Courtenay cottage description

Pause...Relax...Settle into your fully equipped Vacation Rental Suite at La Pause. Everything is taken care of - your only job is to relax and enjoy....

We repurposed what was originally a poolhouse to accommodate our Vacation Suite, and added an art gallery. We designed and renovated the space to create a truly outstanding vacation rental experience - La Pause Vacation Suite and Spa.

Our goal is to provide a soothing carefree environment with everything you need to relax – we’ll take care of the details, your only job is to enjoy them.

You’ll sleep peacefully in the spacious bedroom, with Queen size bed, fine linens, fireplace, large walk-in closet and ceiling fan.

See yourself stepping out your front door to enjoy the spa facilities: private 40 foot in ground heated pool, hot tub and far infrared sauna. Catch some sun on the spacious pool deck and watch eagles soar overhead…

Prepare your favorite vacation meals in the fully equipped kitchen, or use the outdoor grill. Shop for field and ocean fresh ingredients at nearby shops and farmers markets. Or dine at some of the Comox Valley’s outstanding restaurants, featuring local produce and creative flair.

Catch an on-demand movie on the HDTV, or enjoy a good read from the library; free WiFi included.

4 piece bathroom with Soaker tub and Rain Shower.

Poolside Barbecue and outdoor dining area.

Enjoy the tranquility of our forested location, just 5 minutes drive from Courtenay’s charming downtown and the nearby mountains and beaches.

Browse the Creekside Gallery, located on site - featuring West Coast themed fine art photography by David Innes.

Use La Pause as your home base to explore the delights of Vancouver Island’s Comox Valley, from challenging mountain terrain and oceanside beaches to galleries, cafes, and shopping, all located nearby in a delightful small town setting.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We both wanted to move from busy jobs to a slower pace of life, closer to nature - and we found it here in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. We love spending our time on long walks on the beaches, skiing and snowshoeing on Mount Washington, taking in the vibrant local music scene, and sampling the Valley's superb dining venues. Lucille Doucet & David Innes

                      Why the Owner Chose Courtenay:
                      Our original dream was to open a bed-and-breakfast. We searched far and wide for the perfect location – ultimately our search took us to the beautiful Comox Valley in British Columbia where we fulfilled our dreams and surpassed our expectations. During the five-year operation of our bed-and-breakfast we met many great folks from around the world. Our dreams fulfilled, we decided it was time for change and converted a garage/workshop into a beautiful one bedroom suite where our guests can pause, relax and enjoy their luxurious Vacation Suite and Spa. Lucille Doucet & David Innes

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We love the leafy green quiet and solitude of our location - yet we're only 5 minutes from Courtenay's charming downtown. Birdsong is always in the air. You can lie by the pool and watch eagles soar overhead... or stroll some of the nearby walking trails.
