The rates were very reasonable, and the suite was very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the hot tub and wandering the beach/grounds. The office staff was very kind. We will definitely stay here again should we venture back to the area.

There’s so much to see in the Parksville/Qualicum Beach area we’re not sure how you would ever see enough of it on just one visit! After a day out hiking, biking, touring or shopping it is very nice to come back for a soak and a leisurely trip to the beach after dinner. We hope to see you back again...

We stayed at Ocean Trails in September for two nights. The units we rented were clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The resort property was well maintained and it was very quiet at night. If it was beach front it would get a 5 but the walk down to the beach isn't bad.

Thank you for your recent stay at Ocean Trails. We had a magnificent fall in Parksville/Qualicum Beach and we're happy you got to share that with us. We do take pride in taking excellent care of our resort and grounds and we're pleased you noticed. Please do visit us again soon.

Ocean trails resort has been our MOST favourite destination stay so far. The suites are warm and welcoming. They come fully furnished with everything from a room fan, to a garlic press! All you need to bring is clothing (they provide washer and dryer in your room) and groceries. So easy. Best accommodation out there. Friendly staff, awesome pool and...

Your “favourite” destination resort – that is high praise and we thank you very much! We try and stock our suites with everything you need so you can just stay put, cook a great meal for family and friends, and just settle in. And guests are always giving us feedback if there’s something we haven’t thought of. So – please...

I found the managers very friendly and helpful. I love the property, lots of trees - it stays cool on a hot day. Convenient location and access to the beach. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The decor was very nice, and it was very spacious. Also enjoyed the pool and hot tub.

We appreciate acknowledging our management here at Ocean Trails, they like the rest of our team, love what they do and it shows. We find nature is best at cooling us down, so we love being among towering Douglas fir and multiple types of flora and fauna. We have plenty of space inside and outside our units for you to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Trails. Having a kitchen was a bonus. We had the luxury of preparing meals as well as going out. The facilities were comfortable and well maintained. The rooms were very clean. There was access to the beach that was wonderful.

We’re so happy you enjoyed yourself at Ocean Trails! Our condominiums are fully outfitted and that includes a full kitchen. Our cleaning team does a great job of keeping everything spotless and well maintained. We hope you’ll visit us again, and don’t forget to stop at the grocery store first!

Our condo was beautiful. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. The property is well managed and maintained. We would certainly revisit if in the area again. The resort is easily accessible to lots of restaurants as well.

Thank you for your recent stay with us at Ocean Trails! Our team does a great job of keeping our grounds, condominiums and amenities well maintained and we thank you for your compliment.

Great resort and beach area. The resort went smoke free shortly after we got there so will be looking for another place in 2017. It's a great beach for the kids, lots of small tidal pools, small crabs and sea dollars and lots of sand to dig,

Thank you for staying with us this past summer. The overwhelming input we received from guests was to provide a smoke free atmosphere as smoke does tend to carry from one unit to another. We do have designated smoking areas, much like many resorts that have similar conditions. We do hope you’ll come back and enjoy not only Ocean Trails,...

We certainly love to hear words like “the best of everything” used to describe what Ocean Trails has on site – thank you!

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...
