About Jacqueline Pizzey

I love the outdoors and enjoy finding new discoveries in and around Courtenay!

My favorite things to do would be cross country skiing on Mount Washington, hiking & walking the trails by Nymph Falls!

Jacqueline Pizzey purchased this house in 2011

Why Jacqueline Pizzey chose Courtenay

This river-front property is a rare find. It was constructed in 1936, renovated and expanded in 1992. Then we again renovated and decorated in 2011/12. The cottage's quaint charm is refreshing in its idyllic location. You can feel something peaceful about the cottage as you relax and enjoy the river-view through its large windows.

From past guests' comments and reviews, this cottage seems to be exactly the type of stay everyone is looking for!

What makes this house unique

It's wonderful. You can swim, fish, hike, bike, walk, ski or relax with a book or a movie. It has something.. for anyone!

Come enjoy yourself. We know you will want to come back!

Any questions? Please ask!

Owner's Response: Brenda, it was so nice to see you and your husband relaxing, enjoying the peace of the cottage and the antics of the robin who was trying to come inside the house to nest! I hope that the rest of your vacation was wonderful. Come again :)

Christmas Stay

My family and I stayed at the cottage over our Christmas break. The cottage was extremely comfortable and very clean, with lots of space for us and great access to the town's amenities. Would definitely recommend to others and hope to return in the future!

Excellent house with every conceivable extra. We'll decorated and full of character and a 2minute walk to downtown restaraunts. Quiet and peacefull with seals on the river just at the back of the house to keep you entertained. Good places to eat such as Atlas and the Union Street Grill all within a brief walk.

Our stay at your delightful cottage during the Vancouver Island Music Fest was absolutely wonderful. The accommodation was quiet and comfortable and so well equipped. We couldn't have asked for a better location Just a short stroll to downtown and easy access to the cool and inviting river. It was a memorable time had by all and we are already planning for another stay next year. Thank you so much.
