LUXURIOUS OCEANFRONT COTTAGE, PENDER ISLAND, PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Pender Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This cottage is in the prime area of a small brand-new resort consisting of 30 cottages. Spectacular arbutus trees can be seen around the cottage and at certain times of year the whales can be seen passing by.

Eagles, seals, otters, and deer are abundant. The resort has a marina, two pools (one for adults only) a bistro, a kids playground, and a large grassy area. The resort is well-managed with staff always on sight to assist you and provide information.

There is a golf course within walking distance, and several first-class restaurants. At the Driftwood Centre, the main shopping area for Pender Island residents, there is an excellent bookstore, as well as several other shops selling art, crafts, clothing, etc. There is also an excellent modern supermarket with a selection as good as any high-end urban market.

A nicely appointed fitness centre is also available for drop-ins. Elsewhere on the island, there is a museum, many beautiful hiking trails, several lakes, beaches, and on South Pender, accessible over a one-lane bridge, there is a world-class spa where you can book massages, facials, and various body wraps, and enjoy their steam cave and geothermal hot tub.

The Island is a popular location for cyclists and there are few cars on the roads. There are a number of artist's studios that you can visit, and a Farmer's market every Saturday except in the winter. The Morning Bay Winery offers tours and tastings daily.

Pender is a special place in the winter too. The weather is generally very mild, as the area has a Mediterranean climate. The occasional storm is welcomed as the cottage is snug and cozy, encouraging you to curl up in front of the fire with a good book. If you are a diver, this cottage is very close to a world class diving area, and boats can be hired to take you out to a marine park with sunken ships.

The ferry is a 5 minute walk from the cottage, and you can take the ferry to Saltspring Island for the day, where there is more opportunities for shopping and exploring.

I am a psychologist, working for Vancouver Coastal Health, as well as in private practice. I have two adult daughters, three grandchildren, and two little dogs. I love to go to the cottage when life is getting stressful and relax and enjoy the peace and beauty of the island.

Melady Preece purchased this cottage in 2005

I have always loved the Gulf Islands and dreamed of having a place to escape from the city. I manage to go two or three times a year myself, and like being able to share the experience with others.

I feel my stress disappearing the minute I get into the lineup for the ferry. I love the feeling of walking in the door of the cottage and seeing the panoramic view of the ocean outside the windows. I love to sleep with the windows open and if I wake in the night, I fall back to sleep listening to the sound of the waves lapping against the rocks below my window.

A wonderful hideaway to be alone in. Beautiful scenery, wonderful view, beautiful arbutus trees. Watch the sun set, or see the moon cast light upon the white capped ocean on a windy night. Listen to the ocean as you fall asleep, and relax with your coffee on the deck in the morning as the fog lifts.

The island is full of friendly people, staff at the resort are very helpful. The cottage is conveniently located close to the ferry (great for those of us without vehicles!) and well equipped with everything you need. It's also a good size in case you have a full family.
If you like to hike, there are lots of great trails of varying levels of challenge throughout the island. Walk to the galleries and different ports with your camera! At the end of the day come back to what feels like home and make your favourite meal. After, enjoy a cup of tea while stargazing. Then turn in for the night and let the ocean hypnotize you into a deep, restful sleep.

Fall Getaway

We picked the perfect week to get our fall getaway at The Cottages on Pender Island. The weather was fantastic. We found the cottage to be clean and quite well maintained. The cottage was nice for two but we thought it would be cramped for 4 adults to stay comfortably for longer than a weekend. The views off the deck and from the Master Bedroom were great, watching ferries come and go and boats from the marina. We caught a glimpse of a seal or two and the resident deer were all around us. We were able to cook all our meals with the stocked kitchen. We love coming to Pender for true rest and relaxation. We love exploring the many different bays hoping for a glimpse of the Orcas, did not see any on this trip though. We will definately be back again.

Another great vacation on Pender

  • Submitted: Aug 25, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We had another great vacation on Pender Island last week...the weather cooperated and delivered continuous sunshine punctuated by a spectacular thunder & lightening show on Tuesday evening. The resident deer seems to have become more bold, not only sleeping under the cottages, but feeding along the road at the front of the cottages during the middle of the day. Whales, seals, otters and eagles entertained as always.

If possible, we’d like to get a jump on 2013 and book the same week for next year.
