This was our first time staying at a B&B through airbnb. It was a great experience, and so glad we tried it! Marian and her place on Protection Island was a gem. From the fun ferry ride to her warm welcome, her place was clean and the setting was beautiful! It was roomier than I expected, which was nice. We took a walk around the island and explored all it had to offer - the little beaches and trails were perfect. I hope to be able to stay there again if ever in the Nanaimo area. The accommodations she provided were wonderful, we had a relaxing and comfortable time there. Wish we'd stayed longer :-)

Loved staying here. Backs right onto the water were we could swim and sun. The room was perfect. Heaps of room and a comfy as bed. Marion spoiled us with a sunset cruise around the island. First place we stayed in canada and we were blown away by how beautiful the island and the people were. Def recommend

Marian is a very welcoming and gracious host. She had stocked the little fridge with everything we needed for a delicious breakfast. Her home is situated conveniently close to the ferry and in a little piece of paradise not far from the water. You can sit in the comfortable queen bed in the morning and look out at nature and the ocean while you sip the freshly ground coffee that Marian leaves for you. Protection Island itself is absolutely stunning. If you are wanting a peaceful retreat in nature and a cozy place to put your feet up while taking in the majestic beauty surrounding Marian's home, this is the place for you. I will definitely be back. Thank you, Marian!

Marian's place is located in a beautiful spot on Protection Island! From the little appartment you have a wonderful view on the ocean and sail boats and Protection Island is small enough to explore everything. It's located right next to the little ferry terminal and was very clean and tidy. I didn't get to know Marian very much, but she welcomed me very warmly.

Great waterfront location - a 2 minute walk to the floating restaurant and small ferry to Nanaimo. The morning sunrise was magnificent. Highly recommended.

I am from the West Coast of Canada and like to walk around Protection Island every morning and kayak on nice days from here to Town or to a few local pubs in the area. I am retired and love to spend time on the Island.
