This was a perfect place to stay while I waited to move into my new home. Ocean Trails is located in a great location. It is close to town and a quick 3 minute walk to the beach. The staff are very friendly, prompt and courteous. The place was well taken care of and any issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Great value for your money!

♡♡♡♡♥︎♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ Our favourite place in Parksville, this is an older resort but perfect for families and quiet get-a-ways. Usually we spend the Victoria Day long weekend at Ocean Trails, sharing a condo with friends. But for this crazy COVID-year we have made #12 (a 2-bedroom unit) our summer Vancouver Island base, spending 3 weeks here. We are able to turn the kids loose to enjoy the safe beach, resort amenities and loads of other families while we teleworm and relax. I've even had a chance to finish a book and do some rock painting! Although the heated outdoor pool and hot-tub are under rennovation this month, with private beach access, tennis/pickle ball & basketball courts, communal party/barbeque area and open grassy grounds, there is no lack of things to do and all sports equipment is supplied at the office. The spacious condos and duplexes are nestled under established cedar trees and the grounds are well looked after. Spacious 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites include full kitchens and laundry facilities which are perfect for an extended stay. Low numbered suites are furthest from the beach access, but closest to the tennis courts. They are usually a bit quieter than the higher numbers which are centered around the pool area. Within a 5 minute walk there are bumper cars, mini-golf, a corner store, icecream shop and Rathtrevor park, plus bike paths to take you into town or up to Englishman River for tubing Can't recommend this place enough!

We found our unit to be lovely, quiet, well equipped. It was a pleasant experience to be there and we would go again. We loved the walks on the beach at low tide. The mini golf is so handy. Parksville is central to so many places to see and things to do. It was a wonderful destination to get away from winter on the prairies.

The condo was well appointed and clean. Very comfortable and the front desk were accommodating with arranging my late arrival. There was an obnoxious group partying a couple of doors down but they seemed to have the sense to wrap it up by eleven. I would definitely stay again. A nice short walk to the beachside which is always fantastic to enjoy especially at low tide where you can walk out at least a kilometre from the shoreline. Worth a visit.
