Property description

Bright, cozy suite with ocean views and all the amenities of home.

The Studio is a serene seaside escape. The bright, open space brings the natural world inside with large ocean-view windows.

Curl up in the queen bed set back in the alcove or relax in the sunny living room. Large ocean-view windows and a covered patio lounge means you can pass the day on shore-time in any weather. All the necessities are here including your own washer/dryer, bathroom with tub/shower, tv with Netflix library.

The kitchen is equipped and ready for your culinary creations or chef it up on the patio barbecue.

Explore Marine Dr's shoreline on one of the property's cruiser bikes or take to the sea and check out the Wrecks in one of the kayaks.

The beach outside is a sanctuary for shorebirds and access is not even a minute's walk from the Studio door. Royston Retreat is on the city bus loop, just minutes from Cumberland and Courtenay and within walking distance to the area's pub, coffee shop and store.
Our suites are pet friendly for friendly pets!

**If you don't see the dates you'd like available for the Cabin, we do have two other suites at the same property. The Loft (VRBO property #579355) and The Cabin (VRBO property #690374) can be found online and may have the dates you'd like available!

Owner info

About the owner: We purchased this property a couple years ago and went to work transforming it into the type of vacation rental that WE would want to stay in. Every aspect of the vacation experience was taking into account when building it. Both Darryl and I have been raised in the Comox Valley and we have extensive knowledge of the local area, from the best local eateries and music venues to check out, to the ideal spots for picnics and walks, to fishing adventures and everything in between. It has been a constantly evolving labour of love for us and we hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we enjoy making it happen!

Why the Owner Chose Courtenay:
It was a diamond in the rough after years of neglect. With polishing and love infused back in to it, it shines as a beautiful location to come escape by the sea!

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Our property is situated in a bay allowing it to be mostly sheltered from the shore winds but ideal for viewing the ocean and the busy harbour in Comox, across the bay. There is a sensitive nature habitat at the south end of the beach and shipwrecks at the north end. Coffee shops, pub, store, and many other neat things to check out all within a short distance.
