Perfect location for an active holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located if you enjoy ski-ing, hiking, cycling, walking or just relaxing. It is spacious and well equipped. We had six adults, and three cars with bikes and cycling gear and it was perfect for our needs. The fridge is huge and we cooked at home every night for three nights, and enjoyed sitting around the lovely dining room table with a view of the ocean. We actually had eight for Easter dinner and plenty of room, lots of dishes and no problem at all. The kitchen has everything you'll need, and more. The owners were perfect hosts, supplied us with cycling maps of the area and helped us find enough table mats, napkins and so on for our big dinner. You can't go wrong with this listing.

Owner's Response: Veronica, we truly enjoyed meeting you, John and your biking friends. We love having a central location for biking, hiking and whatever you choose in the Comox Valley. Accommodating guests is what we do as we did at our previous Royston House B&B. Hope to see you again soon to explore more of the Valley's great biking trails. Nancy and Ross

Awesome. The house is big and warm, perfect for our family Christmas with lots of people.

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun with the games room, the living room was decorated with Christmas things. The rooms worked out perfectly. It's a big warm quite spot for a family to enjoy Christmas or any gathering for that matter.

We didn't need to bring anything (plates,forks,cups,glasses, coffee ect ect) the house is ready for whatever you need. It's big and clean and perfect. Thanks so much Nancy and Ross.

A lovely home for a group.

  • 4 of 5

We found the hosts and the home absolutely perfect for our large family group of 5 adults and 2 kids! The walk down Warren Ave along the waterfront is a highlight. Royston is conveniently close to Cumberland, Courtenay, several walking trails and recreational options. A very nice stay, thank you!
