ABOUT THE GULF ISLANDS
Ranging in size, population, and services, the Gulf Islands offer truly unique remote escapes, allowing residents and visitors to get away from the hustle and bustle of a city to experience a simpler more isolated existence.
The Gulf Islands are the perfect place to call home if you are looking for a laid-back West Coast lifestyle. Homes range from luxury waterfront properties to single family homes on acreage that provides privacy. Competitive pricing and oftentimes flexible zoning make the Gulf Islands an ideal place to build a custom retreat.
LIFESTYLE & RECREATION
Residences enjoy a wonderful work-life balance, making sure to take the time to enjoy activities that nature provides. People here are friendly with a real sense of community. The Gulf Islands attract tourists from all over the world, known for their Mediterranean style climate, exquisite coastal views and rich cuisine with locally grown or sourced ingredients.
Though the island lifestyle is very laid back, there are plenty of activities to keep one occupied all year long if desired. Water sports are naturally a part of island life with most residents enjoying canoeing, kayaking, yachting and power yachting on a regular basis, not to mention land-based adventures such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, beach combing and bird watching are. The larger islands also offer more urban activities such as yoga, tennis, indoor swimming, golfing, and fishing, along with community lead events like open mic nights and art shows.
AMENITIES & TRANSPORTATION
There are more than 200 islands in the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. The larger islands are serviced by BC Ferries while the smaller ones can only be reached by private boat or float plane.
The Gulf Islands are situated between Vancouver Island and the mainland of BC located in the Strait of Georgia.
Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Georgia and the Inside Passage, Vancouver Island is the “the Hawaii of the North”. With its vast wilderness, picturesque peaks, and temperate climate, this stunning locale is a paradise for those seeking serenity and natural beauty. A breadth of lifestyles are available here from charming coastal communities and pastoral estates, to busy urban centres.
Unlike much of Canada, Vancouver Island's weather is mild year-round. Spring comes early, with cherry blossom, tulip, and daffodil blooms lit by sparkling ocean sunsets. Summer is close behind, with the first sightings of migrating whales and local fishermen. In fall, a plethora of farms, vineyards, orchards, cideries, and breweries take local culinary culture to new heights. Come winter, cars loaded with kayaks, surfboards, paddle boards, skis, and snowboards come out to play, while golfers teeing off, and joggers taking to the trails remain common sights. Whatever the season, there’s plenty to enjoy on Vancouver Island.
