Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

Our ocean front vacation home was a boathouse that has been converted to a two bedroom cottage. The interior of the cottage has been recently renovated and includes the following:

• a fully equipped kitchen

• two large bedrooms with hardwood floors (one bedroom has a king size bed and a futon couch and the second bedroom has a queen size bed and a cuddle chair.

• two full bathrooms

• a large flat screen TV with DVD player

• WiFi

•. stacked washer & dryer

• wood burning stove

• comfortable furnishings

This is an exceptional ocean front property with over 300 feet of low bank level waterfront located in a very private setting on two-third acre. The converted boathouse is only 20 feet from the water and the large lot is flat so there are no hills to climb. The property features a deep water dock with access to fresh water and power and can accommodate up to a 40 foot boat. In addition, the property has a large glassed-in deck located over the water with gate access to launch kayaks or canoe. The owners have two kayaks for use by their guests. From the front of the living room, many hours could be spent watching boats and seaplanes arriving and leaving the harbour. At night, the place is serene and quiet. Many animals including deer, bears, eagles and sea otters have visited the property.

Some local attractions include hiking at Mount Daniel Park and Skookumchuk Narrows, ocean and lake swimming, boating, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, art galleries and Sunday Jazz at local pubs. Whether you are looking for an active or relaxing vacation, this is the place for you.

For your shopping needs, the village of Madeira Park is a 20 minutes drive from the cottage and it has a well stocked grocery store, pharmacy, credit union, a new spa, restaurants and pubs, liquor store, gift shops, etc.

Our cottage is a 40 minute scenic ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale and about an hour and 15 minutes drive up the Sunshine Coast Highway (Highway 101) to Garden Bay, Pender Harbour.

Exceptionaly well provisioned home!

  • 5 of 5

Weve been coming to the Pender area by boat for 15yr, since selling our boat last year we decided we didn't want to give up on spending some time in this area. Judy and Bruces home was absolutely perfect for us, with 2 small children the well equipped kitchen was a dream. Literally everything we have at our own home and more. The property itself was beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. From swimming and fishing off the deep water dock to morning coffee in the Adirondack chairs this property exceeded our expectations and we look forward to spending time at the Baums home next Summer!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our September 4 day stay at The Boathouse was absolutely amazing. The setting on the inlet was ideal and tranquil. With our 7 month old Grandson staying we spent a lot of time just hanging out and enjoying all the property had to offer. Loved spending time around the pond and enjoying all our meals at the over sized patio table. The Boathouse supplied kayaks were well used for a better view of the inlet. We found the inside also to be very well stocked, the rooms large and easily accommodating 4 adults and our grandson. The view from the large windows in the living room of the water , boats and docks with greenery everywhere was truly wonderful and we felt lucky to share this piece a paradise for even a few days

Beautiful property set in a boater'a paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - we had such a great time at The Boathouse. The property is so beautiful and the location couldn't be better. We brought our boat and enjoyed the convenience of the 1 minute boat ride over to John Henry's for groceries and meals. The boating in the area is just incredible. Judy and Bruce have done a great job on the house and are fantastic owners to deal with. We're coming back next summer!

Excellent stay at the boathouse!

  • 5 of 5

Over the course of 4 days our stay at the boathouse was incredible. From the fully provisioned house to the well manicured yard everything went very smooth and comfortable. With its large dock we were able to invite our friends over with their sailboat and leave for adventures on the ocean and return to create some extraordinary meals and enjoy the evening on the deck. The bedrooms were comfortable and the many places to sit and relax were a real treat.
