Parksville Condo Rental Photos and Description

Tanglewood Condo with the BEST VIEW, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Wonderful beachfront condo adjacent to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville, on the east coast of Vancouver Island, on Georgia Strait (recently renamed the Salish Sea). You will witness the ever-changing natural beauty and wildlife of the West Coast , including migrating blackbrants, eagles and hawks nesting in the surrounding forest, water birds such as herons and egrets, seals surfacing at high tide and early morning/late evening sightings of deer, rabbits and quail.

Sunrise will greet you with warmth and light flooding through large panoramic windows, into the living room, dining room and kitchen. You can be the first to make your tracks across the pristine, rippled sand after the waves have erased yesterday’s creations. Witness the awesome sight of a full moon painting a swath of light on the water and watch it slowly sink into the sea from your window, or even better, go outside and see the brilliance of the star studded night sky, undiminished by the glow of city lights.

Our unit is a haven nestled in a spectacular setting, on the second floor of a beachfront fourplex. Even while relaxing inside, you can enjoy the majesty of nature and life around you. Being outside is exhilarating and a wonderful antidote to the busyness and stress of life. Prepare to unwind, relax and simplify your life.

Why The Owner chose Vancouver Island

Our retreat is centrally located on the east coast of Vancouver Island and easily accessible to other areas and attractions. It is a two hour drive south to Victoria, with attractions such as Butchart Gardens, the Empress Hotel, Royal B.C. Museum and whale watching tours. Similarly, it is a two hour drive north to the Courtney/Comox Valley and Mt. Washington ski resort.

Day trips to the fishing meccas of Port Alberni and Campbell River are another option. Long Beach/Tofino/Wickaninnish surfing and storm watching are other possibilities, as are trips to outlying islands such as Hornby and Denman.

Friends visiting from the mainland (i.e. Vancouver) can take the Vancouver/Horseshoe Bay ferry to Nanaimo and drive north 25 minutes to Tanglewood. Airplane connections are typically made through Victoria, Nanaimo or Comox/Courtney airports.

What makes this condo unique

The location of our condo adjacent to Rathtrevor Provincial Park affords us access to a beautifully forested area with well-maintained trails, a nature house with summer parks programs for the kids, popular camp sites and tubing on the rapids of the Englishman River and estuary.

There are many areas close by where one can go digging for clams and oysters or fishing. We love the quaint markets and local arts and cultural events organized by Parksville/Qualicum, such as the Coombs Market, Parksville Sand Castle Festival, downtown night market and Classic Car Festival.

The absolute best!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the condo! Fabulous view, very clean, extremely well equipped - kitchen, beach chairs, bathrooms, cleaning products, crayons for kids, etc.

Everything is in good condition. The place is very quiet but close to shopping, and you can walk to the mini-golf.

Close to Coombs and Cathedral Grove. Perfect for a romantic getaway, and also for a families with children.

You cannot make a better choice. Highly recommended

best place on vancouver island

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four other women having been holidaying at this condo for the past 20 years. Why the same place? Because it's perfect! The view and the beach are probably the best on Vancouver Island. One immediately relaxes once you enter the condo and look at that gorgeous view. The location is perfect for walking, either out to sea when the tide is low or in each direction along the beach, through the park or to one of the very good restaurants in the neighbourhood nearby. Not that I couldn't be more relaxed when I am there but there is a Spa if needed nearby. The condo is equipped with everything you could need. I think the kitchen is almost better equipped than my own at home. The owners have kept the condo in perfect condition which amazes me as we having been coming there for a very long time/

It is truly beachfront!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Rathtrevor Beach for 11 years, having stayed in various places, but this is the best! We liked the 180 degree view of the ocean from the sunrise to the sun on the islands at sunset. We even enjoy the cloudy rainy days. The view is always changing ... birds, boats, seals, sea lions & even an odd whale. We like the fact it is just steps to the sand beach & the park with all it's trails.

The condo is bright, comfortable, spacious and well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for cooking/baking. I also love having a washer/dryer. The second bedroom offers lots of options for guests or family. Both Donna & Helen were very accommodating & quick to attend to any problems with the unit.

This spot is very quiet but also only minutes from downtown and many attractions.

We will definitely be returning next winter.

A fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting this condo from Donna over New Years and enjoyed our stay in this spacious townhouse.

The space was very bright, clean, very well kept and had all the amenities of home.

We were also quite pleased with the view as it is situated right on the beachfront, and literally right next door to Rathtrevor Park!

We were there renting 3 condos in the complex for our group of 15 and everyone agreed that this unit was the best due to its proximity to the beach.

I would highly recommend renting this condo if you are ever in the area through out the year!

Nothing but beachfront - Bring your camera!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing week at this condo. Even gray days are lovely when you have an unobstructed view of sea and distant mountains. Although we explored the beach every day, there was a new discovery each time, and was that a whale causing the splashing in the distance? Seal watching from the living room became a spectator sport, as at high tide they approach the shore in search of meals.

The condo has all the items and facilities of home, without having to pack them. Everything from cookie sheets to the washing machine. We enjoyed the brightness of the main floor, the spaciousness of the bedrooms, and of course that wonderful upper deck - great for enjoying sunshine, meals, and quiet retreat time. The unit is kept clean and in good repair. The hosts are marvelous and are to be congratulated for their management of this rental suite. Thank you!

Sandy beach stretches out for miles at low tide. Ideal for beachcombing, and water activities of all kinds. Playground and picnic tables, hiking/walking/biking trails and nature walks at Rathtrevor Provincial Park, steps away.
