Basic, in our driveway. We are walking distance to the Village, beach, and a great hiking trail. We are located right in town so no car is needed. The village has all one needs: bread, milk and beer. Butcher, Bakery, Pub, liquor store, pharmacy , grocery.
Should be available most of the time.
Jim and Karen were gracious hosts. They welcomed me and made me feel comfortable. We had great conversations and good times. I highly recommend them if you're in the Ladysmith area.
Karen was so helpful and a great host - we loved our stay in Ladysmith and look forward to staying again!
Parking was easy to access and it was a fairly quiet location.
Jim and Karen are fantastic hosts! I highly recommend a visit. Ladysmith has so much to offer to; beach, hikes, small town!
We have had a thoroughly great time!
Thanks for everything Guys :-)
We stayed at Karen and Jim's for 2 nights. Very friendly couple and a nice garden at their house perfect for a beer on a good day.
We just returned from a three week trip around Vancouver Island and the PNW and had the great pleasure of boon docking at Karen AND JIM. Karen was super responsive and flexible as our plans evolved and changed. We shared a cocktail after she helped us get situated and appreciated the tips (especially the cinnamon buns at the local bakery) for our trip north the next morning. Highly recommend a stop and visit if you are passing through.
A huge thank you to Jim and Karen for making us feel so welcome and comfortable for our two nights in Ladysmith. What a lovely little town and a great area to explore.
We also enjoyed our evening chats with our hosts tremendously.
we stayed with them another time and had such a good time. Dinner together and a nice tour of ladysmith, thanks for all that.
always safe trips and hope to see you again
Fantastic hosts. Shared local secrets and made me feel at home.
Ladysmith is a great little town to visit - you should stop and say hello to Karen and Jim and tour the town. One word. - charming.
We did not stayed at jimkaren's place only because of the schedule conflic but they were very up front with a lot of informations about where to stay in their sourondings. Would definatly recommend to send them an hosting request for your next travel on the island.
Came in a bit late, but got an heartily welcome from Jim and Karen. Got supplied with all we needed and more. Highly recommend it and would def return!
we stayed with jim and karen for 2 nights in early spring, so we had 2 evenings and a dinner together, where we shared stories and experiences as well as thoughts about god and the world. they made us feel so welcome, that we easy could spend a week. hope to meet again somewhen, perhaps in fall.
The host were very kind and generous in giving us a tour around town. They shared their knowledge of the area and went above and beyond in helping us. As newcomers to the island, we felt very welcomed by them.
We stayed for only 1-night, but long enough to appreciate their generosity and helpful nature. They even gave us access to a squeeky clean new bathroom and welcomed us to use their big gorgeous yard. Really lovely folks. Made us feel very welcome and at home. Highly recommended :)
We stayed with Karen and Jim for 3 nights. They went completely out of their way to make us feel at home, we weren't just invited to use a parking space, we were made to feel like family. Their advice on things to see and do in the area was very helpful, it gave us the opportunity to explore places we wouldn't have known about otherwise. They are a fun, welcoming couple and we hope our paths cross again sometime in the future.
