Affordable, Peaceful Island Retreat
Owen Bay is located on the south side of Sonora Island on Okisolo Channel, just above Hole in the Wall. Owen Bay has a long history; approximately 100 years ago it was a thriving coastal community and at times was home to a school, church and general store. It has evolved into a quiet, coastal vacation and recreation community with a small complement of full-time residents. There are government dock facilities located in the bay. This is an inland 1.41 acre property in the heart of the Owen Bay development, on a corner location between the two access roads that run through the development. The lot is nicely treed and fairly level. A historic rustic cabin plus a 10-year-old modern addition provide 480sqft of living space, with a small kitchen area and a sleeping area. The addition is separated from the original cabin with a covered walkway. There is an outhouse on the property, and water is from a shared creek source. Located within the heart of the Discovery Island group and surrounded by beautiful natural scenery and an abundance of wildlife, the Sonora Island area offers all types of outdoor recreation and sport activities - fishing, boating, diving, and wildlife viewing, while seafood such as crab, prawns, clams and oysters are all available within minutes of this region. There are also a few marine parks to enjoy within close proximity, including the Octopus Island Group Marine Park which is only minutes away. Access to the property is by boat or float plane only. Traveling to the property by boat takes a little less than 1 hour from Campbell River and approximately 40 minutes from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. During the summer months there is regular scheduled water taxi service to and from Campbell River.
