                  Relax at a unique, tranquil, oceanfront hideaway, nestled on the mountainside of a peninsula at the entrance to beautiful Pender Harbour (over 50 km of meandering shoreline). You are our only guest in this secluded paradise! The 1,000 plus sq. ft. suite in the lower level of our house is the ideal base from which to do many trips! We’re only minutes away from many warm lakes. We are only a 3-min. drive away from beautiful Francis Point Marine Park. The walk is a 1-hour easy round-trip from parking area. Eco-sensitive area with many unusual plants. Small trail (through old growth trees) leads to sea and Francis Point Lighthouse – popular area for scuba divers and kayakers. Great views of Vancouver, Texada Island, and some Gulf Islands. Take a day trip to Princess Louisa Inlet (a beautiful, scenic example of a fjord on the west coast. The almost mile-high cliffs rise from quiet waters with over 60 cascading falls (best in about June at snow melt). Chatterbox Falls flows year round. Charter a boat and go prawn/salmon fishing! You might even see a killer whale from the suite...we did today, May 20, 2014!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We (Daniel and Gaylene) moved to the Pender Harbour area permanently in spring 2011 from Langley, BC. Daniel is French-Canadian and grew up in a small town north of Montreal and is an amazing guy regarding anything electrical, electronic and has a great talent for designing and is constantly 'tweaking' our property to make it an interesting place to visit. He enjoys prawn fishing and other fishing and is often out on his boat. Gaylene was born in Vancouver, lived in England for 9 years, then on a sailboat for a year in the Mediterranean before returning to B.C. in 1995, and has travelled extensively. She loves gardening, bird watching, swimming, cooking. Daniel and Gaylene enjoy the wildness and serenity of the Pender Harbour area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Madeira Park:
                  We had been visiting Pender Harbour for a few years, and dreamed of having a house on the ocean, and loved the house immediately when we saw it, especially the breathtaking ocean and mountain views. We are so close to the ocean, it is a good stone's throw from the house!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It's all about the water view here! ...not to mention the peacefulness of the place. The air is so clean and the water is beautiful and clear. We love to watch all the boats coming and going. There is never a dull moment. Being on a peninsula, the house is very quiet - no traffic noise at all! It is nice to walk, jog or bicycle around our neighbourhood. Deer, eagles and seals can frequently be seen and other wildlife. We extended the wharf to accommodate a 28-foot boat for guests, put a gazebo-like structure on the wharf where it is nice to sit on days if there is a breeze and also enjoy the sunsets or the seals playfully popping up to watch you! You could even throw a line in and fish right from the wharf. Daniel also added a small area in the forest with a small water feature from a natural spring, dripping over a huge boulder...very 'zen-like'! We also added an enclosed flower garden (with herbs that guests may use). There is also another beautiful area on upper level for guests - a gazebo with seating area and wood burning stove that has been modified to double as a great pizza oven - ask us about this! There is also an uncovered 200 sq ft deck that guests never want to leave (a nice addition to the 80-foot long covered deck that guests already enjoy).
