Vancouver Island House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

Pendray House is a beautiful vacation home located on the beachfront near Victoria BC. Enjoy amazing views across the ocean of the Saanich Inlet to the Malahat Mountain range on Vancouver Island. The waters are very peaceful on the inlet which makes the swimming fantastic in the summer, walks along the beach, hunting for Gooey Ducks at low water, rock pooling and all the joys of playing on the oceanfront.

The Pendray House is located on a no-through road, there is very little traffic which sets the scene for the peace and quiet you can enjoy while on vacation. The house is two levels and was built in 1948, it has just undergone a complete renovation to bring up to the 21st Century, yet still retaining the traditional beach cottage feel. A path leads up to the front door which gives you first sight of the sea and the views you will enjoy during your stay. Walk through the entrance hall and into the open plan living area. This area covers the living room, dining room and the kitchen all with great views of the ocean. There is a feature fireplace made from river rock from the Fraser River, the original owners in 1948 hired their children to collect the stones and were given 1 cent per stone each. The living room features two sofas, the fireplace, a wide screen television and integrated HIFI system which has speakers in the living areas and outside on the terrace. The dining area has a large table next to the kitchen with spectacular views of the sea for you and your family can enjoy while sharing a meal. There is a large kitchen with all modern cooking amenities ready for those chefs among you. On the main floor there is three queen bedrooms, the master bedroom includes an ensuite while the other two bedrooms share a large bathroom featuring a claw foot tub and walk-in shower.

Take a walk downstairs to the lower level and you will find a movie room with a large screen TV for the kids with bean-bag chairs ready for them to lounge and enjoy a movie after a day on the beach. A full size bathroom with walk-in shower which includes a seat below the shower nozzle for guests staying downstairs. Two large bedrooms are located on the lower floor that feature two pairs of single bunk beds in each room suited perfectly for children and teens.

Both floors have access to the large terrace on the waterside of the house, which is a great place to relax. The terrace has dappled shade, if you want full sun, just go down to the lower deck on the beach. The house faces southwest, and gets beautiful sunsets and sunshine all day. There is direct access to the beach from the house and since there is no public access point close to this beach it provides a very private feel.

The house is located on west side of the Saanich Peninsula in the community of North Saanich. Located only 10 minutes drive from the B.C. Ferries docks to Vancouver and the Gulf Islands and the Victoria Airport. There is seaplane service to Vancouver about 5 minutes away at Patricia Bay. Downtown Victoria is a 30 minute drive away. Sidney by the Sea, which is the local shopping area, has many good restaurants, whale watching, and seaside attractions to experience. The world famous Butchart Gardens is only 15 minutes drive and the locally renowned Deep Cove Chalet Restaurant is only 5 minutes drive. There is a walk on ferry shuttle on the pier in Sidney which will take you to Sidney Island, part of the Gulf Islands National Park, which features large sandy beaches and great walks to view wildlife there. Saanich Peninsula has golf courses, sailing charters, horseback riding adventures, fishing charters, and local wineries to experience. There are many hiking trails in the region for walking and biking, so you will always find lots to do for those of you who wish to be active.

Please come and enjoy the Pendray House and make your next great vacation here on the west coast of Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia a memorable one.

Please note that term rates apply for the summer peak season period only unle

Our four kids, 7 to 12, never got bored searching for sea creatures at low tide.

EMR staff was waiting when we arrived. We had one small issue early on and EMR were on it right away. Beautiful cottage setting. The property was a bit tired looking but fit the cottage appeal. Great beach access perfect for groups with kids. Our granddaughters spent many many hours exploring the beach and water. Accommodated our group that had people from 7 to 87. Large patio with huge table and lots of deck chairs was our favorite spot. Great bird watching. Easy access to Sidney and Victoria and all the sites in the area. We would definitely rent this property again.

This property has an amazing 'homey' feel to it. This property is less than 5 minutes away from Victoria BC International Airport, less than 10 minutes to Sidney by the Sea, and about 30 minutes away from downtown Victoria BC. We were able to see so much during our stay and we always looked forward to getting back to the house. Had my coffee in the backyard every morning watching the birds - humming birds, herons, osprey, bald eagles, woodpeckers, and rabbits running through the yard. So peaceful, relaxing, and everyone in the party was happy.

Reviewer Comments:

Our guests gathered at Pendray House for 4 nights to attend our son's wedding and travelled from the USA and England. We knew it would not be easy to accommodate 14 adults when we started our search for a vacation rental in the Sidney area, but feel extremely lucky to have found this beautiful rental property right on the water. The rental procedure was easy and straight forward with good communication between us and the managers, who responded to questions and were very helpful on arrival. The house is quite spacious and has 3 very good bathrooms, with ample hot water and towels. The kitchen was large enough to cope with group breakfasts and lunches. The real advantage of this property though is the delightful outside space and access to the little beach. Our guests were able to spend a lot of time on the deck and beach, enjoying the incredible views across the inlet with the ever changing light reflecting different colors and moods on the water. The large table out there was used for lunch and dinner and would be the perfect spot for a BBQ. We saw an eagle and seals and enjoyed the tranquility of the neighborhood and easy access to shopping in Sidney. There is adequate on street parking outside the house and some little trails to take a walk and explore the coastline. This house was a perfect vacation rental and none of us wanted to leave. What a wonderful experience for our family and friends in beautiful British Columbia!!

A beautiful house surrounded by beautiful scenery for my staff team getaway. The rooms were perfect for what we needed and the kitchen was well stocked. My team enjoyed having easy access to the beach and the not too far drive to Victoria for outings. Unfortunately, neither the WIFI or cable TV worked during the entirety of my team's stay and everyday there were phone calls asking for the owners which got a bit annoying.
