Secure Living in an Oceanfront Home with Million Dollar Views
It doesn’t get much better: Over 2000 sqf of prime living space welcoming you on an island where eagles still soar above your head and land on a giant Gary Oak tree on the property while deer rustle in the underbrush. Watch the sun rise from your bedroom and gaze at the amazing view of the moon over the water when you retire at night. This breathtaking view will keep you for hours just sitting and enjoying the peace and tranquility.
Restful & Peaceful Place…
Ideal for the executive who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of a city to come home to a restful and peaceful place to ponder and relax. With high-speed internet access and all the mod cons you’d think you are still in the city, but the absence of rush hour will remind you that you found your piece of heaven. Only a 12 minute seaplane flight away from downtown Vancouver or a 20 minute ferry ride from Nanaimo, yet nature couldn’t be any closer. It is not uncommon to see pods of killer whales navigating the waters around Gabriola Island and the Georgia Straits.
With its own brand new Fire Department, local school, various shops, services and Medical Emergency clinic including helicopter pad, there is no reason anymore for older people to leave the island they chose for retirement. There is so much more, so come and explore yourself!

South End Waterfront living at its best:
This private 0.5 acre waterfront property located in the very desired South End is in a safe and friendly family neighbourhood, at the end of Price Road, between Spring Beach and Thompson Beach. The spacious paved driveway – perfect for kids to play – leads to the house flanked by a garage on the side and a patio area with pond. Mature shrubs, flowers and trees are a gardener’s delight. The side garden features another pond and is the perfect place for some quiet reflection. This solidly built 3 bedroom/3 bathroom island home has 1,538 square feet on the main floor and 520 square feet downstairs, both with 50+ feet of deck overlooking the ocean. The property features a southern exposure giving you sunlight 10-12 hours per day, keeping the house nice and warm. For those chillier days, the fireplace in the living room heats the house quickly. Propane stoves in the bright office & family room give you warmth at the switch of a button. The sliding glass doors from the master bedroom, kitchen and a sun room open onto the deck giving you panoramic views. These 3-D like vistas of the Southern Gulf Islands of Valdez, Ruxton, Thetis, DeCourcy and Saltspring blend in with the equally picturesque Vancouver Island Mountain Range, providing one of natures spectacular backdrops. At daytime you can watch the eagles, at night time the moon takes your breath away. Recently upgraded water system with well, cistern & UV filtration. The cistern is constantly filled via the well, so in summertime, when some wells run dry, there’s always a backup of 2,000 gallons of water – a very comforting thought if you live on an island!
