Oak Bay

Rich in history and a quiet, close-knit community, Oak Bay is one of the oldest and most established communities in Western Canada. Executive estate homes blend stately, turn of the century construction with West Coast modern remodels and rebuildsall of which stand alongside wide, tree-lined streets. Shopping villages feature high-end shops, exemplary cuisine, and incredible art, all while maintaining the quaint feel of British high street.

These stunning homes and businesses are nestled on the eastern coastline of the southern tip of Vancouver Island, and despite being mere kilometers away from Victoria, are even closer in proximity to some of the best shorelines and white sand beaches in the region. Oceanfront views grandly extend up the Juan de Fuca Strait, and residents enjoy the slower, luxurious pace of life the community affords.
