Coming from Germany it was our second time in the "Pine & Picket". This time we stayed in the beautiful garden cottage. As we were scuba diving that proved to be the perfect choice as there is plenty of room for the scuba gear (not to mention that Ingvar always has some ideas where to dry gear after the dives!). For 5 nights the cottage was our home and whenever we come back to Nanaimo this will be the place we stay! Having travelled extensively in our "professional career" we learned to appreciate the little things that are missing in the "big hotels".... not so here! Anja and Ingvar are perfect hosts and you will always feel home......

Very enjoyable 2 night stay and so close to the ferry terminal. Friendly and helpful owner operator made us feel at home. Stayed in the cottage surrounded by relaxing garden scenery. Definitely would stay again and I recommend this place to everyone. The kitchen was well equipped with tasty food in the fridge and cupboards to use during our stay.

My daughter and I spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The gardens were a delight, all sorts of wonderful plants growing. Very convenient to the ferry from Vancouver and central to exploring the Island. We will definitely make a return visit and highly recommend this charming B&B.

The accommodations were perfect for two couples travelling together .Two rooms with a sitting room between them .The breakfast was delicious served with plenty of good coffee. Ania and Ingvar are great hosts very entertaining and can give good recommendations for local restaurants. Location is great for ferries and exploring further up the island.Their garden shows how much you can grow in small areas and is full of great produce. We would certainly stay here again.

My wife and me stayed with Ania & Ingvar for 2 nights in June and it was just perfect. They were great hosts and welcomed us warmly! The room was great with love for details and you could even see the water from our balcony. Ania prepared us delicious breakfast and gave us tips where to go in Nanaimo. Unfortunately we couldn’t go kayaking as it was too windy. We had a great time and enjoyed it very much. Sending warm greetings to Canada from Germany, Martin & Ulrike
