Genoa Bay Farm is a stunningly beautiful, 379-acre waterfront farm, situated on Genoa Bay, near Duncan BC.

The farm occupies the entire south-facing valley-bottom of the Genoa Bay watershed, providing a completely unique landscape under the absolute control of the owners of Genoa Bay Farm.

This incredible property is comprised of 7 individual Land Titles; two of which are waterfront Titles. The Land Use constraints are under the administrative direction of the Agricultural Land Commission and the Municipality of North Cowichan [Zoned Agricultural – A1, see attached], both of which provide significant opportunity for additional real estate development.

The Minimum Lot Size for the current A1 Zoning is 12 hectares [29.65 Acres], indicating that two of the existing Titles can be subdivided, yielding a potential of up to three new lots for the possibility of 10 Titled lots, providing for the opportunity of up to 16 Titled, single-family homes by way of Building Strata. The landscape is sloped to the valley bottom and Genoa Bay, providing terrific valley, mountain and ocean views from every lot!

The property features approximately 2,500 lineal feet of waterfront, with approximately half fronting onto each of the two waterfront Titles. Additionally, there is approximately 122 acres of cleared agricultural fields to produce hay and the grazing of cattle, and, approximately 257 acres of mature timber, mostly Douglas-fir, with some Red Cedar and Western Hemlock.

Genoa Bay Farm is located near the community of Duncan B.C., and is situated between Cowichan Bay and Sansum Narrows, which separates Vancouver Island from Saltspring Island. The Farm is located at the end of a road which serves Maple Bay B.C., passes through the Farm and terminates at the tiny community of Genoa Bay, just South of the property. Genoa Bay is an all-weather protected anchorage and the waterfront parcels provide opportunity for installing deep-water docks for year-around boating. Most services and amenities are available in Duncan. Charter vessel services are available at Cowichan Bay, Maple Bay and Genoa Bay.

Genoa Bay has a Marina and a Restaurant. The Marina is committed to providing their guest with a relaxed, enjoyable stay. Their credo is “Harbouring Contentment”. Genoa Bay Marina website.  

Marine Fuels are available in Cowichan Bay and Maple Bay. All other fuels are available in Duncan.

A regularly scheduled Seaplane service is available between Maple Bay and Vancouver International Airport [CYVR], provided by Harbour Air. Visit their website to find out more or book a flight.
