My wife and I spent a wonderful week in this unit!
It's truly waterfront with beautiful views of the ocean and beach.
We would love to return and rent this condo again!
Tanglewood #3 is a wonderful place to stay for a vacation with friends. There were six of us, and nobody died. But most importantly the space is large and not cramped at all. One of the greatest things about this location was having the beach as our back yard. [YEEEH] Being able to have access to the beach 24/7 was definitely a plus. Whether it was watching the sunrise, going for a stroll along the beach, making sand castles, or just gazing over the ocean from the balcony, the beach was always there for us.[like a good friend who will answer your calls at 2am in the morning]
The interior of the house was clean and comfortable. The interior decoration was quite aesthetically pleasing. The house also has built in surround sound which is perfect for watching movies on the hdmi compatible TV in the living room area. Though this might be irrelevant for some people, we found the wifi quite good as well. There were six of us using it at once on 5 phones, 2 ipads, and 2 laptops and it still held up.
Though we were unable to see stars due to the clouds, we saw the potential in the upper balcony to be a wonderful stargazing location. Did i mention there are two decks? THERE ARE TWO DECKS, and one of them has a easy to operate barbecue on it whilst the upper deck has a table with a parasol and chairs so eating outside on the upper deck is not only viable, but encouraged so you can soak in the view and enjoy time with the people you care about at the same time. [PRO TIP: you have to force the handle past the resistance to open the door to the upper deck]
One of the few flaws this location has, is that it's perfect and we have to leave. But seriously the sound of the ice maker in the refrigerator is the SPOOKIEST THING in the middle of the night.
The location of the resort itself is also one of the great things that Tanglewood has to offer. Minigolf is a walking distance away. As previously stated, the beach is right there. It is quite close to many sight seeing locations such as Coombs, Englishmen River Falls, Nanaimo and Cathedral Grove. Unfortunlately we were unable to go to hornlake caves this year due to our unpreparedness for the equipment required. But if that is something you are interested in checking out, remember to pack proper shoes and jackets.
Long story short: This is place is great. 10/10 would stay again

Since year 2000, we've stayed at this lovely home many times and have been extremely impressed on each visit by the spectacular setting, the well-appointed condominium and the close proximity to numerous interesting activities. The condo is just a few minutes drive away from the mini-golf course, wonderful hiking trails and neighbouring spas. We enjoyed a variety of activities for all different age groups - cycling around Nanoose Bay, beach combing and skim-boarding at Rathtrevor, wading through the refreshingly clear water at Englishman River Falls and Little Qualicum Falls, enjoying heaping ice cream cones at Coomb's Country Market, and hiking up Nob Hill for glorious views. The condo was also recently refreshed with new paint and furniture. It was another memorable vacation and we can hardly wait until our next stay!
