We were planning a 1 night stay and ended up staying 3. Location ideal to explore the island. You can make a day trip to Tofino and Victoria from this location. Butchard Gardens is a short ferry trip away. You will need a car. Nanaimo is easily reached from the Horseshoe Bay ferry in West Vancouver. This means it will be possible to visit Whistler for a day trip from this location. The rooms have spectacular harbour views. You see the ferry's and seaplanes coming and going while having a soak in the hottub on the veranda. The guesthouse features a guest floor with a infrared light sauna, pooltable and small kitchenette. The owners are locals from the island. They give wonderfull advice and if they do not know they find out.
The biggest treat was the 5 star breakfast!
Do not drive past Nanaimo again. Make it your home base and explore the island from there.
