This small self-contained handcrafted cottage overlooks Newcastle Island Park and anchorage. It is a 10 minute foot passenger ferry ride from Nanaimo and 5 minute walk. The cabin suits a single person or couple wanting a simple and elegant retreat. Breakfast supplies are included. At this time long-term guests are most welcome!
Small (270 sq ft) cabin on my waterfront property on Protection Island. It overlooks Newcastle Island anchorage and is surrounded by arbutus and Douglas-fir trees and meadow. The cabin has a simple kitchen and bathroom (combined), sleeping loft and sitting room. There is a double bed upstairs and a sofa which can be made up as a second bed. If one has mobility issues, the ladder to the loft may be a limiting factor. Recent guests Sam and Tei (all one word when you look it up) did a YouTube video blog on their stay at the cabin on Protection Island that gives one a flavour of a young couple’s stay at the cabin https://youtu.be/yS95dv84HOc. It is called “We moved to Nanaimo” Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, extra cleaning of surfaces will be under-taken. There will be additional time between guests occupying the cabin.
Protection Island is a lovely and friendly community where there is always somebody to help, a musical event to raise funds for a worthy cause and an appreciation for the safe, beautiful natural environment. See the Protection Island web-site for information about parks, protocol and the island.
  • My stay at Trudy's place was just what I needed to rejuvenate during the Covid19 crisis. The cabin was very cozy, had all the supplies I needed, and was a nice balance of rustic and modern. The view of the water visible from the loft bed was the perfect backdrop to fall asleep with and made my rest so peaceful. Trudy was an amazing host and provided so many extra touches like delicious smoothies in the morning and a stock of coffee & breakfast supplies that was so appreciated. She also arranged for private boat transportation for arrival, which made getting to Protection Island very easy and convenient. I should also mention that Trudy's roommate is an amazing co-host and both the ladies are just lovely, genuine, and thoughtful people. Overall an amazing stay.

  • Trudys tiny house and green garden is a perfect spot for exploring Protection Island and Newcastle Island by kayak and walking. The nature and wood around the cozy tiny house is so relaxing and the waterfront and beaches invite to lovely walks!

  • This was awesome! Beautiful view and such a cute island. Inside was amazing and super clean!

    Kiarra2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for your hospitality in your beautiful Cabin Trudy! We'll be back :-)

    Shane2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy was an outstanding host, and my stay at her place with my wife was fantastic . The place is naturally gorgeous, and Trudy made sure to add every and each special detail to make it even more splendid. I sincerely recommend her to every traveler. The cabin is cozy and quaint, and so is the island.

    Victor2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway with very purposeful design in such a unique hand-built home. Everyone in town was exceedingly friendly and went out of their way to chat and offer advice about the area. Trudy also provided wonderful hommade granola and other breakfast goods - very helpful on an island!

    Eli2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • My second visit, and amazing as usual!

    Dominik2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing 10-day stay at Trudy's place. The little cabin is gorgeous and cozy, with many nice features. The view looking out to Newcastle Island across the water is beautiful and serene. We had a great time walking around Protection Island, kayaking, exploring the trails through the tranquil forest on nearby Newcastle Island, and Nanaimo is only a 10min ferry ride away. Trudy was so thoughtful and helpful during our stay, which really made us feel at home. This place offers such a unique experience and was definitely a highlight of our trip.

    Bree's by the Sea has beautiful ocean, mountain and forest views. Perfect for a couple or small family looking for a peaceful stay in a quiet space close to nature.
  • Place is gorgeous, lovely view, very private. Very well taken care of and stocked with little thing to make your stay more comfortable. Very clean, stylish but also homey feeling. Loved watching wild life or just reading a book and listening to the waves.

    Patrick2020-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Bree’s place was so awesome I kind of don’t want anyone to know about it. The view was lovely, the Ed was so comfy, and the property was just beautiful. The place was super clean and had lots of extra touches that made the space stand out. We will definitely be back.

