About Michael & Leanne Wood

I am a retired Air Canada Captain, my wife is a retired piano teacher, we LOVE living in Nanaimo with its slower pace, access to beautiful trails, beaches, and, of course, the spectacular views that are soo good for the soul!

Michael & Leanne Wood purchased this house in 2006

Why Michael & Leanne Wood chose Nanaimo

Our property is part of a very private, 3 home parcel of land on about 2.5 acres, surrounded by acres of forest, with some of the nicest views available, all really good reasons to buy! We are also only 5 - 6 minutes from major shopping including Costco, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, etc.

What makes this house unique

The best part of our property is the space between us and our neighbors, which is possible with 2.5 acres shared with only 3 other homes; we enjoy the privacy and the unobstructed views.

Clean and comfortable suite

  • 3 of 5

Arrived and found the key as per instructions. The suite is bright with clear view of the ocean. The vegetation outside is well maintained. The outdoor patio is very inviting however the weather was too cool to enjoy it. Binoculars would have been nice to have to watch the hummingbirds and bald eagles. Laundry facilities was nice to have although I had to buy my own soap and fabric softener. Left it for the next occupants. Beautiful gem in Nanaimo. Would have liked to meet the owners in person to compliment them. Maybe next time.

You have an amazing view from the property to the sea.

  • 4 of 5

Provided you have a car everything is reachable within 10 min. It's a quiet, clean and a very well equipped home. Parks, lakes, woods including maintained trails are all around you. Once you stay there you will always extend your stay. :-)

Thanks to Leanne and Michael!!

Very Comfortable with a Breathtaking View!

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was a great location, central to everything. The suite is very private, comfortable and quiet. You are surrounded by a lot of nature, trees, and the occasional deer wandering through the property. Thank you Michael and Leanne!

Well worth the visit to Nanaimo! Five stars earned.

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay. Michael and Leanne were very friendly and warm, always easy to reach for inquiries. The suite wasn't lacking anything and is a fully functioning home away from home. We enjoyed the private the space was, which was a concern with a fully glassed living room and no blinds. The view from the suite was also amazing. In a nutshell, we enjoyed our visit and would recommend staying here 100%.
