The kitchen is a chef’s dream and when you have the warmth of the wood burning stove and the spectacular views, this immaculate, open concept room is what vacations are all about.

Pender Island, off the west coast of Canada gives you a small taste of the Mediterranean, blended with a unique Canadian flavor. The Gulf Islands enjoy less than 30 inches of rain a year and are surrounded by sheltered waters, strong tides, and dramatic coastlines. Pender Island offers a unique blend of seclusion and activity in a breathtaking rural forest setting. Its population of just over 2000 enjoy the many scenic hikes and trails throughout the island and in the recently created Gulf Islands National Park. There is an excellent 9 hole golf course, tennis courts and 3 marinas on the island providing opportunities for sailing, fishing and buying fresh crab right off the dock! There are numerous ocean beach accesses, a freshwater 'Swimming Hole' (at Magic Lake) and the not-to-be-missed highlight of exploring the island by kayak. There is a well established theatre company, a Farmers Market, a Library and a warm and supportive community. Countless deer roam the woods, eagles soar above and Orcas (Killer Whales) can be viewed right from the deck of our house.

Victoria, the capital of B. C., is just a short ferry ride away and is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city with first rate restaurants, great entertainment and many sightseeing delights. Vancouver/Whistler was the venue for the 2010 Olympic Games and Vancouver is a less than a 2 hour ferry ride away. Skiing at Whistler is world-renowned. Alternately, regular seaplane flights can get you to Vancouver in 20 minutes.

Ron and Darold are Directors of one of Canada's most prestigious Performing Arts Colleges. In addition, to being fans of the arts we both are avid sailors having sailed Greece, Turkey, Australia and the British Virgin Isles as well as off the West Coast of Canada. We golf, swim and enjoy the hiking and beach-combing that our lovely Pender Island home gives us access to.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

We love sitting on our deck watching the daily parade of Whales that swim by every summer. Another favorite is to pick up fresh crab from Browning Harbor and having a feast!

A MAGICAL PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week with another couple, and the house was truly MAGICAL! Every evening we would sit in the hot tub overlooking the water - and then sit on the deck and watch for the Orcas. We finally saw them on our second to last day - and they were amazing.

The house has everything you need, including a dry sauna! We all loved the place so much we did not want to leave!! A very relaxing vacation with fabulous views! Pender Island also has lots of hiking trails and a frisbee golf course, great restaurants and a terrific Farmers Market!

RELAXING LONG WEEKEND WITH FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a fantastic long weekend at Whale Watch house, the highlight of which was watching at least 30+ whales go by on Easter Sunday - absolutely amazing!
The view from the deck and the hot tub is wonderful. Whale Watch house was the perfect venue for a relaxing weekend with friends and the games/party room was a lot of fun!

THE PERFECT VIEW

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful two week vacaton here and it was very relaxing! We did indeed see the whales and many seals and a bald eagle visited us regularly. The house is spacious and bright and the games room was fun too. But sitting in the hot tub with the bright moon shining and reflecting off the ocean was by far my favorite part! Thanks guys! :)

WOW - HOW FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
My Wife and I recently stayed at Whale Watch for an Easter Weekend Getaway. It was spectacular!

Whether it was the stunning views, wonderful open floor concept, comfortable furniture (including a fabulous chaise), well appointed kitchen, inviting hot tub, soothing sauna, wood burning fireplace (that really can warm the place up on a cold spring morning), or the family of 5 deer seen around the house daily – the experience was fantastic. This was one of oufavoritete places and we have been to a lot of Gulf Island locations. The house is great for a quite retreat for 1 or 2, or if you are more family oriented, the pool table and rec room in the basement would be a great base to plan your days excursions to the surrounding islands and then for unwinding at the end of the day in front of the huge flat screeTVtv.

Pender (North & South) is just the right mix of available amenities and quite forest walks. It is one of the quieter Gulf Islands and we love it for this reason. If you are on Pender, check out the Hope Bay Café. There BLT sandwich was one of the best we have ever had. The Saturday Farmers market is also legendary and a great place to pick up some afternoon coffee freshly baked treats.

WHALE WATCH IS WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
My stay at Whale Watch on Pender Island, BC was utter bliss. The house is gorgeous and so comfortable. Being able to dip into the hot tub for a soak as well as sit in the sun on the deck was wonderful relaxing therapy. Overlooking the ocean was such a treat. Highly recommended for a R&R getaway from big city stresses.
