Overview

Pender Island House Rental Photos and Description

A spectacular oceanfront vacation home located in the Southern Gulf Islands. Situated high on a southwest facing bluff with panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding islands. The perfect retreat for visitors seeking the warmth and peacefulness of beautiful Pender Island. Suitable for small groups, families or a romantic weekend getaway for two.

Nestled in a forest of majestic cedars, this beautiful location is abundant with wildlife -- deer, bald eagles, herons, sea lions, otter, orca whales and seabirds. The waters are perfect for canoeing or kayaking and you will watch passing boats and marine life from the deck. The Orca whales are a common sight to see passing right in front of the house.

Architecturally designed 2400 square foot home was built to maximize the breathtaking views from all the major rooms and features a huge ocean side sundeck that runs the length of the upper level of the house. With a south western exposure, the deck is a great place for soaking up the sun and dining outdoors. There is also a sundeck off the lower level bedroom where you can relax with your morning coffee.

The house features a spacious sun-filled open plan living room, dining room and kitchen area and is equipped with comfortable furniture in the living room along with a TV, stereo, CD player and DVD player and a dining table that seats up to eight. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, and for your convenience, a washer and dryer. High speed wireless internet is available. In the lower level games room there is a pool table and dart board as well as a TV and DVD player. Enjoy this home's unique, west coast style featuring wood beamed ceilings and dramatic floor to ceiling rock faced wood burning fireplace. In the winter months, a cozy fire and a good book will provide welcome relaxation while you watch the ever changing maritime scenery.

There are four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Comfortably accommodating eight people with one queen bed, two double beds and two twin beds. All beds have duvets, towels and linens are provided.

Even the cook won't object to preparing meals as the view from the kitchen is superb. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you would need - refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, hand mixer, electric can opener, toaster and plates and cutlery to serve eight. There is a gas barbeque on the deck and patio table, chairs and loungers.

Pender Island offers something for everyone, so whatever your pleasure, you will find it all staying at this house where you will take home fond memories that will last for a lifetime.

Weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is breath taking. I have never experienced such a beautiful scenery in BC and I have lived here all my life. The host was fantastic and gave us great information about the sites to see on Pender. It was clean, comfortable and came with everything you'd need for a week away. I would go back in a heart beat!

Really great!

  • 5 of 5

Really, really beautiful! We had everything we needed. We rented the place for a family thanksgiving, and for the five of us we had more than enough space. The kitchen was large and fully stocked, allowing us to comfortably cook our Turkey dinner. Beds were comfortable, views were grand, and we all felt perfectly at home! And we imagine the huge deck would be fantastic in the summer. We are already planning our return!

Fantastic 60th Birthday get-away!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our one week stay at this lovely oceanfront vacation home. I want to turn around and go back to enjoy one more sunset followed by a soak in the fantastic tub with the full ocean view. This home has everything you could ever need to stay awhile and so much room for everyone. There were 4 of us on this get-away ... each of us had our own room ( 2 with picture perfect views) and 2 extra large bathrooms. Most of us found the beds comfortable. The livingroom/diningroom can easily accomodate a good size group without any problems. There is a deck that runs the whole length of the house and has a table and chairs for outside dining plus 4 lounge chairs to sit and soak up some rays. Loved the deck! The home was clean and had lots of available linen, laundry soap, etc. so there was little need to buy anything extra other than bottled water. We used the kitchen on a regular basis and after a little hunt and find we were able to find most everything we needed. The owner readily responded to any inquiries and I felt comfortable dealing with her. Pender Island is very laid back so if you want a place to sit back and relax this is the island for you! We found a number of trails/beaches that were perfect for getting out and about to see the local sights and wildlife. Down at Thieves Bay some of our group saw a small pod of Orcas just 15 feet off shore. We also spotted a humpback whale , porpoises, seals, and daily deer sightings (even under the deck).The one and only shopping "mall" had all the basics , including a grocery store/liquor store/post office/bakery/book store/gift shop/gas station, and pharmacy. There is a small farmer's market on saturday mornings - fun to pick up some local art or fresh vegies. We even visited a local winery and tasted two lovely white wines produced on the island. Lunch/brunch on sunday was at the Cafe at Hope Bay ... a gorgeous location for a nice little restaurant ,with a lot of local color and good food. What more can I say.... we will definately be back.

Pretty Views

  • 4 of 5

The ocean view was quite spectacular, and we were lucky to see orcas on three separate occasions, as well as deer, hawks & seals--we even saw two young bucks engaging in playful combat with their antlers! The house was very clean & comfortable; our only complaint being that it should have been fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels & garbage bags, as these ran out quickly, and we were forced to purchase more. The Island itself was not my favourite of the Gulf Islands; the beaches were not suitable for lounging & swimming, the service pretty much everywhere we went was EXTREMELY slow to the point of almost "twilight zone, is this really happening" levels, & was also frequently rude, although the Hope Bay Cafe had lovely food and friendly servers. This might not be the best place for families with very small children (under 5) as the terrain surrounding the house is rugged & situated on a cliff side, so children are very much relegated to the indoors, which can obviously be challenging--very good thing there is a games room--especially since we had rain on three separate days. There is a lake nearby, although we did not end up going there as the weather was fickle. If you are looking purely to stay in and enjoy the views & solitude, this place is great; but, if you're looking for an abundance of island activity options, or to enjoy long days at the beach or exploring, one of the other Islands, such as Gabriola or Galiano, might be a better option. I recommend bringing bikes along as we thought it would probably be the best way to explore & get exercise.

Spectacular Views, Lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house was exactly as promised...

We were a family of six and had guests over for meals and there was lots of room for everybody.

We would highly recommend this spot.

We even saw a pod of Orcas go by right below the balcony.
