"WOW! This condo is absolutely beautiful. We love waking up in the morning to look out at the ocean. Views were so spectacular. Quiet place. I would highly recommend this condo to my friends. There are so many hikes within 30-60 minutes driving. Pool and hot tub was nice to dipped at the end of the day. Owner of the condo was so friendly and accommodating. Thank you for sharing your condo. We will be back for sure."

"Wow what an amazing place. First impressions walking in to the beautiful open concept house was the 14ft. cedar plank table and the wall of windows over looking the ocean. Every morning coming downstairs looking out that wall of windows felt like Christmas morning. This place is awesome. Big, bright, clean really private all the modern appliances you could want in a fully stocked house. Close enough to town for a nice walk. Mostly loved spending time on the back deck watching the ocean, looking for whales spouts out over the water. At night fire pit right on the beach and the first time I ever saw stars that went down to the ocean - horizon. I would love to be here for different seasons of the year. Walked on Long Beach, had lunch at Wickinninish Inn, took in story telling with Roy Vickers - famous Native Artist and purchased a print and had it signed by him. Toured through Tofino and Ucluelet all the little shops there's something for everyone. I am blessed to have spent time with these strong women whom I love dearly and admire tremendously. This was the greatest place for a getaway. Thanks Barb you rock!"

We stayed at 1193 waterlilly lane for 7 days and it was a beautiful experience. I was greatly impressed by Mr. Cooks amount of effort on Waterlilly's back yard. He built a rope swing for his guest s and was immensely generous and lent us his bikes , kayaks,canoes,SUP (stand up paddle boards ) and his princess raft/barge. Mr. Cook gave us free rope swing and kayak lessons. Sneaking in a few stories and a joke or two about his "skirt" for kayaking. By looking around the place you could see that Richard has a sense of humor. For instance the "Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten" sign like most other's,made me laugh. I really loved seeing the heron Hemmingway on the princess one morning. There was a mediocre hot tub. It was not extremely clean. I noticed a some what itchy rash appear from the hot tub.
Now time for the interior, The bedrooms were all very nice. I really admired the stained glass on the master bedroom door. Kiri's room (richards daughter) was beautiful. The room was very spacious without the crib setup.
The clock was 20 minutes fast but nothing serious. The other bedroom was nice I admired the Australia bed spread. The clock was fast as well. It was a smaller bedroom but still nice. The living room/kitchen were nice I give them a double thumbs up. The glasses were quite cool though. Both bathrooms were nice but in the basement bathroom we noticed a musty smell. You could tell there was water damage in the house. I would recommend adding carpet or removing the carpet tack. It hurts to step on! Waterlilly was a great idea Richard !
Good job Richard
I reccomend staying here"

"I started bringing my family to Parksville 8 years ago for summer holidays. 4 years ago we found this property and have come back almost every year since! We found the 2 bedroom suite perfect for us and our 2 children each with their own single beds. It is ground floor with a view of the inner grass court and pool. It is also only a 100 yard walk down to the shore and the best beach sand we have ever built castles in. Our best memory is when the tides come in late in the afternoon of a hot day and we swim in the warm waters until it is totally dark. We have stayed in this unit 3 times and recommend it to others and will be back. They are family-oriented and even stocked the suite with a few sand toys, games and movies just for our kids! Only a 30 minute drive to Cathedral Grove, 15 minutes to Coombs/Nanaimo/Qualicum Beach."
