Pender Island, BC, Canada

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.

We're also only 6 minutes away from a beautiful 4 Star Resort that offers a health/beauty spa, steam cave, fitness centre, swimming pool, fine-dining restaurant, pub and a great marina where you can wander around looking at some of the fabulous boats visiting our Island. The main shopping centre 'The Driftwood' is only 15 minutes away and there is also a great little store at Medicine Beach which is even closer. There are 2 beaches within walking distance. One is just past the end of the driveway and the other is about a 10 minute walk away. If you like to hike there are many super trails on Pender that will lead you to some incredible view points. At the end of the day you can wander down to the beach and sit-back and relax while you look out over the ocean views towards Mount Baker.

                                                                Hi Megan and family,

                                                                Thank you for forwarding a review of our cottage. Much appreciated : )

                                                                It was a pleasure meeting you all and we're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

                                                                Thanks again for choosing to stay in our cottage, you are always welcome here.

                                                                Peter and Linda

                                                                Peaceful & Perfectly Kept

                                                                Elissa E.

                                                                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

                                                                Paula G.

                                                                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!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Hi Paula and Brooks,

                                                                Thank you for finding the time to review our cottage.

                                                                So nice to know that you enjoyed your stay.

                                                                Sounds like you did a lot of exploring and also managed to find the time to pamper yourselves at the spa. Good for you!

                                                                We hope to see you over here again sometime, you will always be welcome : )

                                                                Peter and Linda

                                                                Great visit

                                                                William M.

                                                                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.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Hi Bill & Pat: Thanks so much for taking the time to review our property. We are very happy that you had great vacation. Like you said the disc golf is a lot of fun and it was the perfect weather for it. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and we hope to get to see you over here again sometime - you are always welcome. Enjoy the rest of this beautiful summer. Peter & Linda

                                                                Great vacation

                                                                Anna K.

                                                                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!
