“An increasingly rare opportunity… beautiful, south-facing waterfront on Southern Vancouver Island.”

More than Victoria’s newest waterfront home community. It’s a new town!

Seize the day – everyday, in a tranquil setting with easy access to everything you need. Adjacent to the 365-berth Cheanuh Marina, Spirit Bay will be home to a village centre, general store, café, recreational and fitness amenities, a Homeowner’s Club and a Spa, all arranged to create a delightfully walkable town, carefully integrated into the natural surrounds. This sustainable new resort town offers the chance to ‘live away from it all’ while being only a 35-minute drive from Victoria and 15 minutes from Langford. Make your choice — live beside the Salish Sea where wildlife viewings are second nature and convenience is at your doorstep.


New seaside homes in Metchosin, B.C. A scenic 35 minute drive from Victoria.

Spirit Bay is away from it all but close to everything your heart might desire. It is a 15 minute drive to the larger centres of Langford and Colwood. These growing and thriving areas include shopping, banking, recreation facilities, great restaurants and the internationally recognized institutions of Royal Roads University and Pearson College. Off the southern shores is the protected, Race Rocks Ecological Reserve, a biologically rich and diverse area home to elephant seals, sea lions and sea creatures great and small. Few communities offer the restful setting of Spirit Bay so close to movie theatres, first-rate shopping and world-class dining experiences such as Sooke Harbour House. An easy and scenic 35 minute drive and you are in the Provincial capital of Victoria with all it’s beauty, it’s little-city charms and big-city offerings.
