An absolutely wonderfully charming experience for our first time at a B&B. Our hosts, Barb & Jack were welcoming and had many interesting stories to share. The accommodations were very clean, beautifully decorated, and the food was delicious; Barb is an artiste!
Situated very close to the ocean, we enjoyed several lovely walks even in the cool October mornings. Right next door to Nanaimo, Ele's is a perfect location to all amenities.

This B & B has it all . Comfort, close to the sea, quiet, and a breakfast to die for. A menu is set out the night before to check out, and Barbara prints out suggestions on what to see and do for the following day as well.
You are made to feel as a welcome friend, and can have tea or coffee and homemade cookies after a day sightseeing. Barbara and Jack treat you like friends, and will help with organising any hotels ect.
I would highly recommend their place and would go back again

What a lovely place, go there you won't be disappointed, everything is top, location, accommodation, food and above all Barbara and her husband are very nice hosts. We also loved their beautiful dog. Our only regret was to have booked only one night, we would have really enjoyed staying longer.

We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming and enjoyable experience with Barb and Jack. The quality and variety of food was outstanding. Barb is very warm and open, and we had great conversations. The room was very comfortable and the place was lovely, inside and outside, with many seating areas. Great location!

Barb’s breakfasts are amazing, both the chocolate crepes and the quiche. Her and Jack are superb hosts; great conversations and good laughs. Barb and Jack know the area well and have great suggestions. The house is wonderfully inviting, with such great books, it’s hard to leave, but then, the location is excellent! The beach is just down the street. Sea kayaking, beachcombing, and the local bar are all nearby, tucked into a cool little village called Lanzville.

And then home to a really comfortable bed ... ahhh! Perfect!
Pet friendly, too!
