“A superb location, brilliant accommodation, and a perfect host”
Reviewed September 16, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Art Sea Cottage is in a great location, a short walk from the beach front, with your own driveway for off road parking and great sea views. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable and very well laid out. Pauline is the perfect host and the breakfasts brought to the apartment each morning are superb. I would have no hesitation in recommending Art Sea Cottage to other visitors to the area. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

“Centrally located, cute cottage”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I spent 3 weeks at the Art Sea Cottage and was very happy with my stay. It is well appointed with everything you need for comfort, including a kitchenette.

The location could not have worked out better for me - in a beautiful quiet neighborhood but easy access (by car) to Nanaimo, Parksville, Port Alberni and Campbell River. I took day trips around much of the island and returned to my home-away-from-home for a good night's sleep without the hassle of changing accommodations.

Within very easy walking distance (less than 2 blocks) is a pebble beach where I was able to swim whenever I wanted - a super plus to me!

I would return without the slightest hesitation.

“Quiet and comfortable”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Impeccably clean and inviting. Self contained suite with everything you need...including coffee cream in a good sized fridge.

The view is relaxing and patio chairs are comfy for morning coffee. Nearby Access to beach walking. Be aware of changing tides if you are thinking of checking out the interesting edges of the sea.

I hope we have an opportunity to return

“Lovely stay with a lovely view”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Art Sea Cottage a lot, it's pleasantly quiet in Lantzville. From the cottage you've got a beautiful view on Georgia Strait and the cottage itself is very comfortable. Pauline offers tasteful breakfasts, which give you the energy to explore Lantzville and its surroundings.

Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The space is decorated so perfectly with a lovely view of the water across the street. The neighborhood is quiet and my mom and I really relaxed here! Pauline is so kind and prepares a delicious breakfast. If we needed a place in this location, we wouldn't hesitate to return! Thank you, Pauline! You have a very lovely place!

“Excellent ”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just spent a very nice weekend here. Great sea view, close to a beach and walking distance to a nice restaurant and pub. The room was large, clean and nicely appointed. Pauline was very nice and helpful and the breakfasts delish. The rates are amazing and loved the bunnies, hummingbirds and quail. Such a nice place.
