Learn Why Residents Love The Ridge in Courtenay

Posted on Nov 13, 2017

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.

From Tourist to Resident, Vancouver Island Draws Visitors to Real Estate Market

Posted on Oct 22, 2017

Traveling to Vancouver Island as a tourist typically means taking in the ocean air at one of the many beaches or beach resorts, hiking along forest trails or mountain peaks, biking, paddling, golfing or taking on any number of active adventures. With world class spas and restaurants, finding time to relax is easy.

The natural beauty – combined with a mild climate year-round, friendly towns and multiple recreating activities – is also turning many tourists into full time residents!  Watch some video highlights here.

A recent article in the Calgary Herald highlights this trend in the Comox Valley:

“When people come into the recreation centre, we ask, ‘are you visiting or new to the area?’” says Leah Knutson, The Village of Cumberland’s manager of recreation. “Fifty per cent are visitors, and we say, ‘watch out, you are going to end up living here.’”

The Calgary Herald heard that many new Comox Valley residents were attracted to the area because of the active, outdoor lifestyle, including surfing, paddle boarding or fishing on the lake or ocean, rock climbing, or skiing at Mount Washington.

The Ridge is a new residential development in the City of Courtenay, in the Comox Valley on the east coast of Vancouver Island.
