Beautiful walking and bike trails are right outside, along with a Nature Park a few minutes walk away. Solo travelers will feel secure in this quiet, friendly neighbourhood.

For convenience, our valued Guests can enjoy self check in with pin pad lock. Free parking is reserved for you on the driveway. Garage storage for golf clubs, bikes, kayaks, skis, etc. can be arranged with the host, just message us.
There are no stairs or steps on the property, except a small sill to step over as you enter the cottage.
Guests will have private access to the pond, waterfall, and gardens around the cottage. It's lovely to sit outside with a coffee/glass of wine and relax by the sound of the waterfalls and 2 streams that flow into the large pond. Enjoy a quiet, private oasis with large trees and many species of birds.
We will always respect your privacy, and please know we are always available to answer any questions or help plan activities. Sorry, no pets/animals allowed.

Other things to note
Island Star is for non-smokers only as smoking/vaping of any kind (including marijuana) is not permitted in the cottage or anywhere on the property - unfortunately it is due to health concerns of the hosts & family. Island Star Cottage needs to remain a smoke-free environment, both in the cottage and on the property. Thank you very much for your understanding.

Location

Courtenay, British Columbia, Canada

We are centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood right on the edge between Courtenay and Comox. We are in Courtenay, but if you cross the street you are in Comox. Another bonus - we are a 35 minute drive to world-class skiing, mountain biking and hiking on Mt. Washington and surrounding area.
What makes us special is our central location where everything in Courtenay or Comox is only minutes away, including Costco and wineries! :) It's ideal for planning all your activities or just staying put if relaxation is all you require. Perhaps you are visiting family but there is no room at their place. We are happy to provide you a beautiful space to come home to at night.
