Current Vancouver/Victoria Time is
Victoria Retirement Lifestyle

Victoria is fast becoming Canada's # 1 choice for retirement lifestyle. Victoria has the mildest climate in Canada due to the prevailing westerly winds blowing off the Pacific Ocean & the shelter of the Olympic Mountains. It's not uncommon to enjoy sailing fishing or golfing in the middle of winter. Victoria is home to over 30,000 pleasure crafts, ranging from sport fishing vessels to ocean going yachts. Please call now for your complete retirement package, or drop us an email, we think it's a little bit of heaven over here maybe you will too!

We have communities such as Sidney By the Sea, that are being carefully planned for seniors. Age friendly homes ( homes with the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor) are being constructed within walking distance to the town center and are coming equipped with home offices, high speed internet for you surfers and information buffs out there. Gourmet kitchens, hardwood floors, professional landscaping, nothing to do but move in and start enjoying life. The streets are level and easy to maneuver on foot or by scooter. The town center has all the amenities: banks, retail stores, coffee shops ,legal resources, libraries, doctors and dentists offices' community centers. The town center is within walking distance to the ocean front promenade and moorage.

Sidney by the Sea is close to ferries and the airport... Or you may prefer the fashionable milieu of business, shopping, arts and entertainment of the downtown lifestyle. Surrounded by sea walks, cityscape and waterfront communities such as Songhees are just a 10-minute stroll to downtown yet removed from the hustle and bustle of the core. Cycle or drive - everything is moments from your door. Resort style developments such as Shutters Spa and Residences thoughtfully harmonizes view, landscape and the community. Amenities such as a full service spa, fitness center,infinity swimming pool, private courtyards,water falls,over sized decks, a full-time concierge make this lifestyle truly exceptional. Whether you buy today or wait ... Please contact us today regarding complete property management of a retirement property suited to your future needs.

As the eldest of Canada's baby boomers are reaching retirement age suitable age friendly homes are becoming scarce. We are seeing an inflow of seniors from Alberta, Ontario the U.S. as well as Vancouver. Victoria still does have terrific retirement options...but we believe the choices will be limited in a very short time due to the increasing demand. Please give us a call to discuss your ideas and the options available to you today.
