View videos of our homes on Canpage and YouTube.

Quality accommodation for work or vacation, incoming or outgoing residents

If you need a temporary home in central Vancouver Island, Lakeview Homes is your home-away-from-home solution. Better than a conventional rental or hotel room, Lakeview Homes offers high-quality, short-term accommodation that will give you unforgettable long-term memories.

Reasons to book Lakeview Homes include:

  • Working in Nanaimo on contract jobs, short-term projects, or temporary assignments;
  • Providing accommodation for visiting friends or relatives;
  • Moving to Nanaimo but needing a place to stay while waiting for your house purchase to close;
  • Coming to Nanaimo and Central Vancouver Island on vacation;
  • Needing an alternative home while your home is undergoing renovations or major repairs;
  • Requiring short-term housing after selling your home but waiting for the end of a school year or work assignment prior to moving; and
  • Coming to Nanaimo for short-term training programs or courses.

Lakeview Homes offers a range of quality short-term and vacation accommodation: waterfront homes for vacationers, retirees, and those seeking to get a 'jump-start' on enjoying the island lifestyle; affiliated homes including an executive condo especially suited to professionals working in the city; a rural home perfect as a short-term home-away-from-home; and a property in Port Hardy which is popular for individual, couple, group and family holidays.

Whatever your reason for coming to the central island, Lakeview Homes gives you the comfort and privacy of a home away-from-home. For reviews by past visitors, click here to check our guestbook.

Central Location for Vacation or Temporary Accommodation

Lakeview homes in Nanaimo are centrally located on Vancouver Island. For those seeking vacation accommodation, Lakeview Homes are with easy distance of many popular central Vancouver Island tourist attractions, such as the Nanaimo waterfront, Chemanius murals, Cathedral Grove, and much more. Your Lakeview home gives you affordable tourist accommodation with luxury features like natural stone fireplaces, lake views, outdoor decks for vacation lounging and room for up to 10 people. You can bring your whole family to your Nanaimo vacation home and relax in complete privacy in this vacation hideaway. Lakeview is wonderful for family reunions or get-togethers or simply just a great family vacation.
