Why Choose Chemainus?

Being a historic coastal town, there are many older as well as newer homes. It’s difficult not to see the ocean from many parts of town so subsequently, many homes have wonderful ocean views although this can be of varying degrees. There are also a good number of apartments and condos, which offers an additional flavour of accommodation opportunities for the home buyer.
