"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."

"We were greeted with chocolates and wine in a spotlessly clean home. The home is beautifully appointed and decorated by someone who obviously has a sense of style, colour, arranging of furniture, pictures, spaces. It was an aesthetic pleasure every time we came "home" to our Deep Cove retreat. The kitchen was very well equipped -- far beyond what we experienced in other vacation rentals. We loved making espresso or lattes... While we didn't come with children, there were excellent books and toys there for them as well. And what easy way of entering from the attached garage and the conveniently located laundry room!
We loved walking in the area. It is only about 8 minutes by foot from a charming "market/coffee shop" and about 15 plus minutes walking to "Moses' point", a beautiful, secluded beach with Saltspring Island so close you think you can almost touch it. We enjoyed watching many kinds of sea birds in the water and a bald eagle overhead, as well as a sea lion swimming near us.
The Muse Winery is a few minutes away as well as the best high end restaurant in the Victoria area. There is also an organic orchard on Chalet Road.
And then, if you use your car, you are 7 minutes from either the ferry terminal or from the airport. You are about 15 or so minutes from Butchart Gardens which we visited at least once a week. You are 5 minutes from charming "Sidney-by-the-Sea" where you will find a range of lovely restaurants.
The place is "secluded" and yet so connected to everything you may want to see on the Peninsula or in Victoria.
While our hosts were themselves far away, through phone or email, we were able to have all of our questions answered right away and little house details dealt with."

"My three sons and their families stayed with my husband and I for 7 days. My husband and I stayed 10 days. Our grandchildren are 5 years old and under and the house was perfect for them. Each of the two sons with families had their own space. Lots of area for the kids to play and decor isn't of the sort that we were worried they would break things. The stairway down to the ocean is accessible, just a few houses down. There is also a playground in this area. There are approximately 180 stairs down and 180 up so not for the faint of heart. Loved our stay and agree with the Atlanta review. Shopping is near by as is the highway that will take you to some of the best beaches in Canada."

"Beautiful suite, did not want to leave! Very helpful and accommodating hosts. The hot tub, BBQ and outdoor area were amazing and only a 2 minute walk from Chesterman's beach. This is definitely my first option for accommodation in Tofino."
