About Sandra

My husband and I are easy-going people who appreciate art and music, and love to get out and enjoy sports in nature (particularly beach walks, kiteboarding, SUP, hiking and snowboarding). Our dog loves to spend time with us when we are gardening. We are originally from Alberta and Vancouver respectfully, but we fell in love with the Comox Valley and moved here 5 years ago.

What makes this cottage unique

The most unique benefit of our home is the fact that we are located in such a central location of all of the cities' amenities, and yet our neighborhood boasts large (3/4 acre) lots with lots of trees that make us feel like we are far from the hustle and bustle of the city and nosy neighbors.

Really Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

The owners made us feel very welcome and the accommodation was an ideal home for our month. The place was spacious and well furnished and outside on the deck we were able to

read, relax and take in the forest setting. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Perfect for 1-2 people

  • 4 of 5

My son stayed here while golfing close by. Had lots of privacy and was quiet. Would give it 5 stars but the oven was very dirty and when he tried to use it, it would set off the smoke detector!

Owner's Response: Sorry about the oven, and thank you for the reminder. The oven is not something I always remember to check between guests, so if the previous guest had a spill I don't always notice it. It has now been cleaned. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Smiles, Sandra

Perfect little Comox hide-away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a "Valentine's get-away" for 3 days of skiing Mt Washington.

OK, it turned out to be 2 days of skiing, as one day was totally saturated by a rain front. But it was all good. We did get some great skiing in. And it's not an overly-long drive to the slopes either.

The cabin was clean, warm, dry. This quaint home-base managed to be both functional and romantic. The bed was super comfortable. Plenty of nearly-instant hot water. Full kitchen really did have everything we needed to do our own cooking. And there are lots of grocery or restaurant choices a short drive away. It is located near the airport, but we enjoyed dead-quiet -- except for just a few moments of plane noise, which I only noticed once in our whole stay.

Really, this was a great way to enjoy Comox and Mt Washington. We hope to be repeat customers.

All boxes checked: clean, roomy, relaxing, and great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint little gem just off two of the main roads which made it easy to drive anywhere we wanted in Comox or Courtney. It's tucked away in the trees - my husband and I sat out of the little deck at night enjoying a cool beverage and the clean air and "mosquito-free" evenings! The hosts are lovely - with all the great activities there are in the area we weren't around enough to get to know them, but they were welcoming and helpful when we checked in and out!

Dancing Trees

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained.

All amenities, layout and location were accurate as stated in the ad.

Owners were very helpful in every way.

A very quite place and ideal location for visiting family in the Courtenay Comox area.

A car is required when staying at this location but that was in no way an issue for us.

The Dancing Trees guest house is located in a very quiet 'one road' neighborhood with large 3/4 acre lots and lots of mature trees, which makes you feel like you're away from it all, in a forest-like setting. Fortunately, we are only a 5 minute drive from beautiful beaches, a world class golf course, and both downtown Comox in one direction and downtown Courtenay in the other. The Comox Valley area is well known for its appreciation of, and its many local Artisans and Musicians, and for its varied outdoor activities such as Mt Washington Ski/Board and Mountain Bike Resort, windsurfing and kiteboarding, kayaking, Stand-Up-Paddleboarding, sailing, Strathcona Park hiking trails, horseback riding, and nature watching.
