As Conde Nast Traveller writes, 'Western Canada is a natural paradise: mind-blowingly, breath-robbingly beautiful...The sheer profusion of fauna (the place is crawling, creeping, and swimming with wildlife), the off-the-grid unspoiled nature, and the muscular ruggedness of the landscape are simply fantastic'.
Watch the seaplanes land and sailboats pass by as you relax in your oceanfront retreat. Gorgeous sunsets and sweeping views of Pender Harbour and the surrounding mountains are visible from nearly all rooms of this West Coast inspired contemporary cottage.
Keep your eyes open for seasonal visits from bald eagles, hummingbirds, and yes even whales and dolphins which have been known to visit the harbour. Enjoy the regular appearances of seals, sea otters, deer, loons, and many other beautiful West Coast species.
Bring your boat or rent one and tie up to the large private dock with deep water moorage then head out and explore the many gorgeous nearby inlets.
Perfect for entertaining, find all the amenities of home including a large kitchen with all major appliances, outdoor gas BBQ, gas fireplace, washer, dryer, central vacuum, and radiant floor heating in the bathroom.
Off the property, mountain and ocean-side hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, golfing, fine dining, casual dining, horseback riding, lake swimming, antique and local wares shopping, scuba diving, a day at the spa, tennis, fishing, crabbing, yoga, etc...are all close at hand.
Pender Harbour is a convenient 2 hour trip from downtown Vancouver, including a scenic 45 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. Sea planes offer another unique and scenic travel experience and land nearby in the Harbour.
We are sure you will love your stay here as much as we do every time we come home to this property.

About the owner: We are two professionals with three kids, based in North Vancouver. We're avid travelers who love good food and wine, spending quality time with friends and family, and being active outdoors in nature. We enjoy the city life and all of its culture just as much as we enjoy escaping it and hanging out in the woods at our coastal home.
Why the Owner Chose Madeira Park, BC, Canada:
Because it's one of the most beautiful natural places in the world! My husband grew up in Ontario where summers at the lake are quite common. So when he moved to Vancouver he immediately looked for a place nearby on the water where we could escape to on the weekends with friends and family.
