The Greater Victoria area boasts some of the finest golfing around, and conditions allow enthusiastic golfers access year round. Whether you want to stay close in and do a casual nine holes, try something new for the whole family, or make golf the main theme of your stay, a multitude of options awaits.
Here at Salish Seaside RV Haven we are very excited at how quickly the final touches on the site are drawing together in the wake of our upcoming Grand Opening! The event will be limited to guests of the RV park, and we expect plenty of great food and dancing. (We do have a few unbooked sites left, so if you aren't currently a guest at Salish Seaside RV Haven and you would like to attend the ceremony, get your booking in before April 21st!)
The fun doesn't stop there! Once the Grand Opening Ceremony is over, we'd like to invite you to take the chance to formally explore some of the best Esquimalt BC has to offer. Take a look at some of the most fascinating spots for you to explore:
Well, it looks like we're finally on the home stretch! The siding is almost finished and what a difference, it looks great (thanks to Sawyer Custom Carpentry)! Next for the exterior is to finish various small details, downspouts, etc. The upstairs is coming along slowly but surely. The patio slabs have been laid for both balconies, and the glass contractors should be installing the glass railings in the next week or two. I can’t wait to sit out there with a cold beer watching the world go by — after work, obviously. We also had our fabulous landscape designer in this week figuring out what beautiful (deer-proof) indigenous plants and flowers to place around the base of the welcoming poles.
All in all, we're well on our way to being in fantastic shape for the upcoming peak season. In fact, we're already taking pad bookings for the spring and summer, so if you were eyeing a lot now is the time to grab it! To offer some extra incentive, we've collected a peek of what you can expect to find during the refreshing days of May in Victoria:
With one of the most mild climates in Canada, Victoria BC is a common destination for retirees, vacationers, and tourists alike. Even in the "chilly" off-season months of winter, there are plenty of outdoor and indoor activities for all ages to take part in. Here we've collected a list of some of the most popular places and events in the city for you to explore — let us know in the comments which ones are your favourites!
The Christmas season in Victoria is a magical and beautiful time of the year, celebrated with lights and events throughout the city. We've collected some of the upcoming holiday events for you to explore, including parades, markets, concerts, movies and tours. Don't forget to pop into local coffee shops and restaurants as well and ask about their Christmas specials.
It’s been a busy few weeks! I want to start by thanking all our wonderful guests to date, it’s been fantastic getting to know some of you and putting faces to the many names! The main amenities building is slowly coming along and we’re looking at a mid November completion date (for the downstairs). Thank you all for your patience with this beast. As you would expect, it has gone way over time and budget! The lamp-posts are in and Wi-Fi will be going up and functioning by this time next week.
As of today the concrete pads are all poured, pedestals are in, services to each pad are complete. BC Hydro have finally agreed to hook us up to mains power on Tuesday next week! Much of the sod has been laid and paving of the entrance driveway and perimeter road in the park is underway for completion today. The stone sitting wall is constructed around the perimeter and it looks fantastic! There are lots of little jobs, signs, lamp-posts, security cameras and Wi-Fi to get hooked up but this week will mark the end of the major construction activities.
The project is coming along nicely and completion is set for September 2017. The first 14 pads are poured. We tested the pads with a 45'Class A single axle motor coach and jacked it up on the pads. All went well. The second story is going on the amenity building. We should have the ground floor washrooms shower and laundry done by Sept 1 but the meeting room upstairs may not be finished.
The office/store is ready for drywall with all construction and electrical in. Phone lines and internet should be in by month end. It's going to look fabulous!
As of today all the major services are installed, both mains and to individual pads: sewer, water, gas. Electrical and communications conduit are going in next. The foundation for the amenity building is ready to pour concrete and then the framing can start. The sewer lift station will be delivered on Tuesday. Although a tremendous amount of work has been done, looking at the site there's little to show for it just because it's all underground. C'est la vie.
