We stayed at this property with our newborn twins. There are three large bedrooms and the beds were very comfortable. It provided the well equipped kitchen, bathroom & laundry facilities we needed as well as a large outdoor terrace with stunning views over Departure Bay. It's in a peaceful location, walking distance from the shops. Peter and Irene were the perfect hosts. They showed a personal interest in our family and helped us in many ways with the twins. Their hospitality was above and beyond our expectations. We would certainly stay there again. Thanks for everything Peter & Irene. Love from the twins!
My sisters and I rented this property for our vacation and it turned out to be the best thing we could have done. It was so much more private than renting a hotel/motel and it had everything you would ever need - dishwasher, washer, dryer, 3 bedrooms with very comfortable beds, sheets, towels, all paper products, etc. All you needed to bring were your personal items. The owners of the property were wonderful and were there to greet us and explain things to us and them left us along unless we had a problem (which we didn't) There is a big balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean and boats are coming and going every day - very relaxing. Stores, like the grocery store, liquor store and restaurants are within walking distance. I would highly recommend this property for you vacation.

Hosts Peter & Irene are definitely the most helpful in suggesting things to do and restaurants to go in Nanaimo! They are extremely responsive in answering our email.
We rented the 2nd level unit, and the view was somewhat blocked by the trees and the rooftop of the house in front. Nevertheless, it was still quite nice to see the ferry coming and leaving the dock.
I agree with another review that we did hear some noises from both downstairs and upstairs (particularly when Peter & Irene who are musicians practice their instruments). But it didn't bother us too much; it did make us a bit conscious when we were walking or talking or watching TV in our unit.
From the day we arrived Peter & Irene made us very welcome. The suite is spacious, well equipped and with a great view. We were visiting Nanaimo from the UK to see family and were able to invite them back for a BBQ to eat the salmon and rock fish caught on a day's fishing. We were delighted that Peter & Irene joined us and we had a brilliant musical evening together.
The suite is within walking distance of a supermarket but also close to roads leading into and away from Nanaimo itself.
We feel we left as friends and would highly recommend Peter & Irene as excellent hosts!
On a hot day, you can leave the windows open but then seabirds are really noisy and they will trouble your sleep. Breakfast was great.
