Welcome to Old City Quarter!!

Some people will tell you that North Nanaimo is the ONLY place to buy a home. That couldn't be further from the truth!!  Not only is the Old City Quarter alive and well, it is a vibrant and THRIVING gem, one is is sought out for being  one of the few truly walking neighbourhoods in Nananimo. The area is a charming mix of re-vitalized heritage homes and buildings. It is perfect for those who desire to live nestled near a collection of eclectic specialty shops, boutiques, and a diverse selection of cafes and restaurants, all near the heart of the city!


Homes here date from the late 1800's to early 1900's, with a few new, modern condominium complexes thrown in for flavour.

Downtown is a mere 10 to 15 minute walk, and there is plenty to see along the way.  This area is a shopper's paradise, with one of a kind shops lining the streets.

And while this is a high density area, there are still plenty of parks and green space around. Nob Hill Park has interesting rock formations, and Robin's Park hosts numerous baseball games through out the year.





And the views!!! Old City quarter homes have some of the best ocean and mountain views, for a fraction of the cost from other neighbourhoods.

Some of the AMAZING restaurants within walking distance include Asteria's, a delightful Greek taverna, funky Delicados has great south western flare, Coach & Horses, and  Milton Street Pub, with some of the best pub food in town, Bistro Taiyo for amazing sushi, and New York Style Pizza for more than just pizza! 

Prefer to eat at home?  McLean's Specialty Foods has everything from haggis to curried lamb sausage to 150 cheeses! The artisan A Wee Cupcakery Bake Shop offers an aspiring array of specialty baked goods.  Love to cook? Superette Foods Nanaimo is just down the street  . . . the best corner grocer on the island!

Into fashion?  Damsels Fashion is all about ladies, Gates & Gifts caters to your wrought iron relish, and Hartmann & Co. is for those with an antique obsession.

Shop till you drop!
