Comox House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This mid-bank oceanfront house is a perfect vacation retreat for couples wanting a romantic getaway or for families wanting an action-packed vacation. You can laze around the 12.5 meter private solar-heated pool (seasonal with new pool liner and cement in 2013), enjoy time in the hot tub (new in 2012) that is through sliding doors off the master bedroom and is available year-round, or sit on the deck and watch the cruise ships go by and the seals play in the water. Even the laziest of children are likely to agree to go for long walks on the beach in both directions as they are tempted by the variety of shells and sea creatures you will encounter. The jellyfish on the rocks and the kelp are always highlights.
For dinner, you can try the many unique restaurants in the Comox Valley, or enjoy dinner on the deck – perhaps fresh seafood you purchased from the fisherman at the harbor complimented by fresh vegetables from the Farmer’s Market that is a 5-minute drive (or a 10-minute bike ride) from the house. In the evening, the absence of city lights allows for magnificent star-gazing from the deck.
The inside of the split-level house has an open concept kitchen and living room with Ship’s oak flooring and the luxuries of a convection oven, gas stove, and a sub-zero fridge. You will enjoy breakfast outsdide at the patio table or inside at the coffee bar with floor-to-ceiling windows along the entire front of the house and a fabulous view of the Sunshine Coast, Texada, Denman, and Hornby Islands.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a large walk-in-closet. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom. The den contains a 51” TV/DVD and a pull-out queen size couch. There is a large office with high-speed internet access and a printer and a games room with a ping pong table and floor-to-ceiling windows with a pool view.
The house is on a very quiet street, yet is conveniently located close to the Comox International Airport and to all the amenities of the Comox Valley, designated a 2007 Cultural Capital of Canada.

About The Owner
We are from Edmonton, Alberta and spent years looking at vacation properties in Alberta and BC. Then we decided to ski at Mount Washington Spring 2004 and look at real estate 'for fun'. How could we turn down this amazing property when it went on the market that spring? We hope to eventually spend much more of the year in Comox.
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
Why The Owner chose Comox
We think that this is one of the most desirable properties in Comox as it has a fabulous view, amazing landscaping, wonderful neighbors and an oceanfront pool.
What makes this house unique
This property is amazingly private. The neighbors across the road told us that they had lived in the neighborhood for years before they figured out that there is a pool in our yard. In the evening, the view is constantly changing as the sun goes down.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Because we are relatively new to VRBO, we've not had guests enter comments directly yet. The following are entries from the guest book:
May 2008 (2 sisters from Bellingham and New York_ - It was lovelier than we would have imagined - the house is not only beautiful but comfortable and designed so thoughtfully. We had brilliant sunshine all day every day for a week. The proximity of Comox offered many restaurants, views - a true joy to be here and we thank you so much for sharing this truly delightful spot! And we loved watching the eagles through the skylight at the top of the stairs! What a happy time we had, with lots of sleep, reading, out for lunch, then back for more naps - a joyful and restful time. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous home.
Summer 2008 - Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us! The ocean view is absolutely lovely and we were lucky enough to have a night when the moon was full. Dinner was always delicious because we would buy fresh shrimp form :Love and Anarchy:(in Comox Harbor) at 5:00. Another great place we found was the cheapest ice cream in the island - "Goats on the roof Market" in Coombs! We managed to get the last blackberries of the season and when when you mix it with strawberry yogurt? Yum! There were plenty of ducks that were seen from the deck and the pool was fully utilized during our stay. We can't wait to come back!
2007-What a beautiful home for us to use! Thank you for sharing it with us. This was our annual golf week and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place to come home to after a day on the 'links'. We will be back!
2007 - This is such an awesome house!! What an amazing place! We had such a relaxing weekend. Love the ping-pong table! Thanks for having such a wonderful place for us to escape, unwind, and relax. The beach was an amazing adventure, seeing the seashells and tiny little crabs. It was also the perfect spot for a bonfire. The fresh sea air was good for both our lungs and for the fire. The deck and blacony was one of the best I've ever seen.
Two couples from England Oct 2008: Incredible house. Woke happy every morning knowing (whilst eating breakfast) I could see the beautiful ocean and mountains. The fishing was outstanding, salmon most nights for dinner, going in the hot tub before tea was truly heaven. The only negative part was knowing I had to go home. Thanks so much."
"It has been a wonderful holiday. Terrific house, warm, comfortable, in fact
