North Saanich House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Pendray House is a beautiful family 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.

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. 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 family 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

Reviewer Comments:

The house surpassed the pictures. It was very clean and open and the view of the harbor was spectacular. The quietness and location were perfect to get away from the city. EMR communications were excellent in providing good customer service. Sidney is a great little town. The Butchart Gardens are amazing. Victoria is close enough to go for dinner at "10 Acres". Plenty of historical things in Victoria to see. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we look forward to coming back again soon.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was great, as it had a post card type view that was amazing. We saw whales, owls, seals and dolphins from the patio on multiple occasions. It had plenty of seating, so our party of 10 had lots of room to stretch out. The kitchen had far more accessories then most home rentals do with plenty of room to cook, and dine. However, it did have some areas that should be addressed. The living room sofas were seen as very uncomfortable, and the area was over flowing with unneeded furniture and dusty nic nacs. It was hot, the location was void of fans, and some rooms didn't have a few window screens. So we left with mosquitoe bites everywhere. Additionally, there were areas that really are needing a deep cleaning, that are beyond what a house keeper would be expected to touch between rentals. There is a old junker car in the front yard, and a old rotten empty shed. So the front view was less desirable. Further the grill is in bad repair and has to be manually lit. All in all, we did enjoy our stay. The amount of room was perfect for us. Looking through the available rentals with enough room for 10 plus, it was a easy choice. We could see our selves hoping to return one day. Everyone we spoke to was nice and helpful. Sidney BC, was a hidden gem. Further the short drive from the ferry and airport was excellent.

The Location is great. The Beach and Patio are awesome. The only negative was that multiple people in our party complained that the bed sheets were not clean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Pendray House. IF you had called us during your stay, we could have corrected the issue. The sheets at this property are being replaced - perhaps they were more tired than dirty? The beach and patio are certainly a wonderful part of this property. A little piece of paradise.

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.

Reviewer Comments:

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.
