Welcome to a nature-lovers paradise, in central Vancouver Island in Nanoose Bay (13km north of Nanaimo). This vacation suite is surrounded by 100 acres of protected bird sanctuary/estuary lands. With numerous beaches, nature trails and local attractions you can keep as busy exploring as you'd like, although we suspect you'll choose to spend your time enjoying the properties amenities, peace and quiet and bird watching/star gazing from your private deck (and outdoor tub)!

Very disappointed. We could have overlooked the horrible bed, the unclean suite, the outdoor tub that was dirty and had bugs crawling around, the toilet you can't sit on cuz it's in a corner, the awkward owner, and the video camera right outside our window, had the place not been completely infested with ants. They were in the bed, the couch, carpet, kettle, toaster, crawling on us in the morning when we woke up etc.. We contacted them first thing in the morning to ask for bug spray, and without a reply the owner woke up my partner knocking at the door while I was in the shower. When I brought this to their attention they showed no interest at all in any form of compensation or even apology, basically saying since we waited until morning ( they have a sign posted not to contact them past 10pm unless for Emergencies only) they don't believe us. So we spent the weekend fixing their bug issues. There are many other cheaper, nicer places I would recommend. For $300+ per night I don't expect to be sleeping on a terrible bed picking bugs off of myself. How this place got the rating they have I will never know, but unless you are are an enthusiast for ants, I would stay away from this overrated dump.

The Inn is situated in the estuary and in a unique location. Amazing views and when the tides are right it's possible to kayak out. The host Harold is lovely and will give lots of information about what to do in the area. Very comfortable beds, well appointed and lovely place. The real treat is the view. Unobstructed views of the estuary with herons, hummingbirds and lovely skies. In the area we fished, kayaked, hiked and paddled. You can swim in nearby Englishman River. I'm more of a city person so I'd recommend the hiking and kayaking to people who like a fairly sedate pace. It was beginner level!
