We discovered the condo on our drive from Victoria to the north Island to visit friends. We stayed over one night and and when we awoke the next morning we thought we were in Heaven, At that moment we decided to purchase the unit for our family. We now rent it out to others to enjoy what we have enjoyed over the past many years.
Beautiful location very quite and rest full.The condo is well appointed with original.art by local B.C. artist.
