About the neighbourhood
We live in rural Saanich, 20 minutes from downtown Victoria. If coming from the BC Ferries, or Anacortes Ferry or the Victoria Airport we are halfway to Victoria. We are surrounded by forests and farms. In Saanich West and Central Saanich there are beautiful 'rain-forest' hiking trails that follow the lakes, and up small mountains, and down to the ocean. There are hiking trails suited for all fitness levels. The ocean can be reached on both sides of the Saanich Peninsula. On one side there are many small bays and inlets separating Vancouver Island from the mainland; and the ocean on the other side of the peninsula is the 'Salish Sea'...that leads to the Pacific ocean. Nearby is Island View Beach a beautiful spot for beachcombers to walk and picnic. Kayak rentals are available in Brentwoo...
