“We came to the Painted Turtle Guesthouse with 18 young swimmers from the PSW swim team and had a great 3 night stay. The large Great Room was well set up, and the kitchen facilities made it easy and fun for team meals and games. Pool time availability at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre helped complete the trip! PS... so nice and clean!” Pacific Seward Swim Club, Vancouver, BC
“We were totally impressed with how clean everything was kept. Nothing but good words have been spoken about our stay and you can rest assured that we will be back, if not our particular crew, then another combined boat from Abreast In The Boat. The location to the site is great. And last but not least everyone was so nice. Thanks a lot.” Susan McMinn, Abreast In The Cove (Dragon Boat Festival)
