Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Parksville for a family Christmas reunion. The house was cozy, clean and fully equipt with everything we needed. A British pub restaurant is 5 min walk away. The beautiful beach and park is also a short walk away. It even snowed on Christmas day! I can imagine this getaway would be amazing in the summer. Parksville is a five min drive away and has all the shops we needed to make our stay complete. I highly recommend this beautiful home.

Well appointed townhouse, 5-min walk from Rathtrevor

  • 5 of 5

We were six - grandparents, parents and two young children - staying at the townhouse for two weeks in August. The finishing of the house, as well as the kitchenware, bedding, furniture, etc., were of high quality and very comfortable. The layout of the house was perfect for us, with the parents and youngsters in the two upstairs bedrooms and the grandparents in the downstairs bedroom. The children enjoyed the wooded area out back that borders Rathtrevor Park, and everyone appreciated the quick walk through the Tanglewood complex to Rathtrevor Beach.

One minor complaint was that the stock of toilet paper and dishwasher soap was sufficient for one week, but we had to buy more for the second week of our rental.
