“Perfect Peace!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

My son and I stayed for a night as we were heading up the island on a road trip. Right away we felt at peace. The front desk was very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in a waterview townhouse. The townhouse had a fantastic view of the beach from almost everyroom. It was fantastic being able to make our own meals in a full kitchen. In the morning we walked the beach then drove for an hour and hiked around Mt. Washington. It was a perfect getaway. Unfortunately we had to move on, otherwise we would have been back for another night, or two! We can't wait to go back!

It was excellent place to stay has everything you need, my kids wish we could stay 3 more nights they love the pool and the beach and playground. We have so much fun and one night it wasn't enough to stay in beautiful cottages staff was helpful and friendly.

This is our 4th (or 5th??) annual trip back to Beach Acres. We go out each year with friends or family, and love it each time. We usually stay in the Oceanview cabins up on the hill overlooking the beach. They have such an awesome view and wide open space for the kids to run around. The cabins are nicely maintained, a little dated but everything works.

Beach Acres really has it all for family fun. The vacation was just easy. Our clean and modern cabin was at the top of the road giving us quick access to the beach, pool and pub. We visited with another family and all (yes, even the kids) dined at the pub that has lovely tables outside with a grassy play area for the kids. The BBQ area is conveniently located next to the park. We will be back for sure.

My sister and I were in Parksville for an overnight trip. We drove in just to take a look and ended up staying in unit 32, on the top of the hill overlooking the beach. We did not want to leave. It is so quiet and peaceful. Dona, in the office, could not have been any nicer or more welcoming. The unit was spotless and very comfortable.

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights for my brother's wedding. The resort had everything we needed. We stayed in Forest Cottage 67 which was nicely updated. There was just two of us but it also had a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom. It was very quiet nestled in the trees and a short walk to the beach. The cabin had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again. The resort was very accommodating for a group of our family also staying at the resort.

This truly is a quiet haven in the woods. I woke up one morning and thought the clock was wrong because the room was so dark and quiet. But, pulling aside the curtains, it truly was daytime and so quiet on a Saturday morning! We were in one of the Forest Cottages which back onto a green belt. The cottage is nicely equipped with 2 bedrooms, a full bath (bathtub/shower combo), kitchen, family/living room with a gas fireplace. Outside there are lawn chairs on the front patio and a full patio set on the back patio. It's an easy few minutes to the properties beach. Beach fires are allowed in the designated fire pits. The resort also offers free wi-fi. The overall experience is one of peace, quiet and relaxation and restoration.

Room Tip: For quiet - the forest cottages cannot be beat!
