A key factor many people site in choosing where to build a new home on Vancouver Island is the availability of quality medical care. The Comox Valley is fortunate to have a state-of-the-art new $331.7 million, 153-bed hospital, which opened its doors in the fall of 2017.
Residents of The Ridge in south Courtenay were please to see the opening of the new hospital. Centrally located within the City of Courtenay, the hospital is easily accessible, only 15 minutes from The Ridge.
The new hospital is just one of many amenities the Comox Valley offers its residents, and just part of the reason real estate in the Comox Valley is booming. For more information about building your new home in Phase 2 or future phases of The Ridge, contact:

While tourists flock to Vancouver Island year-round to appreciate the natural beauty and charm of the communities, residents of The Gales in Ladysmith have the best of Vancouver Island living at their doorstep. Earlier this month a pod of Orcas was spotted hunting in Ladysmith Harbour, while downtown Ladysmith's First Avenue, was honoured as Canada's Great Street for 2017.
The Gales in Ladysmith boasts an enviable location, providing ocean views from the expansive decks and patios of these new luxury homes. Out the back door are forest trails, and all of this natural beauty is just a few minutes from downtown Ladysmith and all of its historic charms.
The Gales is a community of nearly 70 patio homes and condominium units. Currently there is one new three-bedroom townhome for sale and two more under construction. New Homes at The Gales are priced from $649,900.

Home decorating trends can be a challenge to keep up with. The designers at Budget Blinds of Central and Northern Vancouver Island can ensure that your window treatments reflect the latest styles. Window coverings come in an endless variety of options, so help from a professional can ensure that your choices suite your home, lifestyle and decor.
Budget Blinds has adapted to changing styles by offering classic designs, current trends and up-and-coming products. Some trends their designers are seeing for 2018 include drapery side panels that accent other window treatments, and dual shades.
Window panels easily bring a splash of life to a quiet room. Available in a vast selection of colors, patterns, and prints, window panels express your individual style and make a personal statement in any room. Create elegant living spaces, or choose fun and colourful fabrics for a child’s room. Panels are available in durable and long-lasting fabrics that are prepared to handle the stress and mess of any active household, helping reduce the need for cleaning or replacement from heavy wear-and-tear over time.
Dual sheer shades offer the privacy benefits of a window shade with the softening view of a sheer. When the vanes are open, the two layers of soft knitted fabric sheers maintain a level of privacy at all times, while allowing diffused natural light to enter the room. Sheer shades can be paired with other window coverings for a layered, dramatic look, but also look great as stand-alone window treatments.
