    My place is close to parks, two town centres, restaurants and dining. It's a short drive to a lot of beautiful locations. You’ll love the suite because of the kitchenette, the light, the comfy bed, and the cosiness. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry dog friends.
    A newly renovated studio suite independent from the main house. Easy access entry. A three piece bathroom. Kitchenette with small fridge, single burner induction cook top and toaster oven. Tassimo machine, regular coffee pot and micowave. King size bed, love seat, a lounge chair, café table and stools. Electric fireplace. Acid washed concrete floor and industrial design kitchen and details. Lots of natural light from Sun Tunnels, multi windows and western exposure. Parking right in front of the suite. No steps.
    We are within walking distance of French Creek Marina/beach/pub and a short drive to 3 different golf courses. Commbs/Goats on the Roof is 10 minute drive away, and there are 4 gorgeous beaches close by. We live on a quiet road but are still close to Parksville and Qualicum. We are surrounded by big fabulous trees and there is a lovely secluded walking trail just around the corner.

    Here is your chance to stay in newly built beautiful cozy Tiny Home. Built with love this home has everything you need for a fun and unique experience.
    My Tiny Home is nestled in the trees amongst my large property in Departure Bay. You can park your car right in front of the Tiny Home and enjoy privacy.
    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.
  • This is a really cute Tiny House that has been well constructed and thoughtfully laid out. In a great location for Nanaimo and situated just perfectly to get sun all day long.

    Sj2020-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the neatest places I have lived in. It is a perfect get away (and for quarantining in these trying times). Close to the beach ( of which there is a zen view from the windows on that side) and a small "mountain" for walks, and uphill roads for cycling (not for the faint hearted) in every direction. I found everything I needed for cooking and there is even a radio for music. Marty responded quickly whenever I needed anything extra. I loved my stay here. Brenda

  • Debra’s home is incredible. We arrived in the dark but she had left the lights on for us and gave us clear instructions on how to get into the suite. She left a bottle of wine and bagels with cream cheese for the morning! The suite was spotless and we even joked that the bathroom was nicer than the Tigh-Na-Mara spa we had just been to (it really is!). The outdoor space was really nice too, with a fire pit under the stars. Thanks for everything, we would love to come back!

    Kristine2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries after a busy holiday season. Our host Debra was very friendly and her communication is top notch. The space is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The little touches like a bottle of wine, bagels and cream cheese are a nice touch and shows that she takes pride in her guests having an amazing stay. Be sure to walk around the local area. The fully fenced yard is great for bringing your dog. We wish we could have stayed longer but we wouldn’t hesitate to book here again. Thanks Debra!

    Craig2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous space, decor and location. Bathtub and metalwork were the highlights! I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much!

    Adam2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a gem!!! We loved the location, the fenced back yard for our dog, the fire pit and provided firewood. Inside, we were greeted with a welcome bottle of wine and a sparkling clean and very comfortable space. Debra met us in person and made sure we got in ok. She was responsive throughout our stay. It was everything we hoped for and will return.

    Bright airy quiet house minutes walk from the Englishman's River wildlife reserve estuary, Community Park and Beach, Shopping and everything Parksville has to offer. 30 minute drive from Nanaimo and the ferries to Vancouver and ferries to some of our beautiful islands. Also a great rest stop before turning left to cross the island to Ucluelet and Tofino.
    Fully furnished bedroom, double bed, bedside tables, desk with chair and closet. Fully kitted out shared kitchen and full bathroom. Kitchen opens up to a furnished deck overlooking garden in a park like setting. Sunset Boulevard is almost a secret enclave incredibly close to the city but feels like living in the country. Minutes to the Englishman's River Estuary and Nature Reserve which is virtually my back yard. Every time I walk early in the morning with my dog I give thanks that I am lucky enough to live within touching distance of all of this beauty. And then there's the ocean!!!
    My house is situated in a cul de sac with 5 other homes occupied by mostly adults, couples and singles. My immediate neighbours are a family with 3 lovely well behaved daughters and baby boy, another with 2 teenage sons. All residents have chosen this location not just for its proximity to the Wildlife Reserve, but also because it is a quiet respectful haven.
  • Nancy is a charming host with cosy, peaceful home close to walking trails and the beach. Although the home is a bit older, the room is comfortable and well-appointed and the whole place is neat, clean and full of personality. Popeye (her doggo) is the perfect co-host and will win the hearts of any dog-lovers with his boundless energy for fetching his ball. I'm very glad I got to meet Nancy and stay in her welcoming home!

    Sean2020-03-19T00:00:00Z

There's a lot to see around and you can take a walk around parksville (pretty close to the beach as well). The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom were clean and nicely designed :) Definitely one of my favorite Airbnbs I've been to. Highly recommended!

The space was so beautiful and homey, it always seemed to be filled with sunshine. Mel & Rich did an amazing job of making us feel welcome, they even left us a little basket of snacks! We will definitely be back!! Thank you!!!

