Idyllic island retreat

  • 5 of 5
The relaxing and inspiring splendour of Kingfisher Cove cannot be adequately related in words...it needs to be experienced! The location is ideally situated midway between North and South Pender Islands at the end of a short road and next to a national park reserve...only minutes from groceries, restaurants, and shops, yet isolated from the hustle bustle of the world. Right from the initial entry down the driveway we were welcomed with cosy secludedness and charming garden decor. The cabin offers all the standard amenities one could desire in a home away from home, with the added benefit of a vaulted ceiling, breathtaking view from an expansive deck (great for yoga), and the mesmerizing and rustic glow of a wood stove. The glass-block walk-in shower is bright and invigorating complete with island views, and the bathtub on the deck calls out to spa lovers. Even in February we were able to bask on the upper deck, and lose ourselves admiring the ample sea life from the dock. For us, this was a winter retreat to be calm and take in the scenery; however, we could easily see that this location offers numerous opportunities for exploring nature and exercising. We look forward to our next visit when we can explore the hiking trails in the national park reserve and bring our kayaks to paddle about the calm waters of Bedwell Harbour and beyond. Highly recommended!

Fun getaway with the family - deers,crabs,prawns

We luckily managed to get a last minute offseason booking for kingfisher cove. We took the ferry over from Vancouver and located the property very easily. I took my trailered 12 tin boat along with me for the journey. The owner was at the cabin to greet us and gave us a quick orientation, before he left. The cabin was stocked with everything - bedding, cooking utensils, towels etc.. All you need is cloths and a camera. You can get food at the grocery store which had everything except wagon wheels. There was some firewood chopped for the wood shove and we had fun chopping more. (surprised with the huge size of the axe the owners had left for us). The weather turned out to be perfect for this time of year (sunny in November). Because of the cabin was located right at the end of the road we had complete privacy with the trail leading to Mount Norman right at the property line. We launched the boat at the Spit around 1 minute away and then docked it at the private dock in front of the cabin. Since the cove itself was so nice and secluded we did not spend much time out in the boat. The area under the dock was infested with monster rock crabs and all sorts of marine life. (there was a crab trap left on the dock by the owner) We also dropped a prawn trap in the water and it filled up with shiners and medium sized prawns which was a first because I never seen prawns in 8 feet of water. The cabin was clean when we arrived (I scanned the bathroom with a UV light and it was spotless). We visited some of the places on Pender island but had the most fun just hanging around the cabin and dock. Stayed there one week and never saw any other people (other than some passing boats). Got back to Vancouver and already want to go back to kingfisher cove. Had a great week.
