Desolation Sound is a name and region recognized worldwide as one of the most beautiful areas along the British Columbia mainland coast. Naturally beautiful and diverse, the area is also known to have some of the warmest summer time ocean temperatures anywhere along the west coast of North America. The predominately calm waters of Desolation Sound are home to a variety of indigenous marine wild life and the mainland, with its spectacular inlets such as Toba inlet to the north, is home to all types of mainland wildlife. Access to local communities providing a variety of services is relatively quick and easy. Lund with marina facilities and road access to Powell River is located approximately 15 miles south and east from the properties and Campbell River on Vancouver Island is approximately 28 miles to the southwest.
