Property type house

About the property

Luxurious, romantic self-contained 1 bedroom ocean view suite with full kitchen

Enchanter Oceanview Suites is located 1 hour and 45 minutes north of Vancouver, BC, in beautiful Pender Harbour on the Sunshine Coast. Enchanter Oceanview King Suite located in a beautiful, uniquely constructed geodesic home in a serene parklike setting. This ocean view suite is completely self-contained with a master bedroom with king size bed, ensuite bathroom, complete modern kitchen, lounge and dining area. There is private guest parking, private entrances and outside sitting area on the veranda deck. It is ideally perched to provide wonderful views of the harbour, and is surrounded by towering cedar trees, beautiful gardens, a natural stream and pond, resident deer, and often has eagles flying overhead.

The elegantly designed self-contained suite has magnificent views of the harbour, private entrances, ensuite bathroom, cable TV, DVD, Netflix, wireless high speed internet and an outdoor hottub. Outside the suites is a never ending veranda deck for relaxing, watching the harbour and the beautiful sunsets.

Pender Harbour's huge, protected deep harbour with many intriguing bays, coves, and islands is often called the 'Venice of the North'. It is truly 'a bit paradise' with some of the best diving, kayaking, and hiking to be found anywhere. In addition to the ocean, pristine fresh water lakes offer swimming, paddle boarding, canoeing, trout fishing and waterskiing.

Our little paradise offers fabulous hikes such as Pender Hill and Mount Daniel, which give you views across the Malaspina Strait to Vancouver Island. Other hikes in the area include the newly constructed Suncoast Trail, world famous Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park, Francis Point Marine Park, Sakinaw Outflow, and many more hikes too numerous to mention.

Only half hour drive away is the world famous Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park with its rainforest, ebb tide and reverse tidal waters. Walk in through rainforest to view the swirl pools created by the ebb tide, or walk in on a flood to view the spectacular reverse tidal rapids, some of the fastest in the world.

Being surrounded by water, both fresh water and salt water, lends itself to numerous water activities such as kayaking,paddle boarding, boating and swimming.

Many boat tours are offered in the area, such as Sunshine Coast Tours who offers marine tour packages such as the stunningly beautiful Princess Louisa Inlet Tour to Chatterbox Falls. Fishing tours are also available. For a wonderful narrated tour of the harbour, the Slocat Tour can be booked very inexpensively.

Your hosts, Michel and Helen, enjoy sharing their little paradise and feel confident that you will have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. With our European backgrounds we also speak French and Schwyzerdütsch for your convenience.

Helen holds a masters degree in teaching second languages and has over 25 years of teaching experience. She has spent many enjoyable years teaching English as a Second Language. Now works part-time, her wish is to continue to use her love of teaching.

Helen or Michel purchased this house in 2003

Why Helen or Michel chose Madeira Park

Several years ago we fell in love with the beautiful Sunshine Coast, a peninsula a short 40 minute ferry ride from North Vancouver, BC. We were drawn to the pristine beauty of Pender Harbour, often named “The Venice of the North”.

With its captivating waterways, incredible hiking, swimming, etc., it is a playground for the outdoor enthusiast. When we stumbled across the uniquely constructed geodesic home on the harbour, the seeds were planted to fulfill our dream of building our business.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy our beautiful rural setting with the blue waters of the harbour, the towering cedar trees, natural stream and pond, resident deer, eagles soaring overhead, and the serenity. The sunsets on the harbour delight us as no two sunsets are the same.

We love to share to share our little piece of paradise with our guests from near and far. We appreciate meeting new people and delight in creating wonderful new friendships.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Enchanter Oceanview Suites. The location is perfect. It's quiet, there's a beautiful view and the suites are cozy, modern and spotless! The hosts were very friendly and helpful and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. If we had to complain it would be that our trip was far too short. Another week would still have left us longing to stay! Would highly recommend the Enchanter Suites to anyone who likes to explore and then come home to relax and stare off at the view. Thank you Michel and Helen. We'll be back!

Wonderful - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the King suite for four days and had an amazing time. The suite was beautiful and had all the amenities we needed and more. We really enjoyed spending time reading on the porch while watching the boats in the harbour. So relaxing and peaceful! And the king sized bed - so comfortable. Helen and Michel were wonderful hosts, providing us with great information and going out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Great place. We were very happy we chose to stay there.
