I returned to my hometown of Courtenay from Victoria to be be near my large extended family and to enjoy a lifestyle which includes outdoor living - gardening, biking, swimming in the rivers & ocean as well as entertaining and relaxing in our porch and gardens. I am passionate about Latin, Ballroom and Salsa dancing with my husband and our wonderful dance community.
We have travelled in Europe and throughout Mexico with fantastic bookings at other vrbo properties. It is my great pleasure to host guests from all over Canada and the world at my two properties in Courtenay, blueberry cottage & chocolate cottage - Vacation Rentals By Owner.
