So, let’s explore how it feels to live on Vancouver Island, starting from your new home in Edgewood Estates.

What is it like to live in Comox?

On a beautiful summer day, you gently wake up and greet the day. Attached to your bedroom is your personal walk-in closet and ensuite, allowing you to take the time to care for yourself before entering the rest of the home.

After you are showered and dressed, you leave your room and quickly sneak some laundry into the machine. You think to yourself how convenient it is to have a dedicated laundry room so close to your bedroom as you walk towards the kitchen. Gone are the days of clothes piling on top of furniture.

As you enter the main living space, you see your spouse is in the kitchen preparing a delicious breakfast displayed on the white marble kitchen island. A plate is already waiting for you at the breakfast table, where you have a view of the fireplace from the open concept design. The home has soaring vaulted ceilings, making even the most mundane parts of your day feel more exciting and grand.

During your conversation over coffee, you see your teenager has finally joined the living from their bedroom downstairs. They have their own bathroom downstairs, so you can keep the main powder room clutter-free. Also in the basement is a full legal suite, which is currently rented out to generate some passive income. It is being rented by a couple of international students that are attending the nearby North Island College. In later years, it will be nice to have a place for your aging parents. Family is important to you, afterall.

After everyone has had a bite to eat, your spouse ducks into the study for a Zoom meeting, your teen heads out the door, and you decide to visit Goose Spit Park to catch the ocean breeze before heading to work. You have plans with your family to relax at Kye Bay’s sandy beach later in the day, but it doesn’t hurt to visit the ocean multiple times in one day. With the ocean surrounding Comox on three sides, it’s just too hard to pass up the opportunity to enjoy it when you can see it almost wherever you go.

Exploring Comox: things to do

On most days, you enjoy an evening stroll around the block with your spouse. Comox has a relatively low crime rate, so you feel much safer here than when you were living in Vancouver as a student at UBC. The high number of cul-de-sacs helps keep traffic at a minimum, too. You see plenty of greenery and natural treelines during your strolls.

When the inspiration hits, you extend your workout to the Comox Community Centre’s gym and many fitness classes. When the weather is fair (which is most of the year), your family enjoys riding their bikes, swimming in the ocean, or having a few rounds of pickleball at Highland Park.

Several home businesses help keep Comox neighbourhoods pristine. Your spouse works remotely from home, which makes it so much easier to plan trips and outings together. Other local businesses include massage and athletic therapists, reflexologists, and estheticians within walking distance of your home. You don’t feel the same sense of traffic congestion or pollution as in larger cities due to less people commuting.

The strong sense of community can be felt at the local farmers’ market, breweries, beaches, and general atmosphere. Comox feels like a small town but has access to a large number of amenities. Its sister city, Courtenay, is located on the western border and provides even more things to do.

At the end of the day, you are thankful that you were able to build your own piece of paradise in the Comox Valley, with help from the professionals at Ballard Fine Homes.
