Modest sized room, but comfortable queen bed. Ensuite bath, Mini fridge, microwave, Kettle, in room tea and coffee. TV free wifi.... all the amenities! We had a quiet garden suite which was detached from the main house with it's private entrance. Our Host was a stickler for schedules, but breakfast was taken in the dining room overlooking the gorgeous views.... More

We only had one night, but wished we could have stayed all weekend. This place is fabulous! The amenities are so well thought out, right down to the squeegee in the shower. Warren and Janet are beautiful people. They're very personable and accommodating. Warren makes a pretty mean breakfast!! The view is golden! We live in Vancouver and spend a... More

We enjoyed the very comfy bed with fine linens, an updated lovely bathroom, the mini fridge and everything needed to make our coffee & tea in the morning. The hot tub was clean & freshly serviced, &... More

We had a dinner to go to in Nanaimo and decided to make a weekend of it rather than drive back to Victoria. I found this B & B on tripadvisor and was attracted by the view and the hot tub. My reservation was handled quickly and efficiently by Warren. He also suggested we check in early so we could... More

Initial Booking Process: Jan provided a very quick response to our email inquiries and also provided heads-up info about the BC Summer Games that prompted us to change our travel plans. Since most of the accommodations in Nanaimo was booked for the BC Summer Games we had limited choices. Jan offered a flexible choice of rooms to accommodate us after... More

I am thrilled to say we were not disappointed! We reserved the Ocean View room and when we walked in all... More

On our first trip to Vancouver Island we decided to pamper ourselves and stay at a B&B. We couldn't have done better. Warren was a very welcoming host (his wife had time off), and was great in answering any questions we had as well as cooking up a great breakfast each morning. Highlights are the terrific views, the long walks... More

The eagles have left now to take their baby (our 29th) away to feed at the mouths of the rivers, they will return the first of Oct. The hummingbirds are still coming and... More
