Lovely, clean, friendly, outgoing owner, spectacular views
We were very impressed with the place and area, and loved the privacy and ocean views. It was very home like, and warm setting. The owner was very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Great place 10 stars ⭐️

Not quite there
We stayed in Royals Roost for 2 weeks in April. We were greeted by Royal who seems to be a very nice lady. This rental is NOT a house as listed but it is the walkout basement of the house. When you enter there is a large deck with a beautiful view of the bay. The deck has a working BBQ and a non-working hot tub. Inside, the area is open, with lots of space, clean and warm. Having said that, there are a few quirks to note. There is no stove so you have to be creative to cook in. Not enough hot water to properly do dishes. There is a pump below the sink that comes on whenever you run the water. If you sit in the center section of one of the sofas you will just about sink to the floor. The second room with a bed has no windows and no heat. The box spring and mattress sit on the floor which could be difficult for an older person. Nearest laundry is Parksville. In the bathroom there is another pump behind the toilet. It is very loud and if you are sitting on the throne and it goes off, it could scare the crap out of you (no pun intended). There is no sound barrier between the upper and lower floors. You will hear everything that goes on upstairs. Although our stay wasn't horrible, it doesn't quite meet the mark.
Thank you for your feedback.
We try our best to make this suite as comfortable and enjoyable as we can. We are constantly upgrading and working on making it better for new guests. One of the changes we just applied is new couches.
We don’t list hot tub or stove in a list of amenities but I will make a note in a description as well just to avoid future confusions. We are glad you enjoyed the view - it’s one of the draws that keep some of our guests coming back each year.
Nice view but...
I wish others had been a little more honest in their reviews. The furniture is worn and my 75 year old mother practically sank to the floor when she sat on the middle cushion of the couch. The space is large and open but only had electric baseboard heat. We were very cold and wrapped in blankets our entire stay. Second bedroom did not have a window nor heat and is therefore not a “bedroom”. There is a very loud pump that ran every time the toilet was flushed or we ran water. No stove so cooking was challenging. Owners unit above wasn’t soundproofed and they had a dog that barked almost every time it heard us. Debated checking out after first night but it was non-refundable so we stayed. The view was however beautiful. Nothing against the owners - i think they are well-intentioned but it wasn’t the place for me.
We really enjoyed our time here. My husband, son, dog and I traveled to the area in late March. The rental is a walk out basement, with its own deck and private entrance. The water is just feet from the deck, with amazing opportunities for wildlife viewing. Inside was clean and roomy. There is no oven or range, but there is a burner you can plug in, so you have to be a little creative if cooking a more complex meal. The hot water runs out pretty quickly, like half way though the dishes. Think of if like indoor camp cooking.
We would gladly stay here again. The accommodations were warm and welcoming, and the setting gorgeous.
Famtastic location, perfect weather. Comfy bed. Wished there was a stove
Beautiful. Royal was lovely to speak with. Quiet and peaceful. Would recommend to others.
Cute and quirky
Was comfortable and cute, we had a nice stay. There is no oven, and only two beds but we snuggled in and made it work. Beautiful deck, with an amazing view! We wished the hot tub was working and available. Loved most of the art work, but thought some of the family stuff seemed a bit too personal for rental decor. All in all it was a nice place and we enjoyed our stay!