    Sacha2020-05-03T00:00:00Z

  • “Simple, Modern, Comfortable, Clean Studio, Perfect For Anniversary❤️” There is a nice view from the window. The room and the bath are clean. Amazing BATHTUB! Nice view of the harbour from our window. Liked this place a lot.

  • Everything was perfect.

    Minette2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The location is beautiful and all the extra thoughtful touches made it an extra special stay. I arrived to classical music playing and a warm fire going in the fireplace. There was milk, coffee, treats and snacks. Beautiful shampoos an the bath is gorgeous with the view. Curling up in the window seat (again with the view) makes this an amazing retreat-like setting. 5 star - including three beautiful deer that quietly walked by my window as I gazed at the ocean view.

    quiet and respectful is how I would describe our neighbors. The Deer and Rabbits are fun to watch and so are the Orca whales if you are lucky to be here when they pass by the house.
  • Extremely welcoming, serene, quiet and clean place to decompress and the view from the hot tub is incredible.

    Julie2020-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • I loved it and would go back. Friendly hosts, great location and very nice place.

    Joseph2020-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • We just had our second stay at Alan and Gillians place. It's such a beautiful little oasis between the clean private suite and hot tub with the fire pit out the front with a view of the water from every location with our dog on our lap!! Thank you again for a lovely stay we look forward to seeing you again in the future 🥰

    Lindsey2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and great apartment. The local parks and trails are brilliant too.

    John2020-04-11T00:00:00Z

    Wilfred2020-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had such lovely time.. there was cereal milk and juice available. They allowed me to bring my dog last minute that was lovely.. the bed was comfortable and the hot tub very relaxing..the place was very clean.. thank you for a lovely stay!

    Lindsey2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house was spotless and clean, in a remote location with unbelievable views of the ocean. The hosts invited us to join them for a fire both nights and let our dogs sit with us which made us really happy. The family is beyond accommodating and hot tub at night is one of the best star gazing experiences you’ll ever have. Being in the countryside but still only 5-10 minutes from town made for a quiet and relaxing getaway. Highly recommend it!

    Garron2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place in a super quiet neighborhood. The hot tub is nice and has a view of the ocean, the whole place was very clean, And the check in was a breeze. Thanks for having me

  • Cheryl Ann and Lori’s place is a pristine slice of forested heaven! The house was cleaned immaculately and it was evident that great effort had been given to achieve such a remarkably high level of cleanliness. Eating dinner while looking out the window at wild rabbits and deer munching on grass and leaves just a few feet away was the cherry on top of a perfect stay. Definitely recommend!

    Colleen2020-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location close to everything and friendly service

    David2020-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Cheryl Ann and Lori's place was just right for us. We came up right at the start of the COVID outbreak - we had our cruise cancelled and wanted a change of scenery. They had Lysoled everything and we felt very safe because they were so meticulous. It was so quiet and serene, just what we needed. My teen daughter and I bonded while singing Karaoke and playing MarioCart. In the morning I did yoga on the outside patio and it was amazing - looked up to the sun coming through the trees. Thank you for this refreshing time

    K2020-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time in this cabin. Everything was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was well equipped and there were also some eggs and cheese in the fridge, as well as delicious homemade muffins. The area is really quite, perfect for being in the nature. We loved the look of the house and would definitely come back again!

    Jessica2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous retreat! Clean and comfortable with many special touches. We would come back for sure.

    Lindsay2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing cabin. Everything you could ask for and so much more. Private, quiet, lovely walks and trails close by, filled with thoughtful touches. A perfect location for our ladies SPA trip....Tigh-na-mera is just up the highway. A true delight.

    Maxine2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Can not recommend enough - the hosts have gone out their way to make this such a welcoming and restful retreat in the woods!

    Emily2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here. It is so quiet and dark nestled in the trees. You can walk straight out the door and join up with numerous hiking trails. The cabin itself is near the family home but is very private, lots of thoughtful touches and a full kitchen where we cooked our dinners. Quick drive in to town too if you want food.

