Where is it?
We live on the Sunshine Coast. The closest city is Vancouver which is a stunning 40 min ferry ride away. If you have ever seen the TV show the "Beachcombers" well that is the Sunshine Coast. The area is a popular weekend getaway from the city. Small towns with lots of artists, festivals, weekly markets, world class diving, fishing, boating and so much more! There are some amazing beaches and wonderful rain forests with huge ancient trees. Skookumchuck Narrows are a sight to see, boat tours up the inlet to Chatterbox Falls, kayacking around the islands, mountain biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and that just lists a few! There is a world famous Celtic music school here also.
Whistler is a hour and 15 minutes away once you are off the ferry. It makes a easy and lovely weekend away. There are also 3 easy access ski hills in Vancouver which could be a nice day ski trip. Victoria is a short seaplane ride away and it will take you right into the heart of downtown. So no car would be needed for that trip if you wished to explore off the coast.
Our neighbourhood is upscale, quiet and mainly families. We are 2 blocks from the ocean and a 15 min walk to a lovely park and beach. The park is very popular for mountain biking, hiking and birdwatching. There is a small corner store in the area and a 10 min drive to the closest town which has all that would be needed.
