About this listing
Bright, new, central, and spacious! Our downstairs suite is perfect for your stay in the Harbour City. Close to everything and as quiet and peaceful as it gets. Large forested back yard with a 6 person hot tub and outdoor covered gazebo/gas fire pit!
Serene and quiet backyard - property backs up onto a largely treed area. Soaking in the hot tub overlooking the forest is the perfect way to relax. We have a boat so inquire about charter trips on the ocean with our 42 foot Canoe Cove or just a fun day on the lake with our 18 foot speed boat! (pricing depends on length of excursion and what activities are requested)
We have a 2 year old upstairs with us so we are very family friendly!
Private entrance so come and go as you please. Enter from the rear of the house. Parking is in the front and there's tons of room.
Interaction with guests
We live here so we're around if needed! Ask for anything, we're here to help. We were born and raised here in Nanaimo so we know the city, and the entire island, like the back of our hands.
Other things to note
We have a sofa bed couch that lives in the next room over. Upon request we can have it set up for additional guests. It's perfect for kids.
You can get to Victoria quite easily (1.5 hours) or go skiing in the Comox Valley (1.5 hours) or visit the world-renowned Tofino West Coast (3 hours). Vancouver is a 20 minute float plane ride, or a 1.5 hour scenic ferry ride away.
Absolutely no parties. Seeing as we have a wee-one upstairs with us, late-night noise isn't welcome. If you'd like to take an evening soak in the hot tub, feel free! 10:30pm is the cut-off time and please be cognizant of your noise level.
Smoking is not permitted on the premises.
The hot tub stays off to conserve energy. If you plan to use it, please let us know in advance so we can turn it on for you before your arrival.
No shoes in the house - we want the hardwood floors to stay in great shape for all future guests.

My wife Danika and I are natives to Nanaimo. We have both moved all over the west coast but love calling this city our home. We first became friends in grade 4 and stayed in touch over the years after high-school. In 2009 we realize we were perfect for each other and in 2012 we got married in our back yard! In March 2014 we welcomed our boy, Elliot, into the world and have been kept on our toes since!
We love the outdoors - hiking, boating and camping to name a few!
While staying with us, don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything or have any questions about your surroundings. Or, if you're looking for a private get away, we won't be seen - just let us know!
We look forward to meeting you!
-Danika, Nolan, Elliot
