About John Mann

Our family is spread between Vancouver and Toronto and we wanted a retreat where we could get together, to relax and get away from the city.

John Mann purchased this cottage in 2010

Why John Mann chose Pender Island

Our search for a family retreat was over as soon as we saw this property. Having looked at properties on all of the Gulf Islands, this was the only south-facing, low bank oceanfront/beachfront with expansive views of the water. We knew immediately that it was the one!

What makes this cottage unique

The ocean view is simply stunning and the beach is literally a stone's throw from the house. Whether we are sitting on the deck or in the living room, even at the sink in the kitchen, we can't take our eyes off of it and the abundant wildlife it is home to.

An absolute jewel of the gulf islands!

  • 5 of 5

A world of peace, tranquility, amazing wildlife experiences, best hikes- everything you could want! and all while staying in a lovely comfortable modern home watching the ocean and it's daily surprises. We've been entertained by seals, eagles, otters, deer etc. Owners are a delight to deal with. Only problems were that the time went by too quickly and how hard it was to leave!

Beautiful location, so peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage on Pender Island!

It is on the quieter end of South Pender Island, and the view from all the many windows and deck were breathtaking! The house itself is very modern, and a lot bigger than what it looks like in pictures and from the outside.

I would definitely suggest this place to others as we had a great stay being ocean front, watching the barges go by and sea life right out the window. Unfortunately didn't see any whales, but lots of seals!

Heavenly

  • 5 of 5

Extreme Tranquility. Staying here (even with 3 crazy children under the age of 7) was like being in another world. You must experience the bliss! If you want to unwind and forget about everything except the natural beauty of the universe you should come here. The house itself is bright, fresh, extremely clean and had everything we needed. Host was easy to reach and the whole experience was just perfect.
