About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This lovely hillside property perches above the waters of Johnstone Strait. From one side of the 93 foot glassed balcony, you look over the totems in the historic village of Alert Bay. From the other you look across the waters of the Strait to the snow capped mountains of Vancouver Island. This quiet and well appointed adult home is an ideal retreat for writers or artists, as it comes with both a den/library and art studio.
Perfect too for the amateur pilot who can take advantage of the well maintained airstrip on this tiny island. The eagles soar over your head here and the orcas swim past the deck. The only thing you hear is the motor of the occasional passing cruise ship. Hike the old growth forest trails, enjoy the sea kayaking, unparalleled sport fishing. Learn about the culture of the 'Namgis First Nation at the unique U'Mista Cultural Centre.
This home is completely equipped and ideal for a longer stay.

Aert Bay is home of the 'Namgis First Nation. There are many opportunities to view totem poles, see traditional carvers at work, and during the summer months, watch traditional dance at the Big House. There are opportunities for whale watching in the beautiful Johnstone Strait, combined with visits to the Orca Lab, and other whale habitats.
Year Purchased: 2000
About: This home was bought 10 years ago while I was working as the physician for the Namgis First Nation here in Alert Bay. Its many visitors have often commented that the vista from almost every room is unique and spectacular. While work has taken me east for the time being, I love the opportunity to come back to my real 'home'. My new husband Francois loves it here as much as I do. We try to come back as often as possible and enjoy the opportunity of sharing it with others when we are not here.
Why Alert Bay, BC, Canada:
The view speaks for itself!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Alert Bay is the home of traditional native carvers. There are many totem poles still standing in the traditional burial grounds. During summer months there are performances of traditional native dance and song in the Big House. In addition there are many opportunities to enjoy tips to nearby ancient island villages.
