“A Little Piece of Heaven”
Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Myself, my 2 year old twin boys, and my parents enjoyed a 5 night stay at the beach house. The location, views and cleanliness are hard to beat! The house was perfect for my little guys with the large enclosed deck, water just a few feet away and a play park right next door. It was very close to amenities - restaurants and grocery stores and it was very convenient being so close to the ferry terminal. The island highway is just minutes from the house which makes access anywhere very easy. However, the house was so beautiful, we could have just stayed put the entire time. I would 100% recommend this beach house to anyone - families, retirees, and couples alike. Su, the property manager, was more than accommodating and so very pleasant to deal with. We will most definitely be back for a stay in the beach house!

This house is beautiful I had the best sleep ever listening to the waves. The kitchen is well stocked with all utensils and appliances one can wish for. Excellent wifi and tv channel choices. My kids loved having the beach there.. we went crabbing lots and had lots of fun cooking up those crabs. I have friends and family that live in Nanaimo so it was nice to cook for them and visit. This is the second time I have been there and I see they have done some great reno's .. Love it! Can't go wrong and Su was always available if you had questions..this is my go to place can't wait to go back

“Most fabulous house I've ever had the pleasure to vacation in!”

I found this rental home online, and have been raving about it ever since. It is right on Departure Bay and you get to see the ferries come and go all day! Added to the fabulous vista and the immediate access to the beach, was the immaculately kept house. Well designed, up-to-date renovations, and very well organized from start to finish. There were signs for everything and a binder to help out when I had any questions. And when the binder didn't answer a question, I simply texted the individual I'd been dealing with and she texted right back. I stayed for a week with my husband and his brothers and sister-in-law, along with a friend of mine, while we were looking for a house to buy in Nanaimo. If I could've, I would've bought this place! I can't say enough about it - I recommend it to everyone!

Michelle, Thank you so very much for your kind words. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests, including your 7 pound ferocious guard dog Maggie. As a fellow foodie, it was fun to text back and forth with restaurant recommendations. Best news of all was that you and Scott have found a home in Nanaimo, and when the times comes, you will call our fair city home. We hope to be able to host you again in the very near future, especially now that West Jet will be offering daily non-stop service between Calgary & Nanaimo. Cheers, Su G.
