"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."

"Six women- friends from grade school and university- have just stayed for our second annual visit at Dutchess Manor. It is the perfect spot for a group of this size. The house is meticulously clean and well appointed, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need, including a champagne bucket! With five bedrooms and a den, we were each able to have our own space. Mornings, we had coffee sitting on the beach right in front and evenings we shared happy hour on the expansive waterfront lawn or glass fronted deck. Weather couldn't have been better and the regular sight of eagles overhead, herons wading on the beach and cruise ships passing at night all added to our idyllic six days together. We laughed, sang, cried and generally carried on as lifelong friends are meant to do. Thanks for making our reunions so special. We will be back!"

"A great vacation stay. Spacious 2 bedroom was just right for the 3 of us. Proximity to the beach was an added bonus...we spent hours walking the beach during high and low tide! Well stocked kitchen and linens. Internet was slow, which was good as it kept us offline and bad, because it kept us offline. Connection was fast enough for email and Skype."
