Everyone was quite friendly.

Property ( ##41 Tanglewood Beach Homes ~ Parksville BC#450206

 

Absolutely outstanding. Beyond our expectations. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Kitchen was very well equipped and lovely to work in. Loved the patio & wonderful BBQ. The condo was immaculately kept and squeaky clean. Easy to keep clean while we were staying there as well. We loved the area, the beach, the park, all the towns we drove to and explored. Lots of places to eat. We wish we had bikes or access to bikes. That would have been fun. But without we walked miles on the amazing beach and through the forest. Listened to good music, enjoyed great food and wine that we prepared in the beautiful kitchen. Really enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. We hope to return one day soon. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely beach home.
