I have a funky old house overlooking the harbour a few blocks from downtown Nanaimo. Easy strolling distance to the best restaurants in Nanaimo, and a wonderful seawall that stretches along the harbour. You can easily walk to the new Hullo fast ferry.

If you are looking for things like satellite TV, PVR, a hot tub, or a swimming pool, this is definitely NOT the place for you!  I do have excellent WiFi, a killer view, a nicely stocked kitchen (and fabulous library), and the most comfortable beds in the city (a double and a single) IMHO. My part of the house is upstairs. Downstairs is a separate suite.

She who rules the house is Eunice, a Mexico city rescue dog who is quite dependent on her morning, afternoon and evening walks (and will probably go less than a block with you.) And will otherwise virtually ignore you, unless you have a treat in your hand.

I'm flexible around departure and arrival. Just want to spend a few days in Vancouver around Dec 3.

“ loved our sit with Apollo and Eunice at Barbs ”

Sit Dates May-17-22 - May-19-22 Sitter petaddict, Member Since Jan-10-14

We were very much impressed with Barbs heritage home with all the authentic furnishings and decor, when we arrived . Apollo and Eunice met us at the door very curious and friendly to see who their news friends were. 

 As Barb said they ignored us when we weren't encourageing them or of course feeding them . My walks with Eunice were very enjoyable exploring the neighbourhood, with  very friendly neighbours. 

 Barb was only a text away when needed a question answered and when we arrived made sure we had all the important info to make our stay enjoyable which it certainly was. We are looking forward to sitting again when available.
