Belle Vue Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 15 Courtenay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 December 2012

On our trips abroad we always try to find the best accomodations and "the unusual place to stay". We have to admit : during the many years of travelling our demands increased a lot. Belle Vue B&B surpassed our expectations.
You stay,sleep,relax and enjoy breakfast in an upscale, quiet and relaxed atmosphere.both hardware ( facilities ) and software ( service and friendliness ) wise. A great place to be!

We recently spent a most pleasant 2 nights in Pascha’s Room at Belle Vue B&B, just outside Courtenay, on an exquisite, oceanfront property. The lovely lawn and garden end right at the grasses at the edge of the beach, so the views from there and the house are marvellous.

There are several pieces of garden art and whimsy, in both the front and back gardens and lawns, to keep you smiling as you explore the property. And the amazing quietness was so wonderful … I heard cheery birds chirping and flitting about, and a woodpecker in the distance, and watched lots of gulls and water birds on the ocean swells.

Pascha’s Room is on the 2nd level, up a graceful curved staircase. It has a sliding glass door out to the shared balcony, with stunning views out over the beach, and beyond to Texada Island, and Powell River on the mainland. This is a large room, with very comfy bed with night tables and reading lamps (and phone and alarm clock), and a small window beside the bed, for extra daylight, and another view over the water.

The room has a considerable selection of books and board games on easy to see, open shelves, a TV, a wee games table with 2 chairs and a floor lamp, a vanity with stool and lamp, a large closet, and a bar fridge with instant coffee and tea fixings on top (plus mugs and drinking glasses), along with a basket of naughty chocolatey treats and crispy snax, and a variety of bottled water and soft drinks in the fridge.

The big, bright ensuite bathroom has a large, glass-doored, step-in shower (no tub) and a towel warmer, and a small stand beside the pedestal sink, to hold our toiletries (there’s a hair dryer provided).

And, always a treat for me who loves daylight, there are TWO windows (with privacy blinds), so there’s plenty of welcome natural light. The larger window is openable, to let in the refreshing sea air, and create a gentle cross-breeze when you open the sliding doors at the other end of the room (the bathroom’s openable window and the sliding balcony door in the room have screens).

Also, the morning sun streams in through that larger bathroom window, along with the sounds of the forested countryside, and that’s such a delightful way to start the day.

Although, an even better way to start the day than that, is with the splendid breakfast served by our very gracious and welcoming hosts, Heideh and Walter. We sat at the dining table, with its fabulous ground floor views over the beach. We really enjoyed the yummy meal and excellent coffee and Haideh’s superb home made juices, along with the wonderful conversations, and the glorious views.

I highly recommend Belle Vue B&B for its quiet, countryside, water’s edge location with lovely gardens and beach access, and for the delicious breakfast, and for Haideh and Walter’s friendly, gracious hospitality.

It was a great review that lead us to the Belle Vue in the first place so I hope we can influence others. The place far exceeded our expectations. As soon as we arrived you could feel your gears changing to a nice easy pace. The surroundings and sound of the waves just demand it. Our hosts Walter Haideh (as well as Tip and Pocos the dogs) were just great. They provided just enough input and guidance to make you feel at home and enough space and privacy to make you feel that you were away. We enjoyed soaking in the hot-tub on a cold rainy fall day as well as beach combing after a day of storm watching. Don't wait for the summer as we had a fabulous time on a stormy weekend. The food was good enough to require a whole other review. We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view and all seemed equal.

The hosts, Haideh and Walter, did not lead us astray with their recommendations for things to do and see or restaurants, or directions to/from the B&B to these sites. Coming from the grid-pattern prairies, we appreciated the simple and efficient directions contained on the slips of paper the hosts provided. Delicious breakfasts, the home's beautiful setting, gorgeous views from dawn to dusk, and the comfortable bedroom made our stay very pleasurable. Enjoyable conversions with Haideh and Walter was icing on the cake. Only too late did we find out Walter has an amazing singing voice - an excuse for a return visit.

We love the location of Belle Vue B&B, that's really why we bought the place, but it is off the beaten path, about 15 minutes from both Courtenay and Comox. Because of this we decided to write out directions for restaurants and the many great places to visit and things to do here. It's great to hear back that our to and from slips of paper really do make it easier for our guests to explore and experience this wonderful part of Vancouver Island.
As for Walter's singing, he keeps practicing, and loves an audience!

We spent 2 wonderful days a stones throw of the beautiful, peaceful beach. Our suite was great with a full array of amenites.The breakfasts were delicious. The hosts were very gracious with an excellent knowledge of the area. The restaurant they recommended for dinner was world class. We will return, no question.

Very nice hosts with excellent local knowledge. The rooms are comfortable with sliders out to the deck, and the view of the mountains with all that water in the foreground makes me want to just hang out all day. On the other hand, Walter recommended some great hikes and a scenic drive so we went exploring. Awesome breakfast, too - you may as well plan on skipping lunch.

Thank you again!
Just want to mention that some of our guests have given us 4 circles for location. We are a bit tucked away. Very true. Please feel free to call and we will be happy to guide you in, our website has driving information from most directions, and GPS may need our postal code (V9J1W9).

Wow, a room with a view to recharge the most tired body. Although we had the smallest room we were rewarded with the best view. The breakfasts served were not only extremely delicious and nutritious the presentation was top notch. Our hosts were most gracious and warm and did their best to help us enjoy our stay by suggesting both activities and places to dine. We followed up on their suggestions and were not disappointed. Only problem we encountered was the shortness of our stay, wish it could have been longer and plan on making a return trip.

Room Tip: "Seth" room may be the smallest but it has the best view. Excellent choice for us.
