About the property

One bedroom cottage with ocean views - 80 steps to the ocean

Come fly away to this romantic, oceanfront oasis. This new 900 sq ft cottage was designed to maximize views, privacy, comfort and functionality. Step outside onto your spacious view deck and enjoy the fresh air and natural beauty that surrounds you or spark up the gas BBQ and enjoy your dinner while the sun sets. You will enjoy the views from almost every area of the cottage. You'll find a modern, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer facilities and a spacious bathroom with a large walk-in shower. On chilly evenings, relax by the gas fireplace and take in a movie on the large screen TV or a board game at the kitchen table. Outside, you can enjoy the oceanfront fire pit while you watch the sun set and the cruise ships make their way to Alaska. In the mornings, you may hear the the eagles chirping as they enjoy their catch atop the trees on the property. Watch Great Blue Herons fish at the shoreline. At low tide, dip your toes into the sandy beach and look for starfish and sand dollars. It's a magical place.

The cottage is within walking distance of Miracle Beach Provincial Park campground and beach. As well, Seaview Farms offers tours and a gift shop within walking distance in the other direction. Groceries, Liquor Store, coffee shops and gift shops are a 10 minute drive away. The large centres of the Comox Valley and Campbell River are within @ 30 minutes drive. Wifi, cable and cell services are included.

The cottage is situated on a .5 acre lot in a quiet area and sits next to, but separate from the owner's home. Rest assured, guest privacy and enjoyment is top of mind for the owners. As well, landscaping and cottage positioning was chosen to enhance guest privacy. Having said that, your hosts are open and happy to answer your questions and help to ensure your experience is most enjoyable.

About Max and Lisa Fossum

Our family is very happy to welcome you to this beautiful place on the East Coast of Vancouver Island. We live in the main house next to the cottage, but your privacy is very important to us. The cottage is not overlooked and is very private.

However, we are also very happy to help you with any questions or issues you may encounter and will always be available.

Why Max and Lisa Fossum chose Black Creek

It's just such a beautiful, calming place to rest, re-charge and re-connect with nature, while still close to all the amenities and attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

It's not just ocean view ! The back drop is the amazing Coastal Mountain Range across the water! Located between Campbell River "The Salmon Fishing Capital of the world" , the Beautiful Comox Valley and Mount Washington Resort. New, professionally built cottage with accessibility in mind - 1 level, open spaces, etc. Open concept living area with that view. 80 steps to ocean on groomed path. Watch the sunset over the mountains and ocean from your cottage, deck or the firepit by the water.

Miracle Beach Provincial Park and beach are practically next door. Situated on a quiet, no through road on a .5 acre property.

Serenity on the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We stayed here in September. What can we say that other reviewers have not? Look no more if you would like to stay in a beautiful, modernized seaside cottage with all the amenities. The cottage has state of the art technology while still upholding the seaside cottage feel. Tastefully decorated and immaculate. Beautiful property. My only regret is we were far busier than anticipated and weren't able to enjoy spending more time at the cottage. Lisa and Max were very responsive to any questions we had about the area and dining. Had a wonderful time and would love to go back. Thank you Lisa and Max for sharing your family's cottage.

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the cottage and amenities. Spotlessly clean, wonderful layout to take in the ocean view, everything seems brand new and you don't feel that you are being watched even though owners are right next door. Nothing was overlooked and owners put much thought and attention into outfitting the cottage for guests comfort. The beaches of that area are amazing and you never tire of what the sea offers up in the way of bird watching, ships going by, sunsets and lovely sandy beach once the tide is out.

Courtenay and Campbell River are both easily accessible and less than a half hour each way, with Miracle Beach Provincial Park a very short walk to the north. Even though you feel you are far away from everything, groceries and such are a quick 5 minutes up the road.

Max and Lisa are extremely helpful yet keep to themselves so as not to intrude on your space and you couldn't find nicer hosts!

If you are looking for total relaxation, fantastic views and a beautiful cottage retreat, this little slice of heaven is highly recommended.

Thank you for a wonderful stay experience!

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

VRBO should use this cottage as an example to any owners wanting to rent their home. I have been using VRBO and Homeaway for many years. I have had the pleasure of staying in some top notch rentals. NONE have been as well thought out as this one.

To start, the rental was super CLEAN. We all know how easy it is to miss something here and there. This home was impeccable. Even the baseboards were shining! We appreciated the abundance of kitchen utensils, spices, and a nice Weber grill. Large modern TV's with Netflix access, thoughtful interior design, and even a tablet filled with a variety of playlists connected to Bose speakers??!!! The owners have thought of everything to ensure your stay is a special one. Lisa was warm, helpful, and informative. We felt right at home after she toured the property with us.

The VIEW from the cottage is really was difficult to leave the front deck. I don't know how the owners ever get anything done! You can sit and watch for hours. and of course, a pair of binoculars is supplied for guest use. We had such fun watching birds, rabbits, seals, and even some orcas in the morning and evenings.

We found the location to be perfectly situated. Close to Courtenay and Campbell River but far enough away to feel restful and quiet. Our only regret was not renting the place for longer. I definitely plan on returning as well as recommending to my friends and family. It is truly a special place. Thank you for sharing it with us Lisa and Max!

Cozy cottage with amazing ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The cottage is new and clean and has everything you need. The property is beautiful and private. We rented paddle boards and launched them right from the beach out front. There is lots to explore in the area and the hosts are very friendly and helpful with recommendations. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Lisa, Max (and Chelsea too)!
