Looking to escape to the coast for some R&R?
Enjoy the ocean view and unwind in our spacious, comfortable home. Surrounded by nature, Serenity Now is perfect for a peaceful getaway and a great jumping off point for exploring the Sunshine Coast.

The space

Our home is located on the north side of Pender Harbour near Daniel Point on 2 acres of private, forested land. We have a great view of the ocean looking across to Texada Island and are a stone's throw from public access to the water. We're also walking distance to some warm, fresh water lakes as well as hiking trails that offer spectacular views of the Pender Harbour area. We're about a 10 minute drive to amenities that include groceries, restaurants, gas, marinas and more.

Inside you'll find all the comforts of home including modern appliances in the kitchens, wood stove, movies and games and all linens provided.

We have an ideal spot for families and group gatherings but we're equally suitable for romantic getaways. Pets are welcome here too!

The main house includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. There is also a king size trundle bed in the living room.
If you need more space, the Serenity Suite will sleep four more with 1 bedroom and a double futon in the living room. This suite also has a full bathroom and its own kitchen.

We are on a septic field. Please do not flush anything down the toilet but TP and the obvious.
We ask that you refrain from using the garburator and do not dump cooking grease down the drain as it clogs the holding tank and puts more waste into the septic field.

Please take any garbage/recycling you make with you when you leave. Bears are a real concern and leaving any garbage behind is as bad for them as it is for us. There is a landfill on Garden Bay Road.

Pets are welcome so long as you scoop the poop! We are in bear/coyote country so please watch your small pets when they are outside and don't leave them unattended.

Please place any used linens/towels on top of the washing machine in the laundry room so we know what to clean for the next guests.

Please don't leave any dirty dishes.

To avoid unwelcome critters, please make sure you don't leave any food outside or the BBQ lid open overnight. Please pull the BBQ away from the house if in use.

Please respect the neighbourhood. Most people come up to Pender to relax and get away from the noise. Try not to bring it with you.

Above all, please leave the house in the condition you found it (hopefully clean and tidy!)

We had an awesome stay at Serenity Now. The house suited our large group very well and everyone was comfortable. Marie was awesome in her communication with providing lots of info and responding very quickly. The home is in a very convenient location for our paddles and hikes. It is well equipped and even though we couldn't have a fire in the pit, we had a great time on the deck. We will be back! Mary Logue's gang

This was a fantastic place to enjoy the sunshine coast from! Tons of space, great lay out with the open kitchen, large back deck with an ocean view, big fire pit out front, couldn't have had a better place. Also lots of toys and floats for the lake available and the check in and out is so convenient. More than accommodating and super close to ocean, lakes, groceries in town and anything else you could need. Thanks so much and will definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at Marie's beautiful cabin. We've stayed in a number of cabins near Vancouver, and this one is a gem. The forest surroundings and ocean view are lovely, and the house is big and clean, with a well stocked kitchen & comfy rooms. It was easy to get find and convenient to get into. Lots of parking too. We had a great time having BBQs, hanging out on the deck, and relaxing in the family room watching the sunset. Our group loved the art and the vintage feel. Also, everyone was really pleased at how well-priced this place is. We booked it for a group of 12 adults for a short celebratory getaway (40th birthday) and everyone had a bed! Thank you Marie for hosting us at this great place! We will definitely recommend it to others!

My husband and I bought our dream vacation home in 2009 and have enjoyed every minute we've spent in the Pender Harbour area.
As animators, we share a passion for art and you may find some of our work, as well as the work of our friends hanging on the walls of our vacation home.
As your hosts, we endeavour to make your stay as comfortable and hassle free as possible - it's your vacation, after all.
