Our family gathered at Ocean Trails to celebrate my 70th birthday. The resort had -all amenities we needed. The accommodation was comfortable and the kitchens were well equipped. We throughly enjoyed the pool! The only problem we had was that the three units we rented were not close together so it made it difficult for our gatherings especially in the... More

Let us again wish you a very Happy Birthday and thank you for spending it with us! While we do the best we can to get groups together, it typically has to be done well in advance so we have a little more freedom to place groups in appropriate units. Maybe we can start planning for your 71st and find... More

Good value for a comfortable room with kitchen supplies. Close to shoreline. Away from traffic. Pool and playground. No service and expectation to dispose of garbage and recycles on checkout. No view. Unidentified noisy machine sound during the night.

We’re happy to see that there was so much about Ocean Trials that you liked, but a bit curious as to what the other items you referred to were. We’re certainly available for all of our guests to ask questions of or give feedback to at any time. We hope to see you again someday. More

The room was comfy with lots of room. We were very close to both the path to the beach and the pool. The pool is perfect for children -- chest height for our 7 year old all the way through, so no need to go in with him. Fantastic family weekend -- could not have been happier.

We had a girls night away for the 5K Foam Fest event that took place on a Sat. We had two units as there were 9 of us and both units (1 bedroom and 2 bedroom) were unbelievably spacious. We went up Friday night and had great service checking in. We have already planned our next event for 2017 and... More

Thank you for thinking of us during the 5K Foam Fest. Separate identical rooms in a large rectangle don’t really offer you the common space to sit, mingle and socialize like one large condo does. Anytime you’re ready to make reservations for next year, just let us know and we’ll be delighted to find just the right room for your... More

Wonderful amenities and a great value! The kids were able to run and play with some freedom while the parents were able to watch them from afar... lots of sporting equipment provided, bbq's were great, rooms were a great value (big, clean and inviting) and the beach access was wonderful....all in all a fantastic experience and place to stay.

We love having groups here because we have the space for them! Kids love our open space to play games, and their parents love the fact they’re safe while they do it. You’ve mentioned other items which certainly come in handy for groups looking to hang out and spend time together. We’ll look forward to seeing you all again. More

We’re certainly happy to hear that everything came together so nicely on a Father’s Day getaway. If you forget something at home, like chairs for the beach, stop by the main office – we might have something for you to use. We hope to see you again soon. More

We spent 5 nights at Ocean Trails in a 2-bedroom unit with our 3-year old son. The rate for our stay was fabulous (the main reason for us booking here), and we were not disappointed with the accommodations. Beds were comfortable, furniture was clean and modern. The kitchen was a bit dated, but well-maintained with all the amenities we needed.... More

Our generous sized condominium units certainly have everything a family will need for a short of longer stay. We do recommend that our guests let us know about any item that may seem out of normal operation (like running out of hot water) and we’ll have maintenance look into it straight away. We hope you’ll visit us again. More

Stayed here during our son's tournament in Parksville. The grounds and pool area were quite nice. The condo we staying in was very dated, with old furniture.

I had a one bedroom unit on the bottom floor of a 2 floor complex..Management refuses to reserve a specific unit & will only take requests emphasizing there is no guarantee what unit you will get.
