Phil and Jolie live in Comox, 3 hours north of Victoria, with their son and daughter. The family enjoys numerous outdoor activities including golf, sailing, biking, hiking, rollerblading and skiing. When time permits they also like to travel abroad.
We chose to buy at Bear Mountain for the proximity to Victoria and all its offerings, while also enjoying the majestic natural splendor of being on a mountain top with an ambience similar to Whistler.
When we stay at the condo we enjoy the many outdoor activities including the pool at the Mountainside Athletic Club, but we also like sight-seeing in Victoria strolling around the harbour, shopping and eating at the many wonderful restaurants. The Butchart botanical gardens are a must for us every summer and every Christmas season.
