“The Best Place to Stay in Courtenay/Comox”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

Bella's is a tucked away gem right on the ocean close to the ferry terminal and CFB Comox, an easy drive into both Comox and Courtenay. The views are spectacular with a hot tub right outside your door on a deck facing the ocean. We had the front suite which has an unbelievable bathroom (see picture) and a gas fireplace that takes the chill out of the morning air. The room is bright, breezy and has so many thoughtful touches, from the native art, to menus from all the restaurants in town. My wife and I have completely opposite tastes in food and the breakfasts hit them perfectly. My wife enjoyed yogurt, fruit salad and baked French toast, while I indulged in bacon, sausage links and fantastic sausage patties and potatoes. Jim and Lori were most gracious hosts and even served us coffee one morning while we were still in the outdoor hot tub.

We enjoyed watching the BC ferries go pass by as well as airshows by the CF-18 hornets and even got to watch a search and rescue training exercise out front. At low tide you can walk along the beach and the morning sunrises are breathtaking (see picture). This will definitely be our place of choice when visiting the Comox Valley.

Like the last reviewers, we have only good things to report. The house has an amazing view, our bedroom was large and well-equipped. Since we stayed there in January, this time of year, the log fire is most welcome too. Breakfasts were excellent and huge ;) ! Above all, we felt that Jim & Lori are the perfect hosts: informative, helpful and seemingly made for this type of business. They really deserve to succeed in their venture.

We will definitely come back, Maki & Florian :)

We have travelled by boat past Bella's many times and thought it would be nice to spend a weekend enjoying the view from the other side , and Wow, what a view!!! Arrived in the dark to welcoming Christmas lights and Jim who helped us with our luggage and warmly greeted our dog Holly. The room exceeded our expectations with all the extra touches - a homemade blueberry loaf and chocolates on the table, water, juice and pop in the fridge, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, popcorn, a bowl of nuts Great bathtub with lovely selection of lotions etc. and many candles. Fell asleep listening to the waves breaking on shore and walked the beach before having a delicious breakfast with Jim and Lori who made us feel right at home. A wonderful place to stay.

Bella's Beachfront B&B was the most fantastic accommodation. Jim and Lori opened their hearts and home to not only a magnificent view but an exhilarating experience. The room is plush with a great view, lounge chairs, small fridge, coffee maker, and small personal touches that make it a stay of a lifetime. The breakfast was exceptional and our hosts were most accommodating.

A very warm welcome. Well appointed and immaculate room right on the beach. Incredible views usually seen from cruise ships enroute to Alaska.
Hot tub, microwave, fridge stocked with water, juice and pop. if you have forgotten anything, they have it in the room.
We have stayed in many B&B's in UK and Europe and would rate this one as one of the best.

Jim and Lori made us very welcome. The room is very well appointed and opens out onto the beach side with lovely views along the coast and across to the mainland. Lori's breakfasts are brilliant and don't forget to take some of Jim's cookies with you for the journey. If we're in Comox again this is where we will stay.

Jim and Lori provided us with an exceptional accommodation experience! The room opens right onto the waves with beautiful ocean breezes. You are provided with everything that you could need in your clean and carefully maintained suite. Breakfast was fantastic and your hosts can not do enough for you. Look forward to returning again!
