Checking out properties we may actually be able to afford one day is out love language. Living on an island is the ultimate dream, and what you may not know is that owning a home on a B.C. island isn’t an impossible task. We found six prospects. From ocean views to massive backyards, these homes have all the island living perks you are looking for. Time to start budgeting. 

You don’t have to wait until you win the lottery to own a home. 

Living on one of B.C.’s many islands is a life goal for many, ourselves included. From the ocean views to the luscious green landscapes, the islands are where it’s at. 

Thankfully for all of us, living on an island doesn’t mean we have to drain our bank accounts entirely. 

While there are tons of luxury homes, there are also lots of places on the more affordable side. 

We did a little digging around and found six adorable houses on various B.C. islands that are for sale right now. 

All the houses are under $1,000,000 which is a little more doable than the ones we often see with a couple more zeros at the end. 

Each of the houses offers something unique so you are bound to find something to your liking. Just remember to invite us to your house warming party.
