To find a pristine property like this at a reasonable price level is a rarity these days. The property gently slops from the back of the property toward the ocean.

The creek would be a great source for fresh water and perhaps a mirohyro plant for a good portion of the year. The location of the property is on the North Shore of Okeover Inlet, which is the side that gets the most sun. The North shore of Okeover Inlet is not serviced by Hydro.

Recreational retreat for one or more families. The boating in the immediate area is fantastic, Desolation Sound, Hompfray Channel, Teakerne Arm, Bute Inlet, Toba Inlet, the list goes on. The property is zoned Rural (not specifically zoned). Building permits are not required.

Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park
Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park (8,256 hectares) is British Columbia’s largest marine park. It includes more than 60 km of shoreline, several offshore islands and a gradually rising upland that contains a number of lakes, waterways and waterfalls. Unwin Lake, a 173-hectare body of fresh water, is the parks largest lake. Set back to the North and East, Coast Mountains soar to more than 2,400 metres. The warm waters surrounding the area teem with sea life. Ideal for swimming, scuba diving and feasting on your catch of the day, salmon, cod, prawns, crab, clams and oysters. Plenty other tasty morsels lie beneath on the oceans floor; to acquire them you must put on your scuba gear and get a little wet. Or you could take a short drive by boat or car to the Laughing Oyster Restaurant at the head of Okeover Inlet which is one, if not the best, place to eat in the overall area of Powell River.

Named after a city in Sweden, Lund was established in 1899 when the Thulin Brothers started to build the hotel, which is still in use today. Recently the hotel has changed ownership and has seen a major renovation. For most of the early years Lund served as a port for fisherman. Today Lund thrives on its attraction from tourists seeking the neighboring Gulf Islands and marine parks.
