PET FRIENDLY COTTAGE CLOSE TO POOL AND RATHTREVOR BEACH - QUIET LOCATION

Parksville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Morning-Glory Guest House!

Close to Rathtrevor Beach Park this delightful two bedroom cottage has all that you need for short or long stays - in our wonderful summers or mild winters. Relax by the warm fireplace, explore the Oceanside area and play on the sunny beaches, this vacation rental provides comfort, convenience and accessibility to all the area has to offer.

Morning-Glory is a designer decorated Arbutus cottage in the Oceanside Village Resort. This cottage has all the amenities and upon opening the door, this feels like home. The welcoming bottle of wine along with the cuddly terry robes are there for you to begin relaxing the moment you arrive.

Designed with the outdoors in mind, the cottage has two bedrooms. The windows let in the glorious sunshine and the comfortable design of the cottage encourages rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

The kitchen has a sensible and pleasing design. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities - including patio glassware, dishes, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker, blender, mixer and placemats. In keeping with the nature theme on the floor and backsplash, the beauty of the wood stained shaker cabinetry compliments the warm golden and russet tones of the rest of the cottage.

The dining room table comfortably seats six. Imagine playing board games at the dining table or planning the next day's excursion in this beautiful part of the world.

The living room has a sofa bed, TV with DVD player, VCR and a stereo. It opens onto the sunny deck which has patio furniture and a barbecue for those who enjoy outdoor meals. The vaulted pine ceiling in the living and dining room gives a wonderful light and airy feel to this cottage. The ceiling fan and gas fireplace are there to ensure you are comfortable whatever the weather. Watch the TV (cable included) or videos/DVD's or curl up with a book. A supply of games, puzzles and dvds provide hours of entertainment.

The master bedroom has it's own TV and DVD player. The bed is a very comfortable queen size. The second bedroom has a double bed. Warm terry robes are supplied for the adults and each bed has a down duvet. A tub and a separate shower adorn the bathroom and all towels are supplied.

GREAT STAY AT MORNING GLORY GUEST HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
It was a very cute cabin perfect for our small family! It was a great spot, and so great that we could bring our dog. The kitchen had everything we needed, as we stayed for 7 nights and did lots of cooking. The pool was great and the beach was about 15 min walk away but we brought our bikes and could get there really fast. The only problem was the mattress in the master bedroom was really uncomfortable so I had a lot of back aches every morning, also the duvet cover did not appear to washed as it had blood stains on it when we arrived. Overall, the rest of the cabin was clean and it was so nice to have the week to enjoy it :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review – we appreciate it. This is the first time anyone has complained about the mattress – I also suffer back-pain at times so we chose a mattress which had lots of support and of a better quality. We have had several reviews from people who said they loved the comfy beds and we are fortunate to have many guests who love to return to the Guest House year after year. However, mattress choice is very personal and that is why there are so many different models. I hope that your back has improved.

Our cleaner has been with us for 3 years and we appreciate all the extra work that she does – she goes out of her way to make sure that everything is clean and working properly for our guests. However everyone makes mistakes and if you encountered a problem with the duvet, I wish you would have called us immediately so we could have rectified it for you. The duvets are stored in the closet because not everyone appreciates the extra warmth they provide. Protocol is that these duvets be unrolled after each stay to check that they have not been used or stained. Although we have asked guests to leave soiled linens out when they leave, not everyone admits to having had an accident such as a nose bleed or a child coloring with felt pens which caused a problem. Many times they have carefully rolled up the duvets and it appeared they were not used. It would be easy to miss if pushed for time. We have extra duvet covers in the cottage and could have changed it out for you if you had called us as per the instruction sheet on the table.

We appreciate your comments and will review the procedures with our cleaner to make sure that this doesn’t happen again. I have also included the review you had left in our guest book in fairness to all who read this review.

“Walked to Rathtrevor Beach and had a fire and played in the park. Pool was great. Very clean cabin with everything we needed. Thanks for the dog treats and bottle of wine. Can’t wait to come back next year.”

GREAT MONTH STAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and rented this cottage for a month (mid Dec - mid Jan). When we arrived the cottage was spotless and so very well equipmented that you only need to bring your clothes. We had no problem with anything but if we did we were sure the owners would have addressed it right away. We enjoyed the indoor pool in the complex and the location near Rathtrevor Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon!

CHRISTMAS VACATION - 1ST VRBO EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Location - Great ... walking distance (with dogs) to Rathtrevor Beach , quick in & out for highway access, not "busy" in and around unit.

Cottage description was totally accurate - completely stocked kitchen - down to spice rack ! Set-up was great - bedrooms, living & dining areas and bathroom all clean, comfortable and well-stocked (linens, etc). Amazing to have washer & dryer on site

Pleasantly surprised at reasonable rate over "busy" Christmas period - having worked in hotels, usually rates spike over Christmas & New Years.
Communication before, during and after was good - expectations were clearly laid out.

Was above & beyond our expectation ..little details that were unexpected: Christmas Tree, welcome package and treats for both us and our dog !, selection of movies, games and for summer guests beach chairs/toys and towels.

We took a couple cards and have recommended this as an option for friends who may be looking for rental options on Vancouver Island.

Sadly with family and visiting we "underutilized" a lot of the options ... even to watch a couple movies, rad a book or use the pool !

Woudl definitely recommend this cottage for a "quiet" getaway of any type ! We'll have to try it again.

Thank you for this amazing week for my family. We arrived home yesterday and I already wish I was back at your cabin!
You thought of everything. So many extra touches. We will be back soon!
The wine, the beach toys, the beach towels, and more. Thank you!
