“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here two nights and are so happy we did. Darlene is super friendly she makes you feel right at home the minute you walk in the door. The room we stayed in had an ensuite, fantastic view of the garden and of the bay. A comfy bed and a super quiet location made for a peaceful sleep. Darlene's homemade breakfast was great both mornings and it was handy to have a local to talk to about great things to do in the area before you set out for the day. I hope more people review this b&b as it deserves to be up there.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

We stayed here at the beginning of June 2012 for one night as we had just flown in from Europe and didnt want to drive all the way to the West Coast of Vancouver Island the same day, so Nanaimo was selected as an overnight resting place to get over the jet lag!
It turned out to be a great choice.
The twin bedded room was very comfortable and we had a private bathroom fully equipped with toiletries. We found bars and chocolates in the room when we arrived, which was also a nice touch.
Breakfast was a fruit feast, with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries + home made pastries - I could have stayed longer just for the breakfasts.
...and the garden!! Wow! Darlene really does an amazing job with her garden. It's beautiful, with a fountain and stream, flowering shrubs and much more. Great place to sit outside when the weather is good.
The house is also walking distance from the seafront and we spent the next morning having a pleasant stroll on the beach.
Definitely a place to come back to (just remember to take your shoes off when you come into the house)

This B&B is a bargain with you getting more than you pay for. The room is clean, the bed king size and comfortable and the breakfast basic but it was highlighted by herbs and strawberries from her garden. The owner loves her garden and spends most of her time working there and it shows. The upstairs rooms and the dining room will have a view of the water and it is about a block or so from the water.
