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 Comox Valley

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 or on the cedar deck.

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!

Lovely Home with Plenty of Space

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful large clean home in the heart of Courtney. We went to visit family and to go snowboarding and skiing only a very short distance away. This home had everything you could ever imagine and nothing was left out. My favourite was the toilet seat. I quickly came home and ordered one myself. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay.

A Most Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Location was excellent for our needs. The house was very well and thoughtfully appointed. Owner was friendly and helpful (including following up with an item we left behind) but not intrusive. A great stay! Highly recommended.

A surprising gem.

  • 5 of 5

What a joy. This home truly has a warm inviting ambience. The warm wood floors lend a sense of heritage and hominess. The owners have thought of every detail in the kitchen and bathrooms. A real delight and a perfect access to other town and hill! Thank you!

What an amazing gem and a quaint environment, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Super ideal location to enjoy both the slopes of Mt. Washington and many little venues and shopping of Courtney. But really the best part is the fantastic home - not only do you have everything you need, the little touches like the warm towel racks, binoculars to check out the wildlife, the free wifi and games, and a fully stocked kitchen made it feel so warm and inviting - like it was a home away from away. And ps. The owners are awesome to deal with too. 5+++ in our opinion! Thanks for the amazing memories!

Nicely updated cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our needs. We had 5 adults staying to attend a funeral. The living area was large enough that we could have another 7 or 8 spend a few hours together one evening. The kitchen was well equipped. The home has real character and we loved it.
