About The Owner
I returned to my hometown of Courtenay from Victoria to be near my large extended family and to enjoy a simpler lifestyle which includes gardening, biking, rafting on the Puntledge River and spending time relaxing in our porch and gardens. I am passionate about dancing including Latin, Ballroom, Swing and Salsa with my husband and wonderful network of dance friends.
Favorite places we travel are Vancouver Island, Europe and Mexico where we have enjoyed great stays at VRBO properties. It's a pleasure to host guests from Canada and all over the world at blueberry cottage and chocolate cottage, our two private Vacation Rentals By Owner in Courtenay.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
Why The Owner chose Courtenay
The location is so private and peaceful, yet so convenient to downtown Courtenay's vibrant shopping and dining. Just a short walk to parks and the Riverway Trail on the stunning Comox Estuary. Close to golfing, kayaking, swimming and boating and just a 30 minute drive to Mt. Washington Alpine Resort for skiing, snowshoeing & hiking.
This cozy one level home (handicap accessible) has a private garden, fenced deck, lounge chairs and BBQ.
Decorated with an eye to detail in shades of chocolate, red and mango, with a mix of vintage and modern furnishings.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We are so glad we could spend our first Canadian vacation at your lovely Chocolate Cottage. We will remember it as our "home". Thanks so much for telling us the magic river place where we loved to swim in the mornings & evenings. Thanks also for your recommendations about Mt. Washington hiking, The Gourmet Trails Tour and Miracle Beach.
We had such a relaxing and joyful time here. We enjoyed so much having breakfast in the garden & barbeque on the porch in the evening. Love the apple tree - made 3 pies :)
