About Mike McLean

Mike and family live in North Vancouver.

Mike McLean purchased this house in 2001

Why Mike McLean chose British Columbia Gulf Islands

On a Mother's Day trip to Pender, we fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of the Island. We enjoy exploring the numerous beaches and coves. In 2003 we built our dream home. We love to escape the busy city whenever we can to recharge!

What makes this house unique

We built this house on a rocky ridge to capture the spectacular views. We love the high vaulted post

and beam structure with lots of windows and skylights to let the sunlight in. We enjoy coffee on the deck watching the sun come up in the morning, and boats sailing by.

We had a great time staying at this home away from home. Great open concept house with a lovely kitchen. Fabulous views and right next door to mount Norman. You can't beat this fantastic find. Also loved the hot tub!

Fantastic family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This jewel of a place was just what we were looking for in a relaxing getaway during the March break. The place was as the photos showed - clean, spacious, well equipped, lots of room for your belongings, and a kitchen that has everything. The craftsmenship shows well in the inside - high ceilings and windows to let in the sun from all nooks. The bedrooms are are a good size - the loft at the top scored high with my son who enjoyed being able to look at the ocean boats from his bed in the morning. We were wanting a place with a hot tub - and this scored high for us with views both during the day and the starry nights. The place is pretty central for exploring both North and South Pender. Overall, this place exceeded expectations and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on the island

We had a great time in this beautiful house. A great location, very relaxing with everything we could need.

The owner Mike was brilliant and at hand to answer any questions or queries. The hot tub was an added bonus.

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our son, spent a great week here. The house is very well equipped with everything you could desire. Great kitchen, fantastic views, and terrific location. We used it as a base for kayaking, bike riding, hiking and playing disc golf. I cannot wait to return to it in the future.

Pender Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Mike the owner was very responsive and helpful. The rental process was smooth and the property was as expected. This is a nice modern cabin with a great view, plenty of cookware options and a nice open great room. It was also nice to be right next to the trail to hike up Mt. Norman right from the front door.

This is definitely a high quality option for those who are looking for a place to stay on Pender Island. The only downside for our particular stay was the house is facing northeast which limited the amount of direct sunlight. Those vacationing in summer should not have the same problem, although the sun will set a bit earlier, as Mt. Norman is directly behind the house.

Car: recommended

Mount Norman hiking trails right out the front door. Numerous beaches throughout the islands. Launch your kayak or small boat at Mortimer spit and explore the shoreline. Crab fishing off the local docks. Driftwood center offers grocery shopping, bakery/cafe/internet, book store, liquor store, and many more...
