“Great hosts and location!”
Reviewed 13 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Cathy and Brent were great hosts! The suite was charming, well-equipped and the location was perfect. The fresh fruit and vegetable garden was a wonderful bonus. We look forward to booking with you both again!

“Perfect self-contained base for exploring the area”
Reviewed 16 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

Everything I needed for a relaxing stay, with full cooking facilities and very large fridge. Excellent Wi-fi and garden area to enjoy.

Just a short trip into the parks and downtown.
Newcastle Island was a personal favourite and it was on the doorstep, wonderful location.
Cathy and Brent were onsite so very helpful taking me to the groceries store on arrival, lending me their fantastic kayak for the day and dropping me off at the float boat harbour. Also gave plenty me privacy during my stay, Thanks Guys!

Super value for the money! A***

“Same Time, This Year! Pleasant, cozy apartment! Enjoyable place!”
Reviewed 11 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Loved staying here two weeks, affordable, comfortable, quiet and convenient.

The apartment was squeaky clean and made me really feel at home while on a vacation.

Very thoughtfully stocked with essentials too - coffee, tea, shower products, lots of towels, drying rack, basic toiletries plus condiments so that I could cook without having to buy lots of extras > books, beach towels, binoculars, umbrella...

Comfortable bed and mattress. Plentiful selection of sockets, lights and hangers.

A very comfortable and enjoyable stay with privacy and security.

Because there is no telephone in the apartment, I could easily use the owners phone.

Perfect Internet connection.

The large fridge was a bit noisy. The stairs at the right side of the building were a bit steep, better to use the stairs on the left side for people who are not able to walk well.


The owners drove me to the airport, helped me with the luggage incl. luggage scale and were very helpful all the time and made me feel very welcome.

I will be back again > > Same Time, This Year! <<

Thank you Cathy and Brent!

I travelled to Nanaimo to see my son. This turned out to be an excellent place to stay. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. It was so convenient to be able to cook meals.
Nice quiet location near the water and very good value. Cathy and Brent were very friendly
and accommodating. Many thanks

“Excellent”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our first flipkey property that we stayed at. We had a most enjoyable stay. The suite was extremely clean, accessible and contained everything you could want for a home away from home. Most of our mornings were spent having coffee on the deck, taking in the view of the Georgia straight. This was our base, has it was easy to travel to neighbouring communities such as Parksville, Qualium Beach and Victoria, Coombs, just to name a few. After a long day out touring, it was relaxing to come "home" and soak in the soaker tub and chill out. We would highly recommend this place. The hosts were extremely welcoming when we got there and were quick to answer any questions you had, whether that was asking about the area, where to eat, etc. Thanks Cathy and Brent.

P.S. Forgot to mention, there are plum trees and a pear tree on the property, as well as a small garden that is accessible.
