Choose Rathtrevor Beach Haven for your next vacation and look forward to returning home with some very special memories! We are situated in the privately owned Tanglewood complex, right on fabulous Rathtrevor Beach, in the heart of the international tourist and golf destination of Oceanside, at Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Vancouver Island, particularly the Rathtrevor/Oceanside area, is noted for it's spectacular natural beauty, temperate climate and wide range of outdoor activities including outstanding golf courses and deep sea fishing.
Fantastic location.....Mere footsteps to the beach. Our particular unit has a very unique location with features that few others in the area can rival. Bordered by ocean and forest, we have a remarkably tranquil, private setting. Rathtrevor Beach is renowned for it's magnificent beauty, miles of soft sand and safe, warm, ocean swimming. Couple that with being nestled beside the enchanting old growth forest of Rathtrevor Provincial Park, with it's miles of hiking and biking trails meandering along the ocean and through the forest..... And you have a winning combination for a fantastic getaway.
The best of both worlds... The beauty of staying at our Beach Haven is that you have all the advantages of being in the heart of an international tourist destination while still feeling miles away from anywhere in this peaceful, secluded setting where you can watch the deer and rabbits feed at the water's edge, right outside your window. You are less than a 5 minute drive to Parksville and 20 minutes to Nanaimo, approximate population 10,000 and 100,000 respectively.
Fantastic day-trips... Within an approximate two hour scenic drive in any direction, visit the charming capital city of Victoria to the south, stopping in at Chemainus, famous for it's murals and Duncan, the 'City of Totems', go north to the beautiful Comox Valley and smaller islands of Denman and Hornby or head to the wild and rugged West Coast with the world famous Long Beach and it's quaint fishing villages of Tofino and Ucuelet.
Simply relax... A great alternative is to spend your days relaxing on the fantastic beach or exploring the neighbouring provincial park, on foot or by bicycle. Take in the beauty of Rathtrevor, with the ocean set against the stunning backdrop of snow-capped coastal mountains, while Eagle's soar and Blue Herons feed. At the day's end, decide whether to fire up the barbeque and dine in on our private roof deck, picnic in the park or enjoy one of the many restaurants in the area. After dinner, choose to either take an evening stroll on the beach or seawall, relax by the fireplace, have a beach fire, watch for Alaskan cruise ships sailing past, experience one of many local entertainment options or simply stargaze.
A home away from home... As many of our guests have remarked, our Beach Haven is all that they anticipated and more. This 3 bedroom, 2 full bath condominium is spacious and bright, with over 1200 square feet, vaulted ceilings and numerous windows. It has all of the conveniences one would expect to find in a luxury condominium. Large, fully equipped kitchen, separate dining room, three TV's, 2 DVD players, internet access, gas fireplace, gas barbeque and patio table and chairs on our private roof deck, grassed yard, covered carport, storage area for bicycles etc. The condominium sleeps six comfortably with two queen pillow-top beds in separate rooms and 2 twin beds in another bedroom.
Come to Rathtrevor Beach Haven and experience all that we and Vancouver Island have to offer.

Joyce purchased this Condo in 1993
Why Joyce chose Parksville
We love nature and the ocean in particular, hiking, biking, beach fires and wide open spaces. Rathtrevor Beach is a very special place that has provided all that and so much more, being only 5 minutes from the City of Parksville with all of the amenities and attractions of this international tourist destination.
What makes this Condo unique
We purchased our Beach Haven before it was built, therefore had our choice within this 20 unit, upscale complex. It has the best location on the beach and we have what we feel is one of the best locations within. The location appealed to us because of it's natural setting away from the courtyard and next to the park. This offered so much potential for privacy and tranquility, with lovely forest and ocean views besides. It was a great choice and we have never looked back!

Sports & Adventure Activities
The property was beautiful with an amazing view. We were especially impressed with the owners. They were very easy to work with and extremely accommodating. We will definitely stay here again.
We just got back from the Island staying at Joyce's condo and absolutely loved it. The condo was very clean and had all that we needed. Beds, linens, Internet, TV, comply couch etc etc! . We are cooks and she had the kitchen all supplied for us, even storage containers for leftovers!
The location is perfect, Steps away from the beach, very private, but yet still close to the near by cities/towns.
Every morning we woke up and saw/walked/sat on the beach, and did it all again in the evening, what more could you ask for!
Joyce is the best, any questions we had, she answered and took care of very quickly. Thank you Joyce.
The only problem we had. .... Is that we had to leave!!!!
Will definitely go back next year, and you should also. Just not in September as we will be there again!:)
We just returned from Beach Haven condo, after a wonderful 3 day weekend with family. The condo is exactly as advertised; bright with lots of windows, a great ocean view, very clean and well stocked. It was really well stocked! The kitchen had everything necessary, there were beach towels, books, extra bedding, kids sand toys, kids puzzles and adult games. Located right next to Rathtrevor Park, there were walking trails and of course the sandy beach. The owners were excellent to deal with, answering all questions There were clear written instructions posted by the entry door inside that explained the workings of the condo; where to find keys, etc. They even followed up with an email a few hours after our arrival to ensure everything was okay.
If you are looking for a rental in the area, this one is great and exactly as advertised.
Great location right by the beach. Lots of windows make this place very cheery. Even on rainy days you can enjoy staying inside, cooking, playing cards, or just lounging by the fireplace. Nice & quiet location. Very clean & comfortable. Had a great little getaway!
Homeowner, Joyce, was very friendly & helpful. Thank you so much!!
Perfect Family Getaway
This condo was perfect for our two families! It is spacious, very clean and the location is very convenient. The layout of the condo was great for being able to nap my 3 year old while the two 8 year old's still had lots of room to play. The beach is visible from the window and just a short few steps away from the condo. The condo was equipped with everything we needed including extra beach toys & activities in the large storage area. The owners are very accommodating and easy to deal with. I would recommend this property to my friends and family, we will definitely be back.
Idyllic Holiday Home
Our family of five adults spent an idyllic week in this lovely, comfortable and extremely well maintained home. Beach access is literally a few steps from the door and Rathtrevor Provincial Park is also steps away if you want to run or walk off the beach. The house looks towards the ocean and sides onto the park offering both a sea view and views of fir and arbutus trees. We enjoyed the resident blue heron who spent his day in a tree above the house. As avid cooks, with an interest in buying and preparing locally grown food, we found the kitchen to be exceptionally well equipped and managed to eat all our meals en plein air on either the upper or lower deck. Joyce and Max made us feel welcome and they were easy to communicate with throughout the entire booking process and stay. We wouldn't hesitate to return and we highly recommend this first class holiday rental.
