Property description

Cowichan Bay was formed by the long standing presence of First Nations people, followed by an immigrant heritage that developed our cultural beginnings in forestry, fishing and farming industries.

Our community is a “slow food” community, painting and preserving glimmers of our cultural history. Today, we strive to protect the beauty and ecological integrity of these gifts of precious natural resources. Our community believes in the utilizing appropriate tools and practices for the protection of our land, air and water.

Cowichan Bay is a place for families, businesses, the young and old. Our commercial areas host a mix of businesses including consulting and design firms, medical offices, galleries, boat works, food processing facilities, cafes, ice cream shops all linked by off road trails and within close proximity to each other.

OUR HOUSE is in the hub of all the action within the Bay. We have a busy event calendar going on and urge you to come and experience the fun.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a family with three children who live nearby.

Why the Owner Chose Cowichan Bay, BC, Canada:
We both attended the University of Victoria, and after working abroad in Zimbabwe and Colorado for many years, we decided that we missed the island and all it has to offer. Cowichan Bay is unique in that it allows us to walk or ride our bikes to all local amenities. We love the views from our house and the coziness of the community.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sunsets are to die for..A glass of wine on the deck in the summer months and you will not want to leave..You can leave your car keys and your cell phone in your bag and not take them out for the duration of your stay...or you can do the opposite and efficiently run business affairs, away from the stresses of the city. Cowichan Bay is rural and by the sea, however it is still close enough to enjoy the fruits of Victoria, Duncan and Nanaimo..
