Build Your New Home at The Ridge in the Comox Valley - Named One of BC's Top 5 Retirement Destinations
"Kw’umuxws, what the local First Nations called Comox, means plentiful, and few retirees would disagree," the magazine says.
Highlighting the benefits of affordable real estate, regular air service and a brand-new hospital set to open in 2017, BIV is also keen on the outdoor amenities of the area: "The small scale of the community and many amenities, including the Crown Isle golf course and spectacular fishing and boating opportunities, make Comox an attractive retirement destination. The annual B.C. Shellfish and Seafood Festival celebrates local fisheries, and, when paired with local wines, local seafood offers a multi-faceted gastronomical experience.
"Seniors with a taste for powder have easy access to Mount Washington, Vancouver Island’s best-known ski hill, while local parks offer several seaside and inland hiking trails for all ability (and mobility) levels."
The Ridge in Courtenay is a new real estate development which embraces all of the highlights of living in the Comox Valley, with ocean and mountain views, walking trails and other community amenities, all just minutes from downtown Courtenay, The Ridge offers affordable opportunities to build your dream home.

Here you can get into a brand new custom-built Estate-style home in a new master-planned community, starting at $430,000, just a fraction of the price a similar home would cost in Canada's larger cities.
