Nestled amidst trees, gardens and groomed paths, Woodgrove Manor is an outdoor oasis.
Footsteps from shopping and dining, and with easy accessibility to the Island’s northern communities, Woodgrove Manor is a 43-suite home, centrally located in Vancouver Island’s harbour city of Nanaimo. Nestled in the scenic Woodgrove neighbourhood, its interiors are inspired by nature, bringing the outdoors in with oversized windows and natural light.
I am immensely grateful for the care and affection the Woodgrove team so kindly and gently dedicated to my mom. Thank you so much.
