I stayed at this condo with my whole family - kids, mom, the whole bunch - and it was fantastic. The beach is literally seconds away and there is a trail that connects into the adjoining park literally just a few meters away. The place was clean and well-maintained and it's large enough that you don't feel like you are living on top of each other. The two decks on different levels is a huge perk. Getting out on a deck by yourself is a real treat in a family vacation. And it's close enough to amenities that you never have to go without something you need, but not so close that feel surrounded. We've stayed in Parksville several times over the years and we will be returning here, next time we visit.
Never too soon to book your summer week away, Rathtrevor Beachfront, Parksville.
