We stayed at Eles the night of our wedding in early August, we arranged to show up after our reception was finished so we didn't arrive until midnight. We entered the house to find a delicious snack and some champagne on the counter waiting for us. So lovely! The bed was so comfy, breakfast was scrumptious, and we just loved... More

Barbara, our host, provided such a warm welcome, and throughout our stay became more of a friend than a host. She has a wealth of interesting conversation, as well as providing really fabulous breakfasts and every comfort and fine touch to our stay. We enjoyed the luxuriously appointed lounge, plus bedroom, bathroom and dining room for our sole use. It... More

Stopped in Nanaimo to bird Buttertubs Marsh and the Neck Point/ Piper's Lagoon area. This B&B is close to both; in addition, it's a quick, enjoyable walk down the road to small neighborhood beaches and more birding. Went to Buttertubs early in the morning, came back to a delicious, healthy breakfast. Very comfortable stay: as others have described, the hosts... More
