Property description

The Tanglewood Beach House is a sanctuary of tranquility and sophistication, tastefully furnished to reflect the relaxed West Coast lifestyle. These comfortable accommodations offer you an experience of seaside living at its best. The Beach House is centrally located on beautiful Vancouver Island, only minutes driving distance from Parksville, a quaint seaside community.

The 1150 square foot beach house is situated all on one level for stair-free living with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full gourmet kitchen, dining area and living room. The open plan lends a relaxed feel with beech wood floors extending throughout the living areas to create a low allergen environment.

For your enjoyment there is a private outdoor patio with gas barbecue. For your convenience there is full size washer and dryer with laundry detergent provided.

A five minute stroll takes you down to the world renowned Rathtrevor beach.

Each bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed, dressed with fine linens, extra pillows and down duvets. You'll find plush bathrobes in each bedroom closet to enjoy during your stay. Comfort and solitude are yours!

Both bathrooms have spacious showers, heated floors and are stocked with luxurious, plump towels . Take time to light some candles and linger in the Master Bathroom's deep soaking tub.

Stretch out on the sofa and enjoy the 42” television with digital cable and DVD player. Or, curl up with a book on the window seat next to the natural gas fireplace for a lazy morning. The sofa opens into a comfortable double bed to create additional sleeping arrangements.

Throw in a CD and enjoy a meal at the dining table. It comfortably seats six to eight people for family dinners with a booster seat provided as well as children’s dinnerware. The vaulted ceilings and windows offer beautiful views of the Fir, Cedar and Arbutus forest just outside the doors. Double French doors open onto the patio and the majestic old growth forest of Rathtrevor Provincial Park.

During the day build sand castles, hunt for seashells, fly a kite and roast marshmallows over an open fire on the beach. When the tide rolls in over the sun-baked sand, the warmed water is unbeatable for swimming and saltwater fun. Beach toys, cooler, wagon and towels are provided for days full of exploring on the beach.

Special considerations are made for children. We provide plastic dinnerware, booster seat, step stool, play pen and beach toys! There is also a wagon you can load with snacks and toys to take down to the beach.

Car: Recommended

The Tanglewood Beach House is centrally located on beautiful Vancouver Island, between Nanaimo and Qualicum Beach, only minutes driving distance from Parksville. It is nestled in the cozy neighbourhood of Tanglewood on Rathtrevor Beach. You will enjoy private access to a magnificent two-kilometer stretch of wide, sandy beach. A short stroll on a paved walkway will take you to the ocean, which at low tide recedes almost a kilometer, providing an ideal place for everyone to play in the sand and explore the shoreline. Time spent at the Tanglewood Beach House can be as busy or as laid-back as you wish as there are plenty of sites to see in the area for daily excursions. Let us be your guide. Upon confirmation of your booking, we'll send you our Guide To Life at the Tanglewood Beach House; a handbook filled with contact information and excursion suggestions to make your vacation as memorable as possible.


Owner info

About the owner: I love travel and have traveled throughout the United Kingdom, France and the United States. I can truly appreciate a clean, well maintained property when I'm away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Parksville:
We stayed in this area for a number of years for family vacations and enjoyed our time because it was so much fun and so relaxing. The proximity to the beach, provincial park and the activities in the area make it an ideal spot for time away.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Through my travel experiences, I have given a great deal of thought to creating a unique vacation rental. A comfortable environment is key to your time away and we have thought of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The Tanglewood beach House is unique in that way with great attention to detail: - the beds are comfortable and the linens are crisp for a good night's sleep - the kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils - the outdoor areas provide plenty of space for relaxing or play.
