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.

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
