This small self-contained handcrafted cottage overlooks Newcastle Island Park and anchorage. It is a 10 minute foot passenger ferry ride from Nanaimo and 5 minute walk. The cabin suits a single person or couple wanting a simple and elegant retreat. Breakfast supplies are included.
Small (270 sq ft) cabin on my waterfront property on Protection Island. It overlooks Newcastle Island anchorage and is surrounded by arbutus and Douglas-fir trees and meadow. The cabin has a simple kitchen and bathroom (combined), sleeping loft and sitting room. There is a double bed upstairs and a sofa which can be made up as a second bed. If one has mobility issues, the ladder to the loft may be a limiting factor. Recent guests Sam and Tei (all one word when you look it up) did a YouTube video blog on their stay at the cabin on Protection Island that gives one a flavour of a young couple’s stay at the cabin https://youtu.be/yS95dv84HOc. It is called “We moved to Nanaimo” Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, extra cleaning of surfaces will be under-taken. There will be additional time between guests occupying the cabin.
Protection Island is a lovely and friendly community where there is always somebody to help, a musical event to raise funds for a worthy cause and an appreciation for the safe, beautiful natural environment. See the Protection Island web-site for information about parks, protocol and the island.
  • This was awesome! Beautiful view and such a cute island. Inside was amazing and super clean!

    Kiarra2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for your hospitality in your beautiful Cabin Trudy! We'll be back :-)

    Shane2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy was an outstanding host, and my stay at her place with my wife was fantastic . The place is naturally gorgeous, and Trudy made sure to add every and each special detail to make it even more splendid. I sincerely recommend her to every traveler. The cabin is cozy and quaint, and so is the island.

    Victor2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway with very purposeful design in such a unique hand-built home. Everyone in town was exceedingly friendly and went out of their way to chat and offer advice about the area. Trudy also provided wonderful hommade granola and other breakfast goods - very helpful on an island!

    Eli2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • My second visit, and amazing as usual!

    Dominik2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing 10-day stay at Trudy's place. The little cabin is gorgeous and cozy, with many nice features. The view looking out to Newcastle Island across the water is beautiful and serene. We had a great time walking around Protection Island, kayaking, exploring the trails through the tranquil forest on nearby Newcastle Island, and Nanaimo is only a 10min ferry ride away. Trudy was so thoughtful and helpful during our stay, which really made us feel at home. This place offers such a unique experience and was definitely a highlight of our trip.

    Tom2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy is a top-notch, thoughtful host with great communication and adorable little touches from check in to check out. I visited her cabin to celebrate my first weekend as a Canadian citizen and I don't think I could have chosen a better spot. The cabin is so cozy and welcoming, the views are spectacular, and the island experience is totally unique. We explored Protection Island and ate some tasty seafood there (Dinghy Dock Pub), took a ferry to neighbouring Newcastle Island for a day hike (a stunning provincial park), brunched in Nanaimo at a farm-to-table restaurant (Gabriel's Gourmet Cafe) and a local hot spot (The Vault), and relaxed in all the nature. I wish I spent another day to check out Gabriola Island, but that'll be for next time. Thanks Trudy!!

    Duggan2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy’s cabin is an amazing place to stay on Protection Island. She is super helpful and friendly and T-dog was a welcome surprise greeter upon our arrival. The views are fantastic and it was a lovely place to stay for a weekend away! Thank you so much Trudy!

    quiet and respectful is how I would describe our neighbors. The Deer and Rabbits are fun to watch and so are the Orca whales if you are lucky to be here when they pass by the house.
  • Nice place in a super quiet neighborhood. The hot tub is nice and has a view of the ocean, the whole place was very clean, And the check in was a breeze. Thanks for having me

    Tristan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing location! Cozy, quaint and exactly as described! The kitchen is stocked with anything you would need to make your own meals and the bathroom has everything you would need incase you forgot anything. Super quick with responding to questions and they give you tips on local restaurants, pubs grocery stores etc. Our only regret is having stayed only one night.

    Keri2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and private space, very comfortable. We walked down to the beach and would recommend that everyone make some time to do the same.

