We stayed in UNIT #33 and it was the perfect place for us to spend the winter. 2 miles to the heart of Parksville. Just steps to Rathtrevor Beach and Park. Our 2 bdm condo was bright, well equipped and so comfortable. A perfect “home away from home”.

It is always weird to search for accommodation on line, you can read all about it till you get there you just do not know. I am not a judge but when I am please I say so. Base on 1 visit here is my opinion. 2 nights stay off season and It was great accommodation from the point of value, lots of room for the money. The beach park is a walking distance away, hiking trail begin right in front of the propriety. The room has all the basics. Will look this resort again for sometime away from Victoria.

This was a perfect place to stay while I waited to move into my new home. Ocean Trails is located in a great location. It is close to town and a quick 3 minute walk to the beach. The staff are very friendly, prompt and courteous. The place was well taken care of and any issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Great value for your money!

♡♡♡♡♥︎♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ Our favourite place in Parksville, this is an older resort but perfect for families and quiet get-a-ways. Usually we spend the Victoria Day long weekend at Ocean Trails, sharing a condo with friends. But for this crazy COVID-year we have made #12 (a 2-bedroom unit) our summer Vancouver Island base, spending 3 weeks here. We are able to turn the kids loose to enjoy the safe beach, resort amenities and loads of other families while we teleworm and relax. I've even had a chance to finish a book and do some rock painting! Although the heated outdoor pool and hot-tub are under rennovation this month, with private beach access, tennis/pickle ball & basketball courts, communal party/barbeque area and open grassy grounds, there is no lack of things to do and all sports equipment is supplied at the office. The spacious condos and duplexes are nestled under established cedar trees and the grounds are well looked after. Spacious 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites include full kitchens and laundry facilities which are perfect for an extended stay. Low numbered suites are furthest from the beach access, but closest to the tennis courts. They are usually a bit quieter than the higher numbers which are centered around the pool area. Within a 5 minute walk there are bumper cars, mini-golf, a corner store, icecream shop and Rathtrevor park, plus bike paths to take you into town or up to Englishman River for tubing Can't recommend this place enough!
