About this listing

The space

Its all about comfort…A.J.’s Place is a loft style self contained one bedroom suite. It was built and furnished for the owner’s personal use and now can be shared with guests.
From the moment you arrive at the property, enter the garden, make your way up a few stairs and open the Dutch door, you will feel welcome and at home.
A.J.’s Place boasts a living room with fireplace and flat screen TV, a fully equipped kitchen with all appliances, supplies for making tea and coffee and cool bottled water. There is a separate bedroom with a queen bed ,Tempur-Pedic mattress and cuddle-down bedding and a private bathroom with a walk-in shower and heated floor.
The view from A.J.’s Place is pretty darn good….. Looking over Stewart Channel, guests see Thetis and Penelakut Islands as well as mountains located on the mainland. Lights from the ski-hills in Vancouver BC twinkle in the distance at night. The channel is busy. You may see working tug boats maneuvering log booms, coast guard patrols, water taxies, sea planes, BC Ferries to the small islands, pleasure boats and kayaks.
Animals appear in the water: ….sea otters and seals and the occasional killer whale….and on land: deer, bald eagles, and a variety of other birds.
Take two minutes and stroll to the beach where you can relax with a book, walk a couple of trails or even launch your kayak. It’s easy to locate star fish and jelly fish although Dungeness crab scurry away from people. The village center is an easy 20 minute walk through the neighborhood. This is a good way to see the murals, explore the quaint shops, check out the bakery, and see what is going on at Waterwheel Park and the Chemainus Theatre.

Roald was such a sweetie. What took our breath away was the professionally decorated suite - so tastefully put together. We lacked for nothing! We even had a stacking washer and dryer, beautiful kitchen, the most comfortable chairs to cosy up watching TV or gazing into the fire. But the view was lovely. This is a quiet and peaceful location but close to restaurants, parks, theatre. I would definitely stay here again!

If you are looking for an impeccable place to stay with ocean views, a great bed to sleep on, and everything you would need to prepare a meal in the kitchen - this is the place! Roald is a very warm host who also respects your privacy but he is there for you if you need anything. I would most certainly stay here again.

Roald was a wonderful host and the accommodation exceeded our expectation. It was wonderful enjoying our morning coffee to an ocean view & a quiet, peaceful location for a relaxing vacation. Within walking distance to all amenities & the beach.

Roald's loft was absolutely gorgeous. The view of the ocean while sitting around was awesome. The pictures don't do justice to how nice this place was.

We absolutely loved this gorgeous place and Roald is a wonderful host. The property is from our point of view a real treasure and is located in a very quiet neighbourhood. Nevertheless, there is a nice grocery store within walking distance (15 minutes) and a “beach” is just around the corner. The apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything we possibly could have asked for. It was very clean, the kitchen is well equipped and we even got fast WIFI. We could have stayed here for ever! To communicate with Roald was very easy and he was always there if we had any questions. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to return one day.
