About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Sofa Bed, 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 1 - 6

Morning-Glory is a cozy Arbutus floor plan cottage in the Oceanside Village Resort. Under new ownership, look for some refreshing changes as we continue providing the great amenities that have made it a popular vacation home. This cottage has all the amenities, and when you arrive we supply a welcoming bottle of wine along with the cuddly terry robes so you can begin relaxing immediately.

Designed with the outdoors in mind, the cottage has two bedrooms. The windows let in the glorious sunshine and the comfortable design of the cottage encourages rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities - including patio glassware, dishes, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker, blender, mixer and placemats. Full size appliances are provided.

The dining room table comfortably seats six and the stools also work at the eating bar. Play board games, plan trips with the brochures provided or enjoy meals prepared in the fully equipped kitchen or on the gas grill on the patio.

The living room has a sofa bed, HDTV with DVD player and a stereo. It opens onto the sunny deck which has a new barbecue and picnic table for those who enjoy outdoor meals. The vaulted pine ceiling in the living and dining room gives a wonderful light and airy feel to this cottage. The ceiling fan and gas fireplace are there to ensure you are comfortable whatever the weather. Watch the TV (cable included) or videos/DVDs or curl up with a book. A supply of games, puzzles and DVDs provide hours of entertainment.

The master bedroom has it's own TV and DVD player. We have a new high quality queen size mattress after hearing from a few guests that the previous one was no longer comfortable! The second bedroom has a double bed and duvet. Warm terry robes are supplied for adults. The one large bathroom has a tub and a separate shower. All towels are supplied..

The cottage is also equipped with local telephone and high speed secured wireless internet access that is not shared by any other cottage.

You will have access to the Resort's indoor pool, hot tub and exercise room; while the beach is a short 10 minute walk away. For beach days, we supply beach chairs, towels and sand castle building toys. Adjacent to the complex is Riptide Lagoon Miniature Golf and bumper cars. 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 only charge 5% tax, no cleaning fee unless the cottage is left dirty and no extra fees for additional guests. We charge $20.00/day + 5% GST for pets to a maximum of $100.00 + GST.

Mid-island retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very clean, convenient, and cozy. It's great to be so close to all the mid-island delights, such as Rathtrevor beach and Coombs market (Goats on the Roof!). The kitchen is great, many pots and pans and bowls and such, which is important for us as we make most of our own meals when on vacation. The dining table accommodated our group of 5 easily though I'd prefer regular height chairs to the tall ones in the cottage. More pluses include comfortable beds, laundry, good wi-fi, and a swimming pool just a few steps away.

And of course - being able to have our family lab with us on vacation made it a true family vacation!

Great location, great cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a great dog friendly cottage that is so well equipped with all things food, dog, and hiking orientated - even a backpack. Absolutely spotless with a large comfortable kitchen/dining/living room. Thank you Arlene for a very pleasant stay. Not your fault the weather was dreadful!

Nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home in your lovely cottage. There is nothing that wasn't provided or needed in this cottage. My Mom and I had a wonderful holiday. Even our little dog Emma was so relaxed and at home looking out the patio door. Great location and ground level access. Very quiet location, warm and cozy. Seriously the nicest vacation accommodation I have ever stayed in.
