About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + optional Detached Unit, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful 4 bed, 4 bath waterfront home on acreage in Courtenay. Bright and airy with 200 degree views of the ocean. Cozy fireplace and soaker tub inside, 4 person hot tub outside where you can relax and watch the eagles.

Main floor has a queen size bed, upper floor a queen bed and 2 twins, and ground floor an additional double bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom.

Located 5 minutes from shops, restaurants and the Kingfisher spa, this relaxing retreat also has a wonderful beach out front that is child friendly and perfect for a stroll. The home is within 15 minutes of several lovely golf courses.

Fishing is great right out front of the house, on many local rivers, and with local charters. Convenient location to make daytrips to Hornby or Denman Islands, and only a quick 30 minute drive to the top of Mt. Washington. Something for everyone!

About Lisa Banks

We are a family with one young child who enjoy the activities and climate of the Comox Valley.

Lisa Banks purchased this house in 2002

Why Lisa Banks chose Courtenay

We came up to Courtenay one Valentine`s day to go skiing, and the weather was so nice we decided to spend the day golfing instead, followed by shopping and a great dinner out. We skied the very next day and were so enchanted by all the amazing things we could do here year round that we decided to build our dream house here. This is where we are hoping to retire and spend our time exploring, fishing, skiing, and golfing.

What makes this house unique

Golf, fishing, spa, exploring, fossil hunting, shopping, going to farmer's markets and art galleries, skiing, hiking, whale watching, bird watching, kayaking, biking, relaxing (whew).

Perfect home for a mini family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three adult daughters and one granddaughter had our first family vacation since 2007. The house was perfect, everyone had the space they needed. We went on hikes, a Fishing Charter and l enjoyed a meal together at the end of the day. The large deck was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and looking at the eagle family that lives in the tree next door. Lovely view and very peaceful. We will definitely return in the future.

Beautiful beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! There were 4 adults and 4 kids and we had more than enough space for us all to enjoy our time. The kids loved the big yard and exploring the beach. The adults loved the deck, media room and gorgeous scenery. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Harbour Haven was the perfect home to stay in for our annual family ski trip! The house was amazing and the view was spectacular! We all had our own bedroom and bathroom. With this being our first year with our 10 month old grandson attending, this home was perfect for an infant. We loved having the use of the high chair and he was safe crawling around. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and all of the beds were very comfortable, including nice bedding. The skiing at Mount Washington was superb with 43cm of fresh powder overnight! We hope to come back next year. Thank you Kent and Lisa!

Spacious everything, beautiful all around!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (6 adults, and 3 kids ages 1-6) had an unforgettable time at Harbour Haven. We spent a lot of time in and around the property. The kids spent most of their time on the beach looking for ocean critters and walks on the pathways. My husband spent most of his time fishing for salmon on the shore...I barely saw him! (a fisherman's dream). If you love blackberries, they are everywhere! Everyone enjoyed munching on them on their way to the rocky beach.

The house is very spacious especially for our large party. My brother and sister in law had the basement to themselves...the basement felt like their own little home. The deck was large enough we could all hang out and lounge about.

We love the size of the kitchen! It never felt busy or crowded as the space was abundant.

Our large dog came along with us, and he loved the space out back (even though he spent most of it laying about). He loved the ocean when we took him for walks.

Here are some other points:

- house was kept very nice and clean

- kitchen had everything you need

- house is suited for adults of any age and kids as young as infants

- every bedroom had their own bathroom

- front area has enough room to park 9-10 vehicles if required (we only had 3)

- landscaping was beautiful

- pathways were great for nice quiet walks

- there's a public parking lot to the beach BUT it's not busy and was way off in the distance. The house still felt very private.

- it can be a fisherman's dream during the right time (my husband caught 10 pink salmon and my 6 year old caught more than a dozen flathead fish) off the shore and rocks

- saw some wildlife such as deer and rabbits

- property seems far enough from the busy towns, but close enough if you had to go to a grocery store.

We definitely will be staying at this house again!!!

Thank you so much!
