This unit is customized with Dogwood model cottage so it stands out from the rest in the Oceanside Resort: the master bedroom and loft have ultra-quiet ceiling fans, the loft has a built in closet with barn door closures as well as having a window that opens to look onto the great room. The window lets light in, but also provides added security and ensures a quieter environment for those sleeping in the loft.
We also have a lockable glass storm front door with fantom screen to allow greater airflow and light into the house. The backyard, shaded by large evergreen trees, is totally enclosed allowing children to play on the large deck that is complete with natural gas BBQ and comfortable patio furniture.
We are constantly upgrading the cottage and recently painted and installed new blinds. The kitchen now has a gas range and convection oven as well as a new fridge/freezer with ice maker and water dispenser.
The open concept cottage is warm and inviting and perfect for families and friends.
A gas fireplace transforms the open concept main floor into a cozy retreat when the weather turns cooler.
The cottage sleeps six comfortably. There are two bedrooms, each with new king size beds and a new queen sofa bed in the living room.
The master bedroom is on the main floor and has a bathroom with tub as well as walk in shower.
The second bedroom is in the loft complete with a full bathroom with walk in shower. Installed custom made glass and a window in the loft to increase privacy and safety. Now, you can have people sleeping in the loft, while still using the main floor area.
There are new flat screen TVs with a wide range of channels to suit every age and taste in each bedroom and living room, and there is free secured wireless internet. A landline permits free local calls.
Laundry is easy with a washer/dryer in the cottage.
Sorry, no pets allowed.

Conveniently located mid-island, Parksville is a year round destination ideally located for the outdoor enthusiast with easy access to miles of beaches, fishing, hiking and biking trails, five local golf courses, and kayaking around protected bays and islands.
Our cottage is in a wonderful resort with a terrific Bistro called Taste, as well as a day spa and salon. You are within walking distance of an old English pub on the ocean called the Black Goose, and Tigh-na-Mara that has a great lounge and full service spa. A corner store is a short walk if you need to pick up milk, bread - or better yet - treat yourselves to an ice cream cone!
Visit nearby Coombs where there is a wonderful market and restaurants, complete with goats that keep children entertained with their antics.
Nanaimo is 20 minutes away with great shopping, theatres, restaurants as well as ferry terminals and an airport.
Side trips can be made to Coombs, Cowichan Bay, Comox and Victoria. In the winter, storm watching in Tofino/Ucelet is something to behold, and there is skiing at Mount Washington.
It is one of the few places in the world where you can ski in the morning, and golf or surf in the afternoon!
