We both wanted to move from busy jobs to a slower pace of life, closer to nature - and we found it here in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. We love spending our time on long walks on the beaches, skiing and snowshoeing on Mount Washington, taking in the vibrant local music scene, and sampling the Valley's superb dining venues.
Lucille Doucet & David Innes
David and Lucille purchased this house in 2006
We searched far and wide for the perfect location – ultimately our search took us to the beautiful Comox Valley in British Columbia where we fulfilled our dreams and surpassed our expectations. We love our house, and we love to share its joys and pleasures with others.
We savour the leafy green quiet and solitude of our location - yet we're only 5 minutes from Courtenay's charming downtown. Birdsong is always in the air. You can lie by the pool and watch eagles soar overhead or stroll nearby walking trails.
We had a wonderful holiday on the island and staying at La Pause was a perfect start to our vacation. The residence is lovely and was very private. We had several spaces where we could relax quietly and felt very at home here. David & Lucille understand perfectly how to treat their guests, with lots of special touches like the always available coffee bar, books to read, treats on the coffee bar and the most delicious breakfasts ever. You are treated so special here and feel very spoiled. I would highly recommend La Pause to anyone visiting the area. We would definitely come back again! Thank you again David & Lucille we loved chatting with you both!
David and Lucille went above and beyond to make our stay at La Pause very memorable. There are too many things we like about our stay. To list a few were picking fresh blueberries, swimming in their amazing pool, having fantastic breakfast by the pool side, sleeping in super comfortable beds...
the description fits perfectly and everything looks exactly like in the pictures, just beautiful. The place is well equiped and especially clean. Whenever we were in contact with the owners, they were very helpfull and friendly to us. We spend a perfect week in this beautiful home and would recommend it to everybody we know.
Our stay was so relaxing and enjoyable; we would reccommend this vacation rental to anyone looking to truly unwind and enjoy the place; we didn't really leave the yard, it was so nice. We will be back. Thank you David and Lucille for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful property!
One of the best self catering homes we have stayed in. Everything you could ever need, in a wonderful location. David and Lucille couldn't have been more helpful,and obviously spend a lot of time making sure everything is just right for their visitors. Very friendly town with plenty to see and do, would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing break.
Every detail, right down to the name, appears to have been carefully planned and selected to convey a sense of calm and relaxation from the moment you arrive at La Pause.
I was looking for a longer-term stay with my dog and had the opportunity to spend a month at La Pause. I had concerns that the space might be small for that length of time, but everything is so well laid out, I never felt constrained. The beautiful surroundings, lovely, quaint and pristine suite nicely decorated with some of David's photography, and the hosts' commitment to their guests' comfort were outstanding, and provided for a wonderful home as I waited for my own to be built.
David and Lucille could not have been more welcoming. Lucille's unexpected plate of homemade cookies and her thoughtfully prepared Easter Brunch personalized the experience even more. David was available to immediately problem solve some of my unique issues due to my travel needs, and always did so with a smile.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family visiting the Comox Valley at any time of year.