Free parking on site. A 5 minute drive (or easy 25 minute walk) to the village pub (which serves very good and reasonably priced food) - and a 20 minute drive to the ferry at Departure Bay; a perfect location for us. Mel was a very responsive host and we loved all the thoughtful touches, like cosy blankets in the lounge for cold evenings and TV snacks! We felt very much at home here and will certainly be back!

Dave and Patsy are very nice people and they showed all the nice spots in the house and about nearby places. It was a great experience spending a couple of nights there.

  • This has been the nicest Airbnb I have EVER stayed at! The hosts were super sweet and caring. They had every detail taken care of. Their house was super clean and had everything you could need in the kitchen and bedrooms. Their master bath was amazing! Very fancy and clean. The view from here is out of this world! My mother in law spent most of the day just enjoying it and the deer that hung out right in the front yard. It felt like a fairy tale! I was also working on this trip, and the private office was huge and had a comfy chair and high speed internet. 6/5 stars. Can’t give it enough stars. Would definitely come back here again!

  • Dave & Patsy were great hosts. They were very helpful with advice about local things to see and do. The house was wonderfully furnished and equipped. The view from the patio overlooking Nanoose Bay was a constant source of enjoyment. The picture on the website doesn't do it justice. We really enjoyed our stay. I wish we could of stayed for a couple of weeks. There is so much to do on the island.

  • Elisabeth is a SUPERHOST! She was absolutely fantastic to deal with. Great communication. The space she had was beautiful and much better than I had anticipated. Walking distance to one of the largest shopping malls on Vancouver Island but when you are at her place it i feels like you are staying in the countryside. LOVED IT!

    Jennifer2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 3 nights (Feb. 2020) Had a wonderful visit! Elisabeth fired up the wood stove for our arrival and big surprise was the grand piano! Fully equipped kitchen and soaker tub were appreciated also. Just a bit of heads up for those who really need "quiet" There is a bit of traffic noise during the day, but eases up during the evening. Sound level was fine inside on the lower floor. But you may not find it very quiet outside. It worked fine for us b/c we were mostly out exploring the Island during the day. Overall, very nice stay and good value for the use of the separate well equipped cottage!

    Michael2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth is a fabulous host. She was warm and accomodating of some last minute changes we needed on a work trip. It is a beautiful sunny home in a quiet wooded lot. You won't believe its right in town like this. Her kitchen is fully set up with the little touches that let you really cook away from home. It is an absolutely lovely space and I look forward to coming back.

    Jodie2020-02-01T00:00:00Z

    Beautiful, well maintained character home (circa 1946). Ten minute walk to Parksville beach, five minutes to downtown, shopping and restaurants. Large fenced back yard (pet friendly). Airtight wood stove (wood supplied). Recently updated kitchen with all new appliances.
    Very close to town, private back deck and big back yard with a garden.

  • Our stay at Steven and Elaine's place was very relaxing and enjoyable. We got the whole house to ourselves as well as a nice big back yard for our pooch. The house is only 10 min walk to a beautiful seawall along parksville beach and is easy to find from the highway. They left so many nice little treats and thoughtful add on's that we did not expect and really enjoyed. We loved our time there and will absolutely stay again ! Thanks for a great weekend :)

The value is awesome, Steven responded very quickly to all my questions and the space was exactly as it appears in the photos. I recommend it and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

  • We really enjoyed the special touches Brian and Charlotte put into their unit from the well equipped kitchen to the cheerful decor. We liked their ecological approach from the water-saver toilet to the compost and recycling buckets. With the dark and day blinds and the quiet neighbourhood we slept well. There was a gas station and grocery store within an easy drive, as well as good access to the scenic oceanside drive.

  • Last minute booking was made with prompt response. Absolutely gorgeous view, sauna, and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay! Don’t hesitate on this one if you’re lucky enough to have the opportunity.

    Kathy2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Carol made everything about my last minute booking, and stay, a breeze. I was surprised to find the suite was even more spacious than anticipated, the expansive ocean view more breathtaking, and all the special, added touches made by Carol had me feeling like I never wanted to leave. I was especially appreciative of this rental being offered during a pandemic, as a safe haven which included a private entrance and keypad lock, with my needing to overnight after unexpected minor surgery at the hospital nearby. During my stay at Carol's suite, I was wrapped in bliss. I've no doubt this awaits all future guests too.

    Marly2020-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of staying at Carol’s amazing AirBNB. It has a beautiful small sauna, an incredible view, a phenomenally comfortable bed, and amazing snacks and drinks available. Carol allowed us to check out late, which was SO appreciated to accommodate my late afternoon doctor’s appointment. I can’t wait to stay here again!

    Sarah2020-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Carol’s place is beautiful and the view is spectacular. We had a evening bbq out in the patio. Watched movies on the big screen tv and had a peaceful relaxing evening. I would definitely stay again!

