About the owner: Hi,
We are both born and bred on the West coast and never take the beauty of our area for granted. We have lived in Parksville for 19 years but work has taken us to Victoria. We are happy to share this magical piece of property.
Why the Owner Chose Parksville: We lived in two other homes in this neighbourhood known as San Pareil. Each home got a little closer to the ocean. When this property came up for sale we felt it was right for us. Our daughter grew up with the beach as her backyard. Beachcombing, swimming and nature watching.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have two eagle trees close by. Three lots up and three lots down the street. Don't be surprised to hear them talking in the mornings. A pod of killer whales is common. Just saw some March 2015. Deer are everywhere, especially in the summer when the campers are taking up their space in Rathtrevor Park.
This property is central to everything on Vancouver Island.
