Crown Isle is not about royalty nor is it about an island. It is about high quality homes and a quality of life that is hard to beat. This resort and golf course community is located about half way up Vancouver Island in the City of Courtenay, British Columbia. You do not have to golf to enjoy living in this great friendly neighbourhood.
Variety of Residences
Take a stroll around the wide streets of the Crown Isle subdivision and you will find many different styles of luxurious single family homes both on and near the well-known and highly regarded platinum rated golf course. People who live here come for the lifestyle and proximity to almost everything the Comox Valley has to offer. Walk to Tim Hortons, Costco and other local shopping. Enjoy the scenic vistas of the local mountain range, the Comox Glacier and the nearby Pacific Ocean. Visit friends in high end single family homes, condos, patio homes or townhomes. At night do not worry about finding your way along the sidewalks and wide streets because they are well lit with unique classy heritage style street lamps. As you walk around enjoying the fresh Pacific air you will encounter many other people outside doing the same thing.
The weather in this area is hard to beat. The summers are often pleasant and warm while the winters are very moderate with snowflakes a rare sighting. Micro climates are common and the nearby airport boasts the best weather in the Comox Valley region. Few parts of Canada can compete with the weather that is a regular occurrence in Crown Isle. Where else in Canada can you cut the grass or wash your car outside in February? Even in the coldest month the temperature rarely goes below freezing. When you do need a change the airport is a five minute drive away where you can catch flights to many different sun-drenched destinations.
Things to Do
Outdoor living, arts festivals, farmers markets, and wineries are a few of the many different things that are offered in the local area. Try fishing one day and fine dining the next. Watch the sun go down on the ocean, enjoy a meal in a local pub, and then go listen to some great jazz music in the city. The options are almost endless and they are only limited by your imagination. World class fishing, boating, and skiing are a short distance away from this centrally located community. When you get tired of going out and being active until the sun goes down, retire to the comfort of your home theatre room in your Crown Isle luxury home and let your senses be entertained.
Real Estate Options
If you choose you can have a home custom built to your needs in Crown Isle but remember that there is a waiting list for the better builders and that you will likely pay a premium when compared to buying a home that is already built and ready for you to move right in. You should really check out all of the Crown Isle homes for sale to see if you can find the right one for you. The Crown Isle community has a number of different subdivisions within its borders. The Britannia Place subdivision is a gated community of nice patio homes located at 3399 Crown Isle Drive that offer main floor living and many have great views of the 12th fairway of the golf course.
