We stayed for two nights and the B&B certainly lived up to our expectations - and more! Harold was waiting for us when we arrived with plenty of tips for restaurants, hikes, drives etc. He made us more than welcome, made sure we had everything we needed and left us to enjoy the peace and serenity of his property.

This B&B looked good on the Internet...we were not disappointed. What a superb property in an unbelievable location - the estuary and all its wildlife outside your door. Harold and Marianne were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The standard of furnishings and decor were also superb. Faultless in everyday. View the film of the property on you... More

It’s a beautiful place, but more than that it is a place where you feel welcome and close to the natural serenity Harold and Marianne have created. Harold and Marianne have been magnificent hosts, attentive to our every need. The suite itself is luxury in the lap of nature. We loved it here and plan on coming back.

This was a surprise weekend away for my partner. He met me out there after his work day and spent my time alone by the estuary reading and enjoying some coffee. A quick walk up the hill to the grocery store and I had everything I needed for dinner. There is a private soaker tub on each patio and a... More

We had a fantastic two day stay at the Inn the Estuary in 'the view' suite. Harold offered us some excellent recommendations for things to do and see on the island. The location of the property is great for exploring beaches on the East coast and a couple of hours away from Tofino on the West Coast. The property is... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the View suite and did not want to leave! You are watching wildlife through large picture windows from sunrise to sunset, deer, all kinds of birds like blue herons, racoons, frogs.. The setting is also amazingly private while you are so much immersed in nature and actually really close to the town of Nanoose.... More

I knew Canada for great places like Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. As it turned out, Vancouver Island was something surprisingly especial and different from the mainland, with a marvelous offer of touristic places beyond great cities like Victoria and Nanaimo, and several small towns, facing the Continent through bays and beaches of unbelievable beauty. But when you meet Harold and... More

We had the privilege of staying with Harold and Maryanne at their lovely B&B. They are wonderful hosts and our suite was fabulous with the king size bed and full kitchen, the wide floor to ceiling windows that looked out to the estuary. My husband enjoyed his early morning, very private soak in the outdoor jacuzzi tub also looking over... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in The View suite, and loved it. It was decorated beautifully, and the floor-to-ceiling windows provided us with great views - the room is certainly aptly named! The View has access to 3 outdoor decking areas, one of which has a bbq, which was actually one of our highlights! Harold and Marianne were so... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 older teens) feel so, so lucky to have found this absolute gem of a property. The decor is so beautiful and polished. As you step through the door and look at the view, it takes your breath away. The views through the walls of windows are simply stunning. We spent many hours... More
