About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Private Lawn, Close To Nature And Rathtrevor Beach

Imagine - sitting on a large private wrap-around deck, with your favorite beverage, enjoying the sounds of the birds, the squirrels chattering as they run along the fence, and the gentle breeze through the trees. You look over the railing and see three deer slowing meandering across the private lawn. The deer stop, look up at you for a moment, and then casually walk off past the fence. The magic of the moment - true story. This could happen to you.
Relaxation at its best in a beautiful and private 1109 square foot, 3 bedroom, two bath luxury cottage, nestled among the tall trees, within walking distance to Rathtrevor Beach, this vacation rental has all the amenities needed for an enjoyable stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Brenda and Bryan live in Edmonton, Alberta, but have visited Parksville, toured and beachcombed on Rathtrevor Beach for many years. We have been in Parksville in all seasons, including summer (gorgeous) Thanksgiving and Christmas. We love it, no matter what the weather ... rain or shine, you arrive on the Island and you are suddenly transported to 'Island Time'.

Why the Owner Chose Parksville, BC, Canada:
We chose this property because it had three bedroom, and not just an open loft on th second floor. We enjoy its proximity to the beach and its unique features such as the private lawn space beside the cottage and the oversized deck space. It is close to nature and we really don't see the neighbors. You wake in the morning to the sounds of the birds. In the back you can watch the squirrels run back and forth along the fence. The Cottage got its name because of the deer that walk through the property. In short is a peaceful and relaxing space with all the creature comforts of home. We furnished th cottage with high quality furntiure and decor pieces. It is our home away from home, we hate leaving. Our 3 year old grand daughter wants to move there because she loves the comfy big bed. We want our guests to relax and enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage has a private lawn, an over-sized wrap-around deck measuring 10' by 35' across the back and 8' to 10' by 24' down the lawn side of the cottage. We added the privacy railings. There is plenty of room for dining and relaxation. The Cottage has been upgraded with granite in th kitchen and bathroom and comes with its own stacking washer and dryer. The kitchen is well appointed with all the utensils a chef could want. Parksville is close enough that you can walk into town for a coffee. It is close to the ferry, airport in either Nanaimo or Comox. Tofino and Long Beach are a scenic 2.5 hour drive. Victoria is close. You can ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon and beachcomb in the evening. Who could ask for more?
