You're just minutes from the centrally-located Community Park, loaded with activities for all ages and it's expansive beach. A varied mix of shops, cafes, grocery and specialty stores make up the Parksville shopping district just minutes away. After a day of walking, hiking, swimming, biking, golfing or shopping, indulge yourself at the Tranquil Moments Day Spa & Salon on site, or sit back and enjoy meals from the restaurant. There is also a hair salon. For dining purposes, we have other fine restaurants that are within a short walk or drive of your cottage.

We had a wonderful stay! The house is well equipped. Having towels and sand toys to use at the beach was a nice touch!
I'm always worried when I book a property, will it be as good as the photos, etc. Well, this property met all my expectations and then some. The house was clean, well stocked and quiet. We appreciated being able to do laundry when we arrived. I would recommend this cabin to my friends. It is a nice walk to the beach.
It was a very cute cabin perfect for our small family! It was a great spot, and so great that we could bring our dog. The kitchen had everything we needed, as we stayed for 7 nights and did lots of cooking. The pool was great and the beach was about 15 min walk away but we brought our bikes and could get there really fast. The only problem was the mattress in the master bedroom was really uncomfortable so I had a lot of back aches every morning, also the duvet cover did not appear to washed as it had blood stains on it when we arrived. Overall, the rest of the cabin was clean and it was so nice to have the week to enjoy it :)
My husband and rented this cottage for a month (mid Dec - mid Jan). When we arrived the cottage was spotless and so very well equipmented that you only need to bring your clothes. We had no problem with anything but if we did we were sure the owners would have addressed it right away. We enjoyed the indoor pool in the complex and the location near Rathtrevor Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon!
Location - Great ... walking distance (with dogs) to Rathtrevor Beach , quick in & out for highway access, not "busy" in and around unit.
Cottage description was totally accurate - completely stocked kitchen - down to spice rack ! Set-up was great - bedrooms, living & dining areas and bathroom all clean, comfortable and well-stocked (linens, etc). Amazing to have washer & dryer on site
Pleasantly surprised at reasonable rate over "busy" Christmas period - having worked in hotels, usually rates spike over Christmas & New Years.
Communication before, during and after was good - expectations were clearly laid out.
Was above & beyond our expectation ..little details that were unexpected: Christmas Tree, welcome package and treats for both us and our dog !, selection of movies, games and for summer guests beach chairs/toys and towels.
We took a couple cards and have recommended this as an option for friends who may be looking for rental options on Vancouver Island.
Sadly with family and visiting we "underutilized" a lot of the options ... even to watch a couple movies, rad a book or use the pool !
Woudl definitely recommend this cottage for a "quiet" getaway of any type ! We'll have to try it again.
My husband and I stayed at morning glory for two days and it was such a great palce to stay. Clean and well organized with all the amenties of home. Unfortunately we had no time to enjoy this cabin as we were invovlved in a weekend wedding. Coming back with my dog as he would love it here in Parksville.
Thanks for the wine and the great experience.

Thank you for this amazing week for my family. We arrived home yesterday and I already wish I was back at your cabin!
You thought of everything. So many extra touches. We will be back soon!
The wine, the beach toys, the beach towels, and more. Thank you!
Also.... the pull out couch was as comfortable as a bed!
