About the property

Near new, 1200 sq ft, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Ocean Views and family friendly.

Our 1,200 sq ft cottage on South Pender Island is located on one of the quietest and prettiest streets on the Island.

It has pleasant ocean and island views, expansive decks and is located in a very quiet and private setting.

There are 3 beaches close by, the nearest being just past the end of the driveway.

With accommodation for a maximum of 6 people, there are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one is a Queen master bedroom with it's own private deck and ocean views and the other has 2 twin beds. The upstairs also has a 2 piece bathroom.

Downstairs has a Queen bedroom, living room with cozy propane fireplace, kitchen and dining area, 4 piece bathroom and full laundry facilities.

In the early morning you may be lucky enough to see the Bald Eagles flying over the water looking for their first meal of the day.

On clear nights the sky is alive with stars and satellites and the only sound you may hear is the seals slapping their tails in the ocean as they go about fishing for a late night snack.

Pender Island has been part of our family's lives for over 35 years and we now consider it to be our home.

Our Island is a magical place and we are privileged to be a part of it.

We welcome you to our cottage and we're sure you'll feel the same way after visiting our beautiful Island.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful and relaxing place, great for families, spotless clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed just sitting on the deck and watching the birds while kids were playing in the yard. The island has much to offer, and 5 days was not enough to explore it all, so we'll be back again.

Thank you Peter and Linda for this experience!

Private getaway

  • 5 of 5

A little tricky to get to, with a ferry commute, but totally worth it! We came on a family vacation and it was just as lovely as the pictures depict.

Peaceful & Perfectly Kept

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The owners were so welcoming and helpful, keeping in touch if we had any questions. The home was kept emasculate, offering everything you needed from cooking supplies to outdoor activities. It had a cozy cabin feel and the view from the top bedroom patio was beautiful. It was walking distance to the beach so we made sure to do some exploring.

Thank you for the wonderful stay. We will be back

Lovely cottage with view near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We've been to several Gulf Islands over the years and this cottage ranks as one of the nicest places we've stayed -- it's immaculate, has a gorgeous view and is a short walk to a quiet beach. The location is private and peaceful which is perfect for relaxing on the deck and enjoying the view over the treetops. The owners were welcoming and friendly and provided bikes for touring the area. The cottage is a short drive from the Poet's Cove Resort spa where we spent an afternoon getting a massage. We also enjoyed the local farmer's market, the bakery for chai lattes and exploring the various beach access trails on Pender. The only thing that would make this cottage over-the-top amazing would be a hot tub :) We recommend this place wholeheartedly!

Great visit

  • 5 of 5

It would be hard to find hosts who are as accommodating and responsive as Peter and Linda. They are genuinely nice people who make an extra effort to ensure guests needs are looked after. I wanted to pick blackberries from the large patch by the driveway and Peter supplied more than everything required. He also introduced our family to disc golf by voluntarily lending us discs to play the premier course on North Pender, and he gave good advice about secluded beaches. Linda was quick to remedy a problem when some family members were sensitive to the laundry soap. Although they live next door on the other side of the fence, you'll never know they are there unless you need something.

The cottage is as advertised. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. We had a great visit and would recommend the cottage to anyone who is ambulatory and needing a quiet, clean place to stay. The driveway is steep, and there are some stairs to climb from the parking area, but the hillside location provides good views and should be manageable for anyone not using a wheelchair or walker.
