Overview

Lund Cottage Rental Photos and Description

New 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom, cottage on the edge of the town of Lund.

Our magical Lund cottage on 3 acres of waterfront property is just 2 km across the water from SAVARY ISLAND, 2 km south of the COPELAND ISLANDS, 8 km from DESOLATION SOUND, and only a short walk from the Lund Harbour Marina and NANCY'S BAKERY.

Note: The VRBO website currency default is $US.

RENT BOTH FLOORS OR ONLY THE UPPER FLOOR:

The rates are for the use of both floors, though if you have a smaller group (5 or less) and don't wish to rent the full place, we also have pricing for the rental of only the upper floor (please enquire, since this website's format doesn't have a way for us to post those rates).

Access Savary Island's sandy beaches easily, while enjoying cottage conveniences and features not found on the island. We even have made arrangements with Terracentric Coastal Adventures, so that you can conveniently hire them to take your family by water directly from our bay to a Savary Island beach for a worry-free day trip... no lugging your beach stuff up and over Savary by foot while trying to keep your kids happy along the way ;) Or rent kayaks from Terracentric, or even have them take you on one of their boat tours of Desolation Sound.

Private beach, yard, and bay (3 acre property)

Stunning west-facing views

Every window frames a view of nature

Sleeps up to 10 comfortably : each room is very unique

Spacious kitchen and huge decks

Lower level is a kid’s play & sleep dreamland

About Paul Shore

We are a family of four (our infant son didn't come on the kayak trip that this photo was taken on) who love the outdoors and the peace the ocean brings.

Paul Shore purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Paul Shore chose British Columbia

We vacationed in the area for years and always dreamed to build once in our lives. We found this unique property back in 2005 that brought us calmness when we stood at its shore. Its proximity to Savary Island, Desolation Sound, and the amenities of the town of Lund finalized our decision to purchase it. Now our dream cottage is ready to share!

What makes this cottage unique

As our architect Sue said recently...

'The house was designed around the idea of creating open spaces with an abundance of natural light, views, real materials contrasting and working together, shadows, strong viewpoints and transparency throughout. So as the light, sea and skies change throughout the seasons, you'll see the house change too....through shadows and reflections. It's a bit like living in a poem, I imagine. This is when architecture is most powerful...when it elevates our experience of nature and thus of being alive.'

***** Awesome *****

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip! House was very comfortable and nice. Views were spectacular. Ocean breeze and sounds were amazing. LOVED the outdoor shower, and used everyday. Paul (owner) is very pleasant, helpful and responsive. Private beach/bay is wonderful with oysters, mussels, starfish, crabs, jelly fish, and more. Kayaking was epic. Savory Island was MAGICAL! Christine at Terracentric in Lund was very helpful with arranging guided tours. Nancy's Bakery, Boardwalk Restaurant and Laughing Oyster Restaurant were all good, but not great. With a hot tub, this place would be perfect. Nevertheless, we would HIGHLY recommend a stay here.

Lund magical getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a serene private getaway, this beautiful modern oceanfront home is the jewel you've been looking for. Strategically set amongst the forest, incorporating ocean views from every room in the house, its three massive decks set a wonderful stage for reading, bird, seal, and bear watching, dinners, and yoga stretching. The kayaks provided make for a wonderful easy paddle across to Savary island which holds its own magic to explore. We hope to return with our friends and kids to explore more of this tranquil place. The home is perfect for family getaways and reunions. The Shores were fantastic with quick email responses to any questions we had. They have created a home that is the perfect model of feng shui of modern living.

Great accommodation in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to bring our friends from the UK with their 3 young children. There was plenty of space for all 4 kids and 4 adults. The views from the decks were amazing. The hammocks on the lower deck were very popular. We spent plenty of time on the water using the kayaks. Christine at Terracentric in Lund was very helpful with arranging a guided paddle and a zodiac trip into Desolation Sound. The owners were very helpful and we would highly recommend a stay here.

Palatial wood cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were imagining a little cottage in the forest. We found ourselves in an exquisite home, fully equipped with every convenience and enviable luxury, with our own beach. There are three kayaks for exploring the islands nearby. We took a few hours hike through glorious forest to arrive at an almost endless freshwater lake. We enjoyed sightings of fantastic birdlife and marine and land mammals. Christine in the village 10 minute walk away took us on an all-day tour by zodiac into the vast expanse of Desolation Sound, where we enjoyed a yummy picnic lunch on a beautiful beach in the middle of a turquoise ocean paradise.

We had no car and this presented no problem — took a taxi from the town of Powell River, and the people at the fantastic restaurant Laughing Oyster picked us up and dropped us off, and we enjoyed the tiny village atmosphere of Lund. Mostly, however, we didn't want to go anywhere, because of the beauty of the house itself, crafted with understated elegance and romantic ambience, boasting decks with sea views, outdoor shower, facilities for water activities, and the highest quality kitchen equipment and crockery. Ideal for a honeymoon couple or a large family. We were two people on honeymoon, and didn't feel like we were in the large house that it is, because the downstairs rooms are self-contained, but those additional rooms are valuable if many beds needed.

The Shores' house is a home that one would feel comfortable living in permanently, and well worth making it the primary destination even if you're travelling right across the world to get to it, as we did.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Shores at Lund was a perfect family getaway for my family, my brother's family and my parents. There was a ton of space so we could all hang out together easily, or retreat to our own spaces for some family downtime. Highlights were spending time on the huge outdoor decks (playing charades into the sunset!), the outdoor shower, use of the kayaks (as I also brought my paddleboard), quick walk to Nancy's Bakery, and proximity to Savary Island. I had never been to that area of the Sunshine Coast and this was an incredible introduction!

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our three-day stay at this fabulous location could only be rated perfect. I thought we had a well-equipped, perfectly designed kitchen in our home, but the kitchen at Shores is a prize-winner beyond expectation. The entire home is perfect in every detail....truly a joy to experience. We have told our family and friends this is a MUST to plan a stay and enjoy the property and Lund area. Thankyou for affording us this special opportunity.
