This great listing is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! On the ocean in Parksville, this house is ready to provide you with a week or longer of beach, sand and relaxation. We have just updated the kitchen/living area. By opening up the wall between the kitchen and dining room, the main living area is brighter and friendlier. No longer is the cook alone in the kitchen! Everyone can be part of the action. New lighting has helped modernize the space. The calm colour of the living area helps keep the relaxing beach vibe going. The rooms are well decorated and comfortable. One large King bedroom with an en-suite provides lovely vistas of islands, ocean and beach. The Queen room also shares in the view. There is a twin room and a new fourth bedroom that has a queen bed and a single bed. The kitchen has lots of counter space and storage. There is an open kitchen/living/ dining area that has windows to allow maximum views. The patio overlooks the ocean and has a new BBQ and dining area. The home is located near a public beach access that provides an easy path to the beach. This is one of the few waterfront homes in Parksville that is not only waterfront, but is close to all the amenities of Parksville. You can walk to many restaurants, shops, spas, recreation areas, and festivals.

For us perfect in every way
Beautiful home with an incomparable view of the beach that at low tide can be walked on for hours. Beach with tide pools and wonderful sand ...that becomes a beach community when that tide is out.
The house with 4 bedrooms and three bathrooms and a very complete open kitchen dining and living room all on one floor is well stocked with necessities flatware plates blender etc etc.
We loved every minute of our stay at this home .
Great Location but needs some TLC
There is a no in between "I loved it and not really" which is what I would choose. We had a lovely stay, nice large rooms and great location! Nice to be altogether and share a house. However, there are some simple updates that would have taken our stay from good to great! There are no screens on most windows making the house extraordinarily hot especially during peak summer days. Simply opening windows would rectify that, but without screens all the bugs would come in. The linens/towels smelled musty and should be replaced. Hooks on backs of doors to hang wet towels etc. would be appreciated. The kitchen is fully stocked and the furniture is nice. Too bad the laminate was not carried throughout the house, I can only imagine how filthy it must be with such a high turnover, high traffic areas, and people coming and going from the beach! The sliding doors were painful to open/close. Great communication from owners! Make some updates and you will have a slam-dunk!
Thank you for your review. As your review deviated substantially from all our other reviews I would like address your concerns and clarify a few. Firstly, this past summer was very hot, perhaps one of the hottest on record. Being an oceanfront property in a moderate climate, we do not have air conditioning but rely on cool ocean breezes. One of the benefits of our location is that there are very few bugs, so leaving doors and windows open without screens has never been an issue. That being said, all the bedrooms have screens as do all the sliding doors and windows with the exception of a few swing open windows and the front and back doors. After hearing your concerns, we purchased fans for the house. We have never found the linens to be musty, nor have we heard of it being an issue. However, every towel and linen is washed and dried between each visit in a new washer dryer. As for the carpet (which is the norm in most north american hotels), it is periodically shampooed and is thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed before each guest arrives. Our professional cleaning team (with 2 to 3 members) spends 4 to 5 hours cleaning the house between each guest with professional equipment. They take great pride in their work and our property. We did have the sliding door tracks re cleaned and lubricated after your visit. They have never been a problem before but perhaps the hot weather and salt air and humidity effected them. As for hooks on the back of doors, that is a great idea and we will add them in, we will also add an outdoor cloths line for towels as they get the most use when it is hot and sunny.
Perfect place for a family gathering!
Our extended family of 11 really enjoyed our time here. (Be aware that the price quoted on the home page is for 4 people and there is a per night-per person extra charge for more than that.)
The house is very clean and comfortable with room enough for all. There were ample supplies and plenty of dishes, glasses etc for us. The kitchen floor is new hardwood and there is a new, large washer and dryer.
The path to the beach is just a few steps past the end of the driveway but then there are quite a few steps down to the sand. The beach is perfect for kids with lots of tide pools and clean, pure sand.
Just a short walk down the boardwalk is a great playground and next door there is a mini-golf course and bumper boats. A large grocery store is just a few minutes drive away.
On the patio, there are lots of comfortable chairs and a table that we were able to eat at every night.
It's the perfect place for a family reunion at the beach!
Spacious, clean, close to the beach!
All the rooms were so big! Location was close to downtown and other towns close by. It's also a5 minute walk down to the beach. The cabinets in the kitchen were all labeled making it so easy to find what we were looking for. We would definitely stay here again.
Relaxation at its best
The location of this place was good for us. I felt completely relaxed having coffee on the deck watching the tide and passing cruise ships. The Community Park is withing walking distance that had a very nice kids playground and waterpark. Minigolf was right next door ! The appliances were quite new, the house looks dated, but that wasn't a concern for me. Beach access was very close by and made it handy. Paddle board rentals are only a block away.
The house was perfectly situated as well as fitted out for our family. We had a restful weekend.
