About Rosalie Crofford

We have lived in the Comox Valley most of our lives and owned this property since the early 1960's. In 2012 the cottage was rebuilt from the foundation up so it is new, modern, comfortable and a great place to relax and unwind. We wanted to share it's beauty.

Rosalie Crofford purchased this cottage in 1960

Why Rosalie Crofford chose Courtenay

We love and appreciate nature, quiet, the ocean, the mountain views and above all privacy therefore this was the perfect property for us, which we now wish to share with others.

What makes this cottage unique

The views, sound of the ocean lapping on the shore, watching the wildlife and cruise ships (in season) go by along with the peace and serenity make this an enjoyable place to kick back, relax and enjoy life.

Our Stay

  • 3 of 5

My husband, 2 month old, and myself stayed at this cottage for nearly 3 weeks. The cottage is beautiful. It has everything you could need for your stay, they did a really good job building this cottage. Our stay was amazing, the neighbors staying in the cottage next door were awesome and also had a 3 month old. We got along great and spent a lot of time together. The trip was amazing. There is a bit of a smell from the bay, it is from the seaweed washing up on the rocks and baking in the sun all day. Some days were worse than others but it was bearable. It didn't effect our trip. What effected our trip was the treatment we received after we left. We received an email from VRBO that we were not getting our damage deposit back because the host claimed we had tents set up in the yard and had people staying in them, and that the entire 3 weeks there were multiple adults and babies at the cottage. This was just not true. We had a 10x10 pop up tent in the yard for shade for our baby, but we did not have any sleeping tents of any other people staying at the cottage. The multiple adults and babies they saw were the neighbors who also rent a cabin from these hosts. When I contacted her to explain this she said that the real reason they were keeping the damage deposit was because the fridge was dirty and they were missing a large pot and pillows, We never had a large pot and we know this as the second night we were there we tried to make spaghetti and had to cook the noodles in 2 batches in the small pot provided. Also we brought our own pillows, we did not steal any of theirs. And finally we stayed there for nearly three weeks. They did not leave instructions to clean the fridge so we didn't. We also got charged a cleaning fee which should have covered any cleaning after we left. When I explained this to the host she then changed the story again. Saying the reason we didn't get the damage deposit back was because we spilled something sticky on the patio and on the hot tub lid. Again these are all cleaning things we did not DAMAGE anything. There were no cleaning supplies provided and there were no instructions left to clean the cottage before we left. The fact that they kept changing the reason why they were keeping our fee made us feel like we were being scammed. We didn't get our deposit back until I filed a complaint with VRBO. The host immediately refunded our damage deposit. Great Cottage, Terrible Hosts.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you had this experience. Sadly this is the first time we have ever felt it necessary to even so much as raise a concern about a guest. We have had over 150 guests at the cottage over the past couple of years and not one time have we felt it necessary to as you put it 'scam someone out of their damage deposit'. Thee are two sides and we choose to only say thank you for choosing the cottage for your vacation. Rosalie

A cozy and beautifully renovated oceanview cottage

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was well stocked and it was great having a dishwasher but there was no dish soap for washing dishes by hand. Also the chef knives were very dull.

A hair dryer would have been nice in the bathroom.

It would have been helpful if it had been mentioned that beach access from the cottage was difficult, very large, flat rocks that you had to jump or climb down. It was not doable for my elderly mother, but luckily there was access up the road a bit (within walking distance). It was also not mentioned that there is another cottage right next door, nor is it in any of the photos.

Loved the wood stove and appreciated how well insulated the cottage was as the weather wasn't as warm as we had hoped, however the view was stunning with the ever changing clouds turning grey/black/blue/purple with intermittent blue sky and almost every evening we were dazzled by a beautiful rainbow arcing out of Powell River. We loved watching the Eagles, Kingfishers and Herons catching fish directly in front and explored nearby Kin Beach Provincial Park, Comox, Courtenay and Campbell River. It was a wonderful getaway.

Quiet location. Great views over the sea. Good facilities inside this cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean inside. Full kitchen and laundry facilities. The focus is the sea, you can see amazing sea life yards from the patio door. Hot tub a great addition. Parking for at least two cars next to the property. Loved the views, the cottage and our stay.
