Private and virgin 3.6 acre island......one of the largest and most accessible on beautiful Cowichan Lake, Vancouver Island, B.C. Over 1,200 feet of south-facing walk-on lakefront with unobstructed southern views across the widest part of the lake and the north arm to the east. Situated a few hundred meters off the Youbou shoreline, with convenient access by boat available by additional arrangement at a private marina in neighbouring Irving Bay.

Development Permit in place for a house footprint of 2,400 sq. ft., a 300 sq.ft. storage shed, and a proposed year-round dock.

Zoning allows year-round residential use, with the bonus of a Bed & Breakfast business if desired.

The morning sun rises early over the eastern end of the island, bathing the building site in light. The perfect balance of trees giving just the right amount of shade at the height of the summer sun, with the prevailing summer breeze keeping you refreshed, and the natural shade provided by Sa-Seen-Os Point in the early evening ensures a cool sleep at night.

About Cowichan Lake


Cowichan Lake offers pristine clear water, warm enough to enjoy summer activities like swimming, water skiing, boarding and tubing. Fishing is good year-round, even from the island itself. The lake is the largest freshwater body on southern Vancouver Island. Leave the big city behind and create your personalized recreational retreat, or live full-time. Billy Goat Island is close to amenities yet nature is right at your door, with clean air, stunningly clear night skies with views of the stars that city folk don't get to see.

The settlement of Youbou offers the security of civilization close by to the north, and to the south is an uninterupted viewscape of the open water and the mountains in the distance. Kick back and enjoy the natural privacy of the south shoreline, enjoying the typical sunny summer weather, reading a good book in your hammock, or strolling the natural trails that run the length and breadth of the island.

The town of Lake Cowichan offers an excellent supermarket, specialty shops, pubs, liquor stores, garage, a variety of restaurants, and two hardware stores. The town of Duncan has big box stores, the charm of the old town centre, and is less than a 20-minute drive away.
