Private, comfortable and bright. This cozy cottage looks out onto gardens and the property backs onto a park. Access walking trails right without having to drive. Just walk through the back gate to get to the Disc Golf park or go up the hill for a beautiful view from Lively Peak Park. The professionally built, Japanese-influenced cottage features lots of custom wood touches, fir flooring and a full kitchen.

The space
"This place is a sanctuary," guests tell us. "So quiet and private."

You'll appreciate the sun and the wicker loveseat on the porch. You look out on our garden with many flowering trees, blooming shrubs and perennials.

The property is fenced to keep deer out. You may see deer on the other side the fence.

Inside, there's a sitting area with comfy chairs and a built-in desk with a new typing chair. The bed is queen size, very comfortable, with luxury linens.

The kitchen has a four-burner stove with an oven, a bar fridge, dishes, pots and pans, kettle, toaster; everything you're likely to need. We include sugar, salt, good selection of spices, complimentary teas, coffee, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. On the porch, there's a Weber gas barbeque. During hot summer weather, you'll appreciate the ceiling fan inside.

A table and chairs are set up outside for al fresco meals. In really hot weather, the shade of a big cedar is a nice place to read or nap.

There’s a library in the cottage with murder mysteries and lots of books on writing. This is a wonderful space for one person and a terrific romantic getaway for two. It is not suitable for more than two adults. Couples with a baby are welcome to bring a playpen for baby to sleep in. People working on books, theses or reports can request a typing chair.

A quiet dog is welcome. We ask that s/he have nails clipped and up to date flea treatment. We have a friendly Golden Doodle so getting along well with other animals is a must.

Our location is wonderfully central. It takes two minutes to drive to the to the swimming area at Magic Lake, the ocean at Medicine Beach, or the Slow Coast Cafe above Medicine Beach. It's five minutes drive to the Driftwood Center to buy groceries, fifteen minutes to the ferry, the library, the Nu-to-You thrift store, or Hope Bay.

We are eco-friendly, with a small footprint on a large lot. The property has a pond and a wetland. Plantings have been designed by a landscape architect. Many are bird and butterfly friendly, and fragrant. We use micro-irrigation and water-saving fixtures.

Relax. Get comfortable. Unwind. It's very peaceful here.

Guest access
Guests have a private seating area under a big cedar. There's a table for al fresco dining and two comfortable chairs. There's always an area to sit outside in sun or in shade, depending on the temperature!

Other things to note
Ferries in the summer are often fully booked. If you are traveling from Vancouver with a vehicle, reserve ahead of time. On long weekends, ferries will be completely full--please book early! Ferries from Victoria to Pender don’t take reservations, so getting there at least an hour before departure in summer will make sure you get on.