    Martha2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful suite in many ways. Everything you needed was there plus many welcoming touches. Basic supplies for making meals were provided and was really appreciated. I found the location walkable to get groceries, to walk downtown and from the Horseshoe Bay ferry. Wendy kept in touch and provided excellent information about the area.

  • We chose Kerry’s place for it’s location. It is central to all of Ladysmith. We were here to visit family, so we did not spend much time there except at night. There is everything you could need there. The internet was great, and he even furnished Bath robes! Kerry is very kind and thoughtful, his place is charming, and it is a great value. We were very happy with our choice.

  • There is a reason that when we find ourselves in Nanaimo we always try to stay here! And that happens regularly because of business btw. Graham & Vicki are people that you can count on. Their home is a place of refuge and rest. Their company is delightful. This may sound exaggerated but I assure you that it is not. We highly recommend staying here!!

    Departure Bay is a family oriented neighbourhood with a mix of older and new homes,. There are many people out walking their dogs or pulling their kayak down to the beach for an evening paddle. There is a ball/soccer field, tennis courts and water park 1 block away, at the beach there is a grassy park with a playground, washrooms and picnic tables. There is also a short Sea Wall with many nice benches to sit and enjoy the view. Departure Bay is a place where people from throughout the city come to hangout eat food and relax near the beach. Enjoy an afternoon coffee, beer or glass of wine at the Drip, an upscale coffee shop across the street from the beach. It is one of those places that when you drive by you say, wow would I ever like to live here... come and discover.
  • I enjoyed my stay very much. The room was small but cozy , quiet, and comfortable. I would deffiently recommend anyone looking to stay in departure bay to check out this air bnb.

  • Marty's place is very well run and clean. I love the added touch including a guide on what to do when here. I even extended my stay because I loved it so much and being so close to the Beach was an extra plus.

    Patricia2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

    Arthur2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice, comfortable, clean, quiet place next to the bay. Marty very relaxed, easy to get along with host.

    Allen2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Gloria and Marty are very welcoming hosts who like to hear and share experiences from all over the world. The place is just a few steps away from Departure Bay. A bus stop is right around the corner. Nanaimo as it is might not be the most exciting town but apart from that the small accommodation you‘re in is just fine to do whatever you’re after. Cheers Tim

    Tim2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Martys and Glorias place was great. The communication with him beforehand was always fast and he provided much help. Unfortunately I didn't met him in person during my stay but Gloria was also an awesome and warm host. She gave me quick rides and also showed me a little around when there was time. The room and the house are as described. Everything was very clean and even tea and coffee for breakfast were provided. The room felt for me even a bit more cosy than expected! Sure, the place is not located downtown and you need to take the bus to get there but instead of this the beach is only 1 minute walk away. Amazing! I highly recommend this place!

    Tanja2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Each day in Marty’s place is a life: every single day has its own death. The room feels at first relatively small but you will definitely find inner peace while in it. Each is day is worth 10,000 days at once. If given the chance I will go again.

We stayed when it was pretty darn cold outside, but were cozy and warm all night by the outdoor fire, in the hot tub, and next to the wood stove in the tent! Taught my partner to play cribbage with the set provided, and he beat me! Fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the creek. So lovely! Thanks Michael!

  • Such an incredible place to get away and relax! We were surrounded by trees and it rained both nights but we stayed extra cozy in the tent with the fireplace going all night! We were able to enjoy a night at the fire pit surrounded by forest and a dip in the beautifully lit hot tub each night. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Michael is such an incredible host!! He laid out perfect instructions on how to use everything and suggested many activities and attractions in the area. The place had so many little thoughtful touches!! Such a great stay.

    Very Private cute 450 square foot 1 bedroom cottage with covered patio backing on a park, surrounded by trees and in a beautiful, natural, Gulf Island setting. Has a full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer and sitting/living area. Comes with a covered private parking spot.
    The cabin is very private and nicely secluded. My guests have really appreciated the feeling of being tucked in the woods and yet near to amenities. It's a magical spot backing on a park, lots of birds and nature. It's beautiful and serene!
  • This space was phenomenal, and I can see why Carmen is a superhost. The cabin was everything we expected and more — beautiful, cozy, and nestled in wilderness. Carmen went above and beyond in answering our questions in a timely manner, giving us directions and tips, and offering us a few extras when we forgot beach towels. If we could give 6 stars we would. Thank you for such a pleasant trip - we’ll be back in a heartbeat.

