After working several years as a 911 operator and dispatcher with the RCMP, I have decided to focus my attention on my vacation rentals, traveling, and improving my foreign language skills. I love meeting people from around the world and enjoy the opportunity to learn a new language. I currently speak (beginner) Italian and Japanese. I am passionate about ballroom and latin dancing here in the Comox Valley. My lovable black lab keeps me motivated to swim at the beach, hike the woods and our favourite past time, snow shoe on Mount Washington.

Karen Robinson purchased this townhome in 2011

The Perch on Birch is located on one of my favourite roads in Comox. With the Comox Golf Course at the end of the road leading to a lovely pathway and the many fauna that make Birch Ave their home, it is somewhat of a haven. I have always made a point of passing by this property on my walks since 2003, each time thinking it would make a great rental property. When the property came up for sale in 2011, I did not hesitate to purchase it. After much hard work, my dream to turn two of the units into beautiful vacation rentals has been realized. The gardens are now looking beautiful as i continue to transform this once neglected property into a lovely Comox gem.

Although Comox Vallley is not a large city, it boasts some of the finest restaurants offering many delicious cuisines. Having several of these restaurants in walking distance makes for a wonderful outing while staying at The Perch on Birch.

The Comox Airforce Base is used by the famous Snowbirds every April. Some of their incredible patterns can be viewed right from the rental property. This is the perfect place to stay during Vancouver Island Music Festival held every July as you are steps away from the bus stop and a few minutes drive to the shuttle bus parking lot.

The annual Filberg Festival and Comox Nautical Days held every August long weekend (BC Day) are just a few blocks away. This makes it ideal for guests to enjoy the festivities in a carefree manner without the hassle of parking a vehicle.

Quaint cottage in a quiet part of town, close to all amenities, in the Comox Valley with spectacular scenery! Enjoyed our stay very much. The owner thought of every detail to make our stay so comfortable. Would recommend it to anyone & we will definitely come back.

PERCH ON BIRCH

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this place exceeded our expectations (which were pretty high based on the photos and other reviews). Karen is a delightful hostess and has really thought of everything a guest might need. There really is not one thing to critique and we are hoping to return soon! Our best meal was at Angler's at Dolphin Lodge in Campbell River. Close runner-up was Martine's Bistro - a short stroll from the Perch.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fantastic review D & P! I am truly happy to hear The Perch exceeded your expectations. I boast about Comox Valley restaurants, some within walking distance, but I forgot about the Dolphin in Campbell River-a lovely scenic drive away. I hope you will come back again.

LOVELY AND RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent the weekend at the Perch and loved it! It was like a home away from home but decorated better! Very calming and comfortable. I hope to go back again in the summer and enjoy the BBQ and garden! Thanks again for the lovely stay :-)

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
The Perch on Birch was a perfect place to roost. I had the good fortune of spending a few months at Karen's oasis. A fully equipped kitchen, luscious linens on the oh-so-comfortable bed, Thick cuddly towels. A lovely & very welcoming gift basket on my arrival created a sense of being cared for, as well as providing some tasty treats. Karen displays a great consideration for her guests and their experience. This was illustrated in several ways, one of being a small lit Christmas tree that arrived over the season.
The perch is located close to the heart of Comox walking distance to a grocery store, coffee shops, and some great restaurants. I really can't recommend this enough, Very clean, comfortable, safe, in a walkable neighbourhood that provided some great beach and urban walks.
What you're still reading? Have you booked already? You probably should. Really. It's very good. A morning walk to the public dock to watch the light drift over the sea with a coffee is a perfect way to start the day. How about now? Have you booked it?

Owner's Response: Thank you for this 'glowing' review. You've highlighted some of the wonderful things guests love about The Perch on Birch from its close proximity to great restaurants and coffee shops to the lovely neighbourhood walks & luxury linens. My goal has been to turn this property into an oasis and I'm flattered you already think of it as one. It was such a pleasure to meet you. I hope you'll come back!
