About Karen Robinson

I was born and raised in Victoria and moved to the Comox Valley in 1994. I retired from the RCMP as a 911 Operator & Police Dispatcher in 2010. Prior to that I was a ski instructor on Mt Washington Alpine Resort. Speaking other languages has been a lifelong goal of mine and I've always loved meeting people from both Canada and abroad. Whenever I have traveled, locals have always treated me wonderfully and welcomed me into their lives. This inspired me to 'pay it forward'. It seemed only natural to have my own vacation rental so I could meet and help other vacationers enjoy their holiday in the Comox Valley.

Karen Robinson purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Karen Robinson chose Comox

The Roost, part of The Perch on Birch, is located on one of my favourite lanes in Comox. With the Comox Golf Course located at the end of the road leading to a lovely foot path and the many fauna that make Birch Ave their home, this location is somewhat of a haven. I have always made a point of passing by this property on my walks since 2003, each time thinking it would make a great rental property. When the property came up for sale in 2011, I did not hesitate to purchase it. After much hard work, my dream of converting two of the units into beautiful vacation rentals has been realized. The gardens are now looking beautiful as I continue to transform this once neglected property into a lovely Comox gem.

What makes this apartment unique

Although Comox Vallley is not a large city, it boasts some of the finest restaurants offering many delicious cuisines. Having several of these restaurants in walking distance makes for a wonderful outing while staying at The Roost at The Perch on Birch.

The Comox Airforce Base is used by the famous Snowbirds every April. Some of their incredible patterns can be viewed right from the rental property. This is the perfect place to stay during Vancouver Island Music Festival held every July as you are steps away from the bus stop and a few minutes drive to the shuttle bus parking lot.

The annual Filberg Festival and Comox Nautical Days held every August long weekend (BC Day) are just a few blocks away. This makes it ideal for guests to enjoy the festivities in a carefree manner with hassle-free parking.

Comox Roost

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Roost. It was a pleasure to meet our friendly host, Karen, who has created a peaceful garden oasis in downtown Comox. Karen was welcoming, helpful, informative and made us feel at home.The Perch on Birch, a block away from the Comox Golf Course, is within walking distance to all amenities. A short distance away are Filbert Park, the Brooklyn Creek Trail, many good restaurants, the Driftwood Mall, downtown shops and the marina.

The Roost is a comfortable, well appointed suite in a beautiful setting. A perfect base to explore all that Comox, Courtenay and the Comox Valley have to offer.

quiet self contained retreat

  • 5 of 5

once again we enjoyed our stay, this time in the Roost. Suite is quiet, well equipped for self catering and relaxing in the evenings. Good location, within a block of a grocery store and liquor store and a few blocks to a range of coffee shops and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I am glad you found the Roost to be well equipped and a great place to relax, especially after snow shoeing & skiing in the significant snowfalls on Mt. Washington. I am so happy you came back again and look forward to your return this summer. It really is the perfect location to take in both winter & summer activities. Cheers!
