About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms all on one level with vaulted ceiling and large windows.

The Tanglewood Beach House is a sanctuary of tranquility and sophistication, tastefully furnished to reflect the relaxed West Coast lifestyle. These comfortable accommodations offer you an experience of seaside living at it's best. The Beach House is centrally located on beautiful Vancouver Island, only minutes driving distance from Parksville, a quaint seaside community.

The 1150 square foot beach house is situated all on one level for stair-free living with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full gourmet kitchen, dining area and living room. The open plan lends a relaxed feel with beech wood floors extending throughout the living areas to create a low allergen environment.

For your enjoyment there is a private outdoor patio with gas barbecue that opens onto a lawn and green space. For your convenience there is full size washer and dryer with HE laundry detergent provided.

A five minute stroll takes you down to the world renowned Rathtrevor beach.

Each bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed, dressed with fine cotton linens, extra pillows and down duvets. You'll find plush bathrobes in each bedroom closet to enjoy during your stay. Comfort and solitude are yours!

Both bathrooms have spacious showers, heated floors and are stocked with luxurious, plump towels. Take time to light some candles and linger in the Master Bathroom's deep soaking tub.

Stretch out on the sofa and enjoy the 42” television with digital cable and DVD player. Or, curl up with a book on the window seat next to the natural gas fireplace for a lazy morning.

The Tanglewood Beach House is an ideal retreat for time away with friends. Wine glasses provided.

Throw in a CD or plug in to the Bose Wave and enjoy a meal at the dining table. It comfortably seats six to eight people for family dinners with a booster seat provided as well as children’s dinnerware. The vaulted ceilings and windows offer beautiful views of the Fir, Cedar and Arbutus forest just outside the doors. Double French doors open onto the patio and the majestic old growth forest of Rathtrevor Provincial Park.

During the day build sand castles, hunt for seashells, fly a kite and roast marshmallows over an open fire on the beach. When the tide rolls in over the sun-baked sand, the warmed water is unbeatable for swimming and saltwater fun. Beach toys, cooler, wagon and towels are provided for days full of exploring on the beach.

Special considerations are made for children. We provide plastic dinnerware, booster seat, step stool, play pen and beach toys! There is also a wagon you can load with snacks and toys to take down to the beach.

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.
