A great location and a superb suite

5 of 5
The suite is ideally located within a quiet residential area with excellent amenities. During our stay we enjoyed hiking in the surrounding countryside and visiting many local sites. We had fine and warm weather, though forest fires on the mainland and the island severely reduced visibility during the last four days of our stay. We particularly enjoyed swimming in the sea adjacent to the suite and the exceptional sea life to be found there. Coral and John have upgraded the suite since our last stay four years ago with excellent facilities and if you enjoy barbeques, as we do, an excellent bbq located on the patio. I would have no hesitation in recommending the suite to a couple looking for a extremely well appointed accommodation with excellent facilities in a quiet area of Parksville with ready access to the central part of Vancouver Island.
