The Lifestyle of Our Master Planned Community in Royal Bay

Known as Royal Bay for Her Majesty’s Royal Navy ships that would moor in the sheltered waters of Esquimalt Lagoon, and use the cliffs for canon practice, a modern chapter is now being written.

This 400+ acre complete community is the vision of award-winning builders GableCraft Homes, offering the best of ocean living with urban enjoyment and a dynamic mix of shops, schools, restaurants, cafes and endless walking trails, bike paths and greenspaces.

Here you’ll find modern and stylish single-family homes, townhomes and multifamily dwellings that feature value-added opportunities for homeowners.

About the Location

There’s no hibernation season at Royal Bay, and residents here can take advantage of year-round community amenities that can be enjoyed throughout the year here.

Spring means garden blooms, farmers markets, hiking with the dog, taking the kids to the playground and enjoying the blooming wildflowers and greenspaces.

Summer means whale spotting, water sports, surfing the local beaches, golfing the pristine fairways of the southern island, beach volleyball games and iced coffees on sunny shop sidewalks.

In Fall, enjoy gourmet local farm-to-table foods, take in the nearby wineries for a sunset sip with friends and family, and bike the pathways home after a patio dinner.

Even in winter, thanks to our mild climate, popular activities can still be enjoyed during the off-season whether it’s teeing off, jogging the trails, surfing (in a wetsuit), or discovering local community amenities.

Living Here

There is something about living near the water, isn’t there? It’s as revitalizing as it is peaceful and calming. At Royal Bay, this is an everyday lifestyle.

The chance to build a fresh and thriving seaside community comes along once in a lifetime, and as developers we embrace the opportunity and responsibility to do it right.

Once complete, Royal Bay will feature two main neighbourhoods woven within the natural environment. Residents can step out their doors into the green spaces and trails, or take to the water for kiteboarding, kayaking and other marine activities.

In nearby public areas like The Landing and The Commons, you’ll find seaside restaurants, shops and other services offering more urban pleasures.
