Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: After working several years as a 911 Operator and Dispatcher with the RCMP, I have decided to focus my attention on my vacation rentals, traveling, and improving my foreign language skills. I love meeting people from around the world and enjoy the opportunity to learn a new language. I currently speak (beginner) Italian and Japanese. I am passionate about ballroom and latin dancing here in the Comox Valley. My lovable black lab keeps me motivated to swim at the beach, hike the woods and our favourite past time, snow shoe on Mount Washington.
Why the Owner Chose Comox, BC, Canada:
The Perch on Birch is located on one of my favourite avenues in Comox. With the Comox Golf Course at the end of the road leading to a lovely pathway and the many fauna that make Birch Ave their home, it is somewhat of a haven. I have always made a point of passing by this property on my walks since 2003, each time thinking it would make a great rental property. When the property came up for sale in 2011, I did not hesitate to purchase it. After much hard work, my dream to turn two of the units into beautiful vacation rentals was realized. The gardens are now looking beautiful as I continue to transform this once neglected property into a lovely Comox gem.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Although Comox Vallley is not a large city, it boasts some of the finest restaurants offering many delicious cuisines. Having several of these restaurants in walking distance makes for a wonderful outing while staying at The Perch on Birch. The Comox Airforce Base is used by the famous Snowbirds every April. Some of their incredible patterns can be viewed right from the rental property. This is the perfect place to stay during Vancouver Island Music Festival held every July as you are steps away from the bus stop and a few minutes drive to the shuttle bus parking lot. The annual Filberg Festival and Comox Nautical Days held every August long weekend (BC Day) are just a few blocks away. This makes it ideal for guests to enjoy the festivities in a carefree manner without the hassle of parking a vehicle.
