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.

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!

Very spacious and roomy accommodation, with more amenities than we could possibly use with what turned out to be glorious weather. Very well maintained property with friendly, helpful ownership. Would definitely recommend for large groups.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Lawrence: The Eagles were on the waterfront by the ships of Royston as their baby was trying to leave the nest. We have had lots of large family guests who just love our Eaglesview property because of its roominess, games room and new kitchen and 3 new bathrooms.
