Car: Recommended

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. Sorry, but absolutely no children under 10 years of age allowed on property or in suite.

 

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, rowing her little boat, bird watching, swimming, hiking, 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 only about a 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. The boat can accommodate a 28-foot boat for guests. There is a gazebo-like structure on the wharf where it is nice to sit on days if there is a breeze, enjoy the sunsets or watch seals playfully popping up to watch you! You could even throw a line in and fish right from the wharf. There is an area in the forest with water trickling from a natural spring, dripping over a huge boulder into a trough which deer and birds alike use often...very 'zen-like'! We also added an enclosed flower garden with a few herbs. There is also another beautiful area on upper level for guests - a gazebo with seating area and wood burning stove that Daniel 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). The ocean views are endless and the whole place is very relaxing. Sometimes guests have plans of catching up on reading, but find themselves unable to stop gazing at the view and doing just plain nothing. The property is very private and about an acre in size and we give guests lots of privacy, unlike a bed and breakfast. The outdoor cooking area with 2-burner propane stove and small barbeque is another cooking area in addition to the kitchen in the suite. Nothing like being outside while cooking! The unique property is on side of a mountain on Francis Peninsula Road, and there are seldom cars driving by, yet is only about 5 minute drive from Highway 101. No traffic noise!
