Excellent Location in a lovely comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Anne was very helpfull and friendly. We were a family of 4 adults and 1 dog. Part of the garden is tastefully fenced which gave us peace of mind for our dogs safety. Beautiful garden with barbecue/ decking/sitting area on ground floor. Further out door seating upstairs on a veranda with a view. Parking space and easy walking distance to local shops. It is very near Goose Spit which is a special place. Comox Valley is a great base for visiting biking parks, beaches, forests and other near by holiday destinations. I would recommend this property and owner to other people.

Great family getaway.

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed the location, as it is on a quiet street, close enough to shops (Downtown Comox and Courtney), light trails, and the ocean. The house has different spaces where one is able to relax and enjoy some down time for themselves without being disturbed. The kitchen space was amazing, we were able to have family dinners as the kitchen was equipped with everything we required, and more than enough seating for everyone to have their own space on the dining room table. The house is warm and inviting, and the garden was a gorgeous view from within the house or on the patio deck.

An inviting home with character and warmth. The location is as advertised. We will return. Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Midden Manor and leave wishing the vacation never ended. The house is on a quiet lane that allows all the stress of everyday life to disappear. The beautiful local beaches are nearby and kayaking was a thrill with seals following along. After a day enjoying the outdoors, we relaxed dining on the deck in the evenings. A true gem for a family get-away.

MAGICAL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

Anne's home is stunning and Anne welcomed our family as though we were her family! Her home is artistically decorated with artwork and comfortable furniture with several seating areas that we enjoyed using for our family holiday reunion. We spent our Christmas in her home which she had decorated beautifully for our 14 year old daughter . . . a real tree! The beds were comfy and the views gorgeous. A wood-stove was lit for our arrival which we continued to use during our stay. Close to everything Comox has to offer and with a gourmet kitchen . . . it couldn't have been more perfect!

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Midden Manor was the perfect choice for our island getaway. The large open concept home design and lush green lawns provided us with the perfect place for BBQ'ing and summer entertaining. We loved waking up smelling and hearing the ocean, taking daily strolls through the neighboring forest trails and taking advantage of the sun kissed patio. The neighborhood was extremely quiet and peaceful and just a short drive to shops and restaurants. The owner has incredible taste in decor and has the house filled with top end amenities.

I highly recommend taking advantage of this gem! 5 stars, 10 out of 10, book it while you can!
