This was our second stay and won't be our last. The following attributes is what makes Beach Acres perfect for us; first of all pet-friendly (even providing doggy biscuits); the size of the forest cottage (we stayed a month so having the extra space was important); close to Rathtrevor Park (we walked 7 km every morning and it was beautiful);...

This resort has almost all of the amenities one would need or expect for a short term stay or long term stay. There are many styles of accommodations. We chose a forest cottage which was a beautiful setting but a little isolated for a long term stay. Too far away from the pool, laundry, office, etc. We would choose an... More

Stayed in unit #30 with a lovely ocean view, quiet at this time of year, steps away from the on-site restaurant. Comfortable, clean, gas fireplace, fully-equipped kitchen. They've really thought of everything. A great place to rest & relax.

We stayed for 4 days and the layout of the townhouse unit was perfect for 2 couples with one main floor bedroom and one upper floor bedroom. While there are ocean views from both levels the outlook was best from the second floor deck. The unit included a small eat-in kitchen with all necessary appliances and utensils for making a...

This resort has three sets of accommodation: Beach-level cottages and townhouses, Ocean view townhouses on the low bluff above them, and forest cottages spread out further back, towards the top of the resort property. Each option has its pros and cons. We wanted an open view of the ocean so we booked ahead for an Ocean-view townhouse. It was not... More

My husband and I stayed for a week with our dog. After we booked we were contacted to see a sea view cottage wasn't available but they had a partial sea view bungalow. When we arrived we were so pleased we stayed in the bungalow instead, it was detached so we didn't have any problem with noise from neighbours. Nice... More

We are disappointed that we have not met our guest expectations. Our goal is always to go above and beyond. With our long term stays, all linens are exchanged every Wednesday and if guest require additional services there is an option to have this at a nominal fee. We do have these specifics outlined on our website. We also provide... More

The value of the forest cabins in the off season is amazing. And they are quite private, well stocked, and really clean. I do t think we would stay here in the summer, 300 a night if a bit steep. But the off season rate was great. We brought our dog and they had a bed, bowls and a biscuit... More

Gorgeous, beautiful, calm, clean - fires on the beaches, sand for miles. Great pub, lovely staff at Beachacres throughout - very charming. I had a problem with booking and they put it right on the same day - all-round lovely.
