About Karen Robinson

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

Why Karen Robinson chose Comox

The Perch on Birch is located on one of my favourite avenues 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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

Perfect Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
What a find! My husband and I spent two nights in this delightful cottage for a family reunion in Comox. The cottage is immaculate, you could eat off the floor. Beds (including fold out couch) were very comfortable, linens were beautiful, kitchen and bath were well stocked including cookware, lovely dishes and glassware, basic pantry items, even shampoo, etc., in bathroom. Karen the owner is wonderful. She lives next door if you need anything yet you have total privacy as a guest. The location is perfect: close to the village but in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by a lovely large garden. Karen recommended a visit to the Saturday Farmer's Market in Comox and it did not disappoint. Just ten minutes drive from the cottage and lots of fun. Great beaches, restaurants, everything is close by. If you love dogs and miss yours back home you can even borrow Karen's darling black Lab "Scooter" to read the paper with you in the garden, as my husband did both mornings. We will definitely rebook this cottage on our next trip to Comox. Thank you Karen!

Second stay, good as the first!

  • 5 of 5
We visited here in January 2014 and spent 3 nights in the Perch. This time, in July, we spent a week in the Roost. Flip a coin if you are choosing between the two units, because they are both perfect. Although we experienced great restaurants during our January visit, there was so much fresh produce and seafood we enjoyed cooking for ourselves this time. Recommend Portuguese Joe's, Sieffert's Farm Market (biggest lettuce I have ever seen) and the Fanny Bay outlet by the Denman Island ferry. Also take out sushi from Sushi-Kobo. Everything is walkable.....golf course, downtown, marina and gelato! Karen is always a treat and this time we made great friends with Scooter! Nothing like a friendly old dog to make you feel welcome! Thank you Karen!

Owner's Response: Thank you Debra & Peter for your wonderful compliments and review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Roost and that you like it every bit as much as the Perch. It is great to hear about your holiday and how you enjoyed the local fresh food and golf. It really is the biggest lettuce!! Scooter is lucky to be loved by the guests. Please come back again. "

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!

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 :-)
