We really enjoyed our stay at the Pine and Picket. Our hosts, Ania and Ingvar, were wonderful people whose warm hospitality made us feel right at home. Ania is a fabulous cook, actually trained as a French chef, and our breakfast was delicious. Everything was homemade and organic if they could get it. Ania went out to her back yard... More

After a full day of whale watching in Nanaimo, we arrived at the Pine & Picket about 8pm tired, starving and in need of a shower. We were greeted by Ania and Ingvar and immediately felt relaxed; not only did they welcome us into their home, our room was prepared to a fantastic standard. We were given directions (and a... More

Ania and Ingvar and extremely personable and welcome you into their homes as they would family. Their ability to cater to our whims goes beyond what would be expected. My husband & I have visited several times over the years to scuba dive in Nanaimo. The location of this B&B is just perfect, close to the ferry and to the... More

The lovely Pine & Picket made our stay in Nanaimo to a funny, culinary excellent, and very comfortable one. In the Madagaskar room we had more than everything you need - from bodylotion to dvd's - everything. Everything was clean and created with so much love. Ania and Ingvar are such lovely characters. Ania, a french chef, we fell under... More

The location of the Pine and Picket is perfect being just a minute from the departure bay ferry terminal in one direction and a stroll along the excellent waterfront into downtown Nanaimo in the other. Ania and Ingvar are really outgoing people and obviously enjoy having people stay in their home. We had some great conversations during the three days... More

We recently spent 3 weeks in British Columbia staying in B&B`s. There were some good one`s, some very good one`s and above all was the Pine and Picket.
