About the property

Lovely level entry home built in 2008 on a sloping natural landscape lot. The home enjoys wide sea views to the west, sunsets galore from our 1200 sq. ft. cedar deck. The south and west sides of the house are almost all windows bringing the outside in and making for a very bright living space.A winding drive leads up to ample parking and to our level entry cottage style home. The neighbouring house on one side is quite distant and screened by trees and bamboo, there is no house on the other side so our home and deck are very private.

When you step up tp the glass entry door you'll see through to the deck and the views. There are two bedrooms the master with ensuite shower room has patio doors to the deck. The second bedroom is next to the main four piece bathroom. All floors are maple except for the entrance and the two bathrooms which are tile or concrete and heated. The kitchen/living/dining areas are one large room with a vaulted ceiling. There is a 12 ft. set of patio doors leading to the main deck area and off the dining area another 6 ft patio door leading to the BBQ area.

The main deck has six chairs around a table storage area as well as a double cedar rocker and a couple of 'zero gravity' recliners. There are sun umbrellas as we do get lots of sunshine.

The ensuite has a large walk-in shower either a rain shower or regular. The main bath has a tub with shower over.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, the ensuite and a walk-in closet. We love to wake up to the moonlight or ferry and freighter traffic so there are no draperies which may not suit some. The second or guest room has a queen bed and blinds.

The kitchen is great to work in and as this is our principal residence it's well equipped. Lots of dishes pots and pans and good knives. The cabinets are custom built for this home. We have a propane stove, a dishwasher and fridge freezer combination.

For your holiday we have a stacking washer and dryer as well as a clothes line on the deck

About Charles or Stephanie Newell

We are retired realtors who worked on Pender Island for many years keeping an eye on this very special lot. We now live here part time so want to share this space with others.

Charles or Stephanie Newell purchased this house in 2008

Why Charles or Stephanie Newell chose British Columbia Gulf Islands

We love this spot as we get the last rays of the sun year round. Lots of sunsets and very private. The homes around us are all well kept.

What makes this house unique

We first saw this home as a show home in Nova Scotia. It's very easy to live in being on one floor. Loads of sunlight from the three patio door plus many other windows and two skylights. In good weather the huge deck nearly doubles the size of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed at Steph & Chuck's house on Pender Island last summer. The house is located in a stunning location with views out to the Pacific. We were staying in a conservation area and we had deer come and visit us on a regular basis, eagles constantly flying over our heads, wood peckers, dragonflies were on constant display....and we did not had to leave their spacious balcony at their gorgeous home to see these delights. The main bedroom had the most amazing views with French door out into the was like waking up in paradise every morning.

The house is beautifully appointed with high quality and comfortable furnishings. Everything that was needed was provided for. The house is extremely well equipped as well as being stunning!

We also had the use of their car which was necessary forw coming to and from the ferry terminal, the shops and events on the island etc. Other than the balcony....Hope bay was our favourite spot for hanging out with a great seafood restaurant with great views.

There are lots of community events to attend on Pender Island and there is a great sense of community there.

We travelled to some of the other islands too however there are lots to do on Pender including sailing, kayaking and walking.

We loved our stay at Steph & Chucks and they were very helpful and accommodating.

Summer Solstice

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location to relax and enjoy the fabulous views and some amazing summer weather! Thank you to our hosts Stephanie and Chuck, even though you said you had no promises for sunshine.

The house is perfectly equipped, there was everything we needed and more; your music collection was most enjoyable!

We hope we will have the opportunity to return to this paradise on Pender.

First class house on Pender Island

  • 4 of 5

This is a first class vrbo property. The house is spacious and very clean and everything works very well. The view is stunning and is visible from nearly every room in the house as well as the large deck. The kitchen is very well appointed and the beds are comfortable. There are no window coverings in the house and while that accentuates the view it means you need to bring a sleep mask or wake at dawn. It also made the house very hot in the day. Overall we are very satisfied and would stay at the property again.
