My husband and I stayed at this B&B for a 3 night break. The room was so clean and tidy. I absolutely loved the beach decor.
Pauline greeted us the following morning (as we arrived very late) with a gorgeous home made breakfast which we ate lying in bed with an amazing view of the ocean and mountains.
Great location, steps to the beach.
Absolutely loved this and couldn't recommend it more.
Thanks , Pauline!

“An absolute Gem!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our 1st experience at a B&B and couldn't have found a better location! We truly enjoyed the quiet evenings on the guest's private patio listening to the waves break on the shore. The suite was exactly as shown in the posted pictures and Pauline's breakfasts were truly amazing! We traveled to Nanaimo for the the 2014 BC Summer Games and the easy access to the Island Hwy made this location perfect. Thank you Pauline - we would recommend your Art Sea Cottage to all our friends & family and would definitely stay with you again when traveling to the Nanaimo area again!
