Ladysmith was originally called Oyster Bay because of the rich oyster beds found in the harbour. If you’re looking for a small town culture with outstanding seaside amenities and marina facilities, then Ladysmith might be a good place to begin your search. More affordable than Victoria and Nanaimo, this area is proud of its community spirit – and it shows!
Sea Views From the Hillsides
Ladysmith benefits from its hillside location facing Ladysmith Harbour and the Southern Gulf Islands. It might be said that water view property and outdoor recreation are two important lifestyle influences for residents. A local hospital, all levels of schools, and shopping make it possible to live, work, and play locally. Search houses for sale in Ladysmith to find your Cowichan Valley dream home.
