About the property

Private Architect Designed Cottage

We invite you to relax and enjoy our beautiful, peaceful retreat nestled in five private acres on South Pender Island. The property is sunny and warm with ocean glimpses from the cottage, deck and bathtub. The open concept cottage includes a spacious full height sleeping loft, fully outfitted kitchen with granite counter tops, bathroom with walk-in shower, and outdoor bathtub. The eclectic furniture consists of an antique industrial table and stools, modern Danish sofa and ottomans, and a comfortable (and new) queen bed. The cottage, completed in 2013, is close to hiking trails, beaches, Poet's Cove Resort and Port Browning Marina. We try to reduce our environmental footprint through the use of environmentally friendly cleaning and bath products. We also have two bikes and a yoga mat for your use.

Cozy adorable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was really nice and stocked with more than we would have expected, down to the shampoo and bath soak provided! LOVED the outdoor bathtub on a cold rainy evening, and the fireplace was perfect!

Amazing! Over-exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so well designed and the owners thought of everything so thoughtfully that a guest may need! We thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing and quiet getaway and we loved the privacy we had as we did not need to interact with owners if we did not wish to, which we appreciated! The location is amazing with so much to do on the island. Very clean and comfortable stay.

Peaceful place

Very secluded and peaceful spot. Cabin is perfect for two, has everything you need. The outdoor tub is definitely a highlight! We had a great time exploring the islands.

Lovely spot for some much needed R&R

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, well designed cabin that felt like we were a thousand miles away from the city (which is exactly what we needed).

The place:

Amazing deck with a comfy bed, functional kitchen and a lovely rainforest shower and tub on the deck:)

The location:

On south pender (which I preferred to north) but it is a bit more out of the way and further from the grocery store - so keep in mind for supplies).

The hosts:

Lovely, attentive and available easily if needed.

Pender island:

Great for R&R/not a bustling place so limited for things to do/places to eat. Def recommend gowland point park, and the sea star winery.

Exactly what I was hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is beautifully appointed with all the comforts (indeed, even a few more) of home. It has a beautiful view of the water through the trees and a wrap around deck that allows you to find the sun all day long. Although it was very hot out when we were staying at Foxglove, the cabin remained cool throughout the day and night. We enjoyed soaking in the tub on the deck and cooking great meals with farm fresh produce that we purchased from the local markets. The cabin is remote enough that you won't encounter anyone should you wish, but also a short distance to all the amenities and a short walk to the beach. I can't wait to come back to Foxglove!

Happy with our choice!

  • 4 of 5

Everything about the rental was smooth and easy - no problems whatsoever. We really enjoyed our stay at Foxglove and would recommend it to a friend. Outdoor bath - totally worth it!!!
