  • Description



    We live and work on a small remote Gulf island called Decourcy Island. Touted as one of the most boater Friendly Islands in the southern gulf islands, Decourcy is an off grid only community with farm stands only and a beautiful provincial marine park that includes hiking, anchorages and camping as well as a beautiful sunny beach. Our family lives here full time with our three and sometimes four children.

    We take our kids to school five days a week (weather dependent) on Gabriola island, which has ferry access to Vancouver island as well as all of the other amenities.

    The ocean is a short walk through the trees and several beaches are all walking distance. The Pirates Cove provincial Marine park has a roughly 4 km hiking trail and you are also able to hike around and through the whole island on the roadways. It is a great location for being outdoors and immersed in a coastal Canadian lifestyle.
