              Car: Recommended

              Our location is rural, yet only a 15 minute walk from the town center and 5 minutes from the beach. We have within view, better with binoculars, of an eagles nest and guests enjoy watching them from the kitchen window while dining. Windsurfers and marine traffic can be seen from a distance on the opposite side of the same window. The golf course is also 15 minutes on foot towards the heart of Comox. Visitors to the Filberg Festival enjoy our setting and accommodation as well as the ease of walking to and from the festivities. The marina, MacDonald Woods, Northeast Woods, the Goose Spit are all very close and offer a diverse choice of walks. Fish is sold directly from the marina and we can see the shrimp boat, in season, arriving from our place. The shrimp are very reasonably priced and almost as big as prawns!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the Comox Valley and can't say enough about how fortunate we feel to live here. Comox and the Goose Spit are our favourite places to be, and lucky us, we get to live here. Henrie, an artist and avid vegetable and landscape gardener. Husband, Pat is a mariner and the inspiration for the name, Mariner's Lookout on Comox Bay. We enjoy travelling and meeting people and look forward to welcoming our guests from near and far. I am a proud member of the Comox Rotary Club.

              Why the Owner Chose Comox:
              This location has been our home for 17 years and we've always wanted to build a guest home and gallery. Because we love living here, we felt that others would appreciate vacationing here. We began construction of the second building 4 years ago with the help of a contractor. Henrie took on the project after the drywall stage and did the finishing painting, carpentry, tiling, stairs, flooring (with hubby's help), etc. It was a challenge and we are very pleased with the results.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The mountains, the Comox Bay, the Goose Spit and the garden make this location ideal for relaxation, winter or summer. The lounge chairs and picnic table are stategically located to take advantage of the garden and the view. The view also entices you to take advantage of the proximity to all that the Comox Valley has to offer. The beach is down the hill from our driveway, the ski hill is close by, golfing is only 15 minutes away on foot and next door to the shopping mall. Our guests often walk from Mariner's Lookout to, and from, some of the best restaurants in the Comox Valley. Trails from here lead to forests, the beaches, and the Filberg Park, location of a renown arts and music festival. We are also close to a bus stop serviced by the valley's public transit system. Deer, racoons, many birds (including quail, eagles, hawks and pheasants) are seen regularly from the suites picture windows. An eagle's nest is visible with binoculars from the kitchen eating area.
