"This was our third year back and it's always an incredible stay. The open nana doors, ocean views and spa like shower are so luxurious. It's a gorgeous home and we are already looking forward to next year."

"There is a reason this listing has 5 stars across the board. This basement suite had everything we needed for our 3 night stay and the added bonus was the location and the gorgeous ocean and mountain views from your very own private deck. Also, the backyard garden is stunning as well and very relaxing. And if you just take a 2 minute stroll down the street the ocean view will leave you breathless! The suite was very clean, comfortable and quiet! Sheila was wonderful to deal with and there was a great sense of pride in ownership with this unit. I don't have a negative thing to say about the place and we can be a little picky. Thanks so much for everything Sheila! We would definitely stay here again and recommend this listing."

"We decided on a short getaway and this place was a great choice. Quiet location and a good home base. Was there with my wife and daughter and my daughter commented on the "calm and quiet energy". Good communication with Jason and very welcoming when we arrived. We plan on coming back!"

"We enjoyed our two week stay in this well cared for older home. The charming cottage is located within walking distance to downtown Courtenay's amenities including shops, cafes and groceries. Situated in a pleasantly landscaped yard, screened by hedges for privacy, we enjoyed the quiet location. The spacious interior has ample room and adequate cookware to prepare meals, bake a cake or entertain guests. All the appliances work well and the bathroom's clawfoot tub is wonderful for relaxing after a busy day of sight seeing. It's a bonus to have laundry on premises. We have been traveling for 15 months, so appreciated the space to spread out awhile. Maureen is always helpful and concerned about her guests comfort. When the temperature dropped below freezing she called to make certain we were staying warm enough. For convenience to downtown Courtenay and local Farmer's Market, this is hard to beat. We highly recommend you give it a try when visiting in the area. If it's not available, we also have experienced the Chocolate Cottage and it is equally wonderful, just smaller."
