Overview

Photos and Description of the Pender Island vacation chalet rental

Private large spacious home and unique cottage with ocean front mountain views

Whale Pod Chalet sits high above the ocean on the oaks bluff: The view takes your breathe away. You are overlooking the Swanson Channel. This magnificent panoramic view starts at the San Juan Islands and moves onward to the Olympic Peninsula, Victoria, southern Vancouver Island. It stretches as far north as Nanaimo, the Canadian Gulf Islands, over to the mountains of the lower mainland and south to Mount Baker! This 360 degree view is one of the most spectacular views that beautiful British Columbia can offer. The ocean down below is home to a pod of orca whales, who can be seen up close from the chalet and cottage above, using the binoculars and telescopes situated within the structures. Your viewing pleasure is increased by eagles and birds, ferries, boats of many types , the surrounding forest. The fresh, clean ocean front air reawakens your senses. The buildings themselves also offer a unique and comforting experience. Whale Pod Chalet is 4 stories of awesome, hand built by the owner. It offers an amazing sundeck, a hot tub, an incredible amount of sleeping space with 6 bedrooms, a loft and a den. There are 3 bathrooms, including a shower, and two baths, one very large. It comes with a fully stocked kitchen, unique furnishing, and plenty of interesting items to enjoy. With all of this included Whale Pod Chalet is still very spacious and flowing. The location and design of this chalet offers its guests a wide open experience.

The Buddha Cottage is located a short distance down the hill from Whale Pod Chalet, and offers an experience very different. Instead of the all-around, open view, you are more tucked in. The yard offers tropical plants, 5 majestic ponds and waterfalls that flows through the yard and creates a very serene atmosphere. The natural beauty of the land around compliments this unique setting. From the large and spacious deck you get an ocean front view. There 5 queen beds all together, 3 in house, and two cabins outside. The bathroom offers a jet tub and shower. Two of the in house beds fold up so that this cottage can be flowing during day and cozy at night.

NOTE: Whale Pod Chalet and Buddha Cottage are available individually or together. We are available for weddings, retreats, and other events. Availability posted on this site is for Whale Pod Chalet only. For Buddha cottage availability contact by phone or email. Thank you
