Our nicely appointed two bedroom suite had everything we wanted including a fireplace in the living room, TV, full kitchen and balcony. The perfect location on a fantastic stretch of beach had gorgeous views, making for a very memorable occasion. Will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

We stayed at the Ocean Sands Resort for three nights. We had a lovely studio and found it lovely and cosy as there was a lovely comfortable king side bed, gas fire, and jacuzzi tub all in the studio. Plenty of towels. As the weather was not too good our room with a wonderful view made the short vacation enjoyable... More

We stayed at the Ocean Sands Resort for five nights in October in unit 113, and I must say, the view from the deck is spectacular! The resort management were very friendly and helpful. They weren't sure if our unit had a hair blower and iron, so they had these ready when we checked in. They suggested Otake Korean Barbeque... More

We only stayed one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. The place was very nice, with a lovely view of the beach. It was very easy to get to the beach (take elevator down, the short steps and you are there). Had long walks on the beach. There is also a park close by which you can access... More

The massage on the shower was to die for great. The people who... More

We only stayed for a night but it was a wonderful stay. We had a little delay so we called them if a late check in would be okay and it was no problem. Staff was very welcoming and friendly and despite we booked through an external site my little note to get one of the special rooms was fullfilled.... More

We rented this 2 bed condo for 1 night and we were smart to eat in so we could maximize our time with the amazing view. The condo isn't new but definitely not tired, very well kept. Nice gas fire place provides great ambience in the living room. Kitchen will all amenities. I would recommend non-stick pans as this prevented... More

I grew up near Parksville and remember awesome family camping trips to Rathtrevor, so am so glad to get to share this area with my family.The views from... More