    Our guest suite is decorated in welcoming west coast blues with wood accents and beach decor from our travels. A super soft king sized bed is great after exploring our nearby hikes and pubs and the television can be turned in any direction for you to watch Netflix. We are a small country studio with a small hot water tank so if you need a long shower (more than 11 minutes) we might not be right for you. As well, we have 2 heaters, hope that is enough for you, we find it cozy and most love it!
    At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the night sky is littered with stars and you will sleep peacefully disturbed possibly only by the whinny and neigh from the neighboring horse stables. Happy to help you plan your trip and give you tips, your hosts are super friendly and accommodating and look forward to meeting you!
    We are minutes from a provincial park and lake with great walks or good for a bike ride. We also are near to the awesome Cable Bay Trail, the renowned Cedar farmers market, BC's first neighborhood pub The Crow and Gate as well as charming Coco's Cafe. Well worth exploring and only a 12 minute drive to downtown Nanaimo and the Seawall.

    Our suite is comfortable and calm. There is a small covered patio to enjoy time outside even in our rainy season! Our small island town has so much to offer and we are only a 15 minute walk to downtown! Be prepared for the walk back though - it’s about half an hour back up because of the hills. Don’t start the trek back without one of the Old Town Bakery’s famous cinnamon buns :) A 5 minute drive to Transfer Beach which boasts a playground, water park, beach and kayak/paddle board rentals.
    The futon sits just off the dining area and sleeps two more people. We also have a pack'n play or bedrails for little ones upon request.
    Our neighbourhood is quiet and tucked away by the trees. We live about a 10 minute walk to Forrest Field (the turf fields here in Ladysmith). Whether you’re playing on them or just looking for some local sport action, they’re close enough to enjoy! There is also a small playground by the field. There are great little nature trails just behind our block of houses which you can hike or get to exploring on your mountain bike! We are also just around the corner from a bigger playground for all ages.
  • Our stay here was great, we loved the space and it was very convenient to have so many amenities provided. The bed and futon were both comfortable, and the space was very clean. Ladysmith is a lovely area to stay! Thank you for accommodating us during our trip, we would stay again!

    Teresa2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • When you walk in, you get an immediate sense of privacy and security. The smells are fresh and the unit is clean and stylish. The bed is so comfortable, you’ll want to sleep longer. This is a wonderful home shared by welcoming and good spirited hosts.

    Kathie2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nicole was an amazing host - very good with communication & quick to respond to any questions we had. She was also very accommodating and the space was perfect - clean & spacious and close enough to downtown ladysmith that we could walk.

    Taryn2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Really loved this unit. There was plenty of space for my partner and I. I also liked having our own “backyard” and the robes were a delightful touch. Fully stocked kitchen amenities meant we could save money cooking/baking our meals. They even had a new glass blender! I’d say this space is ideal for travellers passing through or in between homes (like we were).

    Mishelle2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • To all!! This was super unexpected and was so warming, clean and comforting. Thank you so much for the great stay. Definitely we will stay again. And I will refer your place without doubt.

    Jeff2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We will 100% stay here again next time we visit Ladysmith. We loved the open concept, that it was very spacious (more than enough room for our family of 3) and the cozy decor. Nicole and her family have done an amazing job to make this suite feel like home!

    Welcome to the west coast guest suite that offers all of the comfort and amenities you could want for your stay in the beautiful and historic coastal town of Ladysmith. Situated overlooking the harbour, this self-contained private suite boasts a comfortable double bed, luxurious ensuite bathroom, cozy corner for preparing and enjoying your own fresh meals, and a private outdoor patio perfect for enjoying that morning cuppa, complete with bistro set and hammock.
    Are you a cat lover? Let us know, and we’ll make sure you meet Farley Meowat, our beautiful and gentle Maine Coone with tons of personality and just a bit of sass.
    Ladysmith is an old town with a lot of history, and we’ve found it to be a wonderful place to set down some roots. Located on one of the most sought-after streets in Canada overlooking the water, we’re just 5 minutes walking to both downtown Ladysmith (where you can enjoy a world-renowned cinnamon bun) and the lovely walkable Transfer Beach, where you can find daily activities during the summer months. Do you have a couple of days to spend in lovely Ladysmith and want an insider’s guide for what’s hot and what’s not? Be sure to let us know! Ladysmith is the central location for exploring extended parts of the island. Spend a Saturday at the Salt Spring Island market, a Sunday at the Cedar Farmer’s Market, or any day on beautiful Gabriola Island. Hike Nanaimo’s Mount Benson, or enjoy Chemainus’ murals before a night at the theatre. And this is only the beginning of your quintessential west coast adventures. We looking forward to sharing them with you.
  • Great cozy place to stay. Great communication. I would recommend and definitely stay again if I was in the Ladysmith area.

