Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Discover Royston House ....... It's like being in an island of serenity--an idyllic park-like retreat just minutes from downtown Courtenay. It was originally a property attached to the Hilton Manor and used as their orchard so it contains some 90+ year old King Apple trees that produce delicious apple juice.
Nancy and Ross Munro are your hosts who live on this 2+ acre estate. They built their home and Vacation Rental in 2004 after moving from their organic blueberry farm on the British Columbia mainland. Still practicing growing fruits with organic principles extensive fruit is available both wild and cultivated seasonally on the Royston House property. Nancy makes fresh jellies that are provided to Guests.
Children are welcome at Royston House and will love it here
Why the Owner Chose Courtenay: We decided to make the Comox Valley our home after we decided to sell our farm in Mission BC. Nancy had travelled all of British Columbia with her Company and the Comox Valley was her choice of a place to live.
There are so many things to do and see in the Valley that you never run out of exciting opportunities. In fact most of our Guests are disappointed when they realize they have not booked enough time here.
Only a couple of minutes from your accommodations to access the wonderful new Royston Waterfront Trail immediately in front of Royston House with it's great views where Nature abounds.
We were very fortunate in 2001 to acquire the Royston House property, just lucky timing on a drive by. Our house was custom built by Ross in 2003/2004 with the Carriage House opened as a Vacation Rental in 2008 when our daughter moved to this area.
The property has been retained mostly as originally found except for adding our home to an open space. Majesty Douglas Fir are located on the east and west sides. A giant Gary Oak greets visitors entering the property. Native plants grown in abundance and provide an ideal wildlife habitat for deer and birds. As we are on the flypass from and to Alaska, Birds enjoy the natural food and fauna of Royston House.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Building our Royston House gave us the opportunity to make it a true west coast design home with natural woods, timber frames and natural rock.
Indoors you will feel like you are actually outdoors with the large viewing windows and the ability to open to the ocean breezes that occur every day.
A perfect Oceanside Retreat to totally melt into Nature and the outdoors yet so close to all the Comox Valley has to offer.
