After a busy summer sales season, the pace of home sales in Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community has only slowed in the winter months because of a lack of listings! The Crown Isle community typically has 70-80 listings on the market, but currently there are only fewer than 30, with only a handful of singles family homes available, according to Crown Isle Real Estate Realtor Bert Jaeger.
Crown Isle is working to bring more lots to the market in 2017. There are currently 4 subdivisions with new homes under construction within the resort community. Another 4 new subdivisions are planned for 2017.
With 12 builders, including Homes by Crown Isle, currently working on new homes, talk to the Real Estate team at Crown Isle to learn more about who can build your new dream home.

Set in a community with year-round outdoor activities and adventures to be enjoyed in one of Canada's most temperate climates, owners at The Gales are never at a loss for things to do. From a walk on one of the many local beaches to leisurely strolls through pristine forest right at your back door, the lure of natural wonder is ever beckoning.
If you are in the mood for a slightly more urban experience, the town of Ladysmith offers the convenience of being close by without the manic pace of a large urban centre. The relaxed and friendly pace of life in Ladysmith will leave you as refreshed as you are after a walk in one of the many local parks. If you need a big city fix however you're still just a short drive from Nanaimo to the north and Victoria to the south.
The new Vancouver Island homes at The Gales feature vaulted ceilings, spacious rooms, and impressive views. You'll also find meticulous high-end finishing and amazing attention to detail. The bungalow-style homes and condominiums at The Gales are designed and built in West Coast contemporary architectural style. Floor plans are open and ideal for entertaining. Warm earth tones throughout complement the coastal landscape. Wide sunny decks give you plenty of room for lounging outdoors.

Ski season is now under way at Mount Washington, where choices for on-mountain accommodation make it popular for families from all over Vancouver Island over the Christmas break.
But lucky residents of The Ridge in Courtenay are only half an hour from the chair lifts, making it easy to seek out a white Christmas for just a day or a few hours.
For non-skiers, the hill also offers tubing, beginner ski and snowboard experiences and festive activities including the torchlight parade and fireworks, which are part of the two-week Winter Wonderland festival.
While the Comox Valley typically basks in some of the warmest weather in Canada, with the snow usually relegated to the ski hill, the proximity to Mount Washington means winter is only a short drive away for those who want it.
If it’s the opposite you’re seeking, weekly direct flights to Mexican beaches are also available from the Comox Valley Airport.
Build your new home at The Ridge in Courtenay and discover everything that Vancouver Island living can be!
