Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Chris and Darcee have lived in the valley for over 17 years. We have traveled extensively and would not want to live anywhere else in the world. We live on the same 5 acre property, completely separate from the guest house. We handle all our bookings and deal with our guests directly.

Why the Owner Chose Comox:
Spectacular view. Convenient location. Total privacy. Fabulous new home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property offers the utmost privacy. Your nearest neighbors are llamas, alpacas, goats and ponies who you can talk to through the fence. We think the view is the best in the world but we are somewhat biased. Only minutes to the village of Comox and the city of Courtenay.
