Welcome to the Neighborhood of Chase River

Only a short distance south of Nanaimo, Chase River is a quiet, semi-rural community that is still conveniently close to amenities. Many of the homes in this area are older models that have kept their charm throughout the years. Homes in this neighbourhood are a mix of rustic farmhouses, mature post-war homes, and newer contemporary builds. This area is also home to the Cinnabar Valley community.


Cinnabar Valley is a small community located between Chase River and Extension, about ten minutes south of downtown Nanaimo. It is a beautiful, wooded area with many of the homes situated high on the slopes. These homes benefit from incredible views of the valley and beyond, with just a short drive to nearby amenities.

Nanaimo River is a favorite place to spend hot summer days, located only minutes from Cinnabar Valley. There are plenty of areas to choose from, depending on what you are looking for!
