I stayed in this little B & B twice last month as I was passing through Nanaimo driving both North and South in my travels. Darlene, the owner, was most welcoming, her breakfast was tasty and well presented and she has tastefully added some delightful touches .. the rooms have very comfortable beds, excellent bedding, little chocolate on the pillow...

Lovely quiet location with splendid views. Sparkling clean, great power shower and delicious breakfast. Welcoming and homely. Ample room to park and being given a key to access after hours was very helpful. I will return in the Spring. Keep up the good work Darlene!

The Island View B&B is a lovely Nanaimo bed and breakfast. It can hold approximately 8 people maximum (plus the proprietor). The place is absolutely spotless, and very nicely decorated (perhaps almost too much kitsch for my liking, but others might see it as lovely and charming). The lady who operates it is warm, hospitable and helpful. The location is...

Nice view from breakfast room. Stayed in lower level "suite" with private bath. Met our needs very well. No real kitchen in this accomodation but the big apartment has full kitchen. Wonderful breakfasts. Beautiful gardens. Comfortable and clean accomodations and pleasant host. Close to nice parks. Would have no hesitation in returning.

Very friendly older place, lots of tiny decorations. It feels like an elephant in a pocelaine shop. But as I said: friendly and cosy. Excellent breakfast also. The shore is not far away and accesseable by stairs.

My brother and I stayed overnight at Darlene's Bed and Breakfast after a kayaking trip with Wild Heart Adventures Sea Kayaking. Darlene exudes warmth and could not have been more accommodating. Local knowledge, spick and span accommodation, a chocolate on the pillow, a filling and scrumptious breakfast looking across the water all combine to make this a great stay. Easily...

We had such a wonderful hostess! Her home is gorgeous and so inviting to people, deer, birds, and all types of living creature alike. If you happen to be looking for the perfect B&B in Nanaimo, look no further! She has an amazing, lush, manicured, and colorful garden that is so welcoming for admiration. The rear entrance is secluded enough...

This is a charming, old style B&B, just like in England.....it is not a hotel but a home style B&B. Just what we were looking for. We had been travelling three straight weeks and had been on the go. We needed a place to catch our breath and chill. We had a four night booking but had to cancel first...
