We (Daniel and Gaylene) moved to the Pender Harbour area permanently in spring 2011 from Langley, BC. Daniel is French-Canadian and grew up in a small town north of Montreal and is an amazing guy regarding anything electrical, electronic and has a great talent for designing and is constantly 'tweaking' our property to make it an interesting place to visit. He enjoys prawn fishing and other fishing and is often out on his boat. Gaylene was born in Vancouver, lived in England for 9 years, then on a sailboat for a year in the Mediterranean before returning to B.C. in 1995, and has travelled extensively. She loves gardening, rowing her little boat, bird watching, swimming, hiking, cooking. Daniel and Gaylene enjoy the wildness and serenity of the Pender Harbour area. By the way, ask Daniel to show you his new Slingshot fancy car or take you for a quick ride up (or down) the small hill to the wharf in his John Deere (if you want!)
Gaylene purchased this house in 2009
We had been visiting Pender Harbour for a few years, and dreamed of having a house on the ocean, and loved the house immediately when we saw it, especially the breathtaking ocean and mountain views. We are so close to the ocean, it is only about a stone's throw from the house!
It's all about the water view here! ...not to mention the peacefulness of the place. The air is so clean and the water is beautiful and clear. We love to watch all the boats coming and going. There is never a dull moment. Being on a peninsula, the house is very quiet - no traffic noise from road above at all! It is nice to walk, jog or bicycle around our neighbourhood. Deer, eagles and seals can frequently be seen, and other wildlife. The boat can accommodate a 28-foot boat for guests. There is a gazebo-like structure on the wharf where it is nice to sit on days if there is a breeze, enjoy the sunsets or watch seals playfully popping up to watch you! You could even throw a line in and fish right from the wharf. There is an area in the forest with water trickling from a natural spring, dripping over a huge boulder into a trough which deer and birds alike use often...very 'zen-like'! We also added an enclosed flower garden with a few herbs. There is also another beautiful area on upper level for guests - a gazebo with seating area. There is also an uncovered 200 sq ft deck that guests never want to leave (a nice addition to the 80-foot long covered deck that guests already enjoy). The ocean views are endless and the whole place is very relaxing. Sometimes guests have plans of catching up on reading, but find themselves unable to stop gazing at the view and doing just plain nothing.
The property is very private and about an acre in size and we give guests lots of privacy, unlike a bed and breakfast. The outdoor cooking area with 2-burner propane stove and small barbeque is another cooking area in addition to the kitchen in the suite. Nothing like being outside while cooking!
The unique property is on side of a mountain on Francis Peninsula Road, and there are seldom cars driving by, yet is only about 5 minute drive from Highway 101. No traffic noise!
We loved our stay in this beautiful suite. The view was amazing from every window. Gaylene and Daniel were very helpful in suggesting hikes in the area and local restaurants. When we weren't out and about, we enjoyed sitting on the deck, watching the birds, and taking in the incredible landscape. The interior of the suite was extremely clean and the king bed was very comfortable. Thanks again Gaylene and Daniel for making our vacation perfect.
Our four days at the Wharf Waterfront Suite were spectacular! From the moment we arrived Gaylene & Daniel were so warm and welcoming. They are wonderful hosts! The suite was immaculate, spacious and well appointed with everything we needed. The views from the deck are amazing. There are blankets to cozy up in while we watched the boats and wildlife. We saw so many birds and hummingbirds on the beautiful property we lost count. Daniel got a wonderful fire going in the outdoor gazebo. We had so much fun baking a pizza in the wood stove - you have to try it! We'll be back!
We absolutely loved our stay at The Wharf in Medera Cove with Gaylene & Daniel as our hosts. We could have stayed for so much longer but still got to see so much..the birds, sea lions, seals, old growth forest hikes and harbour views have been our fave! The home is set up with the basics for cooking so bring what you can over on the ferry. The beds are comfortable and the room spacious. The best part is that you are tucked away into the hill and feel so cozy.
We hope to go back again and see more Sunshine Coast with more tips from our fantastic host and hostess!
We had an amazing weekend here and were in absolute awe of the scenery. Seals were doing their mating splashes in front of us, Eagles soared above and a variety of birds everywhere. Sitting on the porch was so peaceful. My daughter and I would sit there in awe in the morning in disbelief of what we were seeing. The accommodation was spotles and Gaylene and Daniel were absolutely fantastic hosts. Full of information, helpful and they even found a wine aerator for my bottle of Merlot. I wholeheartedly would recommend this place but make a note that it is not suitable for children under 10 as Gaylene indicates on the website. The driveway and path to the wharf provides you with a super glutes workout but for those of you not inclined to steep inclines, Daniel has the best cart to drive you up and down the hill.
Our stay was like visiting family without the drama, Gaylene
And Daniel are very kind and giving people doing what it takes to make you feel at home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the view is amazing from our bed room and the deck.
The wild life is abundant with dear, fawns, seals ,eagles, otters and others.
The amenities are five star and very comfortable. It is a great area for hiking, walking, swimming and sight seeing. With our canoe at the dock we were able to go paddeling anytime we wanted to.
All told it was a very enjoyable time! Thanks you guys.
The perfection of Pender and your Wharf Suite are unsurpassed! All of our dreams came true! Climbed Pender Hill, rowed into and around all of the bays, circumnavigated Francis Peninsula and hiked the Francis Park Trail - all magnificent! We loved the birds, your immense deck, the clothes line, the vistas - but most of all your kindness and encouragement of our adventure. Our dear little wooden boat - Loon - was properly introduced to Canadian hospitality and waters - deep thanks.
Relax at a unique, tranquil, oceanfront hideaway, nestled on the mountainside of a peninsula at the entrance to beautiful Pender Harbour (over 50 km of meandering shoreline). You are our only guest in this secluded paradise! The 1,000 plus sq. ft. suite in the lower level of our house is the ideal base from which to do many trips! We’re only minutes away from many warm lakes. We are only a 3-min. drive away from beautiful Francis Point Marine Park. The walk is a 1-hour easy round-trip from parking area. Eco-sensitive area with many unusual plants. Small trail (through old growth trees) leads to sea and Francis Point Lighthouse – popular area for scuba divers and kayakers. Great views of Vancouver, Texada Island, and some Gulf Islands. Take a day trip to Princess Louisa Inlet (a beautiful, scenic example of a fjord on the west coast. The almost mile-high cliffs rise from quiet waters with over 60 cascading falls (best in about June at snow melt). Chatterbox Falls flows year round. Charter a boat and go prawn/salmon fishing! You might even see a killer whale from the suite. Sorry, but absolutely no children under 10 years of age allowed on property or in suite.
