This newly renovated waterfront home provides a very comfortable way to enjoy your own beach and all that the Comox Valley has to offer. Located just north of Comox, the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage is on half an acre with 100 feet of waterfront. The stunning views of the Straight of Georgia and the coastal mountains on the B.C. mainland provide an ever changing backdrop for a great holiday.
The Comox Valley has activities for everyone. Go beachcombing just outside your door, or enjoy hiking, biking or picnics in nearby Seal Bay, Kitty Coleman and Miracle Beach Provincial Parks. Go golfing at any, or all of the nearby courses. Try salmon fishing, whale watching, or kayaking. Take a day trip on a ferry to Denman and Hornby Islands, drive to Comox lake, or shop, dine out, or attend markets and festivals in Comox or Courtenay. In winter, it is an easy 40 minute drive for skiing at Mt.Washington.
The cottage and property have a very private and natural feel. It is on a rural street but is within minutes of town and all the amenities you will need. You will see deer, herons, eagles and a variety of birdlife everyday. You will likely see seals on the beach below and may even see orcas from the windows or deck. On the beach you will find a variety of marine life amongst the rocks and in the tide pools. The boat traffic, which includes barges, fishing boats and cruise ships bound for Alaska also add interest to the view.
Create special family meals in the gourmet kitchen or on the gas grill. Enjoy dining on the deck or inside, and then have a pleasant evening on the beach, around a campfire, roasting marshmallows.
On those lazy or rainy days, help yourself to the movies, books, games and puzzles. Enjoy the fireplace, the warmth of the wood floors and the hummingbirds at the feeder outside the window.
BC Ferries reservations are recommended
