I am a professional counsellor and educator and my family and I live in beautiful Nanaimo, BC. We enjoy camping, cycling, time in nature hiking or kayaking, going to concerts, eating great home cooked food, hanging out at the beach and with good friends. We love holidays and as a family with children, prefer a relaxed and local connection to where we visit. We love our home and are happy to offer you hospitality in our lovely, clean, spacious, well-equipped and comfortable family home, in a quiet central Nanaimo residential neighborhood. We live a 10 minute drive to downtown, are close to lake and ocean beaches, forest trails, parks, public transport, groceries, library, shopping mall, restaurants, BC Ferries to Vancouver and numerous Gulf Islands. it is an easy scenic drive to many beautiful towns on Vancouver Island, known for First Nations culture, artist communities, local cuisine, and incredible forest/ocean/lake and mountain scenery, wildlife and related activities.
