change of plans and we decided to go to Parksville. Choose Beach Acres becuase we needed a 2 bedroom. Great place and we had an oceanview as we were up on a cliff but still pretty darn close to the shore. Farily steep driveway to walk down to the beach and back up. Only the first row closest to the... More

Stayed cabin 55 which has been renovated and is lovely and private. 5 minute walk to the best beach of any resort in Parksville. 2 minute walk to the Black Goose pub where we enjoyed a pint or two and card game. Family friendly property. Limited short notice availability in summer but worth the try hard to leave after short... More

Great beach location, stayed in the cottage by the ocean, the kids lived the beach and having nightly fires.. Clean rooms with a full kitchen and BBQ. Highly recommend for families... Quiet resort, everyone is super friendly. The resort could do with some updating in the rooms

This is my second visit to Beach Acres and I'll be back. I walked in looking for a cabin for 10 days and rented a forest cabin. I enjoyed the peaceful weekday evenings more than the busier family filled weekends being a solo older traveller. I didn't try the on site pub and am sorry the pub plays music from... More

This resort has everything a family could want. You can rent bikes and helmets at a reasonable rate and just sign out sports equipment. The playground and tennis courts are enjoyed by all ages. Look for the artist path in the woods with surprises around every bend. The beach is spectacular and the kids love exploring it. Parents can relax... More

It was the May long weekend and we arrived at Beach Acres ready for our three night stay. To our utter surprise we realized our booking was made for the following weekend. We had messed up. Expecting to receive no help and a curt good luck we were instead met with a helping hand and accomodating group. Chris found us... More

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

The place has a pool and several other activities that are available .. Bird watching is great around here as well as hiking or biking ,there are alot of trails... 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.
