Nestled away on Protection Island with city views, moments away from a public dock, you will find this quaint 784 sq. ft., 2 bed, 1 bath, open-concept, cabin-style home. Built in 1983 with European influence upon a solid rock & surrounded by Japanese rock art gardens - all backing onto a park. Serviced by city water & sewer. New metal roof in 2017 & electric heat with wood stove. Home needs updating but has solid bones throughout & sits on a foundation with crawl space. The island is just a short 5-10 minute, private ferry ride from the City of Nanaimo (runs hourly) & is home to a very unique community that is waiting for you to explore its tall forests & sandstone tidepools! You can also take your power boat, canoe or kayak, yacht or sailboat right into the downtown marina. School-day ferry passage for the local kids is funded by the school board, & the island's famous floating pub (The Dinghy Dock) also has a restaurant area for families & offers live music for adults.
