Great location and beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house/condo was wonderful! It fully met all of our needs. It was very quiet; had deer walking in back yard. Kitchen very well equipped. Beds very comfortable. Bathrooms very clean and large. Really felt at home. It was the perfect size for 3 couples. And very reasonably priced. The location was perfect for our touring and loved walking the beach at low tide. Spa and restaurants within 5 min walk. Recommendations from Jessica were well received and greatly appreciated. Ample parking for 3 vehicles. Would consider renting again when we come back. And we are definitely coming back!

Great Holiday Property

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a "home away from home" for the Canadian Thanksgiving Holiday, that could comfortably host a family of six adults, and Sandhaven was definitely what we were looking for! I had reservations about booking a townhouse, but it was so spacious and luxuriously comfortable, you would never know it. Thank you Jess for your hospitality and for following up on check in day to see how everything went. We certainly utilized everything in the gourmet style kitchen, and cooked an amazing Thanksgiving Feast! Your recommendations to check out the local restaurants was very helpful too. Our guests from the mainland and from Alberta were completely wowed by the place (especially the easy access to the beach), and would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful weekend at Sandhaven Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Sandhaven Retreat was the perfect place for our weekend. Jess was very friendly and accommodating. Sandhaven was very clean, and beautifully finished. It was in a quiet neighborhood set in the woods and a very short walk to the beach, and easy access to exploring Parksville. I would definitely go back and highly recommend it. Thank you Jess!

This rental was top notch!! Stayed with my wife, and two young children. The condo was amazing with everything you could think of and need. Not to mention the setting and layout were perfect. It's so close to the beach making it a simple trip any time of day and coming back to the awesome deck to bbq your supper was just what we wanted. Walking distance to a store and many trails and other activities in the area. We definitely recommend this rental and will be staying again in the future.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday! The house was perfectly situated a couple of minutes walk to Rathtrevor beach where we were able to have campfires at night in the fire pits provided. The house was clean and had all the amenities you need to make your stay that much more easier. They even have a travel cot provided although we had brought our own. Jessica the owner was prompt with all communication and provided great information on local places to visit. This property is well worth the visit. Thanks

Family friendly, will definitely be back

  • 5 of 5

My family - husband, 6Y and 3Y old including my mother and father stayed in the house for 8 days in August. The accommodations were very clean. It was a bonus that all beds had bathrooms. The area is much quieter than other resorts which was nice. Perfectly situated for beach and rathtrevor park access. Found it great for short runs 7km to top bridge and also good length within the park. The beach was beautiful. Bring a kite to fly at low tide or just go beach combing. Tips on food include visiting the urban market for prepared salads and French creek marina for fresh fish - did I mention the kitchen was well appointed with cookware, etc. We did days trips to Gabriola island, salt spring island, And cathedral grove. We will look to come back next summer. In all a perfect family vacation.
