About Tom and Linda Doylend

Hi, Greetings from Tom and Linda.

We have lived in the Comox Valley for 27 years and are now retired. Our children have grown up and have families of their own. Courtenay is a great town and we never tire of living in this beautiful valley. Living close to the ocean, mountains, rain forest and everything Vancouver Island has to offer makes our part of the world a very special place. A great day begins with a hike in the mountains or sitting calmly by the sea, watching the tide come in. Here on the island we have some of the best salmon fishing and whale watching in the world. What's not to love about it?

Tom and Linda Doylend purchased this apartment in 1990

Super rental. Great Hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The cozy garden suite was extremely well equipped and immaculate. Very well thought out. It was cool and quiet and the garden access was lovely. It was an extremely comfortable and cozy place to stay as the name suggests and spacious enough for us to have a family of four to tea. Tom and Linda were lovely and great hosts.

I would highly recommend this rental.

A little slice o' paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with Linda and Tom - such gracious hosts, thank you. The suite is absolutely spotless and beautifully furnished/appointed. The kitchen was completely stocked - even had a coffee grinder! The garden is picture perfect with the glacier in the background. Everything they advertized and much more! Can't wait to go back.

The City of Courtenay is located on central Vancouver Island in the heart of the Comox Valley. This is a beautiful place with the Beaufort Mountains to the west and the Georgia Straits to the east.

The climate in the valley is temperate with mild winters and long warm summers.

The mild climate allows for an extended growing season and very lush plant life.

This is a place where golfing, skiing and fishing can all be done on the same day.

The Comox Valley is renowned for events such as the Filberg Arts and Crafts Festival and the Vancouver Island Music Fest.
