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!

Easter Weekend at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jacqueline and Rick. We had a great time at the Cottage. It was stocked with everything we need. Very convenient location. Enough outdoor space for the kids to play. We would love to stay at the Cottage again.

Perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this place justice! Beautiful inside, with a fantastic location. If anyone is looking for a place for visiting family, or are a visiting family to the Comox Valley, this is the place. So much nicer than any hotel!

Family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

A spacious home, conveniently located to shops and activities. There was plenty of space for our whole family - grandkids, parents and grandparents. We had groups heading off to the museum, the shops, the library or one of several parks and trails every day. This was our second time at the cottage and we would not hesitate to return for a third visit.

Better than home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is large enough for our family of grownups to settle in with our own space. We had people biking, hiking, kayaking(water too fast though) and studying. You can walk to town in about 3 minutes, there is a funny outdoor gym one minute away and a park and rec center a short walk also. The kitchen was well stocked in terms of equipment and Jacqueline kindly leaves tea and coffee makings. We were graciously granted a late check out. The home was very clean and had games and books. We would definitely do this again and we didn't even get to ski, due to poor conditions! There are many day hikes from this property, Nymph Falls, Seal Bay, and we went caving at Horne Lake Caves which was a fantastic outing(pay for the tour).

Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage! Was greeted by a beautiful Christmas Tree. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The cottage is comfortable and very charming! Views of the river are amazing with birds chirping in the morning, unusual for us coming from the cold prairies��. Loved the circle chair especially since I was under the weather with the flu for the holidays. Will be back ! Jacqueline was so accommodating when we asked to stay until 5pm day of our check out . Hope to be back next Christmas! If you have a chance to stay in Courtenay choose this beautiful cottage!

Courtenay River Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family. There was nothing that the owners didn't think of providing. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable. Overall it was a great home with a great view of the river, we were able to enjoy watching the seals in the water. It was close to town and an short walk from the home. I would definitely go back again.
