We are a family of three. Our son is 11 and we wanted a fun place near a beach. We had a two bed cottage which was well furnished out of the Ikea store and very comfortable. The kitchen and living were functional and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the bedding clean and fresh. The beach was about... More

We stayed in cottage @209 and as usual things were wonderful. We enjoyed our visit with family in the area very much in that we could have them over for home cooked dinners and relax. Our dogs enjoyed their long walk to the river across the street. Gret place

The 3 bedroom unit we stayed in was beautifully finished with all the amenities you could hope for. I've be staying on this beach since resort drive was almost all camping. I've stayed in just about every resort and hotel on the beach and this is the best. Sure, you can get closer to the beach, but if you don't... More

We stayed at Oceanside Village Resort for three months to get away from winter in Alberta. The resort was perfect for my husband, two cats and myself as it offered comfort and lots to do. A healthy walk to Rathtrevor Park and the ocean was perfect for some daily exercise and if the we didn't feel like walking we'd hit... More

We had a great stay at #233. The cottage even had a box of toys which was a huge hit with our young kids. The cottage was beautiful and clean, although I found the tap water tasted a little gross (bring bottled water??).

The cottage we had was excellent, my only complaint is that it didn't include paper products, coffee filters, toilet paper, scrubbers for cleaning the dishes, a small supply of dishwasher and dish detergent was included but not enough for a week and no laundry detergent. ***(TIP: ask if the cottage you are booked for supply these things as that is...

We stayed here on April 4th, 2015 with our family. We found the cottages to be very clean and comfortable. What we found very frustrating was the 4:00 PM check-in time. The clerk, who was rather officious, would not allow any early check-ins which resulted in many upset people. It's very difficult for people who have travelled a distance with... More

My wife and I (both 60+) spent March 2015 at OVR and can't think of a thing we didn't just love.
