Amazing place for an easy-going family get-together
We just finished renting both the chalet & the cottage for a week in late September to hold a small wedding (17 people in attendance). We were able to have the ceremony on the property (in the garden near the cottage) and then enjoy a week relaxing with family and friends. It was absolutely perfect for our needs: spacious, affordable, very private, with incredible views (we saw orcas from the property 3 separate times in one week) and a very easy-going, reasonable, flexible owner. The cottage is newer and fancier than the chalet, but both buildings have great views and were built thoughtfully in tune with the surroundings. The cottage is great for writing, yoga, and feels very peaceful and luxurious. The chalet is great for large, easy-going groups who don't mind a "lived-in" feel; some bedrooms are fancier and have better views than others, but the house has so much space everyone was able to relax and fully enjoy. Our group loved the whole property - one family member already arranged to rent it again next summer! Big kitchen and tables for family meals and board games, several decks, a hot tub with amazing views, many nooks and crannies to escape to. Pender Island has a lot to offer - we spent hours at Brooks Point and could have spent more. The summer farmer's market on Saturday is popular. We went hiking, kayaking/stand-up paddle boarding, visited various beaches...but really most of our time was spent relaxing with family and friends in the chalet. It is not easy to find a property this big on the Gulf Islands for this price. I know because I looked very hard! Excited to go back next summer.
If you're thinking of renting this place, run away as fast as you can. Place is very dated and needs tons of work. Beds and bedding smell so bad I had to sleep in my clothes so it wouldn't touch my skin. Gross.
Not like the pictures at all. Only thing nice is the view.
I highly discourage anyone renting this place. Certainly not worth the money he's asking!
Glad to be out of there! Will never return!
Customers failed to pay for the booking would not listen to reason had received a bogus contract showed them over 30 pages of correspondence with the person that actually booked and I have notes from all phone conversations. I lost $2000 with this booking I believe it was premeditated fraud
Well just spent 4 days there and that was more than plenty. The photos on the website are deceiving. Not as nice as it looks in those pics. Not as clean as it should be for the price. Sheets weren't even changed on one of the beds in the chalet. Property not kept up very nicely either. Nothing to do on this island especially if you bring kids along. Some locals not very friendly at all. Over all nothing what I expected. Very disappointed. will never go back The cottage was nice. Best thing there were the views.
When Jessica checked in I told her that three of her children where in the bed in question with there dirty boots on. She just laughed and did not tell them to get out.The group told me when they checked in that people on Pender Island had given them a hard time.Three times I had to go down to the local pub to drive some of them home Too drunk to drive and starting fights with the locals I could go on and on Have been renting for forty years and this is only the third bad booking Thank You Kevin
I rented the house and cottage for 9 nights for an annual knitting retreat in June. After 15 years on another island, the knitters voted that this was the best yet. Kevin was most agreeable and helpful with moving beds around to get the right combination of single and twin rooms. Lots and lots of extra clean sheets in the linen room. Towels were high quality and abundant, far superior to those provided in most rentals. Chef was generally pleased with the kitchen. Next year we will see about more shelves for food storage. We were providing gourmet meals 5 times a day for a week so had far more food and supplies than most groups would have.
The 35-45 age group went for long hikes each morning before breakfast, older ones tended to take their early morning coffee out to the sunny east-facing decks. So there was something for everyone before the serious knitting began on even more decks.
Yes, there is work to be done on the property, which is why I gave it four stars and not five. Kevin is trying hard to make improvements, but it is very difficult to get stable, reliable help on the islands. "Island Time" is very real, workers just don't turn up if the fishing is good, the hay needs cutting, or a child is sick. It's just not the same as renting a large house in Scotland where the family retainers live in a cottage on the property, or in Mexico with a caretaker catering to your needs. We are returning in June next year as this is the best self-catering property on the Gulf Islands and Southern Vancouver Island for a large group, and the pleasantest owner - and I have looked!
One of our most favorite vacation spots of all times!
We have stayed at this property 5 or 6 different times over the last 12 years and I can say it is our absolute favorite place to vacation. The house is big enough for extended family or friends, is comfortable if not luxurious, and you could not ask for more spectacular views. The whole vibe of the place is relax, relax, relax:-) Kevin was very accommodating and quite the interesting guy himself. I read other emails that speak negatively about this property and if you are looking for top of the line super modern this may not be the vacation spot for you but if you are looking for friendly locals, a great home owner and one of the most relaxing and glorious vacation homes ever this is the spot for you. So many great beaches to explore on the island! Stop in at the marina and buy live crab, live prawns that were the sweetest we have ever had or fresh fish catch of the day or charter a boat and fish or crab yourself. Our kids never had any problem finding something fun to do on island and they have fond memories of vacationing here! It was my stepfathers favorite place on earth and we are scheduling a date to return and release his ashes from this wonderful home away from home!
