Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I returned to my hometown of Courtenay from Victoria to be be near my large extended family and to enjoy a lifestyle which includes outdoor living - gardening, biking, swimming in the rivers & ocean as well as entertaining and relaxing in our porch and gardens. I am passionate about Latin, Ballroom and Salsa dancing with my husband and our wonderful dance community. We have travelled in Europe and throughout Mexico with fantastic bookings at other VRBO properties. It is our great pleasure to host guests from all over Canada and the world in Courtenay at blueberry cottage - Vacation Rentals By Owner.

Why the Owner Chose Courtenay, BC, Canada:
blueberry cottage is located in the quiet Old Orchard neighbourhood of Courtenay, in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. Located walking distance to Downtown, the Puntledge River, Lewis Park, the fabulous Riverway Trail along the Courtenay River and Comox Estuary and a short drive to beaches. The 30 minute paved road takes you up to Mt. Washington Alpine Resort for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, mountain biking and hiking at Paradise Meadows. It is possible to be without a car at blueberry cottage as it is located just 2 blocks to Downtown Courtenay and walking trails and a block from the The Broken Spoke for bike rental and repairs.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our recommended restaurants...The Atlas Cafe, Union Street Grill, The Mad Chef, Locals and Martines. Downtown pubs to try are Gladstone Brewery, Cornerstone and Billy D's. We love Georgia Straight Jazz nights on Thursdays at The Avalanche. For groceries it's a short walk to Edible Island Health Food Store, Thrifty's Foods, Runge's European Deli, The Butcher's Block for local meats, deli & eggs and for sweets Hot Chocolates & Cakebread Bakery (& Gelato!). Superstore, Quality Foods, Costco and Driftwood Mall are all within 10 minute drive. For fresh local seafood from Portuguese Joe's take the stunning Comox Estuary drive on the route to Comox. For coffee and light meals we like The Hub, Zocalo's, Mud Sharks, Rhodos Our fabulous Saturday Farmer's Market is located in The Native Sons Hall all winter and from April through October at the Fairgrounds on Headquarters Road. During summer the Market is also Downtown on Wednesdays. There are several wineries to explore in the surrounding areas including Coastal Black, Blue Moon and 40 Knots. Shop at some of our favourite places in Downtown Courtenay - Laughing Oyster and Second Page Bookstores and The Tea Shop. Women's fashion favourites are Cherry Wine, and BE (Canadian Designers) and for lingerie Secret Drawers. There are now two great menswear shops downtown - Jim's Clothes Closet and Walker 24. Graham's Jewellers have been located by the big clock for decades and Impeccable Jewelry has opened. For home decor shop Tab Imports, Rattan Plus, Red Living and Home & Garden Gate. Consignment Clothing, Antique & Vintage treasures can be found at Red Carpet Antique & Collectable Mini Mall on Comox Ave, Red Living on 5th and Courtenay Antiques on 4th Street. Visit the Comox Valley Art Gallery and Gift Shop next to our beautiful Library and the Paeleantolgy Museum in the old brick post office. There is a great waterpark, playground and pool for the kids at Lewis Park Recreation Centre just a 10 minutes walk.
