About the owner: After growing up at this beach house, I now live 10 minutes north. We love to spend time here year-round, and especially have fun with the swim float in summer. Renting the house to select vacationers helps pay the taxes and still enjoy our own getaways here.
I have taken several years to paint, replace appliances and fixtures, and fill the house with everything you need for a cozy getaway. You will find comfortable furniture (I have a sturdy coffee table in the living room chosen specifically to allow you to put your feet up), very comfortable beds, ketchup and mustard in the frig, a well-stocked spice rack, several kinds of vinegar, an unbreakable garlic press, cheese grater, salad spinner, knife sharpener, Thermos (2), roasting pan, assorted teas, and even a share cupboard with birthday candles, extra cutlery, etc.
Why the Owner Chose Comox: Unlimited opportunities for wildlife watching, kayaking, walking, cycling and running trails, relaxation and quiet reading. Easy access to excellent dining, two spas, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, several golf courses, local galleries and museums.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Guests in summer 2013 called the living room window 'our 10-foot-wide TV' as there was constant wildlife activity.
Old pilings in the intertidal zone are a magnet for all kinds of birds, especially cormorants drying their wings in winter, and a growing colony of purple martins in summer.
Two eagles, Helen and Harry, sit in their favorite perches on the property while watching over their domain.
There is a public boat launch about 3 minutes south.
The (seasonal) swim float is a great summer destination! The surface is rubber playroom flooring, and the ladder allows you to climb aboard easily.