    Brandon2020-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wendys space is a wonderful home away from home. It is conveniently located close to departure bay in a quiet neighbourhood. The space was very very clean, and comfortable, not to mention they provide amazing amenities. I would stay there again in a heart beat.

    Brendan2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy’s place is a fabulous find: it’s very clean and one of the best stocked AirBnB’s we have stayed in. The end is super comfy and the towels are thick and luxurious. The kitchen made it possible for us to cook our own meals. During this time of global uncertainty it was wonderful to get away to a clean, safe place. We would highly recommend staying here.

    Dawn2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • “ What a wonderful experience. This space was so beautiful and so clean. The outdoor gated patio was a plus for us and our small dog! When we arrived we were pleased with the provided snacks and food. What a plus! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean, convenient and insanely comfortable stay. I would definitely stay here again!”

    Alexis2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy's place was perfect. The apartment was spacious, clean and bright. It had all the cooking amenities that we needed including spices, salt and pepper! There was also a washing machine and tumble dryer which was handy after a long walk with muddy trousers! Not too far from downtown Nanaimo, it's a lovely walk down by the harbour as the sun is setting with great beer at white sails brewery at the end of it. Would definitely stay again when we're back in vancouver island.

    Kate2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cozy spot!

    Sydney2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

  • Wendy's beach-themed suite is lovely. It's very cozy and clean, with lots of thoughtful touches. I stayed there for a couple days on a work trip, but would definitely come back for play. Thanks Wendy!

There is everything you could need there. The internet was great, and he even furnished Bath robes! Kerry is very kind and thoughtful, his place is charming, and it is a great value. We were very happy with our choice.

They have everything set from kitchen/cooking items to bed and bath supplies. The place was very clean and well put. Communication with the host was prompt and helpful.

    Maiya2020-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Gillian is an outstanding host and you can feel that she really cares. She was super enthusiastic and kind in her communications, which really was nice after several long days of travel. She had placed pieces of cake for me and left the light on since I was arriving late, and that made a difference in my experience as a guest. The place is pretty big and honestly you could eat off the floor. The bed is out of this world comfy... Thanks again.

    Samantha2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Gillian's place was super clean, comfy, and cozy! Their place was a nice walk and a short bus ride to downtown in a quiet neighbourhood. They were also very responsive and communicative. Would stay here again if we're ever back in Nanaimo. Thanks Gillian! :)

    A wonderful mix of older and new houses this mature neighborhood is safe, quite and peaceful.
    A spacious room on the main floor of the house, it is a quiet area only steps to the kitchen and washroom. The room has its own TV with cable TV and access to Netflix (account needed). Enjoy your breakfast on the covered deck over looking the ocean and watch the ferries come and go.
    Departure Bay is a family oriented neighbourhood with a mix of older and new homes,. There are many people out walking their dogs or pulling their kayak down to the beach for an evening paddle. There is a ball/soccer field, tennis courts and water park 1 block away, at the beach there is a grassy park with a playground, washrooms and picnic tables. There is also a short Sea Wall with many nice benches to sit and enjoy the view. Departure Bay is a place where people from throughout the city come to hangout eat food and relax near the beach. Enjoy an afternoon coffee, beer or glass of wine at the Drip, an upscale coffee shop across the street from the beach. It is one of those places that when you drive by you say, wow would I ever like to live here... come and discover.
  • For all those travelling to Nanaimo, I highly recommend this place. Its extremely close to the beach and is an awesome and comfortable house! Marty is extremely kind and understanding. I stayed for a month but had to move my dates as I was delayed over a week, and Marty just changed the dates for me immediately when I told him my situation. Marty is a wonderful host and I couldn’t have asked for a better stay.

