Such an amazing place!
This was the first time we used VRBO. If all the places are like this no one should hesitate. I would rate this place a 12 out of 10......more than we expected and the pictures do not do it justice. We seen sea lions.....seals and sea otters and bald eagles right from the waterside sitting there and sipping our wine.
The house was beautiful and well set up. Clean or I should say spotless. The hosts were very helpful and being there over the Easter vacation even left us some treats. We will definitely be back and to this very space.
Thank you Coral and John
This rental has it all!
This rental property has it all: lovely well stocked suite with an amazing view of the ocean and mountain vistas of the mainland, excellent hosts, convenient to grocery store, pharmacy and liquor store, all this and just minutes away from beautiful Qualicum Beach.
During our month stay we, we had the good fortune to observe the Herring spawn, a truly amazing natural wonder. Watching the eagles, sea lions and orca whales from our suite made this a one of kind vacation stay.
Delightful Island Accomodations
My wife and I stayed in the suite for 5 nights and we were completely delighted. The view is spectacular over the Salish sea with the coastal mountains in the background. The eagles were our constant companions so we were always watching them. Coral and John were perfect hosts there when you needed them and invisible when you didn't. The unit was spotless and had everything you needed. It has a great location for exploring the Island. We would have love to spend time out on the deck but the weather was not too accommodating for sitting. A walk on the beach was an adventure. We would definitely stay again in the future.
We rented the unit for 10 days, January 23 to February 2, 2018. The unit is very clean and extremely well equipped. Coral was very accommodating and helpful. Fantastic views. Loved the eagles. Well located which made it easy to get to shopping, fish market and other highlites. We will certainly rent the unit on future stays if it is available. Definitely a five out of five.
Spectacular Views and Spotless Accommodation!
My wife and I recently returned from our first trip to Vancouver Island. We particularly enjoyed our stay at John and Coral's home in Parksville. The self contained suite was brand new and spotless and had all the amenities including a barbeque for your own private use. In the morning we would sit on the deck with our coffee looking out over the Strait of Georgia and keeping an eye on two bald eagles sitting above in the tree. In the evening we'd return for a glass of wine watching the cruise ships go by in the distance. John and Coral were excellent hosts and provided lots of suggestions for restaurants and activities in the local area. Be sure to check out Salt PIZZERIA which makes terrific pizza. This is the perfect property for a couple looking for a relaxing vacation. We will be back!
Our holiday could not have been any better. Such a beautiful and relaxing place to stay. Coral and John really know how to make you feel welcome. We can't wait to return.
