This place was amazing! Great bang for buck! Not far from Parksville and Nanoose, and a quick drive to Nanaimo. Would stay here over any of the local hotels anytime (and we've tried most as we visit family regularly). Steve was extremely accommodating, friendly, communicative and helpful. The place was extremely clean, comfortable, private and roomy! This visit was family focused so we didnt have much time for leisure activities. My one regret is that we weren't able to take Steve up on his offer of Kayaking out in the bay :( Our favourite part was the huge windows overlooking a sweeping yard where rabbits played and his wonderful and friendly dog Jack roamed during the day. (Jack was lovely, 10/10 would pet again ;) ) Far enough from the city to be away from all the noise. The night sky was beautiful, we spent a lot of time gazing at the super clear starscape (something you dont get from the city). Definitely recommended!

This is a qiuet, relaxing, get away location. The owners are welcoming and helpful. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable.

We really enjoyed our stay at Steve's place. It was as described and Steve was very welcoming upon our arrival and gave us a great suggestion for dinner (located on the water with a great view). We were looking at properties to purchase and had a tight schedule so we were gone most of the time and mostly slept there. It was a great value. Thanks Steve!

A great quiet place to stay that's between Nanaimo, Parksville, and close enough to Ucluelet + Tofino for day trips. The host had great advice for what to do and our guided evening kayak session was a highlight. The home is clean and private. We had a wonderful stay.

Vor der Ankunft: Die Kommunikation mit Roné war super und unkompliziert. Sie hat uns perfekt die Anfahrt beschrieben und auf ihren Hund hingewiesen. Check-in: Begrüßt wurden wir von Jack, einem wirklich guten Wachhund, der aber nur bellt und ansonsten freundlich ist und sich direkt streicheln lässt. Roné hat uns in dem Basement herumgeführt, dass komplett für uns zur Verfügung stand. Aufenthalt: Wir haben das AirBnB leider fast nur als Schlafgelegenheit benutzt, da wir nur kurz da waren und vieles von Vancouver Island sehen wollten. Aber diese Unterkunft bietet einem auch die Gelegenheit länger zu bleiben und zu entspannen. Uns standen das gesamte Basement (Schlafzimmer, Wohnzimmer mit Pantry-Küche ohne Herd,Badezimmer) und die davor liegende Terrasse zur Verfügung. Roné ist sehr freundlich und hat uns einiges in der Umgebung empfohlen. Wir empfehlen Roné Unterkunft definitiv weiter.

I am a PE teacher and my wife is an Interior Designer. We live in a quiet area and love the beach and trails of the Nanoose and Parksville areas. We enjoy helping others see the great sights that we love to see ourselves. We love to travel and always return home appreciating where we live as well.
