Lovely cottage and enchanting neighborhood.
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!
Loved our week at The Loft. Very unique and was adequate space for our family of four. Enjoyed the bathroom and the kids enjoyed the two shower heads. We wouldn't hesitate to book this again.
Thanks so much! We're happy you enjoyed your time here. Have a great rest of your summer!
Great location, great ocean access, great accommodations
I will definitely be staying there again
Thanks Sharon! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Loft. We hope to have you back in the future!
Great location by the sea
Great location. Loved the bikes and kayaks.
Thanks Wayne! I'm glad you got to enjoy use of the toys. We hope to have you back one day!
Beautifully furnished and outfitted. Right on the beach. Perfect spot to Relax.
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.
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!
I'm so glad you and the family enjoyed the place! Have a great rest of your summer :)
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
