Steve and Louella have a beautiful, pristine home that felt like an oasis of peace and quiet as soon as we arrived. Everything was very clean and clutter-free, so we felt very relaxed about settling in. The house-manual was full of useful information, including some great recommendations for dining out.
Nanaimo was a fun city to explore, with loads of excellent walking routes, shopping, and out-doorsy opportunities. We returned by the end of each day, tired, but totally satisfied. It was especially nice to relax in the hot-tub after all that hiking!
Having access to a reliable vehicle with bicycle racks was a thoughtful bonus, and we were able to communicate via text messages very effectively whenever any questions arose.
This was our first exchanged, and I must say, I can't imagine it gets any better than this!
