    Additional Location Information
    Centrally located in a safe and quiet neighborhood, it is a stone's throw from the ferry terminal and the float plane terminal. We are within a short walk to a bus stop, to Brooks Landing Mall (with Save-On Foods supermarket, pharmacy and a deli, a gas station, a hardware store, Royal Bank, travel and insurance agency, Tim Horton’s, a Chinese restaurant, Staples and more).

    Within 5-7 minutes driving distance are boat ramps, Beban Park Recreation Centre with pool and gym, bike trails, hiking trails, Nanaimo Golf Club, Nanaimo Downtown and Harbour, Seawall and fishing pier, antique stores, Nanaimo museum, & Port Theatre.

    From the suite, watch float planes and ferries zip in and out of the channel, marvel the ever changing wonders of Nature: glorious sunrise, rolling fog or a rainbow, or observe Canada geese honking above, or a family of deer feeding in the yard. Walk to the beach, a forest trail nearby, or to a golf course.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Excellent suite, comfortable, and clean; but noise transmits easily through the ceiling. Tolerable mostly, though quite disruptive on one evening. Very good experience overall. Nice neighbourhood. Fantastic view. Excellent hosts. more

Management response:

Our house is built to the demanding 2007 new building code. All the rooms are insulated. Helicopter clips were installed in the ceiling to reduce noise level. Although we have a grand piano upstairs, the sound is muffed. However, we cannot eliminate all sounds. The customer is a medical professional and was pursuing study and training in a local hospital.... more
