Car: Recommended

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;

Butterfly World- Coombs

Cathedral Grove Woodland Reserve-Cameron Lake

Coombs Market + Goats on the Roof- Coombs

Little Qualicum Falls

North Island Wildlife Recovery-Errington (before Coombs)

Oceanside Place Ice Rink- Parksville

Paradise Adventure Mini Golf- Parksville

Ravensong Aquatic Centre- Qualicum

Riptide Adventure Mini Golf- Parksville

Tiger Lilly Petting Farm - Errington

World Parrot Refuge- Coombs

Best Restaurant- Cuckoo's at Goats on the Roof-Coombs

Best thing to do- grab a few deck chairs and take in the views and chill.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose British Columbia, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
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.
