Property description

Enjoy the countless recreational activities (sailing, kayaking, fishing, golfing, tennis, hiking, etc.) of the Comox Valley from the comfort of this spacious 3100 sq. ft. three bedroom home located on 1.25 acres at the tip of Cape Lazo, just 8 kilometres from Comox. Its two-level, post and beam design with natural cedar ceilings creates a warm ambiance for the entire family to enjoy. On the main floor, expansive picture windows provide panoramic views of Georgia Strait, numerous islands, and the magnificent snow-capped mountain ranges of Vancouver Island and the Mainland. Gather around the Island in the spacious and well equipped kitchen with adjacent deck and BBQ.

If you are an “early bird”, catch the sunrise while sipping your morning coffee on the front east facing deck overlooking the sandy beach below, and delight in the abundant marine life: eagles, herons, sea lions or the occasional pod of Orcas. From the deck, follow the private path that very gently winds to the secluded sandy beach where one can walk for miles or explore the tidal pools. For the swimmer, the water in the summer gets warm especially when the high tide comes in over the hot sand during the day. It's considered one of the best beaches in the Comox Valley, and since the public access is a fairly long walk away, it's very secluded.

Stretch out with a good book in the shade of the fruit trees, or get some exercise playing bocce in our private back yard bordered by tall rhododendrons, and often frequented by deer. The evening sunset over Mt. Washington (watch it from the sunset deck off the Master bedroom) will delight, but the fun’s not over yet. Enjoy the moon rise over the water from the front deck where the day began. The fully lit cruise ships bound for Alaska will mesmerize as you contemplate another relaxing day in paradise. We accept a variety of payment options. Email us for more information.

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I are retired teachers who have lived in the Comox Valley since 1974. We love the area and really enjoy all the recreational activities at our doorstep. We have raised our family here and can't imagine living anywhere else. Although we love to travel, our favourite place to be is home.

Why the Owner Chose Comox-Strathcona B, BC, Canada:
Our property offers stunning views, sunrise over the ocean and sunset over the mountains, complete privacy, a huge yard, decks all across the ocean side of the house, and a sunset deck with garden, mountain and ocean views, off the master bedroom. The deck on the ocean side of the property overlooks a gorgeous, secluded sandy beach that goes for miles and is great for walking, swimming, and exploring the marine life. Public beach access is quite far, hence this beach is very private. We have a trail on our property that is unique to us and our immediate neighbours. Marine and bird life is abundant and beach activities are endless.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While this is only our second season offering our home via VRBO, we have rented for many summer seasons through a different rental agency. Here are just a few of the many comments left in our guest book: * Really came to view your place as a tranquil sanctuary as the week went on. Outstanding photography ops, beaching combing, hiking, swimming…we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Val & Mike * Awesome! What a a fantastic location and lovely home. Many hours were spent relaxing on the deck and walking along the beach. Prendergast family * What a great vacation! A very restful place to be. We enjoyed the ocean view, watching the tides and the seals, exploring the beach over and over, always finding something new. Every day we found a new place to hike! Watzke family * Your lovely home was the highlight of our vacation. Our family will come away from here with an abundance of beautiful memories from exploring the beach (so full of life everywhere you look), to staring in awe as a bald eagle glided through the sky over our heads! VanHorn family Please note the rates quoted on VRBO are in American dollars. Our rate is $350 CAD nightly with a 7 night minimum stay.
