Mermaid's Kelp B&B & Art Studio


At the Mermaid's Kelp B&B we are pleased to offer a variety of comforts and luxuries. Our desire is to make your stay with us a most pleasurable and memorable experience. In addition to your privately accessible en-suite bedroom  which has a warm and amorous aura with a queen bed, fireplace and ocean view, you have for your own use a beautiful living room with two large balconies, den/music room to relax and listen to your favourite music and a solarium with a large hot tub and exercise equipment. All this in a new "Bed and Breakfast" addition to an authentic log frame home where you will enjoy a gourmet breakfast with your hosts. We also prepare vegetarian and vegan breakfasts on request at no additional charge.

Mermaid's Kelp B&B is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island in the north part of the City of Nanaimo.You may want to consider making us your home base to visit other island destinations. The west coast of Vancouver Island is about a two hour drive and Mt. Washington for great winter skiing is a one hour drive. The City of Victoria, capital of B.C., is about a one and a half hour drive. The warm water beaches of Parksville are a short twenty minute drive away.

We are close to good restaurants, shopping and most other amenities. Our one acre property has large fir and cedar trees. Song birds abound and the sight and sounds of the near nesting bald eagles will probably be what you first see and hear in the morning. Wild deer, raccoon families and rabbits often visit our property.

The name "Mermaid's Kelp" is derived from the unique kelp art created by your hostess and artist, Barbara Plichtova, the acclaimed former Czech stage and film actress. Her exhilarating art creations (see 'pictures' link above) are displayed throughout the B&B and you may visit her art studio. Her signed limited edition prints and other works are available at the Mermaid's Kelp B&B.
