Ocean Trails is a lovely place to spend a week with a family with elementary aged school children. It has a small pool that is a maximum of about 4 feet deep, a hot tub and a trail to the beautiful expansive beach which takes under 5 minutes.

We are an excellent choice for families and groups of all sizes, and for one simple word: space. We have lots of space to play outdoor games, run around, or maybe just gather everyone together for relaxing dinner. Our condos are set for whatever size family you have and you’ve already mentioned two of the many outdoor amenities to enjoy.... More

We enjoyed our 8 day stay. We had not been to the island for many years and we wanted our young teenagers to enjoy it. Our 2 bedroom was perfect, one queen and 2 single beds. The decor in #7 was modern and very well maintained. We enjoyed day trips to: Little Qualicum Falls/Cathedral Grove/Port Albernie; Bucharts Garden/Victoria (long day);... More

Central Vancouver Island is an excellent spot to do some island hopping. It’s true, we have a very large island – much larger than many US states. But you couldn’t’ be better positioned to do some of the fantastic out trips you and your family took part in – our hats off to you! We’re pleased you made Ocean Trails... More

We found the setting and unit we stayed in very pleasant, clean, comfortable, good location, short walk to the nice pool, and a little further to the awesome beach. We had a 2 bedroom with a pullout bed in the living room, unfortunately the skylight in that room made it a little difficult to sleep from sunup.

We’re happy your stay with us was pleasant. Our suites definitely have space for a lot of people and we’re glad you made the best use of that space. In the winter things can get rather gloomy at times, so the skylights have been a great benefit for guests looking for a little extra sunlight. We hope to see you... More

We stayed at this resort with two other families and have no complaints whatsoever. Close to all we needed and outdoor pool, although small was a bonus. Staff were helpful when needed. Would definitely return

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Trails Resort, weather was great, beach was beautiful, digs were very comfortable. We would have appreciated a smaller frying pan, lets face it, cooking for three we didn't need a 12`` pan no matter what we were enjoying. Restaurants are very good in the area and we did enjoy the sandcastles and of course... More

As they say: the west coast is absolutely beautiful and when the sun is shining it’s paradise! When you can go out to some place like Coombs and bring home some delicious treasures to make a family feast, those are special moments. We appreciate your feedback on the frying pan sizes. Please do come and see us again soon. More

This was our first time in Parksville, and our week at Ocean Trails has us looking forward to a return some day. We were given a spacious two-bedroom unit with full kitchen. Our unit is privately owned (as perhaps all are) with reservations managed through the central Ocean Trails office. Our unit was near the office end of the resort,... More

We certainly want to thank you for not only trying out Ocean Trails for the first time, but for trying out Parksville and our magnificent ocean playground area. There’s so much to see and do: bike, hike, stroll, visit waterfalls, goats on the roof, and naturally enjoy kilometers of sandy beaches and warm water. Shall we say, next year same... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo with 8 members of our family, ranging from a toddler to a senior and it was a perfect location for our holiday.

We gather 3 generations with 7 adults and 6 children. The combination of the wide beach and pools provide the opportunity for all to interact. We get 2 3-bedroom units -- a good amount of space for all. For the oldest generation, it would be great if there was seating with firm back support.
