North Rendezvous Island Lot 14
North Rendezvous Island Lot 14
This 10 acre property is on the north-west side of North Rendezvous Island, which is located in Calm Channel off the north-east side of Read Island. From this central location in the Discovery Islands you are minutes away by boat from spectacular locations such as Bute and Toba Inlet, world renowned Desolation Sound and Stuart Island to mention only a few.
Lot 14 is one of the more desirable oceanfront acreages on North Rendezvous Island with 511ft of south-west facing oceanfront. The property has stunning views looking towards White Rock Pass, which divides Maurelle Island and Read Island. The entire 10 acres is beautifully forested in good sized second growth that is primarily fir and cedar. This is a beautiful coastal setting.
The shoreline is primarily low-bank solid granite rock outcrops with a couple of little bays and provides relatively easy access to the ocean throughout. The shoreline drops off quite quickly and there are portions of deep water adjacent to the shoreline that would be ideal to situate deep water moorage and provide for easy, close access.
There is an extensive lower bench along the entire front of the property which extends 100ft to approx. 200ft back at a nice, gentle grade. From here the property starts to rise more dramatically, with a diverse and mixed terrain ranging from mossy rock bluffs to areas where one can hike up to the top of the property to the local road that runs the length of the island.
A modest one room 12ft x 20ft cabin with a small sleeping loft is perched along the shoreline and there is a standing pier in place to accommodate the installation of a dock and a ramp. This work is not complete.
There is a fresh water spring on the property which has provided a consistent, reliable source of domestic water to the current owners for over 30 years.
There are many beaches, sheltered coves, protected channels and islets along the intricate shorelines of the Discovery Islands and the rich waters fed by large tidal exchanges nourish abundant marine life. The breathtaking wilderness scenery, mild temperate climate, and natural beauty make this region a popular destination for visitors from around the world. Some of the many activities to enjoy include kayaking, diving, fishing, prawning and other outdoor activities. There are also a range of hiking opportunities and an abundance of marine and other wildlife for everyone to enjoy.
North Rendezvous is within close proximity to both Cortes and Quadra Islands where services and amenities are available. Cortes Island, part of the Discovery Islands is considered a major gateway to the very popular Desolation Sound region; well known for its waterfalls, secret coves, rock cliffs and tranquil natural beauty.
Access to Cortes Island is a 45-minute trip via regularly scheduled ferry service from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. Quadra Island is a short 10-minute ferry ride from Campbell River on central Vancouver Island. Campbell River and Lund just north of Powell River on the British Columbia mainland are approximately 20 miles from this property and less than an hour away by boat.
