Squamish real estate covers a wide range of detached houses, condos and townhomes, ensuring there is something to meet all budgets and requirements.
Squamish is a fantastic community to live in, offering city amenities alongside a warm, small-town feel. Sitting at the north end of Howe Sound, it also combines stunning sea and mountain views.
Thanks to that unbeatable location, Squamish is also a treasure trove of outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, climbing and much more. Sea, lakes, extensive trails and cliff faces mean local residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to adventure.
One of the area’s most famous attractions is the Stawamus Chief, a steep but rewarding hike which offers stunning views. The Sea to Sky Gondola also provides access to those beautiful views without a hike.
There are several public and private schools, providing a range of options for families buying Squamish real estate. Squamish is also home to two further education institutions, Quest University — which was Canada’s first private, non-profit, secular university — and a Capilano University campus.
Squamish also provides all the amenities you could want. It has both big-box stores, as well as a vibrant selection of small businesses on Cleveland Avenue, Squamish’s main drag. There, you can find excellent cafes, eateries, clothing stores and more.
The area around Squamish is also popular for filming, being close as it is to ‘Hollywood North’ (Vancouver). It has served as a location for a variety of films and TV shows, including Insomnia, Star Trek Beyond and The Returned.