    Michael2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

    Just renovated! My place is close to parks, restaurants and long lake. From here you are less than 10 min from enjoying a day at the beach, or the lake. Downtown Nanaimo is a short drive away. Use this as a home base while exploring Vancouver Island. My place is good for couples, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets). An additional $25 fee per stay will be added for pets this will come as a modification to the rental and needs to be paid before check in.
    3 Bedroom main floor of house, full kitchen, washer and dryer. Seperate entrance about 1200 sq/ft Dogs are welcome there is a green space out back that is good for kids and animals(with an additional fee). We offer WiFi and Netflix. We also have a portable air conditioner available.
    We are centrally located near shopping and Restaurants. A quick trip to the ocean or the lake. You can explore the island from here, Tofino on the west coast, Mt Washington for a day of skiing, the beautiful beaches of Parksville, Bungy jumping at Wild Play, World famous Chemainus murals or a trip down to Victoria our capitol city. We also have world class scuba diving, excellent fishing, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking.
  • This is absolutely the best accommodation I have ever had. It is newly renovated, clean, quiet, private. Everything is just there for your convenience. Feel comfortable as your own home. Most important is the value! Thinking about you own the whole main floor with 3 bedroom+2 washroom+1 living room +1 fully equipped kitchen with the money you would have HALF from other hosts. I will definitely choose Craig's home next time.

    Xiang Fei2020-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Indeed a Home away from Home... with everything you need and more! - like enjoying the fresh air while sipping your morning coffee out on the deck, listening to the birds, and watching the rays of sunshine through the trees. - oh, and we watched the purple crocuses bloom! We had a very enjoyable stay.. lots of room to unwind, comfy beds and pillows, lots of clean towels, very strong water pressure, adequate kitchen basics, entertainment options for the whole family, and sightseeing tips. Craig was very helpful and quick to respond. Again, thank you for letting us stay in your home!

    Paula2020-03-22T00:00:00Z

    Joy2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • A great place if you have a group of people as they have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - well laid out. Large king size and queen beds and a very well stocked kitchen. The place was very clean and pretty convenient to Nanaimo. The driveway is steep and a bit challenging to park in the dark but we knew that going in. I would definitely recommend Craig and Tricia’s place.

The house is gorgeously built and maintained by the owners with all the amenities that you could possibly need, including a fully stocked kitchen, beautiful lofted reading nook, and fresh towels in the bathrooms. It was the perfect place to find your zen as there was plenty of places carved out for hanging out. The deck was much appreciated, and the sunrise was breathtaking. I would highly recommend this home for couples or small groups to unwind, bbq and relax!

  • Lovely quiet little oasis. Comfortable and cozy. I really enjoyed my stay. Thank you Diane.

    Claire2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Waking up to the view out the kitchen window was my favourite part of our stay. The kitchen is great for making home made meals rather than eating out all the time. I loved the layout and cleanliness of our suite. Loved our time here.

    Jennifer2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 night at Diane’s place. It was no issues at all. There are a comfy bed and a nicely equipped kitchen. Very good communication. Very nice host. Highly recommend to any guests.

    Maximus2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is ideal for active people, who want a simple clean place to rest and a pleasant start to the morning with the view and a coffee. Must be tolerant of uneven ground, and somewhat tricky parking, but good value.

    Brian2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. A tranquil neighbourhood with ocean views and a nice walking trail a few blocks away. There was a helpful binder with key information and suggestions for local restaurants and shops. A clean, cute little suite!

  • Cara was there to greet me when I tot there asked me about myself, told me a bit about herself and then gave me alone time. She was quick to answer a text when I had a question and very quiet upstairs. It was exactly what I needed. Thank you

    Michelle2020-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our airbnb experience was enhanced by the warm and relaxing space Cara means for you to have. To unwind we sat in the hot tub, at night doing this was serene. Our generous host was accommodating and thoughtful to check in on our needs. Relaxing by a fireplace is the perfect thing to do, don't you think? You can do this here. There's privacy and accessibility to have and get what you need here. All at cost so, so inexpensive. Thank you Cara.

