About Tom and Linda Doylend

Hi, Greetings from Tom and Linda.

We have lived in the Comox Valley for 27 years and are now retired. Our children have grown up and have families of their own. Courtenay is a great town and we never tire of living in this beautiful valley. Living close to the ocean, mountains, rain forest and everything Vancouver Island has to offer makes our part of the world a very special place. A great day begins with a hike in the mountains or sitting calmly by the sea, watching the tide come in. Here on the island we have some of the best salmon fishing and whale watching in the world. What's not to love about it?

Tom and Linda Doylend purchased this apartment in 1990

The perfect place to stay in Courtenay

  • 5 of 5

We were in Courtenay visiting our daughter and family. We are lucky that we found this wonderful suite to call home for two weeks. It is very clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. Tom and Linda have thought of everything to make their guests feel at home. The unit is nicely decorated with Linda's own artwork -- she is a talented lady!

The gardens are beautiful; we enjoyed watching a few hummingbirds as well as a multitude of other birds in the mountain ash outside the window. The suite is located on a quiet residential street but close to shopping and other attractions in Courtenay and Comox. I would recommend it for anyone -- a single, a couple, or a small family.

Truly our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Linda were wonderful, caring and always concerned we were satisfied and had everything we needed. The Garden Suite was immaculate, comfortable and had more than we expected. It was lovely to sit in the garden watching the hummingbirds and to appreciate the hard work Linda put into it. We hope we can stay at the Garden Suite on our next visit to Courtenay. Thank you Tom and Linda for making our visit so comfortable.

Super rental. Great Hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The cozy garden suite was extremely well equipped and immaculate. Very well thought out. It was cool and quiet and the garden access was lovely. It was an extremely comfortable and cozy place to stay as the name suggests and spacious enough for us to have a family of four to tea. Tom and Linda were lovely and great hosts.

I would highly recommend this rental.

The City of Courtenay is located on central Vancouver Island in the heart of the Comox Valley. This is a beautiful place with the Beaufort Mountains to the west and the Georgia Straits to the east.

The climate in the valley is temperate with mild winters and long warm summers.

The mild climate allows for an extended growing season and very lush plant life.

This is a place where golfing, skiing and fishing can all be done on the same day.

The Comox Valley is renowned for events such as the Filberg Arts and Crafts Festival and the Vancouver Island Music Fest.
