    Description

    Picturesque 9.9 acre lot with a seasonal creek, dug out pond and fenced pasture area. The sunny upper portion of this property has a cleared building site with a micro-hydro dam in place. The elevation gradually declines down to a natural valley gorge filled with ferns and mature timber, eventually draining into a marshland at the bottom. The varying degree of terrain on this property makes it incredibly unique and opens it up to many potential options including your own self-sufficient hobby farm. Adjoining this property is 320 acres of Crown land with multiple trail systems leading to numerous private beaches and bluffs overlooking the Straight of Georgia. Located approximately 3.5 km from False Bay where the Lasqueti passenger/light cargo ferry docks. Your own off-grid paradise awaits you!

    Area Data

    Lasqueti Island is a secluded, off-grid island located within the Strait of Georgia about 50 miles Northwest of Vancouver. The island is accessed by regularly scheduled passenger/light cargo ferry and barge service from French Creek (Parksville/Qualicum Beach area) on Vancouver Island.

    Island residents strive to live a self-sufficient lifestyle and produce their own power via micro-hydro, solar, and/or wind mechanisms. Phone and internet services are available. On island, you will also find a school, health centre, post office, community and arts centres, dance and yoga studios, volunteer fire department, ambulance, restaurant/pub/hotel, gas station, propane service, small café/bakery/grocery, provincial and regional parks, nature reserves, farm and feed supply store.

    The island has a reputation for sailing and sea kayaking which is considered among some of the finest in lower British Columbia. The island and surrounding islets have amazing scuba diving and snorkeling locations. Lasqueti enjoys waters warm enough for swimming in the ocean in summertime.

    Vegetation

    The island is generally divided between drier and wetter areas. The latter often characterized by red cedar and the former by native cacti, arbutus and succulent plants. Some old growth forest still exists on this island as well giving it a unique flora and fauna coverage.

    Fishing, kayaking, and sailing.

    History

    Lasqueti Island was named in 1791 by Spanish Naval officer José María Narváez, commander of the Santa Saturnina after Juan Maria Lasqueti, a prominent Spanish naval officer.
