About Karla

Passionate about skiing and traveling, Brian and Karla Scott decided to purchase a vacation property at their home mountain so leisure was truly out their back door. In the accommodation business already with The Cona Hostel in Courtenay for backpackers, it seemed a logical fit to buy a property that they could share with other snow-lovers too.

When Brian wanted to return to his native Vancouver Island, Karla, originally from Manitoba, was game as long as skiing was part of the package.

Karla purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Karla chose Comox-Strathcona C

Chateau Cona offers most of the sought-after features and is one of very few that does:

Ski-in Ski out

Drive-in access

Hot tubs


Sleeps 19

Fantastic, clean, and spacious chalet. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The space was clean and setup when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and nice silverware. Bedrooms were really nice as well. Sauna was our favourite part. Would go back in a heart beat.

A nice property for a large group

  • 4 of 5

We rented both units for our extended family. This was a family reunion in the summer. Having both units was ideal and very comfortable. The upper unit is definitely more spacious and comfortable and has a better equipped kitchen. Really nice having both units as we could access both hot tubs and barbecues. The owners are very responsive to issues that arise and helpful in sorting out confusion over workings of various appliances, etc. Being up on the mountain allowed for a quiet get together and the area afforded good outdoor opportunities for individuals and families.

A great place to stay and relax.

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was perfect for our five families. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean (funky tiling!), kitchens were well stocked with all necessities and we had a great stay. We could still have an element of privacy in our rooms if needed and the living areas were perfect for hanging out. Thanks B and K.
