When there with the family and the cat - location is nice - you can walk in the east part of Shediac that covers 5-6 restaurants, its very close to the Drive-in cinema and few other attractions. Inside the unit was nice and clean, they change towels upon request and as bonus we received a free pass to the Parlee beach parking and there was an Oyster day serving - didn't expect that...Tried to walk to the beach twice but mosquitoes were very aggressive in the forested area so we gave up on that and were going by car. Overall very pleasant - only remark we had is the hot water tank is shared between two units and if there are big families on both sides might run out.
I was there for a week in August with my wife and 2 kids. This was close to the beach. It's a 20-minutes walk or a 2-minutes drive. The cottages have been all renovated and look great and are clean. If you get a chance to come to Shediac, NB I'd recommend you book here.
In September we stayed in Chalets Parlee Beach! This recent trip unfortunately they were all booked up. It is such a popular tourist spot! The chalets are comfy, and equipped with everything a traveller needs. The chalets are clean and comfortable and delighfully decorated! We look forward to our next stay there!
Tha stay was relaxing. I found places to visit and walk. I would have enjoyed getting a pass for parlee beach for the 5 days I was there but I did not know I could get a pass. I invited my grand children and family to come over so we could go to Parlee beach after 6 p.m. which was free. We visited the Giant Lobster and took photos. We had a lovely time. We drove to the places we wanted to see. I could not have a late check out. The price was150$ a night. Had a view at the back. Other tourists stayed in the front half of the cottage.
We booked these chalets as we wanted to be close to Parlee Beach. We stayed 3 days-2 nights. What a great choice we made! They were very clean and well furnished. Full bathroom and 2 bedrooms- 1 on loft and 1 off living space, also with a pull out couch. We did find that there weren't sufficient bbq utensils, so that is a note of you plan on bbqing. There are 3 communal bbqs and 2 fire pits. The bbqs aren't in great shape- 2/3 have rusted grills, but that's my only complaint. Other than that, you'll need your items and food and you're good to go. There are 2 cottages attached one behind the other with an adjoining door, if you plan on vacationing with another couple/family. The playground and spacious front lawn kept my 2 boys entertained while we were on site. Great service and staff. Definitely recommend and will return in the future. …
My friends and I were trying to find a place to stay on a Tuesday so we could all go to Captain Dan's. We were refused at ALL the motels in Parlee because we were under 25 except this one, they were so friendly and accommodating to us and they did not discriminate because we are all only 22. The cottages were more than we could have asked for and it was very well-kept and clean. Only complaint would be that it got a little hot up in the loft. I would most definitely stay here again in the future.
I travelled with a group of friends to this location for what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Having been struggling with a bad back (and having read the reviews about poor beds) I called in advance to inquire if any beds had been replaced and if I might be able to be placed in a chalet with a decent bed. The staff told me that they would try to accommodate this and that they were reasonable sure that the chalet I was in, #17, had new-ish beds. Upon my arrival (after midnight) I was ready for a good night of sleep. Unfortunately, the bed was incredibly hard and uncomfortable. It put a lot of pressure on an already weak back and has sent me on a downward spiral of pain and discomfort. I slept all of about an hour and a half, broken up. The next day I went to the main office to ask about the bed and they told me that they were "hotel/motel standard" and that firmer mattresses "last longer so they are more cost effective" for them. I have stayed in a NUMBER of hotels and motels and it is not my experience that beds are of this poor quality. They told me that the replaced beds were from the suites that they also rent...so "new-ish" actually means "used and no longer good enough for our suites". Shrugging me off, they offered an air mattress and a slim foam pad. I took this and actually slept about 5 hours the next night. To make matters worse, the chalets are not air conditioned. I don't mean to sound prissy; as a matter of fact, I don't often even use the AC in my own house, but with the very high humidity, coupled with sleeping in a loft, it was absolutely stifling. If it wasn't the terrible mattress keeping me awake it was the hot, stuffy air. They say that they have "some fans", but we weren't able to get our hands on any until later into the trip. Unable to tolerate the pain, and worried about how much damage I was doing to my muscles, I cut my losses and got on a plane home only 3 days into my "vacation". Today, a week after I left this dreaded place, I am still suffering from the pain that the bed inflicted. This was not a vacation, but a nightmare. I love the *idea* of this place. A great place to go with a group, cook on the BBQ and sit around a campfire, but the unwillingness to respond to complaints about the beds is unacceptable. They seem like they are happy to just keep moving people in and out of their chalets with no concern for their well-being. Good back or bad, I do NOT recommend that anyone subject their body to that torture. I would like to raise a red flag to anyone that is planning on staying here: DON'T.…
We stayed at this complex for 5 nights. When booking I did not know that the chalets were like duplexes...attached one behind the other...the pictures do not show this on the website. The chalets are spacious. The beds are not in good shape and need to be replaced. The kitchen is not well stocked if you plan to cook any meals. The living room area was spacious but the furniture was in need of replacement. We did not need to use the pull out couch but I'm sure that it was in need of replacement as well. You can get fresh kitchen and bathroom towels each day if you want. You need to exchange them at the main office. Note: the chalet is not cleaned for the time that you stay there...only before and after. For what we used this place for it was OK for my family of 4. I found it to be pricey for what we got. One perk was the free pass to Parlee Beach. The beach is beautiful but busy. The water was very warm for ocean water and my daughter swam for over an hour straight. This location was great to do day trips to Moncton, Bouctouche and Hopewell Rocks. The town of Shediac has all amenities that you would need.…
Cottages are well furnished although microwave and TV are antiquated. No DVD player either (in case of rain). Kids liked the bed in the loft and spiral staircase. We didn't realize the cottage buildings were actually 2 separate residences attached together. There was little noise transfer though. Not much privacy in the courtyard area as very close together. Location was very close to Parlee Beach and main drag in Shediac though right behind a gas station. Walk to Parlee Beach ~ 25 min and can be buggy. Owners have season passes they lend you if you drive/park for the day to go to Parlee which was nice. Communal BBQ worked well and was clean. Owner was nice and helpful. Wi-fi available but weak.
We stayed for two nights in a chalet. it was very clean with a good supply of linens and kitchenware. Bed in loft was very squeaky - every time our son rolled over it woke us up. Otherwise it was very quiet (although it was raining so not sure what it would be like if everyone had been outside for the evening. Location is great - very close to Parlee beach AND they provide a parking pass which saved us $11 dollars a day. Would stay again but would ask they check the beds and perhaps invest in replacements where necessary.
