Zoning allows year-round residential use, with the bonus of a Bed & Breakfast business if desired.
The morning sun rises early over the eastern end of the island, bathing the building site in light. The perfect balance of trees giving just the right amount of shade at the height of the summer sun, with the prevailing summer breeze keeping you refreshed, and the natural shade provided by Sa-Seen-Os Point in the early evening ensures a cool sleep at night.
Cowichan Lake offers pristine clear water, warm enough to enjoy summer activities like swimming, water skiing, boarding and tubing. Fishing is good year-round, even from the island itself.
The settlement of Youbou offers the security of civilization close by to the north, and to the south is an uninterupted viewscape of the open water and the mountains in the distance. Kick back and enjoy the natural privacy of the south shoreline, enjoying the typical sunny summer weather, reading a good book in your hammock, or strolling the natural trails that run the length and breadth of the island.
