  • We loved our time at the Laughing Spirit Cottage! The bed was so comfy!!! So quiet! It was great to have such a cozy space with a full kitchen. For us, it was incredibly convenient for visiting family in Parksville and a great value! We will definitely be back! Thank you Charlotte & Brian!

  • We really enjoyed the special touches Brian and Charlotte put into their unit from the well equipped kitchen to the cheerful decor. We liked their ecological approach from the water-saver toilet to the compost and recycling buckets. With the dark and day blinds and the quiet neighbourhood we slept well. There was a gas station and grocery store within an easy drive, as well as good access to the scenic oceanside drive.

  • A lovely and cozy place. Filled with anything you may want if you are on vacation and away from home! Centrally located and a quick walk or jog to the famous Parksville beaches, shopping and dining. Quiet and walk-about-neighbours are very friendly. That is the Island way.

    Kathleen2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place was so cozy to stay in, you can clearly see the care that's been put into it. The location made it easy to get wherever we had planned that day as well as guaranteed parking! Charlotte and Brian were absolutely lovely hosts who were genuinely invested in making our stay comfortable.

    My place is close to parks, two town centres, restaurants and dining. It's a short drive to a lot of beautiful locations. You’ll love the suite because of the kitchenette, the light, the comfy bed, and the cosiness. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry dog friends.
    A newly renovated studio suite independent from the main house. Easy access entry. A three piece bathroom. Kitchenette with small fridge, single burner induction cook top and toaster oven. Tassimo machine, regular coffee pot and micowave. King size bed, love seat, a lounge chair, café table and stools. Electric fireplace. Acid washed concrete floor and industrial design kitchen and details. Lots of natural light from Sun Tunnels, multi windows and western exposure. Parking right in front of the suite. No steps.
    We are within walking distance of French Creek Marina/beach/pub and a short drive to 3 different golf courses. Commbs/Goats on the Roof is 10 minute drive away, and there are 4 gorgeous beaches close by. We live on a quiet road but are still close to Parksville and Qualicum. We are surrounded by big fabulous trees and there is a lovely secluded walking trail just around the corner.
  • Excellent place to stay. We've stayed several times and it has been consistently great place to stay.

  • I enjoyed a very quiet and peaceful three-night stay at Cindy's comfortable, fully-stocked suite. A kitchen with fridge, counter-top oven, heating pad, and much more, made it easy to store and prepare food, and the coffee provided was delicious! Super comfortable, King-sized bed. Shower bathroom is small but well designed and the whole suite was absolutely 'sparkling clean'. You'll need a car to get to this location and I recommend you arrive in daylight to find the house - though the street address is highly visible. You can park right in front of the door which is a bonus when it's raining!

  • We enjoyed 5 glorious nights in Sandy and Andy’s beautiful cottage. Every morning and evening was spent on the beach watching the birds, seals, sunrise and sunsets. It is close to all of the sights on the east side of the island. Sandy was very helpful, providing information about the area. The cottage had all the amenities, making our holiday very comfortable. We would try to stay hear again if we return to the island.

    Jo-Anne2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Even though the suite is attached to the house and not directly facing the ocean, it has more going for it than promoted! The property is RIGHT on the ocean -- literal steps into the water at high tide. When the tide goes out you can walk along the beach for miles and miles. Sunrises and sunsets here are spectacular and it's so central to everything the Parksville/Qualicum region has to offer. Sandy and Andy were such wonderful hosts giving us our own little beachfront seating area. Very accommodating. Truly a wonderful place to stay.

    Steve2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • I could not have asked for a better place to call home for a week. The cottage had everything you could need and the location is unbeatable. Sandy & Andy were incredible hosts with lots of info on what was going on locally during our stay. We had a very relaxing holiday and were genuinely sad to leave.

  • What a beautiful stay our family had at Sandra's Air B&B! We are rather picky folk when it comes to cleanliness and new linens and this place lived up to our standards. There was not one thing that she hasn't thought of. Some of things I appreciated were : washer & dryer with detergent and softener sheets, beach towels, bbq, private patio, games, books and lots of suggestions on things to do in the area. The location is bar none stellar. Sandra's kindness and hospitality was greatly appreciated. The cottage is located oceanside and the property has stunning landscaping. You can't go wrong with staying here!

They left some great tips for local activities and restaurants that we would never have found otherwise (like breakfast at Quality Foods) and it is very close to both Parksville and Qualicum Beach which we ended up visiting twice. We ended up wishing we had more time so we could explore even more!

  • Absolutely amazing stay! Beautiful home. Garden and outdoor space were beautiful and full of flowers and manicured garden. The indoor area was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hosts were so friendly and genuine. We felt completely welcome and comfortable in their home. They also gave us great tips and recommendations. The breakfast and coffee was to die for. Honestly the best French toast I have ever had. Way better than any restaurant. The location was also central and convenient. Overall an easy 5/5. You should stay here without hesitation!

