                      • 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!...moreless

                        Needing a quiet, calm, restful vacation, I am so glad I picked this property. Henri was a wonderful hostess in that she provided everything I needed, yet gave me the space to come and go as I needed. She was perfectly accomodating. The place was immaculate. The view of the gardens and the ocean and the mountains all at once - either while dining or upon waking - was beautiful. The location also, could not be better. 5 minutes (walking) to the beach or 10 minutes (walking) to town, with plenty of trails to hike along the way.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, tourists without a car, age 55+, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Thank you so much. It gives us a lot of satisfaction to know that we achieve our goal of providing our guests with exactly this kind of experience. We, in turn, really appreciate meeting wonderful people like you, hope to be able to welcome you again.

Thanks for the extras - the delectable lemon loaf and the dessert crepes. You were kind enough to share the lemon loaf recipe with me and I'll be serving it to company tomorrow.

                      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.