    The suite is very large, recently refurbished, has its own access with own kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining area and laundry facilities. The suite is located in a quiet road just 750m from Departure Bay beach front. The suite backs on to the Nanaimo golf course, which is open all year round. It is less than a 10 minutes drive from the Departure Bay Ferry terminal and just a few minutes from local shops, take away restaurants and supermarkets.
    The suite is separate from but below part of the main house that is owned and occupied by a quiet young family therefore the suite would not be suitable for late night party goers. You will hear every day living above you occasionally, but for the most part we are out of the house or in different areas of the house that are not above the suite. There is a covered parking spot for your car up the driveway, and a table and chairs outside for you to enjoy the beautiful Island weather.
    The neighbourhood is quiet and secluded, with easy access to local amenities and 10 minutes drive from down town. There are lots of scenic areas, beaches and coastal walks within the immediate area just short drives from the house. There is a new coffee shop on the beachfront that turns into a pub in the evenings that is easy to get to with a stunning view of the sea. Our backyard backs onto the most prestigious golf course in Nanaimo, so if you are an avid golfer, this is the place for you!
  • One of the best Airbnb hosts I’ve had. Well equipped and excellent value!

  • This is a great place. Very good people, very responsive, and make sure we were always OK. They even left a card wishing my daughter (we were there for a competition) good luck! Very thoughtful. The place was also very clean, trust it more than a hotel! They also left coffee grinds so I made coffee every morning.

    Jeremy2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • The basement suite was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there very much. The location is great. Kari was very accommodating and helpful when we needed it but we had privacy as well. It was very nice and clean and the basics were all available right in the suite. We would stay there again.

    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.
  • We had a great stay at Craig and Tricia’s, easy check in, clean, comfortable bed, great deck! Once you get used to the driveway parking is no issue (sometimes the neighbours aren’t home and you can pull straight through 😉).

    Brian2020-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • 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

  • This place was amazing. ‘Inn the Estuary’ had a stunning view of the Estuary, eagles, birds and even a baby sea lion found its way in there. Harold was always kind and checking in on us as we came and went but was never intrusive. Very kind and considerate man. Beautifully appointed suite. Highly recommend!!

  • This is a stunning property, surrounded by nature with peaceful views and total privacy. The space is contemporary and very attractive. Everything is spotless. The king bed is especially lovely and is ultra comfortable. The bathtub on the private, covered deck, has a view of the estuary and the forest. This was a great touch and made this place quite special. We were greeted by the owner and builder, Harold, who was so polite and helpful suggesting places to hike and photograph. We had a wonderful visit and would definitely return.

  • We had a fantastic stay over New Year's and can easily say that the View Suite is a "must stay" if visiting Vancouver Island, no matter what the weather might be. Although there are 2 TV's in the suite, we didn't need them during the day, as the amazing views from the place were entertainment enough. Some of our other favourite features were access to 3 outdoor patio spaces (one with BBQ), the super comfortable King bed, the fireplace, the well stocked kitchen, the overall style and cleanliness of the space and getting to chat with Harold about how this unique place came to be. Check in/out was stress-free, and the location is easy to find with lots of parking. We look forward to staying here again.

  • Book here. You won't regret it. Absolutely peaceful, serene, comfortable, and clean. A one-of-a-kind place. You feel like you are waking up in untouched wilderness. Almost don't want to go out because the place itself is so lovely.

  • Beautiful spot. An opportunity to get close to nature while still being close to amenities. The view is breathtaking and we could stare at it all day. Ask Harold if you can go kayaking if they are around - it's a special experience! The king size bed is also lovely. Harold also shares his local knowledge of the area and will help you find beautiful walks and lookouts. Enjoy!

  • We had one of our employees stay here while in town on business and the hosts were very understanding and helpful. They were very fast with replies and the place was clean, quiet, easy to find. Definitely be staying here either for work or personal in the future.

  • Debbie and Henri's place is bright and modern with many little touches like fresh fruit, muffins, and juice for breakfast. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful.

    Julia2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were very welcoming, with thoughtful touches, like tea, coffee, muffins, and fruit for our breakfast the next day. The place was immaculate and clean and beautifully decorated. The location had easy access to the beach (we enjoyed a sunrise walk along the beach watching the sea-lions feed). Location is in a nice private and quiet area, but within only a few minutes’ drive of the shopping and amenities of Parksville.

  • Debbie and Henri have done an amazing job creating a very welcoming and comfortable suite in a most beautiful area of Oceanside. It has to be one of our favourite Airbnb’s! The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped. Love that fridge! The bed is very comfortable and beautifully made with quality linens, quilts and pillows. (black-out blinds for sleeping! ) The living room is cozy, with comfortable seating and up-to-date television technology. A Christmas tree and tasteful decorations created a lovely ambiance over the holiday season! (a real treat!) After a busy day discovering the surrounding areas, it was an absolute pleasure to return back to the suite in the evenings. Debbie and Henri left us fresh bakery muffins, a bowl of fruit, coffee, teas and cream. Just lovely for our first morning! And I have to give the hosts maximum points for the exemplary cleanliness. The suite was spotless! We recommend this Airbnb suite for anyone that travels to the area of Parksville, BC. We’ll definitely be back!
