Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I returned to my hometown of Courtenay from Victoria to be be near my large extended family and to enjoy a lifestyle which includes outdoor living - gardening, biking, swimming in the rivers & ocean as well as entertaining and relaxing in our porch and gardens. I am passionate about Latin, Ballroom and Salsa dancing with my husband and our wonderful dance community. We have travelled in Europe and throughout Mexico with fantastic bookings at other vrbo properties. It is my great pleasure to host guests from all over Canada and the world at my two properties in Courtenay, blueberry cottage & chocolate cottage - Vacation Rentals By Owner.

Why the Owner Chose Courtenay:
blueberry cottage is in the quiet Old Orchard neighbourhood of Courtenay, in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. Located walking distance to Downtown, the Puntledge River, Lewis Park The Riverway Trail and a short drive to beaches. A 30 minute drive takes you up to Mt. Washington skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and hiking. chocolate cottage is located on a leafy lane, also near downtown Courtenay, just a 10 minute walk to blueberry cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is not necessary to have a car as both blueberry cottage & chocolate cottage are located close to Downtown Courtenay and walking trails. Our recommended restaurants...The Atlas Cafe, Union Street Grill, The Mad Chef, Locals and Martines. Downtown pubs are Gladstone Brewery and Billy D's and we love Georgia Straight Jazz nights on Thursdays at The Avalanche.

Our fabulous Farmer's Market is located in The Native Sons Hall all winter and April through October at the Fairgrounds on Headquarters Road. For coffee and light meals we like The Hub, Zocalo's, Mud Sharks, Rhodos and The Broken Spoke - where they also rent and repair bikes. Shop at some of our favourite places in Downtown Courtenay - Laughing Oyster and Second Page Bookstores and The Tea Shop. For clothing shop for Canadian Designers at BE, Robert A, Sublime Fashions, Cherry Wine, Sublime, Secret Drawers Lingerie and Jim's Clothes Closet for the guys.
