Crown Isle Planning More New Building Lots for 2017

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.

Enjoy a Quick Trip To The Ski Hill From Your Home at The Ridge in Courtenay

Comox Valley skiingSki 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!
