The Farmhouse On Whitaker Road is certainly perfect for everyone all year round. We decided to spend our first big family vacation in Courtenay and it could not have been better! We found The Farmhouse On Whitaker Road here on TripAdvisor and booked it immediately. Mariette and her husband made sure to prepare and arrange everything perfectly for our arrival....

Management response:

So nice to hear from you. Glad you trip has stayed with you all this time. Hope both of you and your pup are doing well.

We loved our vacation at the farmhouse. The house was cozy and clean. It had everything we could need and more. Lots to see and do on the farm for our kids. Peaceful and quiet. A much needed break from city life. We would definitely return.

About the neighbourhood
The impressive 26 acres neighbors Kitty Coleman Gardens and is a short walk (950 meters) from Kitty Coleman Provincial Park and Beach, which has it's own boat launch. The eastern portion of the park is home to a single majestic old-growth Douglas fir, estimated to be more than 500 years old. From there you can see Bald Eagles, whales, seals, seal lions and, sometimes Dals porpoises. This is quite a popular spot for salmon fishing. In Jan and Feb, you can hear the sea lions from the farm as they wait for their delicious feast of salmon returning to the sea from Kitty Coleman Creek.

From here you are also a 10 minute, flat, bike ride to Seal Bay Park, a treasure in the valley. The K'ómoks Band named it Xwee Xwby Luq or “place of serenity and beauty.”