    Estuary Gardens overlooks the Nanaimo River Estuary. It enjoys many species of birds and amazing floral gardens. Our newly renovated suite has 3 queen sized beds, and plenty of peace and quiet at the top of a no-through road. Calvin and Greg live on site, and are very friendly and approachable. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We are minutes away from a grocery store, drug store, restaurants, downtown, airport, float planes, and BC Ferries.
    The suite has a private entrance and carport. It is a bright 1500 sq. ft. ground level walk-out, with partial ocean view. It has a complete modern kitchen, and walk-in rain shower bathroom. It has one smaller private room with a queen size bed, and a larger private room with two queen size beds and a sitting area with a chair and love seat. Coffee, tea, sugar, and creamer are provided. The suite is fully stalked with dishes and cutlery. Outside patio is equipped with BBQ and comfortable seating area with a table and four chairs. No smoking or pets are permitted within the suite, smoking is allowed on patio.
    The house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, on a no-thru street. We are located close to the ocean, and have a tall hedge for privacy from the neighboring houses in front of us. The views of the ocean and river estuary from the guest suite and patio are partial (however, a short couple of steps to Centennial Road or Estuary Lane will give you some awesome ocean, mainland mountain, Gabriolla Island, sunrise, and sunset photo opportunities). Access to the ocean is difficult from our property, and requires a short 5 minute drive to the downtown harbour, or you can park outside the Living Forest Campground at the end of Maki Road (another 5 minute drive), and hike one of the trails you will find that takes you down to the Nanaimo River Estuary Hiking trails to the ocean, local parks, and bird viewing sites are a short drive away. Bald Eagles nest in the Fir Trees around the property, and can frequently be seen in the trees and circling the estuary looking for fish and small rodents. What makes our place unique, is the love we've put into the numerous gardens and flower containers that can be enjoyed around the property. A 5 minute walk will take you to 3 shopping complex's, complete with a grocery store, pharmacy, health and dental clinics, liquor store, coffee shops, restaurants, bank, 24 hour fitness centre, and hardware store.
  • Greg and Calvin have a really nice and beautiful house and inside covered everything. The cat tea house and seafood restaurant next to are really good. Because i dont have car, I need take bus to viu and downtown. There is a bus stop recent detoured so it takes 15 mins walking to another one. Overall it is really nice place. This room is very close to the sea, surrounded by a cat-themed tea house, there is a seafood restaurant next to it with great cocktails and oyster recommendations, the room is very warm and suitable for classmates to spend the night. Because I do n’t have a car, I need to take public transportation. The bus stop was 3 minutes away, but now I need to walk 15 minutes to another platform when changing roads. Road notices should be completed in a month. The owner is very welcoming to two locals. Overall very satisfied.

    Lisa2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect . Great helpful hosts who have supplied everything. Very thoughtful extras like a bowl of fruit and some spices. The place is exactly as pictured including that wonderful shower!

    Jeannette2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this amazing, clean and well maintained accommodation. Calvin and Greg provided a lot of extras.

    Jennifer2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect and our hosts were great! From the small touches to the excellent amenities, we couldn’t have asked for better!

    Selma2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Estuary Gardens is a wonderful suite fully equipped, clean, comfortable and arranged with a nice touch. Situated in a nice quiet neighborhood with a gorgeous backyard view, and a beautiful garden you’re within minutes of downtown and well situated to other parts of the island. Calvin and Greg are outgoing generous hosts; I definitely recommend booking their accommodations!

