About our home

Our house is 10 min walk from one of the many beaches and is central to all the amenities that the island has to offer. We live in an adult complex in an attractive area among warm, friendly people. Five minutes to Qualicum Beach village for shopping, cafes, restaurants, live theatre, art and cultural interests, 5 golf courses (open year round). Local to gyms, health spas, marinas, beach and water sports, and a variety of fishing. Choose from rivers, lakes, the ocean and charters for salmon and halibut. Some say this is the salmon capital of the world, truly! you can fish throughout the year for various species.

We enjoy the many walking and biking trails, some in the local national parks, visiting the markets and artisans, spotting the wildlife and strolling the beaches. One hour drive will take you to our ski mountain Mt Washington which is a 4 season resort. After the downhill, Nordic and snow shoeing are finished many enjoy board walking, chair lift and a big slide when the wild flowers are blooming and the birds are abundant, some quite tame.

We are on the east coast and central to other points of interest, only a half hour drive north of the town of Nanaimo where the ferry sails to Vancouver (less than 2 hours) or you can take the 30 minute flight from our local airport. Great for a day trip. Our capital of Victoria is 3 hours drive away. About the same time as to the west coast to Ukluelet and Tofino for surfing and charters to whale watching and game fishing.

From here you can see the Rockies and some of the islands in the Strait. Most of the islands are available by ferry for a day trip to see how the locals live. If you enjoy nature's creatures we have lots of wildlife that are regular visitors. Deer, bald eagles, sea lions and seals, bird life, (even the shy black bear can be seen).

Our area is part of a micro climate and so we enjoy mild winters and great summers. Most residents call it "Paradise" and everyone is positive. Visitors never fail to say "They will come back". That's as good as it gets!!!
