My husband and I grew up in the Comox Valley and can't say enough about how fortunate we feel to live here. Comox and the Goose Spit are our favourite places to be, and lucky us, we get to live here. Henrie, an artist and avid vegetable and landscape gardener. Husband, Pat is a mariner and the inspiration for the name, Mariner's Lookout on Comox Bay. We enjoy travelling and meeting people and look forward to welcoming our guests from near and far. I am a proud member of the Comox Rotary Club.

Henrie purchased this cottage in 2006

This location has been our home for 17 years and we've always wanted to build a guest home and gallery. Because we love living here, we felt that others would appreciate vacationing here.

We began construction of the second building 4 years ago with the help of a contractor. Henrie took on the project after the drywall stage and did the finishing painting, carpentry, tiling, stairs, flooring (with hubby's help), etc. It was a challenge and we are very pleased with the results.

The mountains, the Comox Bay, the Goose Spit and the garden make this location ideal for relaxation, winter or summer. The lounge chairs and picnic table are stategically located to take advantage of the garden and the view.

The view also entices you to take advantage of the proximity to all that the Comox Valley has to offer.

The beach is down the hill from our driveway, the ski hill is close by, golfing is only 15 minutes away on foot and next door to the shopping mall. Our guests often walk from Mariner's Lookout to, and from, some of the best restaurants in the Comox Valley. Trails from here lead to forests, the beaches, and the Filberg Park, location of a renown arts and music festival. We are also close to a bus stop serviced by the valley's public transit system.

Deer, racoons, many birds (including quail, eagles, hawks and pheasants) are seen regularly from the suites picture windows. An eagle's nest is visible with binoculars from the kitchen eating area.

LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in Mariners Lookout last August and just loved it! We loved waking up to the view of the ocean every morning. It was so peaceful that my husband slept in for the first time in years! And Henri spoiled us with her delicious fruit crumble. What a treat! Thanks for sharing your beautiful guest house with us! We hope to come back soon.

PERFECT VIEW AND PERFECTLY RESTFUL

  • 5 of 5
Needing a quiet, calm, restful vacation, I am so glad I picked this property. Henri was a wonderful hostess in that she provided everything I needed, yet gave me the space to come and go as I needed. She was perfectly accomodating. The place was immaculate. The view of the gardens and the ocean and the mountains all at once - either while dining or upon waking - was beautiful. The location also, could not be better. 5 minutes (walking) to the beach or 10 minutes (walking) to town, with plenty of trails to hike along the way.

A RELAXING GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
One of the most relaxing vacations we have experienced. A lovely home away from home. Great attention to details to make our stay so memorable. Thank you Henrie and Pat. We loved the view and enjoyed seeing the eagles. Such thoughtful touches such as the muffins and cookies. We would like to see your gardens when they are in full bloom. We can't wait to return.

11 OUT OF 10

  • 5 of 5
Returning to the coast from Calgary, we began our transition with a 3 month stay at Mariners's Lookout while we searched for a new home in the Comox Valley. LUCKY US! What a wonderful cozy and comfortable apartment. The view from the kitchen table window is nothing short of spectacular, looking out over Henri's garden, Goose Spit, and the mountains beyond. Virtually every morning we watched bald eagles as we sipped our coffee. Even in the winter, the garden captures your interest. Toward late February as our tenure was coming to an end, many spring plants were starting to make their appearance. At this time we can only imagine what it will be like in the summer so we will just have to visit again when the garden is in full bloom. Henri and Pat are sincere and friendly hosts who possess a wealth of knowledge about the Comox Valley and are more than eager to share. Thank you Henri and Pat for everything!

Our location is rural, yet only a 15 minute walk from the town center and 5 minutes from the beach. We have within view, better with binoculars, of an eagles nest and guests enjoy watching them from the kitchen window while dining. Windsurfers and marine traffic can be seen from a distance on the opposite side of the same window. The golf course is also 15 minutes on foot towards the heart of Comox. Visitors to the Filberg Festival enjoy our setting and accommodation as well as the ease of walking to and from the festivities. The marina, MacDonald Woods, Northeast Woods, the Goose Spit are all very close and offer a diverse choice of walks. Fish is sold directly from the marina and we can see the shrimp boat, in season, arriving from our place. The shrimp are very reasonably priced and almost as big as prawns!
