My family and I have been enjoying time at the Shingle Bay house, on Pender island, for half a decade now and keep coming back. The house is situated in an extremely peaceful and quiet location on a delightfully wooded property, overlooking Shingle bay. Things we love: the wood burning stove, views of the bay, wildlife, nearby hiking trails, Frisbee golf, nearby beaches and just the peace and simplicity! Bring your bike, boat or kayak..... there are so many things to do, so many places to explore and vistas to be enjoyed! There cannot be many better views right outside of the front window. There is a nearby marina where last year we were lucky enough to see a pod of Orca Whales come by. The house is large, open concept and over two floors with two bathrooms. There is a large wrap around deck and steps down to a dock in the bay. Just grab some and drink from the local stores, kick back with a book and ENJOY! The ferry ride over is pretty nice too on a good day ;) Family Thompson.

This property was beautiful. It had all the amenities needed to cook a big turkey and all the food for Thanksgiving. It is set in a quiet bay with a small park for the kids to play just a 5 minute walk away. It was immaculate and thanks to the owners we were able to find everything we needed. We went hiking with 2 trails within walking distance of the house. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Why the Owner Chose Pender Islands:
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

The house has 8 ft. high windows overlooking a small bay with a national park reserve across the bay. We have water access and a small dock in the bay suitable for boats up to 18 ft. The Bay is a perfect spot to Kayak from and you can store your kayaks on the dock safely. the house is fully equipped with all kitchen appliances including dishwasher and microwave.

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
