                      We live and raised a family of four in Victoria BC. We wanted a vacation Cottage close enough to visit on a daily as well as weekly basis. On Pender Island we were able to obtain an excellent undeveloped lot on which to build a place of our own design

A built in vacuum is available. We have decking on 3 sides of the house plus a lower deck at the ocean side protected from the rain and with a two person swing. As well as the water access on our property there is a small park with playground and beach within a five minute walk. The house is situated on a dead end road with only 6 other houses so their is no traffic noise