    Raymond2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed my 11 days in Nanaimo at this private suite. I chose it for the location as I wanted to be able to walk to downtown and the waterfront. The suite was roomy, comfortable, cozy and I enjoyed the hot tub in the back yard.

    Mervin2020-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cara was helpful and incredibly generous during our stay. She was friendly when we crossed paths and helped us with the hot tub buttons. The space was plenty large enough for two and was clean. Bed is super comfy!

  • Cara's suite is clean, well-equipped and large enough for a 4-person family. We spent many hours at the cozy common area watching TV. The patio is also very large and a great place to hang out or BBQ . There is ample parking as well. Overall, we were very happy with our experience and thank Cara for her hospitality.

Also, we really enjoyed their beautiful garden! This is a must stay if you are in that area, couldn't imagine being somewhere else.

    Hari2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Sophia's place was perfect. Sophia and Kim met each of us and introduced us to their home. They were delightful hosts, warm and interesting while also very respectful of privacy. Their home is spacious, spotless, with special touches throughout that readily make you feel at home. We stayed for a couple nights with the second day a business retreat for a small group - location was ideal. Beds were great. Two bathrooms were a real plus. The location was close enough to Nanaimo downtown that we were in for a couple meals within 15 minutes. The peaceful feeling upon each return was felt by all. We hope to return again.

    Tracy2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

    Allen2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Gloria and Marty are very welcoming hosts who like to hear and share experiences from all over the world. The place is just a few steps away from Departure Bay. A bus stop is right around the corner. Nanaimo as it is might not be the most exciting town but apart from that the small accommodation you‘re in is just fine to do whatever you’re after. Cheers Tim

    Tim2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Martys and Glorias place was great. The communication with him beforehand was always fast and he provided much help. Unfortunately I didn't met him in person during my stay but Gloria was also an awesome and warm host. She gave me quick rides and also showed me a little around when there was time. The room and the house are as described. Everything was very clean and even tea and coffee for breakfast were provided. The room felt for me even a bit more cosy than expected! Sure, the place is not located downtown and you need to take the bus to get there but instead of this the beach is only 1 minute walk away. Amazing! I highly recommend this place!

    Very Private cute 450 square foot 1 bedroom cottage with covered patio backing on a park, surrounded by trees and in a beautiful, natural, Gulf Island setting. Has a full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer and sitting/living area. Comes with a covered private parking spot.
    The cabin is very private and nicely secluded. My guests have really appreciated the feeling of being tucked in the woods and yet near to amenities. It's a magical spot backing on a park, lots of birds and nature. It's beautiful and serene!

  • This space was phenomenal, and I can see why Carmen is a superhost. The cabin was everything we expected and more — beautiful, cozy, and nestled in wilderness. Carmen went above and beyond in answering our questions in a timely manner, giving us directions and tips, and offering us a few extras when we forgot beach towels. If we could give 6 stars we would. Thank you for such a pleasant trip - we’ll be back in a heartbeat.

Self contained guesthouse, full kitchen, three piece washroom & in-suite laundry. Close proximity to parks, shops & dining. Easy access to the Island highway. Minutes to all city amenities. Long Lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking & the best sandy beach around!
    The garden patio of the guest house and the main house have some separation but don’t have any gates in-between them. We have a very friendly, medium sized French bull dog named Karl that may come and say hi when you stay. You are more than welcome to take a walk through the gardens to our private dock and enjoy the view of the crystal clear waters of Long Lake. We are next door to a beautiful lakeside park with two public docks and large sandy beach with a roped off swimming area. Loudon Park at Long Lake offers picnic tables, a small playground for children and lake side walking trail. The lake is great for swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing or just floating around in the sun. We have three boys ages 10, 9 and 2. Although you have complete privacy and the guest house is detached, if you take a walk through the gardens to the dock you may run into one of them playing in the yard.
