Ranked #14 of 18 Gabriola Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 July 2013

What a fantastic place to stay! The room was gorgeous and comfortable, the food was delicious, and the view was wonderful. I never wanted to leave!
A special thanks to Judy for being so friendly and understanding when we missed our ferry and didn't arrive until after 11pm.
Definitely a must visit Guest House. I will be back!

Stayed for three nights in May 2013. Manana is nicely situated on the island: a 5 - 7 minute drive to The Village & Nanaimo ferry terminal, and close to Sandwell Bay provincial park. It's inland, but on a high point overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately, the weather was not great while I was there - I would have loved to try the pool, but it was just too cold! The suite is attached to the house, but has its own entrance. You can hear the occasional footsteps above you, but I never heard any at night. The kitchenette is handy - it has a sink & mini fridge, and everything you need to make tea & coffee. Breakfast was always tasty and filling and came with a nice array of fresh fruit. It's served to you in the suite, so you can eat in, or have it outside while enjoying the view. Everything was essentially clean, although there were a few cobwebs in the corners.

The owners, Doug & Judy were really super friendly and helpful. I'm glad I was able to find such a great place on a busy holiday weekend!

Cannot say enough great things about this B&B. Private entrance to your very own deluxe and fully appointed suite. Not a detail is missed. Fridge, tv, ipod stereo, it's ALL here. The breakfast was absolutely amazing and served to your room on a tray. Eat outside if you please, too! There's also a pool which is very rare on Gabriola. Trust me, I'm picky - this place is a must visit!
