Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 - 6)

This is a privately owned condominium located in Pacific Shores Nature Resort in Nanoose Bay just minutes south of Parksville. The unit is 1800 square feet with open plan design, comfortable furniture and decorated in beige/sand colours in the iiving/ dining areas and ocean colours (blues/greens) in the bedrooms.

The grounds are lush and well maintained and overlook the sparkling waters of Craig Bay. We have the most incredible views of the majestic snow-capped inland mountains, and glorious breathtaking sunsets over the bay. You can walk through the gardens of Pacific Shores, or go down to the beach to climb rocks and find shells. You can walk or drive to the golden sands of nearby Rathtrevor Beach where the tide goes out almost the full depth of the bay and provides an incredible sandy playground for kids and adults alike. When you walk the beach early in the morning, the peace and tranquility experienced are refreshing and rejuvenating. You can collect shells, see jellyfish, whales, seals, bald eagles - an incredible variety of wildlife. You can enjoy sweeping views of Georgia Strait and watch the occasional cruise ship sail by. Parksville and Qualicum Beach are a short drive away and offer shopping, restaurants, galleries, hiking/walking trails, beaches etc. Our condo is about 30 minutes from Cathedral Grove Forest, Little Qualicum Falls, and Coombs (with the goats on the roof!). Victoria is a 2 hour drive south. Tofino and the Pacific Rim are a 2 hour drive west.

We have owned this condo for about ten years because we love the area - its outdoor activities such as kayaking, beach-walking, hiking, and golfing (there are several outstanding golf courses nearby, and mini-golf for the kids!) but mainly for its beauty (which I have tried to capture in my photographs and paintings displayed in our unit).

It truly is a magical experience to spend time in this wonderful location.

About The Owner

I am a grandma, an artist, a hiker and a golfer. My husband and I live and work in Alberta but visit Vancouver Island as often as we can to escape our harsh climate. Our children and grandchildren share our love of the island and all it offers in terms of its natural beauty and its outdoor activities.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose Vancouver Island

We have always loved the island's lush vegetation, the ocean, the beaches and the golf courses, as well as the mild climate (compared with Alberta). The view from our condo is breathtaking - ocean, mountains and sunsets - that's why we bought a property in this location.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy easy access to the beach for long walks in the morning when the tide is out and the air is crisp; golf courses close by; quaint towns to explore a short drive away; & the historic city of Nanaimo 20 minutes away with its naval history, its galleries and its shopping. Closer to home, in our resort, we have lovely grounds to walk in with ever-changing colours as the different perennials come into bloom. But the most unique aspect of our property is the stunning display of colours that fill the sky at sunset. This property is located in an artist's and nature-lover's paradise.

A perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time. The accommodation is wonderful - spacious and well equipped. And the view is fantastic and changes with the tide going in and out. There is lots to do on the island and I would thoroughly recommend it.

It was the nicest unit we have ever stayed in. 2 very private ensuites. Unobstructed water view.

  • 5 of 5

Unit was very clean, huge. More than enough room for 2 couples. Kitchen was vwey well equiped with pots and pans, spices and everything we needed. Wonderful covered patio for relaxing and watching the birds.

Plenty of clean towels.

I have been to this resort 4 times before. The RCI units I was in before were not nearly as nice. Unfortunatly the restaurant has removed the wonderful fish tanks.

Smoke and Water is not very inviting, so we did not eat there.

I will definitly come back to this unit.

There was lots of information in the unit for activities, restaurants, etc.

Outdoor and indoor hot tub jets were not working. It almost feels that the exterior is not being well maintained.

This unit was beautiful. Large dining table, small breakfast table, eating bar in kitchen. Leather sofas. Large TVs in living and bedrooms. Washer ans dryer in unit. Especially nice to have the street level unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments regarding our unit. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. New Management at the Resort has a plan to improve landscaping and return it to its previous high standard of beauty. Please report non-functioning hot tubs to either the Front Desk at the Resort, or to Maintenance. We invite you to return to our lovely home in the future.
