Overview

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!

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.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family was on Pended Island from May 5th to the 9th. We had a great opportunity to enjoy a beautiful nature and see a lot of deer on the island. You will be able to see the ocean and hear birds singing in the morning from the window in the bedroom. The house is super clean and has everything you need for staying there and feeling at home. If you like to ride a bike there are 2 bikes there. This is a good house for families with children. The owners of the house were really nice and helpful. We had a great time on the island.

Owner's Response: Hi Igor and family, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Great to hear that you used the bikes and got to see so much of the island. The hike up to Mount Norman is always fun, even if sometimes you have to carry the little ones on your shoulders, the view at the top makes it well worth the trek..... Congratulations for being in such good shape Igor! We really enjoyed meeting you all and please know that you are always welcome here. Sincerely, Peter and Linda

Peter and Linda were very welcoming and the cottage is in a great location to explore both South and North Pender Islands. The cottage has everything you could possibly needs to fit 6 people comfortably. Would recommend to anyone visiting Pender Island

wonderful relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Linda( hosts) couldn't have been more kind. The lay out of the place is great, wonderful views, all the amenities imaginable and they are a fountain of information when needed. We had a great time, relaxing and rejuvenating. Beds are soft, linens lovely, ample space to spread out and nice decks. We will return for sure.
