Beautiful condo on public beach
"I found the condo itself to be wonderful. It is a nice building, and the unit itself is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The kitchen in particular was one of the best equipped I've seen in a rental. The bed was comfy (though the pillows left a little to be desired), and it was impeccably clean throughout. There is a barbecue available, and a high end gas stove if you're interested in doing your own cooking.
Dealing with the owners was a great experience as well. Everything was well organized, they provided info not only regarding the condo but about local walks, attractions, etc.
The location is convenient for shops, restaurants, and of course the beach. It was a short drive to the many local attractions. It has great views of the sunset.
The only downside for us was the proximity to the highway and the parking lot for the public beach access. While the building itself was perfectly quiet (I never heard any of our neighbours and everyone was very friendly and considerate), we found it impossible to sleep with the windows open because of the loud vehicles and slightly boisterous crowd that would show up to hang out on the beach later in the evening. We would inevitably end up being kept awake by motorcycles on the highway or music being played from a car in the parking lot.
Overall I'd certainly still recommend this property, and we had a very nice stay."

"A great resort with easy access to the beach! The condo was well equipped , clean and the owners were lovely to deal with! We hated to leave!
The ground floor unit was easy for going back and forth to the pool, which was literally right out front. The resort was well maintained and an excellent spot for families. A great expanse of grass was right out the patio door, for little ones to run about!
We did trips to Coombes, Englishman River, Sand Castles in Parksville and Mini golf! All were close. We were able to venture out in the morning and be back in time to hit the pool and/or beach in the afternoon!
We sure hope we can return and spend more time in this condo!!
Thank you Judy and Larry!"

"We truely enjoyed our stay with our daughter (18 months). The location just across from the National Park with nice quiet trails and beach access made it almost unneccessary to go anywhere else. From Parksville it is only a short drive in all directions so we did go to see other parts of the island,too. The cottage itself is equipped better than I could ever have expected it to be. Beside all cleaning supplies we truely appreciated beach towels, toys, swimming noodles etc. I haven't ever stayed in a holiday house I didn't miss anything in the kitchen! The bed was comfi, the bathroom really nice-we were totally happy with the cottage."

"This cottage has all the amenities. It's clean, comfy, spacious, and well-equipped. There are a lot of things to do near-by, so it's a great location. The owners have a lovely gem of a property at Oceanside Resort. We didn't even go to the swimming pool or hot tub, as the cottage was so cozy with its fireplace! We would adore to come back to this place of ultimate relaxation! Lots of places to walk the dogs nearby, too."
