Reviewed 28 May 2012

Warren and Verna offer first rate accomodations overlooking the water - so peaceful!! Their hospitality goes 'above and beyond' with shuttle service to Nanaimo's airport. When I was initially making inquiries into B&B accomodations for my holiday, Verna's prompt (email) reply was followed by a telephone call! -just an indication of how personal the service is!!

Thank you so much for your generous review. Yes, the scene here is spectacular yet so peaceful - we never get tired of it ourselves.
We have thoroughly enjoyed your company, and it's a real pleasure meeting you. We are so happy you had a wonderful visit with your relatives. We hope to see you sometime when you come visit the beautiful Vancouver Island again.

We were fortunate enough to spend a night at this lovely home. Warren and Verna treated us like friends, not customers. The room was most comfortable and the breakfast absolutely delicious (and plentiful). They recommended The Crow and Gate for dinner and it was wonderful and fun. Cannot recommend Beachside Garden B & B more highly.

Verna and Warren were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were amazing. Beautiful home and the B&B is so tidy and clean. We stayed three nights, quiet and peaceful with the most beautiful scenery. Loved every minute and will go back again.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We have enjoyed your company, and are delighted to be able to make your acquaintance. We are happy that you enjoyed not only our place and breakfasts, but the beautiful scenery as well - the ocean and the neighbouring Gulf Islands. It is truly spectacular! We look forward to have you back again - all the way from another paradise - beautiful New Zealand!

We stayed for three nights at Beachside Garden B&B over the Easter weekend and the reviews we found on TripAdvisor did not disappoint.

Verna and Warren have planned and designed a wonderful 'home-away-from-home' for their guests. The B&B is bright, modern, spotlessly clean and well-appointed with careful attention to detail: separate guest entrance, laundry, lounge and dining area (complete with sink, fridge, and hot beverages). Each room is spacious with a cozy bed and linens, private ensuite bathroom, small flatscreen TV, individually-controlled thermostats, etc.

As nice as it is inside...you will not want to spend much time indoors. The gardens and views are amazing! There is a patio (including covered seating) and beautiful terraced rock and flower gardens that provide direct access to the water. We enjoyed seeing eagles (spotted 12 one morning), otters, seals and sea lions in plain view from both inside and outside. WOW!

Verna and Warren are welcoming and gracious hosts. We enjoyed chatting with them and receiving information about the area including ideas on things to see and do, restaurant tips, etc. Each morning we were presented with delicious and artfully prepared breakfasts that included smoothies, fresh fruit, omelettes, baked blueberry French toast, home-made muffins (with a care package to take with us) - YUM! Again, the care and attention to detail was so evident.

Verna and Warren, thank you for making our trip so special and all your information and help. Best wishes for continued success. We look forward to seeing you again on our next trip to the Island.

It was a real delight meeting you both and getting to know you. We are so happy that the herrings were spawning during your stay, attracting lots of sea lions, seals, otters and bald eagles – providing fascinating sights for your entertainment!
You are wonderful guests - we are humbled by your appreciation of everything we did, including the B&B amenities and layout, room furnishings, breakfasts, etc. We have thoroughly enjoyed your company and conversations. Thank you so much for your comprehensive and generous reviews. We truly look forward to your return.

Warren and Verna were absolutely the most perfect hosts for our stay. They have an absolutely beautiful, peaceful and quiet location that would more than suit any occasion. My wife and I were lucky enough to hold our wedding there, and we could not be happier with the outstanding support and assistance offered by Warren and Verna. The rooms are amazing and elegant, and the comfort of the beds and the bedding will surely give you a great night sleep. They are a very special couple and have a very beautiful place. We will definately be coming back again and would absolutely recommend their place to anyone. Thank you very much Warren and Verna, look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to host this very special event – your wedding, and to share your joy! You are a great couple, and you couldn’t have picked a more perfect day – the sun was shining, the ocean was calm, together with all the signs of spring – flowers blossom, birds chatter, eagles soar. Absolutely beautiful!
We deeply appreciate your generous review. We wish you a life time of happiness and fulfillment together. We hope you'll drop by to see us again.

We stayed one night at Beachside garden and are so glad we did.

We booked last minute as somewhere out of Nanaimo for our 4 day road trip and were encouraged by the excellent reviews. We were not disappointed and seeing is believing for how special this accommodation is. As we were able to book at such short notice this must have been because we were off-peak and not enough people know about this place yet. It could also be as it is an out of the way spot which requires a car to get to but that is all part of the charm.

Verna & Wayne are fantastic hosts and their purpose built 3 roomed B&B annexe is fabulous. We were invited through to their living room on arrival and shown our lovely modern ensuite room (Peony). We were welcome to go out to their own little piece of stoned beach any time (2 separate door for guests, front one with security code), there was an amazing view of the ocean from the kitchen area and a tasty freshly cooked breakfast which prepared us for the drive over to the west coast. We would recommend for singles, couples & if there were 6 of you could share all 3 rooms & the communal space which is what we've recommended to my sister who lives in Vancouver.

One minor note for the hosts is that the bed in Peony was very comfortable but quite creaky. Not a problem but just not ideal. Eveything else was amazing and we would stay there again without a second thought.

Thank you V&W.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are equally glad that you had decided to stay with us. Your speculations for being able to book at such short notice were accurate – early on in the season in part; as well, we are only 1 year old, and are just gradually being discovered!
We are delighted you have enjoyed not only our room and breakfast, but the spectacular ocean view! We are indeed flattered that you recommended us to your sister and friends. We are very happy that we have met you, and have enjoyed your company. We hope you’ll visit us again.
