Outstanding Townhome in a Nature-Lover's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a lengthy stay at this fabulous townhome. It is beautifully decorated and fully equipped to address all of our needs. Harry and Tammy are well organized and very responsive.

The townhome is ideally located on the beautiful harbourfront of Nanaimo. The Port Theatre, just 3 minutes walk away, offers many appealing shows. Numerous restaurants and coffee shops are also nearby. Ferries to Newcastle Island, Protection Island, and Gabriola Island are just short walk away; all are ideal for a day trip of hiking or biking. Nanaimo has several parks and conservation areas that offer very interesting hikes. Moreover, Nanaimo's central island location is well suited for day trips to all sorts of great hiking and sightseeing destinations on Vancouver Island. There are also several excellent golf courses available at reasonable prices. As a result, even though you are staying in a fabulously appointed townhome, you will feel compelled to get out and enjoy the best of Vancouver Island!

Picture Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up our extended holiday stay at Harry and Tammy's beautiful harbor side home in Nanaimo and couldn't wait to leave our review in the hopes that other fortunate folks might some day share the same great experience we had.

Our check in process could not have been more convenient or easy with super simple instructions along with very prompt communications from Super Hosts Harry and Tammy. We were impressed by the many personal touches these wonderful folks took the time to provide to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We won't spoil your surprises - you'll just have to see for yourself when you stay! Thanks again guys!!!

As far as the townhome goes - we couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything one needs is already there exactly where you'd expect it to be from spices to utensils to cleaning supplies, et al. All the appliances were great. The furnishings are top notch, comfortable and very well thought out. The ensuite bathrooms were a delight as were the beds and linens. We got a kick out of the "app" driven ceiling fan - literally, too cool.

The highlight of the place, of course, is the wonderful patio looking across at the stunning harbor and distant snow capped mountains. Location, location, location. We couldn't wait each day to take our 40 minute round trip speed walk to the northernmost end of the boardwalk and back. We loved eating lunch outside most every day while taking in the sights, including people and dogs and puddle hoppers taking off and landing. Never a dull moment!

This location proved incredibly convenient with many restaurants, shops and a full grocery store just a short walk away. Downtown and Old Nanaimo are both within easy walking distance. If you want to venture further out, there are many, many stunning local trails within a 10-30 minute drive. You'll find several resources in the home to point you in the right direction. We highly recommend walking 5 minutes and taking the $5 ferry to NewCastle Island and making a day of it hiking the island. Even Victoria, Butchart Gardens and Tofino are fairly easy day trips.

We could go on and on, but you get the point. In our opinion, this is a can't miss property that 2-4 folks would enjoy immensely - located in a truly wonderful and scenic part of the world surrounded by really wonderful Canadians. We feel blessed to have lived in this picture perfect paradise for a while and know you'll feel the same way. Thanks one last time Harry and Tammy.

Moderne et lumineux mais surtout avec la proximité et la vue sur l'océan et le port de Nanaimo

  • 4 of 5

Le mois de mai 2017 passé à Harbourfront a été très agréable. Nous retournerons, c'est certain. Au coeur des activités urbaine et nautique, ce que nous aimons beaucoup. Cette heureuse proximité avec le Pacifique occasionne des moments heureux: levers de soleil magnifiques, journée de farniente et soirées douces. Toutefois, il serait intéressant d'installer une climatisation plus efficace que les ventilateurs qui s'y trouvent. Nous avons aussi été incommodés par le bruyant volume de la laveuse et de la sécheuse à linge. Malgré ces détails, nous n'hésiterons pas à retourner pour y séjourner.

Harbour Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our very recent one month stay in this beautifully appointed townhouse. Along with the view, the people watching, the float planes coming and going, it was wonderful to step outside onto the promenade that edged the harbour. We loved our walks, rain or no rain (it was the wettest March in 61 years). The townhouse was well equipped: kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and we had no trouble settling in. The town centre is steps away and Old Town is within walking distance. When we drove, we also enjoyed the easy access to other parts of the Island, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Duncan, Ladysmith for the Old, Chemainus for the dinner theatre production of Pride and Prejudice which was excellent. When we chose to stay in, we enjoyed the available entertainment on Netflix. We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine from a local winery. On our arrival, within hours of being advised of an internet connection problem (server problem), the issue was handled promptly by our hosts, Harry and Tammy. No complaints whatsoever...we are more than happy to recommend this property.

Amazing Waterfront Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

I am writing this on our last night in this beautiful oceanfront condo. From the living room, I watching the last hint of daylight on the water...tremendous. This has been home for a month, and it has been a perfect stay. Tammy and Harry made the entire process easy, from booking, checking in, and were very responsive to any questions we had. From the condo, it is easy to explore Nanaimo, or to watch the activity on the water. The location is ideal for getting out and walking, and for checking out many of the sites in Nanaimo and very convenient if you need to make a quick trip to Vancouver. We have stayed in a number of other rentals, but this one is A+. Thank you Harry and Tammy. We will be back.
