Why Huw & Emma chose Parksville

We spent a lot of time searching for a property on Vancouver Island that would provide an ideal place for us to relax in nature with our young family. When we walked into this home, we knew that this was a place in which we could build great memories and share fun outdoor adventures.

What makes this cabin unique

The main living area is completely open with huge ceilings. It's the perfect place for your entire family to be able to spend quality time together.

Awesome Accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Nicely stocked kitchen and really nice place. Great location and it was very quiet and peaceful yet still close to beach and everywhere. We enjoyed watching the rabbits and deer from the patio and having our morning coffee on the patio. Communication with the owners was quick and easy. I would highly recommend this place and I will definitely book this again when I am back in the area.

Delightful home stay in tranquil surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well-designed spacious accommodation set in woodland. More like a luxury bungalow than a cabin. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds.

The beach is just a short walk away and there are many beautiful places nearby to visit.

We have stayed in many cottages and cabins over the years and this is by far the best.

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was great. It had everything we needed or could think of needing. The listing was accurate, and it is well located to all amenities within Parksville. My husband loved the easy walk to Rathtreavor Park and the beaches. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our first morning there we saw a deer right outside the patio doors. We would and have recommended this place to our friends and family. Easy communication with the owners. We hope to return again.

Home away from home

It had a new washer dryer , huge new fridge, new flooring all the way through. Quiet location but very close to all the stores etc. Had it been summer there would have been a mini golf and pool right opposite. WiFi and cable works great. Great communication with owners

Mini Golf

Growing up my family would come down to the Paradise Fun Park, which overlooks beautiful Parksville Bay on the old Island Highway. This is a fun-filled place featuring two world-famous, 18-hole mini-golf courses, bumper boats, an amusement centre and Italian café. It's great for families or couples.


Goats on the roof! This is a favourite for all visitors. Visit the coombs market and get a selfie with the goats and spend hours walking through the market.

Butterfly World

In nearby Coombs, Orchid Gardens Butterfly World offers visitors the chance to explore their indoor gardens of butterflies, tropical birds and exotic orchids. They also feature a big bug jungle and turtle pond.

Englishman River

Despit the name everyone is welcome.. you don't have to be English. Make a day of this by packing a lunch and exploring all the trails. This is true the best spot see BC's stunning nature.
