Oceanside Retreat In Close Proximity To Breathtaking Beaches
average rating of 4.5 based on 26 reviews

The cottage was neat and clean, attractive and user friendly.

  • 4 of 5

The place was attractive and fairly comfortable. Unfortunately the furniture which was in the pictures had changed, and I have rheumatoid arthritis and I had noticed a tall wing back chair which I had looked forward to using as I felt it would be the right height and comfortable.

The second bedroom did not have a bedside table or reading lamp, and I use a cpap machine which requires a bedside table to put it on, so I had to improvise.

The TV was a disappointment as we could only access a few channels and they were not in HD, which made watching TV very uncomfortable. We enjoy CBC Newsworld and CNN in the evening as well as the sports channels. I would suggest taking the larger TV from upstairs and putting it in the living room area as that TV is small.

The surrounding cottages and landscaping were really nicely cared for, and the complex was quiet and peaceful in the evening. We spent most of our time at the beach, so we did not use the pool that was a part of the complex, but it looked very nice.

Below Average Accommodations

  • 2 of 5

We've rented a number of properties through VRBO and unfortunately, this property did not meet our expectations. The sliding glass door in the master bedroom does not lock, the dishwasher leaks,we were unable to personalize the lock code for the front door and the sofa and master bedroom mattress are uncomfortable. There is no grass on the property for the dog to use so if you are bringing a dog you will have to walk outside the complex so that your dog can relieve himself. If you have younger kids,the cable package is very basic and does not include any kid's channels (YTV, Treehouse, Disney Jr., etc). Also, the photos on the ad are outdated. Most of the furniture that is pictured in the VRBO ad is no longer in the property. There is one table on the deck, not two, and there are no umbrellas for shade or a fountain as advertised. It is very difficult to access the area behind the deck as it is no longer as shown in the pictures. It is now overgrown and unkempt.

The "well appointed" kitchen did not provide any basics at all upon arrival. There was no salt or pepper in the shakers, no dishwasher detergent for us to use and one very small roll of paper towel. There were also no dryer sheets for the dryer so I had to purchase all of those things myself. There were place settings for only 8 people in the kitchen which meant that for my family of 4, we had to do dishes twice per day to have clean dishes for meals. There was no welcome binder with instructions about where to find things, a map of the complex, check out instructions, etc.

The complex itself is lovely. The pool area is fantastic, the proximity to Rathtrevor Beach is great and the area is quiet and beautiful. Parksville is a friendly community close to outstanding hiking, biking, dining, shopping and beach-combing. The market at Coombs is great (check out Billy Gruff's Creamery for ice cream and Cuckoo's Trattoria for great Italian food)! Ammrikko's is just down the 19A and had excellent Indian Cuisine, the sushi at Sushi Ichi was fresh and delicious and the sand sculptures at Community Beach were amazing. There are many properties available for rent both in this complex and in the surrounding area. We will definitely return to Parksville but we will not rent this particular unit again.

Wonderful cottage & complex

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was everything that it was described as, clean and pretty spacious. The complex was wonderful as well, with the pool and hot tub area. Great for families. The location of the cottage is excellent; close to beaches, main road, restaurants.

Dan was great to communicate with, quick to respond to messages. A couple requests we had he accommodated right away, which we were appreciative of.

Would recommend this cottage to anyone, and hopefully we can come again one day.

Great place. Beautiful setting. Perfect for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend. The beach was great and easy to get to. The house had what we needed. I brought our younger sons bike and he had fun riding within the resort. We also appreciated the pool.

Cosy private cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for nearly two weeks and found this cottage to be nicely private even though it is located in a resort complex. The unit was clean and ready to go on our arrival. The resort is a short hike to Rathtrevor beach, where we spent most of our time, and only a few minutes drive to shopping. We would recommend this property to couples or a family who are searching for a great vacation.
