About the property

A 3 bedroom townhouse with stunning views and the largest in the Resort.

A 2500 square foot property overlooking Craig Bay. With great indoor / outdoor flows. It is great for big family trips or sharing with friends. It was previously used as the reception suite for wedding parties given it's size, it's layout and great artwork.

3 large bedrooms, all with adjoining bathrooms,coffee making facilities and televisions.

The master bedroom (275 sq feet) has a luxury super king bed, a jacuzzi bath, gas fireplace and outdoor access to the front deck and the views over the Bay.

The second upstairs bedroom (360 sq foot) has a luxury queen bed and a queen size sofa bed nearby. Ideal for a young family wants to share. Access to the outside balconies is ideal for providing a hide-away and for keeping the place cool in summer.

The other ground floor Bedroom also has a queen bed, tv, coffee making facilities and an outside private deck area (187 sq foot)

The Living Room is very spacious (286 sq foot) with cathedral ceilings and some great art work. It also has a comfortable queen sofa bed for those big family holidays.

Our home comfortably sleeps 10.

Recently upgrade satellite coverage, gives you TV on demand.

The Kitchen is open plan with a breakfast bar and great views over the Bay (138 sq foot + 192 sq foot). The morning views are even better when you are first up with your cup of coffee/tea in hand.

The adjacent Dining Room (168 sq foot) adds to the open plan feel and with a sky light it adds to the light and airy feel. Comfortably seats 8.

With a huge makeshift table, we have had many evening diners with over 12 people. Again great for adding to your holiday memories whilst enjoying family and friends watching the sun go down. You might even see our resident bald eagle if you are out there for lunch. The Patio area covers 300 sq foot + a lawn area of 800 sq feet).

About Gary McElroy

We live in New Zealand and bought the place from our great friends so that we could carry on a tradition of our annual summer family holiday's.

I have 2 younge girls who just love exploring for crabs and shells on the beach. It's one of the best parts of their year and they have it planned months in advance.

Gary McElroy purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Gary McElroy chose Nanoose Bay

Though we were best mates whilst I lived in the UK, the family that we bought it from are very much seen as our extended family. It's a great place to build happy memories.

What makes this townhome unique

Pacific Shores Resort is a great location for a holiday or break-away. We have one of the best units, certainly the largest, and likely the best views.

Great view from a peaceful and convenient location with access to great facilities. The house was very large and accomodating and made an excellent base from which to launch adventures. Having access to the pools and other facilities made this a great place to be if the weather happened to be less than ideal. And when we were ready for down time the house was quiet, restful and a good atmosphere to lay low. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others. Gary was good to deal with.

Very comfortable, excellent location, everything provided.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 spent 2 nights after Christmas here and we found the accommodation to be warm, welcoming, clean and comfortable. All of the comforts of home were provided, even books and games. The view and location by the beach was gorgeous, and made us want to return during the summer months. Many thanks to Gary and family, we would certainly stay here again!

A clean, well-equipped roomy home in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two eldest sons as well as their wives and infant sons travelled from Alberta to this beautiful home. There we enjoyed a week with our youngest son and his girlfriend who are living in Campbell River.

It was an amazing week of quality time.

The home had everything was very spacious and had everything we needed.

Amenities of every type were within very close driving distance.

Money well spent on a vacation very much enjoyed.

The homeowners were very accommodating as well with questions that I had previous to our arrival.

Oceanside Spa

Great condo, well appointed and excellent location. View of Craig Bay each day was special, tidal changes great. Parksville is a good base from which to visit many regional and provincial parks and other attractions. Qualicum Falls not to be missed!

Parksville town Centre is just over 5 minutes away by car with it's handy supermarkets and family restaurants.

Woodgrove Sopping Mall is the opposite direction 10 minutes away. With a cinema and plenty of shops it is a nice distraction if the weather is not perfect.

Some great local beaches, Rathtrevor and Qualicum are 10 and 20 minutes away respectively. As tidal beaches you can walk for ages and they are lovely and clean. Great for the family or relaxing walks. Of course you can walk out the lounge and within a minute you are on the rocks and sand of Craig's Bay. Spectacular vistas all day, but especially at dusk.

Family Visits;

Cathedral Grove Woodland Reserve-Cameron Lake
