Booked this accommodation via the Internet from the UK. What a stunning choice and a very memorable one. From the moment we arrived at their house and saw the view across to other islands, we were hooked. The guest accommodation provided was luxurious and the hosts Viv and Neil, exceptional. They were friendly and welcoming and genuinely interested in their... More

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed at the Flying Cloud B&B at the end of July and enjoyed our 3 night stay tremendously. From the warm welcome on arrival to our final breakfast we were treated like special guests. The breakfasts were amazing, our rooms very comfortable and the views over Nanimo Harbour unforgettable.

The first impression is the bright smile oft your hosts and their warm hospitality, the second the stunning view over the harbour of Nainamo. When you arrive during the afternoon both will be combined in a wine- and-cheese- welcome-snack on the terrace.The house is beautiful, the rooms are nobly furnitured and everything is more than perfect. The pool billiard table,... More

We were so sad we could only stay one night with Vivian and Neil and their two little kitty cats. The bedroom was huge, so was the bathroom. We felt very welcome from the start till we unfortunately had to hit the road again. Our breakfast, set on the terrasse with stunning view and humming birds all around us was... More

I cannot say enough about my experience at the Flying Cloud. Viv, (with a Master's in Home Economics) is the best Hostess ever!..I almost felt as if I didn't deserve all of the doting she did over me and my Mom! The breakfast is served complete with doilies, homemade muffins, fresh fruit, homemade gourmet egg creations, and music to match... More

Vivian is an absolute delight! From the moment we walked into their beautiful home she was gracious warm and welcoming. It was like going to visit a distinct relative you've never met.

Carlsberg don't do B&Bs, but if they did - (this is only relevant if you know UK beer advertising!). For those with a more literal bent, George Orwell described the perfect pub in his essay, 'The Moon Under Water'. The Flying Cloud ticks all the boxes I could possibly think of. Perfect location? Tick. Absolutely welcoming hosts? Tick. Great beds?... More
