Pender Islands cabin description

Relax and get reinvigorated at this enchanting oceanfront eco-cottage with dock and moorage. Excellent crabbing, kayaking, hiking, whale watching (Orcas) and birdwatching. Restaurants, wine store, bakery, etc. nearby. Surrounded by everything a nature lover and adventurer could hope for, the surroundings are resplendent with a vast and lush beauty. Your privacy is assured as the cabin is the only home on this 3.5 acre property which you will have to yourself. But don't imagine it. Come can enjoy it!


Kayaking in the Gulf Islands : KINGFISHER COVE IS IDEALLY LOCATED FOR KAYAKING AND WHALEWATCHING AS WELL AS BIRDWATCHING, SAILING, BOATING AND MORE. During mid March the hummingbirds arrive from Mexico and entertain their worshiping audience with their skydiving talents as they soar in less than seconds to the top of the giant Douglas fir trees and dive even faster down to sea level, another 50 feet below the deck off the main level of the cottage. Faster than you can blink, they are back at the feeder with their beak inserted, drinking the treats we have left for them. Who wants to watch TV when this show is available? Rent a kayak nearby or bring one with you, leave it on the dock and paddle whenever you wish to many locations including out into Boundary Pass, only 20 minutes paddling from the dock, to the location where the Orca are most frequently sighted. Or, take a guided tour with someone who knows the local waters. Canoes are also available for rent nearby or bring one with you from Vancouver, Victoria, or from Sidney.

SKYWATCHING FROM KINGFISHER COVE: The night skies from the decks are amazing -- meteorites showers, brilliant constellations, and very little light contamination. Astronomers have sought us out, specifically for the quality of our night sky.

Crabbing off the Dock! : Catch fresh crab off the dock. Oysters also available nearby or go fishing in the waters just outside the harbour for salmon, etc.

The fish boats also sell fresh fish at Hope Bay on North Pender Island.

There is an excellent farmer's market on Saturdays, so you can add the best of island produce to your menu planning for meals on the deck over the sea.

          Oceanfront property in Canada's beautiful Southern Gulf Islands between Vancouver & Victoria, also easily accessed from Seattle. The Gulf Islands are located in the Strait of Georgia, just northwest of Washington's mainland & the San Juan Islands, including Orcas, Stuart, & San Juan Islands. Also very nearby are Sidney and Vancouver Island, the Saanich Peninsula & the other Gulf Islands - Galiano Island, Mayne Island & Saltspring Island. Pender Island is famed for its sailing, fishing, kayaking, whale watching, cycling, mountain biking, bird watching, hiking, swimming, boating, farmer's markets and other rural activities such as horse riding, artist's studios & more. We are ideally located only 10 kilometers from the ferry terminal at Otter Bay. Only 4 kilometers to shops, fitness centers, gift stores, restaurants, bakeries, wine & beer stores & other shopping. Mt. Norman Park entrance is very nearby & our property & the marine park share a boundary.

          Other Activities: Whale watching, Birdwatching, Frisbee Golf, Kayaking, Boating, Sky watching, Exploring Artists Studios, Farmer's Market, or just hang out on the property and sky watch. The night sky is amazing with great views of the stars, meteorite showers, etc. Our place was hand selected by astronomers as a superb place when Haly Bop was doing its thing! They returned again as they loved it so much! Our property is frequented by eagles, kingfishers, loons, cormorants, and many other sea and land birds. Time in the hammock is well spent if you like to watch for wildlife and birds. However, Pender Island does not have any bear, nor any skunks or squirrels. We do have lots of deer, mink, seal, otter and more.

          Golf: North Pender Island, immediately across a little bridge that joins North and South Pender, has an excellent golf course.

          Ski: Mount Washington on Vancouver Island or Whistler on the mainland are both a day trip away, so stay at Kingfisher Cove between visits to both ski hills! A winter stay on Pender is wonderful. Build a fire, cozy up with a book, or have a hot bath in the soaker tub, or a hot shower in the main bathroom.
