Cynthia is a lovely and kind host, she cooked us an amazing breakfast and welcomed us into her home. The accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable. Located in the basement of her home there are wonderful views from the balcony, and a cute little dog to play with. Good location close to nanaimo, this is a great place to stay.

Cynthia's house is at the very end of a street high above Nanaimo harbour. The view is amazing. The hosts are very personable and easy to talk to. It felt like they welcomed their guests as part of their family. The bedroom is exactly as you see it, with a wonderful view of the harbour, and a very comfortable bed. The room is separated from the rest of the downstairs suite (you either go through a door, then up and down a couple of steps which also lead to the upstairs, or you can go through a sliding glass door to the deck and then in another door). The rest of the suite consists of a very comfortable livingroom, another bedroom and a bathroom complete with steam room. There is no kitchenette or fridge, although the hosts offered theirs if needed. They also provide a full, homemade breakfast upstairs in the dining room!

This house is incredible, the photos don't do it justice - waking up in a beautiful room overlooking the bay, with every imaginable comfort and amenity. Cynthia was so warm and kind, and welcomed us into her home like we were family! We also enjoyed an amazing breakfast and conversation with her and her husband, and we left feeling warm, cared for, and with very happy tummies for the rest of our drive. 5 stars isn't enough! Thank you so much Cynthia!

Cynthia is a wonderful charming host. Very accommodating and knowledgeable of the area. She created a very delicious breakfast for us to start the day. As well as a hearty bowl of politics. We had a lovely time at her beautiful home.

Here’s what we would like to say: 5 stars ….. no, that’s not enough to describe Cynthia and Bryan, our engaging, generous and kindly hosts for 6 days. We were warmly welcomed to their beautiful home and garden with stunning views overlooking Departure Bay in Nanaimo. This is an exceptional airbnb run by exceptionally kind and caring hosts. We hope to be able to return in future. With very best wishes Jean and Alan Black (The Scottish Friends)

Cynthia User ProfileCynthia is a superhost.

I am a semi-retired interior decorator. I am hosting on airbnb for a variety of reasons one of which is that I really enjoy entertaining and meeting new people. As a business woman my focus has been and is on providing friendly and good customer service. I grew up in a household where everyone was welcome and to be made felt at home and I've tried to do that throughout my life. Hosting is just an extension of that.
