About Lorraine Lawrence

After emigrating from the Uk and living on the sunshine coast for just a few months we were introduced to Shores cottage by a realtor friend and fell in love with it and the charm that it possesses Over the last few years we have completely renovated the cottage to make it feel cozy and welcoming. Even though we only live 40 minutes away we feel totally refreshed and relaxed once we reach the area of pender harbour, unpack and relax is our motto and we hope that like our many annual returning guests that you will also enjoy the tranquility and enviromnent of our wonderful home

Lorraine Lawrence purchased this Cottage in 2006

Why Lorraine Lawrence chose Madeira Park

We chose to purchase this home for the peace and tranquility of the location, we prefer to holiday away from the crowds, Madeira park is great for couples and families and offers a more private getaway from busy daytripper beaches and lack of privacy

What makes this Cottage unique

Wildlife at its best, we have deer roaming the yard , eagles that sit atop the trees opposite the cottage each day, otters on the dock at night eating their catch. Also a perfect fishing bay with plenty of crab and fresh prawns whether caught by yourself or purchased straight from the boats in the harbour

Quiet setting away from hussle bussle of busy beaches Deer roam the garden, eagles are also nesting in tree opposite and are often seen swooping down outside cottage South facing with full sun all day just to sit and watch the boats go by, 2 goldfish ponds bbq area. If you want peace and quiet this is it, great for couples and families Just bring your beach towels everything else you require is provided, home is fully equipped so that it is fully comfortable and feels like 'home from home' Lots of trails and walks nearby, sit and enjoy the view, great seafood available from the Marina nearby, also Painted boat resort with spa and swimming facilities within 5 minute walk Great fishing area Just enjoy and relax

                                                                  Beautiful cottage with lovely views

                                                                  joel m.

                                                                  We have spent many breaks on the sunshine coast and have stayed in the majority of rentals here, we had seen this cottage but had never booked before, what a mistake we made

                                                                  IT IS BEAUTIFUL , What we loved is that it is south facing, lovely warm sun all day with the option of moving outside chairs into shade if and when required

                                                                  Also unlike other rentals this one had different seating areas , we could have a coffee at a smaller table on deck over looking ocean, or dinners at an undercover table & chairs if weather was wet, or sunny table & chairs on deck if dry , the different options allowed everyone to be happy

                                                                  Lots of kitchen flatware, plates. cups etc so you dont need to wash up all day, plenty of towels etc This is a home that is used by the owners and it shows because they have catered for most needs

                                                                  There is even a whole bookcase if you want to read the latest romance, As you can tell we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and have already booked a longer stay

                                                                  Fantastic views from the deck

                                                                  Danguole C.Vancouver, BC

                                                                  A family of four (with 1and 3 year old kids) really enjoyed the place.

                                                                  Family friendly house. A beach is just 2min away and a large deck for kids to play and for adults to sit and enjoy beautiful evenings.

                                                                  It was the Easter weekend and kids enjoyed the egg hunt, playing soccer and throwing stones into the water at the nearby beach.

                                                                  The house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

                                                                  Deck provided amazing views of ocean and boats to watch going by

                                                                  The most delightful fire for winter nights kept us really cozy, we wanted a nice quiet romantic break and we sure had that, we were teenagers again

                                                                  Loved it, will definately be back

                                                                  Beautiful scenery quiet escape

                                                                  Lorraine L.-

                                                                  Loved this cottage it has everything you could need. Situated in a no through road with beach opposite and small quaint dock at end of street it's truly stunning with lots of wildlife. Many walks hikes and trails nearby. Will definately be back

                                                                  A Deck with a View

                                                                  Jeff and NadineNorth Shore

                                                                  The view from the deck of the cottage is beautiful. We often sat on the deck and watched the boats, currents and observed the tides. We used this a guide before we went kayaking. The kayaking around this area is amazing. Steve and Lorraine provided us with excellent information about "canoe pass" which led into a larger bay and public marina. You can launch a lighter kayak from the rocky beach that is accessed through a public stairway across the street from the cottage. The cottage itself is well appointed and came with all of the essentials to make our stay comfortable. The living room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the full kitchen and laundry facilities. We highly recommend this property for families or couples that are looking for a quiet get away. The dead end street makes it very attractive as the only people who are frequenting this area are owners themselves. We often walked the area and even ventured as far as the IGA for groceries and lunch at Budabing burgers. All and all, it was a great week away! Thanks for sharing your cottage with us Lorraine and Steve.

                                                                  Sacha v.

                                                                  We had a lovely stay and really loved the cottage and location. It had everything we were looking for and was ideal for boating/fishing etc..The cottage itself is very well located and very cosy, we really appreciated it. Medeira park is a quaint little community and we will continue to come back to this area. The only downside was that we were a bit disappointed with the beach across from the cabin as it is quite rocky and not super child friendly for little ones. Other than that, we would gladly recommend The Shores cottage!
