Centrally located on Vancouver Island making easy trips to Victoria (1.5 hours) or skiing in Comox Valley (1.5 hours) or the Tofino West Coast (3 hours) and close to Departure Bay Ferry for easy access to Vancouver (1.5 hour by boat). ...Nanaimo, a town of 80,000 is known for outdoor recreation, a thriving cultural scene, and some good restaurants.
No smoking on premises, must be non smoker, no pets. This is a quiet area. People frequently have dinner parties and backyard barbeques, but it is not an appropriate setting for rowdy parties. We have put considerable care into our decor and expect furnishings to be treated with care and respect. In Canada, people take their shoes off at the door and don't wear outdoor footwear on floors or furniture.
We are a mid sixties retired professional couple who love to travel, cycle tour, and enjoy our family and friends. Jim is a retired Forester, and Debby a retired community social worker and Counsellor. We created our lovely guest space for close friends and family with the idea that we would rent it out when they were not using it. We have participated in house swapping in the past and air bnb is our latest adventure. We have traveled quite a bit in BC, the Canadian prairies, Australia, Hawaii, Mexico, Cuba, often while cycle touring. We have toured in Ireland, Holland, and the Camino Trail in Spain. We hope to see more of Europe in upcoming years. Jim has recently had an adventure in Mongolia, you can ask him about it when you meet. We are committed grandparents, which has expanded our horizons in several ways. We grow some of our own veggies in our garden which we love eating from. We look forward to meeting you.
