Property description

Built on an acre of forest and exposed rock, this modern designed split level, open beam cedar home is ideally located a short forty minute scenic ferry ride from Vancouver and one hour drive up the spectacular Sunshine Coast highway to Garden Bay, Pender Harbour.

Called the Venice of the coast, the harbour, lakes and surrounding mountains, combine to create an eco-system renowned the world over. Add a list of activities, vacation amenities, gourmet dinning, local pubs, gift shops and stores, renting a vacation home just minutes from everything is the first step to a memorable family summer adventure or romantic get away. This unique home is also available over Christmas and New Years.

My unique home has all you need to enjoy a comfortable, luxurious vacation stay and is a centrally located sanctuary in the heart of this beautiful West Coast jewel. Abundance of large lake and mountain facing windows, expansive wrap around deck with covered patio creates a live in or out lifestyle that brings you closer to nature. The Grand Room is dominated by a fourteen foot beamed ceiling, floor to ceiling stone fire place and big comfortable furniture. Nothing you need to make your stay outstanding is lacking. I welcome you to read more about this exceptional property and to come visit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Welcome to my vacation home in one of BC's most stunning lake and ocean settings - Garden Bay/Pender Harbour. Just two hours by ferry and scenic drive from Vancouver, my modern open beam cedar two level house is filled with my favorite toys and original artworks. It is just a very short walk down from the ridge to the clear pristine waters of Garden Bay Lake or five minutes to harbour's edge. Hike up Mt Daniel for a 180 degree view of the Georgia Strait. The golf course, horseback riding, ocean kayaking, fine restaurants and shopping are really only minutes away. It is a paradise - please come and stay awhile.

Why the Owner Chose Garden Bay:
I first discovered Pender Harbour sailing the coastal waters. My son moved his family to the area in the early 70's and settled on 4 acres of land in Garden Bay. Many holiday visits convinced me this was nirvana and the place to live out my life. It has not disappointed. Now I would like to share my home and this beautiful place, while I continue to explore the coast on my sailboat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My uniquely designed open beam cedar home sits on an acre surrounded by old growth fir trees providing a feeling of serenity and remoteness, but only minutes from all the vacation amenities. Situated on a ridge overlooking Garden Bay Lake.
