How lucky we were to be able to stay in the Seaview house on our recent trip to Vancouver Island. The owner, Su, was extremely responsive and helpful during our stay regarding various outings, restaurants, etc for us to take. Seaview was a truly welcoming site on our arrival after a long day of travel from North Carolina with soft...

You certainly earned your Vancouver Island visitor badges and could likely write a few tourist guides post your visit. Thank you as well for leaving our home in pristine condition. It is so...

She provided us with that much information relating to the house and the area that it felt like we had already been...

Dear Bob & Dot, It was a sincere pleasure to have you stay at our home for your family reunion with your son, his wife and their two boys. I loved that you made yourselves "locals" using our bus service to get around. You discovered so many places, I marvelled at your adventurous spirits to just get up & get...

The home was so clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is stocked with any supply you could possibly need. Su left a binder of everything you would need to know and gave us wonderful...

Dear Lisa, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was our pleasure to host you at our beach house once again this year. I know it is a long trip for you from New York State, but it is always great to have you back when you are in Nanaimo visiting family. Hope to see you in 2019....
