  • Description

    Description

    We are setting up a retreat for music and bicycles. The house will need some serious work including;

    -terracing the hillside, gardening
    -moving furniture
    -some light construction

    Welcome to the West Coast! People come here from all over the world to visit the scenic waterfront and islands. The house is located on a bicycle path only 2.5 km from downtown Nanaimo. The beautiful Bowen Park (swimming pool, recreation), and Millstone River (with nature trail) are located in the backyard.
    We would like to promote cycling and live music (jazz, Celtic, folk).

    What else ...

    Nanaimo is a funky old city with parks, statues, and beautiful scenery. The Harbourfront is a boardwalk on the ocean side which is beautiful (see picture). The city has lots of funky cafes, second hand shops, recreation centres (swimming pool, fitness room, skating rink, and library).
    Many young people attend Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo for its arts programmes.
