Spring has Sprung on Vancouver Island

Spring has sprung on Vancouver Island. Flowers have been out for months already and the cherry and plum blossoms are now lighting up the streets with their pink glow.

One of the primary reasons people relocate to Vancouver Island is because of the temperate, year-round climate - an added benefit of this is the area's long gardening season. Early signs of spring like crocuses and daffodils typically pop up in February with a rainbow of tulips close behind. These flowers start to appear in March and April along with the helleborus and camellias.

The streets look beautiful when the cherry and plum trees bloom, showing off their magnificent canopies in a variety of shades of pink. 

Once April and May warm up, the colourful rhododendrons (which can grow to size of trees here!) and native dogwoods show off their spectacular blooms. 

Relocating to The Ridge on Vancouver Island

Families and retirees are looking to relocate where they can enjoy a temperate climate and live in a vibrant community. In Courtenay, the recreation opportunities are endless - at The Ridge, you'll live just 20 minutes from numerous golf courses, hiking, snow sports, world class mountain biking, water sports, fishing, beach walks and other outside activities.

The Ridge in the Courtenay offers easy access to an active, outdoor lifestyle, with a variety of new homes to choose from. This friendly community is also just a 20 minute drive to the Comox Airport (YQQ).

Comox Valley Builder Monterra Projects have been building custom-desgned homes and multi-family projects in this Vancouver Island community for many years. The Monterra team focuses on building relationships with their new home owners from the design process through to completion. They are now starting development of a modern patio home project at The Ridge called Tanglewood. 

Monterra Projects are now conducting a soft launch of Tanglewood and pre-sales are being offered on the Phase 1 patio homes.

The kitchen flows into the dining and living room with large windows offering plenty of natural light and views onto the patio and backyard. Engineered hardwood runs throughout the house. The living room has a coffered ceiling and a fireplace with a custom mantle. 

In some floor plans, the master bedroom is located at the back of the home, overlooking the landscaped backyard.

Adventure Awaits in the Comox Valley’s Provincial Parks

Vancouver Island is an outdoor lover’s paradise, and one of the main attractions for people relocating to the Comox Valley is the sheer volume of adventures that await. 

The Comox Valley is surrounded by provincial parks that offer opportunities for hiking, camping, beachcombing, fishing and more.

BC’s oldest provincial park - Strathcona - is famous for its hiking trails that range from family-friendly walks to multi-day treks. These trails will take you from lakeside beaches to waterfalls, and mountain peaks. Covering more than 250,000 hectares, Strathcona Provincial Park has adventures for everyone. Many sites in the park are an easy day trip from Courtenay and other areas of the Comox Valley. 10Adventures.com offers a guide for some of the most popular hikes and well as general information for planning your visit.

If you’d rather spend your time on sandy beaches, two of the area’s most popular provincial parks can offer just that. Miracle Beach offers broad sandy beaches and plenty of campsites. Sites book up early at the popular provincial park which provides forest trails and tide pools to explore, and plenty of space for swimming and sunbathing.

If you want to take a trip to Hawaii, but don’t have the time, hop on a ferry for a day trip to Hornby Island’s Tribune Bay Provincial Park, know as “Little Hawaii.”

With close to 1 km of fine white sand beach and tropical aquamarine water, the south-facing Tribune Bay is one of the warmest saltwater swimming areas in the province, with near-tropical temperatures in the summer months. Enjoy beachcombing and picnicking, or head to nearby Helliwell Provincial Park for some fabulous hikes and views of the beach. Trails along the Helliwell Bluffs offer stunning views and unique flora.

All of these amazing adventures and more await when you live in the Comox Valley. Residents of The Ridge in Courtenay are enjoying some of these stunning ocean and mountain views every day!

Here is what a few of the residents have to share about The Ridge:

Jean and Brenda

“I was looking for a home where my mom could move in with me and we learned that The Ridge allowed legal suites to be built within the subdivision. We went to see The Ridge and fell in love with it. This is a quiet neighbourhood with beautiful views and pathways and parkways for walking. There are excellent trails for biking and we are located walking distance to the ocean. It feels like we are living in the countryside within the city.

"We really enjoy living here. We love our neighbours too, they are fantastic! ”

Brianna and Jeremy

“We were looking at quite a few homes in different locations and the first time we visited The Ridge we fell in love with it, because of the layout of the neighbourhood, the walking trails for our dog, and the amazing mountain and ocean views. We were looking for a safe and quiet neighbourhood for our family and our two young children. When looking for our new home, we wanted a location that provided quick access to outdoor activities in the Comox Valley. Most of the places we like to go to – like Comox Lake and Cumberland – are only a 15-minute drive away.

“Life at The Ridge is very family-friendly, there is a nice mix of young families who interact with each other, retirees and other residents of all ages. The community is being built to a high standard and there is a relaxing atmosphere in the neighbourhood. We love living at The Ridge!”

Home is where the heart is at The Ridge. We can help you find the perfect match for you and your family.
