Self contained studio attached to our home close to beautiful beaches!
Hi I’m Mark! My wife and I have lived in the valley for over 13 years after moving from Victoria to our half acre property with an amazing garden just one block from the ocean! When I’m not working at my day job at the Comox airport you will find me enjoying time with my wife or out in my boat fishing and enjoying the amazing scenery while waiting for the bite to begin.
Why Mark chose Courtenay
Our house is beautiful and comfortable, our yard is amazing and I take pride in keeping it looking that way. Bonus, we are only a short walk to a great beach with an amazing view of the Hecate Straight, Powell River and the coastal mountains.
What makes this Studio unique
Our neighbourhood is flat which is great for biking and walking. We are in a semi rural neighbourhood so hardly any traffic. Lots of wildlife sightings, blue herons roost in our trees, there are 2 pairs of bald eagles that nest and fish in the neighbourhood. We have great horned owls, hummingbirds, and you will always see seals and sea lions when at the beach.

Enjoyed my stay! Clean room, comfortable bed, Littke extras supplied, close to the ocean.. would highly recommend this place!
Our hosts were very welcoming. The suite was clean and comfortable and we loved being so close to the beach. It really was the peaceful getaway we needed.
Our stay in Courtenay
We thoroughly enjoyed our two/day stay in your guest suite. The neighborhood was quiet and close to the beach, and the suite was very comfortable. We’ll be back.
Great getaway spot
We spent 5 nights here while attending a family reunion in Comox. The unit is very clean, and the location is VERY quiet. The king size bed was just like being at home it is so comfortable. With cooler weather it would have been nicer to have the use of the propane fireplace. The fresh fruit, snacks, coffee/tea and bottled water was a nice touch.
Correcting a few minor inconveniences (small shower, no business news channel on the television, spotty/slow internet access) would make this a 5 star. We would stay there again.
Clean, quiet, close to beach
This little suite was just perfect for us. It was clean, nicely appointed, and like a two minute walk to the nearby pebble beach where we saw sealions, many sea birds including a blue heron, and met many friendly people and their dogs! The details truly let you know that Marilyn and Mark care about your stay; ie having snacks like little bags of chips and fresh fruit, top quality super soft toilet paper, toiletries for just in case, foaming hand wash, etc. It was cozy and home-like but the tidyness and amenities were that of a fine hotel. We are a couple that stayed overnight before a day of skiing, and it was perfect for us (might be too cozy for more than two people). We would definitely stay again!
Super comfortable, quiet, near everything
Couldn't have been a nicer place to stay! Highly recommended.
