Has road access (not developed) ... Private bay ... Could be subdivided ... Heavily treed with native flora ... No services.
The property is pretty much as Mother Nature intended, has never been developed and is a beautiful mix of native trees and rocky outcrops. There are no services to the property as there is no Hydro on the island and Lasqueti only has a passenger ferry with several scheduled crossings a day (approx. 45 minutes). Water is gathered during the rainy season and stored in tanks. This is pretty much wilderness and the property is untouched, Lasqueti has a population of approx. 400 interesting people. Road access could be developed from the south.
72 acres (appox.1,300 ft x 2,300 ft) with 850± ft along the water
Located on the east shore of Lasqueti Island 80 km northwest of Vancouver.
A passenger-only ferry connects the island to the community of French Creek, near Parksville. The ferry makes two to three runs per day, five days per week, weather permitting.
Mix of drier west coast flora, including arbutus, Douglas fir. Manzanita, Rocky Mountain juniper and small patched of prickly pear cactus among others.
The eight little bays and the many secluded beaches along Lasqueti’s shoreline are fabulous for exploring by kayak or boat. If you bring your own kayak with you, BC Ferries will treat it as hand baggage, and no fee is charged.
The gravel roads on Lasqueti Island are popular with mountain bikers, and for those who journey the 15-km length of Lasqueti Island, the ride winds up in Squitty Bay Provincial Park. You’ll be ready to drink from the freshwater pump in the park’s picnic area by the time you arrive.
Squitty Bay Provincial Park offers picnicking and swimming, located 9 miles (15 km) south of the ferry dock at False Bay. Picnic tables are arrayed among the spray-shaped forest of Douglas fir and strawberry arbutus (madrona). This idyllic location overlooks two narrow coves where the water is clear, green, and warm in summer months. A portion of the park is fenced off to protect it from the feral sheep that graze all over the island. Years ago, a small meadow was cleared above the beach at Squitty Bay, where there are still signs of an old orchard.
Lasqueti Island was occupied by Natives from the Pentlach Band at the time of the first settlement by Europeans in 1860. Aboriginal artifacts have been found on the island, and middens (ancient mounds of discarded shellfish shells) can still be found near many of the island’s beaches. The island was named in 1791 after Juan Maria Lasqueti, a prominent Spanish naval officer.
