Another couple, my husband and myself, along with our two dogs, spent one night at the Oceanside Resort for New Year's 2014. As usual, the "cabin" (I use the term loosely, because it was larger than our house) was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We like the location, close to Rathtrevor beach, and really enjoyed the chance for a quiet evening in with a nice meal and wonderful company. We had to rush to get out by 11 the next day, but the office wasn't open, so I imagine we needn't have been in such a hurry. I find the rates a little steep, but I find the rates everywhere a little steep. :-) We'll be back.

We spent a week at the resort along with our family and extended family who came in from New York , Winnipeg , Vancouver, Nanaimo and Victoria. Our group actually rented three cabins. All were excellent, well equipped , modern and clean. Great place for a family reunion.Loved the walks to Rathtrevor park on the ocean and the day trips to Cedar Grove and Coombs. Cant wait for next Xmas….

Our adult family stayed in a beautifully appointed cottage for Christmas 2013. My in-laws arrived before us and the staff were very accommodating in letting them in early. The cottages are situated close to the beach for long walks and there is nearby restaurant at another resort, however, it was nice to cook our own meals in the well stocked kitchen. My adult children enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well as close proximity to town. This was our second stay at OVR and it is our first choice when visiting family in Parksville.

Room Tip: Some back on a noisy highway, ask for one in the center or near the frontage road

My family and I recently stayed at the Oceanside Village Resort. Our cabin was clean, well furnished and it had a full kitchen. We enjoyed the location as it was close to trails for bike riding, running and walking and it was close to town. The pool was clean and the facilities were new and well maintained. We will definitely consider staying here again.

I'd give it a 2 out of 5. The staff were very friendly, the setting was beautiful, but to not know that there was no longer a restaurant, no longer a tea/coffee house, and to have a bath tub that wouldn't hold water was really disappointing:( the 1st 2 are on the resort, their poor website, and are very misleading when booking there. The 3rd is on the cottage owner to keep up on.
Otherwise a super cozy layout, and very quiet visit:) Really disappointed with the resort "extras"

The husband, kids and I stayed in one of the Dogwood cottages over the Remembrance Day long weekend. On arrival, we found the cottage to be huge and well stocked with TVs, comfortable places to sit, tea and coffee and nice toiletries in the bathroom. We had a peaceful night's sleep in very comfortable beds and everything about the accommodation was luxurious - a real treat to stay in.

A small point, I think it would be helpful if as well as saying what time the phone lines open in the morning, the answer message also would mention what time they close. I tried to get hold of the Resort a few times prior to arrival to confirm details of our accommodation and kept getting the answer machine, but had no idea if this was because they were busy or the office was closed. So opening hours on the machine would help!

Taking the sheets off the bed seemed a little bit surprising when we were paying such a lot to stay - but I appreciate these cottages are big and therefore maybe they need extra help. I don't know - it seemed a little silly to me.

Otherwise, lovely stay. Thanks so much for accommodating us and great job on your resort!

We were looking for a place to spend a few days with our granddaughters that would feel like home. This definitely did it! With the fully equipped kitchen, we are able to eat all our meals in. The upstairs loft, provided an excellent play area. The proximity to the beach, and other local attractions was excellent. We will definitely stay again and may even make in an annual event.
