"A total of 50 of us stayed in many of the condos for a family reunion July '04. The management is helpful and friendly, the condos are extremely well-equipped, the facilities are very good and the wonderful beach is easily accessed. The town of Parksville is a few minutes drive away for shopping and eats ... Would certainly stay again."

We had a 2 bedroom condo that was quite spacious, very bright large kitchen and very well stocked with plenty of utensils, plates, toaster, blender etc. It also has an in unit washer/dryer ...
