Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I returned to my hometown of Courtenay from Victoria to be near my large extended family and to enjoy a simpler lifestyle which includes gardening, biking, rafting on the Puntledge River and spending time relaxing in our porch and gardens. I am passionate about dancing including Latin, Ballroom, Swing and Salsa with my husband and wonderful network of dance friends. Favorite places we travel are Vancouver Island, Europe and Mexico where we have enjoyed great stays at VRBO properties. It's a pleasure to host guests from Canada and all over the world at blueberry cottage and chocolate cottage, our two private Vacation Rentals By Owner in Courtenay.

Why the Owner Chose Courtenay:
The location is so private and peaceful, yet so convenient to downtown Courtenay's vibrant shopping and dining. Just a short walk to parks and the Riverway Trail on the stunning Comox Estuary. Close to golfing, kayaking, swimming and boating and just a 30 minute drive to Mt. Washington Alpine Resort for skiing, snowshoeing & hiking. This cozy one level home (handicap accessible) has a private garden, fenced deck, lounge chairs and BBQ. Decorated with an eye to detail in shades of chocolate, red and mango, with a mix of vintage and modern furnishings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our recommended restaurants...The Atlas Cafe (breakfast, lunch, dinner!), Yiamas Greek, Mad Chef, Locals at The Old House, Martines, Black Fin, Rhodos - and there are lots more! For groceries it's a short drive or a 10 minute walk to Edible Island Health Food Store, Thrifty Foods, Runge's European Deli, The Butcher's Block for local meats, cheese & eggs and to Hot Chocolates & Cakebread Bakery (& Gelato!). Superstore, Quality Foods and Costco are all within a 10 minute drive. For the best selection of fresh local seafood take the stunning Comox Estuary drive to Portuguese Joe's on Comox Road. Don't miss our fabulous Saturday Farmers Market on Headquarters Rd and from Oct-Apr and at The Native Sons Hall on Cliff Ave (just down the street from blueberry cottage!) NEW - The Farmer's Market is now also available Downtown on Wednesday mornings in the Summer months. Coffee shops we recommend in Courtenay are Mud Sharks, Rhodos, Zocola (live music in the evenings) and in Comox The Rocky Mountain Cafe. Shop at some of our favourite places...The Tea Shop, Laughing Oyster and Second Page Bookstores. For fashions Robert A, Sublime Fashions, Secret Drawers, Maidas, BE (Canadian designers) Red Carpet Consignment and for men Jim's Clothes Closet. For Home Decor there is so much to choose from Downtown - Tab Imports, Rattan Plus, FD Design and Uranus. Find Antiques & Vintage style home decor at Red Living or Courtenay Antiques, Purely Flower Boutique and in Comox at Red Carpet Antiques & Collectables and Consignment Clothing on the corner of Anderton Ave & Comox Rd.
