Seniors’ information Parksville Qualicum Beach Real Estate

The Parksville Qualicum Beach area is known as the Palm Springs of Canada. Although the weather isn’t as warm as the desert it is considered the best in Canada. In April 2000, the United Nations recognized the region of Oceanside as one of only seven “biospheres” in Canada. This designation was based on the marine, alpine and meadow ecosystems coexisting within such a small geographic area.

This designation allows us to enjoy outdoor activities such as golf, walking, hiking, and fishing, all year round. This area is alive with clubs and activities for retirees that are too numerous to list! A plethora of friends await you to join them.

Please look on our Parksville, Qualicum links page and browse the various clubs and activities available to Parksville Qualicum Beach residents. Our medical facilities are excellent, as is our transit system connecting Parksville, Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo to the quaint shops in Qualicum Beach as well as to all the major big box stores and malls in Nanaimo. Having everything close by, living near the ocean in a quiet, great location with all necessary amenities and wonderful people makes this place a fabulous choice!
