As Conde Nast Traveller writes, "Western Canada is a natural paradise: mind-blowingly, breath-robbingly beautiful...The sheer profusion of fauna (the place is crawling, creeping, and swimming with wildlife), the off-the-grid unspoiled nature, and the muscular ruggedness of the landscape are overwhelming".
Watch the seaplanes land and sailboats pass by as you relax in your renovated oceanfront retreat. Gorgeous sunsets and sweeping views of Pender Harbour and the surrounding mountains are visible from nearly all rooms of this West Coast inspired contemporary cottage. Keep your eyes open for seasonal visits from bald eagles, hummingbirds, and yes even whales and dolphins which have been known to visit the harbour. Enjoy the regular appearances from seals, sea otters, deer, loons, and many other beautiful West Coast species.
Bring your boat or rent one and tie up to the large private dock with deep water moorage then head out and explore the many gorgeous nearby inlets. Perfect for entertaining, find all the amenities of home including a large, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor gas BBQ, gas fireplace, washer, dryer, central vacuum, and radiant floor heating in the bathroom.
Pender Harbour is a 2 hour trip from downtown Vancouver, including a scenic 45min ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. Sea planes offer another unique and scenic travel experience and land nearby in the Harbour. We are sure you will love your stay here as much as we do!
