Overview

Garden Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Built on an acre of forest and exposed rock, this modern designed split level, open beam cedar home is ideally located a short forty minute scenic ferry ride from Vancouver and one hour drive up the spectacular Sunshine Coast highway to Garden Bay, Pender Harbour.

Called the Venice of the coast, the harbour, lakes and surrounding mountains, combine to create an eco-system renowned the world over. Add a list of activities, vacation amenities, gourmet dinning, local pubs, gift shops and stores, renting a vacation home just minutes from everything is the first step to a memorable family summer adventure or romantic get away.

My unique home has all you need to enjoy a comfortable, luxurious vacation stay and is a centrally located sanctuary in the heart of this beautiful West Coast jewel. Abundance of large lake and mountain facing windows, expansive wrap around deck with covered patio creates a live in or out lifestyle that brings you closer to nature. The Grand Room is dominated by a fourteen foot beamed ceiling, floor to ceiling stone fire place and big comfortable furniture. Nothing you need to make your stay outstanding is lacking. I welcome you to read more about this exceptional property and to come visit.

About Paul Nattall

Welcome to my vacation home in one of BC's most stunning lake and ocean settings - Garden Bay/Pender Harbour. Just two hours by ferry and scenic drive from Vancouver, my modern open beam cedar two level house is filled with my favorite toys and original artworks. It is just a very short walk down from the ridge to the clear pristine waters of Garden Bay Lake or five minutes to harbour's edge. Hike up Mt Daniel for a 180 degree view of the Georgia Strait. The golf course, horseback riding, ocean kayaking, fine restaurants and shopping are really only minutes away. It is a paradise - please come and stay awhile.

Paul Nattall purchased this house in 2001

Why Paul Nattall chose Garden Bay

I first discovered Pender Harbour sailing the coastal waters. My son moved his family to the area in the early 70's and settled on 4 acres of land in Garden Bay. Many holiday visits convinced me this was nirvana and the place to live out my life. It has not disappointed. Now I would like to share my home and this beautiful place, while I continue to explore the coast on my sailboat.

What makes this house unique

My uniquely designed open beam cedar home sits on an acre surrounded by old growth fir trees providing a feeling of serenity and remoteness, but only minutes from all the vacation amenities. Situated on a ridge overlooking Garden Bay Lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the opportunity to share in the experience of the Sunshine Coast while at your home. One of the most memorible experiences was the ability to view the stars from your deck in the evening, and of course the morning greetings from your Son's dogs, Finnegan and Ziggy and meeting your Daughter inlaw Sandy.

Our visit was blessed with sharing all this with our family Rick, Cheryl and Shayla. I am sure they would agree. That is the true value, your home - the lake - Everything, surroundings; memories we will have always. Many thanks.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful vacation rental! The house is perfect for two couples, with each bedroom and bathroom separated by the kitchen and living area. Everything that we could have needed was provided, the house is spacious and impeccably clean and the beds very comfortable. The area is lovely and VERY quiet. Our one small disappointment was the view--the listing led us to believe the lakefront was visible and readily accessible, which was not the case. The view of the lake was considerably restricted; however we enjoyed ourselves immensely and would not hesitate recommending this property. Oh, and we thought the rate was very reasonable.

a place to go back again and again

  • 5 of 5
Excellent place to spend some quality time with family and friends. Great home in an awesome location and amazing owner, felt welcomed right away and that feeling stayed with us until we said goodbye. Loved the big dogs and giving them treats, Catherine lake was a nice surprise and the hike up Daniel Mountain so rewarding. We are already making plans to visit again, it was a breeze to get here and to enjoy few wonderful days. Thanks Paul.

Sunshine Coast Rental

We stayed in Garden Bay for a wedding and a short vacation. We were very pleased when we arrived and found the house was exactly as described. The house was clean and well organized. Although the television was missing from the master bedroom it was no big deal because we were not there to watch TV. Having the WIFI was a great help for sight seeing and restaurants. We actually had several people over for breakfast one morning and the kitchen had every thing we needed for eggs benedict with all the extras. The only other thing was no blinds or curtains on windows in the bedrooms, which meant when the sun comes up, lots of light after late nights. Over all we had a great time and will use VRBO for vacations in the future and the house in Garden Bay if and when we return to Canada.

Fantastic Home in Very Good Location

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully-constructed (with amazing 12-panel cedar roof), tastefully-decorated and well-stocked home! We totally enjoyed our 2-week stay. Truly enjoyed the state-of-the art kitchen, jacuzzi tub, hammock, comfortable beds and huge couches in the living room (simply great lounging there reading). The 2 single kayaks added to our enjoyment of Garden Bay Lake (~5-min walk to the lake carrying the kayaks).
