1 bedroom, 1 bathroom oceanside cottage with mountain, ocean, and garden views
About Georgia Henderson
We have owned and altered this property for 14 years and spent many hours putting our signature on almost every inch but like all projects it is a work in progress. I am a graduate of arts school and Ron is a journeyman carpenter and we have spent the last 18 years renovating houses, gardening and lending our talents to others starting the same journey. We are island people-I grew up on Gambier, we live on an island, have a cabin on Hornby that we rent and a small home on Kauai.
Georgia Henderson purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Georgia Henderson chose Courtenay
I grew up on an island and next to the ocean so my dream was to live there as we retired. We absolutely love where we live and are thankful every day for the opportunity to spend our days here. The area is quiet, beautiful and we see our fair share of wildlife pass by our window. This year it was a young pair of deer, black bear, and just yesterday an otter crossed over our porch. The bird life is amazing often filling the sky with white as they take off and then land again on the little island off shore. We grow organically most of our fruit and vegetables and give away boxes of produce we cant use. We have beautiful sunsets that make you want to grab a kayak or at least your camera and certain times of the season beach fires are allowed. We keep the green space between us and the ocean mowed and there is lots of room to enjoy the view.
What makes this Cabin unique
We have used found objects from renovating the property to decorate with so there are a lot of storys and history associated with the décor. We never tire of watching gulls and eagles, seals and otters about their business at the waterfront and taking a morning coffee in the back yard where the garden lends a lot of open privacy. Guests find the proximity of the pub and coffee shop a great asset when considering an easy solution for a meal. The pub often has live music as its only a block away!

Wonderful location for a multi-family holiday
Unique beachfront property with eclectic decor
Thanks georgia and Ron for a fun and peaceful stay. We really enjoyed the scenery and all you interesting decor. So much to look at. Sunset beachfront was great. We enjoyed taking pictures and relaxing there. Your bed was comfy and the kitchen well equipped. Fresh veggies from your garden a nice touch!
Hope to be back again. All the best!
Unique Property - Gorgeous Area
We loved staying at the Red Roofs of Royston. It was the perfect location for day trips out to visit the Island. Georgia was very kind to offer us vegetables from her garden. Only minor complaint was it was a bit warm in the cottage with the sun coming in during the day. But other than that, the perfect stay!
Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing
Many thanks to Georgia for introducing us to her very comfortable property. The kitchen has all you need, the bedroom is comfortable and the garden is lovely. The setting is beautiful, right on the beach and a short drive to forest walks. It is a peaceful retreat and the owner welcoming and helpful. We would love to return.
Beautiful Garden setting full of birds
Great little rustic cottage in a beautiful garden just across from the Trent Estuary bird sanctuary.
Nice to meet you Rupert and find out about your work. Hope you come back with your family for another visit.
