Medical Tourism

Convenient, affordable, welcoming – great reasons to choose the Painted Turtle Guesthouse while you are visiting Nanaimo for medical reasons.

Affordability! The Painted Turtle Guesthouse is an affordable accommodation option while you are in Nanaimo for medical appointments.  We offer weekly and monthly accommodation rates September to June annually – please contact us for prices and availability. 

Comfortable atmosphere! The Guesthouse offers a home-away-from-home environment with friendly welcoming staff, self-catering kitchen, onsite laundry, lounge room with fireplace, reading material including daily Globe & Mail newspaper, recycling & sustainability initiatives, paid parking directly across the street and a primary bus stop on our front door step.  Our rooms are simple and cosy, have complimentary high-speed wireless and are telephone and TV free.  

Convenient location!  Only 4km from the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, minutes from Caledonia Medical Centre and several downtown dentists, convenience to medical services and easy transportation options is likely a key consideration for you.  We are in the heart of downtown & close to a shopping mall, library, a great selection of cafes & restaurants, professional services and the famous harbourfront walkway for recreation options.

Accessibility!  Please note that we are a 1875 Heritage property that has been fully renovated and restored, but we have some access restrictions that may be important to some medical visitors.
