Western Island “The Wild Coast” - Tofino, Ucluelet

Along most of the coast, the western parts of the Island are mostly uninhabited. However, the town of Tofino includes some of the most sought after pieces of luxury real estate to be found anywhere on the Island. The isolated location of Tofino along with its access to the Pacific Ocean and its position at the borders of Pacific Rim National Park have made it a major tourist destination for many years and recent development has focused on recreational properties. Almost all are waterfront, and the styles include condominiums as well as huge stand alone luxury homes.

While rain is the order of the day most of the year on the western part of the Island, most residents prefer the opportunities afforded by isolation and the incredible natural beauty that defines this region. Residents and tourists alike enjoy whale watching, surfing, kayaking, hiking, and storm watching (in winter) as well as the occasional dip in the remotely located but must see Hot Springs Cove. Neighbouring fishing village Ucluelet is also becoming a community of interest to the luxury real estate buyer. As land in Tofino becomes scarce, developers have moved south to this town creating some outstanding luxury real estate opportunities.

As you might have guessed from the content of this article, many of the finest luxury real estate opportunities on Vancouver Island come in what we term “undefined” communities. This is particularly evident in the case of the west coast of the island, where some of the finest homes can be found in the unincorporated districts. This is the case up and down the Island; the proximity of the Pacific makes luxury development a real possibility no matter where you go and you will see many pieces of luxury real estate, and luxury amenities, all over Vancouver Island.
