Thank you Henrie and Pat, for your kind and generous hospitality in making my stay at Mariner's Lookout so very conducive and comfortable.
You have a great location, good views, but most of all, a wonderful way of providing a tranquil and restful retreat - far from the crowd. Looking forward to seeing you in 2014. Merci beaucoup.
Thank you very much for making us feel welcome and at home at Mariner's Lookout! We really enjoyed the wonderful views - and all of beautiful Comox Valley during our one week stay. We'd love to come back and explore more of this wonderful island,
Thank you for this beautiful space. You were so accommodating and made us all feel welcome. We will be back to enjoy it in the future.
This has been an amazing place to stay. The location, the views, and the decor have all contributed to create a peaceful environment and enjoyment of nature. The thoughtfulness and kindness of Henrie and Pat has ensured we never forget our lovely stay, just wish it had been longer.
“It just doesn't get better than this...” 5 of 5 stars Every aspect of our stay was absolutely perfect! With the warm welcome from Henrie when we arrived, we knew we were going to feel right at home. It was something of a shock when we first entered Mariner's Lookout--I can honestly say I've never stayed in a place that was so well designed with top-of-the-line finishes and beautiful, tasteful decor. And, most importantly, it was immaculate--every surface and corner of the unit was perfectly clean. It was a wonderful stay, and I will definitely return as soon as possible. Thanks, Henrie!!!

Thank you Henrie and Pat for a delightful stay - love the view, the peace and quiet and the great space to relax. We will be back.
Well, here we were one year to the weekend since our first Valentine's visit, and it was just as great the second time around - this time with more eagles, gulls, heron, duck, and even a flying vulture. We found the same snow ridge where we got engaged last year on Mt. Washington and it was still buried in 20 ft. of snow. See you next year (we hope).
Thank you Henrie and Pat for the wonderful suite to spend our family Christmas. It's been a long time since we spent Christmas together in the valley. Your suite and hospitality made it all perfect.
Thanks again for providing us with such a lovely suite to return to each evening after our days exploring new places and visiting 'old haunts' in Courtenay and Comox. The serene atmosphere of Mariner's Lookout is a great fit with the natural beauty of the Comox Valley. We will certainly take both our many pictures and wonderful memories back Ontario and Nova Scotia to share with friends and family.
Thank you for the wonderful vacation spot to stay in. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit down Memory Lane, 38 years later. It is more beautiful than you can take in in a week. You have a great view and a great resting spot.
What a lovely spot you have - a great place to stay. The suite has a very relaxing atmosphere and you were very kind in offering vegetables from your garden (the beetroot was wonderful) and freshly baked muffins. We really enjoyed our stay in the Comox Valley - We went to Paradise Meadows trail, Oyster River trail, Lazo Road, and cycled along the Courtenay side of the bay (Waterfront Park?) and walked along the spit. Thanks for the trail advice.

Thank you very much for a lovely stay. We enjoyed ourselves immensely! It is so very relaxing here; the mountain/ocean view and your garden are unbeatable. Thanks for making our last days in Comox so special.

Mariner's Lookout hits all the right notes. The apartment we rented was beautifully designed and furnished. It was very clean may even be cleaner than my sister's house, (sorry Bev). The kitchen has everything needed to cook and bake, with a dining table that overlooks the water and mountains through the large and (again) clean windows. The bedroom is quiet and restful with luxurious bedding and comfortable pillows. In the apartment we were treated to several pieces of art on the walls, done by the host Henriette, who has an art gallery on the main floor of the building. The apartment is on the second story, and very close to the owners house, but separate, which allows privacy for both. I am an avid gardener and really enjoyed discussing plants and flowers with Henrie, yes, plants and some flowers in January! The hosts are well suited for this business, they are friendly and attentive while respecting our privacy. We stayed for 3 weeks and are already planning to return. My only word of caution is that the lore around Mariner's Lookout is that many couples have moved to Comox area after staying there....Read more

The Mariner's lookout is an enchanting getaway, perfect for the family or just for two. I found the location is spectacular with captivating grounds and a short jaunt to the goose spit beach. For the one's who love to shop it is a pleasant five minutes from the heart of Comox. All in all Mariner's lookout is the ideal getaway rental.
