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.

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. A 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. It is just a few blocks walk to local bus stops.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Recommended restaurants...Atlas Cafe, Union Street Grill, Mad Chef, Locals & Martines. Downtown pubs...Gladstone Brewery & Cornerstone. I can recommend dance venues and we love Georgia Straight Jazz Society on Thursdays nights at The Avalanche. For groceries it's a short walk to Edible Island Health Foods, Thrifty's, Runge's European Deli, 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, Mud Sharks & Rhodos. Our fabulous Saturday Farmer's Market is located in The Native Sons Hall all winter and from April through mid October at the Fairgrounds on Headquarters Road. During summer the Market is also held Downtown on Wednesdays. There are several wineries to explore in the surrounding areas including Coastal Black, Blue Moon and 40 Knots, as well as distilleries. Shop at some of our favourite places in Downtown Courtenay - Laughing Oyster and Second Page Bookstores and The Tea Shop.
