There are two bedrooms; both have queen sized beds. This home sleeps a maximum of 6 guests as the futon bed, located in the private study sleeps 2. Your master bedroom has a flat screen TV, and 3 piece ensuite bathroom which leads out onto the deck where you can enjoy the panoramic ocean view. Your second bedroom is bright and sunny and looks out onto the garden.

The lower level is a recreation area with a multi gym machine, free weights, a TV and DVD/VCR player. There is a 2 piece bathroom on this level and a large area for the kids to play. Washer and dryer are located in the mud room.

There is a convenience store, liquor store, pub/restaurant and coffee shop within 600 meters of the property. Ocean View House is 2 km's from Neck Point beach and Pipers Lagoon Park. If you stay there awhile, you may be lucky enough to watch the orcas or dolphins pass by. Seals and otters can be seen playing in the inlet as eagles soar above. Within a 5 minutes drive,you will be at the trailhead of Linley Valley, a large dog-friendly park with lakes and streams and trails that go on forever. There are several mountain bike trails in Linley Valley and around the city.

Come and stay at Ocean View House, a home away from home and enjoy the beauty of Vancouver Island.

Beautiful view and great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and the location convenient to shopping and accessing the best of Vancouver Island from Victoria to Tofino. The view from the deck was great of the ocean - not to mention the deer eating daily in the yard below.

The house had everything necessary to enjoy preparing meals and relaxing whenever we needed to recover from our vancouver island adventures. We would love to spend more time there in the future.

We were fortunate to stay in this lovely home during our vacation in Nanaimo from July 31-August 10th. This home was clean, organized and very comfortable for our family of five. The kitchen was fully equipped for any meals we prepared at home, the beds provided for a comfortable sleep each night and we enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from the balcony. This property served as a home base for our daily excursions and its location is conveniently located close to major roadways. We often rent vacation homes when traveling and this home surpassed our expectations. We would definitely stay here again.

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to stay at accommodations that offer kitchen space and that allows us and our teenaged son to spread out a little. This house and its amazing views was the icing on our vacation to Nanaimo. We looked forward to our leisurely suppers on the private deck each night. The kitchen provided ample space for us to make meals as well. The location must be mentioned since we were just an hour or 2 away from everywhere we went including: Victoria, Cowachin Bay, Parksville and Comox. We will definitely be back and recommend this awesome house to friends!

Owner's Response: We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Ocean View House. It is nice to have the space to relax and enjoy the views after a busy day sightseeing. Nanaimo is very central on the Island and is a great location if you want to explore the Island as many of our guests do. We hope you can make it back as we would love to have you stay at our home again.
