About this listing

Beautiful, bright room with queen size bed. Walk-in closet with lots of storage space (and on-the-floor single mattress for additional guest/child if needed). Adjacent to bathroom with full bath.

Room subject to family uses so please ask before booking.

The space

Beautiful 50-year old home stylishly decorated with mid-century modern-country notes. Cool in the summer, warmed by a fireplace in the winter. Your room also has an electric "fireplace" that makes it cozy even in the midst of fall and winter storms (great south facing window to watch the weather from).

If this room is booked, please check the availability of another Air BnB room in the house, at

Guest access

Guests may access the general living area in the house, including kitchen and a stylish living room. A large backyard garden features several "rooms" where you can get away from it all.

Interaction with guests

My office is in-home, and I am often in and out during the day. As the region's primary food writer I am thrilled to offer insights and suggestions on where to dine, access to local food venues (markets, farm stands, etc), and special events. On occasion I will host cocktail parties and guests are welcome to be part of the festivities.

Other things to note

I work with many of the local food businesses in the region, and I write about food in the area. You can read my blog at (URL HIDDEN) and follow my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page, Eating & Drinking in the Comox Valley at (URL HIDDEN)

Like to dance? I'm also very involved in the (very active) social dance community here in the Comox Valley. If you're interested in tango Argentino, West Coast Swing, Salsa, or Ballroom I can connect you to what's going on (we have a busy weekly dance calendar!).

Sorry to have to cancel Danielle. That room is in use by a family member and I'd forgotten to remove it from AirBnB. I'm glad you found alternate accomodations.

Hans is a wonderful host and the house is immaculate! We have a wonderful room right beside a private bathroom. There were even housecoats available for our use! The bed was very comfortable and there was a wonderful electric fireplace that provided beautiful ambiance and as much extra heat as we wanted on the cool rainy days!

I had a wonderful stay at Hans' place and would highly recommend this listing! He was very accommodating and welcoming! The house and the garden are beautiful and Fatso the cat and his friendly ways were definitely a great addition to the experience. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood not far away from the center of Courtenay which made getting around simple and easy!

Hans was a great host, very welcoming and helpful, which I appreciated greatly as this was my first visit to the area. I stayed in the downstairs room with adjacent bathroom which worked out perfectly for me as I had everything I required, and I was made to feel at home in every way. Hans even invited me to one of his soiree's, which was great fun with a really interesting group. Thank you for a great visit and intro to Courtenay Hans!
