About the Property

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

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

Why the Owner Chose Courtenay, BC, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Seclusion, quiet and beauty, within minutes from an abundance of amenities.
