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. Please be advised that VRBO lists my prices in US dollars.

Dreamy cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely and tranquil place. This cabin is hidden in the forest with a serene view, a soothing outdoor bath and a cozy fireplace. It's very well maintained, super clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend it for an escape and rejuvenation.

The cabin is lovely, well equipped, and a perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Sandra's place is wonderful, and we love to come back to this sanctuary in the woods. The outdoor clawfoot bathtub is our favorite and makes for a very tranquil relaxing time. The kitchen has a great stove and well equipped for cooking with oils, vinegar, spices and all the pots and pans you could need. The cabin is well-built and insulated to keep in the heat during the winter, making it very cozy, especially with the wood burning stove. The loft bedroom has idyllic views of the ocean, trees and blue skies, with lots of nice morning light. Being here feels like being in a sunny spa. The place is well kept and clean, and makes you feel right at home.

Warm and cozy cabin with unique decor

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique and cozy cabin. The décor and overall design is refreshing and a lot of care went into creating a lovely space. The outdoor tub was fabulous and beats a hot tub any day as it is chemical free, and overlooks the forest on a cute deck. You can even see the ocean through the trees as you soak. The rain shower is a nice treat as well with heated floors in the bathroom. We found the beds and pillows very comfortable with more forest views from the loft bedroom. We also loved the wood burning stove for the stormy nights we had. Thank you to Sandra for being so helpful and communicative with us and we have already booked our next stay here. :)

Great bathtub!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice place to stay and is fully equipped with a great kitchen and modern appliances. Although I'd definitely stay there in the summer, it leaves a bit to be desired in the winter. The cabin isn't cozy and warm which is what I look for in a winter get away. The couch is uncomfortable and there's no place for two people to curl up and read a book unless you want to go upstairs and lay on the bed but then you'd be far away from the wood stove. There are also no carpets on the floor and just one blanket for the couch so its a bit chilly.

That said the host is very accommodating and Pender Island is a wonderful place to visit with enjoyable walks and lots of beaches to explore.

Enjoyed our stay.

Although the weather didn't accommodate using the outdoor tub, we enjoyed the cabin and Pender Is. Did take in Joe's Cafe and walking. Thank you.
