What a lovely place! The location is beautiful, right on the calm waters of the bay, with a lovely garden and patio areas and direct access to the pebble beach. Free use of kayaks and life vests. A very warm welcome from the dogs, cats, and from Elaine of course. The rooms were joined to, but separate from, the rest of the house, with a separate entrance. Everything was so clean and beautifully arranged, you can tell Elaine has really spent time choosing the furnishings to make it all beautiful. Nice to have a coffee maker, kettle and toaster in the lounge area, plus plentiful supplies of drinking water. You could cook for yourself if you wanted but we chose to take Elaine's recommendation for a restaurant (Kalvas) in nearby Parksville, which was very good. The towels were the softest ever, same with the bathrobes, a real luxury feel. Toiletries were provided in the bathroom, plus cotton buds, cotton wool - Elaine really has thought of everything. There are two double bedrooms but if you are only two people the second one does not get rented out so you don't have to share. A chocolate each by the bedside was a lovely touch. We were getting the 7.45 am ferry from Nanaimo (about 20 mins drive away) so we asked if we could have a 6 am breakfast - no problem at all and a delicious spread of fruit and yoghurt, warm blueberry muffins, fruit juice, plus bread to toast, cereals and real coffee - all delivered right on time. All in all, excellent value for money, real luxury. Would not hesitate to go back - thank you!

We highly recommend staying at the Country Bay Manor B&B. We are a family of three visitors 50+. We could feel the calm wash over us as we entered the Country Bay Manor’s piece of paradise at Nanoose Bay. The property is spectacular and Elaine is a welcoming, thoughtful and gracious host. We really enjoyed Elaine’s sumptuous breakfasts, including orange juice, French pressed coffee, fresh fruit, yogurt, muffins, etc. Nanoose Bay Manor B&B is well appointed and including cozy robes, luxurious beds, soft cotton linens and ample pillows. There is a cozy sitting room with a beautiful view of the bay and weather permitting, a lovely patio from which to enjoy the peaceful ambiance As for modern conveniences…you won’t be disappointed...there’s Wifi, TV’s in every room and a couple of DVD players. If you are wanting to BBQ, there’s a very nice stainless steel grill which is great! This place is for you if you’re looking to be close to the action but at the same time off the beaten track. It has spectacular gardens, great plant variety, water views, kayaking on a river rock beach just feet from your room. We really loved hanging out with Elaine’s dogs Bella and Larry. We will definitely recommend this B&B to our friends and family. Thanks Elaine for the hospitality!

My husband and I needed a getaway vacation and decided Vancouver Island was the place to go. We stayed at Country Bay Manor, which is located at Nanoose Bay. The location was central for us to enjoy the communities of Parksville and Nanaimo. The house is clean, elegant and charming, yet warm and inviting. Our hostess, Elaine was gracious and accommodating. I especially enjoyed the morning glory muffins, fruit salad, and yogurt that was served for breakfast. We were well looked after and was provided with information about the area. We will definitely be recommending this B&B to our friends and family and will be back ourselves. Thanks Elaine for the hospitality!

We just got back from our extended Canada Day long weekend trip with our two boys and already want to return to Elaine's superb B&B. We all had such an amazing time. Starting with the warm welcome from Elaine, walking through her beautiful garden, stunning view from your private uber clean suite. Everything has been set with lots of love. Elaine thought of everything. The beds were super comfortable, we slept really well. Elaine brings her homemade breakfast right into your suite, each day she surprised us with a new yummy goodness. My boys and husband had such a good time. Our youngest could not stop playing with the three dogs, a cat, some chicken (even little Bambie came out to play) and had the hardest time leaving them behind. Our oldest loved his Kayak (courtesy of the ever so kind Elaine) session followed by roasting a "few" S'mores by the firepit. Words can not describe this wonderful Country Bay Manor B&B .... you got to experience it yourself. Step back and relax. Can't wait to return. Thank YOU Elaine for giving us this wonderful experience and fond memories.

I stayed for two nights to attend a poetry workshop in the vicinity. Elegantly designed and exquisitely decorated property opening up to the bay. Immaculate rooms and very comfortable beds. The living room faces the water and has microwave, water boiler, teas and coffees. Freshly cut flowers on tables; rose bushes and flower beds front and back. The owner, Elaine, is a charming and attentive host who spares no effort to make you comfortable. A perfect base to explore the natural wonders and hiking trails of the area.
