Courtenay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Newly Renovated, With Separate Studio, On The Beach.

Tucked away in a quiet, verdant cul-de-sac you will come upon The White House, a magical waterfront cottage, with spectacular panoramic ocean views overlooking the Strait of Georgia. Savary Island is directly across the water, and the rugged coastal mountains of the BC mainland form a dramatic backdrop.

The White House is an approximately 2,000 sq. ft. cottage with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped chef’s kitchen with gas stove. The cottage is newly renovated with excellent natural light year-round and an open floor plan that takes full advantage of the ocean views. It is decorated with original art and artifacts from around the world.

Dine inside in the spacious, airy dining room, or open the French doors to the large deck, with outdoor, dining table and barbecue, overlooking the ocean. Spend the long summer evenings lazing on the deck, or curl up with a book in the cozy serenity of the sitting room, beside the wood burning stove.

The beautifully appointed master and second bedrooms each comes with a queen bed and a built-in closet. The master ensuite bathroom features a double vanity, bath with shower and a towel heater for warm and dry towels. The second bathroom has a large walk-in shower and a towel heater.

Adjacent to the cottage is a separate studio with bunk beds, providing additional accommodation for up to four people. It has a 2-piece bathroom and a kitchenette. This is an ideal space for kids to hang out.

The cottage is surrounded by a garden with a lawn and fruit trees. There is a vegetable patch where you can pick fresh salad and other veggies for your table.

The ocean at your doorstep teems with life. Bald eagles, great blue herons, seals and sea lions are in residence most of the year. The strait harbours both resident and migratory orcas, whales, dolphins and porpoises. Shallow rock pools are home to countless species of small creatures that provide endless hours of fascination for children young and old. Watch your children explore the beach from the beachside sitting area around the fire pit. If you would like to explore a little further afield, you can launch your kayak or paddle board directly from the beach, or go for a long beachcombing walk. An intrepid angler can cast a line right in front of the cottage.

The White House is situated in the Comox Valley, about 10 minutes’ drive north of Courtenay, in a secluded rural setting. The area provides an abundance of fresh produce from local farms. Available within a few minutes’ drive are fresh berries, vegetables, eggs, award-winning local cheeses and wines, and an assortment of locally raised poultry and meats. There is also a wide selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs in the nearby towns of Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland.

The Comox Valley offers many and varied outdoor activities, including golf, cycling, hiking, boating, fishing and skiing. The White House is about a 10 minutes’ walk from the hidden gem of Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens, 7 minutes’ drive from Seal Bay Nature Park and forest, and 15 minutes’ drive from Miracle Beach and Saratoga Beach (both lovely sandy beaches). Mount Washington ski resort, and the adjacent Paradise Meadows trailhead in the vast Strathcona Provincial Park, are a 35 minute drive.

Comox International Airport is a 20 minute drive away.

About Ankia Kriegler

We are a couple with children, who moved to the Comox Valley in 2012.

Ankia Kriegler purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ankia Kriegler chose Comox Valley

During our second summer in our new waterfront home, the neighbouring property came up for sale. We were already in love with the area and jumped at the chance to participate in sharing a bit of this wonderful rural seaside lifestyle with others.

What makes this cottage unique

Seclusion, quiet and beauty, within minutes from an abundance of amenities.

The best of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving late our first night, Ankia greeted us cheerfully and quickly showed us around. We where instantly impressed with the cottage and the warm welcome. The gorgeous sunrise awoke us the first day and got us up in time to see the seal on the rocks. Through out the week we came and went as we explored from the best base camp in the province, the Comox Valley. Arising each morning and returning each evening was a treat of relaxation. The ships passing, the tides abb and flow and the sun glistening off the evening water made for such a peaceful experiance. Our best VRBO experiance to date in a location we will return to many times. We could not have hoped for a more delightful home and Stefan and Ankia are the kindest hosts we have ever encountered. Of all the VRBO's out there, this one deserves a return trip!

Quiet, well appointed beach house.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, light and airy beach home with an amazing ocean view. We spotted flickers, bald eagles and kingfishers along with seals. All we needed for a home away from home provided. Flowers decorated the house and fresh cookies and granola were provided along with fresh seasonal fruit. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family.

Beyond Expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property.

The property is amazing, very spacious and comfortable. The view every morning is spectacular. We saw a ton of wildlife; Seals right out in front of the property, Deer around the neighborhood, a couple of bald eagles and more. The area is quite and peaceful, the view at night was out of this world.

It's a quick drive to town and not to far to Campbell River.

It was beyond what we were expecting and we defiantly plan on returning!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

A snug rainy Thanksgiving weekend in a wonderful home. Excellent kitchen, nicely stocked with the basics and all the gadgets, pots and pans, you would ever need for gourmet cooking. Lovely beds and bathrooms and superb design and decoration. A true pleasure from the moment we arrived to the moment we (sadly) left. Ankia gave us some special treats and had fresh flowers for us at our bedsides.The fireplace warmed our hearts, the views warmed our souls and we were very happy to have had spent our time here. Much better than even the pictures show--we're coming back.

Awe-inspiring getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our oceanfront getaway in this out-of-a-magazine beachfront home. We caught more than occasional glimpses of sea lions, seals, whales, eagles, herons, and even a black bear, from the full-length deck - which also afforded many starlit dinners, lounging, and meditative moments, given its expansive view. A stellar home-base for those wanting to explore the multitude of attractions that Comox, Courtney, and Campbell River offer in abundance - from beach combing to garden strolls to rain forest hikes or quaint window shopping strolls in town. A wonderful place to spend an anniversary, or anytime, for that matter! Highly recommend it to couples, friends, families - something for everyone.
