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.

I am sad to see poor reviews previously on this resort!!!! I am well traveled and found the beachfront cottage to be meticulously clean and well stocked. The beach and view are great. The staff has been wonderful!

Just looking for an escape from the rigors of city life, then this is a fabulous location. The townhouse we rented was well furnished and comfortable. The view out over Rathtrevor Beach simply stunning. We were fortunate to catch the morning sunrise, with the tidal pools glittering in the sun's rays. Peaceful nights, fresh air, what more could you ask.... More

This place was recommended by our friends who adore this particular resort. Upon arrival, the staff was very welcoming, and by the time we were finished signing our life away and making sure we agreed to doing all the dishes, or else....remove the garbage....or else...agreed to paying for all the rentals of everything, we were a little put off.

Rathtrevor is a spectacular beach but buyer beware at Beach Acres. The "Beachfront Cottages" are mis-represented on the website as cottages - one would assume those to be detached single cottages but they are in fact duplex units. For almost $400 per nite over the Labour Day Weekend, our family certainly paid a big premium for beachfront; we were anticipating... More

We stayed in a beach level townhouse. It is older, but had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, great location, a bbq, full size fridge/freezer, stove, nice coffee machine, etc. Very clean property! Also friendly and helpful staff, a clean laundromat and indoor pool. Would love to return next summer. So peaceful here :-)
