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 (or even 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 hefty 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.
I'm needing a sit between Wednesday September 22 and Monday September 27, and also between Tuesday, September 28 and Sunday October 3. Dates are variable, based on your arrival/departure. If you would like to do both, you are welcome to stay with me for the day in between.
