Comox-Strathcona I Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

'The Lighthouse' invites you to the perfect 'get-away' for one, two, or three families wishing to holiday together. This luxurious, southwest-facing, 5000 square foot, executive home, with all new furnishings, overlooks the ocean with a spectacular 180-degree view of Georgia Strait and the Vancouver Island Mountains from the decks and every room.

Strategically situated on 2.2 acres, the house comes complete with a heated 18' x 36' kidney-shaped therapeutic salt-water pool. A SPA experience in which you can detoxify - relieve aches & pains and reduce stress as well in our therapeutic 'infrared sauna'. There are decks and patios leading from every door. Decks have been 'safe-guarded' with wire mesh and gates for the protection of small children. Wireless High Speed Internet available also Shaw Direct Satellite with 4 receivers.

Walking distance to 'Hollyhock'.

Relax around the pool or pick sand dollars, dig clams, gather oysters, go fishing, or just sunbathe on the beautiful white sandy beaches of Smelt Bay - just a two minute drive away; and don't forget to bring your camera for those magnificent, unforgettable sunsets. Large cedar decks surround three sides of the house with lots of outdoor furniture. The back of the house has a spacious Courtyard with hanging vines, a fountain, fish pond and lots of patio furniture - great for cool dining when the sun is at its peak.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view was spectacular. The weather was perfect and the company excellent. We enjoyed our stay at "The Lighthouse"tremendously (especially the pool!). We will miss the clean air & beautiful scenery on Cortes. Many thanks! We hope to come back!

We had a three generation family gathering (ages 4 to 75) at the Lighthouse and it was fantastic. The house easily accommodates 14. The pool was fantastic. The house and kitchen are well outfitted with everything you need. The nearby sandy lake and rocky seashore are perfect play spots. Hollyhock is a walk away and the gardens there are worth the visit. We had a great time and are recommending it to friends for their large gatherings.

AWESOME PLACE FOR A VACATION!! Never a dull moment!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 14 including 5 children from age 3 - 17. The Lighthouse fit the bill perfectly for us.... it's as though it was made for our family. The home is huge, clean and comfortable. There was something there for everyone! The pool was the biggest hit of all, not to mention the pool table, the 2 acres of lawn space for us to set up our badminton & croquet championships, the absolutely amazing ocean views, the eagles soaring, the great walk to the beach at Smelt Bay and the list goes on and on.

The owners, Dennis & Eleanor were wonderful.... very helpful and want to ensure you have an awesome vacation in their home! Thanks so much Dennis & Eleanor!!

We would definitely go back and highly recommend it to anyone who wants the best vacation ever!

i cannot WAIT to come back here!!! This place is fabulous! From the white sand in Smelt Bay to the salt water therapeutic pool built into the deck. It's a perfect vacation home. Tons of space and view worth a million bucks.

A good time was had by all on our annual summer family vacation spent this year at the Lighthouse. A beautiful and private setting with a view of the ocean......which was close enough that we could hear the tide coming in and feel the ocean breezes through the windows at night. The weather was perfect and the sunsets were stunning. The house was perfect for our group of 12...very comfortable, clean and well furnished. The pool was a highlight and the scene of several serious water fights. The young people enjoyed kayaking from Manson's Landing also the site of abundant oysters to pick and clams to dig.

Property is big and organized but a little tired. Bedding was pilled and in much need of replacement and the master bedding was wet our first night. The cutlery and many of the kitchen tools were old and dirty. House full of bedrooms and bathrooms. 1 master with a king, 4 bedrooms with queens (2 are private and the other 2 are open concept), 1 room with two twins, a loft with three twins (skylights but no windows that open so very hot and stuffy), and there is a twin in the hallway in the basement. Pool is small and high maintenance, has to be covered every night and someone comes early every morning to clean it and bangs around for an hour. Sauna is a little 2 person portable. Master bedroom does not have curtains and opens onto shared deck. A skylight over the master bed is pretty at night and very bright when the sun comes up. Nice views but property is not on the water and there is no trail to the beach. Only access is by road and its a hilly kilometre walk or drive. Great trails in the area for walking and biking and nice shops and markets. Would go back to Cortes, but would seek alternate place to stay unless need to accommodate a large group.

Beautiful and Spacious for our reunion of 13!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at The Lighthouse with 6 adults and 7 children (4-13) for a family reunion. We were so pleased upon our arrival to find a house with lots of space for all of us. We enjoyed having the 'adult' deck overlooking the pool along with the lovely shaded garden patio for evening dinners. Lots of beds and bedrooms to have our own places too. We spent most of our time at the house with the occasional drive down to beach at smelt bay and Manson's Lagoon. The spacious house and yard left us with lots of adult time while the kids ran around in their little pack. Came back relaxed and renewed with great memories to last a lifetime. The kids are already asking when we will return to the 'Big House'. Definitely a 2 thumbs up from us!
