From the time we arrived until we left after 9 days we felt we were at home. The bedrooms were very well decorated and private, each with a balcony. The view from each was of the water and landscape with sightings of seals, deer and rabbits. Downstairs we had the run of the living room with an exit to the...

My family and I had the most incredible Vancouver Island vacation and it is mostly because of the home away from home we were honoured to stay at. From the breath taking views to the beautifully decorated and comfortable home, we fell in love with this place. My husband, 5 year old and I slept so well in the beautifully...

I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before so was a bit nervous. But wow how convenient! The room was awesome, ocean view. Having the coffee ready and a fabulous hot breakfast every morning was incredible. Cher is a terrific host. It was relaxing and I really felt comfortable and at home.

The location of the B&B is amazing and extremely relaxing. In the morning, as you are enjoying a wonderful breakfast, you can watch the local wildlife and the ferries go by. Cher, the hostess, is a very kind and welcoming person. She makes you feel at home and has a lot of local knowledge regarding the good places to eat...

I stayed at Cher's beautiful, ocean front home in sunny Nanaimo for one week in August 2012 while attending the Insite program. Cher was warm and welcoming, and allowed me plenty of time to settle in and enjoy my surroundings. The breakfasts were delicious, and Cher cheerfully accommodated my many dietary restrictions. Anyone looking for a warm and comfortable place...

I had the pleasure to stay at Stephenson Point Seaside B&B in early July when I attended an Insite session. Cher is an EXTREMELY accommodating hostess and her home is beautiful. The view of Departure Bay was gorgeous. Breakfasts were beautifully prepared and always fresh and tasty. I will definitely choose Cher's B&B if ever I am in Nanaimo again!

We stayed here in July 2012, and had a lovely stay. Agree with other reviews. In addition, we spent some time in the gazebo that is on the path winding down to the shore, and wish we had discovered it sooner - a very comfy place to spend some time observing boats, floatplanes, birds etc. Thank you, Cher and also...

I really enjoyed my week stay at Stephenson Point! My room was very comfortable with an amazining view of the Nanaimo Harbor. My breakfast was delicious and always served with a warm smile and insightful conversation. Evenings were finished sitting in a comfy chair watching all the harbor activities. Thankyou Cher for a safe and enjoyable stay!

We stayed on 11/12 June. A beautiful home, beautiful location and as reported by others, excellent hospitality. Huge, well equipped room with south facing balcony to watch boats and flying boats come and go. Wild life in the garden below and the local eagles soaring above. Sandra's breakfasts are a joy varied and colourful thanks to garnish from her garden....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
*Your Home Away From home* Located in central Nanaimo, in the heart of Departure Bay, is your ultimate relaxing seaside getaway. We are 5 minutes to the Ferry (you can watch yours arrive). We are 8 minutes north of downtown and only 9 minutes south of Woodgrove Mall, the largest on Vancouver Island. We are blessed with a spectacular waterfront location overlooking Departure Bay with Jesse and Newcastle Islands and the surrounding mountains. We invite you to relax in our hot tub or take a walk down to the gazebo that's perched just above the water. Munch on complimentary cookies with tea and coffee on your private deck, surf the net using our free wireless internet, or pop in a DVD in your room at the end of a long day. We look forward to meeting you! ... more   less
