We have had two wonderful week-long summer adventures at Ocean Trails - and it is the place that all 7 of my grandchildren voted on to go back to! You have a cozy well equipped place to stay - the beach at your doorstep and the joys of an outdoor pool to spend time when not at the beach! It...

We certainly love to hear words like “the best of everything” used to describe what Ocean Trails has on site – thank you! There just isn’t the room for a family to spend quality time together at some resort types, and we’re proud to offer a place where families can meet, have their own space, but also common space to...

This is our second home. It is safe, clean, and excellent for children. Family focussed. Our children love the pool and the easy access to the beach. We enjoy how well equipped the suites are and the effective use of space.

It’s quite a compliment to be referred to as a family’s second home. It’s the atmosphere we try to create here at Ocean Trails: a place where you feel comfortable, relaxed, and safe with all the comforts of home (and maybe even a few more). We have space inside and out to pretty much cover any family activity, so please...

Generally the resort was good and suited our family needs very well. We were disappointed to have an upper suite despite having booked 9 months in advance. This meant lots of trips up and down stairs to get everything into the condo. With knee issues, this was not easy for us. Also, the resort MUST warn vacationers who bring their...

Thank you for your recent stay at Ocean Trails – we do appreciate your business! Ocean Trails, like any resort, cannot guarantee which unit a guest will receive, only the room type that they requested, and we did our absolute best to accommodate your requests when you were here. If there is ever anything wrong with the suite you can...

Ocean Trails is a lovely place to spend a week with a family with elementary aged school children. It has a small pool that is a maximum of about 4 feet deep, a hot tub and a trail to the beautiful expansive beach which takes under 5 minutes.

We are an excellent choice for families and groups of all sizes, and for one simple word: space. We have lots of space to play outdoor games, run around, or maybe just gather everyone together for relaxing dinner. Our condos are set for whatever size family you have and you’ve already mentioned two of the many outdoor amenities to enjoy....

Rooms in A quality with well kept grounds. Swimming pool and hot tub excellent. Ocean trails staff go out of their way to make your stay a great experience. Walk to Craig Bay access long stair way to sandy beach great for children and adults.

We love what we do and it shows. Ultimately our business is about sharing. Sharing our beautiful piece of Vancouver Island, sharing our comfortable and spacious accommodation, sharing our amenities and sharing what a superb time can be had where when all of those attributes come together. We do hope you’ll come and visit us again.

We enjoyed our 8 day stay. We had not been to the island for many years and we wanted our young teenagers to enjoy it. Our 2 bedroom was perfect, one queen and 2 single beds. The decor in #7 was modern and very well maintained. We enjoyed day trips to: Little Qualicum Falls/Cathedral Grove/Port Albernie; Bucharts Garden/Victoria (long day);...

Central Vancouver Island is an excellent spot to do some island hopping. It’s true, we have a very large island – much larger than many US states. But you couldn’t’ be better positioned to do some of the fantastic out trips you and your family took part in – our hats off to you! We’re pleased you made Ocean Trails...

We found the setting and unit we stayed in very pleasant, clean, comfortable, good location, short walk to the nice pool, and a little further to the awesome beach. We had a 2 bedroom with a pullout bed in the living room, unfortunately the skylight in that room made it a little difficult to sleep from sunup.

We’re happy your stay with us was pleasant. Our suites definitely have space for a lot of people and we’re glad you made the best use of that space. In the winter things can get rather gloomy at times, so the skylights have been a great benefit for guests looking for a little extra sunlight. We hope to see you...

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Trails Resort, weather was great, beach was beautiful, digs were very comfortable. We would have appreciated a smaller frying pan, lets face it, cooking for three we didn't need a 12`` pan no matter what we were enjoying.

As they say: the west coast is absolutely beautiful and when the sun is shining it’s paradise! When you can go out to some place like Coombs and bring home some delicious treasures to make a family feast, those are special moments. We appreciate your feedback on the frying pan sizes. Please do come and see us again soon.

This was our first time in Parksville, and our week at Ocean Trails has us looking forward to a return some day. We were given a spacious two-bedroom unit with full kitchen. Our unit is privately owned (as perhaps all are) with reservations managed through the central Ocean Trails office. Our unit was near the office end of the resort,...
