Super Host

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hosting is available at our home, in the driveway for smaller rigs. 25ft is about the max we can hold, but if you are longer, give us a shout anyways, we may be able to assist with another great location.
We also have plenty of yard for tent camping.
We are home most of the year, with the exception of a few months in the winter as we seek sunny days and warm beaches.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are very skilled at cocktail hour. For us, hosting is a pleasure. We can social or not. Have you for dinner or leave you alone. Pretty relaxed around here.

Great host

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.

Wonderful Stay

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.

My brand of crazy

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.

Very informative

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.

highly recommend this host

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.

Warm hospitality

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 :)

Wonderful Time

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.
