Clean, modern and comfy

  • 4 of 5

Jill was a pleasure to talk to and an excellent host. The property was in a great location on the fringe of downtown. It was very clean and had everything you could need to make the place a home. For the price I would stay here again. Things to consider; there are a ton of stairs (3 flights), there was no A.C. but lots of fans, the pictures are a little deceiving in that there is no view. None of these are deal breakers for myself and I still believe this place is a good place to stay, just more knowledge for everyone. Thanks again Jill, hope to see you in the future

Wonderful Vacation Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little vacation apartment in the heart of Nanaimo. My husband and I stayed here for just under a week while visiting with family, and it provided us with a comfortable home away from home with the privacy we wanted. It is close to downtown and short drive from larger services (grocery stores). The decor is modern and the kitchen was very well equipped and handy. Having the laundry was great as we were on week 2 of our vacation and we could wash all of our clothes. The owners / managers were very accommodating and kind. We did find the many stairs a bit cumbersome as we had a lot of suitcases but again Jill and her husband were very hospitable and helped us get unloaded and loaded. Highly recommended!

Lovely Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

After a few missed turns we found the condo and were so pleasantly surprieed! Warm reception, even though we arrived late, exquisite decor and everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Close to all we wished to see in downtown Nanaimo including the Old Quarter, the Harbour and great dining.

Not a true B & B - we had to head to a nearby market to purchase food for breakfast, although coffee and spices were available in the unit.

The stairs could be a problem for some - we regarded them as a chance to work off all the great food we indulged in!

Overall, I would highly recommend and will stay again if we return to Nanaimo for an overnight stay!

Attending a conference in Nanaimo

  • 4 of 5

Two coworkers and I were attending a 3 day conference in Nanaimo and we wanted somewhere to stay downtown, but not necessarily a hotel. It was a great location, 6min walk to the conference centre and a short walk to the habourfront. Vic and Jill were very helpful in recommending places to eat and places to checkout.

Beauty of a location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a couple of months while taking a course at VIU. It was a perfect accomodation. Right in the heart of downtown Nanaimo, with all kinds of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Nice high end furnishings in the condo and Jill and Vic have it decorated beautifully. ( I still miss the bed).

City Center Condo

  • 3 of 5

This condo is located centrally to downtown Nanaimo. It is well-decorated, comfortable, reasonably priced, and has everything necessary for a comfortable stay. However, I did not feel the description was accurate enough. There are about 44 steps to climb/descend each time you go out. This is a major consideration for anyone having difficulty with stairs. Also, distracting, is the fact that the only view from inside the condo is an outside stairwell with a small rock garden. The pictures (such as the one above) would lead one to think that that there are large picture windows to the outside. This is not the case. For these reasons, I probably would not use this condo again. The owner was considerate in permitting us to cut our rental time short due to the misunderstandings.
