Amazing location - great for 2 small families
We were two families staying at Doug and Cindy's home in Parksville. The house was super spacious and complete with everything we needed for a few days stay. The location was unbeatable - the vistas in the house are beautiful, we were able to see our kids from the house while they played on the beach. There's a private staircase for the street that goes right down to the beach. 3 mins drive to downtown Parksville for groceries and local restauarnts, 15 mins to Qualicum beach and 10 mins to Coombs. The house - we made breakfasts in the house and one lunch and found we had to be really careful about dripping anything on the floor since it was carpeted in the kitchen. The layout of the house was great - rooms had views and 2 out of the 3 rooms had dark blinds to block out the light. The living room and the queen bedroom could use some blinds since the sun beams into the windows at sunrise. The sofa bed in the living room was really uncomfortable though - can use a new sofa bed. All in all we still gave it 4 stars because of the location and the master and the 3rd bedroom w/ 2 single beds were really comfortable. Like I said, we really liked the layout of the house and with the suggested improvements, would love to rent Doug and Cindy's place for a much longer stay next summer. It was a perfect short vacation for us. Thanks Doug and Cindy!
