Madeira Park bed and breakfast description
Enchanter Bed and Breakfast is located 1 hour and 45 minutes north of Vancouver, BC, in beautiful Pender Harbour on the Sunshine Coast. Pender Harbour's huge, protected deep harbour with many intriguing bays, coves, and islands is often called the 'Venice of the North'. It is truly 'a bit paradise' with some of the best diving, kayaking, and hiking to be found anywhere. In addition to the ocean, pristine fresh water lakes offer swimming, paddle boarding, canoeing, trout fishing and waterskiing.
The Enchanter Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful, uniquely constructed geodesic home in a serene parklike setting. It is ideally perched to provide wonderful views of the harbour, and is surrounded by towering cedar trees, beautiful gardens, a natural stream and pond, resident deer, and often has eagles flying overhead.
The elegantly designed suite has magnificent views of the harbour, private entrances, ensuite bathrooms, cable TV, DVD, wireless internet and an outdoor hottub. Outside the suites is a never ending veranda deck for relaxing, watching the harbour and the beautiful sunsets.
Our little paradise offers fabulous hikes such as Pender Hill and Mount Daniel, which give you views across the Malaspina Strait to Vancouver Island. Other hikes in the area include the newly constructed Suncoast Trail, world famous Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park, Francis Point Marine Park, Sakinaw Outflow, and many more hikes too numerous to mention.
Only half hour drive away is the world famous Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park with its rainforest, ebb tide and reverse tidal waters. Walk in through rainforest to view the swirl pools created by the ebb tide, or walk in on a flood to view the spectacular reverse tidal rapids, some of the fastest in the world.
Being surrounded by water, both fresh water and salt water, lends itself to numerous water activities such as kayaking,paddle boarding, boating and swimming.
We partner with Sunshine Coast Tours to offer marine tour packages such as the stunningly beautiful Princess Louisa Inlet Tour to Chatterbox Falls. Another way to see Skookumchuck Narrows Rapids is by taking advantage of our Sechelt Inlet Tour package.
For those who have English as a second language and wish to improve their English language skills, we offer English Language adventure holidays. English Language Adventure Study Holiday (ELSAH CANADA) packages are a fun adventuresome way to improve English skills while on an adventure holiday!!
Start each day with cheerful hosts serving you a delicious two course breakfast of fresh fruit, croissants, German apple pancakes, Belgium waffles, etc. on the sundeck overlooking the beautiful blue water of the harbour.
Your hosts, Michel and Helen, enjoy sharing their little paradise and feel confident that you will have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. With our European backgrounds we also speak French and Schwyzerdütsch for your convenience.

Why the Owner Chose Madeira Park:
Several years ago we fell in love with the beautiful Sunshine Coast, a peninsula a short 40 minute ferry ride from North Vancouver, BC. We were drawn to the pristine beauty of Pender Harbour, often named “The Venice of the North”. With its captivating waterways, incredible hiking, swimming, etc., it is a playground for the outdoor enthusiast. When we stumbled across the uniquely constructed geodesic home on the harbour, the seeds were planted to fulfill our dream of building our business.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
We enjoy our beautiful rural setting with the blue waters of the harbour, the towering cedar trees, natural stream and pond, resident deer, eagles soaring overhead, and the serenity. The sunsets on the harbour delight us as no two sunsets are the same. We love to share to share our little piece of paradise with our guests from near and far. We appreciate meeting new people and delight in creating wonderful new friendships.
