About Shelley Hird

Born and raised on the island we had been coming to the Parksville area for years. We purchased the Tanglewood unit when it was built in 2007 as a family getaway for ourselves and the next generation of family. We love coming here both in winter and in the summer. Our children love the easy access to the beach and we spend hours enjoying the outdoor activities that Parksville has to offer. The perfect peaceful getaway.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our experiences with both Shelley and her vacation rental were terrific! As an owner, Shelley was very easy to communicate with, quick to respond, and helpful. The rental unit was the perfect size for our family: two adults, and two young boys. (Although, there would be room for more - play pen in the closet, pull out couch in the living room, etc.) Big bathrooms and a soaker tub (the best part, according to my 5 year old) made it easy to run the regular bedtime routine for my kids. I was impressed with how child friendly the unit was, while still being beautifully decorated and kept. The photos on VRBO impressed us, but when we arrived we were shocked to see that it was even more attractive than we imagined! The view was gorgeous. The open concept, high ceilings, and tall windows made it feel breezy and big. All 'needs' were met - WIFI worked, TV, Music, etc. Even kids' beach toys and beach chairs were ready to go. The central location of this rental made it quick to run to the store (30 minutes, round trip, including your quick shop), and still feel like you were 'away from it all.' There was a HUGE BBQ on the deck, with lots of space to entertain some friends. It was a very quick walk down to the beautiful beach, where we used the Tanglewood fire pits on the last night (there were three available). *Keep in mind that fire restrictions may prevent the use of these pits.

We cannot recommend this rental highly enough to anyone looking for a vacation in one of the prettiest spots here on Vancouver Island. (In fact, it would be a good alternative to the rentals on Mt. Washington for some winter accommodation, if it's available, for anyone who wants to ski but is not keen to stay up at the mountain! Might be worth the 1hr trip up and down before and after the ski day up there.)

Thanks, Shelley, for providing us with a great experience! We will absolutely be back again!!

The Labelle Family.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location with close proximity to the beach and Rathtrevor Park. Beach is good for walking as it is shallow and the tide goes out a long way at low tide. Serious Coffee and General Store are within walking distance. The Black Goose pub is a two minute walk and they have a unique building very much like an old British pub. Condo was clean and very well equipped. The front deck is large and provides a view of the ocean as the condo is on the third (top) floor. Riptide Lagoon miniature golf is close by if you have children. Top Bridge park is across the highway and is a good location for mountain biking. There are lots of things to see in the area, such as Coombs Market, Englishman River Falls, and Cathedral Forest. We would definitely stay there again.

Comfortable Condo in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a great holiday in this very comfortable condo. It was clean and exactly as depicted - very nice to have two large bathrooms - an en suite with a shower and large tub and one for the kids with a shower. The kitchen was well appointed and the entertainment area was cozy with good electronics. We loved all the board games as well.

Best of all was the morning sun on the deck overlooking the beach. Even the king bed in the master was drenched in morning sunlight and looked out on that beautiful view.

We spent a lot of time on the beach - which is a quick 2 minute walk down the hill - and we hit a couple of great restaurants within a 5 minute walk as well.

Downtown Parksville is a 5 minute drive so getting groceries didn't take us away from the amazing scenery for too long.

Shelley was great to deal with and she responded quickly to all inquiries.

All in all we had a great stay.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using vrbo and this condo was perfect for our needs. It was in a terrific location, just a five minute walk from the beach. The unit was clean, quiet, well equipped and as described. The pictures on the website are accurate but don't do it justice. We were pleasantly surprised as it looks even nicer in person. We loved the huge deck with BBQ and view of the ocean. Good times were had on the island hiking, beach combing, kayaking, paddle boarding, spelunking, sun bathing and shopping. We had a fabulous time and are hoping to get back again soon.

Beautiful Home - Had a Great Time on the Island!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as described. Lots of room for a family of 4. Beds were comfortable. BBQ was a nice bonus - fresh seafood was grilled almost every night. Beach was a short 5 minute walk away. Beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony. Beach toys were great for the kids. Everything in Parksville was a close drive. Would highly recommend this property. My family and I had a great vacation and highly recommend a visit to the island - it is truly a beautiful part of this country.

Fantastic Stay - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Rathtrevor Beach is one of our favorite vacation spots and this townhouse is the perfect spot to enjoy the best of Parksville. The condo is well maintained and very clean. It has everything we could think of needing right down to the beach towels, portable lawn chairs and kids beach shovels and buckets. The view from the deck is spectacular and we enjoyed many evenings overlooking the beautiful beach and making use of the huge gas bbq. We have returned several times to this specific condo and we have already booked again for next year! I highly recommend this hidden gem!
