Stayed here recently in one of the beach level townhouse. Very nice location, as we were a 30 second walk to the beach and a 2 second walk to the pub :-) The accommodation itself was average - the kitchen and bathroom were in need of a little update; the beds were comfortable, and we liked having the loft for...

Stayed in February 2014 whilst on a research trip of VI. We rented cottage 11 for two nights and was very satisfied with how well stocked the chalet was. The beds were comfortable and best of all was the close proximity to the beach. It was only 50 yds away and we spent most of our short trip beachcombing and... More

Stayed here with our family of 4 in unit number 26. Great location as you could see ocean from patio and just a short walk down the hill to be on the beach. Staff was great upon check in as we weren't keen on our first unit so they let us switch to unit 26 which although was only 1... More

The most bizarre thing I have seen in all my dozens of hotel/motel/and resort experiences from seedy Montreal hostels to five star Mexican resorts: a foamy-soap dispenser you see in below-average mall bathrooms attached to the shower wall with a label on it describing it as "shampoo, hand soap, body wash". I should have taken a picture of it. It... More

We are so sorry to hear that our resort did not live up to your expectations. We would've liked to make your stay more comfortable. We are sorry that you did not care for the soap/shampoo/body wash dispenser that we provide in the bathroom. As an environmental initiative, we changed to this type of product about fifteen years ago, Over... More

We've been going to Beach Acres for around 7 years. Our kids have grown up here and look forward to it every summer. Although the beach front cottages may seem more inciting, we prefer the forest cottages. The kids can bike and have easy access to the play ground, arcade (it's not amazing but they love it), tennis courts etc.... More

Hard to beat these cottages on the water and just above the water with a view. Our well furnished cottage included a patio for eating the fresh crabs we bought at the wharf and watch the sunset. The cottages on the low bluff are more private than those right on the beach. Casual walks on the sand morning and evening... More

Firstly, thank you for your kind words. We hope you, overall, enjoyed your stay. Secondly, let me apologize as it sounds like our breakdown of extra services and rules of the property caused some stress. You definitely should have been provided with a breakdown of those, as who would ever want to memorize that while on vacation? There should have... More

We stumbled on his gem as the Black Goose Pub and Restaurant was recommended to us for lunch. We took one look at the layout and decided to stay. For two couples it was as reasonable as renting two units at a boring motel. We rented #37. Townhouse with 2 bedrooms. Very comfortable and fully equipped kitchen. Spent 4 hours... More

Beach Acres is clean, comfortable and unpretentious - all you need for a restful getaway. Stayed at #46 'townhouse' although is was detached. Considering this is a family destination it was still really pleasant in terms of ambiance for a couple. Fully equipped kitchen although we mainly ate at the Black Goose pub adjacent to Beach Acres. This is a... More

We stayed at one if the lovely forest cottages while waiting for our furniture, etc. to arrive from back east. It had everything we could possibly want in accommodations. Felt like home the second we walked into the place. Our adult children were able to come visit us for a couple of nights, so having the extra bedroom and the... More

Our guests tell us a holiday at Beach Acres Resort reminds them to slow their pace down for some golf, a walk on the beach, to read the book Oprah recommended, and most importantly, to spend time with friends and family. Our cottages and townhouses are a home away from home you can comfortably call your own - time and time again. ... more   less
