About Ronalyn Cownden

Hi,

We are both born and bred on the West coast and never take the beauty of our area for granted. We have lived in Parksville for 19 years but work has taken us to Victoria. We are happy to share this magical piece of property.

Ronalyn Cownden purchased this house in 2000

Why Ronalyn Cownden chose Parksville

We lived in two other homes in this neighbourhood known as San Pareil. Each home got a little closer to the ocean. When this property came up for sale we felt it was right for us. Our daughter grew up with the beach as her backyard. Beachcombing, swimming and nature watching.

What makes this house unique

We have two eagle trees close by. Three lots up and three lots down the street. Don't be surprised to hear them talking in the mornings. A pod of killer whales is common. Just saw some March 23, 2014. Deer are everywhere, especially in the summer when the campers are taking up their space in Rathtrevor Park.

Tranquil and peaceful with stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent just under a week here and have intentions of returning. What a fantastic location. We were looking for a place to rest and re-charge....found the perfect spot. Did day trips from here and returned to this little haven for dinner and quiet evening. Could appreciate the great night sky all while chilling out in the hot tub. All amenities not far away. Great energy being near ocean and having mountains in the distance. Thanks to both of you for making our stay so wonderful!

A little piece of West Coast paradise!

Thank you for an wonderful stay in this beautiful home! The location is stunning, and so peaceful, yet close to everything. The extra touches of a beach bucket and spade etc ready to play with for my daughter was so thoughtful.

We were mesmerized by the oceanfront views and the many seals that greeted us each morning. Wonderful yard, fantastic kitchen, and comfy and cozy home that is beautifully decorated. Thank you!

Great property, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here, and absolutely loved it. The Bald Eagles kept watch over us, and we enjoyed walking along the shoreline. Close to Parksville and Rathtrevor beaches, and we really enjoyed seeing the sandcastles in town. The house has a perfect view of the ocean, along a nice, quiet street that is well situated for trips to all of the beaches and towns nearby.

This house is clean and very well taken care of. Set up perfectly for families, and we also enjoyed the hot tub a few evenings as well. A great home away from home, with everything we could have needed.

The kids especially liked that we passed by (and stopped at) the log cabin ice cream shop out at the highway often

Great spot ....very well equipped....comfortable beds...great location..close to Parksville.. Short walk to a beautiful ocean side park just down the street. Quiet location.

Hot tub on deck a popular spot to spend some time. Wonderful being able to look out through the big bright windows and see the water.

Owner very attentive to any questions or concerns.

Would like to come back sometime for sure

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views from each window were incredible. The house itself was clean, warm and inviting and had all the amenities we were looking for. There was plenty of room for the seven of us - five adults and two grand children. It was the perfect setting to celebrate two birthdays and an engagement. We would definately come again.

Perfect family vacation home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

I spent three nights here in June 2014 with my husband and kids aged 4 and 10 months. This was the perfect place for us. The house is lovely, comfortable and has stunning views of the water, islands and mountains from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. The kitchen is very well equipped and it was nice to have a barbecue. The big, fenced back yard is great for kids, and there's nothing better than sitting in the hot tub gazing at the stars. The neighbourhood is so quiet - the only evening noise was the seals barking at each other. The beach out front has rocks and grass, but Rathtrevor is only a 5 minute drive if you're looking for spectacular sand. Our only minor complaint is the pillows, which are strangely crinkly. We wound up using throw pillows, which there are lots of. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay and would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We have changed the pillow protectors which made the crinkly sound.

Our waterfront home is located in the seaside City of Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

We have a mild climate and at any time of the year, the area is perfect for long walks on the beach, or along the many trails as well as cycling through the quiet neighborhoods. The Oceanside area (which Includes Parksville) has all the amenities for a wonderful family holiday. Lots of parks, trails, spas, golf courses and beaches.

The City of Nanaimo is 20 minutes away where you’ll find lots of shopping, recreation and entertainment.

Mount Washington Ski Resort is an easy one hour drive. A two hour ferry ride takes you to Vancouver, a huge multi-cultural feast of sight seeing, shopping and special events.

From Vancouver, Whistler Village (2010 Olympics) is a short ferry ride and a scenic drive on the Sea to Sky Highway.

The world famous Butchart Gardens and our Capital City of Victoria are only 2 hours away. Winter storms are fabulous to watch at Pacific Rim National Park and Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island is approximately a two hour drive.

From the most southerly point, it is an eight hour drive to the north end of the island which includes some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Victoria has a rich cultural life. Many tourists come to watch the whales. We have seen killer and grey whales swim past our house!! Our last Orca whale sighting was March 23, 2014.

The house is in a great neighborhood! Framed by Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, the Pacific Ocean and Englishman River Estuary. Deer, herons, and eagles are a common sight.

Lots of windows, open plan, living/dining/kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a den, 2 bathrooms, fireplace in livingroom. The deck with (hot tub) runs the length of the house on the ocean side and we have a nicely landscaped yard. . Have a look at the attached photos. We don’t always get snow, but we did last winter. It never lasts more that a few days!

New appliances, Big screen TV, PVR, highspeed internet, Hot tub on deck.

Dining, Shopping, Golf, Skiing, Hiking, Art Galleries, Spas. Everything is nearby.
