“We stayed 5 nights at Druanne's home in Nanaimo and it was an exceptional experience. Druanne was efficient, welcoming and helpful with details and recommendations. The home was stunning, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The location was unsurpassed -situated on the waterfront in a quiet estate where hillside homes all face the breath-taking vista of islands, mountains and the bay. All shops and amenities were still a minute away. This view greats you from every window, veranda and the magnificent garden. It was well-located for exploring the Island but difficult to leave of a day because it was such a relaxing and beautiful place to stay. I have enjoyed many lovely holiday destinations and couldn't recommend this home more highly. ”
