Usually when you go on vacation you have to rush through a year’s worth of relaxation in just one or two weeks, but sometimes you just need to get away for longer.
Whether you want to unwind and relax in an entirely different way, you’re thinking of moving to the Parksville area and want to give it a test run first, you’re looking for an inspiring place to finish the book you’re writing, or because you hate snow… and -20°C… and winter in general (we don’t blame you!), Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort is the perfect place to settle in and stay for awhile.
Located on the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island boasts Canada’s mildest climate. Even in the heart of winter, rarely does the temperature fall below 0 °C (32 °F).
Parksville specifically enjoys a Mediterranean-like dryness due to the rain shadow effect from Mount Arrowsmith and is know as “Canada’s Riviera”. It rains more in Puerto Vallarta (1,392 mm annually) than in Parksville (1,126 mm). Travel and Leisure Magazine and MSN Travel Editors have rated Parksville one of the world’s top ten island destinations. And Better Homes and Gardens rated the area Canada’s Best Family Friendly Beach Destination.
If you are looking to stay in Canada over the winter and avoid the strong US dollar or Euro, Parksville is an appealing destination.
Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort overlooking Parksville’s renowned Rathtrevor Beach offers modern and spacious long stay vacation rentals, making for an ideal home base to explore Vancouver Island. Qualicum Beach, Parksville and the surrounding area offer an incredible array of activities for long term snowbirds.
With 19 km of sandy beaches to stroll, this is Canada’s beach playground. The region has 20 parks, 5 PGA calibre golf courses, waterfalls, rivers, and lakes. You’ll see centuries-old trees and local wildlife, all just minutes from town. Ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon!
