About Cheryl and Kevin Webster

Kevin grew up in Ontario and Cheryl, although born in Alberta, grew up in Germany and British Columbia. We have both now lived in Courtenay for the past 30 plus years where we raised our family. Now with our children all adults, we travel more and have now taken on a new adventure of being vacation home owners.

Cheryl and Kevin Webster purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Cheryl and Kevin Webster chose Comox-Strathcona A

This property is located in Royston which is also where we reside (in another house). We have lived in Royston for 15 years and love it very much. Only minutes from town, yet in a secluded rural setting with the beach and many walking trails just steps away. The property is 1/3 of an acre boasting fruit and nut trees and an assortment of berry's. An array of Rhododendron shrubs, herbs, and perennial's make this a garden's paradise.

What makes this bungalow unique

This charming, country home is quaint and cozy with a back veranda that is cloaked with a stunning purple Wisteria from early April until mid August. Many berry bushes and a fully fenced yard for pets and kids to run free! A short 4 minute walk to the beach with a spectacular view

Excellent property in a quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Met all of our expectations for a trip with our newborn, toddler and dog. Quiet location, lots of yard space for toddler and dog, and excellent proximity to everything to explore in the valley. Well stocked kitchen and lots of space throughout the home. Would highly recommend!

Overall great stay, close to Royston roastery, great backyard, and close to ocean.

  • 4 of 5

Very close to Cumberland bike trails and 19 access point, so easy to get to mount Washington. Close to Courtenay, and the seaside trails. We could have used another bathroom, but we are a family of five, and also a dishwasher would have been handy. We realize that being on septic makes the dishwasher a problem. The air conditioner and BBQ, made up for it though :)

Idyllic Royston rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this charming bungalow on beautiful Vancouver Island. Cheryl was a welcoming and attentive host and the property was well equipped and spacious enough for our party of six. We enjoyed eating out on the wysteria clad deck and strolling down to the waterfront to enjoy the fireworks or jogging along the trails. Royston is a small, friendly community while the nearby towns of Courtenay and Comox have all you need in terms of supermarkets and dining options. Our hosts also provided some great suggestions for day trips and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting Seal Bay. We would really love to return for a longer stay to one of the most beautiful vacation spots on earth. Thanks for a great stay.

Lovely home and backyard

  • 5 of 5

This home is private, spacious and has a beautiful kitchen and backyard. We spent most of our time out in the backyard! Home is well laid out with 3 bedrooms on the road side (bit noisy early in the morning but we shut the windows and turned on the fan after the first morning and all was well). Overall a lovely home - thanks for a great stay.
