Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Drift cottage was perfect for our trip to Parksville for a family wedding. It was easy to coordinate with Debbie and Gary, and we found the cottage to be clean, organized and convenient for all of our activities.

WE LOVED IT! we are sad to be leaving beautiful Parksville and this amazing house. The bumper cars and mini golf at the end of the street were so much fun too! We can't thank Debbie enough for opening up her home. We will definitely be back and we will definitely be recommending Seadrift cottage. Thank you - Jess Norman and the Fernie family xx

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of March at Sea Drift. The cottage was spotless, and looked exactly like the photos, which is sometimes not always the case in my experience with VRBO. The resort itself was very quiet and clean even though there were a few cottages who had dogs. We walked on the trails at Rathtrevor Beach or along the beach when the tide was out. While my husband golfed I spent time at the Tigh Na Mara Grotto Spa down the road - wonderfully relaxing! Thank you Debbie and Gary for allowing us to stay in your charming cottage.

Absolutely lovely home away from home. Quiet and clean with all the comforts you could need. Just bring your groceries. Our family of 5 was very comfortable. We hiked on Rathtrevor Beach and played mini-golf next to the resort. Location is good proximity to drive into Parksville or out to the highway for longer trips. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sea Drift. The place was spotless and clean, great location, lovely place and even better than we imagined. Sea drift provided us with more than we expected with so many little extras like beach towels, extra bedding & towels, beach toys, BBQ with propane, fans and so much more. It was beautifully decorated and I wish I could live there. Thank you Debbie.

Enjoy the treasures of Vancouver Island from our beautifully appointed and cozy cottage. We are located in Parksville in a resort setting, Oceanside Village Resort, right across from the entrance to one of the Island's gems - Rathtrevor Provincial Park. Here you can enjoy the seemingly endless sandy beach, beautiful ocean vistas, play in the summer's warm ocean water and explore the myriad of walking-hiking trails - all at your doorstep.

It is important to note that as owners of the cottage, we manage and clean the cottage ourselves so we can assure attention to all details.
