About David and Lucille

We both wanted to move from busy jobs to a slower pace of life, closer to nature - and we found it here in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. We love spending our time on long walks on the beaches, skiing and snowshoeing on Mount Washington, taking in the vibrant local music scene, and sampling the Valley's superb dining venues.

Why David and Lucille chose Comox Valley

We searched far and wide for the perfect location – ultimately our search took us to the beautiful Comox Valley in British Columbia where we fulfilled our dreams and surpassed our expectations. We love our house, and we love to share its joys and pleasures with others.

We savour the leafy green quiet and solitude of our location - yet we're only 5 minutes from Courtenay's charming downtown. Birdsong is always in the air. You can lie by the pool and watch eagles soar overhead or stroll nearby walking trails.

Superb and stylish property - we loved it.

  • 5 of 5

David and Lucille have tried to think of everything to make their guests feel welcome. Spec is unusually high eg polished wood floors, quality furniture. Pool is a great size, clean and warm. We just should have stayed longer...

Beauty and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight delightful and relaxing days at La Pause. The house is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated, with a variety of comfortable areas both indoors and out where three couples can gather as a group or spend quiet time on their own. The kitchen was the room we used most. It has plenty of space and every appliance and utensil you could think of, which makes cooking and dining-in an economical and enjoyable option. What makes La Pause extra-special, however, are the gorgeously landscaped garden, deck, and patio areas, featuring a profusion of colorful flowers, a lily pond, and two splashing water fountains, in addition to the swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna. The Comox Valley has so many stunning and fascinating sites to visit, but you’ll find it hard to tear yourself away from La Pause. We highly recommend it and would love to stay there again.

Beautiful, clean, and private with perfect special touches!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday on the island and staying at La Pause was a perfect start to our vacation. The residence is lovely and was very private. We had several spaces where we could relax quietly and felt very at home here. David & Lucille understand perfectly how to treat their guests, with lots of special touches like the always available coffee bar, books to read, treats on the coffee bar and the most delicious breakfasts ever. You are treated so special here and feel very spoiled. I would highly recommend La Pause to anyone visiting the area. We would definitely come back again! Thank you again David & Lucille we loved chatting with you both!
