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.

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, IMHO. My part of the house is upstairs. Downstairs is a separate suite.

They who rule the house are Apollo, a cat with an attitude who will expect you to be his doorman and waiter, otherwise, he will virtually ignore you.

And Eunice, a Mexico city rescue dog who is quite dependent on her morning, afternoon and evening walks. But will otherwise virtually ignore you.  (Neighbourhood afternoon walker is available if/as needed.)

“ 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.
