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 Vancouver Island

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.

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.

A wonderful Ocean escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at your rental townhouse. With four kids in tow, ranging in age from 3-8, we were pleasantly surprised to discover how kid friendly your unit is. The older kids loved the bunk beds! The proximity to the beach is so convenient, and your unit is tastefully decorated and well managed. We can't wait to come back! Thanks for helping to make our holiday memorable.

it was an amazing place for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (6 and 7 yrs old) , we all really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful townhouse. Everything was as presented in the ad. Kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. short distance to many attractions and facilities. Owners were wonderful to deal with, responded to every question. We enjoyed our walk on the beach, collecting sea shells, colored rocks and kiting as well. some attractions which we enjoyed were Englishman falls, Paradise fun park, spider lakes, butterfly world, and there is a super playground for the kids just couple min drive from this townhouse. Overall, it was an amazing place to spend our summer vacation.

Repeat stay was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this place in 2011 for the first time (read the review below if you want more of a description of the unit's layout). It was also the first time we had done VRBO and, after going to another location last summer, we decided to come back to Vancouver Island and this same unit again in 2013. That was a great choice!

The unit has been upgraded since our visit in 2013. There is new flooring on the main floor, new furniture in the living room and master bedroom, and better TVs. What is the same is the great location on the beach - only 30 seconds walk. It's not right on the beach - the unit is in the second row of units off the beach - but still VERY close and convenient. So - you get to easily enjoy all of the joys of high and low tide on a really fabulous beach. The tide goes out for a long way (takes us 15 minutes to walk from the shore to the edge of low tide). Bathrooms, kitchen, resting places are just off the beach when you've decided you've had enough for the day.

Parksville is also a great location on the island. We love visiting the Coombs-goats-on-the-roof-market, Cathedral Grove, the Parksville sand castle competition, and Chemainus for the murals and theatre (and fun town!). Last time we visited Tofino. You could also visit Campbell River, Victoria, or any of the Gulf Islands very conveniently from Parksville. So - prime beach location but also prime island location.

The unit is laid out well, supplied well and clean. The owner is great to work with and in general we have felt this unit is a home away from home. We'd highly recommend it to anyone and we'll likely be back again ourselves.
