Old City Cottages

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia
This beautiful, bright 2-bedroom cottage in the Heritage area of Nanaimo is a fresh change from a hotel when you're visiting Nanaimo. It's tastefully furnished and well located in the Old City of Nanaimo, close to the waterfront, outdoor pool, parks, and boutique shops.

It is available now for stays of 4-days or longer - with a weekly and monthly rate as well. It is fully-equipped with a modern kitchen, wireless internet, VOIP phone, smart TV, barbecue, dishwasher, and you have your own private patio area. We also provide a basket of goodies to get you going in the morning.

It's a lovely private spot for weekend getaways, working in town - or for your summer or winter vacations, and it's just a short walk to the harbour and seawall in downtown Nanaimo. Rent kayaks and paddle to the Dinghy Dock pub on Protection Island...
