only a short walk to the beach, and comes with lovely hosts. The place is clean and has a well-equipped kitchen.
