Garden Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Located on one of the many secluded bays that make up Pender Harbour, this modern two bedroom cottage sits on a third of an acre with 200 feet of low bank waterfront. The setting, at the mouth of the intertidal zone, offers a constant view of deep water as well as the dramatic landscape and wildlife changes that come with daily tide swings. The property slopes gently down to the water which is always warm for swimming when the tide flows in over the rocks, hot from a day in the sun.
Inside the cottage, the open plan comprises a very well equipped kitchen (with sharp knives), two curtained bedrooms with queen beds and a bathroom with a rain shower and a river rock floor. In the living room, two sets of French doors open onto the wraparound deck...a good place to relax with a glass of wine as the sun slips behind the mountain at the end of the day.
Step outside for a choice of diversions. Take the kayak or the canoe to the quiet end of the bay and discover up close the rich diversity of life at the estuary shoreline. Grab your pole and fish off the rocks. Or, simply beachcomb for oyster shells that are abundant on the property.
Nearby, a ten minute drive takes you a world away to the shopping area of Madeira Park and an array of artisan studios and galleries. For something more active, try out some of the many mountain biking and hiking trails and be smitten with breathtaking views of the entire Harbour. Or, go deep in the ocean and find out why the area consistently ranks near the top for scuba divers.
As for more sedentary pleasures back at the cottage, there are a variety of hammocks and chaises for following the sun around the property and watching the magnificent bald eagles that make the Bay their home in the summer.
