  • Great place!

    "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."

  • You won't be upset if you book here

    "This place really was wonderful and looks just like the pictures. It was great to wake up to stunning water/city views each morning, and the condo had all the amenities we could have ever needed. We drove up from The States, so it was really great having a reserved parking space at no additional cost. That alone saved us at least $20 per day in parking elsewhere. The location is good, with many cafe's, restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery/convenience store options within a quick walk. We took a cab everywhere else we wanted to go like Gastown and Granville Island. Here's why I'm deducting one star from an otherwise five star option... The bed was a little firm for our liking. Not the end of the world, just not the kind of sleep we're used to. The entry way/common hallway also had a faint but clear odor of cigarette smoke. Not super pleasant for a couple of nonsmokers, especially when it's advertised as a nonsmoking unit. You really can only smell it if you're out in the hallway, or inside standing next to the door - but it's there. I know this is mostly out of their control as it's coming from other units, but I still figured it was worth mentioning in the review. My biggest hesitation when booking this unit was the fact that the owner (Georgia) wanted a check mailed to her for a security deposit, and then I was to pay her the full rental amount in cash upon arrival. A small caution flag was initially raised, as I would have felt much better paying for everything online through HomeAway, but the other reviews were so positive I figured the risk was low. I can tell you that Georgia was an absolute pleasure to deal with and if you have any similar concerns, you shouldn't. Georgia was very responsive and helpful in coordinating our stay, and even gave us easy to follow directions to the condo from Whistler where we stayed before coming to Vancouver. Very helpful to have when you're trying not to rack up an international data bill on your smartphone. She was there waiting for us when we checked in, gave us a quick tour, recommended some places to go/eat, and then left us to our vacation. Georgia was very pleasant and was available as much or as little as we needed her. The security deposit check we mailed in was handed back to us as we checked out, with no issues. The condo is clean. The location is good. The price is fair. Like I said, you won't be upset if you book here."

  • The BEST!

    "We cannot say enough about this place! Beautifully kept, outstanding view, lovely homeowners, easy access. And a great price for the value. I even left behind some cosmetics and Donna, the homeowner, is shipping them to me! We will definitely be returning."
