Overview

About the property

Perfect for a Romantic Getaway, Outdoor Adventure or Family Get together!

Relax, unwind and unplug at our beautiful cottage, located in the Garden Bay, Pender Harbour area on the Sunshine Coast. A quiet, secluded and comfortable cabin, snuggled at the base of a 200 foot rock face overlooking a tranquil pond.

Situated in an area surrounded by lakes, mountains and ocean, the recreational choices are abundant - marinas, golf courses, water sports, hiking and biking trails . . . they're all close by.

If its swimming and sunbathing you want, guests enjoy access to a dock on one of the best swimming lakes in the area - exclusive use of a canoe is also included. Back at the cabin there are other activities such as Bocce, croquet and numerous board games. For the avid golfer we have a putting green and golf cage.

After a day exploring the area, unwind in front of a romantic fire or sit in peace and tranquility on the deck and enjoy the sounds of nature. End your day with a soak in the hot tub and a glass of wine or hot chocolate and marshmallows by the outdoor fire - evenings are especially memorable with more stars than you could ever hope to see in the city.

The open plan layout features a modern and very well equipped kitchen overlooking the dining room and great room with wood burning fireplace. French doors from both the living and dining area open up to an expansive deck with stellar views of the pond. Your living area has an entertainment center with a stereo and DVD player complete with a library of TV-series and movies.

There are two bedrooms, a loft area and a luxurious bathroom with slate floors and a walk-in shower with dual shower heads.

Experience what Rockridge Retreat has to offer in any season in the comfort of your private modern cottage.

It's perfect for a romantic getaway, an outdoor adventure or a family get together!

Clean, well-appointed cottage with many activities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Rockridge Retreat. We found the cottage to be very clean and in excellent condition, with many clear directions about the cottage and for local activities - hiking, swimming, biking, paddling... lots to do! We all loved swimming and canoeing at Mixal Lake, just a few minutes walk away, and the kids loved searching for frogs around the pond. The hot tub was a hit, especially on the cooler days, and we enjoyed the lawn games too. Our kids, aged 7 and 10, slept comfortably in the loft upstairs. The kitchen was a pleasure, with everything we needed for cooking meals, and groceries not far away in Madeira Park. We met some of the neighbours, who were very friendly - though none of the other houses are close-by, or even visible, from the cottage - a real retreat! We hope to be back again!

Very tranquil and relaxing retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Very peaceful retreat. Great access to the lake with a great swimming dock. The home was very well equipped, well appointed and spotlessly clean.

I would recommend this property to my friends.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay at Rockridge Retreat. The property was beautiful!! Our days usually included doing a hike at one of the nearby trails, afternoons at the dock at Mixal lake, and happy hour back at the cabin. We enjoyed watching the pond (saw a beaver 2x!), playing croquet and using the golf net. We had 6 adults at one point and a baby and the cabin was still very comfortable.

Fun relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying at the cottage for the long weekend. It is very comfortable and has everything we needed. The canoe, golfing, and other amenities made it so that we did not have to travel to entertain ourselves. The kitchen is well stocked and it was great to relax in the hot tub after a long day of playing. So close to Vancouver and yet we really felt like we got away from it all. Thanks so much, we look forward to returning soon!
