Parksville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Ravenwood Cottage offers guests a very comfortable, clean and cozy home away from home, regardless of the season. This family-friendly property offers children and children at heart plenty of space for outdoor games like badminton or Frisbee and is a wonderful space to come back to after day trips to local beaches, golf courses, ski hills, and hikes.

The Ravenwood Cottage offers a large fully equipped, modern kitchen. The sundeck can be used for serving afternoon tea or a summer evening meal. The deck overlooks the back yard meadow, making it a good spot for keeping an eye on the kids. For winter visits, the centre of attention in the living room is an efficient wood burning stove, which invites you to put your feet up and read, or take a warm relaxing rest after dinner. The three bedrooms comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Nights are very quiet, allowing for restful undisturbed sleep. The sparkling, tidy bathroom features both a bath tub and shower.

Ravenwood Cottage is situated within the Parksville city limits yet retains a rural feel. Parksville's downtown shopping district is 5 minutes away by car, where you will find all the necessities for your stay, and more. Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is also a short 5 minutes drive away. In summer it is a favourite swimming beach and a perfect place for quiet walks, sunset picnics and views across Georgia Strait. Top Bridge Regional Park, on the Englishman River, can be reached by foot in about 20-25 minutes and is a favourite for local fresh water swimming. The river can be reached by a 3 minute walk for Fall salmon watching. The quaint town of Qualicum Beach is 15-20 minutes drive north on the Old Island Highway. And several provincial parks are reachable in under 30 minutes, including Little Qualicum Falls, Englishman River Falls, MacMillan and Spider Lake. In winter, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, about 1 hour drive north on the Inland Island Highway near Courtenay offers Vancouver Island's best skiing experience. Ravenwood Cottage is just 30 minutes drive north of the Departure Bay Terminal in Nanaimo, the shortest ferry trip from and to Vancouver.

So whether you like to climb mountains, want to show the kids some special swimming spots during the summer, if you are a snowbird looking for a place to call home during the winter, or just want a quiet yet convenient retreat on Vancouver Island, Ravenwood Cottage can accommodate and will make your stay very enjoyable.

This is a very simple but spotless home. It is very spacious and has everything you will need for you stay no matter how long. Though it is not on the main waterfront area it is extremely close to Rathtrevor and City beach (Like a 2 minute drive.). We were extremely satisfied.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was very clean and well equipped and had lots of room for our whole family. Although not right on the beach, everything was close by and easy to access.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great stay at the Ravenwood cottage. It had everything and more that we needed. We saw deer hanging out in the front yard or back yard almost everyday. I was able to make my sisters wedding cake in the kitchen. I thought the beds where comfortable. I appreciated that there were screens on the windows to allow fresh air flow in the cottage. The cottage is tucked away on a fairly quiet street yet just a short drive to the city centre.

Reviewer Comments:

The property description was accurate, the property was very well maintained and clean, the manager was helpful and I would recommend this property to anyone. Everything worked very well. The bathroom, the kitchen, the washer/dryer and the bbq. Even the wifi was excellent. It was spacious and the yard was beautiful. We felt very lucky that we found this property and would book it in the future when we go back to Parksville. We enjoyed our stay on the island. We went to the beach, Cathedral Grove, did whale watching, went to Coombs and drove around and did sightseeing. We will have great memories of this place for years to come. Loved it.

Reviewer Comments:

The booking process was very easy and the way EMR has there system set up is awesome. With reminder emails and knowledgeable staff. Our greeter was very friendly and was quick to answer any questions we had. The app they supply is very nice but I found that it didn't have all of the tabs filled in with info. Would have been nice to have that app working at its full potential. Anyways the rental itself was good. It was clean and offered everything you could need. My kids slept like a rock on the twin sized beds but my husband slept awful on the bed. Maybe a mattress upgrade is needed in they future. But all in all it's an affordable rental super close to parksville and rathtrevor beach (sp). I will be considering this location as a rental next year :)