    Lindsey2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Susan and her husband are just wonderful hosts. They even got up early for us to be able to enjoy extra early breakfast, as we had to be on the road to catch a boat in time. Anybody who loves gardening will be thrilled to see their lovely garden. This place is highly recommended! Frieder

    Friedrich2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Susan, Roelof, and Knut was wonderful. The garden was beautiful with multiple seating areas to relax, the breakfast was amazing (seriously), and the hosts were very kind and helpful with local tips. We had a great time discussing flowers and plants and for a kick out of watching the sky divers from the garden. A+++ stay and we look forward to our next visit. They are welcome in our garden anytime.

  • My wife and I are veterans of the airbnb experience and have seen some fine places and some questionable places and indeed were once "stood up" and had to stay in an hotel. Karina's home is excellent value, location, and space, and Karina is timely and very helpful. This is a 5 star spot, at the top level in our opinion.

    F William (Bill)2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Karina's place is awesome! It's a great comfortable and cozy place for a family or couple. The location is easy to find and in a great neighborhood. The garden is peaceful and beautiful!

    My place is close to Qualicum, Parksville and Rathtrevor Beaches, the Qualicum airport, shopping, but not on the beach itself. You’ll love my place because of the location, the people, and the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets). I have 3 bedrooms; 2 regular size and the third has a desk and hide a bed, what I would call a den. I will give a discount for monthly stays.
    The gardens are tended by a gardener and a yard man that keeps the plantings attractive and holds their size down to accommodate leisurely backyard strolls. It is always pleasant to sit under the birch and watch the fish in the small pond. In addition there is also a shed with deck chairs when the west coast summer permits.
    This is a quiet but friendly neighborhood. Residents walk their dogs on leash along the streets daily as the vehicular traffic consists of residents heading slowly about their business. This is a particularly quiet side street with very little outside traffic so our grand children play on the street under supervision with their scooters and other childhood devices. Guests may also enjoy the off leash dog park a short walk away, the llama farm and the goats on the roof at the Coombs General Store.
  • My wife and I stayed at Sandy's place for a full month in order to explore the area and try and find a place of our own to buy. From the start, Sandy was very responsive and helpful as we planned our stay. Check in was simple and easy and the place was very clean and nicely set up when we arrived. We enjoyed the entire the month, the area is beautiful, quiet and has amazing walks and hikes nearby. We were able to bring our dog with us and he enjoyed exploring every corner of the neighbourhood on our daily walks. The house is well set up and had everything we could need. Even in February the backyard looked great and we had a couple of days to relax on the patio and enjoy the sun. We can only imagine how nice it would be in the Spring and Summer. We can't say enough good things about this place.

    Bryan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice 3 bedroom home that is well appointed with lots of extras (dishes, appliances, robo vacuum. etc.). Good WiFi. Short drive to get to shops in Parksville. Owner is very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

    Owen2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sandy's Place was cozy, comfortable and homey. We enjoyed the comfortable beds and warmth of the fireplace. The kitchen was well stocked. Nice quiet, safe location to!

    Ashley2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, minutes to town, beaches, marina and much more... With lots of room and comfort.

    Troy2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sandy’s house is spacious and very comfortable in addition to being spotlessly clean. As a host Sandy is charming, friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is beautiful great for walks. The back yard is lovely and safe for pets. We had a great time.

    Sara2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, had all the amenities we needed and a lot more. Bonus that it was dog friendly. The neighbourhood was nice and quiet, good location. Sandy was very responsive and happy to help with any needs. Would recommend this place to others for sure!

    Melody2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • We felt immediately home in Sandy's bungalow. When we were not out exploring, we made ourselves comfy on the back patio with its peaceful outlook over a pretty garden. As we always prepare our own meals when on the road, having a well appointed kitchen was very much appreciated. Our two dogs enjoyed the well-fenced back garden with its soft grass and big patches of shade. Highlights at Sandy's were a garden full of birds and flowers and a fire engine red dragonfly that danced above the pond. We appreciated the quiet neighbourhood and local trails for evening walks with our two dogs.

  • This place was perfect for our short stay with young kids. Everything we needed, great location and excellent communication. Would recommend this place very highly.

    Charlie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This home exceeded our expectations. Set in a quiet neighbourhood with an ocean view, the house was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities we needed (including a lot of utensils that are often missing from Airbnb properties). The hosts were responsive and thorough, and the location was ideal for visiting Parksville, Qualicum and Nanaimo. There were plenty of restaurant and grocery options accessible by foot and/or short drive.

