Welcome to Creekside Commons: an intergenerational cohousing community nestled on nine acres in the heart of the Comox Valley. Unit 209 is a bright, quiet duplex home that offers the chance to experience intentional living in a supportive, thriving, and well-developed community. Community members choose their level of involvement, working on various teams, projects, and social activities.

 

​Owners benefit by being able to use a 3,500 sq. ft. Common House, which includes a large space for gatherings, yoga, dances, classes, and movie nights. Also, you will find a meeting room, lounge, playroom, piano, two guest rooms and a well-stocked kitchen where shared meals are prepared. 

 

The property includes common and personal vegetable gardens, a greenhouse, orchard, children's play spaces, labyrinth, picnic areas, and boat storage. Creekside is an environmentally conscious community with extensive recycling and composting areas, and two electric vehicle charging stations.

 

​There is also a 600 sq. ft. workshop with a quality selection of tools that are available for community use, and a small paint room plus art/craft room with pottery wheel.

The Community

Creekside Commons was completed in 2007 and has grown into a friendly, cooperative community of 36 households. The Creekside strata has a healthy contingency fund for future repairs and servicing. Creekside is a model of effective decision making. Owners participate in running the community through consensus decision making and volunteer labour. Strata fees are currently $310 per month.

​The property has a rural sense yet is conveniently accessible to many urban resources. Within walking distance is lively downtown Courtenay, the library, Driftwood mall with a movie theatre, and a funky coffee house in artsy Tin Town. Outdoor farmers' markets provide locally produced fruits, vegetables, wine, cheese and other products.  And all within a 30-minute drive are Comox International airport, world class mountain biking in Cumberland, hiking, alpine and nordic skiing at Mt Washington. Canoeing, kayaking, and beachcombing are popular activities in the area. As well, Creekside Commons is adjacent to a park with extensive wooded walking trails.
