Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Located in a rural area, on a point of land surrounded on three sides by Baynes Sound. House is a block away from the ocean. A conservation area is a short walk away. There are no street lights here, so in the evening you can see the stars really well. Very quiet area with a high proportion of retirees. There is a pub, corner store and gas station within a five minute drive away in Buckley Bay. Grocery stores and malls are a 30 minute drive away in Courtenay. We are located halfway on Vancouver Island on the east side of the island. A day trip to
the furthest point is only 3 hours drive and by the ocean the whole way.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

The Comox Valley has more artists per capita than any other region of Canada. Drive anywhere and you will see signs welcoming you into their homes and studios. Fanny Bay is also source of the world-famous Fanny Bay oysters and you can purchase them fresh from the oyster farms. Our First Nation culture is present in beautiful art forms, language, dance and community and thrives on the whole island.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Our big garden is full and lush! Depending when you come 45 roses may be in bloom. Play in the garden if you wish or sit back with a glass of wine and watch it grow. If you're feeling creative the art studio is stocked with supplies and canvases. The fully equipped workshop and a supply of craft wood is yours to enjoy too. Take the car for a long drive down the island coast or a day trip to many beautiful natural attractions on our island. Lily, our cat cat is affectionate, playful and a source of much amusement.
There are no special rules here. It's a home away from home. We know you'll treat it like your own and feel it's yours for the time you are here.
