A nice house, but there are some things we'd wished we'd known...

4 of 5
Overall, we really liked the house. It’s cute, clean, cheerful, well laid out, and has all the amenities you’ll need, including beach towels and toys for the kids. The beds are also comfortable, and there was a little welcome basket with cereal, bread and bananas...milk in the fridge...waiting for us in the kitchen when we arrived, which was a nice touch. The kids liked the swing set in the backyard, and we enjoyed sitting out on the front deck. While it’s just off a “highway,” we didn’t experience any issues with noise at all. Here’s what I wish I’d known before we came: 1. It can get HOT in Parksville. I checked the weather before we came, and it looked like the days would be warm but the nights would be quite cool. The forecast couldn’t have been more off. It was sweltering. Apparently, heat waves like this one happen once per summer, usually for just a couple of weeks. At least that's what some locals told us. The house isn’t really equipped to handle heat. The windows in the kitchen area push out from the bottom…but not very far out…so it’s hard for air to get in. In the front bedroom, which we were using as the master bedroom, there are no windows—just french doors. And no screens. We tried to cool down the room with the doors open and fan on, but as soon as we closed the doors to go to sleep, it got beastly hot again. Made for a pretty rough couple of nights and not much sleep. 2. The Parksville Community Beach is walking distance…but it’s about a 20 min walk to the playground / beach It was only a problem for us because we came to Parksville with two kids and a nanny, and expected to leave them alone in Parksville for a full day without a car while we went to Tofino for the day. It was a tough day for them, because it was so hot, and walking from the house to the park, and the water (which during low tide adds another shocking 1/4 mile maybe to the walk), and back wasn’t easy with a three year old. 3. Parksville doesn’t really have much of a downtown Some of the marketing for Parksville online is misleading. So again, a bit of an issue if you leave your nanny and two kids alone for the day without a car, there aren't too many places to explore / eat out. 4. Note that there is a pretty substantial cleaning fee in the contract for all stays in this house. Had we known items 1-3, our stay would have been better as we could have planned for it. So hopefully this review will help, and if prepared, I do recommend staying in this house
