I have been living and spending time on Pender Island since 2003. You can do it all here, hiking, boating, kayaking, golfing and fishing.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Southern Gulf Islands
What is special about this property is that it is very private, on the ocean and has a gorgeous view of Mount Baker.

If you are looking for peace and quiet (we were), this is the ideal place to stay. We came back refreshed and ready to meet the world again. The house is older, but very clean and ideally located. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Richard was available for questions and wonderful to work with on reservations etc.
Gorgeous views to Saturna Island and Mount Baker, nice backyard with deckchairs right on the ocean. House and furniture are somewhat dated.
Stunning view of Mt Baker at sunrise and sunset
Lots is great about this location. Richard was very responsive to our requests. The cottage is undergoing some needed updating but the view makes up for any short comings. We had a great time.
We were sad to leave. It was a wonderful place to stay.
We loved your place Richard. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a great stay. The weather did cooperate for the most part. The decks are awesome. The only thing that I missed was a clear picture of Mt. Baker. Oh well, next time.

Great ocean views
This was a beautiful spot , nice views , lots of marine traffic (we unfortunately hit the only week of rain this summer ) .
House was a bit dated , but well stocked with everything we needed .
The South Island is very quiet , lots of trails , and easy to bike .
One warning , bring your supplies , and fill your tank before you come , supplies are shockingly expensive here if you forget anything .
Rustic retreat on South Pender
My wife and I spent an amazing week at this property in August of 2016 and we don't hesitate to recommend it to others. Keep in mind, this is not a new home with modern furnishings to match. It's somewhat rugged but very comfortable, with all the comforts of home and a view that is second only to its privacy. When we weren't relaxing on the wrap-around deck or admiring the views from the adirondack chairs on the lawn, we spent our time exploring the Pender Islands (north and south).
I wish I could add photos of the moon rising over Mount Baker with the ocean rippling in the foreground. Perhaps the Orcas we saw off the south tip of the island would be a better choice or maybe the seals we saw relaxing on the rocks while we were kayaking in the nearby bay. In any case, you will either have to take my word for it or go see for yourself.
This was our first experience with VRBO and I am pleased to say it was a very good one. We got exactly what we hoped for; good value for our money and a relaxing week in a great setting. We booked at the last minute but the owner was very accommodating. He even went over to the island to meet us and ensure the property was clean when we checked in. We have already recommended this property to friends who asked where we stayed on Pender and although it might not be next year, we will definitely be returning to this property down the road.
