Close to the heart of the island but away from the bustle of the big city, Fairwinds is closer than you think!

Near yet Far

The Westerly’s prime waterfront locale provides an exceptional quality of life for those seeking a home surrounded by the beauty and solitude of the west coast while still having access to first-class amenities and city living. Conveniently located between Nanaimo and Parksville, it is easily accessible by car, boat or plane.

You can fly from downtown Vancouver to Nanaimo in only 20 minutes or catch a ferry, which provides both automobile and foot passenger service frequently year-round. If you are already on Vancouver Island, take a leisurely drive up the coastline and enjoy the scenery en route!

Once you are in Metro Vancouver, catch a BC Ferries sailing from either Tsawwassen or Horseshoe Bay. Check the timing on the BC Ferries’ schedule as this will also determine which route is best for you.
