Parksville condo description
Choose Rathtrevor Beach Haven for your next vacation and look forward to returning home with some very special memories! We are situated in the privately owned Tanglewood complex, right on fabulous Rathtrevor Beach, in the heart of the international tourist and golf destination of Oceanside, at Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Vancouver Island, particularly the Rathtrevor/Oceanside area, is noted for it's spectacular natural beauty, temperate climate and wide range of outdoor activities including outstanding golf courses and deep sea fishing.
Fantastic location.....Mere footsteps to the beach. Our particular unit has a very unique location with features that few others in the area can rival. Bordered by ocean and forest, we have a remarkably tranquil, private setting. Rathtrevor Beach is renowned for it's magnificent beauty, miles of soft sand and safe, warm, ocean swimming. Couple that with being nestled beside the enchanting old growth forest of Rathtrevor Provincial Park, with it's miles of hiking and biking trails meandering along the ocean and through the forest..... And you have a winning combination for a fantastic getaway.
The best of both worlds... The beauty of staying at our Beach Haven is that you have all the advantages of being in the heart of an international tourist destination while still feeling miles away from anywhere in this peaceful, secluded setting where you can watch the deer and rabbits feed at the water's edge, right outside your window. You are less than a 5 minute drive to Parksville and 20 minutes to Nanaimo, approximate population 10,000 and 100,000 respectively.
Fantastic day-trips... Within an approximate two hour scenic drive in any direction, visit the charming capital city of Victoria to the south, stopping in at Chemainus, famous for it's murals and Duncan, the 'City of Totems', go north to the beautiful Comox Valley and smaller islands of Denman and Hornby or head to the wild and rugged West Coast with the world famous Long Beach and it's quaint fishing villages of Tofino and Ucuelet.
Simply relax... A great alternative is to spend your days relaxing on the fantastic beach or exploring the neighbouring provincial park, on foot or by bicycle. Take in the beauty of Rathtrevor, with the ocean set against the stunning backdrop of snow-capped coastal mountains, while Eagle's soar and Blue Herons feed. At the day's end, decide whether to fire up the barbeque and dine in on our private roof deck, picnic in the park or enjoy one of the many restaurants in the area. After dinner, choose to either take an evening stroll on the beach or seawall, relax by the fireplace, have a beach fire, watch for Alaskan cruise ships sailing past, experience one of many local entertainment options or simply stargaze.
A home away from home... As many of our guests have remarked, our Beach Haven is all that they anticipated and more. This 3 bedroom, 2 full bath condominium is spacious and bright, with over 1200 square feet, vaulted ceilings and numerous windows. It has all of the conveniences one would expect to find in a luxury condominium. Large, fully equipped kitchen, separate dining room, three TV's, 2 DVD players, internet access, gas fireplace, gas barbeque and patio table and chairs on our private roof deck, grassed yard, covered carport, storage area for bicycles etc. The condominium sleeps six comfortably with two queen pillow-top beds in separate rooms and 2 twin beds in another bedroom.
Come to Rathtrevor Beach Haven and experience all that we and Vancouver Island have to offer.
The Beach Haven is a non-smoking, no pets unit.
There is professional maid service before arrival and after departure.

A little bit of Paradise
A little bit of Paradise
My granddaughter turned five this year and this was our second visit to Tanglewood. from the day we came back last year my granddaughter was marking off the days on the calendar till we could come back. She has already started marking off days on the current calendar for next year again. I cannot say enough about the location, the privacy, the cleanliness of the unit. It is the complete package with a beautiful condo, very well equipped, leaving nothing on the "I would like to have" list. We enjoyed nearby Coombs, Parrot Refuge, Butterfly Museum and Bumper Boats with water cannons. This unit deserves a ten. Thank you again and look forward to next years visit.

Perfect Summer Vacation
Perfect Summer Vacation
This past August, we had our second visit to Beach Haven. Our family (now 6 adults) has been travelling to Parksville every summer for many years and we all agree that Beach Haven is the best place we have ever stayed in. It suits our family perfectly. Comfortable, cozy and quiet with everything we could need for our stay and plenty of space for everyone. When the tide at Rathtrevor Beach is out, it feels like you can walk forever. In the summer when the tide comes in over the hot sand, the water provides wonderfully warm swimming. Also when the tide is in we can easily carry our kayaks to the waters edge. Kayaking here is ideal with many seals curiously following you. Great day trips include Coombs, Qualicum village, Little Qualicum Falls or Englishman River Falls. The owner has been a pleasure to deal with. Can’t wait for next summer!

Lovely Rathtrevor Beach Condo
Lovely Rathtrevor Beach Condo
We were so pleased with our stay. This condo looks out onto the beach, and into the wooded park. Everything was perfect inside. There are three bedrooms, and four beds, so our mother/daughter reunion allowed us each our own bed! You can view the beach from the two balconies as well as the front room which has the cosiest chair for curling up in. The master bedroom has a lovely seat by the window, so we four were all able to find private space for our quiet time in the morning. The beach is awesome, changing all the time, we were hooked. But like Emily Dickinson said of us outsiders: Bred among the mountains Can the sailor understand The divine intoxication Of the first league out from land On a more prosaic note, everything was clean and nicely furnished and we had all the necessities of life. When I couldn't find the peeler, Joyce told me where it shoud be and offered to bring one over if I didn't find it! (turns out it was there all the time) I would definitely recommend this property and would love to come again. Next time I would travel lighter...we all missed our husbands as we dragged our suitcases up the stairs...but the view was worth it!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The 6 of us (3 young children and 3 adults) fit very comfortably in the condo. The unit is very clean and well-kept. The kitchen is well-supplied; there are lots of dishes, including plastic wear for the patio or children to use, and lots of containers with lids for holding leftovers. The main room with living room, kitchen, and dining room have high ceilings that let in lots of natural light. It's very comfortable to sit there and look out at the view. We also saw deer next door in Rathtrevor Prov Park a few times through the living room window. The owner was very friendly, easy to communicate with, and answered all my emails very quickly. The beach is less than a min walk away and beach chairs are provided, so you don't need to bring your own. I would definitely rent this condo again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Three generations stayed here for two weeks and we had a marvelous time! Lots of space within the well maintained unit for young kids to play, while older folks relaxed and/or read in a quiet nook. Very handy to the beach, where we spent a lot of time! And having beach chairs and toys supplied was a welcome bonus. The Owners were readily available to answer any concerns (like the cable going out!) and prior to our stay, sent excellent information re: how to access the unit, dispose of garbage, etc. We've already recommended this property to others and we'll definitely be back!!

About the owner: We are small business owners who live in the Rathtrevor Beach area. Unlike many vacation rentals by owner we are always close at hand should you need anything and we take a hands on approach to ensure our condo is maintained to the highest of standards.
Why the Owner Chose Parksville:
We love nature and the ocean in particular, hiking, biking, beach fires and wide open spaces. Rathtrevor Beach is a very special place that has provided all that and so much more, being only 5 minutes from the City of Parksville with all of the amenities and attractions of this international tourist destination.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We bought our Beach Haven before it was built, therefore had our choice within this 20 unit, upscale complex. It has the best location on the beach and we have what we feel is one of the best locations within. The location appealed to us because of it's natural setting away from the courtyard and next to the park. This offered so much potential for privacy and tranquility, with lovely forest and ocean views besides. It was a great choice and we have never looked back!
