Recently stayed two nights in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom townhouse unit at Ocean Trails. The apartment was quite spacious and comfortable. VERY clean...nice to see. We were travelling with another couple and had to pay the extra for the 3rd bedroom to get a second bathroom.
The 2 bedroom units only have 1 bathroom. Our unit looked out at other buildings but I think there are some that overlook the water. An easy walk from the property to Rathtrevor Beach and the provincial park is very close too if you enjoy easy trail walking. All in all, a good stay.

Room Tip: If your couple maybe just as to not be infront of the playground other then that it looked like all rooms where pretty good .

We just finished staying a week in Ocean Trails. The 2 bedroom unit was very large compared to other places in Parksville. However, the unit needs a kitchen update. The utensils are limited and the refrigerator made loud, unusual noises that were very bothersome when trying to sleep.
Having no maid service is fine but you would think they would leave cleaning supplies for the bathroom, especially when there are 5 people using it.
They were offering a special for August, stay 5 nights and get 1 night in the off season free.
You had to be careful how you booked in order to get the deal. We stayed six nights and did not get it because we booked on line instead of phoning.

Room Tip: You are not allowed to choose a room, other than the number of bedrooms.

Stayed in a one bedroom condo for five nights in July. Well kept although a few updated kitchen appliances/utensels would have been nice, (everthing stuck in the frying pan due to it being totally scratched, kettle did not shut off automatically and unable to use toaster for bagels). They got the job done with a few struggles. We understand that all the units are individually owned so not sure what others have.Not much to look at out on your deck, except trees. In a quiet area so no problem sleeping except the noise of the ravens in the mornings. Thank goodness it was cool when we stayed there. Ours had electric heat with no air conditioning (just a pedestal fan). Washer and dryer worked fine but a small set of instructions at or near these would have made it a little easier to figure out. Walking trail was just nothing more than a grass strip along the perimeter fence that would take you through everones "backyard". I wouldn't have called it a trail. Didn't try the pool or hot tub so can't comment. You must walk down quite a few stairs/ramp in between other properties to get down to the beach. We weren't interested in the beach so won't comment on it. There were lots of logs etc washed up though. Wifi worked fine and was free. Lots of tv channels to chose from with nice wall mount unit. Bedroom was spacious with ample closet and drawer space. Appeared to have ample parking for visitors. No restaurant on site but there is decent one within walking distance. Check in and out was no problem and people on the desk were extremely nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Check for Air Conditioning if travelling in hot weather.

My family and I invaded this resort/hotel in the middle of May for a week and were pleasantly surprised at what we found. We had a 3 bedroom condo, while not located directly on the beach, it was very close to it with an access ramp. The unit was very spacious, 3 bedrooms, full kitchen with cleaning supplies and every kitchen utensil you could think of, 2 full bathrooms, a dining area, living room with large screen TV and upstairs a family room with a sofa bed and another TV. The master bedroom was wonderful, very large with a lower sitting room area, ideal for curling up with a good book, 2 large closets and a super comfortable bed. Outside there was a patio dining set for 6 six. (BBQ's are also available). The resort was spotless clean with lots of green areas and situated amongst beautiful towering cedar trees. It had a family-friendly pool and hot tub area and next to the pool was a children's playground, with all kinds of wonderful climbing things. All of us were in agreement over the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff here, they were very accommodating to any of our requests. The cost was very reasonable for what we received and we will certainly be returning here and recommending it highly to other people that are travelling to Vancouver Island.

Room Tip: Request a unit close to the beach access
