Charming 2-bedroom cottage near beach, trails and shopping
About Donna Derrien
This is my second vacation rental in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. After the success of my first, I had to do it again. This property is in its fourth year and proving to be very popular. I have lots of returnees. I have very consciously focused on making this space family-friendly, a place where you can put your feet up and not worry about the kids breaking anything. Everything is very comfortable, clean and well-thought-out, with nothing priceless or irreplaceable. I so love introducing people to our little slice of paradise, the Comox Valley. From outdoor activities to arts and culture, the Comox Valley has it all.
Donna Derrien purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Donna Derrien chose Courtenay
This property, with beautiful ocean views, has a unique location adjacent to the beach, a bird sanctuary, creek, walking trails, and several kilometers of sandy beach at low tide. The fenced back yard boasts several distinct and separate areas for relaxing, playing and socializing. Across the street you can access the nature trails and Courtenay Riverside Walkway. This property is ideal for those who want to be close to nature and yet have all amenities nearby, who like to be active outdoors and yet have a private place to relax indoors or out. Or for someone who wants to avoid renting a car. Bikes are included!.

Home away from home
Loved being so close to the ocean! Very homey, and had absolutely everything you needed. Thanks!
Great Holiday accomodations !
This Unit was everything we expected from the photos. It had every amenity that you could possibly need. . But what was not expected, but oh so appreciated, was the kindness and personal service by the landlady and her husband. By the middle of our month long stay, we felt we had new friends in Courtenay, B.C.
Vancouver Island is a beautiful place with many wonderful things to see and visit. This unit is central to many of the highlights available on Vancouver Island. Our vacation was marvelous.
A wonderful place to stay
A wonderful place to stay. A beautiful house at a beautiful location. The house has every imaginable item for use and is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing view of the ocean.
Great view, comfortable home, lovely host.
This home was very comfortable, well stocked, easy to stay in. The kids had a blast with all the toys and the airhockey table, and we had a great time looking our the livingroom window at the beautiful view. Great location. While it is close to Courtenay, the forest and trails inbetween keep the neighbourhood very quiet. We’ll definitively stay there again. Our host was very accommodating with arrival time, check-out time and just generally gave us a sense of relaxation; a good holiday! It was a little early in the year to spend much time in the garden but I look forward to staying there again when it is in full bloom. Thank you!
We will return
A nice home with a cool and funky vibe. Beautiful views and perfect for out ski vacation.
It only takes 32 minutes to get to Mount Washington and right on the ocean. The owners pretty much think of everything including a baby care kit (we have none) and a doggy love kit (yes we do)
Tons of what you need in the kitchen and everything else for a relaxing stay. Books and games - fantastic views and even an air hockey table.
The beds are very comfortable and everything was super clean.
The owners are excellent and very helpful and accommodating.
