Home away from home

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 15, 2019
Third time that I've stayed at this sit. Cottages are very clean and well stocked with everything but food. Beds are comfortable, updated appliances, two bathrooms and a t.v. in all bedrooms. The deck has a patio set and barbeque. The recreation center was a short distance and has a swimming pool, hot tub and exercise equipment. There is also a small shopping area, beauty salon and spa.
Location is perfect. Quiet, but easily accessible to Parksville and Qualicum Beach. good value for your money. Comfortably accommodates four to six people.
Date of stay: September 2019
Room Tip: rent a car to get around

Front desk staff were great. The resort and cottages themselves were very nice. Layout of the place we stayed was great. Our kids enjoyed not having to share a room since we had the loft. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, supplies, etc. Nice quiet area and mini golf next door to the resort was a bonus. Our reservation had been screwed up (through no fault of the resort) so we didn’t end up staying as long as we had hoped but the staff was great in finding us alternate accommodations for the remainder of our trip. The back deck was nice and we probably would have got some use out of it if we had stayed longer.

The only negative comments would be that we wish the pool was a little deeper, and the area around the pool was very slippery, maybe because it was the end of the day when we went.

We definitely would stay here again!

This was our first time staying at Oceanside Resort, and overall it was a great stay and a perfect place for families. When we were booking a place to stay in Parksville I kept looking at all the waterfront resorts, but my wife really wanted to book the Oceanside village resort. I was sceptical but after our stay I am glad we stayed here. All the units are individual cottages and have tons of room. We stayed in a dogwood unit and would stay in it agin. Having 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms is perfect for families. The resort is not beachfront, but Rathtrevor beach is 10 min walk away or a 2 min drive. The resort is well taken care off and and it shows. Everything is well landscaped and amenities were always clean and looking great.

The units are individually owned so decor can vary between the units. The bed in one of the rooms was very soft, my daughter liked it. We preferred the bed in the loft it was much more comfortable.

My only comment would be, we stayed 4 nights and it would have been nice to have the in room coffee and dishwasher pods match to the number of nights booked. We only received 2 dishwashing pods and 2 packages of coffee for the stay. The front desk was able to give us a 3rd dishwasher pod when asked, which was appreciated.

Overall was very satisfied with stay, will be booking another stay here for next summer.

I travel to Parksville regularly to visit my elderly mom who lives in a nursing home in Parksville and stay at Oceanside Resort most often. The cottages are decorated with designer touches nestled in the pines, close to Rathtrevor Park, miniature golf with all the comforts of home. I've stayed alone, with my family and hosted family reunions. It is my "home away from home". I love the service and care the staff give to accomodate my needs (they offer wheelchair ramps and accessible cottages) and have gone out of their way to accomodate my needs. I highly recommend.

Room tip: Cottages closest to Resort Drive are the most quiet.

We stayed for two nights with our small shih tzu and to be honest we didn't want to leave. The cabin was spotless and so inviting and coxy. The decor was beautiful. The back deck was a relaxing spot to sit in the evening while we let our pup roam the back yard on a long rope. The beds were very comfy. After long days of hiking trails it was so nice to retreat to our cabin. We will definitely be returning!

Room tip: Get a cabin that doesn't back onto the road.
