Holiday Rental House
This beautiful, bright 2-bedroom cottage in the Heritage area of Nanaimo is a fresh change from a hotel when you're visiting Nanaimo. It's tastefully furnished and well located in the Old City of Nanaimo, close to the waterfront, outdoor pool, parks, and boutique shops. It is available now for stays of 4-days or longer - with a weekly and monthly rate as well. It is fully-equipped with a modern kitchen, wireless internet, VOIP phone, smart TV, barbecue, dishwasher, and you have your own private patio area. We also provide a basket of goodies to get you going in the morning. It's a lovely private spot for weekend getaways, working in town - or for your summer or winter vacations, and it's just a short walk to the harbour and seawall in downtown Nanaimo.

How to get there
Nanaimo Airport is about a 20 minutes drive away and you can rent cars there or come by the Airporter. Departure Bay ferry terminal is a 5 minute drive from here, or if you arrive at Duke Point ferry terminal, that is a 15 minute drive away. Some guests use local transit and local buses are a short walk away, others rent a car and can park their car right outside the cottage on Machleary Street. You can then be parked right outside your own private entrance to the cottage.
