Our waterfront home is located in the seaside City of Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

We have a mild climate and at any time of the year, the area is perfect for long walks on the beach, or along the many trails as well as cycling through the quiet neighborhoods. The Oceanside area (which Includes Parksville) has all the amenities for a wonderful family holiday. Lots of parks, trails, spas, golf courses and beaches.

The City of Nanaimo is 20 minutes away where you’ll find lots of shopping, recreation and entertainment.

Mount Washington Ski Resort is an easy one hour drive. A two hour ferry ride takes you to Vancouver, a huge multi-cultural feast of sight seeing, shopping and special events.

From Vancouver, Whistler Village (2010 Olympics) is a short ferry ride and a scenic drive on the Sea to Sky Highway.

The world famous Butchart Gardens and our Capital City of Victoria are only 2 hours away. Winter storms are fabulous to watch at Pacific Rim National Park and Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island is approximately a two hour drive.

From the most southerly point, it is an eight hour drive to the north end of the island which includes some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Victoria has a rich cultural life. Many tourists come to watch the whales. We have seen killer and grey whales swim past our house!! Our last Orca whale sighting was March 23, 2014.

The house is in a great neighborhood! Framed by Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, the Pacific Ocean and Englishman River Estuary. Deer, herons, and eagles are a common sight.

Lots of windows, open plan, living/dining/kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a den, 2 bathrooms, fireplace in livingroom. The deck with (hot tub) runs the length of the house on the ocean side and we have a nicely landscaped yard. . Have a look at the attached photos. We don’t always get snow, but we did last winter. It never lasts more that a few days!

New appliances, Big screen TV, PVR, highspeed internet, Hot tub on deck.

Dining, Shopping, Golf, Skiing, Hiking, Art Galleries, Spas. Everything is nearby.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

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.
