Lovely cottage and enchanting neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of 4! We explored up and down the comox valley and also enjoyed wandering around the neighborhood. The local store and restaurant were filled with friendly and welcoming people. We would highly recommend this place for quiet solitude, couples, or families!

Beautifully furnished and outfitted. Right on the beach. Perfect spot to Relax.

  • 5 of 5

The loft is right across the street from the beach in Royston. Modern appliances and a large bathroom that includes two shower heads in an open, walk-in shower.

We spent most of our time in the patio enjoying the view.

There is a general store/liquor store as well as a pub a 2 minute walk away. 10 minute drive into Courtenay for a "big" shop.

We look forward to returning.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was just the perfect spot to vacation with our young family. The loft had everything we could possibly have needed and more. Loved loved loved the bathroom! Really enjoyed waking up, making a cup of coffee and relaxing on the patio with a beautiful ocean view. We're already talking about booking for next summer but for a longer stay!

About Anna Palumbo

Royston Retreat is owned and operated by Anna and Darryl. Our love for our shoreline and wildlife brought us to design and build custom vacation suites for those looking for a unique and restoring experience to those visiting the area.

Both raised in the Comox Valley, we have travelled local land and waters extensively and will help you to discover the best the area has to offer.

Anna Palumbo purchased this bungalow in 2011

Car: recommended

This oceanside neighbourhood is a bird sanctuary with birds from all over flocking to its shores during the cooler months. The weather in this bay is often sunnier than inland as the clouds like to stick to the mountains and is sheltered from direct winds.

There are many picnic areas and benches to enjoy the scenery as well as a nearby kayak launch point. The north end of the road is home to the Royston Shipwrecks. Our property faces south east to the Comox Harbour.

The Comox Valley itself is rich in culture and diverse recreational activities. Whether you enjoy rock climbing, beach combing, fishing, art, theatre, music, shopping or exploring- there is a multitude of events and neat local spots to satisfy your needs.

A couple of our favorite things I'll recommend to check out are: ~Farmer's Market (Saturdays 9-noon at the fair grounds in Courtenay) ~Waverley Pub (Excellent music)

~the Village of Cumberland (great boutiques and history)

~local trails and swim spots such as Nymph Falls

~Mt.Washington (Paradise Meadows trail loop and the chair lift)

The Valley also hosts many cool festivals and celebrations, a couple worth mentioning are:

Canada Day Festivities~July

Vancouver Island Music Festival~ July

Filberg Festival~ August

Nautical Days~August