    Brandon2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is outstanding value in every way; the suite is clean and exactly as the photos show; accommodation is comfortable and area is quiet. Everything is provided in the suite, including fresh fruit and a little decorated Christmas tree outside to welcome us. We will definitely recommend it and would love to return.

    Patricia2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The home is very large and private, in a quiet location, and spotlessly clean. We hope to stay here again when visiting Nanaimo.

    Rosalind2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • 5-stars is just an understatement! If I could give more stars, I would! Greg and Calvin's place is simply immaculate. It was definitely the best AirBnB place we have ever done and we have been in enough to know the difference between someone who is just wanting to earn money from their property, and those who are house-proud and looking at giving the people a great experience. 'Bare essentials' were not what Greg and Calvin were going for. They really ensure that the towels are well folded, and have more just in case they are needed. They also make sure that there are enough utensils and crockery to have a small gathering if you wish to do so. It is definitely not a place I would call 'just a home'. Cam and I wanted to stay in an AirBnB accommodation as we were in Nanaimo to complete our surrogacy journey. During our stay, m we managed to welcome our little boy, Tyler. Three of us stayed in Greg and Calvin's unit and it was perfect for us. We had everything we needed and all the comfort that we never thought we would get from an AirBnB accommodation. Our newborn was never uncomfortable! Greg and Calvin would always communicate with us to ensure that we were comfortable and asked if we needed anything else. Their home has an incredible view of the water and at the distance, could see the Tsawwassen–Dukes Point (Vancouver–Nanaimo) ferry going back and forth. Their place is only around 10min to either of the ferry terminals that take you (and your vehicle) to Vancouver. Seriously, the best place ever!

    Betty2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts in this lovely AirBnB could not have been more gracious or flexible. They shared their stories about biking as we shared ours about traveling, and we were very glad to have gotten to know them. The bed was very comfortable. Our lives in China were upturned by the coronavirus making travel back to China impossible, and their home was a respite where we could cook, work, and rest. They were so lovely that we would like to stay in touch with them!

I stayed for nearly a month while on a work trip to Nanaimo, and despite other guests also staying in other rooms, the house was always very clean, spacious, and quiet! Marty and Gloria are honestly great hosts, both are very personable and I really enjoyed hanging out and chatting in the evenings. Rooms have a tv, and probably the most comfy bed I’ve had at an AirBnB! Laundry and kitchen facilities are available which is great for a longer stay. Beautiful location on departure bay, and a beautiful homely house with above and beyond amenities provided! Marty has been running Airbnb for a while and it shows, communication was great and everything was as advertised and well equipped with everything you might need. Thanks again for the hospitality and I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested!

  • Very tidy and lovely suite equipped with everything you need. The communication and check-in were super easy and the place looks exactly like it does on the pictures. The neighbourhood was nice was quiet while still being close enough to the city to take in everything Nanaimo has to offer. Alexzander is a great host and I would absolutely recommend staying at his place!

  • Zander's place was in a nice neighborhood and it was really great to have some added amenities, including a large selection of coffees with the Keurig.

  • We really enjoyed our stay with Janine, Ian and of course Jack. The Place has an amazing view, is super clean and comfortable and the hosts are very welcoming and can give a lot of tips about the area. We would definetely visit again if we are on Vancouver Island again.

  • Janine was such a great host. It was so nice to be greeted with a hot cup of tea and scone, a great view, wonderful animal creatures in their backyard, and a lovely conversation after a day of driving and climbing on the island. We stayed with them on the last night of our trip and wished we could have stayed longer. Be sure to wake up in time for the sunrise! It is gorgeous there.

  • My stay at Janine's and Ian's was amazing. Super friendly hosts who greeted me with tea and scones, which were very appreciated after a long day on the road. Then they gave me local tips about where to eat and visit, and what was supposed to be a quick pass through became an exploration of the city, and I'm grateful for it. The space was super clean and comfortable, and Jack was the best canine host too!

  • Janine and Ian made us feel right at home in Chemainus, I only wish we could have stayed longer! Janine was so sweet and had fresh homemade scones and tea waiting for us when we arrived. My partner and I really enjoyed the great conversations and breakfast on the deck with beautiful views and hummingbirds. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality Janine! All our best,
