WATERFRONT GUEST HOUSE, SANCTUARY ON THE ESTUARY, LOOKOUT VIEW

Comox Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Centrally located on Comox Rd., considered the ‘Dyke’ road by locals… and connecting Courtenay to Comox, the Waterfront Guesthouse offers a spectacular 280 degree view of the Comox Valley Estuary and the Beaufort Mountains; featuring ‘Queneesh’ the native name given to the valley’s famous Comox Glacier.

… watch in awe as the tides change from a full water landscape… where seals frolic and families of ducklings travel and fish the shores, to a ‘land before time’ where sometimes hundreds of seagulls rest and sun on the mud flats. Eagles, herons and numerous other birds of curiosity make this area a daily stopover…as the Bird Sanctuary is located within walking distance, a few minutes west, toward Courtenay.

… and it’s a kayaker’s paradise…put in right at your doorstep. Explore the Comox Bay, make the trip to Tree Island…or just take a relaxing float up the river. When the tide is up you can travel up through Lewis Park, a local swim hole. Just go a little further and you might spot some eagles patrolling the river for salmon or just sitting in the trees there. On your way back, dock at the Air Park; have an ice cream or a bite to eat at the Park Café. Or you might want to stretch your legs and take in the magnificent views from the walkway; a 1.8 km walk around the Courtenay Airpark. Try an evening walk sometime….you’ll be amazed at the sunsets...

The Waterfront Guest House is the penthouse level of a two level property. Explore an array of color on the ground floor, where you'll find Brenda and her newly ronovated Stained Glass workshop and gallery 'Glass Expressions'. Check out the 'Waterfronts'views from the upper outdoor porch or inside from the sitting and dining areas where you'll find wall to wall windows.

Enjoy a Logfire, (wood supplied), read a book, or play some family board games in a comfortable, easy going atmosphere. The living room has a 36 inch TV, a DVD player with some popular movie selections as well as a cd player. The comfy beds are both queen-size and well appointed. The kitchen has all the pots and utensils available for West Coast cooking, as well as a barbecue on the deck for an outdoor experience. Little extras like spices and condiments and various cooking items are supplied for your convenience and enjoyment.

Great view but a very busy road outside spoils the location. Lots of outdoor activities in the area make this a good place to visit. Friendly and helpful owners.

Owner's Response: Thanks Corinna for your comments. We do appreciate that the daytime hours can be busy for local traffic as we are located on one of the roads that connect the Town of Comox to the City of Courtenay.
Having said that, we find that the general comments from our guests have been quite positive; that the evening traffic slows considerably. The experience that seems to resonate is an atmosphere of serenity with a view of landscape and wildlife that is both beautiful and unique, even to our Comox Valley.

Step in and feel at home

We stayed at this perfect place for 4 rainy and stormy days in late October while salmon fishing in the Puntledge and absolutely did not want to leave. We felt at home right from the time we steped in this cozy apartment. The estuary view from the large windowfront on 3 sides is breathtaking and you feel like on a boat. The nights storm winds knocking at the walls made us appreciate this warm and charming place even more - it was so good to get "back home" after a day fishing. The kitchen contained really everything you could imagine, bring in your fresh groceries, the rest is already provided. We recommend this place to everybody and cant wait to be back.

My family and I really enjoyed staying at the Waterfront Guesthouse. The owners were very kind and eager to help us in every way possible. The house was comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed including shampoo in the shower and laundry detergent with the machines. The view was SPECTACULAR! We could not get enough of watching the Canada geese, sea otters,sea planes and the Comox glacier right outside our windows. We were able to walk on the beach when the tide was out and easily traveled all around the area by car (I highly recommend a trip out to the beach at Goose Spit). We were aware from checking Google maps that the house is on a busy road. You will hear traffic noise but in our opinion this was a minor annoyance compared to all the wonderful good points about this place. We'd stay there again without thinking twice.
