Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in a very natural, private setting in an area naturally forested with Douglas fir, western red cedar, hemlock, maple, alder, and others. We are a short distance from main roads and have easy access to downtown Victoria which is about a 25 minute drive away. We are close to several beaches, lakes, rivers, and abundant hiking opportunities. There is abundant wildlife in the area including excellent birding right outside the door. Whale-watching, world-class salt and freshwater fishing, kayaking, and easy access to Vancouver and Seattle are all available with a little planning. The local Gulf Islands, and the U.S. San Juan Islands can also be visited for an easy day trip.
