We'd love to see you again.

Getting Down to the Practicalities:

A)  No - it isn't the long weekend.  :-))  So Ferries shouldn't be a horror story.

B)  Accommodations -- We have two available bedrooms, one a double bed and
      the other is what we call *the office* for which we have an airbed (also
      double).  First Come First Served.  :-))  We have lots of property for you
      'tenter types' - no  problem there.  Otherwise I guess its B&B or Hotel/Motel
      type stuff.  In that regard, the Links Below leads to a list of 
      Accommodations which might prove to work for you.

C)  Golf Anyone?  Crown Isle is 5 minutes away so those who are interested in
       setting up a tee time for whatever day should let us know and we'll arrange
      it if you like.  There is also Storey Creek in Campbell River which is
       supposed to be FAB to play.  The
Airshow is on Sunday August 7th if you've an
       interest in Stealth Bombers & F18 Jets.  :-))

D)  No Presents Please.  We'd just be delighted to have your company and
      spend some relax time with you.  its all that is required.

E)  Anyone who wants to stay over Sunday/Monday or beyond is very welcome
      to do so.  Just please let us know that's your plan so we can feed you.  :-))

F)  PLEASE RSVP - we don't want you to go hungry.  :-))  RSVP

G)  Directions: So you can actually find us.
       ***From the Inland Hwy (19) take the Courtenay/Comox Connector all the 
            way down to (and Left on) Cliffe Avenue (the main drag in Courtenay).  
       ***Proceed along Cliffe to 17th Street - Right on the bridge over to Comox.  
       ***Over the Bridge, turn left and drive along Old Island Hwy until you see
            Superstore on the Right.     
       ***Take the right bend at Superstore (Ryan Road) and all the way up
             Ryan Road until you hit the traffic light at Anderton & Ryan.  (Esso Station
             on Left side.)  
       ***Left on Anderton until you reach a fork in the road - DON'T take the 
            Powell River Ferry road (Ellenor) but instead keep to the left.  
            Anderton will magically become Waveland and just keep following 
            that road.  
       ***When you see a sign that indicates "Bates Beach" to the left, ignore it 
             and just keep going semi-straight.  (It will become clearer when you are 
             on the road.)
       ***We are about half way down on the left -- Watch for the little red roof.    
             We'll have balloons or something to indicate *The Place*.  :-))  
             Approx Drive Time From Departure Bay Nanaimo Ferry to Comox = about 1
             Hour give or take a Few Minutes.  If you use the Casita Alegria link below,
             you'll have an idea what you are looking for.

H)   If I've forgotten something (And Likely I have) - please ASK ME.


  COMOX AREA B + B LINKS  -  Numbers 27/18/24/5 + 25 on the map are in 
                                                                closest proximity.
  COMOX + COURTENAY HOTELS/MOTELS  -  Coast Westerly is fine if you've
          points to donate;  nice accommodation  but me thinks way expensive.  The
         Villas at Crown Isle
and Jaspers are closest.  Kingfisher is lovely but a small
         bit of a drive.  There is more - just ask.  Anyone interested in perhaps sharing a
         two bedroom villa at Crown Isle let me know and i'll put you in touch with each
