YOUR OWN PRIVATE ISLAND AT THE PASSAGE TO DEPARTURE BAY!

A short distance to the 2010 Olympics location "Whistler", Hollywood North "Vancouver", The U.S. border and YVR International Airport. This 9 acre fully serviced Island is located in Departure Bay Nanaimo off Vancouver Island. Watch the dolphins, fish for salmon, golf and find world renown scuba locations at your doorstep.

The light beacon at the East end of this 9 plus acre private Island guides the B.C. Ferry to safe harbor at Nanaimo, Vancouver Island. Jesse Island is a Private Island in Departure Bay Nanaimo which is densely covered with original growth pine, cedar, arbutus and oak trees as well as native blackberries upon which descendants of goats brought to the Western Archipelago by explorers centuries ago feed to this day.

Groomed trails meander thru this unspoiled foliage giving visitors views of wild animals and birds such as the bald eagles which nest in the trees overhead. Contrasting with the primitive nature of the East 1/2 of the Island which faces into the rising sun and towards the snow capped mountains of the mainland coastal mountain range. The West end of the Island has been improved with a log constructed family retreat with 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, library and 2 car garage.

The main house is cantilevered atop a bluff overlooking a nice large beach area and deepwater docking facility for 3-4 boats, caretakers home and Mens and Women's sanitary facilities with hot and cold water showers for campers who visit as guests of the owners. City water, power and telephone are delivered to Jesse Island through submarine conduits which eliminate the utility problems encountered on other private Islands.

The Port of Nanaimo which has evolved into one of the most popular of Vancouver Island tourist destinations is but a short 15 minute boat trip from this private Island and provides golf courses, night clubs, yacht clubs and gourmet eating establishments for those who wish to break their isolation with a day's outing or an evening ashore.
