Lower Lantzville – Seaside Paradise
Located just north of Nanaimo, Lower Lantzville is a quaint seaside town along some of the most beautiful coastlines found on Vancouver Island. New developments continue to pop up here, increasing the area’s popularity and value. This neighbourhood features many large properties, most of which have stunning ocean views.
Locals can be found beachcombing with the mainland coastal mountains as a backdrop, along with breathtaking views of the Winchelsea Islands. In addition to the marvelous beaches, Lower Lantzville also features several parks including Copley, Huddlestone, and Rotary Park.

“Lantzville is an area known for its small community charm and the residents feel very strongly about ensuring that it remains that way. It is a place where neighbours care about neighbours and a place where if you pass someone on the street, you are greeted with a friendly ‘hello’ regardless of whether you’re a known resident or just visiting.”
