My husband Mike and I moved to Vancouver Island from Alberta in early 02 to a derelict, barren property with nary a flower ot shrub , just big Douglas Firs, but the views and location were incredible. With renovations and many loads of top soil our home evolved into a delightful escape. Mike was a fun loving artist and I have a great sense of whimsy..ergo ..a funky, interesting atmosphere.
Mike sadly passed away in early 09 but he left a huge stamp on this property. I know people will want to share what I have here.
I have two small dogs and am a huge animal lover. Well behaved dogs or (or maybe just a little naughty) are welcome.
This is a very friendly place and hopefully you can slow down to island time while you are here. I have studio space available and I must say this is a marvelous artist retreat.
This area has something for everyone. It is bursting at the seams with musicians and artists, galleries, hiking trails, incredible views and a plethora of sports activities. Within two blocks you will find 2 restaurants, a pub,and popular burger wagon, community centre, and handicapped trail that is serene and gorgeous. The suite is handicap accessible with decks on three sides and handicap shower..
Fabulous place for the artist or muscian. Bring your paints and enjoy the vast scenery or join in on one of the many jam sessions around the island
