Parksville cottage description

Welcome to Morning-Glory Guest House!
Close to Rathtrevor Beach Park this delightful two bedroom cottage has all that you need for short or long stays - in our wonderful summers or mild winters. Relax by the warm fireplace, explore the Oceanside area and play on the sunny beaches, this vacation rental provides comfort, convenience and accessibility to all the area has to offer.
Morning-Glory is a designer decorated Arbutus cottage in the Oceanside Village Resort. This cottage has all the amenities and upon opening the door, this feels like home. The welcoming bottle of wine along with the cuddly terry robes are there for you to begin relaxing the moment you arrive.

Designed with the outdoors in mind, the cottage has two bedrooms. The windows let in the glorious sunshine and the comfortable design of the cottage encourages rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

The kitchen has a sensible and pleasing design. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities - including patio glassware, dishes, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker, blender, mixer and placemats. In keeping with the nature theme on the floor and backsplash, the beauty of the wood stained shaker cabinetry compliments the warm golden and russet tones of the rest of the cottage.

The dining room table comfortably seats six. Imagine playing board games at the dining table or planning the next day's excursion in this beautiful part of the world.

The living room has a sofa bed, TV with DVD player, VCR and a stereo. It opens onto the sunny deck which has patio furniture and a barbecue for those who enjoy outdoor meals. The vaulted pine ceiling in the living and dining room gives a wonderful light and airy feel to this cottage. The ceiling fan and gas fireplace are there to ensure you are comfortable whatever the weather. Watch the TV (cable included) or videos/DVD's or curl up with a book. A supply of games, puzzles and dvds provide hours of entertainment.

The master bedroom has it's own TV and DVD player. The bed is a very comfortable queen size. The second bedroom has a double bed. Warm terry robes are supplied for the adults and each bed has a down duvet. A tub and a separate shower adorn the bathroom and all towels are supplied.
