The chef's kitchen is ready for you to take on your culinary experiments as you bring home tasty locally grown treats to experiment with complete with everything you might need including a convection oven and dishwasher. The bookshelves are filled with books and games making sure you have plenty of ways to entertain yourself and unwind or play Bocce outside on the vast lawns. From here you can explore the whole valley and all the foodie, outdoor or beach delights it has to offer. It is a central yet rural location not so far from city amenities without having to be stuck in a city in the heart of the Comox Valley. You are a mere 950 meters from Kitty Coleman Beach and Provincial Park, a beautiful walk down the road to this scenic water location, 20 minute bike ride from Seal Bay Park or a quick drive to Miracle Beach. Or stay on the farm, walk to the creek and sit on a bench under the old maple tree, visit with the donkeys or perhaps the lavender gardens for some 'aromatherapy'. This place has it all for you! Your hosts are onsite in a second home with a field and barn separating you. They are there if you need them but have lots of privacy.More

From there you can see Bald Eagles, whales, seals, seal lions and, sometimes Dals porpoises. This is quite a popular spot for salmon fishing. In Jan and Feb, you can hear the sea lions from the farm as they wait for their delicious feast of salmon returning to the sea from Kitty Coleman Creek. From here you are also a 10 minute, flat, bike ride to Seal Bay Park, a treasure in the valley. The K'ómoks Band named it Xwee Xwby Luq or “place of serenity and beauty.” The Island provides several bea...
