Bighorn Meadows Resort in Calgary Herald


True Key properties offer best in turn-key living

Sooke and Radium, B.C.: What if it was possible to own the recreation property of your dreams? And what if it was affordable and located in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, or steps away from the Pacific Ocean? True Key Resorts opens the door to that possibility.
Over the last decade, True Key Resorts has turned vacation dreams into realities with its fractional ownership properties. With one-eighth shares available from as low as $34,900, fractional ownership is the logical way to own titled property that is both a financial investment and an investment in your family’s future.

“It holds its value just like conventional real estate, and it fluctuates accordingly with the current market and conditions. So when it’s time to sell, you’ll see the same value as you would investing in whole real estate without tying up a large amount of capital, and right now is the time to buy low,” says director of sales and marketing Valerie Bracken.

By purchasing a one-eighth share in any of True Key Resorts properties, homeowners not only get a vacation home for six weeks a year, they also own property that can generate rental income during the weeks they don’t use. For vacationers who want to see the world, exchange programs are available through Interval International and RCI.

“The vacation property can put you on a beach in the Caribbean, or golfing in the desert, or an urban vacation in downtown New York City. Or it can be a weekend family vacation at your home resort,” says Bracken.

True Key Resorts currently offers three different properties: Bighorn Meadows Resort, Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort, and Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina. All three contain the same turn-key convenience, professional design and come fully furnished with washer and dryer, barbecue, fireplace and everything from cutlery to hand towels.

Bighorn Meadows Resort sits on the ninth fairway of the prestigious Springs Golf Course in Radium Hot Springs, B.C. With 17 golf courses minutes away, along with seven ski hills, two lakes, the Radium Hot Springs, and national and provincial parks on all sides, this resort is truly the heart of a great Canadian playground.

Fractional ownership in Bighorn Meadows starts at $59,900 for a three-bedroom condominium.

Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina is located on Vancouver Island, a 30-minute drive from Victoria and five minutes from some of the best fishing in the world. Two- and three-bedroom townhome condominiums are available, starting at $49,900.

Whether you are relaxing in the outdoor hot tubs, watching the seals frolic in the Pacific Ocean, or counting the starfish as you stroll down the marina, Sooke Harbour Resort provides the perfect location to get away from it all.

Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort sits steps from the sandy beaches that Parksville, B.C. is famous for. This Vancouver Island resort offers something for everyone — from golfers and wilderness enthusiasts to fishermen and those who like to lay on the beach with a good book. Ownership in a two-bedroom property starts at $34,900.
