About the neighbourhood
Across the road from Arbutus Ridge Golf Course and Tennis Dome. On Telegraph Road. Only 35 minutes north of Victoria, south of Duncan, and 6 minutes from Mill Bay Centre and Brentwood College School. 10 minutes to Shawnigan Lake School. Close by there are over a dozen wineries, gourmet restaurants, and wonderful farm markets. The Cowichan Valley has the highest average year round temperature in Canada. Cowichan means 'The Warmlands'. Because of the warm ocean currents, we are green all year round, and there is no need for your winter coat or snow boots. You can be outside every day, enjoying the warmth. Many people come here for a month or longer to escape Winter! Please contact Jane for longer term GREAT RATES.
How to get there
If you arrive in Vancouver, it is easy to take the Ferry over to the Island. There are many sailings every day. Look up the BC Ferries website for times.
