Photos show rooms as brighter than actual; small changes in furnishings have been made since photos were taken. Carport is more cluttered than in photo. The suite is clean and well cared for, but not updated, thus more affordable! Cabin like. As it is situated on the ground level, it is a bit cool--temperature wise. Bring a fleece or sweater.

Fran is 65, Dave is 55. We have been enjoying life together for over 30 years. In 2007, we left our home and jobs in Winnipeg and traveled around, visiting old friends and family, meeting new people, and volunteering. We stayed at hostels and on farms and retreat centres where we volunteered. After our travels that took us all the way to an organic hobby farm in Costa Rica, we found our new home in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. Four years later, Airbnb came into our lives. Thanks to Airbnb and hosting, we have been able to afford to stay in our Comox home, enjoying our simple life. Currently, we are recuperating from 2 intense years of managing the care of David's mother, and most days find us involved in some mix of catching up on home and yard care and clearing space by de-cluttering and re-organizing. All to prepare for our next adventure and just plain enjoying the simple life. We do a lot of food preparation because we eat only organic and make pretty much all of our own food and it can be challenging to keep up with ourselves. We enjoy short walks or bike rides, music, fibre arts, writing, reading, researching, and meeting new people. A dream we have is to live on a patch of land in the countryside. In the meantime, we are loving our lives in the wonderful little town of Comox by the sea on Vancouver Island.
HELPFUL TIP: It is wonderful that this platform is as well thought out as it is. If you have not already done so, please fill out your profile page including a clear picture of yourself and your travel companion if applicable. This allows us more of an introduction and makes a big difference. If this is not completed prior to contacting us, then take the time to introduce yourself in your first contact message when sending in an inquiry or booking request. We would like to know who is coming to our home. Please take the time to share more about yourself, job, interests and what you will be doing in the area while staying in our home. ( IF a couple is coming, then please include some wonderful things about your traveling companion as well as their full name).
