About Karen Robinson

I was born and raised in Victoria and moved to the Comox Valley in 1994. I retired from the RCMP as a 911 Operator & Police Dispatcher in 2010. 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 Valley

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.

The Roost was great...

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a weekend away for some adventure fun and the Roost provided a nice little 'base camp' for our activities. Although we did not get to meet Karen in person, she ensured the directions to access the property were clear. It was clean and comfortable. Thanks for a great little weekend away, Michelle and Kris.

A gem indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Small but well thought out, with everything (and more) that one could think of, plus a great location. Short walk to Comox Avenue shops and restaurants (enjoyed Monday pasta nights at Toscano's), supermarket, Marina and many trails. Easy to book and Karen very helpful. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments M & J. I appreciate you taking the time to write your very informative review. I am glad you could take advantage of the close proximity to shops, restaurants and trails. It was so fun to have your little grandson give me the grand tour and a real pleasure to meet you all. We're off to Toscano's next Monday thanks to you! Please come back again.

A gem

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at The Roost. Karen was a perfect host -- accommodating and clear in all of her communications with us. And the place really beat all of our expectations. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable, tranquil, outfitted with everything you might need...really, just perfect. The pictures give you a sense but they don't fully convey how sweet this rental is. We hope to be back again soon!
