Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


This is an exceptional national and international destination for people looking for heaven on earth, right here in Canada. It's a dream come true for people who want to downsize into something extraordinary. The community is full of people looking for the same thing: fun, excitement and complete renewal in retirement. You'll find 40 different clubs, with activities ranging from cribbage to windsurfing, and everything in between.

The temperate climate, year round activities, astonishingly beautiful scenery and excellent design and architecture make this a place worth visiting, just so you can dream about living here. People moving here from out of the area will be thrilled by the local scenery and wildlife, as well as local kayaking, hiking and other outdoor activities. Visitors to the area describe the local nature as "magical and beautiful." As an area that is growing, in a province that is a real estate investors' dream, you can expect your investment here to grow over time.
