Property description

Young at Heart Cottage is a family-friendly, 4 bedroom 2 bath home located in the desirable San Pareil neighbourhood of Parksville BC on Vancouver Island, across the street from the beach and ocean, bordering on Rathtrevor Park. Enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets, wind surfers, sea lions, eagles, seals, deer and more at the easy beach access steps away from the cottage. Walk the miles of beautiful sand bars at low tide and discover star fish, sand dollars, crabs and so much more. Enjoy a swim in the warmest water north of Southern California.

Enter Young at Heart Cottage to invitingly warm hardwood floors, and then up a few steps to the open living, dining and kitchen area, painted a rich golden shade reminiscent of Tuscany days. Warm wood cabinets and expansive countertops make the kitchen an inviting place to cook. Watch TV, enjoy a glass of wine and conversation while the food is prepared, or step out onto the sundeck, light the barbecue and listen for the eagles’ call. It’s all waiting for you.

Back to the entrance hallway now and down the hall to the master bedroom with king sized bed. The main bathroom with a large Maax shower, as well as the second bedroom with a queen bed. Then it’s down a few steps to the other two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and ensuite bathroom with Maax bathtub, the other with twin beds.

Young at Heart Cottage is well cared for, generously furnished with all you need, and beautifully situated to make yours a holiday stay to remember always!
