  • Beautiful

    "Beautiful place for a weekend getaway. Treacherous driveway but it sounds like improvements are to be made soon! We will definitely be coming back. A word of advice - bring your own music player as there are no hook-ups for devices here. Also bring your bathing suits for the super close dock (it has a diving board!) 100% recommend this place for a couples getaway."

  • Terrific for families - highly recommended!!

    "We echo all of the other positive reviews on the site. The house is perfect for several families, with lots of different areas for gathering - the kids could watch TV/play games downstairs, while the adults socialized upstairs. (We had four adults and three kids, and never felt crowded.) The kitchen is very well set up. Everything was clean and well-organized but not fussy. It felt like staying at a friend's house (albeit a friend who owns a spectacular home on an amazing island.) The location also deserves a mention - we were able to walk to the disc golf course and several different viewpoints/beaches with ease. It was a short drive to the farmer's market / grocery store. Finally, Pam (the owner) was a terrific host, even though she is located in Ontario. She made sure that we had all our questions answered, and was always friendly and accommodating. Overall, a wonderful experience."

  • Amazing place for an easy-going family get-together

    "We just finished renting both the chalet & the cottage for a week in late September to hold a small wedding (17 people in attendance). We were able to have the ceremony on the property (in the garden near the cottage) and then enjoy a week relaxing with family and friends. It was absolutely perfect for our needs: spacious, affordable, very private, with incredible views (we saw orcas from the property 3 separate times in one week) and a very easy-going, reasonable, flexible owner. The cottage is newer and fancier than the chalet, but both buildings have great views and were built thoughtfully in tune with the surroundings. The cottage is great for writing, yoga, and feels very peaceful and luxurious. The chalet is great for large, easy-going groups who don't mind a "lived-in" feel; some bedrooms are fancier and have better views than others, but the house has so much space everyone was able to relax and fully enjoy. Our group loved the whole property - one family member already arranged to rent it again next summer! Big kitchen and tables for family meals and board games, several decks, a hot tub with amazing views, many nooks and crannies to escape to. Pender Island has a lot to offer - we spent hours at Brooks Point and could have spent more. The summer farmer's market on Saturday is popular. We went hiking, kayaking/stand-up paddle boarding, visited various beaches...but really most of our time was spent relaxing with family and friends in the chalet. It is not easy to find a property this big on the Gulf Islands for this price. I know because I looked very hard! Excited to go back next summer."

  • Awesome James Bay Rental

    "This property is in a great location to enjoy all that Victoria has to offer. Louise was great to deal with and the property is as advertised. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place in Victoria."
