The family went for a week long vacation to Vancouver Island and enjoyed the stay at the resort. The room was well equipped and didn't lack anything. Sufficient cook-ware and utensils and the BBQ on the patio was clean and worked well, too. The pool was well maintained and clean. Kids had a blast! Little bit of a walk to... More

We looked at every place in the area and this one by far was the nicest. Of course if you want waterfront, they are limited and you'll pay more. The only problem I found with the place was they have all queen beds. But they are new, clean, modern, the outside if manicured and if you don't have to look... More

This resorts rents out rooms that they already know have a problem with being too hot (due to a complete lack of air circulation, I think). So unless you want to pay $175 or more for a bad night's sleep, ask about air conditioning before you stay here. Also, there was a big tear in the window screen and the... More

Thank you for your comments. I understand your frustration with being too hot to sleep in the unit you were in. Had we known about the issues you encountered at the time we would have been happy to address them immediately, or move you to a more comfortable unit if they could not be fixed. I am happy to contact... More

We selected Sunrise Ridge for the May (Victoria Day) long weekend based on location, price, and amenities - particularly the heated outdoor pool and fill kitchen/BBQ. The property itself is in a good location, within a few minutes drive to Rathtrevor Beach or the main community beach in parksville. The beach at the property is basically non-existent (it's a sliver... More

Let me start by saying sorry for the disappointing experience you had at our Resort. I will try to reach you by telephone to discuss your experience and I will also respond to each of your points in writing below. The beach at high tide is rocky, but as the tide goes out, there is plenty of sand after about... More

Beautiful resort. We walked in and couldn't believe we got something this nice for the price. Back home a one night stay would have been twice of what it is here. There is a little noise that you can here from the neighbours but it's so worth the stay.

We stayed in a two bedroom in the 400 block. It has a 1 bedroom lock-off so the kids had their own bedroom AND living room. They loved it (as did we). The unit had three bathrooms, as well as a well stocked full kitchen with stainless steel appliances and quartz counter tops. In-suite laundry and some detergents supplied. Very... More

WE enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean and modern and the view was excellent as well. The customer service was good as well. Our only complaint is that pool and hot tub are only opened seasonally and they have no reciprocal arrangement with an other resort to use their pool facilities so we had some very sad children:(...

Good day, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We appreciate all comments and are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. As with many properties, outdoor facilities are seasonal. Our hot tub opened March 1st, and pool will open May 1st. Our condo units are vacation homes and we do not provide housekeeping daily, however... More

Disclaimer: we traded out week from a resort in Beaver Creek, CO. This should not have been offered as an equivalent. There is no comparison to the excellent resort we own in Beaver Creek.
