About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (sleeps 3-6) Home

My lovely little home is the perfect set up for a very comfortable stay in beautiful Parksville. It is a two bedroom home. One bedroom consists of a queen bed, dresser and dressing table. The second bedroom is set up with a single trundle bed, (sleeps 2 persons) Both bedrooms are across from the full three piece bathroom. The house is very comfortable with a living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry area. There is a Bbq on the spectacular deck that overlooks fruit trees, a pond and gazebo. I even have a small view of the amazing Mount Arrowsmith.

About Danelle Osmond

Hi there!! My name is Danelle and I own this beautiful little vacation home. I am a friendly and happy host that cares about your comfort.

Danelle Osmond purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Danelle Osmond chose Vancouver Island

I bought this property 12 years ago. I have always wanted to open my own vacation rental and after being in this neighbourhood, so close to the beach and downtown Parksville I decided that this will be it! There is so much to see in the surrounding areas and coming home to 'La Deja Garden' is a great way to end a day of exploring! It's definitely family friendly and affordable!

What makes this bungalow unique

Even though my property is situated in a neighborhood close to downtown Parksville, I feel it is unique in that it has a feel of being in the country with its privacy and beauty in the back garden. I fell in love with the yard immediately, with its apple, pear and plum trees, grape vine and beautiful pond. I have a gazebo, fire pit and loads of room to set up botchy ball or badminton. The back deck is a lovely way to spend an evening of star gazing and perhaps a midnight dinner.

Fabulous !!!

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage style house with beautiful gardens , pond and multiple outdoor areas to relax in . Great location ! On a quiet street but very close to beaches , shopping and all the roads that take you to everything Vancouver Island has to offer . The house is spacious , charming and very clean. The fully equipped kitchen came complete with all conveniences you would find in your own home . Bicycles , helmets , barbecue and washer / dryer are all included too . Owner was very accommodating and we will definitely be back ! We highly recommend this VRBO !

Beautiful home and a very warm host.

  • 5 of 5

Danelle made my family instantly feel at home. The space is cozy and inviting with plenty of room for everyone. Her large backyard was a pleasure to have dinners in and there was plenty of space for our toddler to play. The kitchen provided ample room for us to cook and was stocked with everything we needed. We couldn't have made a better choice.

Perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Danelle's house is amazing -- cozy, clean and well decorated -- we felt at home instantly.

We wanted a place that would be comfortable and have a kitchen, traveling with my pregnant wife and almost 2-year-old. This house was cheaper than any hotel/motel and way better. We had lots of room to relax and cook meals. We ate almost every meal outside in the backyard (it's huge!) and there's a great (solid/clean/fancy) table in the gazeebo tent thing. Awesome! We hope to come back one day with our two children and spend much longer here. It would be hard to stay anywhere else.

Only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Thanks Danelle!

Exceptional hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful in many aspects; an immaculate yard, and a brand new(and spotless) cottage that we stayed in for the weekend. We were greeted by candles, our favorite Lindor chocolates, fruit/cheese plate, and home-canned goodness; this was an indication of how wonderful the owner, Danelle, takes care of her guests! I have stayed in many B&B's, and never received such attention and care, or felt so welcome!

Perfect Hostess!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived on a Saturday evening accompanied by my sister and brother-in-law. We all received a very warm welcome from Danelle and felt very comfortable and at home immediately. Danelle showed us to our bedroom right away then proceeded to give us a tour of the rest of the house, the cute little cottage and the rest of her awesome backyard. The property is very clean and you feel at home at all times. Danelle keeps her backyard in excellent condition and in addition to the cottage, it includes a garden, some fruit trees, a fire pit area, a gazebo which is perfect for outdoor dining, a pond and a nice big deck perfect for relaxing, visiting or catching some sun. The accommodations are exceptional but what really makes your stay here special is Danelle. She is a very caring and warm individual and really goes out of her way to make you feel very welcome and at ease. Danelle has the perfect personality and attitude to be an excellent hostess of a bed and breakfast. Even though this location is close to both the Island Highway and the Oceanside Route, this location is in an intimate setting and you definitely do not feel as if you are in a busy tourist town. I can't wait to go back for another visit!

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a hidden gem! Lovely accommodation, stunningly landscaped and absolutely amazing host! Danelle is fantastic! The large backyard had a fish pond, beautiful large deck and surrounding fruit trees. Wonderful for letting our 3 year old rip around. This was such a great little getaway and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and a more gracious host. We highly recommend it. Truly a home away from home!
