About Kent & Krista Maurer

My husband Kent and I retired to our dream life on beautiful B.C.'s Sunshine Coast. I was a high school art teacher and now an artist. Kent, a retired member of the Vancouver Police Department is constantly occupied with the care and up-keep of our home, cottage, and grounds. Our home sits on an acre waterfront lot overlooking some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. We look forward to sharing this amazing place with many guests. Welcome!

Kent & Krista Maurer purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kent & Krista Maurer chose Pender Harbour

We built our cottage (carriage house) first and lived there while our main home was being built. We chose this location because it was simply the most beautiful place we had ever seen. We have travelled many places but believe nothing compares to Daniel Point! It may be off the beaten track for some but that is why we love it here!

What makes this cottage unique

The sunsets are unforgettable! Wildlife abounds all around; multiple pairs of eagles have a nests close by, daily deer sightings are not uncommon. Explore amazing volcanic rock formations and tidal pools with a myriad of sea creatures just down a set of steps to Daniel Point Marine Park at the end of our driveway.Pods of Orca Whales as well as large schools of feeding dolphins are spectacular sights from time to time. The star filled night skies will take your breath away!

A Perfect Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We agree with the 69 5-Star reviews! A truly wonderful experience in this stunning spot with 280 degree unobstructed views where we felt instantly at home. There were many touches that made it very special and so easy to settle in and relax. We hardly left because it was so perfect although did take advantage of some local walks, hikes, and restaurants. Immaculately clean, a well-laid out design, well-equipped kitchen, comfy bed and the lovely artistic touches (Krista is a talented artist!) made it even more spectacular. It was our fourth rental in the area, and by far, was the best.

Kent and Krista were great hosts. They were warm, hospitable and also respected our privacy. We received a stunning art print that will get framed and hung as a wonderful memory of our time in Blue Orca cottage. We couldn't have asked for better experience and we will be back! Thanks so much Kent and Krista!!!!!

The best VRBO we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible - the design is so good that you can find shade or sun when you need it; you can always have a view over some aspect of the ocean; the space inside just flows perfectly from kitchen to eating area to living room, etc. I had never truly appreciated before what a good design adds to a house.

The area is quiet but well suited for walks/ hikes - we did Pender Hill (5 minutes away), Francis Peninsula park (30 mins away with lovely views and amazing arbutus trees), Skookumchuk Narrows (40 minutes away) and a short stroll to Daniel Point which is just below the property. All walks had something of interest and were not at all hard.

Kent and Krista were great - respecting our privacy but going out of their way to ensure everything was OK. The work they have done to provide everything exceeds any expectations we or anyone could possibly have.

If you want to get to know this area stay here; if you need a relaxing break, stay here; if you love the ocean or fishing or kayaking, stay here. It has it all!

Thank you Kent and Krista - this was a wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in the Blue Orca Cottage. The incredible views, comfortable surroundings, and personal touches made it feel just like home (with better views!). This is a really special place that you can't help but love and that you will miss as soon as you drive away.
