Whether you are looking for a rustic acreage in the countryside, a vacation home on the beach, or a condo downtown, Vancouver Island has something to offer everyone. Immerse yourself in the island lifestyle; rich in arts, outdoor recreation and fitness, First Nations culture, and a pure love for life itself. Because Vancouver Island is so diverse, you can find the right home and community for the lifestyle you and your family are looking to lead.
No matter where you go on this magnificent island there is an attraction as truly unique as the next, whatever the season. Near the Comox Valley you can enjoy Mt. Washington Alpine Resort for either a day of skiing or mountain biking. The west coast Vancouver Island communities of Ucluelet and Tofino, accessed through Port Alberni, hosts many beach front resorts where you can get cozy by the fireplace to watch a fierce storm with waves crashing on the shore, or relax on a blanket on the beach watching the fascinating sport of surfing; maybe even trying it out yourself!
Beach combing, a nature walk through Cathedral Grove, the Royal BC Museum, zip lines, and more, will keep children (and children at heart) from ever having a chance to be bored. No matter what day it is or the weather conditions you can find something to do with the whole family.
With a small town mentality even in the larger city centers, it is not hard to feel at home here. Vancouver Island is truly a place like no other where you will be welcomed with open arms and the natural beauty will make you see why people fall in love with this majestic place.
