Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Pendray House is a beautiful family vacation home located on the beachfront near Victoria BC. Enjoy amazing views across the ocean of the Saanich Inlet to the Malahat Mountain range on Vancouver Island. The waters are very peaceful on the inlet which makes the swimming fantastic in the summer, walks along the beach, hunting for Gooey Ducks at low water, rock pooling and all the joys of playing on the oceanfront.

Pendray House is located on a no-through road, there is very little traffic which sets the scene for the peace and quiet you can enjoy while on vacation. The house is two levels and was built in 1948, it has just undergone a complete renovation to bring up to the 21st Century, yet still retaining the traditional beach cottage feel. A path leads up to the front door which gives you first sight of the sea and the views you will enjoy during your stay. Walk through the entrance hall and into the open plan living area. This area covers the living room, dining room and the kitchen all with great views of the ocean. There is a feature fireplace made from river rock from the Fraser River, the original owners in 1948 hired their children to collect the stones and were given 1 cent per stone each. The living room features two sofas, the fireplace, a wide screen television and integrated HIFI system which has speakers in the living areas. The dining area has a large table next to the kitchen with spectacular views of the sea for you and your family can enjoy while sharing a meal. There is a large kitchen with all modern cooking amenities ready for those chefs among you. On the main floor there is three queen bedrooms, the master bedroom includes an ensuite while the other two bedrooms share a large bathroom featuring a claw foot tub and walk-in shower.

Take a walk downstairs to the lower level and you will find a movie room with a large screen TV for the kids with bean-bag chairs ready for them to lounge and enjoy a movie after a day on the beach. A full size bathroom with walk-in shower which includes a seat below the shower nozzle for guests staying downstairs. Two large bedrooms are located on the lower floor that feature two pairs of single bunk beds in each room suited perfectly for children and teens.

Both floors have access to the large terrace on the waterside of the house, which is a great place to relax. The terrace has dappled shade, if you want full sun, just go down to the lower deck on the beach. The house faces southwest, and gets beautiful sunsets and sunshine all day. There is direct access to the beach from the house and since there is no public access point close to this beach it provides a very private feel.

The house is located on west side of the Saanich Peninsula in the community of North Saanich. Located only 10 minutes drive from the B.C. Ferries docks to Vancouver and the Gulf Islands and the Victoria Airport. There is seaplane service to Vancouver about 5 minutes away at Patricia Bay. Downtown Victoria is a 30 minute drive away. Sidney by the Sea, which is the local shopping area, has many good restaurants, whale watching, and seaside attractions to experience. The world famous Butchart Gardens is only 15 minutes drive and the locally renowned Deep Cove Chalet Restaurant is only 5 minutes drive. There is a walk on ferry shuttle on the pier in Sidney which will take you to Sidney Island, part of the Gulf Islands National Park, which features large sandy beaches and great walks to view wildlife there. Saanich Peninsula has golf courses, sailing charters, horseback riding adventures, fishing charters, and local wineries to experience. There are many hiking trails in the region for walking and biking, so you will always find lots to do for those of you who wish to be active.

Please come and enjoy the Pendray House and make your next great family vacation here on the west coast of Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia a memorable one.

Please note that term rates apply for the summer peak season period only unle

Reviewer Comments:

Our 3 generations of family had such a wonderful stay at Pendray house. The home was clean and cozy and had everything that we needed for our 2 week vacation. We loved hearing about the history of the home and talking to the neighbours about the beautiful surrounding area. We beach combed, canoed (supplied our own), wandered the quite neighbourhood and basked in the magical view. It was wonderful to be able to bring our four legged family member along with us too. Although we come from different parts of the world we definitely hope to be back one day to add to the amazing memories made.

Reviewer Comments:

Our group consisted of 9 people, ages 5 to 70, for a family get together of 4 different households. I had never rented a vacation home before so it was a new experience. It was an easy process. The staff was very helpful. Our greeter was helpful in directing us to a place to eat & a grocery store that first night. We had an issue with the BBQ girl. It was quickly resolved. We enjoyed ourselves we decided we need to do family get together more regularly & would certainly prefer Pendray House if we return to the area and use EMR if looking elsewhere.

A lovely home for a family gathering weekend, with children and grandchildren. Kids in particular love Pendray for the tidal pools and the bunk bed rooms. We will continue to come back regularly.

Near-Perfect Property, Pestering Management

Reviewer Comments:

The property was absolutely gorgeous, well appointed, and spotless. It was a perfect rental for our group of three young families. We travel every year together, always booking through the two big vacation rental sites. HOWEVER. The rental company pestered us so often from booking through to access to the unit that we would NOT recommend booking this place. I have 42 emails in my exchange with this company. We had to provide our credit card number FOUR times AFTER booking through the rental site. We had to arrange to meet a greeter onsite on arrival, rather than use a code for the door, which they HAD but did not provide for us. Instead, we had ONE key to share amongst three families. All of the parties we encountered were very friendly, but it is completely unnecessary in 2018 to have to have this much interaction for a vacation rental. I've booked dozens of places on VRBO and Airbnb and the amount of interaction with this particular company was more than all the others COMBINED. They also used a combination of signed and scanned forms, website forms from multiple sites, which seemed very disorganized. I was a bit skeptical that the rental would actually work out, so I was pleased when our friends arrived and there was actually a greeter there. To summarize: gorgeous property that is horribly managed by seemingly nice people that have no clue how vacation rentals work in this decade. I'd be happy to book again if the owners decided to use the VRBO or Airbnb platform as they're meant to be used - it would be 100x simpler, easier, and likely less expensive for them.
