About the property

Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our beautiful Oceanside beach-level Townhouse is located in Parksville, British Columbia.

Parksville is on the east side of Vancouver Island, 150 km north of Victoria.

Our townhouse is in the Tanglewood complex on the southern edge of Parksville between Rathtrevor Provincial Park and Beach Acres Resort.

We are located at beach level -- it is a short 30 second walk (about 50 paces) from our unit to the beach, no long walks through the woods to get to the ocean, which is visible on every level of the unit.

We offer huge sandy beaches, warm water, and a quiet atmosphere in a privately owned complex. Enjoy, relax, and rejuvenate yourself in your 'home away from home'. Have a great time swimming in the ocean, walking the beach, or hiking the trails in the Provincial park next door.

For those who like to golf, we are within a 20 minute drive of ten or more courses that will provide a challenge to any level of player. If mini-golf is more for you and the kids, we are under a 5 minute walk away.

Our townhouse is fully equipped.

On the top floor are two bedrooms and a four piece bathroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed, a private deck and cable TV. The second bedroom has a two double futon bunks with singles on top.

The main floor has the living room with fireplace and cable TV, dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, a four piece bathroom, gas barbeque and two decks.

On the entry level is the third bedroom with a double bed. It also has a 1/2 bath. This level also has a single car garage with a full size laundry washer and dryer.

When you are ready for your day on the beach we provide beach toys for sand castle building for the kids. We also have our red beach wagon to help you get these to and from the beach.

In the evening wander down to the beach and have a bonfire in one of the fire pits in front of the Tanglewood complex.

This is the perfect location to enjoy the wonderful West Coast. Come and explore the beach and the surrounding area. You will find something for everyone in your party.

Sorry No pets and No smoking in the townhouse.

Why Archie Christopher chose Parksville

We came for a holiday and stayed in this condo complex, we found it would be a great place to watch our kids grow up, and for the last 7 years they have loved every minute we can spare to come here. Someday we'll retire here and hopefully all those memories the kids will have will bring them home to us in this magical place.

Nice townhouse in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Everything was exactly as described and communication with Archie was effortless. Steps from the beach and right next to Rathtrevor Provincial park. The townhouse is well-equipped and was a perfect place to bring the family (our 6 and 1 year old loved it). We look forward to coming again.

Fabulous location, great condo and perfect host

  • 5 of 5

Tanglewood is a great complex right beside Rathtrevor Provincial Park with a glorious beach just steps from the condo and lots to do within half an hour of the property. The condo is really well cared for and appointed, the layout works really well for two families and is comfortable and relaxing to hang out in. Archie is so easy to deal with and very responsive to any questions you may have. We'll be back for sure!

Very nice property, good location, exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The house is very comfortable and well equipped, basically exactly as described. It's in a quiet cul de sac, one minutes walk to the beach and Provincial park, and a 5 minute walk to a nice pub which does good food. Parksville is a good location from which to visit other parts of the island. Recommended.

What a location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing close to the beach, well stocked, nice furniture. Everything was great, we have stayed at a variety of places however this was probably the best equipped of all the places we stayed. My wife's comment summed it up "I like vacationing in houses nicer than ours" We would definitely recommend it.

Perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5, (2 adults plus three kids-5,3&3 years old). This home has everything you need for a getaway! Kitchen is well equipped and the unit is very clean throughout. With three young kids, the proximity to the beach is a bonus; not to mention the little wagon Archie has with all the beach toys for us to use! The kids had so much fun during our stay! It was our first time to Parksville and we were a little surprised to see how kids friendly this little town is. The location of the unit is central with lots of things to see and do around us! We were telling all our friends and family about the trip, for sure we will return some time!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This is my family's fourth time staying in this unit. We very much love this location and the condo. It feels like a home away from home. The owner is great to work with, and the condo has everything you need for a wonderful stay.

The location is central to so many wonderful things - some we just discovered for the first time this year! Englishman River Falls, Little Qualicum Falls, and Milner Gardens. Some of our old favorites; Cathedral Grove, Chemainus Theatre, Cuckoo Restaurant (Coombs), and Long Beach. Of course Rathtrevor beach is as wonderful as ever and keeps us coming back!

Thanks to the owner for making us feel so welcome.
