About The Owner

We have owned this unique property for 30 years and spent many wonderful summers and weekends here in our little cabin by the sea. In 2008 we removed the original structure and built a new house on our property. We feel so blessed to have this little piece of paradise and love sharing it with you our guests.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose British Columbia

This property is very unique as it is situated on a spit of land and has water on both sides of the property. One side faces the Marina with a view of the mountains and harbour. The other side of the property faces the easy access beach, which is great for exploring, launching a kayak, or swimming.

What makes this apartment unique

Very quiet, a great little community, and beautiful scenery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful 2 day stay. We came to relax and rest - we did just that. Your home was perfect for that. Next time we come, we will stay longer and experience more of your beautiful spot on a beautiful island. See you next year! Thanks for everything.

Blissful Beachfront Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this apartment. The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and has everything you need. We enjoyed sitting at the breakfast bar eating breakfast spotting harbour seals in the at the marina from the balcony window. Looking from another window you can see the beach. There is a lot to do in the area and within a short drive from Deep Bay.

The whole area is relaxed, peaceful and calming.

From our initial booking to the end of our stay, our hosts were extremely welcoming, efficient and friendly and suggested lots for us to do in the area.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to a couple looking for a relaxed, comfortable stay and I hope that my partner and I will have the opportunity for a return visit one day.

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a hidden gem and we absolutely loved it! The apartment itself is large, bright, very tastefully decorated, well stocked, and immacutely clean. The location and views are spectacular! The front deck looks over the harbour at Deep Bay, and the back patio is on the ocean - stunning! Excellent beachcombing when the tide is out and great bird watching. There is lots to see and do in the Courtenay/Comox area, as well as Campbell River - leisurely day trips to enjoy the beautiful oceanside route, also great wine tasting! The owners are lovely people and made our stay even more special.

Beachfront Bliss at Deep Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 5 night stay at Beachfront Bliss. Right from arrival the hosts were extremely welcoming and the waterfront location is amazing. The suite was exceptionally clean, very well appointed, with abundant natural light from the numerous windows that provided an unimpeded view of the marina and a view looking northwest down the strait between Vancouver Island and Denman Island. The owners are gracious and friendly hosts sharing information about local attractions, amenities and life on the beach. Fantastic spot to stay and enjoy a wonderful west coast experience. We appreciated the opportunity to stay at this beautiful getaway and are looking forward to another visit.

Seaside views and Nature getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Deep Bay penisula with views of the harbour on one side and the ocean on the other. We loved watching the birds and seals and enjoyed our long walks. The self contained one bedroom apartment is very modern and well appointed with all the conveniences. The hosts are very helpful and welcoming. We appreciated their understanding of changes to our travel plans due to closure of the ski resort due to lack of snow.
