Quiet island WATERFRONT paradise. Spectacular southeast views from wall-to-wall picture windows on both levels. Upper and lower decks for summer outdoor enjoyment, greenhouse for spring, gorgeous interior for winter. Wonderfully landscaped with easy care plants and fruit trees. Recently installed heat pump with central air. Stone countertops. And there is a fully contained suite for your guests. Hourly ferry service with a ten minute ride to downtown Nanaimo, long-term parking, Harbour Air Seaplanes (20 minutes to Vancouver), HeliJet, and BC Ferries. Airport is fifteen minutes from downtown with direct flights to Toronto and Calgary. The island has a Pub and restaurant, library, museum, community centre, fire department, community garden, six parks, and the island is actually part of Nanaimo so it has city water and sewer. Great place to retire. Most people here drive electric golf carts (yes, they are legal and insurable for road use on this island). Imagine sitting by the pond and waterfall with a nice hot tea or cold drink watching the ferries, sea lions, otters, harbour seals, and orca go by. Eagles, herons, ducks, sea birds, with virtually no black flies or mosquitoes. Endlessly entertaining, especially from the vantage point of your hot tub. Delivery service available from a nearby supermarket and liquor store or for pretty much any other large things you might need. Exempt from BC's Speculation Tax. REA3%.
