Since we are fresh off a great and exciting Chilliwack Home, Leisure & Expo this past weekend we thought we would talk about our experience there as well as touch on some of the frequently asked questions from the show.
Firstly, we would like to take the time to thank all those who visited the Copper Coast booth as we were able to catch up with old friends as well as meet new acquaintances who seemed to share the same excitement about the project. While many folks still think that Port Alice is too far north on the island to develop such a project there were just as many who agreed with us, in the sentiment that it is only a matter of time until similar such developments start sprouting up in the next 5-10 years.
Remember, it was only a short decade ago that people thought real estate in Ucluelet and area would never work…
Secondly, we would also like to thank the organizers (Evergreen Exhibitions - Website Link) of the Chilliwack Expo for putting on a great show as the attendance and atmosphere for all three days was outstanding!! Well done.
Now, a little FAQ time!
The number one questions as it relates to the Copper Coast project was:
1) do they (housing on lots) all have to be the same?
Answer: NO! There are some general guidelines that need to be followed but folks that purchase lots are able to use their own plans and builders as long as they are built within the 3 year window.
2) What kind of fishing and rental packages do you have?
Answer: Entirely up to the customer! Our standard fishing and accommodation package is four nights and three days (8 hours on water) of fishing for $1775 per person. However, we are very flexible and always keep your needs front and center when making our bookings provided it doesn?t interfere with other guests plans. We have the luxury of being able to make changes as necessary as a result of our great relationship with the expert fishing guides in the area.
3) Is the road to Port Alice paved the entire way? This was a question asked quite frequently as many of our booth guests had been to the area, but not for some time?
Answer: Absolutely. The village of Port Alice is situated 30km off of Highway 19 (the main island highway) shortly after you pass Port McNeil. Visitors take the Highway 30 exit off of Highway 19 which again, is fully paved. Although it is 30km off the 19, it will take you a full 30 minutes as it is not only scenic but windy as well!!! From personal experience by the time you hit Highway 30 you are ready to be at your destination but the patience it takes to get to “the Alice” is well worth the wait!!!
We sincerely hope 2011 is going well for all our newsletter readers and have a great February!
