About Karen Robinson

I was born and raised in Victoria and moved to the Comox Valley in 1994. I recently retired from the RCMP as a 911 Operator & Police Dispatcher. Prior to that I was a ski instructor on Mt Washington Alpine Resort. Speaking other languages has been a lifelong goal of mine and I've always loved meeting people from both Canada and abroad. Whenever I have traveled, locals have always treated me wonderfully and welcomed me into their lives. This inspired me to 'pay it forward'. It seemed only natural to have my own vacation rental so I could meet and help other vacationers enjoy their holiday in the Comox Valley.

Karen Robinson purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Karen Robinson chose Comox

The Roost, part of The Perch on Birch, is located on one of my favourite lanes in Comox. With the Comox Golf Course located at the end of the road leading to a lovely foot path and the many fauna that make Birch Ave their home, this location 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 of converting 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 apartment 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 Roost 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 with hassle-free parking.

Extremely quiet comfortable retreat - walkable to all amenities.

  • 5 of 5
All necessities plus many extras have been thought of and added to make a stay very! comfortable. Super clean with the bonus of a washer / dryer. Comox has beautiful scenery, a great many tasty eateries, tennis courts and a very good grocery store all within pleasant walking distance. Check out scenery @ Goose Spit & Holmes Point (just 2 of many! places if you have a car), eats @ Benino Gelato and Rocky Mountain Cafe (downtown) and Atlas Cafe in Courtney. What a paradise with a lovely hostess. Thanks ever so much!

The Roost-Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This 1 bedroom unit is perfect on so many levels. The location is so close to shopping, restaurants, hiking trails and all the action that goes on near the marina. The pictures and listing details are extremely accurate and in addition the owner is very knowledgeable and helpful about things to do in the area. She is friendly and easy to talk to.
I would recommend this accommodation any of my friends or any couple wanting to stay in a place with all the comforts of a home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review Stu. I'm glad you were able to get out and explore the nearby trails and the Comox marina; a favourite spot for me to watch the sunset with some take out sushi!. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope you'll come back again to experience many of the other great things the Comox Valley has to offer.

lovely apartment, clean, cozy

  • 5 of 5
Karen made sure the little extras were there, comfy housecoats, even slippers! She has the kitchen very well stocked with garbage bags, napkins, ziplock bags and saran wrap. When you are cooking in a new kitchen, those little things make it much easier. The bed had crisp, comfortable linens. Really handy to have a washer/dryer in the suite (better machines than we have at home!) She had a binder with recommendations of what to do in the area, including multiple printed copies of maps for the walking trails.....nice touch, we used one. The binder spelled out the 'rules' with contact numbers in case of trouble in the suite. We could barely hear any activity in the other suite, very good sound proofing. Location great, walked to the grocery store every day.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5
A nice 1 bedroom apt with everything I ever needed. Lovely decorated to make you feel right at home. Would come back any time. Owner was helpful and easy to talk with. We loved the Comox Road with great coffee, homemade goodies to enjoy. Went to the wharf to buy fresh fish to make a delicious supper at the apt. We loved the Atlas Cafe, Ships Ahoy Fish & Chips Takeout. Such a comfortable town to explore including Goose Spit.

Owner's Response: Thank you K & R for your excellent review. Comox really is a great holiday destination. Glad you were able to enjoy the fresh caught seafood from Fisherman's Wharf and of course the fresh baked goods from the local bakeries. I wish I had more vacancy so you could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the fine things Comox has to offer. I'll be heading to Ships Ahoy to try their fish & chips! I hope you will come back to The Perch on Birch again.

Good title.

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time we have used the VRBO site. The accommodation in Comox was excellent. Our unit had a large bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and a very nice living room area. There was a washer/dryer, ironing board in a closet area. The place was spotless with new furniture and nicely decorated. Very close to the airport and downtown.

Karen, the owner, was wonderful. Very attentive to our needs.

We will stay there again.

Comox gem!

What a gorgeous accommodation with all the creature comforts and in walking distance to shops, restaurants and the ocean. There's a lovely garden to sit in and enjoy a cool drink while taking advantage of the gas BBQ. The Roost is the perfect getaway!
