Our home

Our home is 20 years old and built at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. The large front deck takes in views of the BC ferries, Gabriola and Newcastle Islands. From the kitchen window, one overlooks the Departure Bay and the city of Nanaimo just beyond. The house is modern and filled with natural light. The kitchen is well-appointed with airy family room and back deck, over-looking the garden and forest. The living room and dining room are facing the ocean views. 2 bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs, one with ensuite and king bed, the other a double bed.

Downstairs one can relax in another family room with TV and a second kitchen. Two more bedrooms, a sofa bed, laundry and a bathroom complete the ground level basement. Our garden is built on rocky bluffs with Arbutus trees. Relax in the hot tub or lounge in a deck chair or hammock.

Who we are

  1. Eric and I (Melanie) are in our late 50's with a large blended family and a growing number of grandchildren. We are a professional couple who would love to explore the world at greater leisure than hotels offer. We have enjoyed one very successful exchange to Europe and are encouraged by friends who have had great success and adventures! Adult children may come to visit us on our journeys, but primarily it is only the two of us.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Stephenson Point is one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the mid-island, with wonderful proximity to nature and city. We are perched above Departure Bay and back on to a woodlands teaming with lovely wildlife. We sit in a micro-climate with temperatures 2 degrees above local zones. Hummingbirds, rabbits and deer abound. Walk through trails to the ocean and take in the natural beauty. Close to many oceanfront parks, beaches, deep-sea diving, golf courses, biking and hiking trails-there is no end the easy access and sights. Only 1 1/2 hour drive to Victoria, 1 1/2 hour ferry ride to Vancouver, and 3 hour drive to Tofino, the Wild West Coast of Vancouver Island.
We are top-rated as an Island destination in Conde Nast.
