Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter and I had the pleasure of living at the Stewart Avenue condo for two months. We loved this condo !! The building is very secure and safe and the location is wonderful as you can relax on your deck and watch the boats and float planes come and go. It’s a very easy and lovely walk along the waterfront to downtown Nanaimo and there is a restaurant conveniently located on the same property. The condo itself is stunning, spacious, very clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. More importantly however, the landlords, Kim and Barry, are lovely people who immediately dealt with any question or concern we had and made the entire process seamless. I highly recommend staying here.

Excellent property, great location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed this property, well furnished great amenities, lots of space, great location.

Underground parking. I was working in Nanimo and walked along the waterfront daily to work.

I thought the value for my money was very good.

Kim the owner was great,

A car is needed to get groceries but it's an easy drive to local supermarkets

I will stay again on my return visits

Owner's Response: Dear William, You were such wonderful guests. I'm so glad we helped make your work trip a more enjoyable one. I'll look into providing information on grocery delivery services as I think we have a couple of them in town - and one is for organic food! I look forward to seeing you again! Warmly, Kim

Great stay !

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my 2 month stay in Kim's condo . She was quick to respond and always helpful . Kim's condo is clean, modern and it is obvious that much thought has been put into ensuring a good stay for guests . Books, DVDs, wide rAnge of kitchen utensils and an illuminated toilet bowl ! I loved hearing the seagulls and watching the boats from the balcony .

Clean and comfortable

I really have nothing to add. We were very happy to stay here. It was reasonably well stocked, and well furnished. It made a good base of operations.

Owner's Response: It was lovely to host you and your family. We took your wife's advice and have added a dish rack so future guests have the option to wash by hand or use the dishwasher. Thanks so much for the suggestion! Enjoy your new home in Nanaimo. Warmly, Kim
