"By far the best condo I have rented on Resort Drive. The accommodation was very comfortable, and spacious with a spectacular view of Rathtrevor park and the beach. The unit was very well stocked and it was especially nice having access to beach chairs and an umbrella. Quiet at night. Had a great holiday."

"My wife, son, dog and I stayed at Tall Trees for 3 nights. We had been there before, and we will absolutely go back again. The folks who owns the property are wonderful people, and were so friendly to us that we felt like we were going to visit family. We went there for a nice relaxing getaway, and we had a fantastic time. Thank you so much for your hospitality!!!"

"My husband and I came to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We loved exploring beautiful Vancouver Island, and Dana's Cozy Cottage was ideally placed as a great jumping off point. Dana gave us a warm welcome with flowers and sparkling cider to celebrate. How thoughtful! The cottage is perfectly appointed for a couple or a young family, as there is a hide-a-bed in the upstairs couch (in the cozy loft area). The unit had everything we could have wanted, including a coffee maker, a popcorn popper, a washer and dryer (with a laundry basket and detergent waiting for our use), plus a whole selection of dvd movies to watch and a wide selection of books upstairs. We had a wonderful time in this comfortable, modern cabin with high ceilings and lovely furnishings. We were very comfortable and at home. Thank you Dana for the warm welcome and comfortable accommodations!"

What was the greatest about Tanglewood? Trick question, EVERYTHING.
"Tanglewood #3 is a wonderful place to stay for a vacation with friends. There were six of us, and nobody died. But most importantly the space is large and not cramped at all. One of the greatest things about this location was having the beach as our back yard. [YEEEH] Being able to have access to the beach 24/7 was definitely a plus. Whether it was watching the sunrise, going for a stroll along the beach, making sand castles, or just gazing over the ocean from the balcony, the beach was always there for us.[like a good friend who will answer your calls at 2am in the morning]
The interior of the house was clean and comfortable. The interior decoration was quite aesthetically pleasing. The house also has built in surround sound which is perfect for watching movies on the hdmi compatible TV in the living room area. Though this might be irrelevant for some people, we found the wifi quite good as well. There were six of us using it at once on 5 phones, 2 ipads, and 2 laptops and it still held up.
Though we were unable to see stars due to the clouds, we saw the potential in the upper balcony to be a wonderful stargazing location. Did i mention there are two decks? THERE ARE TWO DECKS, and one of them has a easy to operate barbecue on it whilst the upper deck has a table with a parasol and chairs so eating outside on the upper deck is not only viable, but encouraged so you can soak in the view and enjoy time with the people you care about at the same time. [PRO TIP: you have to force the handle past the resistance to open the door to the upper deck]
One of the few flaws this location has, is that it's perfect and we have to leave. But seriously the sound of the ice maker in the refrigerator is the SPOOKIEST THING in the middle of the night.
The location of the resort itself is also one of the great things that Tanglewood has to offer. Minigolf is a walking distance away. As previously stated, the beach is right there. It is quite close to many sight seeing locations such as Coombs, Englishmen River Falls, Nanaimo and Cathedral Grove. Unfortunlately we were unable to go to hornlake caves this year due to our unpreparedness for the equipment required. But if that is something you are interested in checking out, remember to pack proper shoes and jackets.
Long story short: This is place is great. 10/10 would stay again"
