This comfortable, immaculate ocean-view house sits nestled in the middle of a spectacular garden in one of the loveliest areas of the scenic Comox Valley. It features hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms (open concept), two large bedrooms, a four-piece bathroom, large windows from which to admire the view, a lovely, working kitchen and French doors leading onto a huge deck. The main floor contains a family room, laundry facilities, a three-piece bathroom and another bedroom. Both floors have ocean views and access to the yard.

The house is located on a corner lot adjacent to a park with peaceful and well-maintained walking trails. Beach access is found across the quiet road. Both the north and south ends of the road are used primarily by the residents of this enclave so it is perfect for biking, blading or just walking. The property has a number of fruit trees--help yourself! The yard is large and well-maintained, with a goldfish 'pond', backyard porch, many lovely spots from which to admire the view, enjoy the peace and beauty of your surroundings, read a book or dream plus plenty of space left over to host a croquet tournament, throw the ball around, or put up the volleyball or badminton net. This is truly a magical place!

The house is within 20 minutes of Courtenay/Comox. Restaurants, the Sid Williams Theatre which features fantastic performers and wonderful stage productions to suit any taste, boating, fishing, kayaking, beach combing, shopping, swimming, hiking ... a recreation and outdoor paradise is at your door. The area hosts the annual Filberg Festival and is home to an eclectic and talented variety of artists and their workshops. Summer festivals abound for both young and old, the world-class spa facilities at the renowned Kingfisher spa and Resort are a mere five-minute drive from the house, championship golfing is offered at the Crowne Isle Resort and Mt. Washington hosts annual international skiing and mountain biking contests. There is something for everyone!

It is fully furnished, with sleeping capacity for six. TV, DVD player, VCR, convection oven and gas barbecue are included. Bedding and towels are supplied. Beach shoes are recommended for beach combing. Pets will be accepted on approval. No smoking indoors please.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property in a perfect location, we stayed in Union Bay for 5 days at the end of our western Canada tour, we couldn't have asked for anything better. Ideally situated to your beautiful Vancouver Island, well equipped, quiet with amazing views from the deck.

Nice view, clean and quite comfy

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with my sister in law for a girls weekend split between the slopes of Mt Washington and spa in Courtney. The house had a lovely view, the beds were comfortable. We got snow while there and the basement was a quite cold, but there was a nicely provided heater that kept me toasty in the bedroom. Everything was super clean and the kitchen was well stocked with kitchenware for making dinner.

Owner's Response: Hi Kristi We’re happy you and your sister-in-law enjoyed yourselves at the house! I hope we will be able to host your family again in the near future and next time we’ll make sure there is wood in the house to use in the fireplaces! Thanks for reminding me and please accept my apologies for this oversight. Until next time!

Was a great place and location, enjoyed our stay. Recommend it for others.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the view of the sunrise and the moon at night over the water was fantastic. Lots of space and nearby trail to walk along as well. Had a wide variety of books and cinema to read/watch for downtime. Only downside was the downstairs part was a little smoky when first arrived for the lower fireplace. Overall a fantastic place to stay and would stay here again.

Spacious, well stocked, great views, easy.

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 days in this home with my 2 young daughters, my mother, and my husband, while we were in town visiting my mother-in-law in Courtenay. It was such an easy, relaxed stay. Kitchen was well stocked (for a rental house), tons of movies (kids watched Austin Powers on VHS about a million times), kids' toys and books and games, and beautiful views from the 2nd story deck. We explored the local beach one day, and the walking trails through the neighboring woods another.

I think the only negative was that the wifi was unreliable enough to be unusable. I had to decamp to a Starbucks to get some work done. Next time, if I needed this to be a working trip, that'd be problematic, but for just occasional work, it was fine.

Beautiful View

I highly recommend staying at the house. Absolutely no complaints. Everything was perfect. Beautiful accommodations, deck facing the water, and listening to the sea lions.

Had a great holiday made all the better having a super place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great spot with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Lots of room with all the convinces one would need. The assortment of games and books kept everyone occupied even on the rainy days. Highly rommended.
