We loved this condo and would go back!

  • 4 of 5

We we're really happy overall with our stay. The condo is beautiful and well kept and was just the right size for our family. We had one major disappointment, the pool closing for the season on our first day there, but it was dealt with well and we appreciated the thoughtfulness of Judy in giving us a discount as a result. We would definitely recommend it and would just double check on the pool dates if we returned!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind response regarding your stay in our condo. I felt very badly on the pool closing as I thought it was open until the end of Sept. However, I hope my alternative suggestions worked for your family! Come again soon.

property was located in a good location-near water,prov.park, quite central to many attractions. The unit was clean, quite well stocked with basic necessities. Judy responded very quickly when a couple of slight problems arose at first..

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed that the condo did not have an ocean view. The description in my listing describes the suite as having a courtyard view within a beachfront resort.

Great layout and location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for one week at the end of August and really liked the condo and the resort. The kids loved the outdoor pool, hot tub and the grassy area right outside the patio doors - we played frisbee, threw the football around and played bocce ball. The condo layout and size was perfect for our family of 5, there was even plenty of room to host dinner one night for a few friends of ours! The condo was clean and well maintained and the kitchen was well equipped.

The location was very convenient. Having brought our bikes with us, every morning my husband and I cycled into town to Starbucks and went on daily runs through Rathtrevor Provincial Park making our way back to the condo across the sandy beach if the tide was out.

Definitely will consider heading back again!

Excellent safe place to stay! Has everything one needs. Ground level. Lots of room. Nice to have other people/neighbours around. Close to beautiful Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. I highly recommend this condo, and especially the owners.

We come back every year!

  • 5 of 5

I started bringing my family to Parksville 8 years ago for summer holidays. 4 years ago we found this property and have come back almost every year since! We found the 2 bedroom suite perfect for us and our 2 children each with their own single beds. It is ground floor with a view of the inner grass court and pool. It is also only a 100 yard walk down to the shore and the best beach sand we have ever built castles in. Our best memory is when the tides come in late in the afternoon of a hot day and we swim in the warm waters until it is totally dark. We have stayed in this unit 3 times and recommend it to others and will be back. They are family-oriented and even stocked the suite with a few sand toys, games and movies just for our kids! Only a 30 minute drive to Cathedral Grove, 15 minutes to Coombs/Nanaimo/Qualicum Beach.

Relaxing summer break!

  • 5 of 5

A great resort with easy access to the beach! The condo was well equipped , clean and the owners were lovely to deal with! We hated to leave!

The ground floor unit was easy for going back and forth to the pool, which was literally right out front. The resort was well maintained and an excellent spot for families. A great expanse of grass was right out the patio door, for little ones to run about!

We did trips to Coombes, Englishman River, Sand Castles in Parksville and Mini golf! All were close. We were able to venture out in the morning and be back in time to hit the pool and/or beach in the afternoon!

We sure hope we can return and spend more time in this condo!!

Thank you Judy and Larry!

About Judy Gaudreau

My husband and myself rediscovered the secret of the Oceanside area in 2002. It is a wonderful year round recreational area and perfect for the entire family.

Judy Gaudreau purchased this condo in 2002

Why Judy Gaudreau chose Parksville

We wished to have a vacation spot that the entire family and grandchildren could enjoy. There is so much natural beauty on Vancouver Island and especially in this area. The beach is the warmest on the island and the safest for small children.

What makes this condo unique

The wonderful ocean and mountain views of the beach and the natural sea life and birds of the area. The area exudes a peacefulness and is a wonderful change from the hustle and bustle of the city.
