The room overall was extremely clean, but during the night, I woke up itching all over and noticed insect bites, on arms and legs. Then I moved to couch in the living room and that too didn't help. The next day I had put all my clothing into wash and dryer including bed sheets. The pillows were also put into...

Thank you for your recent stay at Ocean Trails. We are at a loss as to what may have caused you to break out. Our bedding is always washed and dried under hot circumstances, we use mattress protectors and we have a strict inspection program to ensure nothing has been overlooked. We hope the situation didn’t interfere with your enjoyment...

We stayed at a three bedroom unit that was well equipped, modern, nice furniture and very roomy. Shaded by the natural setting of trees but not overbearing and dark. Being a bit away from the pool provided a quieter experience. Sport amenities were nice and free to use. Path to beach a bit steep, could be improved on but manageable...

We’re happy to hear you were able to spend some family time at Ocean Trails! We definitely have the facility to bring families and groups as large as you’d like, share common areas, but also have some individual private space as well. We love the protection and shade our wooded lot gives us, and we’re pleased to hear you share...

What a lovely little resort this is. The staff are friendly and welcoming. They offer up all kinds of things to use (free of charge) such as tennis rackets, boogie boards, skim boards, badminton rackets. The units are updated, though quite basic, and clean. They are equipped with full kitchens and washers/dryers. There is an open lawn area with a...

Thank you for staying with us on your recent visit to Parksville – we appreciate it! We want people to feel right at home here, and no one can remember to bring everything on a holiday, so we have what you need to enjoy our grounds, all-weather court, and of course the magnificent beach.

We really appreciated the close proximity to Rathtrevor Beach, it was an easy walk from the condo. Also enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen, and separate bedroom. Check-in and check-out both went very smoothly.

Our proximity to Rathtrevor Beach is excellent – just ask anyone in the area from other resorts who uses our ramp to get to the beach! When you get back to your condo, you want the room to stretch out and relax, and all the equipment to make a great meal, so we take the worry out of your stay...

I stay for 3 different week over the summer for my work. I managed to fit my family in for all 3 and we had a blast. The beach ,pool, tennis court and local attractions were all fun. The rooms were ok but the fold out bed was to small for the room. The front desk was helpful . The...

Thank you for your repeat stays, they are appreciated, and we have some great news! Earlier this year we put in a very strict No Smoking policy at Ocean Trails, and it has really been a welcome change in policy for guests like yourself. We look forward to your next stay with us – a smoke-free stay!

We believe offering great value is what we try hard to do at Ocean Trails. A fully outfitted condominium unit on a large treed lot at a fair price is why families of all sizes and configurations continue to come back here time and again. We certain are pleased to hear you felt like you got great value and hope...

We certainly feel we live in paradise and we’re glad you felt that way too! It may rain a bit in the winter months, but it sure beats shoveling snow.

While we appreciate your sentiment, it’s you who deserves a big “Thank you” for deciding to stay with us here at Ocean Trails. There aren’t many places that you can bring your family (regardless of size) and have a visit while the kids play outside, or go for a swim. We’re all about quality time, so we hope you’ll return...
