About Kim and Craig Waite

This has been a dream of ours! We bought this beautiful property in 2013 and we love it here! We have resided in the beautiful Comox Valley since 2011 and have always searched for that perfect piece of water front. We were so happy to find our house and even happier to see the potential of Gartley Cottage.

We look forward to meeting you!

Cute, Quaint, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at the Gartley Cottage and it was just as nice the second time around. Cute and quiet, this was perfect for our mountain bike trip to the area. Great area and beach for your doggie.

Lovely winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gartley cottage was exactly what we were looking for - great location for walks, exploring, shops and restaurants. It was quiet and had everything we needed. Nice little neighbourhood. It worked well for our pups as well. A pretty little spot, especially in the snow!

Cute cottage

  • 3 of 5

Cute cottage, very basic but cozy and open plan. The second bedroom doesn't have a door but it was fine and the beds were comfy so that's more what matters to me. The cottage isn't beach front which the photo's kind of led us to believe (and it says beachfront on vrbo). It's located behind the owners house in a driveway so we kind of felt like we were in a fishbowl when cars went by. Unfortunately we thought we were going to be beach front with more privacy. The cottage is closer to the road side and you have a wee view of the ocean if you look past the truck and cars and shed in between two houses. I was too uncomfortable to use the fire pit in front of their house so that was also disappointing. My visa was comprised during our stay and so I had to pay e-transfer which kim was very understanding about. She left us some homemade wine which was nice.

Very different view

  • 3 of 5

The place was fine. Good location, well equipped and spacious. But the view was disappointing--very different from what they show you online. There's also no privacy for the second room (no door). But overall, it was good value for the money.

The beach combing at Gartley beach is exciting. There is the Kingfisher Resort and Spa located 2 km away you can walk the beach or go on trail hikes. We are close to the Royston ship wrecks and a short distance to kayak rentals and all amenities Courtenay has to offer. The property is peaceful, and a beautiful place to stay.
