Cottage Living

Oceanside Village Resort is close to the renowned beaches of Parksville and to all the amenities of the town.

Just 25 minutes’ drive north of the BC Ferry terminal in Nanaimo, Oceanside Village Resort in Parksville on Vancouver Island combines the misty nostalgia for beachside summer vacations with high-quality cottages and an unbeatable location. Developed, designed, and built on site by a team of Parksville architects and craftsmen and located adjacent to Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, this is now in the final stages of sales, with only 15 out of 140 cottages left for occupancy.

Spokesman Rob Hill says, “We started Oceanside Village Resort five years ago and successfully weathered the recession, which affected recreational property sales throughout the rest of the province. With a starting price of just $244,900, these homes offer high value due to their location, quality, and the fact that you can derive additional income when you’re not using your cottage by renting it out.”

Parksville is a quaint, friendly, full-service town that bustles with activity during the busy summer months and is pretty quiet for the rest of the year. Major Island destinations like Victoria lie 90 minutes to the south, while it’s about the same distance to the ski slopes of Mount Washington and Strathcona Provincial Park to the north. Other Island gems like Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park and the Chemainus/Lake Cowichan area are an easy day-trip away.

Oceanside Village Resort offers three different home styles, with each cottage featuring large windows, vaulted ceilings, and an open floor plan that creates an airy, casual ambience. Cosy carpeting in the bedrooms, stylish wood-toned laminate flooring in the living room, ceramic tile in the bathroom and kitchen are durable and easy to maintain. Each cottage comes with a full range of quality appliances, with an electric fireplace to provide warmth during cooler winter months. The kitchen is large enough for hosting holiday dinners; front and back patios allow you and your guests to enjoy the morning sun on one deck and the afternoon sun on the other.

The activities and lifestyle families will enjoy here, however, will far surpass the cottage’s investment value. Priceless memories such as beachcombing for sea shells at low tide, building sandcastles, swimming in the on-site pool, meeting new friends, sharing communal meals, hosting family members, and becoming part of the Oceanside Village Resort community is a rare gem of an experience, indeed.
