Donna and Jim decided to make the big move to Vancouver Island in 2016. They had lived in Kingston, Ontario for more than 50 years but after their two sons moved to British Columbia, they decided to follow. The question was, where on Vancouver Island were they going to live?
They had looked at other communities on Vancouver Island and chose the Comox Valley as it offered everything they were looking for, including a doctor who was taking new patients, a new hospital and a community that was located about half-way between the cities where their sons lived.
They came across The Ridge website and decided to take a drive through the scenic subdivision. After meeting the developer and viewing a Lawmar Contracting home under construction, they made their decision on the spot to purchase the home and moved in on December 1, 2016.
“The area surrounding The Ridge is so beautiful, and we love walking around the many trails here and seeing the mountains and the ocean,” Donna says. “It is like living in paradise: we see trumpeter swans, Canadian geese and eagles flying right over our house.”
Donna and Jim thoroughly enjoy living at The Ridge. They really appreciate the multi-generational aspect of their neighbourhood and having young children, families and retirees in their community. The neighbours are friendly and welcoming. As an added bonus, Jim loves being in such close proximity to many top-rated golf courses.
