Spectacular Views and Spotless Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently returned from our first trip to Vancouver Island. We particularly enjoyed our stay at John and Coral's home in Parksville. The self contained suite was brand new and spotless and had all the amenities including a barbeque for your own private use. In the morning we would sit on the deck with our coffee looking out over the Strait of Georgia and keeping an eye on two bald eagles sitting above in the tree. In the evening we'd return for a glass of wine watching the cruise ships go by in the distance. John and Coral were excellent hosts and provided lots of suggestions for restaurants and activities in the local area. Be sure to check out Salt PIZZERIA which makes terrific pizza. This is the perfect property for a couple looking for a relaxing vacation. We will be back!

Amazing place and fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing place! Couldn't ask for anything better as the place has everything you need. Even zip lock bags and lots of cookware. We could have easily stayed longer. You have lots of privacy, amazing view of the water and wildlife. Easy to get into town to pick up food and groceries. Coral and John were gracious hosts. They even delivered towels for us to take kayaking. The apartment really have everything you could want - amazing view, quiet, wifi, tv, easy to get into town, easy walk to a beach and fishery (where we bought fish for dinner several nights), perfectly kept property. Highly recommended and will be back next time we visit Parksville.

Relaxation and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment for 2 persons,extremely well maintained and equipped with everything for your needs.The bed is extremely comfortable and the sea view from every window is fantastic.The garden is immaculate and a great place to relax and watch the eagles and the marine traffic.Good location for access to highway both north and south but very quiet.We enjoyed trips to Coombs,Cathedral Grove and the drive along the ocean route past Qualicum Beach .We only reached the ferry for Denman Island where we found a great fishmonger.Hope to go further on our return trip next year as we have already booked .Thanks to Coral and John for their hospitality ,they were excellent to deal with with and gave us good information about the area .

My boyfriend and I stayed at this property during July 4th weekend this summer. Coral was very responsive and easy to work with. The suite is very clean, private (because you have your own entrance and living area) and it has an amazing view of the bay. Plus you're right by the water! Coral and her husband were sweet and welcoming, it made us feel at home during our short visit. Our only complaint is that we wished that we had stayed longer. You will not regret staying here. I highly recommend visiting the Grotto Spa. We had a couples massage and it was the best massage we'd ever had. It was a great way to end our stay in Parksville. We look forward to visiting this property again next summer!

Beautiful escape in the fall

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely suite in Parksville for 5 nights in October to bird and relax in the area. The suite itself is beautiful and well-appointed. It provides stunning views of the ocean and had everything we needed to cook meals. We were captivated by the two eagles on a nearby tree and saw over 20 species of birds from the suite throughout our stay. The location gave us great access to Parksville and the surrounding area. It was quiet and peaceful throughout our stay and we had sufficient privacy. I would recommend this suite to anyone interested in spending time on the island and we look forward to a return visit.
