Road to your Oasis: It takes a ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, West Van to Departure Bay in Nanaimo to get here. The BC ferry ride usually takes a short hour and 40 minutes. Then about 25 minute drive from Departure Bay to Tanglewood.
If you are coming from Vancouver downtown, the drive to Horseshoe Bay could take about 30-40 minutes. Give yourself ample time for the ferry. I strongly suggest for you to book reservations so you don't have to line up for the ferry. All you need is to make sure to be there at the latest 30 minutes prior to sailing time. Otherwise your reservation doesn't get carried over to next ferry time. Here's the link: (Website hidden by Airbnb)
The beach: Rathtrevor is about 2 km of beach walk and you'll see Rathtrevor Provincial Park on your left. Low tide happens quite often so your walk could be as long as you feel like it.
What else : ) Toys and game boards are available as well as 2 smart TVs! Netflix and Wifi available. Well we're hoping that you will be spending more time bonding with each other than being glued to those electronic gadgets that some of us can't live without. : ) Guilty one here too!
Wifi: Of course : ) ! Password is written on the binder on the kitchen island for you.
If there is anything else that you would need or we've missed please don't hesitate to email or text message me and we will try our best to accommodate you within our means.
Enjoy your stay!!!
Parking: 1 parking right in front of the apartment. Guest parking available just across from the owners' parking stalls. We are the last unit on the far right. Lit up stairs and walkways.
Beach access: As the road starts to slope down from where the 2 storey building is, you will be walking past a few townhouses and the access would be on your far right. It usually takes a minute or two. No public access to this.
Interaction with guests
You can always reach me via text messages, email or through the Ring doorbell/cam that we have. I am a practicing part time dentist working on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only so if you happen to message me on those days, it might take between an hour or so for me to reply. Depending on the time zone difference that we have when you're messaging me, I would be able to reply within an hour. For sure I would reply as quickly as I possibly could.
Other things to note
We charge an extra $25/person/night after 4 registered guests including kids from 1 yr old and up.
We request that you load the dishes, pots and pans and please make sure the dishwasher is running. This will really help the cleaners to stay on time for our next guests.
Thank you so much for your understanding.
Cheers and enjoy your stay!Get the full listing »
