Nanaimo is mid Vancouver Island and a Port City, with a lovely City park on the downtown ocean. Whale watching tours, kayaking, and a nice waterfront shopping and restaurants.
In summer, there is strict fire regulations so may not be able to use firepit.
Gps will tell you to take Lantern road, a silly tiny detour, just stay on Holden Corso which turnes into our street.
Driveway is steep but short, parking right in front of house on gravel. If parking right next to house, you can park tow vehicle beside. spot to park is 20ft wide x 30ft long. Long vehicles must go slow or will bottom out. Not a place to show up at in the dark to park, no street lights.
We have the nicest pub nearby called Crow and Gate, even if you do not drink, it is quaint and good food! We have a lot of great swimming holes on the river and even one that is a 5 minute drive or easy bike ride away!
