This was our second visit to this charming resort. Our girls loved the cottages and said it was like staying in dollhouses. Our unit was fully stocked and we made full use of the kitchen, laundry, barbeque and pool. Short drive/walk to Rathtrevor Beach which is a fantastic way to spend the day. Also loved the mini-golf and local museum. Kids were sad and teary eyed when it was time to leave. Will definitely be back!

Loved it. Didn't want to leave. Will go back next year. We got a nice spot right across from the pool. The cottages feel like home. I thought there was plenty for little kids to do unlike another reviewer. My 4 and 2 year old loved the pool and going for walks. Qualicum has a cute little toy store if your kids get really bored. Nice and quiet too. Super cute and highly recommend. <3

Dear Past Guest,

Thank you very much of the fabulous review and especially for taking the time from your busy schedule to write about us.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your cottage and having it close to the pool for the toddlers must have made things much easier on you. In case you were not aware, at the Community Park along the beachfront in the heart of Parksville is a very large playground for young children with quite an assortment of items for the children to play on. It's the best I have ever seen actually.

Again, thank you for your interest in Oceanside Village Resort and we hope to welcome you back in the future for another excellent experience.

Kind Regards,
Kathy Fraser
Resort Manager

Wonderful, modern resort. New cottages, with upscale interiors, comfortable, affordable. We loved the cottages with the loft areas as they provide extra space and uniqueness. We highly recommend this resort and the fabulous Parksville area. You won't be disappointed.

We enjoyed our stay at OVR. however, we had young children with us, and there was not much for them to do--specifically, no playground. The mini golf was a bit over sold--had to pay for one round to get another one at a discount--again not much for kids. The pool was very good, but the beach was farther away than we had been told.

Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for your nice review even though you did have some issues.

When building our second phase of our resort, the developers did put in the plans to have a green belt and playground within the 200's area but the City made them take it out and build more cottages. That was very unfortunate!

There is however a fantastic playground for children down at the community park just a 5 min drive from our resort. As for the beach, it can be a longer walk if doing so with small children but a 2 min drive around the corner has you parked right in front of some of the best Parksville Beach at Rathtrevor Park.

We do appreciate your writing about us and if we can be of any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us as we do hope that we can welcome you back here again.

Kind Regards,
Kathy Fraser

Really well appointed cabin. We stayed in a bedroom, a full kitchen plus a loft. The cabins are fully loaded with all you need. The check in staff were very helpful. Did not use all the amenities but the pool and hot tub looked great. It's an easy walk to the beach and oh my its worth it. The tide was out and you can walk for km's. Our first time at the resort but will return for sure.

Hello Adrian,

Thank you so very much for your extremely positive review on your experience here with us at Oceanside Village Resort.

I am pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and the cottage which you were assigned to. We take much pride in our accommodations and do our utmost to ensure that each guest of the resort receives the WOW factor and leaves wanting to come back again and again.

Yes, I have to agree with you, the beaches are the most beautiful aren't they. I am glad that you were able to experience the low tide and what the beaches have to offer in the way of miles of endless sandiness and hours of walking and enjoying the beautiful view.

I look forward to welcoming you back to our beautiful property in the near future and if I can be of any assistance to you in the mean time, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards,
Kathy Fraser

We stayed here for our sisters annual birthday getaway, our unit was fresh, and well outfitted. The front desk staff were very warm and friendly throughout all dealing with them. We also appreciated very much the telephone call to let us know our unit was available, nice touch. The unit we were in had two bedrooms, loft upstairs, and two bathrooms. Very nicely put together. My only complaint would be that it was a lot of work to clean the outside table which had not been touched all winter. A cleaning rag left under the sink would have helped because it took a lot of
paper towels to clean it. The other facilities were well maintained and left a very good impression.

Hi Past Guest,

Thank you very much for the wonderful review you have written about your stay. It pleases us that guests are able to come and enjoy their stay with us and leave feeling refreshed and pleased with their stay.

I do apologize for the dirty patio table as that is not our standards. We do an extensive spring cleaning of each cottage inside and out each May/June in and somehow this outdoor table was missed which is not what we want guests to walk in to. I am extremely sorry for this and had you contacted our front desk, we would have had maintenance go over right away and take care of it.

We do look forward to hopefully being able to welcome you back to our Resort in the near future and if we can be of any assistance in the mean time, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards,
Kathy Fraser
