About Dorothy's Guest House


   Dorothy's Guest House is located in Nanaimo on beautiful Vancouver Island , BC.

     I am often asked "what's the difference between a B&B and your guest house".  Simply put, at my guest house you are welcome to bring your food and prepare a meal at anytime in the well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a full size fridge & stove and includes cupboard space for all your supplies. This way you can eat what you want, when you want it. 

     I have lived in this beautiful home since 2008.  On the main floor of the guest house there are 2 separate bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room and a large bathroom with double sinks.  My personal living space is located on the top floor of the house.  I share the kitchen and deck area with the main floor guests.

    There is also a self-contained  private 1 bedroom suite located in the lower level of the guest house. Please go to "Rooms & Rates" for a full description of each option. 


     Amenities include:

Free on-site parking and  free high-speed internet for all guests. 

There is free onsite  laundry facilities for guests staying 1 week or longer.  


      The guest house is in a great location whether you are coming to Nanaimo for a vacation, studying at Vancouver Island University (VIU), on a work placement, a sports tournament, etc.
