About Paul Shore

We are a family who love the outdoors and the peace the ocean brings.

Paul Shore purchased this house in 2011

Why Paul Shore chose Lund

We vacationed in the area for years and always dreamed to build once in our lives. We found this unique property back in 2005 that brought us calmness when we stood at its shore. Its proximity to Savary Island, Desolation Sound, and the amenities of the town of Lund finalized our decision to purchase it. Now our dream home is ready to share!

What makes this house unique

As our architect Sue said...

'The house was designed around the idea of creating open spaces with an abundance of natural light, views, real materials contrasting and working together, shadows, strong viewpoints and transparency throughout. So as the light, sea and skies change throughout the seasons, you'll see the house change too....through shadows and reflections. It's a bit like living in a poem, I imagine. This is when architecture is most powerful...when it elevates our experience of nature and thus of being alive.'

Breathtakingly serene

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazingly beautiful. It's relatively secluded on it's own little bay! The home is beautiful and well equipped with all that you might need. Access to the water is easy for adults (kids just need a hand to hold onto), and exploring the beach is wonderful.

We had a group of 7 (3 couples and a single). The single had to share a room with one of the couples; otherwise there are many beds to choose from! The downstairs twin bed area would be a lot of fun for several kids! The master suite is fabulous with a soaker tub looking out to the water. The design of the house was great for active people, such as ourselves. The deck leading to the stairs/water was a great place to store kayak gear! They have thought of great details like an outdoor shower on that deck with LOTS of hooks to hang wet gear! BRILLIANT! And you enter into a mudroom with washer/dryer...which comes in handy!!! While the top deck remained our lounge and entertaining area. The hammocks were lovely and so were the deck chairs! Both of which were used after long days of hiking or paddling.

The kitchen is well stocked with all we needed to cook for 7 people. Make sure you bring enough paper products to cover what you use though (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.). We spent a good portion of the evenings on the main deck watching the beautiful's a gorgeous view and setting.

The beds are comfortable, the showers are great (bring toiletry supplies) - we never ran out of hot water with 7 of us, and there is ample room for individuals to find secluded spots in and around the house to "get away."

Having use of their 3 kayaks was great! We brought up 2 of ours and had a flotilla! Getting our kayaks down to the water was a bit of a challenge, but very manageable. They also had an area with a hose to wash off gear.

The house is walking distance to Lund, and close enough to Powell River that it was an easy run for groceries/wine. Some of us took the ferry over to Savary Island and met the others who kayaked was an enjoyable day.

Paul was extremely helpful and answered many of our questions ahead of time - and he was very prompt. He chatted with us on possible trips to take and sent us many useful websites. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home!

Memorable in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

When our party of 6 adults walked through the front door of our Lund house for the first time, we were awestruck! It was as if the house was built in the treetops perched on the ocean shore! And it was even more amazing as we took in the workmanship of the home. The Shores beautiful home is everything a person could ask for in a vacation getaway! Whether enjoying sunsets from the spacious deck or at the picnic table tucked in the woods, kayaking in the afternoon sunshine from our own beach and discovering basking seals and sea lions on the cliff's rocky edge, cooking meals in the gracious and well-appointed kitchen, taking morning walks into Lund for lattes and yummy pastries at Nancy's Bakery, excursions to Savary Island or into Desolation Sound, or just hanging out with good company at the Shore's lovely home, our vacation was a truly delightful and memorable experience. The Shores were helpful and responsive. When we were short one adult life jacket, they immediately provided a contact for getting one. We would stay at Shores by Lund in a heartbeat and would highly recommend this property. Thank you, Shore family, for sharing your home with us.

***** Awesome *****

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip! House was very comfortable and nice. Views were spectacular. Ocean breeze and sounds were amazing. LOVED the outdoor shower, and used everyday. Paul (owner) is very pleasant, helpful and responsive. Private beach/bay is wonderful with oysters, mussels, starfish, crabs, jelly fish, and more. Kayaking was epic. Savory Island was MAGICAL! Christine at Terracentric in Lund was very helpful with arranging guided tours. Nancy's Bakery, Boardwalk Restaurant and Laughing Oyster Restaurant were all good, but not great. With a hot tub, this place would be perfect. Nevertheless, we would HIGHLY recommend a stay here.

Lund magical getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a serene private getaway, this beautiful modern oceanfront home is the jewel you've been looking for. Strategically set amongst the forest, incorporating ocean views from every room in the house, its three massive decks set a wonderful stage for reading, bird, seal, and bear watching, dinners, and yoga stretching. The kayaks provided make for a wonderful easy paddle across to Savary island which holds its own magic to explore. We hope to return with our friends and kids to explore more of this tranquil place. The home is perfect for family getaways and reunions. The Shores were fantastic with quick email responses to any questions we had. They have created a home that is the perfect model of feng shui of modern living.

Great accommodation in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to bring our friends from the UK with their 3 young children. There was plenty of space for all 4 kids and 4 adults. The views from the decks were amazing. The hammocks on the lower deck were very popular. We spent plenty of time on the water using the kayaks. Christine at Terracentric in Lund was very helpful with arranging a guided paddle and a zodiac trip into Desolation Sound. The owners were very helpful and we would highly recommend a stay here.

Palatial wood cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were imagining a little cottage in the forest. We found ourselves in an exquisite home, fully equipped with every convenience and enviable luxury, with our own beach. There are three kayaks for exploring the islands nearby. We took a few hours hike through glorious forest to arrive at an almost endless freshwater lake. We enjoyed sightings of fantastic birdlife and marine and land mammals. Christine in the village 10 minute walk away took us on an all-day tour by zodiac into the vast expanse of Desolation Sound, where we enjoyed a yummy picnic lunch on a beautiful beach in the middle of a turquoise ocean paradise.

We had no car and this presented no problem — took a taxi from the town of Powell River, and the people at the fantastic restaurant Laughing Oyster picked us up and dropped us off, and we enjoyed the tiny village atmosphere of Lund. Mostly, however, we didn't want to go anywhere, because of the beauty of the house itself, crafted with understated elegance and romantic ambience, boasting decks with sea views, outdoor shower, facilities for water activities, and the highest quality kitchen equipment and crockery. Ideal for a honeymoon couple or a large family. We were two people on honeymoon, and didn't feel like we were in the large house that it is, because the downstairs rooms are self-contained, but those additional rooms are valuable if many beds needed.

The Shores' house is a home that one would feel comfortable living in permanently, and well worth making it the primary destination even if you're travelling right across the world to get to it, as we did.
