Courtenay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

600 square foot 1 Bedroom Suite, pool hot tub and sauna, pet friendly

Pause...Relax...Settle into your fully equipped Vacation Rental Suite at La Pause. Everything is taken care of - your only job is to relax and enjoy....

We repurposed what was originally a poolhouse to accommodate our Vacation Suite, and added an art gallery. We designed and renovated the space to create a truly outstanding vacation rental experience - La Pause Vacation Suite and Spa.

Our goal is to provide a soothing carefree environment with everything you need to relax – we’ll take care of the details, your only job is to enjoy them.

You’ll sleep peacefully in the spacious bedroom, with Queen size bed, fine linens, fireplace, large walk-in closet and ceiling fan.

See yourself stepping out your front door to enjoy the spa facilities: private 40 foot in ground heated pool, hot tub and far infrared sauna. Catch some sun on the spacious pool deck and watch eagles soar overhead…

Prepare your favorite vacation meals in the fully equipped kitchen, or use the outdoor grill. Shop for field and ocean fresh ingredients at nearby shops and farmers markets. Or dine at some of the Comox Valley’s outstanding restaurants, featuring local produce and creative flair.

Catch an on-demand movie on the HDTV, or enjoy a good read from the library; free WiFi included.

4 piece bathroom with Soaker tub and Rain Shower.

Poolside Barbecue and outdoor dining area.

Enjoy the tranquility of our forested location, just 5 minutes drive from Courtenay’s charming downtown and the nearby mountains and beaches.

Browse the Creekside Gallery, located on site - featuring West Coast themed fine art photography by David Innes.

Use La Pause as your home base to explore the delights of Vancouver Island’s Comox Valley, from challenging mountain terrain and oceanside beaches to galleries, cafes, and shopping, all located nearby in a delightful small town setting.

We both wanted to move from busy jobs to a slower pace of life, closer to nature - and we found it here in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. We love spending our time on long walks on the beaches, skiing and snowshoeing on Mount Washington, taking in the vibrant local music scene, and sampling the Valley's superb dining venues.

Lucille Doucet & David Innes

David and Lucille purchased this cottage in 2006

Our original dream was to open a bed-and-breakfast.

We searched far and wide for the perfect location – ultimately our search took us to the beautiful Comox Valley in British Columbia where we fulfilled our dreams and surpassed our expectations. During the five-year operation of our bed-and-breakfast we met many great folks from around the world. Our dreams fulfilled, we decided it was time for change and converted a garage/workshop into a beautiful one bedroom suite where our guests can pause, relax and enjoy their luxurious Vacation Suite and Spa.

Lucille Doucet & David Innes

We love the leafy green quiet and solitude of our location - yet we're only 5 minutes from Courtenay's charming downtown. Birdsong is always in the air. You can lie by the pool and watch eagles soar overhead...

or stroll some of the nearby walking trails.

Holiday

  • 5 of 5
One of the best self catering homes we have stayed in. Everything you could ever need, in a wonderful location. David and Lucille couldn't have been more helpful,and obviously spend a lot of time making sure everything is just right for their visitors. Very friendly town with plenty to see and do, would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing break.

Comfort and Serenity, yet Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5
Every detail, right down to the name, appears to have been carefully planned and selected to convey a sense of calm and relaxation from the moment you arrive at La Pause.

I was looking for a longer-term stay with my dog and had the opportunity to spend a month at La Pause. I had concerns that the space might be small for that length of time, but everything is so well laid out, I never felt constrained. The beautiful surroundings, lovely, quaint and pristine suite nicely decorated with some of David's photography, and the hosts' commitment to their guests' comfort were outstanding, and provided for a wonderful home as I waited for my own to be built.

David and Lucille could not have been more welcoming. Lucille's unexpected plate of homemade cookies and her thoughtfully prepared Easter Brunch personalized the experience even more. David was available to immediately problem solve some of my unique issues due to my travel needs, and always did so with a smile.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family visiting the Comox Valley at any time of year.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
When we decided to get away from the cold, we booked La Pause for our visit to Courtenay, and we are so glad we did. David and Luceille are gracious and welcoming hosts who do everything they can to make you feel comfortable and at home. The suite and grounds are very special-tasteful and comfortable. Everything you need is on hand as well as many special additions. As well, David's photography and Luceille's cooking and baking are such a treat!
La Pause is a real home away from home.

Our dream Holiday in Canada and Alaska. Final week on Vancouver Island at LaPause

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week at LaPause, it was everything advertised - and more. David and Lucille were so friendly and helpful and the property was exactly as advertised which is a relief when booked from thousands of miles away! Style, cleanliness and facilities were exemplary. We were lucky with the weather and were able to make use of the pool, hot tub, sauna and barbie. Courtenay was ideally situated for us to explore the island and we would recommend the whale watching expedition we took from Campbell River. I would unhesitatingly recommend this as a holiday destination, our only complaint was that our time there was too short!!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
From the fully stocked suite to the BC chocolates on the pillow it was a wonderful experience.
The pool, sauna, and jacuzzi are spectacular and there is a large yard to run our pooch.
David and Lucille were very warm and welcoming and were happy to share their yard with us.
The suite was beautifully decorated and spotless on our arrival. Courtenay is a really nice town and is only a 3 minute drive from the suite yet it still feels secluded and out of the way.
We went for a great dinner at Atlas Cafe and really enjoyed shopping at the Edible Island Whole Foods Market.
We would definitely stay again!
