About John and Sue Twose

We live next door to the Beach House (the 2 houses are on the same property, but private to each other) and look after all our bookings and deal with our guests directly. We are originally from the UK and emmigrated to Canada in 1992 where we lived in Alberta for 10 years before moving out to the coast!

John and Sue Twose purchased this house in 2007

Why John and Sue Twose chose Fanny Bay

Buckley Bay Beach House is a great spot to have a holiday, whether it is just for a quick week end or for a week or more - there is so much to see and do in the area. It is perfectly located to explore central and northern Vancouver Island.

If you like hiking, golfing, skiing, boating, kayaking, biking, swimming, fishing, beach combing, caving, mountaineering etc (the list goes on) - this is the place to be!

What makes this house unique

Waterfront, on an acre of land, private location. Courtenay and Comox are just 15 minutes away along the very scenic coastal highway. Mt Washington Alpine Resort and Strathcona Provisional Park are just a 30 minute drive away. Horne Lake Caves are just down the road, Campbell River (great whale watching tours) is just up the road. Cumberland with all its fantastic bike trails is only 10 minutes away and is a funky, vibrant village.

Spacious beach house with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Buckley Bay Beach House.

The house is in a great location and the views of Denman Island are lovely especially on beautiful sunny mornings.

The facilities are good and we enjoyed eating our BBQ's down by the water's edge.

We needed longer there and would definitely book again.

Beautiful Place with some nice views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at John and Sue's place for two nights and had wonderful time. We arrived at our place at 3:30 pm and had little early check in. They also let us do late check in which we greatly appreciate. Sue came to make sure that we are comfortable at our new place and if we need anything. Even though they live next door they did not bother us at all and we had complete privacy to our place. We really enjoyed our first evening using their hot tub overlooking amazing view. Unfortunately whether wasn't that great and it was raining the whole time and we were not able to enjoy their backyard at all. They have nice open place in the back for family to enjoy. John and Sue thanks for letting us stay at your place.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sue and John for a lovely stay! Your cottage was perfect for our family weekend stay. We loved being right on the water and having a beach bonfire. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was close to Mount Washington and Comox. The perfect spot to explore the area. We would highly recommend your property. Thank you!

Location! Clean! Beautiful! Quiet! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing experience! Clean and spacious home. Beautiful views, and very quiet relaxing atmosphere! Exactly what we as a family were looking for. Great location for those day trips, and it was perfect for those quiet evenings in the hot tub when our son went to bed. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a peaceful and comfortable stay on the island. And if you love oysters as I do! Location is second to none. Thank you so much John and Sue!

Buckley Bay Beach House vacation rental is centrally located in Buckley Bay, a small community that is part of the Comox Valley on the east coast of Vancouver Island, BC. Our waterfront location, with private beach, wildlife viewing and large garden, will keep you as busy as you want to be but if your itinerary includes getting out to see more of Vancouver Island (and there’s lots to see and do) we have some suggestions for you.

Whale watching (for killer whales!!), salmon fishing, golfing, hiking in wonderful Strathcona Provincial Park, downhill skiing/snowboarding/nordic skiing at Mount Washington Alpine Resort, great family fun exploring at Horne Lake Caves, visit Hornby Island (the ferry is just down the road) for lovely hiking along the bluffs in Halliwell Park or on the beach at Tribune Bay.
