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 :-)

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
