Enjoy Beachcombing and Forest Hikes From Your Front Door at The Gales in Ladysmith

The Gales oceanviewWhile much the rest of the country prepares for their first snowfalls and freezing temperatures, residents at The Gales are still strolling nearby beaches and neighbourhood forest trails. Set on the coast of Vancouver Island, in one of Canada's most temperate climates The Gales is a 68 condo and patio home development, featuring luxury villas-style living.

Perched high above the ocean on a rocky outcropping, The Gales is located near the Ladysmith Harbour and the historic downtown.

Curved streets, cul-de-sacs and manicured landscaping help build a sense of community here. Walkways meander throughout the development and where they pass between residences privacy has been retained via the use of arbours and trellises. Tying in the proximity to the ocean, all street lighting has a nautical theme. 

With grounds-keeping included at The Gales you will enjoy freedom from yard and maintenance work, leaving more time to enjoy everything that this Island lifestyle has to offer. 

The architectural style is West Coast Contemporary, with warm earth tones and a variety of darker tones to complement the coastal landscape. More than beautiful ocean and mountain views, this luxury neighbourhood includes mature trees and rock outcroppings. The natural surroundings include forest, hiking paths, a mountain stream, and wildlife. Apart from city life, yet close. The climate is mild and the outdoors are at your doorstep.
