1 Bedroom Cabin Beside An Amazing Swimming Hole On The Nanaimo River
About Mindi Pettitt
We are Dave and Mindi Pettitt, your hosts for your stay at Nanaimo Riverside Vacation Rental. We’ve lived in Nanaimo for the past 11 years. 2005 Mindi took Dave out on a scouting venture. “Let’s just drive around and discover something new about Nanaimo.”, she said. “I hear people like the Nanaimo River.” Here we are over 15 years later, having bided our time. Waiting for the right time and place to buy our dream home on that very river. We’ve travelled around the world and even lived in Mexico for half the year, but there is no better place in the world than our very own piece of waterfront property. A perpetually renewing swimming hole, at the edge of the mountains. We welcome our guests to come and discover the hidden beauty of Vancouver Island.
Mindi Pettitt purchased this Cabin in 2015

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
The cabin was excellent and amenities ample. You were both welcoming and very helpful.
That said, my disappointment was in its location. I was somehow under the impression that the cabin was more secluded, rather than located in a residential section. People staying right next to the cabin and screaming party-goers on the other side were totally unexpected. I do understand though, that such things occur in residential neighborhoods. We have that stuff at home too, which is why we were trying to get away. You might change your advertisement to reflect the cabins' residential situation. Anyway, as I said, it was a very lovely cabin and you were great. Personally though, I would not repeat the experience. For our next years trip, we'll strive again to find something more remote. Thank you.
Great time with all the comforts of home!
This was too be the summer of swimming and this lovely River side cottage helped to make it so. Many thanks to our hosts!
Cute guesthouse/cabin just outside of Nanaimo
Stayed for three nights with my husband and our dog. We loved the property and the proximity to the river. I wish we had more time here on the island. This property made it very easy to tour the island and come home to a restful night in a very comfortable bed. It was a very clean property and we felt right at home.
My family of four and one dog could not have had a better time. The cabin was perfect and the beauty of the river is impossible to describe.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Come back anytime.
We loved the location, great place for swimming.
Could have had a bigger sign to see were it is.
Loved the quiet
