Our family (2 adults, 2 little kids) stayed in the upper suite Easter weekend. We are quite picky when it comes to hotels and vacation rentals and I have to say this is one of the nicest places we've stayed at throughout all of our travels. It's hard to compare it to a hotel because the space is so much bigger, but it'd be on par with the Wickaninnish in Tofino.
The house was very clean and well appointed. The beds were firm and comfortable and the linens and towels were high quality. We mainly used the master bathroom and it was perfect. The soaker tub with faucet & hose attachment was comfortable and functional, and the shower gigantic and luxurious. The kitchen was well equipped and the open concept dining/living/kitchen design make it easy to cook while soaking in the picture perfect view and keeping an eye on the kiddies. The upper floor has two bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen) and two bathrooms. The bedroom with the twin beds is on the lower level, but not in the lower suite. If you have really little kids, there is one set of steps going down from the main floor that is open, but other than that, the house is very kid-friendly.
Unless you plan on boating from place to place, you definitely need a car and a map to get around. We spent our two days at Baker Beach and Francis Point Marine Park, both in nearby Madiera Park (10-15 min. drive), and at Hidden Grove in Sechelt (30 min drive). We went to an IGA grocery store in Madiera Park (10 min drive) and the Shoppers Drug Mart in Sechelt (25 min drive away) but didn't visit any restaurants.
We definitely recommend this house for anyone looking for a place to stay in Pender Harbour. The guest book in the house is filled with pages of glowing complements and words of thanks from all of the folks who have stayed here.

Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: When we first opened our home for rentals,our primary goal was to provide a getaway for guests to remember, to enjoy some R & R and hopefully a home they would want to return to. It is always a pleasure to read our guests reviews and to think that we have met their needs and we will strive to keep a high standard for future guests. Thanks Michelle for your kind review!
