Aileen is a terrifically accommodating host who has thought of everything to make a stay relaxing. Beautifully finished suite. Plenty of privacy and an amazing place for walking and enjoying nature. Very close to Rathtrevor beach.

Nice place by the ocean in quiet neighborhood.

The suite is in a nice quiet neighborhood across from the ocean and walking distance to Rathtrevor beach. We road our bikes on the trails there. The unit was well stocked with everything. Aileen had left some treats as well.

Perfect for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation is up to date with furnishings, appliances, kitchenware, bathroom, etc. and very well maintained (clean). The hostess has anticipated your every wish. The area where the house is located is well known to us and is central to Parksville and other near by attractions. The weekend was a little getaway for us and we plan on doing it again. Thanks.

A gem of a place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It is so nice to stay where you have direct access to the people who own and manage the property where you stay, especially long term. Aileen and John supplied everything we needed and more in a large lower level suite in their home situated so close to the ocean, walking trails, wildlife and more. Highly recommended.
