Tanglewood Stay

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely wonderful place to stay while exploring Vancouver Island - perfectly located. This beautiful beach house in Tanglewood is just a couple of minutes walking to a renowned beach and Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. You can walk for hours! The beach house is equipped with all that one needs to experience a care free vacation. They have thought of everything. We most highly recommend staying here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really enjoyable week as it was very relaxing. We were really impressed. We had everything we needed and much more besides. It was great having the beach at the end of the road. We hope to return soon. Kent, United Kingdom

The Tanglewood Beach House is centrally located on beautiful Vancouver Island, between Nanaimo and Qualicum Beach, only minutes driving distance from Parksville. It is nestled in the cozy neighbourhood of Tanglewood on Rathtrevor Beach. You will enjoy private access to a magnificent two-kilometer stretch of wide, sandy beach. A short stroll on a paved walkway will take you to the ocean, which at low tide recedes almost a kilometer, providing an ideal place for everyone to play in the sand and explore the shoreline. Time spent at the Tanglewood Beach House can be as busy or as laid-back as you wish as there are plenty of sites to see in the area for daily excursions. Let us be your guide. Upon confirmation of your booking, we'll send you our Guide To Life at the Tanglewood Beach House; a handbook filled with contact information and excursion suggestions to make your vacation as memorable as possible.
