Enjoy beautiful sunsets from your western-facing deck and living room at this newly renovated, private and accessible cottage in Pender Harbour. Listen to kingfishers, seagulls, eagles and all the songbirds of the forest as you stroll the side trail to your own private dock — perfect for sunbathing, swimming or exploring Gunboat Bay by canoe.

Bedrooms are at the back of the house, cool and inviting after a day spent playing in Pender Harbour and along the Sunshine Coast. The spacious living room is comfortable and laid-back, with a TV and Blu-Ray/DVD player for movies and a fireplace for off-season evenings spent relaxing or playing games. The cottage comfortably accommodates six people — our maximum capacity.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, water cooler, toaster and coffee maker, and is stocked with all dishes, cookware and utensils. Please take care of all garbage responsibly to avoid attracting wildlife such as bears and raccoons. Help care for our woodland creatures by not leaving out any items that would attract them.

Gunboat Haven is in one of the most beautiful locations in all of Pender Harbour, from which you can enjoy 200 feet of Gunboat Narrows oceanfront, distant mountains, incredible water views and a rare grove of cedars and firs surrounding this serene cottage. Two bald eagles have been known to nest in a tall tree directly across from our dock. Seals are a common sight in the waters around Pender Harbour.

The west deck has a barbecue, patio table and chairs, and is just off the living room via a sliding glass door. From the east deck take the stairs to the walkway down to the shore and dock.

Access to the waterfront is by a ground-level cedar walkway with railings, or a one-minute stroll down the trail to the embankment stairs and catwalk to the dock. The dock has year-round deep-water moorage.

Early morning coffee on the dock is a favourite for many of our guests, as are sunset barbecues and dinner on the west deck. The ocean breezes and forest fragrances are a tonic for the senses. You will start relaxing the minute that you arrive in this magical private haven, in one of the most beautiful harbours on the entire North American West Coast — Pender Harbour!
