Cowichan is reasonably good for those who need quiet surroundings, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case close to the railway line.
Driving is usually the best method to get around in Cowichan. It is especially convenient to park. It is impractical for pedestrians to move around in Cowichan since most daily needs are inconvenient to carry out on foot.
The sizeable proportion of single detached homes in the housing stock of Cowichan is an important part of its character. This reserve offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About two thirds of the units in the reserve are occupied by homeowners and the rest are rented. The buildings in this part of the Duncan metropolitan area are relatively new, since about one quarter of its dwellings were constructed after the year 2000, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s.
There are only a few primary schools in this part of the Duncan metropolitan area and consequently they can be a rather long walk away. Likewise, Cowichan does not have any high schools. Additionally, daycares are not very abundant and therefore not always within walking distance. Concerning eating, a portion of home buyers in Cowichan may be able to travel to the closest grocery store on foot, while others will have to turn to another means of transportation. Residents are served by about 20 restaurants and cafes as well.
