Discover Waterfront Real Estate

Lantzville waterfront real estate listings often feature generously-sized homes with plenty of living space, plus multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Lots here tend to be larger than in nearby Nanaimo, and many have outdoor areas for entertaining and for kids to run around in.

Architectural styles vary, with everything from classic West Coast homes featuring timber accents, to contemporary custom-built homes with modern design elements. Common features include large windows, ocean-facing decks, and sizable lawns.

Interiors often feature open-plan living spaces, formal dining areas, kitchens with contemporary appliances, and living rooms with fireplaces. Higher-end homes may have luxury features such as swimming pools, hot tubs, and spa-like bathrooms.

Although plots of land next to the waterfront occasionally come on the Lantzville real estate market, they are few and far between. However, when they do, they are a great investment for those who want to turn their vision of a dream home into reality. Looking for a waterfront home in Lantzville?

Living in Lantzville, BC

Lantzville has a relaxed atmosphere where outdoor living is celebrated and the ocean is central to the lifestyle. Residents who own waterfront property in Lantzville can take strolls along the beach, cycle on paths along the water, or simply soak up the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

There are also numerous parks in Lantzville and hiking trails nearby. Popular parks include Copley, Huddlestone, and Rotary Park. If you prefer to be out in the wilderness, head to the Copley Ridge Recreation Trail to explore the 8.6km of trails through forests. Alternatively, you can spend the day at the Winchelsea View Golf Course.

There are only a few thousand people living in Lantzville proper, so there is a tight-knit atmosphere to the community. Neighbours tend to know each other and look out for each other, and it is not uncommon to run into people you know while out and about. If you end up seeing someone you know, make sure to say, "Hi!"

Lantzville is mostly residential, but there are number of places where you can do some shopping and dining. These include Walmart, Costco, Home Sense, The Lantzville Village Pub, and Sushi Ryu, found just off of the Island Highway.

Top Lantzville Waterfront Highlights & Attractions

The Lantzville community is separated into two parts: Lower Lantzville, down by the waterfront, and Upper Lantzville, on the south side of the Island Highway. Originally a mining community, Lantzville is now a small, welcoming (and growing!) community located right on the coast.

Apart from outdoor recreation, Lantzville hosts numerous community events. From yoga to live music at the Lantzville Village Pub, there's always something happening. Of course, the neighbouring cities of Parksville (located 20 kilometers north) and Nanaimo (located 16 kilometers south) also offer a multitude of shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreation opportunities. From  hanging out at the water at Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park to experiencing the annual bathtub races in Nanaimo, Lantzville residents are never far from all the action.
