Choose Rathtrevor Beach Haven for your next vacation and look forward to returning home with some very special memories! We are situated in the privately owned Tanglewood complex, right on fabulous Rathtrevor Beach, in the heart of the international tourist and golf destination of Oceanside, at Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Vancouver Island, particularly the Rathtrevor/Oceanside area, is noted for it's spectacular natural beauty, temperate climate and wide range of outdoor activities including outstanding golf courses and deep sea fishing.Fantastic location.....Mere footsteps to the beach. Our particular unit has a very unique location with features that few others in the area can rival. Bordered by ocean and forest, we have a remarkably tranquil, private setting. Rathtrevor Beach is renowned for it's magnificent beauty, miles of soft sand and safe, warm, ocean swimming. Couple that with being nestled beside the enchanting old growth forest of Rathtrevor Provincial Park, with it's miles of hiking and biking trails meandering along the ocean and through the forest..... And you have a winning combination for a fantastic getaway.The best of both worlds... The beauty of staying at our Beach Haven is that you have all the advantages of being in the heart of an international tourist destination while still feeling miles away from anywhere in this peaceful, secluded setting where you can watch the deer and rabbits feed at the water's edge, right outside your window. You are less than a 5 minute drive to Parksville and 20 minutes to Nanaimo, approximate population 10,000 and 100,000 respectively. Fantastic day-trips... Within an approximate two hour scenic drive in any direction, visit the charming capital city of Victoria to the south, stopping in at Chemainus, famous for it's murals and Duncan, the "City of Totems", go north to the beautiful Comox Valley and smaller islands of Denman and Hornby or head to the wild and rugged West Coast with the world famous Long Beach and it's quaint fishing villages of Tofino and Ucuelet. Simply relax... A great alternative is to spend your days relaxing on the fantastic beach or exploring the neighbouring provincial park, on foot or by bicycle. Take in the beauty of Rathtrevor, with the ocean set against the stunning backdrop of snow-capped coastal mountains, while Eagle's soar and Blue Herons feed. At the day's end, decide whether to fire up the barbeque and dine in on our private roof deck, picnic in the park or enjoy one of the many restaurants in the area. After dinner, choose to either take an evening stroll on the beach or seawall, relax by the fireplace, have a beach fire, watch for Alaskan cruise ships sailing past, experience one of many local entertainment options or simply stargaze. A home away from home... As many of our guests have remarked, our Beach Haven is all that they anticipated and more.

What a lovely location - secluded but minutes from every convenience we needed. The home was well set-up and a perfect place to take small children. The view was our favorite. Certainly a place we would visit again!

My husband and I, along wiht our 2 small boys and my parents spent a week enjoying beachside living. Just steps to the water and one of the most amazing Provincial parks, we were able to enjoy beautiful views, sunrises and wildlife.
The 3 bedroom condo was wonderfully appointed with everything we could need and a little bit more.
The reservation and payment process were done online and it was very easy. Then Joyce emailed all the checkin information and the arrival was easy peasy.
I would recommend this unit to any family or group of friends.
