Gabriola is known as the “Isle of the Arts” for a good reason. It may have the highest density of artists of any place in Canada. With a population of over 4,000 the island is home to a mixture of retirees and families. Housing prices have been rising in the past few years but they are still reasonable compared to some of the neighbouring districts in Nanaimo.

Gabriola is accessible by a ferry that leaves the Nanaimo harbour approximately once an hour. While you can take your car, many people walk on and off to do there shopping in downtown Nanaimo.

Testimonials

Marie and LOVE Real Estate Team are simply the best. Marie's excellent advice, knowledge of all things house-related, her attention to detail, and outstanding commitment all factored into us getting the house of our dreams! Throughout our experience working with Marie, she demonstrated her integrity time and again through her dealings with us and with other realtors. Throughout the process of looking for and purchasing our new home, she was patient, understanding, and an absolute pleasure to work with. We have come to trust her completely and we would highly recommend her to anyone.

Chris and Miki Flynn

Love Real Estate Group proved an invaluable help when helping us through the maze of buying a new home, especially when for us it was our 1st home in a new country. No problem was too big and their fun approachable demeanours meant that the whole process was a lot less stressful than it might’ve otherwise been.
