Private Comox Accommodation - Lovely gardens-Walk to Restaurants, Shops & Marina
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
The Roost, part of The Perch on Birch Vacation Rental, 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.

Our Home away From Home!!
Thank you so much for staying at my property. Cheers!
This beautiful suite is clean and comfortable. There is everything you would need from a home away from home. The location is perfect, within walking distance of shops and restaurants and in a very quiet area. Karen was the perfect host and very helpful with directions and recommendations about what to see in the area. Her gardens were lovely and it is nice that there is seating in the yard to enjoy. I would most certainly recommend this accommodation to friends and family, and I can't wait for my return. I had the most wonderful week there!
Thank you Erin for your very gracious review. I am so happy you had a wonderful stay. It is very important to me my guests find my property to be clean and comfortable. I enjoyed seeing you taking advantage of the outdoor seating area in the gardens. You always looked so relaxed in this peaceful setting. I look forward to your return!
A little piece of heaven
This a well equipped, tastefully decorated home surrounded by a beautiful garden. We toasted our 60th wedding anniversary in the side garden with the wine left by our host Karen. A memorable stay in a lovely town with so many things to see and do. Sad to leave.
Clare & Isabel
Thank you for your lovely review Clare & Isobel. I'm glad you were able to enjoy a toast to your amazing 60 years of marriage in the garden. A special thank you for the lovely acrylic painting you did of my Perch on Birch sign. It will be treasured! I am also sad to see you go. Happy Trails!
We loved our stay at The Roost, exploring the local trails, enjoying the restaurants, marveling at the picturesque views, and soaking in the friendly vibes of Comox. Karen, our innkeeper, made us feel right at home.
Thank you for your lovely review T & A. I am so glad you can feel at home when you are away from home. It was lovely to meet you. I hope you will come back again.

Thank you Doris & Ted, for your lovely review highlighting your favourites about the Perch. I enjoy hearing about all of your outdoor activities and jealous that you find such beautiful weather skiing and snowshoeing on Mt. Washington!! It will be lovely to have you back in the summer.

Just 3 blocks from the Filberg Lodge open year round to view the botanical gardens and location of annual Filberg Festival. The Farmer's Market held Saturdays is a must see. Purchase fresh seafood right from the fishing boats at the marina. Pickup your fresh produce from nearby Seiffert's vegetable farm. Enjoy walking the sandbars at nearby beaches. Drive to Mt Washington to hike alpine meadows in the summer and snow sports in the winter.
