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.
