We had a great time at the Ocean front cottage in Marine drive Royston. Me and my family were over from New Zealand for a family wedding. This lovely spacious house was able to accommodate up to 7/8 of us with ease. Our host Valerie was a very good communicator. She answered all ?s promptly and accurately and left very helpful instructions for managing the property and regarding things to do in the area. Her house was well supplied with the essentials and also not so essentials and in particular it was great to have a Weber BBQ to use which was an added convenience for cooking. The property is located in a beautiful part of the Comox/Courtenay area with stunning views from the front lounge/dinning areas over the estuary. It is a convenient 10 minutes from central Courtenay with supermarkets etc even closer. All in all we were thrilled with our stay and would highly recommend it.
My wife, parents and I enjoyed staying here. The location is very pretty and quiet. The house was more than spacious for the four of us. It was also extremely clean.
Valerie made us feel very welcome upon our arrival, showing us around the home. There were written instructions for trash and waste management as well as favorite eateries and places to go and see. The house was just like the pictures. The beds were comfortable, but surprisingly didn't have box springs under the mattresses. The chairs out back were perfect for sipping coffee and sunning our faces in the early morning sun.
We loved everything about our stay at this beautiful home, even better than expected or hoped for. It is serenely and tastefully decorated, spacious, lots of sunlight, peaceful, able to host larger groups easily. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, the towels thick and soft, each of the bedrooms different and special. There is plenty of opportunity for walks or sitting in the lovely, flowered yard, & easy access to shopping, restaurants, hikes in Courtenay/Comox and beyond. We definitely recommend this home and hope to return ourselves one day. Though we did not meet host Valerie in person, she made everything easy in all our email and text communications. We are hugely thankful!
Valerie was very accommodating, timely and super helpful with all aspects of the booking process and the house was perfect. We had everything we needed, it was easy to find, spacious and the view stunning. I would definitely recommend staying at Valerie's!
Valerie was very communicative regarding the booking and gave me all the information I asked for including things to do in the area.
The house was very spacious and quite well set up. The furniture is nice and the view from the living room out to Comox Harbour and the ship wrecks was fantastic. There are lots of outdoor activities to do in the area of Comox and this house, being as cosy as it is, is a perfect place to return to after a big day out.
Would recommend this place to others.
This place was everything that was listed & more. The views were spectacular! It was clean & easy to find. I would gladly rent this home again
We loved spending four nights in this beautifully appointed home right on the water's edge. The views are lovely, and the place is too! Very tastefully decorated, with lovely antiques. Everything you need in the kitchen. The host is a great communicator, and was very flexible in terms of arrival/departures. Outstanding - Five stars!
The Place was beautiful! The setting on the beach was amazing! Having the fire right in the middle of the living room also made it feel so warm and welcoming. I have to say I was disappointing by the comfort level of the beds. Every room the beds were kind of hard. If the beds were more comfortable I can say it would be my favorite place to stay. Over all I definitely enjoyed it but the beds really were disappointing!
beautiful ocean front house, delicate garden and easy drive in and out. very convenient appliances, and four bed room is really worth in that price. Our family have wonderful vacation experience in there, will come again next time.
