Overview

Cortes Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

New 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom, cottage on the edge of the town of Lund.

Our magical Lund cottage on 3 acres of waterfront property is just 2 km across the water from SAVARY ISLAND, 2 km south of the COPELAND ISLANDS, 8 km from DESOLATION SOUND, and only a short walk from the Lund Harbour Marina and NANCY'S BAKERY.

RENT BOTH FLOORS OR ONLY THE UPPER FLOOR:

The rates are for the use of both floors, though if you have a smaller group (5 or less) and don't wish to rent the full place, we also have pricing for the rental of only the upper floor (please enquire, since this website's format doesn't have a way for us to post those rates).

Access Savary Island's sandy beaches easily, while enjoying cottage conveniences and features not found on the island. We even have made arrangements with Terracentric Coastal Adventures, so that you can conveniently hire them to take your family by water directly from our bay to a Savary Island beach for a worry-free day trip... no lugging your beach stuff up and over Savary by foot while trying to keep your kids happy along the way ;) Or rent kayaks from Terracentric, or even have them take you on one of their boat tours of Desolation Sound.

Private beach, yard, and bay (3 acre property)

Stunning west-facing views

Every window frames a view of nature

Sleeps up to 10 comfortably : each room is very unique

Spacious kitchen and huge decks

About Paul Shore

We are a family of four (our infant son didn't come on the kayak trip that this photo was taken on) who love the outdoors and the peace the ocean brings.

Paul Shore purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Paul Shore chose Cortes Island

We vacationed in the area for years and always dreamed to build once in our lives. We found this unique property back in 2005 that brought us calmness when we stood at its shore. Its proximity to Savary Island, Desolation Sound, and the amenities of the town of Lund finalized our decision to purchase it. Now our dream cottage is ready to share!

What makes this cottage unique

As our architect Sue said recently...

'The house was designed around the idea of creating open spaces with an abundance of natural light, views, real materials contrasting and working together, shadows, strong viewpoints and transparency throughout. So as the light, sea and skies change throughout the seasons, you'll see the house change too....through shadows and reflections. It's a bit like living in a poem, I imagine. This is when architecture is most powerful...when it elevates our experience of nature and thus of being alive.'

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our three-day stay at this fabulous location could only be rated perfect. I thought we had a well-equipped, perfectly designed kitchen in our home, but the kitchen at Shores is a prize-winner beyond expectation. The entire home is perfect in every detail....truly a joy to experience. We have told our family and friends this is a MUST to plan a stay and enjoy the property and Lund area. Thankyou for affording us this special opportunity.

Shores at Lund...The Heart of the Earth

  • 5 of 5

Shores at Lund exceeds the 5 star rating. My boys and I have been traveling to Lund and Desolation Sound for years, this year the boys wanted to share this beautiful private place with their childhood friends. Located perfectly in the heart of the earth...we were delighted when we found this extraordinary home over looking it's own bay with world class views! We were 12 adventure travellers and 3 well trained dogs (they traveled in kayaks with us too :) )and we all fit with comfort in the house. The private beach is perfect - made for a great launching off point for our kayaks. We were super fortunate to paddle with the Orca family and their baby...what a treat. The house is incredible, tons of space, lovely wood finish and everything is new and clean! The Shores made the trip super easy, so that we never had to worry about a thing with the property. We'll keep coming back again and again! Fantastic experience had by us all!! jan

Perfect for the Whole Family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at his stunning house over March break. One of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. The house is magnificent, amazing views of the ocean from huge windows in every room, private beach, fun areas for kids to play inside and out, wildlife to lookout for including sea otters. Really easy access for our elderly grandparents, spacious, clean and everything you could need for your stay in any season of the year. Easy stroll around the headland, or by road to Lund village for fresh baked goods, or dinner. A short drive to Powell River too. Very helpful owners, able to answers questions quickly. We will definitely be back!

It truly is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to thank you both for all the back and forth leading up to and for a terrific stay at your place. Everything ran very smoothly for our entire trip. We had a great time exploring the beach, Lund and Savary Island, and created some great bonding moments with our little ones away from the usual routines at home. Your property and house are beautiful and comfortable - we had the most amazing full moon view (in addition to the rest of the sunset views) one of the evenings, which will be memorable and even managed to spot a few starfish. I’m sure we’ll be back and hope to return to Lund and your place - and will be letting our friends know as well. It truly is a gem, not too far but far enough to feel like you’re away from it all.

Slice of heaven on the Sunshine Coast

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a no-comfort-spared north Sunshine Coast getaway, The Shores of Lund is an excellent place to go. The house is modern and beautiful. The view is spectacular - Those sunsets! While only a short 10-15 min walk to the cute Lund harbour, the property is incredibly quiet and secluded on a very private little bay. The house comes with 2 single sea kayaks and we rented more from a convenient, super-friendly outfitter (TerraCentric) in town. We were blessed with blue skies and hot temperatures during our week. Launching directly from the property we toured the nearby Copeland Islands and took 2 trips over to Savary Island (1 day just wasn't enough). Confident paddlers could get there in less than an hour. With some jr. paddlers (10 yrs) in our group, we made South Beach in about 2 hours (followed the entire way by a curious harbour seal)....or heck, just take the hourly ferry. BTW everything you hear about the spectacular beauty of beaches on Savary?...all true. If you have the option of staying on Savary, Quadra or Cortes, consider the conveniences of being on the mainland - immediate access to nearby restaurants and hikes, and only a 1/2 hr drive to Powell River for groceries, wine and beer, inflatable rubber rafts, and more restaurants. We would love to stay again and take some time to explore Desolation Sound and the islands to the north....and go back to Savary, of course.

A perfect location for a 3 generation family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a fantastic vacation at this property close to Lund. The living area is very spacious, with plenty of glass so that the view to Savary and Hornby Islands can be enjoyed at all times. It was very warm during our visit, but the house was always cool to return to. We found the furnishings of high standard and the kitchen was well equipped with china, cutlery and saucepans of very high quality. The master bath could fit two and it was fun to soak while enjoying the view through the 'open wall' into the bedroom and beyond. We had our own boat, plus a Boston Whaler, but there were two kayaks at our disposal which we also made use of, and our prawn traps were very successful. We picked oysters from the beach, and it was just a short stroll into Lund for baked goods from Nancy's bakery. The visit to the Farmers Market in Powell River was very productive, and we enjoyed dinner at the Laughing Oyster. Grandad, at 81, picked enough blackberries to make jam, and we all enjoyed sitting on the very spacious deck playing cards late into the evening.

Paul was extremely helpful, with immediate replies to all our queries, and we found his instructions easy to follow.

We are hoping to return next year.