    Mark2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable spacious accommodation, convenient central location and stylish too.

    Carolyn2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The home was perfect for a family, comfortable, clean & spacious. Host was helpful and when it snowed even asked if we needed the drive way shovelled. Highly recommend Thaddeus’ place.

    Caitlin2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious, fairly kid friendly place close to everything. Check in was super easy too.

    Jo-Anne2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I enjoyed staying here so much. The value was incredible. the location is so close to the beach and downtown for a stroll or walk down for a coffee on the beach. The house was very clean and the layout was great for privacy. We had a laugh trying to find the upstairs bathroom which is very well disguised as a bedroom closet 🤣 10000% recommend this location and definitely plan on staying here again myself.

    Nicole2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Thaddeus’ beach house. The space was spotlessly clean, well organized and comfortably slept our party of 6. The decor was also very retro and cute! We loved how close it was to the beach and that you can see the ocean from the kitchen. Highly recommend!

    Kristen2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, large living space in a convenient location. Excellent accommodations for families with pets. Comfortable beds and bedding, well kept with fast responses. We will definitely be back.

  • We had a great stay at Kerry’s place. Our kids loved the big yard and short walk/bike to the beach. The place was clean and the board games were a nice bonus. We’d definitely stay here again.

  • Belle's home was perfect and above what I needed, I feel bad for only staying one night. She had all the toiletries needed for a comfortable shower. I did not want to leave the house once I got settled in. Her ginger cat is very cute. Cute place and Belle is very generous, communicative and nice

  • THE MOST AMAZING HOST YOU CAN FIND ON AIRBNB! Felt like we were going to visit our grandparents for the weekend. Most amazing down to earth, welcoming, kind, couple. Our room (lovely) was perfect, spacious, comfy and beyond clean. Sylvia and Howard invited us to join their Rummoli game night with their friends, great conversations, lots of jokes and even treats. Yay! We shared the whole night laughing away, turns out, we all share so much in common, most importantly, humor 🤪 Thank you for everything, hubby and I look forward to visiting you guys again in the warmer seasons. I would just return to be with these loving fun people and their beyond amazing hospitality.

    Jin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sylvias and Howards Home is a lovely place to stay at Vancouver Islands East-Coast. The house is in a calm area and we had a perfect sleep in the comfortable bed. The two are really nice hosts and it’s fun to chat. We would stay there again!

    Benedikt2019-09-08T00:00:00Z

  • Sylvia and her husband are great! The place is perfectly located and just minutes away from the city center (super clean and great equipment). What needs to be highlighted is the outstanding hospitality! This is what Airbnb is about! Actually this was the best Airbnb experience I‘ve ever had.

    Gereon2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • You will be greated by two delightful people, and given a quick tour around the house, and the few house rules. The sleeping and living accommodations are great, and they have an exquisite garden. They’re always up for a chat, and know a thing or two about local attractions and events. And if you’re as lucky as me, there will be a delicious homemade muffin for breakfast or to go every day.

    Waterfront home with 180 degree ocean and beach views from both floors. Lower deck half way down the bank for great views and wildlife watching. Parksville Bay has a large tidal flat; view is always changing. Eagle tree in front. House fully renovated 2 years ago and has a fresh modern layout and decor. This is the first summer we are renting it, hence no reviews. Minutes to the city center, 3.4 miles to Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. Parksville is 30 min north of Nanaimo. 5 night min.
    The house is spacious, modern and comfortable. The living room and main kitchen is on the second floor which makes for amazing views. A large covered deck off the kitchen makes of great outdoor eating rain or shine. A second deck 1/2 down the bank provides a great place for solitude and wildlife watching. Our family room has a small kitchenette with microwave, sink, bar fridge and breakfast bar. Our indoor hot tub comfortably seats 6 adults and has wonderful ocean views.
    We are steps from the beach but are still very close to downtown Parksville. Our house is on a quiet cul-de-sac. Parksville is home to two world class beaches. Here is how the City of Parksville describes our beaches (http://www.parksville.ca/cms.asp?wpID=228).... There’s a reason Parksville is known as Canada’s Riviera. Few beaches outside Mexico and the Caribbean compare with our kilometres of near perfect sandy beaches at Parksville Bay and Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. With long sunny days, water temperatures may be as high as 20°C in the shallows and the flat beaches are safe for everyone in the family, even at high tide. Beach access points are provided for the benefit of residents and the City’s many visitors. The most prominent is from the Community Park, a beachfront park of 15.7 hectares (39 acres). Other official access points are located at the ends of Doehle Street (Note: this is the access point 2 blocks from our home), Sutherland Crescent, McMillan Street and Rushton Avenue (Note: Rushton Avenue access is one lot from our house).
