Ladysmith Real Estate

This sunny seaside town faces the morning sun from a steep slope overlooking dramatic ocean landscapes. Although it's only 19km to the south of Nanaimo, it still feels isolated and a bit ... frozen in time. A lot of the history has been kept on display here.

People are moving to Ladysmith for its affordability and its beauty. Homes with ocean views are typical, and there are endless mountains to play in behind the town.

There is a lot of room for new homes, if the town is willing to expand outside the boundaries that have been largely intact for its 115 years.

Ladysmith Origins

This area was called Oyster Harbour in 1900, and it was the farthest point from Ladysmith, South Africa, where the British were besieged by the Boers.

Here in British Columbia, James Dunsmuir was packing up the coal operations and miners' homes in Wellington (now part of North Nanaimo) and moving them by rail to two new locations:

  • Extension - where more mines were being sunk
  • Oyster Harbour - where the coal was to be shipped

Dunsmuir renamed Oyster Harbour as Ladysmith, in recognition of the siege lifting in South Africa.
