Our ocean front vacation home was a boathouse that has been converted to a two bedroom cottage. The interior of the cottage has been recently renovated and includes the following:
• a fully equipped kitchen
• two large bedrooms with hardwood floors (one bedroom has a king size bed and a futon couch and the second bedroom has a queen size bed and a cuddle chair.
• two full bathrooms
• a large flat screen TV with DVD player
•. stacked washer & dryer
• wood burning stove
• comfortable furnishings
This is an exceptional ocean front property with over 300 feet of low bank level waterfront located in a very private setting on two-third acre. The converted boathouse is only 20 feet from the water and the large lot is flat so there are no hills to climb. The property features a deep water dock with access to fresh water and power and can accommodate up to a 40 foot boat. In addition, the property has a large glassed-in deck located over the water with gate access to launch kayaks or canoe. The owners have two kayaks for use by their guests. From the front of the living room, many hours could be spent watching boats and seaplanes arriving and leaving the harbour. At night, the place is serene and quiet. Many animals including deer, bears, eagles and sea otters have visited the property.
Some local attractions include hiking at Mount Daniel Park and Skookumchuk Narrows, ocean and lake swimming, boating, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, art galleries and Sunday Jazz at local pubs. Whether you are looking for an active or relaxing vacation, this is the place for you.
For your shopping needs, the village of Madeira Park is a 20 minutes drive from the cottage and it has a well stocked grocery store, pharmacy, credit union, a new spa, restaurants and pubs, liquor store, gift shops, etc.
Our cottage is a 40 minute scenic ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale and about an hour and 15 minutes drive up the Sunshine Coast Highway (Highway 101) to Garden Bay, Pender Harbour.
