Pender Islands house description

Whale Watch is a magnificent oceanfront vacation home that overlooks Swanson Channel in the Canadian Gulf Islands. The name says it all with this executive, custom built home that is located on North Pender Island. Whale Watch presents an incredible view of the ocean and all that comes with it. Resident Orcas, fantastic sunsets, soaring eagles, pleasure boats, cruise ships and ferry traffic. Relax out on the deck or in the hot tub, and take in the experience. Whale Watch offers the finest in island living. This stunning 3 level home has every feature required to make your getaway a memorable one. The main floor’s open concept is perfect for entertaining and interacting with your guests from the kitchen, living room or dining area. The kitchen is a chef’s dream and when you have the warmth of the wood burning stove and the spectacular views, this immaculate, open concept room is what vacations are all about. Whale Watch has 3 bedrooms, 2 with their own ensuite, and a “rec room”. Whether it is the sauna, the hot tub, the pool table, or the 50” TV, Whale Watch has everything you will require to make your vacation dream become a reality.

Pender Island, off the west coast of Canada gives you a small taste of the Mediterranean, blended with a unique Canadian flavor. The Gulf Islands enjoy less than 30 inches of rain a year and are surrounded by sheltered waters, strong tides, and dramatic coastlines. Pender Island offers a unique blend of seclusion and activity in a breathtaking rural forest setting. Its population of just over 2000 enjoy the many scenic hikes and trails throughout the island and in the recently created Gulf Islands National Park. There is an excellent 9 hole golf course, tennis courts and 3 marinas on the island providing opportunities for sailing, fishing and buying fresh crab right off the dock! There are numerous ocean beach accesses, a freshwater 'Swimming Hole' (at Magic Lake) and the not-to-be-missed highlight of exploring the island by kayak. There is a well established theatre company, a Farmers Market, a Library and a warm and supportive community. Countless deer roam the woods, eagles soar above and Orcas (Killer Whales) can be viewed right from the deck of our house.

Victoria, the capital of B. C., is just a short ferry ride away and is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city with first rate restaurants, great entertainment and many sightseeing delights. Vancouver/Whistler was the venue for the 2010 Olympic Games and Vancouver is a less than a 2 hour ferry ride away. Skiing at Whistler is world-renowned. Alternately, regular seaplane flights can get you to Vancouver in 20 minutes.

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: Ron and Darold are Directors of one of Canada's most prestigious Performing Arts Colleges. In addition, to being fans of the arts we both are avid sailors having sailed Greece, Turkey, Australia and the British Virgin Isles as well as off the West Coast of Canada. We golf, swim and enjoy the hiking and beach-combing that our lovely Pender Island home gives us access to.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love sitting on our deck watching the daily parade of Whales that swim by every summer. Another favorite is to pick up fresh crab from Browning Harbor and having a feast!
