We spent a week with our Canadian family at Beach Acres in one of their Ocean View holiday homes. The view from the patio and main bedroom was magnificent and the beach was only a short walk away, albeit down a rather steep hill. The beach is perfect for young children though the tide does go out rather a long... More

We stayed two nights in one of the Ocean View two bedroom units. The view was wonderful but the walk down to the Beach involved a very steep climb back up. These units are individually owned and I suspect the investment by the owners vary. The furniture in ours was very dated. The televisions were very old, in fact so... More

My husband and I recently visited Beach Acres for a mini getaway. The beach was just steps from our door, which made beach combing so amazing. I liked the idea of fire pits out front but wasn't comfortable with the fact each unit didn't have it own fire pit as I'm not comfortable sitting in front of another unit using... More

My husband and I our 2 grandbabies and daughter stayed in a 2 bedroom beachfront. Loved the location and having direct access to the sand and water. The accomodations were what we had expected. Not terribly roomy but functional. The only complaint or rather comment I would have is that in the bunk room is a skylight that has no... More

Beach Acres is a family tradition. We come every year but this fine decided to try out a beach level unit. What a treat to walk right out on to the sand from your unit. Looking forward to it again next year.

A two bedroom plus living room sofa makes this a roomy, comfortable accommodation in the woods, by the sea. Lots to do for family or for nature enthusiasts. Coming from the mainland, it is a short drive from the Nanaimo ferries, but do reserve the ferry in the summer if your time is precious or you dislike long waits in... More

We booked just prior to May long weekend and the service was excellent. There were four of us (two couples) in a two bedroom cabin in the woodsy part of the resort. The walk to the beach is easy and short and there is a trail heading north that goes for several miles right along the beach. There are many... More

We stayed over the May long weekend with 30plus family members to celebrate my Grandpa's 90th birthday. We all rented cabins up on the top level, either ocean view or partial ocean view units. Each unit was larger than expected easily sleeping each family with space and had fully equipped kitchens. Our only complaint was the lack of soap/shampoo in... More

This is our 3rd stay. Up until this year I have loved the place. This year we noticed that the internet was very poor. Not sure if they have switched providers?? The cable is not very good. If you are here in the summer you most likely would not be inside. We were here in March and the first couple... More

Beach Acres is located next to Madrona Resort and Tigh-Na-Mara on a beautiful beach next to Rathtrevor Park so the location can't be beat. There are great walking trails right next door in the park, along the beach or through the forest. The resort itself has three main types of accommodation...beach front condos situated right on the beach, townhouses situated... More

Our guests tell us a holiday at Beach Acres Resort reminds them to slow their pace down for some golf, a walk on the beach, to read the book Oprah recommended, and most importantly, to spend time with friends and family.
