"Dana's cottage was indeed cozy and comfortable for our young family with a 2 year old and a 7 month old. Dana was kind enough to email to see if we needed the playpen, highchair and the sofabed set up in the loft before we arrived. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a few essentials (water, milk, coffee, cereal) and treats (wine for the adults!! and some beach toys and small patio chair for our toddler). It was a pleasant surprise and made it more relaxing settling in knowing that we didn't have to stop at the grocery store the same night we flew in. The cottage was clean and well equipped with everyday household items, toiletries, and everything you could want to bring to the beach (towels, beach bag, balls, noodles, sand buckets, shovels etc). The outdoor patio has a canvas/shade you can pull across the top so you can relax in the shade. Dana touched base with us first thing the 2nd day to make sure we were all settled and comfortable which was super thoughtful. The cottage is located a few minutes drive from the beach or a 10-15 minute walk. There is also a mini golf course right next door and a few restaurants within walking distance. Everything else you need in town is just 5 - 10 minutes away which makes it an ideal vacation spot for families with young children that need to nap. Thanks Dana and we hope to be back!"

"Our family converged for Thanksgiving weekend and what a beautiful treat staying at #39 Sandhaven at Tanglewood. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom and there was more than enough room for all five of us! It was beautifully decorated, clean and had all the amenities you could want. Just a short drive away from town and a short walk to the beach. What more could you ask for!"

"The cottage was amazing, clean, cozy and close to all amenities. The beach was only a 5 min bike ride and indoor/hot tub was right a cross from the cottage. We had great times all day at the beach and in the evening at the pool. The resort is a great central location, only 30 mins from the ferries and mins away from downtown Parksville. Very well maintained cottage and property. Absolute gem nestled south of Parksville. Our family will be definitely going back for years to come."

"My wife and I stayed here with our two teens (18 and 15) for a week this past September and had an awesome stay. We especially liked the view of the ocean right from the suite and the close proximity to the ocean made for easy frequent beach combing. The suite itself is very nice and well maintained. The indoor pool, hot tub, and weight room on the main floor of the building are nice features especially in the evenings after dark or if the weather doesn't cooperate.
The location of the condo was ideal not only for beach access but also for being within walking (or short drive) distance to numerous restaurants and all sorts of shops. It is also only about a 5-7 minute drive to Coombs which is home to the famous "Goats on the Roof". We went there several times during our stay. Parksville also serves as a great central location for exploring many different areas of the island such as Cathedral Grove, Englishman River Falls, Nanaimo, Coombs, Port Alberni, etc.
Our family had a great time and we highly recommend this property. It was our first time at this property but our third VRBO rental and all three have been amazing."
